|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Green Bamboo Cabana is located at the far end of West End in the quieter, more residential section. It is perfect for the budget traveler. It includes a queen-sized bed, a small gas stove and fridge, a water heater for hot showers and a brand new mini-split air conditioning unit to help you cool down on those warm evenings while you watch our television. The Green Bamboo complex is fenced in and surrounded by tropical vegetation, making you feel like you are in a secluded tropical paradise.
In the outside, shared area of Green Bamboo, you have the use of the lounge area with comfy chairs and a BBQ. There is also a pool for you to relax in. There is a daytime and nighttime watchie, so you will always feel safe and secure. Conviently, you are a short 3 minute walk to the ocean, where you can go swimming, snorkeling, or whatever else is your favorite water activity.
West End is a great area of Roatan - if you have never been you must come and see for yourself! Everything you need is right at your fingertips: shops, restaurants, bars, and tons of water activities.
The little cabain is great for one or two (couple), it has the basic amenities for a short term stay, one bed, private bathroom, AC, little kitchen, and its inside a gated area with its own pool and very close to the beach. It was clean and very nice when I got there. When I got to Roatan, I had to visit the real state agent to get the keys and the basic information, a $500 deposit needs to be freezed in a credit card as a warranty for any damage or you can pay non-refundable $59 insurance just in case, I think this information can be included in the booking stage because I knew this at the arrival moment. In general the place is very nice, secure, friendly environment, the location is a little far from west end main street, 5-10 min walking distance for mini markets, etc.
The Green Bamboo was small but clean. Really only enough space for one person, not 2. I was a little disappointed there wasn't a sink in the bathroom. Had to brush my teeth in the "kitchen". I felt like I was on an episode of HGTV Tiny Houses. The studio is very close to the road and was very noisy in the early morning. Heard everything from the garbage truck to passing cars to the roosters. You can hear anyone outside like they are on your porch but they could be out at the pool. Just sounds really close. The hot water was hit or miss and the shower handles are opposite of what they say (hot is cold and cold is hot). The pool was very nice. There was a 24 hour security guard which was nice but he seemed to always be by the pool on his phone. There was construction going on at the property building a new house which was pretty noisy during the day. Wasn't exactly a tranquil relaxing spot. I was happy to have my friends staying on the same property at a different house because it allowed me access to some of their common living space since the Green Bamboo has literally none. Was a little bit further away from the activities on the main road in West End than I thought. Had fun diving with West End divers. It served my purposes for the trip but I would not stay there again knowing the location, noise and the size of the place.
Nous avons passer une très belle semaine au Green Bamboo Cabana. Nous sommes arrivé le 18 janvier 2016 pour 8 jours et nous avons adoré notre séjour à Roatan. Le green bamboo cabana à respecter nos attentes. Une belle petite cabane propre pour moi et ma copine , une cuisine fonctionnelle avec salle de bain , une piscine creusé bien entretenue et une belle place pour relaxer et se faire un barbecue ….Le gardien de sécurité à été exceptionnelle , toujours quelqu'un sur place pour surveiller. Les seuls petits points négatif mais qui sont mineur est que la route en face de notre cabane qui mène à West end n'est pas terminer et nous avons eu les même serviettes de bain pour la semaine. Si vous devez rester plus que 8 jours je crois que vous pouvez demander à avoir d'autres serviettes. Pour le reste tout était super. Je recommande fortement !!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cabana. The pictures are exactly what you get although the bed is actually bigger than it looks in the picture. The Cabana is small but had everything we needed and because there was so much space outside to use, the size just didn't matter. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed meeting the other people staying in the compound. Everybody we met in Roatan - both locals & visitors were very friendly. Might have something to do with the locale.
This compound is ideally located very near the beach and town. We walked easily to everywhere we wanted to go except the short and very inexpensive water taxi to West Bay for a day on that beach.
Our favorite bar in town was Toucan which has a great happy hour and a TV that shows North American Sports. It doesn't serve food but the small restaurant next door is very inexpensive, delicious food and will deliver your order to the bar. Down the walkway to the beach is Ronny's Barefeet Bar. Their food is also very good , the sunsets are Awesome and they have a fire on the beach every night, which is usually still going in the morning.
We hope to be able to come back soon.
My sister and I stayed at the Cabana for one week. It exceeded our expectations in every way! It was immaculate inside and out. The cabana has a great little hammock chair for hanging out on the front porch. The studio was equipped with everything you could imagine needing. It has a little refrigerator, that came stocked with cold beer, a blender, coffee maker (and coffee), cooking utensils, and a portable cooler to take to the beach. There were drawers for clothes and a hanging rack. The little bathroom is stocked with towels and shampoo/conditioner/soap. The shower head was awesome! Everything is decorated very tastefully. The property was really well maintained, with beautiful landscaping, lush and tropical. The pool was the perfect size and temperature to be a refreshing break from the heat. There is an outdoor grill and lots of outdoor furniture to lounge around with a cold drink. There is a guard on the property 24/7, and the day guard is very friendly and helpful, great to have around.
The property management company arranged transportation to and from the airport for a $25 fee and were available to answer questions during our stay. They even equipped us with a cell phone while we were there! It is just a 3 minute walk to the beach, where you can rent paddle boards and arrange other activities, like boat tours for fishing and snorkeling. It's just about a 5 minute walk to the main strip of West End. It was all very convenient, which is a huge perk on vacation.
The Green Bamboo Cabana was a quiet and tranquil retreat from the business of the neighborhood and the heat. It was a perfect vacation get away. We fell in love with the Cabana and Roatan!
