Just completed a week long dive trip in Roatan, and stayed at Cocolobo. I'm happy I did. Everything associated with the stay was smooth and easy, starting with the initial correspondence to make a reservation. I received a quick response and was booked. When I realized I had given the wrong dates, I sent another message: no worries, the reservation was adjusted. Deposit easily charged to my Visa. Reservation for a driver to pick me up at the airport was made.
Upon arrival at the airport, I was greeted by the driver and quickly whisked away to Cocolobo. Martin (the driver) was very friendly and helpful--offering suggestions of things to do while on the island, where to dive, where to eat, etc.
When I got to Cocolobo, I was greeted by Ron who offered a cold beverage and gave me the "lay of the land". My luggage was taken up to my room for me. The room was spacious, clean, and well-equipped: mini-fridge stocked with beer, sodas, and a full pitcher of water; shelves for clothing, closet with hangers, bathroom with plenty of towels/washcloths, soap; room with bed, two night stands with two lamps, overhead light with ceiling fan, two wicker chairs and small table, and desk with chair. Also a TV and air conditioner--both with remote controls. The far end of the room had two big sliding glass doors, leading out to the balcony with a hammock. Great view to the ocean. With the windows open, I could hear the waves at night. Ahhhhh.....I spent many hours relaxing in the hammock with a good book.
Each morning, breakfast is served in the main lodge area, near the beautiful infinity pool that looks out to the ocean. Basic lineup of cereal, granola, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, and fruit salad each morning and then a special "hot plate" that changed each day (some type of egg dish usually: great banana pancakes on the last day of my stay!)
The main lodge has wi-fi signal so staying in touch at home via facetime was easy. Others used skype. I tried to stay away from my email, facebook, etc. while there, but I did send a few messages from my ipad.
Each night at sunset, Ron and Bonnie host a happy hour in the lodge area. I'm not a drinker, so I didn't partake, but I could tell that the folks who did attend enjoyed it.
I was really pleased with every aspect of my stay at Cocolobo and highly recommend it. It's a quick five minute walk to the main street in West End--you can easily walk from Cocolobo to the far end of West end in a leisurely 15 minute stroll (possibly less than that). Thanks to Ron and Bonnie for a terrific stay!
