My girlfriend and I needed to get out of the cold in NY for a while and we were both looking for a quite, relaxing few days. We are both Fitness instructors (me Yoga, her Pilates) so we were also interested in someplace that had activities but wasn't a crazy spring break. We had read about Roatan but honestly did not know much about it.
So, after talking with friends and reading on Tripadvisor and other places we decided to try Villas del Playa - and we are so glad we did.
We arrived in Roatan and Krystal was right there to pick us up (Krystal oversees the property) - she is amazing, tons of positive energy and just beautiful person to be around. The trip from the airport to Villas Del Playa was a quick trip, it seemed to go by even quicker as we were so excited to be there.
We got to the Villas and were impressed with how modern, clean and updated they were. We stayed in a the mid-level unit and it was beautiful l (there are 6 units in total, two on each floor) however it was more space than we needed as it was just us two girls. We quickly changed into our bikini's and went down to the pool (that is right on the beach). Krystal came to check on us periodically, but there was nothing more that we needed, warm sun, a beautiful beach and a view that seemed to go on forever.
After laying out the rest of the day we decided to explore some local restaurants - Krystal knew everyplace in the area and steered us to an amazing local restaurant right on the beach. The food was great and by the end of dinner we were sitting out on the beach having a margarita - it does not get better (except our amazing moonlight swim after dinner)
The following day we slept in and decided to go scuba diving. There is a Scuba diving place a short walk up the beach that Krystal knew. If you like to dive you have to go to Roatan, it was just beautiful.
The remainder of our vacation consisted of laying out by the pool, on the beach and taking short swims in the bath-like warm, deep blue water. Krystal was always checking in on us but never intrusive, did I mention how amazing she is?
The worst part of the trip was having to leave - we experienced pure paradise at Villas del Playa and we can't wait to go back
