The Pura Vida 'resort' is a decent hotel...nothing fancy. Room is pretty small and basic but clean; with ac and a decent sized tv. The only english channel is HBO Plus. They have room safes and free wireless internet which I appreciated.
Staff are friendly enough. Was happy with the service if I needed anything.
They have a generator; which is important when staying on Roatan. Power failed for a few hours just about every other day; but it just took a sec for their generator to kick in.
Food is ok, nothing special. Pizzas are very good. Portions are large. Well except for the included breakfast, which is average but certainly acceptable. Maids do a good job each day.
I also dived with pura vida in their dive shop next door. They provide a friendly if basic service. They didn't ask to see my 'c' card; but discussed my experience with me. As an 'open water' diver on my own; they were careful to buddy me up with a DM (or trainee) who would stay at around 60' with me while other divers went deeper. They typically didn't have water on the boats which I wasn't thrilled by. You had to set up your own gear, basically do everything except carry the tanks around. But hey for 20 bucks a dive what do you want.
Overall I was quite happy with the hotel and the dive op, and would recommend it if you want to stay in West End.
