We travel to Roatan often, but have never stayed on the East End. What a beautiful, tranquil place to be! We were greeted by Sonny and Rosina at the dock (the cabin is accessible only by boat) and we took a short ride over to the cabin. The cabin sits on the water with fantastic views of the bight. The cabins are fairly new and provide all of the amenities that you need for your stay- including drinking water, cellphone, WIFI, AC (which we never needed during the day as the weather was perfect) and most importantly, a coffee maker! Our 1 1/2 year old son loved the front porch. There is a gate that you can close off and he was able to run freely in and out of the house out onto the deck. This was particularly exciting during the strong Caribbean storms! If you are looking to party- this is not for you- if you are looking for lovely hosts, a peaceful vacation filled with boating, kayaking and swimming right off your dock- then do not hesitate to book right away. My family didn't want to leave. We loved our time at the Mermaid Cabin and we can't wait to return!
We arrived December 29 and departed January 11 2017 from Hillview cabins. We had a truly wonderful family vacation. My teen boys, husband and sister in law and husband and I loved it! Sonny and Rosina are truly wonderful, helpful, caring people who make your stay comfortable and full of adventure. Any questions you have they answer and help you plan your adventures. I've learned a lot about the island in a way I would not have if I stayed at a resort. The cabin is fully equipped and we LOVED having the barbecue as we cooked fish and other yummy food on it! We swam, kayaked and fished off dock. We kayaked to mangroves and snorkelled in the lagoon. We visited the Iguana farm and visited east end. We checked out Coxen hole, French harbour and fished with Sonny all the way to port royal (and boys caught supper!) I recommend this vacation for everyone. You have privacy but also meet so many people in this blue rock area. We have created friends with Sonny, Rosina, Barbra,Mike (acrosd the bay) and our neighbours (in flamingo cabin from California) Sheryl and bill. Cheers until our next visit at Hillview cabins in Blue Rock Roatan!

Sonny, Rosina, and ther daughter welcome you to their cabins as if you we're family. The cabin is very well equippied and beautifully situated so one can see the sun rise and the sunset. Rosina contacted activity places we asked in advance so we were ready to go. The Horse Back riding was great, the horses were Paso Fina which make a smooth ride ( good for non riders) and we cantered and galloped a lot. Well worth it !
The family took us to the grocery store to buy lots of fruit, veggies, chicken, and other staples. Sonny recommended to buy fresh lobster, the man dives for them, and the tails were the best. We got fresh shrimp and fish, both frozen, and really wonderful. We all took a trip to Punta Gorda and is was truly a non tourist experience. We watch and listened to traditional Garfuni music an dance and it was really great. My list could go on and on....if you want to be more than a tourist and better inform of the ways of the many culture of the island, this is the spot for you. Very magical.
