“2nd visit & looking forward to 3rd”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Two years ago I visited Roatan and stayed at The Mariposa. I enjoyed the clean apartment, the helpful and friendly staff & the quiet location away from the bars. So, for a last minute dive trip with my sister this February I was pleased there was room but, unfortunately, not an apartment. I booked the room anyways because I enjoyed staying there, but when we arrived, Voila!, they had rearranged to accommodate us and we were able to enjoy one of the apartments! There are airconditioned rooms available, but we did not feel it was necessary for this time of year. This is a place I will book again in the future as it is a great place at a great price!

Room Tip: Apartment #3 is bright and spacious

We stayed at Mariposa for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years.

Overall we found it to be an excellent place to stay and would highly recommend.

Some of the good points that I can remember:

- Friendly and very helpful owners
- Just off the main drag, so close but not noisy
- Apartment was huge (for our standards as normally just stay in double rooms). Really enjoyed using the full kitchen !
- Free wi-fi, DVD rentals and mineral water. Also book exchange on-site
- Pick up service from the ferry stop
- Reasonable rates

Stayed December 2011, travelled as a couple

We spent 11 nights with the great owners and staff here, in a very roomy unit with 2 beds, and a functional kitchen. The fact that we had originally planned to stay a maximum of 1 week tells you something. Rooms are cleaned daily, we enjoyed the videos and books, and the personal service of the owners. Only small downside was there was lots of noise in the general neighborhood, and the beds were not the most comfy. However, the location was very central to everything in West End, we walked everywhere.

I stayed at Mariposa Lodge for a number of days in February and found it to be very nice and a friendly place to stay. Mike and Sue are so friendly and helpful. They know so much about the area and will help you in anyway they can. The rooms are always clean and there is always bottled water available. They also have a great DVD collection and book library. Also thanks to Bornie the hotel manager for her help and interesting conversations. I will stay at Mariposa Lodge again when I get back to Roatan.

A very quiet and scrupulously maintained hotel operated by the affable Mike and Sue, ex-pat Canadians from Montreal. Just steps away from the main part of laid back West End and all the restaurants as well as the water taxi to West Bay. There is a large video collection if you so desire when you get rained out, and lots of books too. The crowing chickens (esp. at daybreak) are not bothersome in the least and just add to the charm.
Bottled water is provided, and we had a fully equipped kitchen in our unit (#3).
There is lots of greenery on the property, and a cottage feel is prevalent. You can't go wrong with this place.
