Thanks to Erna and Larry (owners) we could have incredible time in Cabana. They took care of us like we were their family members (without exaggeration). For example they initiated us into the mysteries of Rum Punch (Erna makes the best one on the whole island), introduced us to their Canadian friends (Wyonna and Quentin - the owners of JavaVine...

We and another couple stayed at Larry and Erna's B and B. All I have to say is that it was AMAZING! One of the best vacations I have ever had. Roatan was beautiful. The location was perfect, easy to walk to restaurants and the beach, but very private. We even had our own pool! Larry took us on hikes...

I wish I could say we didn't love this vacation more than any other ... But it would only be to keep this gem of a getaway all to ourselves! We love the Caribbean and our vacation to Roatan showed us the greatest jewel those seas have to offer. And Rumors on Roatan offered the comfort, relaxation, and flexibility we...

This was the perfect place to vacation - a block from the best beach on the island, yet our own private pool. Breakfast by the pool each morning was fantastic. The owners take such good care of you and make sure you enjoy every day of your vacation. I would highly recommend staying at this B&B.

We just returned from two weeks on the island, staying with Erna and Larry at Rumors. Everything about our stay was excellent. From the delicious rum punch when we arrived, the amazing and filling breakfast, to the conversations and happy hour on their upper deck, it was all incredible. The hosts are so kind and generous and looked after our...

Rumors on Roatan exceeded our expectations. My husband and I spent one week at this guesthouse in West Bay and I can honestly say it's the first time I have ever felt that I could recommend accommodation with 100% confidence. Larry and Erna were wonderful hosts who provided us with information about area attractions and restaurants, a guided walking and...

We stayed for 12 days in Feb/Mar, 8 in the cabana, 4 in the studio (the cabana's way better and worth the extra cost). As others have said, they think of everything :-) We wasted precious suitcase space bringing 4 towels only to have Rumors provide complete separate sets of towels for the room, the pool and the beach! The...

Where to begin!?! Staying at Rumors on Roatan was truly a great choice. It will happily exceed the needs and expectations of 99% of travelers. Larry and Erna operate a wonderful establishment, and at the end of your trip you’ll hardly remember you booked at a B & B and weren’t just staying with old friends. Right away, even before...

I did all the research possible before arriving and even my wildest expectations were surpassed from the moment we stepped foot on the property. Aside from the immaculate cabana and delicious breakfast, Larry & Erna made us feel like more than treasured guests.....they made us feel like family! Now we wish we were officially related. It was so lovely to...

It's Perfect. That sums it up. Larry and Erna have thought of everything to ensure their beautifully designed cabana meets every need. We were amazed and appreciative of a refreshing drink made for us upon arriving and a personal tour of West Bay. Absolutely delicious breakfasts (I am taking home 2 recipes!), and great location to the beach/snorkeling/restaurants of West...
