My friend and I stayed the month of January 2014 at Cocolobo in Roatan. When we first got out of the cab upon arrival, we suddenly recognized the manager, Krystal, as one of our dive masters the previous year.

Krystal and her staff do a great job taking care of the place and the guests. One of the great things about Cocolobo is the community feel you get. We made so many friends while we were there--going to dinner and hanging out with a lot of the other guests.

Cocolobo is also very well located. It's far enough off the main road through West End to give you quiet and solitude, but only takes about 5 minutes to walk to the heart of West End.

If you're going to stay in Roatan, I would definitely recommend Cocolobo!

The manager Krys is the real deal, like a young den mother and trip advisor to all the guests :) Great views, hammock on a breezy balcony, in room fridge, fresh cooked breakfast, honor bar and small pool, 5 minute walk to any type of restaurant in town, what more do you need? Maybe the extra bug spray, sunscreen and snorkel gear they keep around in case you forgot yours, nice beach towels, use of the kitchen to microwave leftovers, adorable cats that will sit in your lap if like. Rooms are very slightly worn (ocean air does that), low water pressure (you are on an island!) do not deter. WiFi only works in common area, small in room cable TV is cute but unnecessary. Go outside and play, this is Roatan.

Room Tip: We had unobstructed views of the water in the "north?" building. Looked like the "so...

We loved Cocolobo! The location was perfect- close to Half Moon Bay- but out enough to be peaceful. The staff was just wonderful! Our rooms were large and quiet. We always had hot water- which was important after a day of scuba diving! Krystal the manager was extremely helpful and recommended one the best dive groups we have ever dove with in 27 years of diving (Sundivers). We will definitely go back...

Room Tip: We were in an end room- which affords more privacy. I would get a top floor room next time, although...

Love, love LOVE Cocolobo. Perfect location: short walk to West End for dining, water taxi, shopping yet far enough for a quiet setting. The rooms are minimalist, wood floors, comfortable beds, big bathroom. AC is an up charge, we got it, can be very humid here. Going to sleep and waking to the sounds of the waves crashing on the iron shore is SO relaxing. There is a sand beach a minute walk from Cocolobo - I liked being on the iron shore with no foot traffic. Krys who runs the place is a gem, super friendly, full of great activity ideas and always happy to help you get them set up. Definitely coming back!

My GF had picked out this place late last year because it looked so laid back. She was completely right. If you want resorts and higher end resorts then you go to West Bay. If you want a small 20ish unit hotel that is extremely relaxing then this is for you. This is not for the 5 start resort traveler. There is low water pressure here, some power outages sometimes, a coral landscape beach and geckos all over the place. We were here for 10 nights and could have stayed longer. The common area is great, the pool is small but just the right size. This is a quiet, clean and friendly hotel. Krys and the staff were fantastic. Krys always went out of her way to help and book things for you. One of the best parts about this is the honor system beer fridge. Take 1, take 2 or take 5, mark them down and they are on your tab at the end. $2/beer, who can go wrong? I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second level have less mosquito and usually a breeze.

My boyfriend and I went to Roatan for President's Day weekend. We spent the first part of our trip in West Bay and then finished up in the West End. In hindsight, I wish we would have spent our whole trip staying in West Bay at Cocolobo. Krys was absolutely amazing - she went above and beyond to help us out and answer any questions we might have. She greeted us so warmly upon our arrival that we felt right at home. Breakfast in the mornings was simple but always delicious. I loved the honor system they have for drinks "after hours". It was simply a great stay and much more preferable to the bigger resorts in West Bay.
