Stayed here 3/3/14-3/10/14 with a groupon, the villa was more than expected, with two bedrooms, the lower bedroom in the two villas we stayed in had two twin beds, and the master was upstairs with a queen bed. I was worried staying here about the water and needing to buy filtered water. To my pleasant surprise we had a poland spring like bubbler in both villas where we could fill our nalgene bottles and ice containers for the beach! We stayed the first three nights in villa #27, then moved to villa #24. Some reviews did not like villa #24 because it is right near the bar, we had no problem or issues with noise. There is security there that is vigilant on who is entering the property and I felt very safe there. The villas were clean and had a nice big fridge for our leftovers which we could re-heat with the over or microwave in the room. If you are debating between a beach front or beach side villa really they are the exact same layout except the beach front villas are located in front of the beach side villas (four villas in total) and are closer to the beach. We did have a better view of the sunset from our porch in the beachfront villa #24. I would recommend bringing bugspray related to the mosquitos. The food was delicious, every morning with our groupon breakfast was included, it changed daily, but always was super fresh with fruit, fresh squeezed fruit juice, and french toast, or a burrito. The lunches and dinners we got were fresh and reasonably priced. I have had some of the best chicken I've ever had from Roatan! The coffee at the resort is free with breakfast and delicious! The Vintage Pearl restaurant is so good with a three course meal, I even got a salad takeout the next night, so fresh and fantastic homemade dressing!
