If you are a big resort sort of person, stop reading now and look at West Bay. If like my wife and I, you prefer a more laid back, authentic experience in a beautiful setting that still gives you access to the local island culture, then you've found your place. We rented a cottage for a week to do some diving at Scuba Roatan (check my review) and it was the perfect combination. Cocolobo is a 3 minute walk from the dive shop and just a little longer of a walk to the main strip where you will find your local restaurants, bars, and little shops. There was no need for a car except for the one day that we decided to explore the island. But back to Cocolobo... the owners were fantastic and extremely helpful with anything we needed, the bar was usually on a self-serve honor system, and the other guests were the sort of cool, international crowd that could be trusted to use such a system. Breakfast by the pool was delicious every single day and guests could often be found mingling and sharing stories around the bar / pool at the end of the day. My wife and I don't visit too many places twice, but I am already looking forward to going back to Roatan and Cocolobo.
