West Bay Village
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We stayed in Casa Martin in West Bay Village in early September. The location is outstanding and offers easy access to snorkeling, diving and water taxi. I cannot comment on other properties, but Casa Martin is well maintained and less than 100' from the water's edge. Crowds were not an issue although there were still plenty of vendors trying to sell services/souvenirs. They will take no for an answer though and it didn't really impact our vacation.

There is an issue with biting insects on the island, however this was more of a nuisance and also didn't have a significant negative impact. Wear insect repellant on your feet.

Bring plenty of small bills for tips and services (e.g. water taxi, dive tips etc.) I incorrectly assumed that we would be able to use credit cards more often.

Everything considered, this was an outstanding vacation in a great location.

Room Tip: For a large group...I'd rent a house. The hotels and resorts in the area also seemed reasonable...

We looked at many properties and were not sure what to rent. Thank goodness we decided on Casa Martin as it could not have been a better choice. This house is LITERALLY right on the beach. During our stay, people walking by would often take pictures - yes, that's how close to the beach it is. We would spend so much time on our own covered porch just watching people walk by on the beach. And the best snorkeling (the area where it's easiest to get out) is right in front of the house slightly to the left. You could pick a better location or property if you are planning a vacation to West Bay. The property has three bedrooms each with its own bathroom (two en suite). It is fairly well equipped too with almost anything you can think of. Drinking water is provided - and as much as you need. When we got there people had left liquor behind (rum, gin, etc.) so we did the same to keep the spirit going! There were also welcome gifts in the fridge like milk, beer, banana bread and local snacks. We also found a basket with left over sun block just in case you needed some extra, so again, we made sure to leave some too! There were some kids toys and float thingies there and we left a couple behind as well. So, you may find there are already some there waiting for you! We brought some spices but there were a LOT there already in the house along with things like tin foil, etc. Though, unless people keep brining them and leave some behind they would easily run out :-) The water pressure could be low at times but we were never in a rush so it wasn't a big deal. Make sure to bring bug spray and citronella candles, etc. as you WILL want to sit outside at night on the porch as it's so great and in the tropics there are lots of bug that think you taste good! The property is by far truly amazing because of the location. We don't usually go back to the same place twice but I think we are going to be back here. What a gem this place is!!

I'm writing this while we are still on island because it is such a rare find today.

West Bay Village is total pleasure! You nearly always leave you flip flops at home. location is Right on the beach and the only need to wear them is on a trip to locale shops in West End. Sheekters and sand fleas are minimum if at all. Monkey LaLa was perfect, we had a couple of minor issues but the staff was on it right away to correct the issue best as possible, while here you must keep in mind this is a island in a third world,, so things don't move very quickly at times! But the experience not to be negative in any way, only made me appreciate what we have in the states much more. As a matter of fact my wife and I are actually considering retirement here!

The diving here is second to none! We were certified at West bay Divers. Couldn't ask for a better and more friendly bunch of folks! Malcom, Kerin and Nic Thanks a bunch off putting up with us! It was a blast learning from you guys! Your patience and hard work is second to none!

Already planning our return trip!!!!!,!,

Room Tip: Leave your worries at the airport. This place will make sure you are well taken care of. Forget abou...

We stayed in one of the houses here.. I would not recommend wasting money to expensive resorts.. just rent a house. They are private and a minutevwalk away from the beach. Barefoot dreams house is very nice and clean

Best place to stay on West Bay Beach! Location is perfect and the size of the village is just right! The staff are great and very helpful! Steps from the water yet you still feel safe and somewhat secluded in the "gardens". Going back this year to take my family and staying here again! Can't wait!!

Tortuga Beach house is brand new to West Bay Village. We have recently visited it and absolutely love it! The location is awesome as it is just steps away from the best snorkelling and diving on Roatan. The house can easily accomodate 2 couples or a family as it has 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. It also has a huge deck for outside dining that has the oceanview. If you are planning a future trip to Roatan we would highly recommend checking this house out.

We stayed 10 nights in February at KD's beach house. Sam, Ruth and Brad took real good care of us and were extremely responsive. We left behind a couple of things in the house and they are making arrangements to get them to us. They don't have to do that and we really appreciate it. West Bay Village seems to us to be the best spot on West Bay. It is just steps away from the "channel" to swim out to the outer reef. There is a great area in the front of the village to hang out, catch some rays or sit in the shade of the palm trees and people watch. There is a good bit of traffic along this stretch. KD's is in the back of the village and has a nice feeling of privacy. There are security staff around the property and it always felt safe. The grounds are very well kept. KD's needs a little updating but is very comfortable and roomy for the two of us. There was a fruit/vegetable truck that come into the village a couple times a week and a truck with fresh and frozen seafood. That was very convenient and we made good use of the full size, well equiped kitchen. We have a lot of the Caribbean yet to see, but if we find ourselves back in Roatan, we will absolutely choose West Bay Village again for our lodgings.
