Stunning oceanfront condo with spacious patio & home comforts!
Spend your vacation days right on the beach when you stay at this spacious and comfortable oceanfront condo! Walk out your back door and straight onto soft white sand. Between the amazing location and modern home conveniences (including a private washer/dryer, cable, and free WiFi), you'll never want to leave!
Located on the southwestern edge of the island of Roatán in a 24-hour gated community, this condo is just down the street from nearly 20restaurants, a pharmacy, and a small shopping mall. The town of West End is less than four miles away, and Coxen Hole, where you'll find the airport, is under eight miles away. A ferry is also available to transport visitors to and from the mainland.
The condo itself is bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the ocean. Relax on the comfortable sofas in the living area while you browse the channels on the flatscreen TV, or grab a seat on the patio and bask in the ocean breeze while listening to the sound of waves crashing on the beach. Cooking is easy thanks to the well-appointed kitchen, which features ample counter space and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. There's also a second kitchenette with an electric stovetop and a full-size fridge. With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, everyone is guaranteed plenty of privacy.

The Good: excellent location near Infinity Bay resort (where you can purchase pool access, we paid $10pp per day). Well appointed kitchen, comfy beds, amaaaazing views, 24 hour security guard on site (we never locked our sliding glass door facing the beach during the day), water taxis to West End are right out front, Wifi worked the entire trip, we did not find mosquitoes to be a big problem (spray your feet and calves with Off before heading out to dinner and you will be fine), central AC works great.
The Bad: I don't think there is hot water in the third shower but I only tried once, the toilet in the master bedroom ran constantly, the ceiling fan in the master bedroom is out of balance so it clicks when it is spinning. It could use a few more drinking vessels. That is about all I can come up with.
The beach is incredible. White, power sand beach for 60 feet or so then the coral starts. You keep swimming away from the beach and the water turns crystal clear and there are fish and coral everywhere. We snorkeled for about 12 hours and scuba dived twice and we still feel like we didn't explore everything from Infinity Bay to the west end of the beach. Don't snorkel right out front. Too may boats. Walk down the beach about 200ft and go out in front of Infinity Bay.
We will definitely be back.
P.S. Our favorite restaurants during our stay were Argentinian Grill, The Blue Elephant (Thai restaurant in West End, the water taxi can drop you off on their pier), and La Palapa at Infinity Bay. Least favorite was Gula Wine Bar. it is way over priced. If you decide to go there, pay in cash. They play games with credit cards.
George, thank you for your lovely feedback! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the home and the location. We also appreciate the comments regarding the amenities the home has to offer, and items we can improve on. We truly look forward to hosting you next time!
Linda casa frente a la mejor playa de Centro America. Super comoda y amplia,
The accommodations were nice. The location and immediate access to the beach when you step out of the building, is amazing. The management company was helpful and we felt safe during our time there.
Great place I have stayed 2yrs in a row absolutely love it.
Every room has a full size, private bathroom. You get a full kitchen with full size appliances. Possibly the single best feature is that your patio walks right onto the beach
Great location- very spacious!! Literally 10 steps to the ocean!! Loved watching the sunset. Right in front of the pier where you can catch a water taxi to west end. Also next door to Infinty Divers. Just walk out to the pier and you are diving within 15 minutes!! Chairs right in front of Condo- no crowds! Would return again!!
The Good: Everybody walking on the beach without exception will look at you with envy. You will have the best location on West Bay, hands down. There is no other patio that walks out onto the beach. The photos are exactly what you should expect. It is modern, clean and in mostly very good condition. Walking out on the patio with fresh coffee in the morning or a cool drink at sunset it awesome.
We didn't know where we were situated in West Bay before we booked. Stuff like were we close to shopping, food, boat dock, scuba shop, or just people in general. It turns out we were within 30 seconds walking distance to all of the above. We went for the scuba which was excellent (Blue Planet Divers were excellent). Novice snorkelers have a treat waiting 100' outside your patio doors with beautiful reefs only feet below the surface. There is a 4' deep "ocean pool" area 50' outside the patio door for those who don't really want to swim or get your hair wet.
Shortly after we committed to the reservation we were contacted by the concierge (Christopher) who offered us a ride from the airport with a trip to the grocery store on the way in for $50 for 4 of us which was a bargain. He also offered the service of a chef to cook meals in our kitchen for a nightly fee plus groceries. These dinners turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay. We ate in every night with home cooked island cuisine at our own kitchen table at a time of our choosing that included a virtual butler service with enough leftovers to feed an army. Don't miss out on this service.
We were concerned about safety given the Honduran crime rate. We were pleased to see armed guards at all times on our property. Sometimes they were really close, but we were A-OK with that.
The Less Good:
Bugs, bugs and more bugs. Our first impression was 1000's of mosquitoes guarding the front door and the patio. Bring or buy as much bug spray as you can carry.
We were worried about drinking the water. The owners said the water was filtered, but we were still wary. We were told to expect (2) 5 gallon containers of bottled water so we didn't buy much at the store. Turns out there was only part of one 3 gallon container that was likely filled from the faucet. In the end we drank the water without issue.
There was no shampoo and not enough toilet paper.
Bottom Line: Go to Roatan. Be sure to stay in this condo. 2nd best is a big step down I cant wait to come back
Lo cerca de la playa y cerca de los mejores lugares de West Bay , seguro … lo malo es que los cuartos no tienen A/C solo la sala y comedor tienen.
Could not ask for a better location on West Bay Beach. Condo was immaculate and well appointed. Literally steps (a single step!) to the sand. Unit was very spacious — 3 BR set up was perfect for our family of 4 and easily would have accommodated a couple additional people. Always felt safe and secure — it’s within a gated communist and the condo has very attentive, friendly guards on the lookout at all times. Not to say there was even a whiff of trouble or problem (there was not). But bc the unit is so close to the sand and water, and the patio is literally right on the beach, it’s good to know someone’s always around to keep an eye out.
Plenty of fresh water to drink was a nice touch. As was the gift of SalvaVida in the fridge when we arrived!
This is a 5 star review and unit. If I had to suggest improvements, I’d say it would have been nice to have more (and perhaps higher quality) beach towels. Hardly a problem, and certainly not something that would lower my rating. But more and better towels for subsequent guests is a good idea. Otherwise, can’t say enough positive about the unit. Hope to return soon!
Also, and finally, I’d say the vacasa experience was great. Good communications, honest representation of the property, and food local info waiting for us on arrival. Only compliments, no complaints.
Couldn’t think of a better place to be located for my stay. Great location and great accommodations.
I have stayed in West Bay for over 7 years each summer. Coral Sands will now be my first go to place to stay over all previous. Worked out a deal with Infinity Bay to charge drinks and food which is 150' away. Could not have had a closer experience of staying on the beach. Security was always present.
The place was first class with all imaginable amenities. The gated community and 24/7 property security was not needed by much appreciated. The location right on the beach was awesome! The staff and place was first class. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
