“Kick back and relax !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2009

My fiancé and I just arrived from a fabulous trip to Roatan, Honduras. We stayed at Cocolobo for 7 nights. Every morning we would wake up to the sound of the waves and as we would stand up we would see the ocean right in front of us. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets comfortably from the hamak of our balcony. It was quite the romantic place. We felt really comfortable living at Cocolobo. There is also a continuous ocean breeze all day so that we rarely had to use the aircon at night.
The hosts Ron and Bonny are wonderful people. They made us feel like we were family. The breakfast included every morning was yummy and very practical so we could just go and enjoy our day afterwords. Ron makes the best strawberry daiquiri too!
Every day we would walk a very short distance to the West End village and then decide what we would do : diving, kayaking or just head to the beach. The snorkeling is the best we have seen. You can also go snorkeling right in front of Cocolobo. This place is in the perfect location, very close to the village but far enough to enjoy a quiet holiday. In other reviews, some people complained about the electricity shortage on the island, we had only one that lasted for about five hours on our last night. It was not a big deal. When you are traveling you have to be ready for a little misadventure, if not just stay at home! We highly recommend this place if you want to kick back, relax and have a wonderful worry free time in Roatan!

Cocolobo is the perfect place to get away and relax. The pool deck has beautiful views, and is the perfect place to read a book or catch some rays. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat away from the hustle bustle/bar/resort scene this is the place. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service was wonderful, Rory and Claire made us feel very welcome and upon request even provided snacks for us at the bar. We loved it here, cant wait to come back.

We just returned from a week long stay at Cocolobo and can't say enough great things about it. Rory and Claire are great hosts and the location and hotel itself are magnificent. It truly feels like home and with so few guests everyone gets to know each other! We loved the people that were staying there and it's clear that Rory and Claire, and the general vibe of the place, draw a great crowd. Don't miss the catered dinner on the deck overlooking the sunset when they have it! Check this place out!!! We'll certainly be back!

Nice private accomodation with good sized rooms complete with fridge & balcony. Staff were v friendly. Breakfast served every morning. Pool is tiny but nice view of the ocean. It's a 5 min walk to the little strip of West End. Accomodation isnice & safe with a security guard posted overnight. Beaware that there's no beach right there- just dead coral so not a place for sunworshippers. Try to get a room with an ocean view rather than the more private vegatation view- you don't need the privacy as all there is are passing boats during the day so you should enjoy the ocean view instead. We did have some bugs in the bathroom but hard to prevent in a small tropical island. Overall we were v happy there & found it v relaxing.

The place is great! Rory and Claire, the owners go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. All their recommendations regarding day trips and excursions were excellent. Watching the sunset by the pool became for us a daily ritual, as well as the Yoga class on the weekend. The rooms are large and clean, and a great small beach is 3 min walking away as well as all the nightlife of the West End and the diving shops.

Reading all the reviews here, they completely cover all the wonderful things about Cocolobo. Great location? check Easy access to West End? Check .Good rooms? Check Service and staff? Check, and so the list goes on ;-))

This was the second time we've been to Cocolobo - and we've stayed at other places - but this was easily the best by miles for the sheer beauty and calm of the surroundings, the awesome sunsets with gin-and-tonic, and the general happy buzz about the place.

Last time we were here we had our little girl, and this time we were here we had a new addition in the form or our little boy, so being somewhere we felt comfortable as a family was paramount. Roatan doesn't necessarily put itself out there as a family destination, but we quite liked that about it - it means you can do your thing, and everyone is happy to help.

That goes without saying for Cocolobo, the staff in the form of the endearing and charming managers Rory and Claire, plus Heidi the cook, Jose the nightwatchman, and Oliviia the cleaner and kitchen help were excellent and always helpful to us as a family. We felt very looked after and happy and you can't ask better than that really for a holiday. In fact it was a bit like visiting another family much of the time!

It also goes without saying that I would heartily recommend Cocolobo. Part of me doesn't want the secret to get out, but looking at all the other reviews it's probably too late for that - so I'll throw my hat into the ring with this one. Get yourself to Cocolobo - you will not regret!

I have just returned from a great stay at Cocolobo, hosted by the wonderful Claire and Rory. The hotel is in a perfect location. Quiet enough to chill, read and sleep well but around the corner from the main strip at West End - so easy access to food, shops,banks etc. The view from all the large and comfortable rooms is stunning. Each room has a wall of glass doors which overlook the ocean and balconies with hammocks if you really want to relax and day dream.

They provide a great healthy breakfast with a different hot plate every morning (not so healthy but rather yummy)!

Claire and Rory are always around for advice, chats and a drink but also know when to leave you alone to relax and do your thing.

This place seems to attract some great guests too and we really enjoyed hanging out with some of them.

From here you can do some amazing snorkelling, hire a sailing boat, dive, eat really well at the local restaurants, dip into the pool whilst overlooking the ocean and generally escape the hectic pace of normal city life!

Thanks CocoLobo for a wonderful stay
