the place is just perfect to spend time with friends or family the swimming pool have a perfect size the master bedroom is perfect for a romantic night the beach is just a few steps away the rest of the place is nice but there is a little problem....you have no privacy the security guy is always sitting in front of the pool facing the building and trying to talk to our ladies and he spend the night just in front of us

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sure the security thought he was doing the right thing by keeping an eye on things but we will talk with him and explain he needs to keep a little more distance.

Found this place through TripAdvisor. Had good ratings, was on the beach, and just a little bit away from West End. Decided to book it and take a chance. Received word from the agency in a very short amount of time confirming our booking. Liz was great in keeping us informed and answering questions as the time for our stay came closer. The day we were to arrive she had checked our flight and found that we had been delayed. She did try to contact me to tell me that the leasing office would already be closed and that she would send a driver to pick us up. We were delayed but not terribly. Didn't know that he was there but he found us. We had rented a car so we just followed him to the property. We actually happened to see her on our way the property and she walked on down to show us around.

The stay was great, a little windy (given that Hurricane Earl came through in the middle of the week). The property is well cared for. There is a grounds keeper (Eldon) that works hard to keep everything kept up outside. We had a couple little things that were not working as intended and were corrected very quickly.

Honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Selfishly I'd hate for the place to become busy and I not able to get it again. Would I stay here again? Yes, I plan on it. If you book it tell Liz I recommended it! Maybe she will give me a discount :)

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was truly one of the most magical places I've visited and Villa del Playa ranks among the best on the island to stay at, not only in terms of the quality of accommodations, but also because of the staff & convenience of being so centrally located right on the beach between West Bay Beach (which is one of the best swimming beaches I've ever had the pleasure of visiting) and West End (which is full of cool shops and restaurants). West Bay & West End are both walking distance, but for $3 you can catch a water taxi as they go by to get to either also.

Right next door are restaurants, but it isn't very busy at Villa del Playa either because it's at the very edge of West End. Roatan is the best place to visit if you want something that isn't your typical tourist trap because it's about an equal mix of locals, ex-pats, people that live there part of the year, and tourists. The place just hasn't been commercialized like a lot of places I've been so it's very pristine and natural-feeling.

The staff at Villa del Playa was excellent as well. Special thanks to Eldon (who takes care of the maintenance there) for being such a great help the whole time too -- Eldon would always give us helpful tips or cut open fresh coconuts for us to try & it really contributed to our overall experience.

“An epic adventure of a lifetime”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in February 2014

Being able to stay in this amazing condo right on the beach on one of the most gorgeous and peaceful islands I have ever visited is an experience I will treasure forever! The condo was ideal because it was clean and decorated beautifully which made us feel even more comfortable and at home. Having the pool right out our front door was perfect as it was private and a nice alternative to the ocean. The blue channel is directly out from the condo and we could jump in the kayaks provided with access to some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world! We also enjoyed being only a 10 minute walk into West End allowing us to buy fresh fruit daily, eat out if we didn't want to cook, as well as enjoy some fun evening activities. Without a doubt we will visit again!
