Perfect for a 3 star hotel. Great location close to the dive shops. We wanted a 3 star feel…to be a bit more rustic and feel very “local” and it for just that. Average bed - not great but not bad. Read reviews before booking and all seemed pretty on par… some towels were very worn yet others were good quality. So ya, a good 3 star place. Shower pressure not great but as my boyfriend would say, at least the tiles were pretty ha! Elvia at the Argentina bar was amazing - great service, great personality, would totally recommend for a stay if your aim is to dive all day.

We stayed here on the recommendations from our local dive shop. It is a great West End location to the dive shops and the beach is across the street but the hotel only offers basic no frill accommodations. The kitchenette included a tiny old propane stove, sink and small fridge. The room and bath area is very dated but we all agreed the beds were comfortable. I'd give the location 5 stars, hotel 2 stars, and staff 4 stars so the average is 3.6 or 4 stars. The restaurant next door is amazing and guests get a discount too. I have hearing aids so I slept well but my wife and the other couple complained about loud dogs barking and a noisy rooster. They used ear plugs and slept better. The price per room is the same as other similar west end hotels (very reasonable) so to get a nicer hotel room expect to pay 50% to 100% more.

this is a great location but when i was there around Nov, i was given the last room on the row by the trees, and when it rained, frogs came out after dark and made the loudest noises ever, it sounded like hundreds and thousands of clowns honking behind your window. at first i thought it really was somebody trying to be funny, then i realized they were frogs. Then the neighbor's dogs were going at it every night, and nobody would shut them up or take them inside. what a nightmare. beside this and not having a coffee machine in your room, it was a nice, clean room. staff are friendly. would i stay there again, more than likely no. not if i can't get any sleep.

A very comfortable hotel with a good restaurant right on the beach on the quieter end of West End. Not a luxury resort, but a very clean and well maintained small hotel with a nice garden in a good location. A/C is available but extra - I didn’t need it when I was there, so saved a bit; that’s a nice feature. The wifi, however, is not great. One tip: my room did not come with shampoo, but the grocery store next door sells single use “ketchup packets” of various brands of shampoo and conditioner.

I just spent 8 nights at Posada Arco Iris with my 21-year-old daughter. We did the stay and dive package with Nature divers ( right next door ) and the hotel proved to be perfect for us. Right next to the dive shop and many good restaurants. The room was super clean, the beds were comfy and the AC was cold. The property is cover in plants but only steps away from the beach. The staff was super friendly and took care of setting up our Covid-Test. Without question, we will choose Posada Arco Iris and Nature Divers on our next trip to Roatan.

Stayed here for 3 nights, it was great! Very unique and very bungalow style. It’s not a luxury resort so just set your expectations. However the staff is amazing, very relaxing atmosphere, some rooms do and some don’t have AC so keep that in mind and ask if needed. Great place to disconnect from normal life!!

My friend and I spend a week at Hotel Posada Arco Iris in early June 2021. We found it to be a lovely place to stay, in a beautiful and picturesque corner of Roatan, steps from the beach and and easy walk from numerous restaurants and dive shops. The view from our balcony was incredible, and we enjoyed lounging on the hammock and eating meals at our patio table. The hotel has friendly and accommodating staff. The price was really good for the area, although not quite on par with backpacker hostels. I deducted one point for a general lack of creature comforts - the hotel doesn't really offer any amenities (i.e. business center/printing, morning coffee, gym/pool/etc), when the outdoor noises are loud (birds, construction, etc) you absolutely hear it, rooms with AC cost extra, you have to purchase your own drinking water, the bathroom taps run cold and, perhaps most importantly, the Wifi is very unreliable (this may not be the case for everyone; however, my friend and I both had continuous Wifi issues throughout our one week stay). Luckily, we came to Roatan to scuba dive so we didn't have a serious need for Wifi, but if you're a digital nomad-type - especially if you're planning to upload files or get on Zoom calls during your stay- I would reconsider booking elsewhere. Wifi seems to be an issue all over Roatan but we repeatedly had to leave the hotel and find a cafe where we could go to send emails. One nice bonus: we were able to get an on-site Covid test for $55 USD. We booked it through the hotel staff a day and advance and got the results later the same day. With all of that in mind, it's still a very comfortable and convenient place to stay on Roatan!

I have just returned form my first trip to Roatan and stayed at Posada Arco Iris for seven nights with my friend. The one bedroom accommodation had a double bed in the bedroom and one in the main room. We had a kitchenette with full dishware. The room was on the second level "in the treetops" with a view of the beach and sunset. Everything was spotlessly clean. The deck on the front had table, chairs, and hammock. All staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and wanted to ensure a perfect stay. They arranged for airport transfers, bottled water for the room, and Covid testing on sight. These all were at minimal cost. The location is perfect allowing you to walk to all of the West End businesses or take a water taxi to West Bay for $6pp r/t. Beach in front of the property is small but clean. There is a small store next to the hotel for basic needs. I highly recommend this cute, clean, quaint, and adequate lodge when you visit Roatan.

What can I say? Posada Arco Iris is a haven in a world filled with madness. From the first time I saw this place (15 years ago) it was love at first sight. Centrally located on Half Moon Bay in the West End of Roatan it offers old world charm and charisma. The setting is reminiscent of the long lost Caribbean. Nestled steps from the sea in a verdant jungle: vines, trees, plants and Roatan bunnies. The rooms are spacious, restful and just lovely. Staff are warm, welcoming and so helpful. I've traveled the Caribbean far and wide from 5 star hotels to hostels and there is no place I would rather be than Posada Arco Iris and the lovely island of Roatan. Bonus is the Argentinian Grill is located on property with great food, ambience and a spectacular view of the sea.

This was our 3 rd time staying here, the staff is so friendly. When we arrived we realized we got a room with out a/c my husband asked if we could change, we had a new room immediately. The restaurant offered 12% off and was absolutely amazing. We were walking distance from everything. The reason we love this place is that it was so clean. It is like staying in a tree house, the birds are so joyful to listen to. Karolina is so wonderful to work with and very responsive when I emailed her. We will definitely be back again.
