“Nothing fancy, but great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

I stayed at Foster for few days. Rooms are nothing fancy, but I wasn't planning on spending much time in it except for sleeping at night. The location is great, literally few steps away from the beach. Service was very good too. I'd definitely come back again!

My family (wife, daughter and son-in-law, and 3 grandkids ages 2-6) spent a wonderful day at Foster's West Bay Resort on our cruise stop with NCL Spirit. Beautiful beach with decent snorkeling close to shore. Great for kids and families. Food from the restaurant will very good. Friendly and helpful staff. Great security on site.

We stayed in the Roundhouse suite #3 on the lower level. The suite is very spacious and welcoming. You are right behind the dive center Anemona and still have a nice view of the beach. You are tucked away in the corner so it is very peaceful and quiet and set away from the restaurant where they have a live band at night in case you are early to bed. The bathroom was nothing special and there were some holes in the wall and you could see out the shower wall up to the rafters outside but hey, it's Honduras! Once we figured out how to get hot water from the shower (turn it to the right!) I was good. The bedroom has a wall a/c unit which froze me every night but my husband loved it. Definitely keeps you cool. There is also one in the living room as well. Foster's hotel has the best location on the West Bay beach in my opinion because you are at the end of the beach so once the cruise ships tourists leave, you really have the beach to yourselves. Although I was disappointed in the hotel pics it showed a hammock on our porch but when we got there it wasn't there anymore. I would definitely stay here again. I never wanted to leave!

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.

Room Tip: Don't select Fosters. Consider the Mayan Princess. For a little more, you get modern amenities a...

We rented a lower studio near the Bay right across form the dive shop.
It was cheap, so we didn't expect much. It exceeded our expectations and was great!
The room had a generous size fridge, toaster, coffee pot (didn't work right) microwave, and all the plates and silverware you needed. Bed was a little stiff, but was clean. Plenty of pillows and the AC left us plenty cool. Had an adequate amount of privacy and the bathroom (strange layout) worked great as well.
The restaraunt had fantastic breakfasts for a fair price. I would recommend walking down the beach to have dinner elsewhere though. It was my first experience where I needed a knife to cut lobster.....grrrrr.
I would reccomend this place if you can book for $90 or less. Good value.

Room Tip: No rooms had great view of water. Save your money and book the lesser priced ones. Lower levels sa...
