We just returned from spending two weeks at Blue Bahia Resort. I would recommend this place. Not having the noise of West End but close if you wanted to go. We had such a great time. It was relaxing and not crowded. Suzette was the best. She helped us with arrangements to

This was our first visit to the island of Roatan, and after a lot of TripAdvisor homework and research we selected this quaint tropical resort. Criteria for our search included direct beachfront, other reviews, access, and a dive shop. Blue Bahia meets all these needs with

My husband and I have been fortunate and blessed enough to take some fabulous trips, but this was the ultimate best vacation by far. Starting from the booking with Suzette, which she is an amazing host and very helpful and informational in every way! She is so fun! She checks

This place had the relaxed tropical vibe you've been looking for. We missed our first night because of flight delays, and the manager, Suzette, didn't charge us for that night, plus, they put us in two rooms instead of the smaller unit we had reserved. Everyone from the maid

The US imports are about 20% higher but generally the grocery food is same price. The restaurant is not to spendy. $12 - 13 hamburgers with fries. Specialty foods are a little higher not much though. There are good restaurants in west end that are a little cheaper.

Is the property pet friendly? If not, can you recommend one?
Hello, the Blue Bahia Resort does allow pets. But we also warn against bringing them for short stays. There are a lot of regulations and issues to deal with when bringing a pet into Roatan. The government is not always the easiest to deal with in this manner. The island of Roatan and the area around the resort have lots of jungle and forest areas where your pet could get injured or lost. And there are resort and island dogs and cats around who can be protective of their space. I do not know of any resorts that have specific pet safe areas or plans. Thanks, Jeff

Can you accommodate a vegan diet (no meat, dairy, or eggs)?
Hello, the rooms at the resort have kitchens or kitchenettes so you are able to prepare food your way. Or you can ask the onsite Beach Grill restaurant and they can accommodate your requests. When you reserve a room, you can make a note and we will make sure it happens. Thanks, Jeff

Hello, it is 2 miles to West End. It is possible to walk but there are no sidewalks and the road is not easy to walk along. I recommend to most people to just use a taxi. They are relatively inexpensive and very easy to call. We can also help arrange for a rental car for about $50 a day. I do not recommend scooters. They are very dangerous on the island. Feel free to email me with any other questions. Jeff

Hello, I can help with some information. Yes, we do have sand fleas like most islands. They are not a problem for most of the year. They are not around during the cooler months of November - April. They are only a problem in September and October. If you were going to be on the beach, I would suggest natural bug repellent during the morning and evening hours. We are located in Sandy Bay area and it is very quiet here. No noisy boat traffic. The cruise ships are on the other side of the island and we get less than 10 cruise shippers per week visiting the restaurant. We do not have music around the pool. And the only kids would be other guests. But we are a small hotel with limited rooms, and rarely have families staying with us. As for snorkeling, the depth of the water is very shallow until you get to the barrier reef. The reef is about 200 feet off shore and the depth inside does not exceed 15 feet. There are areas of sandy bottoms with bottom fish, eels, and other life. There are extensive grassy areas with lots of baby fish, seahorse, star fish, and other life. We also have rocky areas that are great for night snorkels. I have heard reports of octopus, eels, squid and many other critters. You will enter and exit by the ladders at the end of the dock. That is also the best place to spend time away from the beach fleas. The scuba diving is incredible. The reef is very healthy. Most of the dive sites we visit are less than 10 minute boat ride away. And they are very diverse from shallower areas to deep water, wrecks and canyons all easy to explore. Feel free to contact us if you have more questions. Trust me, I hate sand fleas also and this island has a relatively mild issue with them. I have been places much worse. Jeff
