My first ever visit to Roatan started off a little rocky. I flew from Hilo to Honolulu to Los Angeles to Miami to San Pedro Sula to Roatan (yeah, I know...). TACA (Take A Chance Airlines) emailed me in Los Angeles to advise that my afternoon flight from San Pedro Sula to Roatan the next day was canceled. They moved me to the morning flight, but my Miami flight didn't get in in time. I emailed back that I could stay overnight in San Pedro Sula and take the morning flight the next day, and they agreed. TACA then emailed me on landing in Miami that the morning flight the next day was now canceled and they put me on the afternoon flight. I was traveling for business and would have lost a whole day. I found SOSA Aerolineas and a travel agent on Utila who booked a flight on the original day, and I also booked a backup hotel room in San Pedro Sula, as well as looking into the ferry from La Ceiba to Roatan just in case. Throughout, the front office staff at infinity Bay was very helpful, changing my rental car arrangements and my room reservations as needed and on the fly, which was great.
And thank you iPhone for allowing me to do this from the airport in Miami and not have a meltdown!
Flew into San Pedro Sula from Miami with endless views of huge amounts of flooding. It seemed the entire valley floor surrounding the airport was underwater. It became clear why my travel plans were changed.
Ended up catching the SOSA flight and landed safely at about 4 pm, 3 hours before my original TACAs flight, so it worked out better.
Ok, Infinity Bay. First impression was questionable as you pull into the parking lot which sits on the road, and you're confronted with construction sights and sounds. There was not a lot of signage directing us to the working part of the resort. The office is in a converted studio unit. You walk literally underneath the construction with debris falling on the tin sheet over your head. Front office staff were very welcoming and friendly. My room was a studio, which was very well appointed and comfortable. Had a little fridge and wet bar and a nice bathroom. No view to speak of and no patio. For a single traveler, and with an entire island to explore I thought it was perfect. It didn't have any internet, though, which my travel agent said it would. I knew it wouldn't have WiFi, but it turns out no connection at all and i had a lot of work to do while there, so I moved to a one-bedroom. Again, beautifully appointed, this room was on the ground floor with a great patio, a large bedroom with plenty of storage and closet space, a huge bathroom, and a full kitchen complete with granite countertops and a breakfast bar with stools. There was a flat panel tv with satellite, and it was all very attractive and comfortable.
The resort is very much a work in progress, and it felt like they were trying to offer resort-style amenities at a condo property. There was no restaurant (along with the lobby, it will come in Phase II), but they did offer food at the bar (and free WiFi), although the quality of the food was just average. And the kitchen is in the basement adjacent to the bar/pool area. I'm sure it's new and beautiful, but it didn't fill me with confidence to watch food come up the stairs from the basement past the construction and exposed lumber with the food only partially or not covered. Service at the bar and throughout the property was excellent, though. Everyone greeted us by name if they could and were very friendly. Service could be slow, but I'm from Hawaii so slow service is a part of life.
Location was stunning. Crescent shaped white sand beach, dock with a water taxi service that was convenient and inexpensive, and a lot of staff around at all times to take care of you. There were not that many people there at the time, and we felt really special. Also, the bar seems to be a local hangout of sorts and we met all kinds of people who knew a lot about Roatan.
Did visit other properties while there and came away feeling like Infinity Bay was my fave. After a day of exploring, it was comforting to return to my new "home". It is unassuming, uncrowded, and unpretentious. Rooms are large and beautiful. Things will change once Phase II is complete as that will double the size of the property, but also add some amenities that are missing.
