I stayed here for a week, following a week of a rather horrible experience at Casa del Sol nearby.
First of all, Posada Arco Iris has (at least) two blocks. One is at the front, facing the sea, and other at the back with no seaviews. Make sure you know which one you are booking.
I had a room in the front building, not the room facing directly onto the beach but still with a good seaview from the balcony (with hammock). Decent sized room (double bed and a single bed), nicely decorated, and with a fridge which I would suggest is essential if you're staying in a place like Roatan. This is by no means a boutique experience or a luxury hotel. (Those hotels in the West End are found slightly further away from the bars, restaurants and shops...oh, and the "beach" - those hotels are right on the sea, but there are no beaches there.)
It was a little noisy at night, because of the generator close by. But nothing compared to the insane dogs barking all night at Casa del Sol.
Wifi is available, but it did not seem to reach some rooms, as I often saw other guests sitting outside the "Office" to get signal. Luckily I did not have this problem.
If I were to ever go back to Roatan, I think I might try staying in West Bay, where there are big hotels on the beach (the beach in West Bay is more along the lines of what you would expect to see when staying on a Caribbean island). I stayed in West End because that was where all the bars and restaurants were (and the diving). Having stayed there, however, I now also know that there are water taxis all day long between West End and West Bay (USD1.50, 10mins).
