“treehouse in a parking lot?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We thought that finishing our 3 1/2 weeks on Roatan in a treehouse on the beach would be cool. When we saw it we changed our minds. Foster's is indeed located on a beautiful beach with crystal clear water, the treehouse is not. The treehouse is on a traffic circle in the parking lot. Add to this the construction that was going on, we decided to cancel. Even though we cancelled 3 weeks before our stay we did not get all of our deposit back.

Loved the rustic flavor of the cabins, but on Tuesday, wednesday & Thursday they sell out to profit from Cruisers. We had no pre reserved chairs or space & got NO respect from the passengers who just took over the beach like it was a public beach. We had to go to another resort to get chairs or space.

Foster's is a jewel if you are looking for the perfect location on West Bay Beach!

If you are looking for a fancy schmancy resort this is not for you. Some things like furniture and fixtures are a bit dated, but boy, the location sure makes up for this big time.

We stayed in one of the cabanas directly on the beach. A million-dollar view right from you deck! Falling asleep with the sound of gentle waves is priceless. Because Foster's is at the east end of West Bay Beach, it's not crowded at all, in fact we even had the beach to ourselves sometimes.

Occasionally cruise ship travelers come to Foster's for a beach chair and lunch. They arrive by 10:00 am ish and a gone by 3 pm ish or earlier.

Ground keepers are up by the crack of dawn to keep the beach and property clean. Rooms are cleaned every day - no complains. Mr. Foster gives you a warm welcome and he is very approachable with any issues or just to chat.

The restaurant is very good as well. The hot chicken wings are the best I have ever had. They have great specials on every day of the week. Very reasonably priced and tasty. Pay in Lempira at the restaurant you get a bit better deal. The bill shows both US$ and Lempira amounts.

Mattresses and pillows are top-notch. We slept very well. Warm water takes a while to get to your bathroom, since it is coming from a tank in the back of the property. But it is sun heated and plenty full.

The property is full of trees, very green and a natural, park like setting. Plenty of birds and bats (at night) around.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the treehouse at Fosters from feb 22-march 2. The treehouse, while a bit overpriced ($50ish is a lot for backpackers on a budget), is really awesome. The treehouse sways with the wind, but is very sturdy. We were there for a couple of stormy days when the wind really picked up. There is a deck up top with an amazing view, and a lower deck in the mango tree branches with a hammock for relaxing. The shower is on the porch, so be prepared to hang a couple towels to create some privacy. A big plus is the purified water cooler in the room. There is a coffee maker and a small fridge/freezer as well. If the treehouse only had a small 1or 2 burner electric hot plate it would have been perfect, as dinner in west bay (priced in dollars, more for cruise shippers & resorters than backpackers) is a bit pricy for Central America.

We arrived at this place because it was the only one that had room for us, If I were to know I would have chosen some other place. The owners are some kind of uninterested for the people that stay at there hotel, very serious and not offering solutions for the people that arrive at there hotel. We were moved from one room to another in our two night stay because of availability but I couldn't find this hotel in any booking site in order to get to know it before arriving to the islands. The rooms have all the accommodations, but the first night we were in a room with no air conditioning, It was brooken and it was a awful night with the heat of the shore, make sure that your AC works when arriving at Foster's. They didn't show us around the hotel in order to get to know the bathrooms, the showers o local attractions, that was missing and necessary. One sunday afternoon a "DJ" was trying to mix some music but he keept playing the same songs over and over all afternoon long.

We had some distorted views on TripAdvisor about staying at the Fosters West Bay cabana #1 turns out the women that sent the reviews just wanted a free upgrade. I have a bad back and had brought extra foam to put on our bed , been here 10 days and it’s still in the suitcase. If you are not form the 5th Ave.district in NYC and want first class service in a simple but quite atmosphere at the best price Fosters is for you. We have traveled all over the Latin American countries and we feel very safe and well taken care of here Mr. Foster will make sure you are doing well himself by stopping by to see if everything is fine. Stay at west Bay on Roatan you will love it.
