“Good service and food was pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We only ate here, did not stay. Live music, was not too crowded, and we had the lobster special with sides.

Lincoln our waiter was fantastic, the best we have had in several cities on Roatan. Actually this place was the fastest service we have had as well.

Food was good, lobster, rice and beans, vegetables, fries. Kids loved it as well. Would recommend if not crowded.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with family

As soon as we arrived at Fosters West Bay Resort, I knew Kathi and I would want to stay there again and again. It is the perfect spot on Roatan’s best beach. We were met with a smile, a drink, and no surprises. Our room exceeded our expectations, clean, spacious and definitely on the beach.
Mr. Foster is a true gentleman. He and his family and staff work hard and genuinely seem to love caring for their guests. The grounds are well maintained. Our room was always clean and the food and service were great. We felt safe and welcome.

It seemed that anything one would wish to do can be done from the beach at Fosters. We went snorkeling with Anenoma, the on site dive company. They are a first class outfit, very professional and friendly. Fishing, Water Taxis, etc. were all available at Fosters dock. And the location made the walk to West End easy.

My only regret is that the new, over water Zip Line was net yet completed before our weeklong stay was over. We have already recommended Fosters to friends and family. We will be back, soon.

Room Tip: We liked the duplex and will try for an upper unit next time.

Fosters is a great find and like many resorts was probably perfect 10 years ago.
Unfortunately the Foster family is encouraging visits by the cruise ship people and is constructing activates for them; a zip line now goes directly over the beach to the dock, a trampoline is proposed. What was once a quiet corner of the beach is getting noisier all the time.
The up side; The employees are excellent, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is managed by Leslie and serves delicious food for a very reasonable price.
Many other restaurant are in walking distance on the beach or boardwalk; no shoes, no problem. Our favorite was; Bite on the Beach, Hi Barry!
A PADI dive shop is on the premises and is well run with good boats. There are dive packages that include; breakfast, airport transfers and a free drink every day, A great deal!
The rooms are just adequate, many bathrooms are in needed of renovation and they say that is going to happen this year. Most rooms have great porches that look out over the ocean and have nice afternoon shade, it does get hot. Refrigerators in all rooms and 5 gallon water dispensers . Do not drink the island water.There are sand fleas that can be very bothersome so bring bug spray, this is an island wide problem. All in all a great spot and one our best Caribbean vacations.

Room Tip: Sky Cabana #3 and #4 are great and Deluxe cabana upper is very good.

What a great time I had while visiting Roatan. My stay at Fosters West Bay couldn't have been better. The rooftop deck of Fosters treehouse provided a beautiful setting for rise & shine morning coffees and tranquil sunset cocktails. Only steps from the ocean and beach Fosters was just the vacation I needed. The hospitality of Foster, Leslie and the crew was an unexpected bonus. I can't thank the dive team Julie, Federico,Patrick and Megan from Anemona Dive shop (located at Fosters) enough for their support and patience as I returned to the beautiful depths of the sea after a 25 year break. Thanks everyone! See you next year!

We fell for the advertising on the beach for 2 large lobster tails and a beer for 12.99. The place was packed and totally under staffed. Twice we had to walk up to grab our drinks after not receiving them from our waiter after waiting 30 minutes. After ordering the lobster meals our waiter never returned and after 1 hour the bartender came by to ask if we had ordered. The bartender eventually brought the meals and the lobster tails were tiny-4 inches long. After being told they accept American express they said our card wasn't working. We used our card at another place after that and it worked just fine. Very frustrating experience.

Down to Earth resort, even if some cabanas are in a tree!
I loved my seafront cabana#1 - with all it's features like:
small family size fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster and coffee maker -
not to forget the hot/cold water dispenser. The Bathroom is big and the towels
seemed to be quite new and soft - as in the Downy commercials!
And of course there is a hammock on the terrace too.
There is a dive center just a few steps away - which might give you
some headache early in the morning when they handle their tanks
- but honestly, one should be out there and not in bed with a hangover!
Though it might happen, as there are many opportunities all along the beach!
At the restaurant I had some of the tastiest lobsters - words can't describe!!!
Thanks Lesly and Vicky - and all the staff - I had a great time!!!

We stayed for one week in the treehouse, which was like nothing we have ever experienced before! Mr. Foster himself built the treehouse 35 years ago, which sits in a mango tree. The only issue we had with it was when the water stopped running. Daniel had it fixed within an hour, and made us feel comfortable and welcome on the island. He, along with many of the other staff, is our favorite part of staying at Foster's. They have an amazing daily happy hour, and we would spend the afternoon drinking delicious cocktails and eating great food, while chatting with Leslie and the crew. In my opinion, the beach is much better on Foster's side of the bay. It is a lot less crowded, and you can always find a beach chair to lounge on. We have already been talking about going back, and we have only been home for a month. The next time we are in Roatan, we will absolutely stay at Foster's again.
