We were so excited to take our first vacation in 2 years and our friends booked a trip to Roatan. The pictures on the web are completely deceptive. The place looks nothing like it. The room we stayed in was a nightmare. It looked like it hadn't been updated in decades. All of the linens had holes in them, there was no mattress pad, our sheet had blood on it, we had over 30 bees in our room because there were gaps in the door, the toilet didn't flush unless you lifted the back and pulled the ball cock, the shower head was filthy and just trickled out, all of the baseboards and paneling were broken or cracked, the stairs to the loft were a hazard, the loft was hot, the air conditioning units looked liked they had years of dirt in them, and the furniture looked dirty and old. When we expressed concerns, the receptionist alluded to the fact that this was a regular occurence and that she tried to convince the owner to either update it or change the pictures. When we complained, the owner found 2 separate rooms 2 days later for us to move in to and then wanted to charge us extra. I told him we were moving because the room was uninhabitable, not because we wanted an upgrade, and that he basically had false advertising. He moved us, but then told us every time he saw us how we were costing him money. If I had known how gross it was, he wouldn't have gotten any of our money. We ended up moving to another resort when an opening arose. The food was also less than stellar. They boast a $12 lobster night. Our lobster tails were about 4 inches long, overcooked and cold; the beans and rice were cold; the plantains were so dry, cold and tasteless.
