My boyfriend and I stayed at Mayoka Lodge for 8 nights and all of our expectations were surpassed. The house is airy, beautifully designed and exceptionally appointed. The grounds and pool area are verdant and picturesque, especially the view of the ocean through the tree tops, over the edge of the infinity pool. Whether you stay in one of the private cabins or the suite (we were fortunate to try both), the rooms are tranquil and tastefully done. The best part of our stay was the proprietors, John & Barbara, who took the experience from lovely to fantastic. Their personalized attention to our stay was unparalleled and made us feel like we were staying with friends; that is if our friends owned a luxury home in a tropical paradise and only materialized to see that we were content at all times. Every recommendation they made for us was spot on and nothing was missed in the logistics of our getting around the island- when we ever wanted to leave! The chef is amazing and it is a treat to be able to order a restaurant quality gourmet meal and have a dinner by candlelight right on the patio. I would highly recommend Mayoka Lodge. Not only would we stay there again, it is the only place we will ever stay in Roatan.

Room Tip: The Cycad cabin is very quiet...

Thank you Emily for this beautiful review!
The only thing that we can say is: when are you guys coming back?!!

Thank you again for the beach cover up that you left as a present, which I have been wearing every day..

It was really fantastic to get to know you both and now that you became an experience diver, you have no excuse to wait too long for your return.

The treetop sunset deck is finished and the other night we had our firsts guests enjoying a lovely private dinner at the light of a beautiful full moon and our newly installed tiki torches!
Also we just got two additional wireless speakers which amazingly work on the sunset deck, playing your favorite radio station!

John and Barbara took us in during Semena Santa when we arrived a day earlier than planned and our condo wasn't available yet. We were put in a small but beautiful room overlooking the ocean. It was tight with the three of us but was only for one night. We were made to feel very welcome especially by the young lady at the bar/breakfast. She could not have been kinder. After a hardy breakfast of pancakes, sausage, fruit and banana milkshake, husband and son went diving and I enjoyed the new sun deck. Stunning view! Mayoka allowed us to store our luggage until we could move early afternoon. Only issue we had was dining tables right outside our window (beautiful view) stayed way past restaurant's closing time and kept us awake. The lodge is intimate and gorgeously decorated, immaculate and comfortable.

Thank you so much for your review.
We were so happy to be able to accommodate you at the last minute, during Easter week!
So we had to squeeze the three of you into our last available room that normally accommodate maximum two people.

We apologize for the late dinner guests, but as always, it get difficult for people to leave Mayoka Lodge!
The table has been since re positioned to our brand new sunset deck, for the private candle light dining.

We hope you can visit us again and finally have more time to try the gourmet dinners at our Frangipani restaurant

We stayed one night and had a great experience. The setting is awesome, the rooms are nice, and the staff and proprietors are extremely friendly. I would most definitely stay here again.
They serve a very nice breakfast daily and have a beautiful view of the ocean and a nice quiet beach. The beach on the other side of the island is what I consider to be over crowded

Room Tip: If you are traveling with kids the rooms might be small

Thanks for taking the time to review us even if you could stay only one night.
We are so glad that we could accommodate your last minute booking during Easter Week and make an exception for your family on our normal policy of maximum capacity of two people per room and 11.00am check out.
Even though we appreciate your tip about the room been small, if travelling if kids, we do not want to confuse the future guests, because the minimum age for staying at Mayoka is normally 18 years and above, to maintain an adult environment, for the privacy and tranquility of all our guests.

Should you come back and spend more time with us at Mayoka, don't miss the fabulous dining with our Chef Crystelle!

There is not enough space to talk about all the wonderful aspects of this place. No negatives, five-star quality all around. John and Barbara are so charming and welcoming. We felt as if we were visiting friends that we hadn't seen in several years in their private Caribbean villa. Always attentive, informative and happy to chat, they also have the grace and professionalism to recognize when you just want to sit by yourself and read a book. My wife and I stayed for a week in the romantic Royal suite (the only room in the main lodge, on the second floor) with a king canopy bed, from which you look through a wall-sized picture window high over the crystalline infinity pool to the reef and ocean beyond. The double soaking tub was perfect for relaxing and warming up after scuba-diving. Steps to the beach, the reef is a short, 1/4 mile swim through placid water, but you can kayak half-way and tie up to a buoy. Crystal-clear, shallow, very healthy reef, perfect for photos. Gorgeous sunset views from the pier on the beach and also from the new, tree-top deck they were installing while we were there. We were so impressed with Crystelle's cuisine (she's Cordon Bleu-trained) that we ate in most nights and just told her to surprise us. Even breakfast was fresh and new (lime-zest in pancakes? Oh, yes!). We invited newly-made, next-door friends to dinner our last evening and felt as if we were giving a small catered dinner in our own home. Elvin, the prep chef and general factotum, and his wife Gabby were ever-helpful and friendly (try the island food at their own restaurant out at the road!). John's recommendation for Tranquilseas next door for scuba was spot-on (see my review on their site). And even on the rare cloudy day, we had our pick downstairs of the large reading library, DVD collection in the home theater and shooting a few games of pool. John and Barbara, thanks so much for making our much needed R&R week exceed all our expectations. We hope to come back soon.

Room Tip: The Royal suite is the ultimate romantic choice. Other rooms are not quite as grand, but looked very...

At Mayoka Lodge, what really makes the magic work, is the blessing of having so many wonderful guests such as yourselves.
We have been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by visitors you arrived as guests and left and friends.
In the end, this is what the Mayoka Lodge experience is all about!...

When you come back, our Chef Crystelle has more surprises for you and you HAVE TO SEE the recently completed sunset deck, which is now our guests favorite spot to relax and enjoy the dolphins in the morning and the spectacular Roatan sunsets ..still looking for the green flash!

Thank you so much for the pictures that you posted on TripAdvisor... we LOVE guests photos!

Don't wait too long to come back, the weather is simply gorgeous.

Stay warm

My son and I stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights while in Roatan our annual father/son diving trip. On paper, the Mayoka Lodge is a beautiful boutique hotel with wonderful rooms and terrific amenities. However, the property is much more than that,......There are many resorts that are well appointed with great facilites. However, what makes the Mayoka Lodge so special are its managers---John and Barbara. They are the perfect hosts....attending to all of your needs. They have created a family atmosphere that allows for you to interact with your fellow guests and feel at home in the lodge. The Lodge's chef Cristelle (sp?) is terrific; you should have her cook you at least one meal while you are there. All and all, I can't say enough good things about our experience at the Lodge. This is the best place to stay at Roatan and it is because John and Barbara create such a welcoming environment.

Thank you for your kind words.. you and your son, once again, reminds us why we love so much Mayoka!
Seeing our guests so relaxed and comfortable here, simply warms our hearts.
We finally named the Restaurant and the sunset deck is almost done.
Last night we had our fist sunset from the spectacular tree top view and it was quite special.
Today we started the building of the private massage deck, nestled in the palm trees, just off the main ocean front deck.
Will post some pictures as soon as it is finished.
Looking forward to your next visit, hoping to meet also your wife!

I found myself looking for a hotel at the very last minute having been let down by a friend! The night before i was due to fly to Roatan, I was sat in my hotel in Austin, Texas and stumbled across the Mayoka Lodge. I called to book, and spoke to John the owner, he confirmed there was a room available and i booked right away!

I arrived at the lodge, and was greeted by John and his wife Barbara. The lodge is INCREDIBLE! Incredible outlook, fantastic pool, clean and perfect equipped rooms and amazingly friendly staff. My arrival cocktail put me in the holiday mood, and as i was travelling alone, John and Barbara invited me out with some other guests and friends for dinner that night.

I cannot fault this boutique hotel, everything about it was perfect. John and Barbara are amazing hosts, and I cannot wait to come back and next time I will be taking my girlfriend!!

THANKYOU FOR AN AMAZING WEEKEND!!

Read all the reviews and you will see the long list of superlatives---from
the managers' attentiveness, to the chef's food, to the support staffs'
responsiveness, to the quiet location with good snorkeling and kayaking.
as well as the opportunity for varied excursions. If you want that perfect mix of being able to be active when you want and relax when you want it is all here.
There are also the private tennis court surrounded by a 10 foot high fence covered with flowering vines, the very nearby dolpin training center where dolpins are viewable from kayaks, and a two bars with restaurants within 500 feet with live music and dancing. On top of all
that Barbara will speak Italian if you wish and John will burn a CD with
a movie if you can't find the one you want in their extensive library.
My wife and I travel frequently but do not usually return to the same place---we plan on coming back here.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Mayoka! I think you hit the "nail on the head" when you describe us relaxing yet close to the action of choice! Now, I have to learn to speak Italian! Look forward to your return--the tennis court misses you! BTW, Barbara and I finally went out to play. Lets just say, a few balls disappeared in the now famous flowering vines! Thanks again for choosing Mayoka!
