We were booked for five nights at the West Bay Lodge. Upon Arrival, we were upgraded for free to another suite- just cuz it was available!! We were off to a good start! The room was great, with a small kitchenette to do our cooking- what a moneysaver... he beach is about 5 minutes away, walking, through another hotel that offers scuba diving, so the location is great. The beds were firm and the pillows were not your typical Honduras pillows- they were down!! The pool was fun to relax in, the other guests are far enough away that you feel like you have the place to yourself! Celeste and Milos were fantastic hosts, and Jacob event lent me his Ipod charger to charge my phone! We went on a trip across Honduras, staying at 6 different hotels, and this one was by far the best!

Room Tip: try to get a private bungalow- we had #6 perfect!

Celeste and Milos are fabulous hosts at this small lodge just a 3 minute walk away from gorgeous West Bay Beach. On cruise ship days, it's nice to have a quieter place to escape to away from the crowds. They have a lovely pool, great rum punch, beautiful gardens, and quiet rooms, along with a fun little restaurant (parrots, turtles, and watusies as well). I just went back for the 3rd time with girlfriends for a dive trip and given the hospitality , we'll be back! Bananarama, a great PADI dive shop, is a 2 minute walk away.

Room Tip: The upstairs suite with the kitchenette is open, airy, and sleeps 3 easily.

West bay lodge

We loved this place. We were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived with Milos coming up to our bungalow & personally helping us to settle in. The bungalows are very well appointed & you can even choose from a huge selection of DVDs to watch in your room. We especially loved the huge verandah with hammock.

West bay beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have come across in my worldwide travels; perfect sand, clear sea with reef that you can easily swim out to. It's an easy walk from the hotel. Only problem was, we hated sharing the beach on cruise ship days. We were there in august which is low season & there is only 1 ship in port a couple of days a week, but even then the beach feels horribly crowded for the few hours they all flock there. Celeste said that in february there can be half a dozen ships in port at the same time so I hate to think what it would be like then. At the far west area of the beach it's quieter & very scenic, with a wooden jetty & a restaurant with swings as seats. A bit further on is Bite on the Beach restaurant, a great place to eat with spotlights over the sea at night to see fish & a diverse menu. The best snorkelling is through a channel towards the east end of the beach, fantastic fish to see & turtles if you're lucky.

Anyway, back to west bay lodge, the pool is beautiful & we often had it to ourselves. Mealtimes are very amusing due to the parrots hopping onto your table. Everyone is very friendly & the owners & staff go out of their way to chat to you & check you're ok.

Would recommend without hesitation. Perfect for a few chill out days in lovely surroundings.

What a lovely property and fantastic pool! We stayed in August and had a great time. Everything was perfect! The owners and staff were very helpful. The food was great. I enjoyed eating with the parrots every morning and swimming in the pool every afternoon.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting the larger bungalow if available

The West Bay Lodge is a small collection of bungalows. The proprietors are a friendly and helpful couple and are integral to the charm of the place. The staff is similarly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed several meals at the lodge, including the excellent lobster dinner. The lodge is in easy walking distance of the beach and restaurants of West Bay. A small shopping area, with a good deli, a coffee shop, and gift stores, is just a on the other side of the road. The lodge was very quiet. We would recommend the lodge to our friends.

A couple small issues to consider:
-A small menagerie of cats and parrots share the dining area at breakfast and lunch: fun the first day, less so later.
-The room, while not dirty, needed a “spring cleaning” (Or should that be a “dry season cleaning”?)

We stayed at the lodge from jul 14-21 didnt expect much from viewing the pictures on their website , but was pleasantly suprised at the condition and size of the bungalow, they also have ac which is a must in Roatan. If you get a bungalow that has a kicthen and you plan on making meals , the food is not that expensive if you go to the supermarket in French Harbour, they have most of the same groceries like rest of North America. From day one both the staff and owners(milos and celeste) were very nice and helpful with anything we ask/needed. We booked the july package that included breakfast and lunch , which in my opinion is the best way to go , since it gives you a chance to try out different places for dinner. At breakfast time there were lots of people from other resorts eating breakfast at the lodge, because it was cheaper than having breakfast at their resorts. After talking to few of them and hearing how much more they paid for their stay which didnt include any meals , i was happy i booked my stay at the West Bay Lodge. One piece of advice to anyone thinking of coming to Roatan is to bring spf 50 sunscreen(thicker the better) , we had spf 30 and wasnt enough. The sun is really strong in Roatan , so from noon-3pm not recomended to be in the sun. We learned this the wrong way when we burned a little while walking past noon. There are many different activities available to do like diving/zip line/butterfly gardens/marine park, generally you get better deals when you have 4 or more ppl for these activities. The beach is 2-3 mins from the lodge and snorkling is amazing at west bay beach, you walk in the water and after 20-30 feet you run into the reef which is like watching an underwater national geographic show in real time. Underwater camera is highly recomended since the variety of marine life is huge, anything from baracuda/eel/parrot fish...You can either pay with local currency or american dollars, the conversion rate is roughly 1/20, so 100 lempiras is around $5. One thing we will do different next time we come to Roatan is to stay longer than 7 days , the longer the better.

Room Tip: bungalow 5 , much bigger than the pictures show, perfect for family with kids or more than one coupl...

My husband and I chose this hotel based on the reviews. It was our first time to Roatan so we really had no idea what to expect. We had a queen bungalow, perfect for a couple. We had our own deck complete with hammock. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, and the water was hot in the shower. The mini bar prices were cheap, especially compared to what you find in most hotels. And the bottled water was free!!! Huge savings. They have a 5gal (environmentally friendly) water bottle in the room. We just filled up a couple of small bottles we purchased and put them in the fridge every night so they would be cold the next day. As the other reviews indicate Celeste, Milos, and the rest of the staff are super friendly and willing to help. Breakfast was homemade (from scratch) and delicious, with fresh fruit every day. And if you don't eat all your eggs the parrots will finish them off for you. The snorkel gear rental price was better than anywhere on the island, and chocolate & sea salt scrub in the spa was fantastic. The walk to the beach is short and easy. For $10/chair you can rent a chair on the beach for the whole week at Banarama (because of a deal they have with the WBL). There are palm trees on the beach but as the afternoon sets in there's not much shade on the beach, but the Lodge has small easy to carry umbrellas you can take to the beach with you. All in all we had no complaints. Our fridge was not working the first day, but as soon as we let them know, Milos came immediately to our room to make sure it was repaired, and it had already been taken care of that morning by another staff member! We had a delightful relaxing stay here. The owners obviously take great pride in making sure every guest has a pleasant stay.
