As other reviewers have offered, Angelfish 203 is truly a delight. Location directly on the beach is wonderful. Views from the private pool, private decks, master bedroom and more are truly memorable. Decor is sophisticated. Central AC is efficient, quiet and equable throughout.
On lesser notes, the few downsides to the condo are: located on the second floor, mandating many steps with groceries, to the beach etc. View from the second bedroom is mostly of the adjacent condo, and lastly...both beds leave something to be desired unless you're a real firm mattress person. While there are three TV's (with DVD players) available (one each bedroom, one living room), there is no central sound system of any type...kind of an oversight appreciating cost and other super amenities.
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Lawson Rock – Angelfish 203. The view from the condo was amazing. The community is very safe with two guards at all time on site. They are very friendly and always helping out with luggage and grocery. The apartment is even more beautiful than the pictures. Everything is clean and very well maintained. The pool on the roof was our little refuge at the end of the afternoon. This unit also has filtered water and a very useful ice maker, two lovely surprises.
I do recommend renting a car. Go to the West End the see the sunset. Take a day at West Bay on the beach. On the East Side we had lunch at the Serena. Lawson Rock is very well situated on the island. You will see a lot of guards everywhere. They are working hard to keep the island safe, they do not want it to become like the continent.
For grocery we add problems finding everything we wanted at the beginning. We went at the wrong places. Do not waste your time, go to Eldon’s. Plaza Mar is less expensive but choices are limited. The Bulk Gourmet has high quality meats and refined grocery. We continued to the next village and found a fish store (name?) it was recommended to us by the Bulk Gourmet. We found fresh fish and hugged lobster tails.
The beach at Lawson Rock is cleaned up regularly, they really try to limit damaged of insects. Not much beach flea on that beach but they are mosquitos on the site. I do attract unwanted insect more than the average. Even if I would put a repellent cream in the morning and spray regularly in the day, I was eaten alive. The problem is on the whole island.
We had a chef one night; this was arranged trough reception and Detour Roatan. We were 5 and the charge for a Seafood Soup, Calamari, Lobster and Key Lime Pie was 231$. A royal treatment at a more then fair price. Five Stars to Jenny our chef!
We went deep sea fishing with Ruthless Roatan Charters. It was an amazing excursion. We do recommend. Salty Mango for lunch, you must try. Jet Ski Tour with La Casa Roatan, located on the beach. The best way to see the island is from the sea. Kevin was our guide. We really enjoyed this tour. We went scuba diving and took diving experimentation with Blue Island Diver. Excellent service and also at walking distance (on the beach) of Lawson Rock.
Lawson Rock – Angelfish 203 is a wonderful installation very well situated. We highly recommend it and we will certainly return there when returning to the beautiful island of Roatan.
The property is awesome. Great accommodations, luxurious ans spacious. The rooftop pool is heaven for night swims under the stars. The two outdoors terraces are comfortable and offer breath taking views! The double sun deck in the sea is a marvelous place to swim, relax and enjoy fabulous sunsets! Great staff around to help with anything we need. Great 5 stars!!!
Spacious, luxurious, new furnishings and rooftop pool made this a great condo. You get a consistence breeze which is important to me and the view is wonderful. The back-up generator was great since the island lost power 4 times during our week long stay. Never waited longer than 30 seconds for a taxi. I did alot of research trying to pick the perfect place and I have no regrets choosing this one. You can't go wrong with this unit.
