Most folks in the US book themselves. Buy your plane ticket and pick a place to sleep. The resorts will pick you up at the airport. The home/condo rental agencies like the one I use will arrange a car, pickup, maid, chef, babysitter, groceries, etc.
Roatan is not a huge tourist place so not many of the large travel agencies want to deal with the low volume.
Lots of information that can be found by searching the forum.
If you are looking for a deal on the accommodations. VRBO is very good. There are a lot of Infinity Bay condos on there at a much much cheaper rate than from the website. It is people who have actually bought the units.
Hope this helps
Thanks for replies! What will be the best value if we're looking for good snorkeling off the beach, decent food choices(or possibility to cook ourselves and buy grosseries, we're not looking to drive and rent a car) and nice not expansive accomodayions? I was looking on Mayan Princess and Bananarama... For the first trip I think it will be better to be at the resort/hotel with nice bar because it seems we can feel isolated at condos (I may be wrong...). Please, advise. Looking to go at end of May.
Go to Infinity Bay. Next to Mayan Princess, but a bit more isolated and is at the best part of the beach with snorkeling right from the beach. The reef is a couple of feet from the shore. Best snorkeling I have ever done. And, as I said in my last post, you get a condo cheap through www.vrbo.com.
Can you tell I am excited about my upcoming trip? LOL!
Bananarama has the Thirsty Turtle 4 steps away.
Mayan Princess has a bar and restaurant as does Infinity.
All three of the places yo are talking about are within a 5 minute walk of each other.
When I think if the accommodation on West Bay Beach the LAST thing I think is isolation.
Believe me no matter what you decide of the three you will be happy.
Try covacations.com or deltavacations.com. they have good prices with airfare and hotels packaged
The least expensive air fare is TACO with FREE baggage. If you do not mind 2 stops then American Airlines is slightly less.
Betsy @ Roatan Charter was very knowledgeable about the area and all of the resorts. We booked at Henry Morgan.

Good Luck!Edited: 6:28 pm, February 26, 2011
Look at www.cheapcaribbean.com you may find something on there depending on where you want to stay. I know they had 3 or 4 deals when we were looking to book.
