“A breathtaking, unforgetable experience!!!”
Reviewed February 5, 2010

Mariposa Lodge is cozy place located within minutes of everything you need to see in Roatan. The owners, Sue and Mike, are warm and friendly, also approachable and well informed about the island and everything it has to offer. Staying at Mariposa's was like having our own little apartment a short walk away from shopping, restaurants, bars and most importantly, the beach with it's numerous water activities, ie snorkeling, diving, kayaking, boating, fishing, etc... All other popular sites are easily accessible by taxi, water taxi or bus. Although, I say "little apartment" the room itself was nicer and more spacious than a 4 1/2 star resort I stayed at previously. I believe, had we stayed at a resort, we would have missed out on all the beauty, wildlife and culture that makes Roatan a place to fall in love with. I did rate "Sleep Quality" a 3 out of 5 due to the roosters that adamantly try to wake you at 3 am, though they are inescapable throughout the island. And in all fairness, Mike did try to capture and relocate the main offender :) All in all, it was an unbelievable trip and when I go back (not "if"), I will be staying at Mariposa's again. Thank you, Mike and Sue, so much for everything!

If you are looking for a simple but impeccably clean, functional place with the amenities of a small apartment this place is perfect. Having lunch on your private balcony after walking two minutes up the road from your morning dives was great. I'd especially recommend this to any traveler that is looking to stay somewhere for a little while and feel more at home than in a normal guesthouse room.

Short walk to west end, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, and hot water.

I recommend getting the apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom.

I travelled with my sister. We really wanted to find a place where we could relax, feel like home while being able to enjoy a good meal that we could cook ourselves. I really enjoyed the fact that the lodge was not straight in the village yet so close that we could do our grocery before every meal. We had a nice burner a fridge and a large living area right outside our room where I spent hours reading and chatting with new friends.

Our host were the friendliest persons in the world yet would make sure to respect our personnal space. I was also happily surprised to see how they paid attention to every little details. In fact, movies, and games were made available to us, our room was cleaned daily and they even gave us interesting information on the life on the island and interesting places to visit.

In short, I would recommend this place to my dearest friends!

I've been travelling in many places and that lodging is the best place I found so fare. The owners are REALLY nice, the location is perfect (in West End) and the rooms are confortables and beautifuls.

In our room we also had a kitchen and the cleaning lady came each day to clean the room (so it was clean).

I love that place and I recommand it to everyone!

We stayed for 10 days in the air conditioned room, it was cozy, quiet & secluded from the main lodge, with a private balcony overlooking lush vegetation (well worth the extra few bucks for this room). This room had a kitchenette equipped with the basics; toaster, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, all clean and operational. Bathroom very clean with good hot shower. There's a TV & DVD player in the room, and to our surprise, a large selection of DVD movies (almost as good as your local video store). Free Wi-Fi . Meet the owners, Sue & Mike, a very hospitable couple from Canada. If there's anything wrong in the room, they are more than happy to correct it (we had a squeaky bathroom door, we mentioned it, and it was fixed by the time we came back from our next dive). And they are quite proud of the high ratings they have received from Lonely Planet (deservedly so). There's a great little full service dive shop called Pura Vida is just a minute and a half walk away, and close to about 5 other dive shops. It's right near the center of all the bars and restauarants of the "West End", but off the beaten path enough to get a good night's sleep. The diving in West End Marine Park is great, some of the most beautiful coral to be found anywhere (and the turtles and spotted rays pop out every once in a while too!) . All in all, a very relaxing stay, at a very reasonable price.
