The hotel manager (Ray Lopez) is undoubtedly one of the nicest people you can meet as everyone that has gone there will confirm. I stayed at one of his other accommodations in West End Bay, seriously good rates, an open planned bedsit type accommodation in a two storey wooden built building, rustic and perfect for a lone traveller as I was, it had everything I needed, shower/wc, kitchenette with electric hob, not that I used it as the local cuisine was just delish......Mmmm, sheets/towels regularly changed, room cleaned. Ray also offers a "laundry wash" facility as do other places in town at reasonable rates that offer a good service I thought. This place is so cool for so many different reasons, you've got great diving/snorkeling that Ray offers at seriously good prices plus other dive operators in town, a very relaxed town ambience from shop keepers to restaurants and beach bars, gotta go to "Sundowners bar" on the beach where they have "Happy hour" most days from 5pm to 7pm if I remember correctly..!! ask Sony at the bar for a "slap n tickle" you wont be disappointed, other bars also have the happy hours at staggered times,one or two having live bands which do crank it up giving that "holiday grooving feeling".
There's a Catamaran (38ish ft) moored up in Half Moon Bay West End that goes daily I believe to Utila the neighbouring Island for $100 ish return, takes several passengers taking a few hours each way and is meant to be pretty cool.
People from other parts of the island call West End Bay, the "Hippy" part of the island, it's purely because it's sooooo chilled out and laid back. You can also go along the coast to "West Bay" approx 3 miles, a really nice walk or water taxi ride (a whole $3). totally different place in the sense that it's got a couple of large complex's that provide the holiday package if you like that sort of thing. Having done extensive travelling across South/Central America and the Carribean, I highly recommend this location and of course all of Ray Lopez's services for all, whether single, a couple, retired, group of guys/girls, you will NOT be disappointed. One NOT to be missed for sure, Enjoy.

Room Tip: Ray Lopez will sort rooms, you'll be fine

I really enjoyed staying here. The dive shop was right next door so you could go back to your room and relax between dives. Everyone was so friendly and the hotel was right on the beach with amazing views.

Ray you and your staff rock! Sueno has it all for divers, great location close to all the dive sites and the action in the West End! Tita's Pink Seahorse can satisfy your thirst and appetite and it's right on Sueno's beach!

April 24th-30th,2011 :

Roatan is a true divers Paradise and Sueno Del Mar has the full package ! An incredible dive shop full of all the necessities every accessory possible for YOUR dive trip with an incredibly personable team ! It's like you have your own personal dive master because there was never more that two other diver diving with us at one time, while on our adventures underwater !

The rooms were large and extremely clean, with maid service every day ( fresh towels, clean sheets, a/c, refridge, free wi/fi, hammock on the balcony, free breakfast every day) !!!

I want to thank Ray (the owner for 20+ years) for his hospitality and the whole crew in the dive shop and boat ! This was a vacation I will always treasure, ...until I return and do it again !!!

Room Tip: *All rooms are Ocean Front ! ...AAAA++++

I will echo the other reviews. Staying at Sueno Del Mar makes your Roatan vacation so easy and convenient. You are literally steps from the dive shop, the dock and Tita's restaurant/bar (the burgers and Monkey La Las are as good as everyone says). At night, when you're ready to venture into town (after happy hour/sunset/volleyball-watching at Tita's), it's a few minutes walk to everything West End has to offer. But it's far enough away from the action that it's quiet when it's time to go to sleep. Ray, Tita and Stephanie will help you with any questions on where to eat, what night karaoke is, how to get around, etc.

Rooms are simple, spacious and clean, with comfortable beds, and the views can't be beat. I'm not much of a breakfast person, but everyone seemed to really enjoy Ray's eggs and pancakes. For boring eaters like me, he always had cereal and yogurt.

If you're looking for luxury and an infinity pool, try West Bay (and you may or may not find those things there) or one of the newer resorts. For a relaxing dive vacation where everything is just steps away, look no further than Sueno del Mar, and enjoy!

I went down to Roatan for one week, not really knowing entirely what to expect. I heard Roatan was great for diving and cheap to get certified.

I checked accommodation reviews here on Trip Advisor and felt that Sueno seemed like the best fit. And I was not disappointed in the least.

It's more like a Bed and Breakfast than a hotel. There are only eight rooms and Ray the owner serves you breakfast in his place/unit every morning. Each room has spectacular views of the ocean and I mean spectacular.

The diving can not be any more convenient as Sueno as they have their own dive shop.

There's a beach volleyball court and Tita's bar right on the beach. Great for afternoon and sunset beverages and Tita can prepare meals too. The dive shop does three dives a day and you can chill out at Tita's between dives if you so wish.

Although Sueno is only a minute or two from the main strip in the West End, it has an isolated feel. And it's only one of two places in the West End with beach front property.

The staff is very good and I felt that I made friends with many of them by weeks end.

There is nothing bad I could say about Sueno.

The only negative about the trip to Roatan is the sand flies. So bring some spray or buy the Coconut Spray when you get there.

All in all the diving was great, the convenience could not have possibly been better, the room was great, view was great, the people and feel of the place. I loved it.
