The Best Places to Stay in Roatan

Since I lived in Roatan for a full year, a hotel room wasn’t going to cut it. After my first month spent in luxury at the Meridian, I ended up renting a long-term apartment in Half Moon Bay. Although the apartment itself was not my favorite…(roaches literally EVERYWHERE), the location could have not been more perfect. If you prefer an Airbnb over a hotel, I would highly recommend searching the options in Half Moon Bay. 

Below, you’ll find a mini guide to the best neighborhoods to stay in Roatan. Choose between the three areas below based on your budget, travel style, and who you’re traveling with (honeymoon, solo trip, etc.).

West End = Main expat area, plenty of bars and restaurants, the site of the best Roatan nightlife, easily walkable, more Airbnbs and mid-level hotels, perfect for solo travelers and friends traveling together. 

West Bay = Main tourist area, mostly all-inclusive resorts and high-end accommodations, more expensive restaurants, best beach on the island, perfect for honeymooners or family vacations. 

Sandy Bay = More remote and quiet, not walkable, beautiful beaches, some restaurants but they are few and far between, amazing snorkeling, and affordable accommodation.

Now that you’ve decided on a location, it’s time to browse the best places to stay in Roatan!

Budget-Friendly Accommodation

If you’re visiting Roatan on a tight budget, worry not – the island offers various accommodations that won’t break the bank. Let’s explore some of the best places to stay in Roatan on a budget that combine comfort, convenience, and affordability.

In my opinion, the West End Dive Resort is the best budget-friendly accommodation available on Roatan. Located in the heart of West End (my favorite area of the island), it’s only a short walk away from the best local restaurants in Roatan, the most fun bars, and most of the island’s dive shops.

The resort offers both private and dorm-style rooms, depending on your budget, as well as an on-site restaurant, dive shop, and massive swimming pool. The rooms also have air conditioning – which means you won’t have to add a thousand extra shirts to your packing list for Roatan (because you’ll inevitably sweat through all of them).

PROS 👍🏼

  • Affordability ✔️
  • Location ✔️
  • Great social atmosphere ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, bar, and restaurant ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Options for shared or private living spaces ✔️
  • Parking ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No all-inclusive options ❌
  • No luxurious amenities ❌
  • Limited hours at reception ❌
  • No beachfront access (although the beach is not far) ❌
  • Breakfast not included ❌

For those visiting Roatan Island on a budget, the Roatan Backpacker’s Hostel is a great option for accommodation. They offer a variety of dorm rooms, lofts, and private rooms for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room on the island. The hostel also has an on-site restaurant, Mel’s Diner, and a good-sized swimming pool.

The biggest downside to staying at the Backpacker’s Hostel is the location on the far side of Sandy Bay. The location makes walking to the bars and nightclubs in West End impossible and taking taxis everywhere is an added complication on your vacation. However, the hostel does offer plenty of fun activities like this cooking class for Honduran chicken in homemade coconut milk!

Hotel Los Corales offers a minimalist setting, perfect for travelers seeking a basic yet comfortable place to stay. Although the location requires a brief 5-10 minute stroll on the side of the road to reach West End, the convenience and affordability of the hotel make it an appealing choice for travelers on a budget.

The most notable feature of Hotel Los Corales is the massive turtle statue covering the entirety of the hotel’s roof. It’s either a massive eyesore or completely hilarious…although I guess for me it was both. As a bonus, you’re right across the street from the Petrosun gas station – where you can get a killer breakfast baleada for $1.50.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Affordability ✔️
  • Location ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Bookable activities ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Dive packages available ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No swimming pool ❌
  • No beachfront access ❌
  • No on-site restaurant ❌

Posado Arco Iris boasts an ideal location in the heart of Half Moon Bay, a location I’m personally familiar with as it’s just a few steps away from my old apartment. While I haven’t actually stayed there myself, I’m familiar with the rooms since a few of my close friends booked this hotel for their Roatan stays.

The small and charming hotel offers basic, yet comfortable, accommodations with all the necessary amenities for a relaxing vacation. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped and their on-site restaurant, the Argentinian Grill, is delicious (if not a bit expensive).

PROS 👍🏼

  • Affordability ✔️
  • Location ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • Discounts at both Argentinian Grill locations (one is on-site and one is in West Bay) ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Breakfast ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • Air conditioning is an additional charge ❌
  • No swimming pool ❌
  • No luxurious amenities ❌
  • No all-inclusive options ❌

If you’re traveling to Roatan on a budget but are dead-set on staying in West Bay, then Bananarama Dive Resort might be the perfect accommodation option for you.

Personally, I would prefer to choose one of the budget-friendly options in West End, but my aunt is obsessed with Bananarama, so they must be doing something right. The property has no swimming pool, but since it’s located directly on the beach there’s really no need for one. The rooms are very basic, but comfortable enough, and the resort is a 1-minute walk from La Placita – a street of food stalls where visitors can stretch their Honduran Lempiras into a large and delicious local meal.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Affordability ✔️
  • Location ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • On-site bar and restaurants ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Breakfast ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No swimming pool ❌
  • No parking ❌
  • No luxurious amenities ❌
  • No all-inclusive options ❌

Mid-Level Roatan Accommodations

Among the best places to stay in Roatan, these mid-level accommodations offer a fantastic blend of comfort and affordability. They strike a perfect balance for tourists who want to experience the island’s luxury and prime locations without stretching their budget too thin.

The Beach House Boutique Hotel in West End is without a doubt one of the best places to stay in Roatan. This recently redone hotel is stunning – they even built around a massive tree in the middle of the open lobby.

Although there’s no swimming pool, the Beach House offers an on-site restaurant and bar, room service, beachfront rooms with balconies, and a spa. It’s also right next door to my favorite dive shop, Sun Divers, where you can book dives to explore the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. 

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • On-site restaurant and bar + room service ✔️
  • Gift shop with trendy clothes ✔️
  • Spa and yoga classes ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • Might be a tad overpriced ❌
  • No swimming pool ❌
  • No all-inclusive options ❌
  • No parking ❌

The Paradise Beach Hotel is a great choice for travelers seeking a hotel in a prime location in West Bay for a fraction of the usual cost. The hotel has tons of great amenities including a swimming pool, an on-site dive center, two restaurants, a spa and fitness center, and free parking. They also offer a free shuttle service for travelers arriving at Roatan’s airport in Coxen Hole or from the cruise ports, but reviews online suggest that this service is slow and overcrowded.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, restaurants, and bar ✔️
  • Fitness center, yoga classes, and spa ✔️
  • Breakfast ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • On-site dive center ✔️
  • All-inclusive options ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Free airport shuttle ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • There is one airport shuttle for all arrivals, so it can take a long time ❌
  • Rooms are clean but basic ❌

If you’re looking for a relaxing and eco-friendly stay, Tranquilseas Eco Lodge in Sandy Bay will be your home away from home. With a low occupancy and serene location, it’s the perfect spot for a peaceful Caribbean vacation and undoubtedly one of the best places to stay in Roatan.

The resort offers an on-site pool, restaurant, dive shop, beachfront access, massages, yoga, beautiful ocean views, stand-up paddle boards, and kayaks. Although the hotel is a bit off-the-beaten-path, it’s easy to walk out to the main road and grab a taxi within minutes. Just don’t get ripped off, it only costs 30 lempiras per person to get to West End. With rooms starting at $200 per night, it’s definitely one of the best places to stay in Roatan. 

If you decide on Tranquilseas for your Roatán accommodation, make sure to mention Madison’s Footsteps at check-in for…

  • A free welcome drink
  • Free use of stand-up paddle boards and kayaks
  • $10 off massages with ocean views

PROS 👍🏼

  • On-site swimming pool, bar, restaurant, and yoga classes ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • All-inclusive options ✔️
  • Eco-friendly ✔️
  • On-site dive center ✔️
  • Affordability ✔️

  • Location ❌
  • The beaches are not as nice on this side of the island ❌

The landscaping around Tranquilseas Eco Lodge will make you feel like you’re living in a treehouse surrounded by jungle! The main walk into the resort is framed by palm fronds and tropical plants. The resort itself is built into a hill with incredible ocean views and is widely regarded, not only as one of the best places to stay in Roatan, but also as one of the best places to watch the sunset on the island.

Tranquilseas’ on-site restaurant, The Sunken Fish, serves delicious seafood and island cuisine. They’re also known for their refreshing tropical cocktails. Pro tip: order the Coco Loco served inside a fresh coconut.

If you’re planning on going out partying during your time in Roatan, then I would definitely suggest staying in West End over West Bay. Although thankfully the island has done away with the pandemic curfew, it can be difficult to flag down taxis after a certain time…especially in West Bay. If you stay in West End, you’ll be able to walk anywhere you need to go!

Brisas del Mar is the perfect mid-level hotel for anyone looking to be within walking distance of all the restaurants and bars. They have their own private pool, bar, restaurant, and beautiful stretch of beach. As a bonus, you’re only steps away from a water taxi to head into West Bay.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, bar, and restaurant ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • On-site dive center ✔️
  • Affordability ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No indoor common areas ❌
  • No all-inclusive options ❌

La Placita Inn is without a doubt one of the best mid-level hotels in Roatan Honduras. The charm of this Roatan hotel lies in its distinctive location —at the end of La Placita, a popular outdoor market in West Bay.

The hotel itself offers an on-site swimming pool, included breakfasts, free parking, air-conditioned rooms, and beachfront access for guests. In addition to the plethora of street food options outside the front door, there’s also an on-site bar and restaurant.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, restaurant, and bar ✔️
  • Included breakfast ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No all-inclusive options ❌

If you’re wondering where to stay in Roatan with a large group, then look no further than the Lollyday Inn Airbnb on Turtle Beach. 

This four-story Airbnb includes a swimming pool, air conditioning for no extra cost, full kitchen and laundry facilities, and enough beds to accommodate 12 guests comfortably. The best part of this Roatan lodging experience is the panoramic 4th-floor balcony where you can observe scarlet macaws, like the ones in Copan Ruinas, flying over the tree canopy.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Swimming pool ✔️
  • Air-conditioning ✔️
  • Affordability ✔️
  • Close to the beach ✔️
  • Full kitchen and laundry facilities ✔️

  • Accessibility ❌

The newly constructed Luna Beach Resort in West End definitely tops the charts as one of the best places to stay in Roatan on the beach. 

The resort offers an on-site swimming pool as well as beachfront access and chairs, three restaurants, a bar, and an on-site dive shop. When I lived in Roatan, I loved to grab breakfast from the Luna Bean Cafe and work in the A/C for a few hours.

Famous for being the oldest resort on the island, Anthony’s Key Resort carries a rich history and charm that enhances its appeal as one of the best Roatan hotels. The resort’s overwater bungalows have become their signature feature, and they’re surprisingly affordable.

Anthony’s Key is also home to Bailey’s Key, the site of Roatan’s dolphin experiences – which I have mixed feelings about. Although AKR is undoubtedly a great accommodation option in Roatan, its location is not ideal for tourists who wish to spend significant time in West End and West Bay.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Overwater bungalows ✔️
  • On-site dive center ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, restaurant, and bar ✔️
  • Beach access ✔️
  • Free airport shuttle ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Breakfast ✔️
  • Spa facilities ✔️
  • Massive gift shop selling necessities and souvenirs ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • Location ❌
  • The beaches over here are not as nice ❌
  • I’ve heard the restaurant is not very good (but haven’t confirmed this myself) ❌

Another beautiful spot in West Bay, The Meridian at Lighthouse Point was where I spent my first glorious month living in Roatan. With an enormous pool, a gorgeous stretch of private beach, an on-site restaurant, and beautiful, air-conditioned apartments, the only downside of The Meridian is that it’s a bit off the beaten path. However, if your primary goal in Roatan is some much-needed R & R, then The Meridian is definitely the place for you.

Megan and her family could not have been more accommodating during my time at Lighthouse Point. They were always available to answer any questions and even offered to drive me into town themselves during a couple of rainy days on the island. I loved living at The Meridian and would do it again in a heartbeat!

PROS 👍🏼

  • On-site swimming pool, bar, and restaurant ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Beachfront access with beach chairs ✔️
  • Luxurious rooms ✔️
  • Great for big groups ✔️
  • Parking ✔️

  • No all-inclusive options ❌
  • No on-site dive center ❌

Barefoot Cay Resort‘s tranquil sanctuary in Brick Bay combines affordability with luxury, making it an excellent option for travelers looking for a balance between cost and comfort. Perched on a private cay, the resort offers spectacular ocean views, fully equipped bungalows and villas, and a variety of amenities like an on-site dive center, spa, and one of the best spots for brunch on the island – Silversides.

Psst…I’ve also heard that this is one of the most popular resorts on the island for celebrities 🫣. This isn’t hard to believe considering the amount of massive yachts docked here.

PROS 👍🏼

  • On-site swimming pool, bar, and restaurant ✔️
  • Breakfast ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Spa and yoga classes ✔️
  • Private beach area ✔️

High-End/Luxury Accommodation

Wondering where to stay on Roatan in luxury? These 4 or 5 star hotels in Roatan are perfect for the bougie traveler who’s ready to enjoy their Roatan vacation on a high budget…or with no budget at all. 

If you’re looking to stay in the lap of luxury, look no further than Grand Roatan Resort. With pristine beaches, delicious cuisine, a beachfront pool, and ensuite outdoor showers (woot woot), Grand Roatan is the full, Caribbean package. After its grand opening in 2015, the owners of Grand Roatan have worked hard to uphold strong community standards and establish Honduras as a must-visit tourist destination.

Not only is Grand Roatan the epitome of Caribbean luxury, but it’s also the best place to stay in Roatan for snorkeling! Enter the ocean mere steps from the resort’s infinity pool and beach bar and you’ll witness an underwater world come to life on the reefs. 

With a long stretch of white sand beach and some of the most luxurious accommodations on the entire island, Grand Roatan is the perfect place for some rest and relaxation. To further your relaxing vacay, the resort has announced the opening of its new Kao Kamasa Spa. A four-story building inspired by the cultural traditions of the Pesh, an indigenous Honduran ethnic group, the Kao Kasma Spa includes a spa, gym, and both indoor and outdoor pools.

Infinity Bay Roatan is not only one of the best hotels in Roatan West Bay, but it’s also one of my personal favorite spots on the island. For the entirety of 2021, come Sunday you could find me and my friends with our asses firmly planted in Infinity Bay bar chairs drinking Salva Vidas and dancing to Muddy’s Bandance music. Spending Sundays at Infinity were one of our favorite things to do in Roatan!

If you’re looking for all-inclusive luxury, a great social atmosphere, and tons of high-end guest amenities – Infinity Bay might be the perfect Roatan Honduras hotel for you.

The Mayan Princess Beach & Dive Resort is one of the best places to stay in Roatan Honduras in West Bay – especially if you have the budget for luxury.

The resort’s all-inclusive options cater to a hassle-free vacation, although I personally prefer to get out and sample the local culinary scene vs. eating at the hotel for every meal. Mayan Princess offers a beachfront location with multiple restaurants, a massive swimming pool, and an on-site spa and fitness center. Due to the Kid’s Club, the resort is popular among families – so the noise might not be ideal for a serene getaway.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool, bars, and restaurants ✔️
  • Kids club ✔️
  • Beachfront access with beach chairs ✔️
  • All-inclusive options ✔️
  • On-site dive shop ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • Price ❌
  • There are a lot of families with kids so it can be noisy at times ❌
  • Booking difficulty – must reach out to the hotel directly for pricing and bookings ❌

For those seeking the epitome of opulence, Ibagari Boutique Hotel is indisputably the most luxurious hotel on the island.

Nestled in serene Turtle Beach (technically part of West Bay, but a 20-minute walk away from the main stretch), Ibagari offers elegance, natural beauty, and one of the most lavish restaurants on the island – Luna Muna.

While it’s possible to flag water taxis from this resort’s beachfront location, it can be a bit difficult to find taxis (water or land) back to this location after dark. Unless you arrange transportation with the hotel in advance, of course.

PROS 👍🏼

  • On-site swimming pool, bar, and restaurant ✔️
  • On-site yoga classes ✔️
  • Beachfront access ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Air-conditioned rooms ✔️
  • Adults-only ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

For those who love to entertain, or simply want the option to cook their own meals on vacation, there are indisputable advantages to booking Airbnb or VRBO rentals over hotels. Villa Topaz – at its luxury location in West Bay – is one of the nicest vacation rental options on the island, especially for large groups.

This luxurious rental offers a rooftop infinity pool (with 180° views), sleeps anywhere from 4-12 guests, is air-conditioned, and includes a fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer. The location could either be a pro or a con…depending on your mobility. The rental is located in West Bay, but without a vehicle, it requires a 10-minute walk down the hilly roads to get to the beach. During the day this isn’t an issue, but at night there are no streetlights or sidewalks – so the walk could be a bit dangerous.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location for guests with no mobility concerns ✔️
  • Price is great for large groups ✔️
  • Rooftop infinity pool ✔️
  • Can accommodate a lot of people ✔️
  • Air-conditioned ✔️
  • Luxurious property ✔️
  • Kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher ✔️
  • Fitness center for guest use at Infinity Bay ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • Location for guests with mobility concerns ❌
  • No all-inclusive options or hotel amenities ❌
  • No beachfront access ❌

My family has actually just booked our next trip to Roatan and will be staying in a luxurious, brand-new unit in Ocean One Villas. Stay tuned for March when I’ll have updated photos and first-hand experience staying in this new Roatan accommodation option!

We decided to book Ocean One because of its ideal location in the middle of West Bay, its ability to accommodate larger groups, the on-site swimming pool, and the high-end nature of the property.

PROS 👍🏼

  • Location ✔️
  • Air-conditioned ✔️
  • Luxurious property ✔️
  • On-site swimming pool ✔️
  • Parking ✔️
  • Kitchen, washer/dryer, and outdoor terrace ✔️

CONS 👎🏼

  • No direct beach access ❌
