The general feeling of this resort is that this is a great all inclusive diving option if you just want to dive. Don't bring people to stay here that do not want to dive as there is nothing else to do. This is situated in the east end of Roatan on a cay. The meals are considered very high quality home cooked food.
This cannot be considered a luxury resort (though Roatan and Luxury is a stretch) and it is hard for ANY resort to get this status due to the local infrastructure though there are some. The diving is what you should be here for and meeting other divers having a nice time in resort in the evening is the key to enjoying this. And for many this is clearly what is desirable so Mike the owner and one of the dive guides should be commended on creating this nice lodge resort.

Our Resort - In a Nutshell

If you have been all over the world diving, but haven't experienced diving in Roatan, you are in for a treat!

The Reef House Resort is continually chosen as one of the highest rated Scuba diving resorts on the Island of Roatan. We serve some of the best meals on the island, and all meals are included free with your stay. We provide friendly service and pleasant island style guest rooms with two queen size beds in each. You’ll have air conditioning, Internet access (optional), cable TV, private washroom with shower, ceiling fan, beautiful ocean view, and our purified drinking water is safe, cold, plentiful, and free. Your diving experience includes spectacular diving and snorkeling with the most beautiful and unspoiled coral reef the world has to offer.

Roatan is an island 35 miles in length, located about 35 miles off the Atlantic coast of Honduras, by the Caribbean Sea, in the Gulf of Honduras. Roatan is fast becoming well known as one of the world’s premier Scuba diving and snorkeling locations. The breathtaking coral reef surrounding the Island of Roatan is part of the second largest coral reef system in the world, second only to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. The Reef House Resort and Diving Facility is an historic, island-authentic diving resort, located on perhaps the healthiest portion of coral reef found anywhere in the world today. Professional diving photographers have raved over the beauty, condition, and splendor of the coral reef at the shore diving in front of our resort, and at all our diving locations. Very professionally run, our diving operation is the safest, yet most exciting possible.

Your dive package treats you to three boat-dives per day, one night boat-dive per week, unlimited shore diving and snorkeling – directly in front of the Reef House Resort is what some guests have described as the best snorkeling they have ever encountered. Also included is all your meals -- which by the way can be individually adjusted to suit your exact dietary needs -- accommodations, weight belts, unlimited tank-air for diving, and all the fresh, purified drinking water you desire… all included in your package. Airport pick up and return is also included with the 7 night package.

The only items not included are beverages from the bar, Honduran hotel taxes of 16%, equipment rentals, extra activities such as island excursions, and your airfare. The Island of Roatan has its own International Airport and direct flights are available from Houston, Miami, Atlanta, Newark, and during the winter, Toronto. We’ll meet you at the airport and take care of everything from there.

Great for the diving

My sister and I just returned from a week at the Reef House Resort in Roatan, Honduras. The trip exceeded my expectations. I must caution -- this is not the West End. The resort is located on a small key (cay?) that is only accessible by boat. The focus of trips here are basically – Eat, Sleep, Dive (not necessarily in that order). Partying/nightlife is not one of the purposes.

Getting There:
Convenient! Fly into Roatan (usually Saturday or Sunday from the US). Someone is there to meet you at the airport and help collect your bags. Transportation to/from the airport is included.

Accommodations:
Comfortable! There are only 12 or so rooms, each has two queen-sized beds, a flat screen TV with cable, A/C, hot private shower, and all the fresh drinking water you can consume. You can also refill your bottles with drinking water from a cooler in the main lodge. Free wi-fi is available in the rooms and lodge area.

Food:
Incredible! Three home-cooked meals, served on individual plates (no buffet). Each meal had home-made bread or tortillas and dinner included dessert (also home-made). After the third dive, fresh cookies or sweet rolls were available. Everything was fresh, wonderful, filling, and just downright DELICIOUS!

Juice and Iced Tea are provided with every meal. Alcohol and soft drinks are not included in the price (beer $2, sodas $1). The bar is an on-your-honor system. You can also bring your own alcohol or drinks.

Stayed May 2011, travelled with family
