No matter if you are a first time guest or returning to visit the beautiful Roatan, you will have to make the decision of whether to stay in West End or West Bay. So I thought I would write an objective post and include other Roataners preferences. But I want to hear from YOU (yes you, the reader) what you REALLY prefer as well!
For me, the answer is easy: West End! I love West End because it is close to the action where everything is going on. West Bay is around fifteen minutes away, and you stick around more at your resort or hotel property. I will say that you should be choosy about where you stay in West End – at Lands End, you are in a world all your own in West End, but a three minute walk from shops, restaurants, and bars which makes it an easy choice for me! Here are some pictures from my most recent trip to Roatan and my thought process!
West Bay does not have as many hammocks available. It is a little more uppity. I PERSONALLY love these soft hammocks – they are very soft and not the net kind that hurt your skin. I could have slept in mine all night! If you really can’t stand to leave without a hammock, you can buy one to take with you – and the great thing about the shops in Roatan is that you can barter with the locals to get a good deal!
Unique Rooms and Flare
West End is certainly more artistic and creative, whereas to me, West Bay is more uniform. I like different and unique styles, which makes West End my number one choice.
Fun People! If you want to chat or get to know a stranger in a friendly environment, West End is definitely more open to that possibility!
