We had an amazing time staying at La Diosa. The house is beautiful, true to the photos, and perfect for our two families with two master bedrooms and two other rooms for the kids. We ended up using available aerobeds for one of the kids since it was a little warm to share the bed for the teens and we were being frugal with the AC. We were happy we rented a car since it seems it would have been hard to get around without one, but I loved being on the less touristy side of the island and nothing was a very far drive. Liz, the property manager, met us at the airport and was available to answer any questions. And Clay(and Debra) who live on the property checked in daily and had lots of info to share-he helped us set up the best day of snorkeling and island hopping with someone he knew from a nearby town. Wifi went out one night after a thunderstorm and was out on the island(it seemed) and was generally slow in the hours we were all trying to use it(we did have 4 teenagers in our group.) Overall it was a lovely stay- I would definitely recommend!
My husband and I spent 10 amazing days at La Diosa Del Sol. It exceeded our expectations. The grounds were beautiful, the views were spectacular, and the house had everything we needed and more. The owner, Adrienne, was very easy to communicate with. Liz, the property manager, picked us up, took us shopping, and gave us lots of suggestions on the island. The caretaker, Clay, was checking on us every day and made sure the pool was always sparkling. We really appreciated all the personal touches done for us. There were fresh flowers throughout the house when we arrived, there was a huge basket of fruit waiting for us, and Adrienne was so kind to gift my husband and I an anniversary dinner with Rosa, the fabulous cook. We honestly felt very spoiled. We enjoyed scuba diving with the nearby diving company. They actually picked us up at La Diosa's private dock every time. Our stay couldn't have been any better. We would certainly recommend this home to all our friends and family.
We spent 7 nights at La Diosa during our recent family vacation to Roatan.
Liz, the property manager, met us at the airport just after our plane landed. From there, we followed her to Snappers, the local fish market, where we picked up some nice fish for dinner and then to Eldon's for a weeks supply of groceries, beer & wine. After loading up our vehicles, we then made our way to the villa.
Liz gave us a quick tour of the villa, answered our questions and introduced us to Austin who looks after the property. Liz was great and attended to all our needs during our stay. We also had Rosa cook a couple of island meals for us and we thoroughly enjoyed her cooking.
La Diosa is located on a hill which provides spectacular views of both the property and the Caribbean Sea. It is also quite secluded and peaceful, away from the hustle & bustle from where the cruise ships come in.
The villa is very spacious and clean, with more than enough room for 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The kitchen is well equipped and the villa itself is very comfortable. We ate our breakfasts and lunches on the second floor balcony while enjoying the spectacular views.
The teenagers spent a lot of time in the pool as well as exploring the beach and bay in the sea kayaks.
As we were warned, the mosquitos do come out at dusk and the sand fleas are quite active at the beach if you don't apply bug spray.
Our only complaint is that the property has a northern exposure and at this time of year only the pool gets sun during the day, leaving the pool area and loungers in the shade.
Roatan is a beautiful island and La Diosa is a beautiful property. We would definitely consider returning La Diosa at some point in time and would highly recommend it!
We are delighted that you enjoyed the villa and all its amenities - please think of La Diosa as your home away from home on Roatan.
Pros and Cons
Pros: I was amazed that the house was practically insect free. I only saw one small spider (under my pillow) and of course the normal kitchen ants. The bath and pool towels were plentiful and of high quality. The pool is beautiful (except missing tiles), large, very warm and has some great pool loungers. The view from the house can’t be beat. WOW! It is gorgeous. It was very nice having the kayaks. We took the double kayak out every morning. Jorge the caretaker was always willing to assist with the kayaks. The kitchen was well equipped and it was wonderful having a washer and dryer available.
Cons: Getting into bed I noticed that the sheets had sand in them. I alerted the property manager who dismissed my concern and did not offer clean sheets or assistance. Then we noticed that the bathroom counters were covered in sand/grit. All I had to do was wipe my hand across the counter and my hand was filthy. The bathroom sinks and mirrors looked like they had not been cleaned in a long time. There was even toothpaste left from previous guests stuck to the sinks. The living room couch was also covered in sand/grit and we had to place towels on the cushions to be able to sit on it. The DVD player did not work and the wifi was unreliable. The pool light did not work and my husband stepped on a metal object in the bottom of the pool that stuck in his big toe. There were dogs that roam the property and jumped on us when we got out of the car every day. Once my husband was asleep on the hammock and a dog jumped up on him. I wanted to swim from the nice beach area, but there was garbage laying in the sand in the water and it did not look inviting. The area around the house does not provide peace and quiet. Some construction was occurring nearby and all day long we heard saws, hammers and generators. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday there is LOUD music from noon until 2:00 AM coming from some area close by. The only way to block it out while sleeping is to keep all doors and windows closed and run the air conditioner. Jorge the caretaker was quite intrusive. He would appear without warning at the pool area while we were laying out or swimming. He even entered the house one morning without knocking. It was unnerving wondering when he was going to show up and if we were going to have privacy or not. I would have been nice to have been left alone. I think this would be a wonderful rental with improvements in the property manager’s and caretaker ‘s roles.
Dear Ms. H,
We very much appreciate your sharing your views with us about La Diosa. We love that you enjoyed our gourmet kitchen, our plush beach and bath towels, our ocean kayaks, the spectacular views, and the beautiful infinity pool looking over the Caribbean. We are glad you found the property virtually insect free – we do work very hard to make sure everything is raked every day and carefully attended to.
Just as much, as I have expressed personally to you, we appreciate your bringing to our attention some matters that needed attending to, and we want to assure you they are as much concern to us as they were to you. Although we have never had an issue with the condition of the bedrooms in the past 10 years, we have instituted changes as a result of your comments. Our property manager now makes an even more meticulous and thorough inspection of the cleanliness of the house prior to a guest’s arrival, including using a flashlight to detect any missed items, and our caretaker now makes twice daily inspections of the beach area to pick up any debris that may have appeared. We now ask our property manager to establish with our guests how much or little interaction would be satisfactory with our caretaker, and we remind guests to please close windows when they are out and about because the tropical rainstorms that can suddenly appear otherwise require the caretaker coming and closing the windows. We appreciate your letting us know that the pool light was out, and learning that the new DVD player had failed - we now stock an extra one. We now also encourage our guests to let us know at the time if anything goes amiss so we can attend to it immediately. I am sorry that there was construction on a property down the road during your stay. There is sometimes music on weekends that can carry over from Punta Gorda, 2 miles away, and we now alert guests to that fact. These helpful and honest comments have motivated us to make La Diosa even better and we have taken specific steps to address your concerns. We enjoyed having your family as our guests and would be delighted to have you again on your next trip to beautiful Roatan.
Tout simplement exceptionnel (Simply Exceptional!)
With our 4 children, we came from France to visit Roatan. La Diosa was THE place to stay and we had a marvelous time there : the house and the garden are really wonderful, well equiped, with everything you might dream. The beach is near, and with the kayacks, you're able to snorkel on the beautiful reef in a few moments. Humming birds can be seen while you're taking your shower in the open air. The view is breathtaking.
Beeing located on the east part of Roatan is really an advantage : this part of the island is more authentic, but in less than an hour you can access, if you want, the more touristical places in the island. Not far from the house, beautiful beaches, wonderful dives with "subway water sport" that pick you up right from the dock at La Diosa. Punta Gorda with its Garifuna joyful feats and dances is very near...
And what made our stay really remarkable was the presence of Jorge. He is perfect in his role as caretaker : helpul, efficient, hardworker, always available but never intrusive. And we found he goes far beyond his duty, in the good sense : friendly, giving good advices, taking care of our security in every aspect, always ready to talk about Honduras and Roatan, showing our kids how to cook a traditional recipe. After a few days, though he was always discrete, we had the impression of being at home with a friend nearby.
Jorge is really precious and added greatly to the quality of our stay in La Diosa…
The best summary comes from our kids "when do we come back ?". And though it's very far from France, no doubt we also dream of it!
PS : if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, don't hesitate to go far east, on the dirt road, to "La Sirena" restaurant : the view and the beach are amazing, and you've got the feeling of being at the edge of the world. Their fishes are delicious.
We are so delighted that your family had a wonderful time at La Diosa. How wonderful that you enjoyed the many hidden treasures of the island while you were here and explored the Island's east end with its special rhythms of life. We were so happy to have you and please think of La Diosa as your home on Roatan.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! The house and property are even more beautiful than the photos let on! The house and pool area were lovely, as was the view, and the location was perfect for us. The area was quiet and set back off the main roads, and the beachfront was a minute walk away.
Liz, the property manager, was gracious and extremely helpful in coordinating our stay, making herself easily available to answer questions we had. Jorge, the groundskeeper, went above and beyond to make our time comfortable and fun. We really can't recommend this place enough!
Dear Trey, we are so happy that you and your spouse had a perfect honeymoon at La Diosa. Please think of us as your home any from home on Roqtqn- we hope we will see you again soon!
