We had a fantastic time staying at Beachcombers (Hobbies Hideaway). John and Sue were great hosts, very friendly and catered to all our needs. They have an amazing location in Sandy Bay, overlooking the beach with plenty of activities to keep you active. Free kayaking, snorkling gear etc and a great reef which you can swim to from the pier directly out from the apartment.
The restuarant at Beachcombers (Sunshine Cafe) is also fantastic and serves very tasty and large Tex Mex meals at very affordable prices, and seafood dishes can be made to order .. The 3 lobster tales were great. Kenny and Kathy whom run the resturant are very friendly and happy to make anything you desire.
Its a short taxi to West end and West bay, and we would definately recomend hiring a car for the day to visit the other end of the island which is less developed.
I definately recomending staying with John and Sue at Beachcombers if your looking for a more personal and private vaccation with your own private beach rather than the commercial Hotels found in West Bay ... or even dropping into Sunshine Cafe for a very tasy meal.
- 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
