Myself and two friends just got back from West Bay Lodge. We found the accommodations very charming, rustic and nicely decorated. It was very clean, well kept and new. The rooms were not large, but just the right size for the 3 of us and found them well equipped and nicely decorated with a tropical island charm. We found that it was very reasonably priced, and the location was good with a short walk to the beach. The breakfasts were excellent, and we looked forward to it them each morning. We also enjoyed playing with, and feeding the friendly parrots in the restaurant each morning at breakfast as well, (my favourite ones are Miss Cleo and Poncho) . The staff was very friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange and book our activities, as well recommended taxis etc. Milos and Celeste were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately it rained and was overcast for 3 of the seven days that we were there, (but this is typical weather for the rainy season, as we were told by the locals), and we almost didn't get to Roatan due to flight cancellations out of Atlanta GA from the snow storm that disabled the city. Our flight was very late arriving, but we still had a ride waiting for us at the airport. My only negative feedback, was the balcony sliding screen door on our room was broken, which prevented us from keeping the flies and mosquitos out while sitting on the balcony and could not get as much air circulation and breeze into the room to help let the heat out (although the rooms were completely air conditioned - we did not really need to use it because the temperatures were pleasant and could get enough of a breeze to keep the room a comfortable temperature). We also had a difficult time regulating the hot water in the shower, as it went hot and cool while trying to take a shower. The bathroom was very nice, clean and new with nice amenities, and fresh towels daily. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and utensils for our cooking needs and was supplied with a variety of spices etc which was an unexpected bonus. There was also a water dispenser in the room with safe drinking water, and we rented a cell phone while there also so we could call home. We could also borrow free DVD's from the lodges personal library - which was good during the rainy weather. There was construction on the property, but the owners did their best to try not to let the construction interfere on our vacation, the workers did not start until we were awake. The living room couch and chair were a little uncomfortable to sit in, but when you go there, you don't really go to hang around in the room, and this is only a minor unimportant detail. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves, the friendly and safe atmosphere, and the beach, snorkelling and coral reef was the best I have ever seen by far. I would recommend this location, and would consider going back for another visit because it was very enjoyable.
