We've done AC recently in May of this year and also last year and loved it. But my little crew is itching to try somewhere new for next year at least, though I don't doubt we'll be back to AC shortly after that.

So since this board has been SO incredibly helpful the last two years, and the Roatan ones I have found have been pretty sucky compared to this, I wanted to see if any of my fellow AC fans have ever been to Roatan or have any insight into where to stay there.

So any input is of course appreciated. You can always e-mail me directly versus clogging up this board, and my e-mail is

We are looking to stay in the West End / West Bay area and are looking for something with beachfront and definitely A/C, a fridge or kitchen. We stayed at Banana Beach our two times on AC so liked having the fridge and such. We are looking for something like a cabin / cabana or a villa / apt type of accomodations as we'll probably have about 10 adults or so in our crew again.

Anyone know whether you can get Belikens down there??? Still craving the darn things since we got back from AC and I have no idea what type of local beer Roatan has.

It's the sandfleas, toad.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

LOL.. wouldn't expect any different response from Peter!!

Heck, we may be back in 2005 or even late 2004 if Delta will ever get its butt in gear and fly to Belize (thats where all my FF miles are).
Anyway, if anyone does have real input about Roatan and hotels in the West End area I'd appreciate it!

I stayed at Anthonys Key with a dive group. The diving was good, but Peter is right about one thing, the vibe of AC just isn't there. If you are going because of diving, go to Utila.

Maybe this will help

I've been to Utila and loved it. It's tiny, dirt cheap, and extremely laid back (most of the people we met were European back-packers). Much less civilized than AC, and I dare say, the snorkeling was much better in Utila - you can swim right off the island and find AMAZING creatures and coral. However, I prefer AC for its character and the friendly peeps.
