Located right on the beach on the beautiful island of Roatan, Villas del Playa 5 is a luxurious condo, providing both comfort and proximity for your perfect vacation getaway. Roatan itself is an Island off the mainland of Honduras, and is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef in the world. This makes Roatan one of the best places to scuba dive and snorkel, along with kayaking, paddle boarding, and relaxing in the sun and enjoying a cold drink.
The Villas del Playa units are located at the end of West End Village, halfway between West End and West Bay. West End is a cute area of the Island that is filled with bars, restaurants... and shops. This is not a strictly-tourist area; islanders and expats alike live and work in West End. West Bay has one of the nicest beaches in Roatan - a place where the reef comes almost right up to the shore line, making it very easy to just hop into the water and enjoy the reef.
In Villas del Playa 5, you will find that this 3 bedroom (ensuite bathrooms) penthouse is on the third floor, giving you a fantastic view of the clear blue waters of the Caribbean. An even better view is on the second level of the penthouse- a fully equipped rooftop treasure. On the roof, you will find plenty of outdoor seating/lounge chairs, a full kitchen and BBQ to host a party with your friends or family, a full bath, and a private pool.
Inside the penthouse, the master bedroom has a King-sized bed in it, with a sliding glass door that leads out to the patio. There is also a walk-through closet that leads to the ensuite bathroom, which is equipped with a Jacuzzi and stand up shower. There is also an open living, dining, and kitchen space, making the already large Villa feel immense. In the back is the second and third bedrooms, One with a Queen-sized bed and the other with has two single beds (with the option to turn into a king) - both have their own ensuite bathroom. The sofa in the living room is a sleeper sofa, so there is the potential to have 8 people stay in this condo.
The Villa is also equipped with many new amenities, such as front loader washer and dryers, new furniture and linens, fully stocked kitchen, A/C throughout the unit with fans, Flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player, and the use of the pool.and, of course, access to the Caribbean Ocean!

Amazing Vacation on the beautiful island of Roatan
Left on 02/20/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | catschnell
My husband and I stayed at the Villas Del Plays unit #5 for two weeks with another couple. We had a wonderful time and spent a lot of time on the rooftop either floating in the private pool or just gazing out at the brilliant blue ocean. We snorkelled just out from the dock in front of the unit but did find that the water taxi traffic was very busy and dangerous. There were two kayaks at our disposal and we paddled out to the edge of the reef and tied off on one of the buoys. Villa Del Playa is right in front of the Blue Channel snorkelling site Beautiful!! We booked on line and communications with Roatan Life was always prompt. Mark Flannagan arranged our taxi pickup at the airport for 4 for 25.00 american and for an additional 10.00 we stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few groceries. Our driver was Channin Boddine, he made us feel welcome and very safe. Channin is a hard working Island resident raising a young family with extensive knowledge of the island and it's history. We also booked an Island road trip with him for 100.00 for the 4 of us which we enjoyed very much. I would suggest that if your group drinks a lot of beer this type of trip would be when you should pick up case lots of beer from the distributor on the other side of the island...very cheap that way :). Everything needs to be carried up the three flights of stairs...great exercise! There is a young man Eldin working for the property that helped us carry in luggage groceries etc. He worked very hard keeping the property clean and running smoothly. I was concerned about safety issues in Honduras but found that I felt very safe on the Island...just don't do stupid things, no different than Calgary or any other city for that matter. Do bring lots of bug spray with deet...and use it plus sun screen and keep applying it. It wears off especially in the water. We booked an all day catamaran snorkelling trip through Mark with the Stray Cats and had a wonderful time, highly recommend them
