My 21-year-old daughter and I had an unsurpassed week of fun and true relaxation here. We occupied the purple cabana and were mesmerized by its unspoiled views of crystal clear sea water, shimmering horizon and tranquil sunsets. Hard to rise from the hammock but well worth it for three truly delicious home-cooked meals served each day to the accompaniment of two parrots who greatly amuse. We were novice snorkelers but thanks to the expertise and patience of Terry and Patrice, owners of the lodge, we are novice no more. I'd never sailed but Terry had me tacking the Hobe within no time. Kayaks are also available and, for an extra charge, there's fishing even for those of us who don't want to touch a hook (me); I hauled in three tuna-- another first! I feel very lucky to have discovered this via an internet search and have been recommending it to all our cold-weather friends.

Room Tip: All the cabanas seem identical. I don't think you can go wrong. There are also a couple of rooms in the main lodge which is a beautiful dwelling but you won't be right on the water.

Mango Creek is as charming as are the hosts Terry and Patrice. The cottages with decks are built over the water and are painted bright caribbean colors. A walk around the property reveals Terry and Patrice's hidden dream home, walking paths, bridges and is beautifully landscaped. The surrounding landscape is steep with thick tropical vegetation, duppies (ghosts) and possible pirate treasure.

Ask Patrice if you can read her copy of Anne Jennings book, "Roatan Odyssey" or pick up a copy at BJ's bar in Oak Ridge when Terry picks you up. It will give you a flavor of the area you are to visit.

We enjoyed our daily adventures: kayaking to the reef in front of the lodge and seeing a magnificent eagle ray, a boat adventure to the mangroves looking for sea crocodiles, a boat trip to Pigeon Key where we snorkeled and saw pristine coral, sea fans and fish. We stopped to snorkel at a ship wreak. Scuba diving with our instructor Leif was fun. We sailed around the tiny Cow and Calf cayes.

We enjoyed the informal meal times and lengthy conversations with Terry and Patrice and other guests and neighbors who stopped by. We were treated to a very romantic candlelight lobster dinner on top of the boat house one evening!

The week went by too fast. We hope to visit again sometime and encourage anyone who wants to "unplug', enjoy nature, and have some adventure to stay here!

What a breath taking and relaxing vacation after we got married. We loved the food, accommodations and the adventures. We would love to bring friends back to such a beautiful place! Our favorite day was a trip to Pigeon Key to snorkel, on the way there we fished a bit and had the chance to swim with a pod of dolphins-amazing!

We spent a wonderful week at Mango Creek. Terry and Patrice are excellent hosts, the cabanas are beautiful and very, very clean. Food was great and plentiful. Snorkeling was outstanding! Trip to Pigeon Key was like a great way to end the week, a remote island with beautful white sand beach, great snorkeling, fishing even a novice can do (Michael and Walter are great guides) and no one else around. Most relaxing vacation we've had in years.

Mango Creek is a truly amazing place and a great adventure starting with BJ's Bar in Oak Ridge where we waited to be picked up. We had a few beers and a great time there visiting with the ex pats and locals and BJ herself. We traveled by boat to the lodge, colorful cabanas over the water with lovely wooden interiors and furniture. Beautiful setting , beautiful property , lovely people who own it. We did not come to fish, although they do a lot of that there, but we did snorkle and one day went to Pigeon Cay for swimming and snorkling with lunch prepared and served on the beach by Dalia the most amazing cook. Seriously, some of the best food we experienced on the island. French toast made with bread she had made the night before, coconut shrimp with the coconut fresh off the tree, I could go on and on about the food it was that good. Terry and Patrice are great hosts and such interesting people. They really make you feel like part of the family. The few days we spent there were so relaxing. Eastern Roatan is so beautiful. If you get the chance don't miss Mango creek. Well worth it .
