The Reef House is a first class scuba diving resort. The resort is set up to accommodate divers and their schedules. The price includes 3 boat dives each day along with all meals. The owner, david byrne is very gracious and professional. The diving is first class with walls, fish, crabs, lobsters and a whole lot more! The boat captain..Choco...and...

This is such a unique hotel, location, great food and drink. The service, food and drink are always great..staff wonderful! The location is awesome with it's own swim area which you could spend all day in, volleyball net / court in the water, cornhole court, and options for snorkeling to diving. So great that I am planning a family reunion...

Living and working on Roatan is incredible. However, oftentimes work gets in the way of actually being able to enjoy all that the island has to offer, particularly East End destinations and activities. Well, after a year and a half, I decided to quit my job and take advantage of the island while I could; I immediately booked an overnight...

We went to a party at the Reef House yesterday. There were 2 guys playing music, the place was filled with expats and some islanders, people were eating, swimming, and socializing. The cook was grilling pork chops and the platters of food were HUGE. Their beer is ice cold, their drinks actually have booze in them and they aren't stingy...

Well if you are looking for a place to be treated like you are the only guest they have this is the place. It is nothing fancy but if you want to be waited on and request anything they make sure it happens. The owners and staff are very nice. They do everything they can to make your stay pleasant....

The Reef House Resort isn't the most "fancy" place in the world; but if you are a scuba diver, don't you expect the BEST thing about your trip to be the diving? The resort is a comfortable and relaxing place that provides all of your needs; good food, a comfortable room, and great views of the water. What makes this...

So this review is meant to help out folks who have not yet been to Roatan or Reef House Resort and briefly touch on some areas not already mentioned in previous reviews.

A wonderful throwback to the early days of diving, this place must be like how diving was in the 80-90s. 12 'cabin' -like accomodations that were just a step or two above basic. It's simple, but the 'resort' has satellite TV in every room and wifi worked pretty much all the time, except when the storms came in and interrupted...

This is a great place to stay if you want to dive the east end of Roatan. This side has very low traffic, therefore the reef is pristine. The owners go out of there way to make you feel welcome. They have been updating the bathrooms and they are looking great. The dive team is awesome as well.

If you love beautiful, pristine reefs with plenty of marine life, and no other dive boats around, this is your place. Clean, comfortable accommodations, friendly, helpful staff, good food, and amazing diving! Year after year, we keep going back.
