I loved this place, comfortable bed, great pool, good kitchen, shower. & most of all incredible snorkeling that I enjoyed twice daily. Please note that the entry is easy but getting back out of the water is challenging for less mobile people & there are Sea urchins in the rock so you must protect you hands and feet when scrambling out of the surf. I was OK with getting out, after I started putting my sandals on my hands to protect my hands while getting out. When my wife came with me we would snorkel down 200yards to the left and exit on the beach & walk back to the villa. either way, it's slightly challenging but no problem & the reward is why you probably came to Roatan, great snorkeling.
There are 3 separate villas sharing this pool/property. We were on the main floor, there is a second floor larger 2 bedroom villa. and a separate 1 bed villa. We barely saw the other guests and it felt like we had the pool to ourselves which was awesome, but even if they would have been around that would have been fine to meet other folks.
Here's the catch, you are isolated here, which is manageable, but there is only one restaurant, "big dogs" in walking distance, and it's more for lunch and closes early.
You can walk to local small stores for beer etc. but they are not grocery stores. My suggestion is come to the villa after grocery shopping with 4-5 meals planned. take a cab to West End & West Bay for 2-3 meals. If you plan to eat out more than that rent a car.
PS. we actually didn't use cabs, I walked into town on the first day & met a local who offered & acted as our personal cab for the week, awesome, if I recall it was something like $30 USD for both drop off & pick up to west end, so not sure how much the cabs are.
The locals are friendly, we felt safe, but you will really get a feel for the local flavour of Roatan in Flowers Bay, memories I will never forget, Thanks Manny, you've got a great villa and we appreciated you dropping in on us twice to ensure we were satisfied.
It was the perfect house with the perfect view. Just what we wanted a quiet area with a view and snorkeling right there. The manager went out of his way to make our stay wonderful. The caretaker very caring and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
