John and Barbara Morris, the managers of Mayoka, never rest on their laurels at this magical place. I arrived at Mayoka in early May with three other people, and we were immediately greeted like family by the Morrises. Their warmth is not some canned affectation learned at hotel skill...it is totally genuine. They want you to love their place, and make you feel totally at home. Beverages are on the honor system that you can get any time in the lovely kitchen. Breakfasts, which are included, are delicious...starting out with fresh mango, pineapple, etc. at your convenience.You can sit, eat, read at any number of tables overlooking what has to be one of the most addictive views I've ever seen. Downstairs in the villa are a home movie theater, billiard room, and British style pub bar....rarely used. Upstairs, you look out over an inviting infinity pool, and a stretch of palm trees to their own beach. Just a little further out, a short swim away, is the second largest barrier reef in the world...still healthy and inviting you to explore several times if you like to snorkel. There are also free kayaks, and a tennis court out front. If you just want to kick back, it's hard to imagine a better spot than the already mentioned infinity pool. John and Barbara love Roatan, and know it well.They shared what they do on Sundays at West Bay Beach with our group. Need a cab? John will find you the cheapest and most reliable. Want to go on an excursion? The Morrise know the hits and misses. Just want to talk? They're up for it any time they have time. Want world class dinners? While we were there, Daniel Doc O'Connor, a renowned businessman and chef from mainland Honduras, came in to train staff. The guests were the lucky guinea pigs. Obviously, that won't happen every week, and some things will change at Mayoka over the years. As long as John and Barbara are there, Mayoka will retain its high standards as a uniquely wonderful haven.
