“excellent in every way”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

we just came back from our vacation on Roatan, we stayed at Sueno del Mar. The hotel bring about the best balance between price and quality. Rooms are clean, air conditioning works, fridge works, ceiling fan works. Toilet flushes and all the lights were on when we switch them on. Bed sheets were clean and changed daily. Breakfasts were great, and one has to appreciate the early service if you plan on morning dive. Wi-Fi coverage is a bit short because this is a concrete building, so if you really need a solid signal, your best bet would be restaurants and bars in West End. Now, perhaps the best part about Sueno del Mar is the location and architecture of the building itself. I like West End, but it is a very busy area, with food services and shops and dive shops all in one place. Sueno is located in such way that you are secluded on your own very private beach with beautiful sand, while you are only a 3 minute walk to all the beau monde of West End. Now, the best part is HUGE balcony overlooking the sea and the beach, with hammock and coffee table and chairs. We spend about half of our time chilling out on the balcony. Diving operation at Sueno del Mar is also great, we did open water courses during our stay. Later on when we tried some other dive shops we had a chance to appreciate a good and efficient set up at Sueno, all is very close, briefing area, equipment and dock are literally just steps away. Most of the time diving was happening in really small groups. Drift dive at Texas dive site was particularly great, memorable experience. Stewart and Rodger are great and experienced instructors and we had a lot of fun and became certified (and certifiable :)). All-in-all I give Sueno del Mar solid 5 stars.

My two teenage daughters and I took the discover scuba course with Stuart. The experience was AMAZING! We arrived via cruise ship ( I booked this as a private excursion- not through cruise) and were met by a very nice driver named Miguel who drove us to Sueno del Mar. Can't say enough about our instructor Stuart! He was patient, thorough, and answered all our questions as needed. I can honestly say I learned and was able to do it ALL BECAUSE of Stuart. My girls loved it and it was an experience we shall never forget! There truly is another world under the sea! Thanks!

We just returned from Roatan and hated to leave! Sueno del Mar became my "home" away from home. This was our first time out of the states and the first time to vacation by ourselves since our honeymoon 26 years ago. We could not have picked a more perfect place! The diving with Stu was amazing. I am a fairly newbie diver and he was very patient and helpful in showing me things to become a better diver, but was able to accommodate the more experienced divers too. Lisa was awesome in helping to arrange everything from a cell phone to call home, to massages in our room, to excursions that we wanted to do while there-such as the shark dive and zip-lining with South Shore Zipline. Ray personally drove us to one of our excursions, the dolphin action swim at AKR. We enjoyed hanging out at Tita's with the other divers and the locals and met some amazing people. We had the convenience of the West End with the many places to choose from to eat such as Sundowners with amazing burgers, The Lobster Pot on the beach with a delicious surf and turf plate including Key Lime pie, El Baskas with a varied and wonderful buffett, the Argentinian Grill with yummy coconut shrimp, stuffed potatoes and grilled veggies. But we also had the quaintness of a bed and breakfast ( I am spoiled now after eating the amazing made to order breakfast every morning!) I felt totally pampered the entire week. This was an absolutely perfect vacation and I hope to return soon with the whole family! Thank you all at Sueno del Mar for the wonderful memories!

My son's discovered Sueno last year and we enjoyed an incredible week of diving and ocean front relaxing. This year, we returned with the entire family and Ray's place provided the perfect HQ for another week of underwater exploration with Stu and Roger. While Sueno is a great value, it is the convenience of having everything you need right there that makes it so perfect. Sueno del Mar has it all in a rustic, homey way from simple clean ocean front rooms, great made to order breakfasts, safety focused dive masters to the best beach bar on Roatan - Tita's Pink Seahorse. Looking forward to our third trip already!

This place gets so many revisits by people it really is like the bar. I am definitely one of them and this is my second review. Stu, Lisa, rey, tita, and good ole duke are there to greet ya for a great diving adventure. The dive boat is a barrel of monkeys and if you are a regular get ready to hash and be hashed on:) If you are an experienced diver its no nonsense diving that allows you to explore rather than having to stay within 2 feet of the divemasters tank. If you like the whole Greys anatomy diving (aka backpackers showing off their partying prowess and not diving abilities) don't go here, cause you will get a lot of kaka. Dont miss Stu's awesome night dive, we tried other younger DMs with more hair and way better jokes(see what I mean about the hash) and they couldn't hold a candle or more appropriately torch to his experience and guiding skills. My favorite sites were (texas, pablos, el aguila, and hole in the wall). Go for the dive and stay holiday package its the best deal in town.

Cons (to Be Fair)
-RAY can you please get the geezer juice (nitrox) machine running!
-book in advance cause seriously people will bring their entire families and book out the place (yes Rey I'll book earlier next time)

Pros:

We loved our week in Roatan, mostly because we stayed at Sueno Del Mar! We enjoyed being with friends and family, and the diving and snorkeling was terrific! The breakfasts every morning were delicious, made-to-order; Tita's Bar on the premises had delicious food as well!!
Very reasonably priced, lovely beach and very great service made this our go-to place in Roatan!! We'll be back!
