“The view, the people and the surroundings were something from a dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2010

This was our first time to Isla Roatan and it exceeded every expectation that our mind ever thought of. We took a cab ride out to Marble Farms and were met by Reese and Brian, who are some of the nicest people we have ever met. You will be amazed by the views! It looks like something from a postcard. The food was magnificent, the company was superb and the dock we walked out on into the little bay area was so peaceful. You could only hear the sound of birds, the quiet soothing ripple of small waves and a gentle breeze that cooled you from the tropical sun. Thank you so much to Jim, Brian, Reese all the staff that made this second honeymoon for my wife and I so enjoyable. We will back!

I had done quite a bit of searching for lodging and diving options before my and my fiance's trip to roatan, and I thank the heaven I came across Marble Hill Farms. Diving without another boat in sight, solitude on beautiful and lush grounds, awesome food, and great staff.

dive instructors were fantastic and took us both near and far for the pristine dive spots. high quality, new equipment and boats. the site occupies a hill overlooking a beautiful bay and the natural grounds and lodging (lush and natural, not like a fake landscape mega-resort) run all the way down to their beach and private dock. we did plenty of lounging in the hammocks on the dock. lodging was super spacious - 2 bedroom casita including large living room and small kitchen - all open air but protected from the rain and wind and 100% screened in from any bugs outside. A/C and ceiling fans for when you need them. we used the A/C only once even though we were there during the hot season. their gardens including their many fruit trees from which they make their jams are pristine and open to your exploration. orchids flowing off the tree trunks.

food was stellar. nice bar with fantastic mojitos. they smoke their own meat and chicken and cook everthing from scratch - you can tell the diffeerent when you have their food. i work in restaurants in nyc and i was impressed by the this spot. standard bar/grille food but with lots of local and fresh ingredients. very high quality ingredients and an attention to detail make that difference.

they're close enough to lots of other beaches with other casual resorts and beachfront bars - they even offered to take us there by boat. so you're not stuck at Marble Hill at all if you want to get out and see the surrounding area.

if you're looking to stay far away from the touristy/cruise-shipy west end of roatan then head to marble hill farms. these guys know what they're doing. they could have been a bit quicker in responding to initial reservation inquiries but i think they had had some medical emergency with a staff member so i think that's why. they have free wifi at the main house and they were often in the office when we were there, so i'm guessing that under normal circumstances they respond adequately to inquiries.

dive+lodging+food (3 meals a day)+ airport xfer package was extremely well priced. do the math and compare meal prices, dive rates, transport, etc on the island and you'll find these guys to be th best deal around.

i was there w/ my fiance, but when there i was thinking it would be a good spot for a group trip, particularly for divers. they can comfortably fit probably 12-15 in their 3 casitas and they have plenty of sites like the massive 2nd story deck on top of their dock that would be perfect for a party or a gathering. the main house (office, kitchen, etc) also have a big event space and deck that could work for weddings. anyway, they're well set up for events, although the place is pretty quiet and the grounds are really just used by the restaurant (people living and staying nearby), divers/watersports people and guest staying in their casitas from time to time. a very casual and quiet place. loved it.

Counting the moments until we return. We had one of our best vacations at Marble Hill Farms and will definitely go back! Upon arriving in Roatan we were greeted by at the airport by their friendly staff, Jacob and Kirsten. Once at the Farm we found the rooms very spacious and clean. The grounds were beautiful.

We spent a lot of time diving. Jacob was great, very patient. We wish all dive guides were like Jacob! We actually snorkeled at the dock on our last day...the life on the little reef was amazing!

We really can't say enough about the food. The chef Leitch was fabulous! His staff was awesome too! If you don't stay at Marble Hill Farms I would definitely recommend making a visit for the food.

Our one regret is that we didn't buy enough of the Boca del Fuego hot sauce! A reason to return!

Did not stay at Marble Hill Farms but had dinner at its great restaurant where the food and service were excellent. Highly recommend the scampi dish and the pizza. Has an excellent setting that perches over and looks down on the hills and Caribbean Sea. Owner and his waiter son are from Colorado, and they are doing a very good job here.

Being from Washington D.C our life is very hectic. The moment we arrived at Marble Hill Farms the stress melted away. The gardens are filled with fragrant plants, the chef at The Crows Nest prepares wonderful casual food. Our last night there he prepared the best fresh lobster meal I have ever had. I have never seen so many Hummingbirds in one place. They were actually almost tame! The high-light of our stay was our experience with Tropical Island Divers. My children (ages 14 and 17) and I took the open water diver course. We were certified in 3 days and on our final day diving we took the boat out to Morat Wall. A truly incredible experience!

Selected this destination to try a new place to Kitesail and was not disappointed. Bryan was an excellent insturctor and host. Resturant just opened and serves great food at reasonable prices. Lodge was very comfortable. Property is fun to explore and very well kept. This end of the island is very peaceful. The diving was great as well lead by dive master Jake. This is a great trip to unwind and enjoy outdoor activities.

We spent the weekend at Marble Hill Farms while on a mission trip in Ceiba and loved it. Our children ages 7, 6 and 4 enjoyed touring the beautiful paths through the gardens as well as snorkeling off the dock. Bryan was a wonderful host and cooked us an amazing breakfast. We also loved the beautiful, yet simple casita we stayed in. We can't wait to go back!
