It's a beautiful location with the center house including a large kitchen, dining room and family area and a wrap around deck. The two upstairs bedrooms are reached through a breeze way and for the downstairs bedroom is outside and down the steps. The pool is lovely as is the deck surrounding the pool with a view of the ocean and reef.
The staff that picked us up at the airport and provided security and assistance with the kayaks, snorkeling gear were very nice. We took a boat trip to Jade Island in the resorts boat and it was a fun, beautiful and isolated location.
Now the negatives...The Villa is very isolated. It's a 25 min drive to the grocery store. If you stay there it makes sense to make as few trips as possible and take advantage of the cooking service for $30 for up to six people. We did three meals through this service. We requested the grocery shopping be done by the cook since no ingredient lists were provided. The garlic shrimp was good but the ingredient price must of been drastically inflated. Other than shimp the only ingredients were rice, vegetables for salad and bread? We did pizza and requested a cake for a birthday celebration. I was charged $25 for a small cake that I think came from a box mix. The pizza was OK, but we were told we were eating at 6:30 and it was after 8PM. We had the fish of the day prepared and it was terrible and again over priced compared to what food costs out in Roatan.
The cleaning service is virtually nonexistent. Yes they straighten the bed, wash towels and broom sweet the floor, but everything is sticky and dusty. The main part of the house is open without screens other than the sliding door. You have to open the windows because there is no air conditioning in that part of the home. Ants and small spiders are everywhere. The rugs and filthy, the upholstery is moldy and the kitchen is sticky. Part is island living but the dust on every lamp and mold can be managed with some actual cleaning.

We just returned from our second trip to this incredible Roatan destination. The first time we stayed in The Barista and just returned from a week long stay with family and friends at the Fuego. I cannot say enough about the wonderful surroundings and staff. Rosa is the most amazing cook I have ever encountered and is well worth the cost of having her cook for you. I even paid her to do our grocery shopping. The house was always immaculate. Bedding clean, anything you put in the clothes hamper will be returned washed folded and smelling awesome. First time I ever came home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. With an international calling plan your phone will work. They also give you a local phone so you can always reach them when you are out exploring the island. This is very handy. I travel abroad yearly and this is the only place I have returned to visit. We never felt unsafe, out of a group of ten, two of us were bothered by bugs. the water is warm, beautiful sunsets, great hospitality. I will return again so thanks Phil, Rosa, Jessica, Fausto, Teresa and all the rest of the staff for making our vacation truly relaxing and unforgettable. The only problem I have is deciding which house to stay in. They each have their own special feel. Decisions, decisions...we will be back !!!
