This place is awesome one of our favorite places to eat we stayed at the Grand Roatan but seem to walk down the beach everyday they have great drink specials great mojitos and their lobster burritos are to die for they have a great lobster dinner with three lobster tails and sides that's phenomenal service is always good you could sit at the bar under the patio or on the dock lots of seating area and yes that is a picture of an octopus that we saw and found right in front of their dock area if I could have loaded more than 10 pictures I would have put some more pictures of the octopus it was amazing so do yourself a favor either stay there and if you don't make sure you go there for lunch dinner drinks hanging out you call it they got it check it out on a side note we met some people that worst and they're diving and they said they have a great doc package with a meal plan and their dive instructor is amazing so we will be back

Thank you so much guys for your great review. Please give us the chance to offer you one of our superior bungalows, should you consider to come back to Roatan. We surely won't compare to the standards of the rooms at Grand Roatan , but I would say that we definitely beat with the location and the view of our bungalows !

Any bad review of this property is from traveler who is lost and confused.
They can get a room up the beach for 500 per note. This place has it all, just on a small scale. I've stayed at the Myan Princess previously and to compare Los Rocas has better food, drinks, hospitality, and dont forget location. No need to share your resort with cruise shippers here.

Thank you so much for your great review.
We don't pretend to be the best or a luxurious resort of Roatan . As a matter of fact we are quite the opposite. A small, casual, barefoot resort with a great location and very affordable prices.
Please consider staying with should you plan to come back to Roatan.

The service at Las Rocas is amazing. We were treated like royalty by the staff! My husband loved the diving and I loved snorkeling. Winston, Raul, Elio in the bar are the best guys ever. Fun to talk to and we had the best made Mint Juleps as they make them from scratch right in front of you.
We did not care for the sand flies and wore bug repellent at dusk and dawn. Christine and Sasha in the office will give you all the tips you need for a fun stay!

Room Tip: Rooms that are higher have better views but all units are delightful with a hammock for resting and they are all near the pool and water.

The atmosphere at Las Rocas Resort is wonderful. It was peaceful, quite and extremely relaxing. Winston the bartender is a wealth of knowledge and makes you feel at home. The platform beds were a little noisy and stiff for my liking. The house keeping staff respected your space and were willing to assist with any additional accommodations, towels etc. The diving in Roatan is absolutely breathtaking. Alex and Laura are wonderful dive instructors but the rental equipment is aging. Would definitely book again.

First, to avoid scaring off people that are looking for a decent cheap hotel, I must say that if you are looking for very low cost but still get something that is reasonable and not disgusting, this is probably a good value for your money.

Now to list the problems I encountered:

- The website is very misleading. It makes you think that this is a beautiful little boutique hotel, very well kept and with good service. It is not quite so. I'll explain below.

- The rooms are not very clean. Not horrible, but definitely short of what you'd expect from a hotel. I think they clean maybe once every 3 days or so.

- Sheets and blankets are clean, but they have old stains. When we asked they change them they did... but they didn't even have replacements of the right size.

- Towels were in bad shape and should have been replaced long ago. Several even had holes.

- The shower was the worst of it. It was nasty enough that I had to wear flip flops to shower.

- Did not have enough hangers, although they gave us more when requested.

- Unlike most hotels, breakfast starts late, at 8am. Not even close to adequate if you are planning to do various activities, especially if those activities are out of the hotel. Worse... they are slow. Most days we needed to leave at 8:15 and breakfast did not reach our table until 8:10.

- WiFi is reasonably priced ($20 for the week) but drops constantly and you must reconnect.

- The shuttle to the airport left too late for comfort. They assured us that the airport would be nearly empty at the time that we arrived but that was a total lie, it was full, with long lines, and we barely made it to boarding. The truth is that they wanted to make only one trip so lying was convenient to them.

Even with all the above issues we still had a good vacation mainly due to the island and the diving being gorgeous.

General notes (not limited just to the hotel itself):

- The coral reefs are easily the healthiest I've seen. It makes for awesome diving.

- Diving outfits have so many customers that they don't need to try to satisfy customer's desires. They set a schedule and you pretty much take it or leave it. They won't commit to an outing unless it has a minimum number of divers, and they will promptly cancel an outing if some divers cancel... often without bothering to notify you. I strongly recommend choosing an outfit with so many customers and destinations that you can get what you want when you want it (although you will get no personalized attention), or carefully select an outfit for a private outing.

- Most of the special tours and outings are done by a single outfit, no matter who you sign up with and how much you pay. For example, shark dives are done on Saturdays in a single place, and Dolphin encounters/snorkeling by another. Speaking of which, the dolphin snorkel is very good and I strongly recommend (it is the 2nd part after the encounter) it if you go see them, but be prepared to pay plenty and then some more for the photos... but still worth it. The butterfly and monkey place is also quite good and very close. The tour of the island is a bit underwhelming. The West End town is great for a night out and you can get to it quickly by water taxi, although you might need to get a regular cab for the return trip.

- You can usually do 3 dives a day (2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon) and at least once a week you can do a night dive. Most diving outfits offer Nitrox. Some include Nitrox in the price if you are already certified.

- Prices in Roatan are usually pretty high compared to the rest of Central/South America and usually not in proportion to what you pay. Customers from the US and Europe might not notice it too much, but it can be a shock for those from other countries. For example, we had a lousy lunch at $20/plate and with appalling service in an absolutely horrible restaurant during the island tour. But if you look carefully you can find better values, as we did at a wine/food restaurant by the beach in West Bay where we got a locale and service that had nothing to envy from the best restaurants in a city... for $15/20 per plate. Appearance of the locale is also not a guarantee of good food/service, we ate once at one of the most expensive hotels in West Bay and got a bad hamburger that took 45 minutes to serve even though there were few customers. In other words, do you homework and you can be very happy, but don't get frustrated if a place you pick is below par.

In summary, plan well, carefully check reviews of every place you use and you can have a very good trip.

As for Las Rocas, use it if you are looking for a bargain hotel and you are willing to put up with its defects. When compare it with other bargain hotels it is probably quite good. If you are looking for a minimum standard of quality and service... avoid it. From what I saw in the island there are a few very good options for 20-30% more in price that would satisfy most civilized customers.

Room Tip: Go for the cheapest rooms. If you are considering the better rooms... you are probably looking at a hotel below your standards.
