Very pleased with our stay here. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. It was the perfect size for my husband and I, but we could also for our two kids when we return. John and Sue were great hosts. Ron took my husband deep sea fishing, and also took both of us zip lining.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Hobbies Hideaway. John met us at the airport and brought us grocery shopping on our way to the apartment.

During our two week stay, we took...

I could not have found a better place for our vacation. John and Sue felt like old friends. My husband enjoyed swimming from the dock to the reef for snorkeling. Also went on the tour in the boat with Ronald for more amazing snorkeling. Do take the Island tour with John if you have the chance.

We spent 3-weeks in April at Hobbies Hideway. The weather was absolutely perfect and with the water temperature at 83-degrees, snorkeling and diving was about as good as it gets. The reef is roughly 200-yards from the end of the pier and an easy kick to get there. Easily one of the best reefs we have snorkeled. There is a...

Mark, Thanks for the review. So many of our guests that stay with us that say we indeed have a little slice of paradise.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Sandy Bay,just off the main road on a secluded beachfront area that is quiet and tranquil. The white sand beach parallels the reef and inside the Roatan Marine preserve . Here is a pristine reef system with a abundance of tropical fish and corals within swimming distance from your accommodations Hobbies Hideaway offers affordable prices and a excellent location. Close to West End for the night life,bars and restaurants yet far enough away not to hear the bands at night. Coxen Hole has the new supermarkets and sovenier shops. Best prices on the island just a taxi ride away. $2.00 a person ... more   less
