We stayed at Posada Arco Iris in mid-Feb, and we arrived in the middle of that crazy stint of heavy rain. Our first three days, non-stop downpours. Luckily, we had a great room that was clean, roomy, and had a nice private bathroom and a small kitchen. It was just perfect. We were towards the back of the property, so... More

Stayed at the Arco Iris one night until I found a better option. It is reasonably priced for a 2 bedded room, but there are better value options. Air con and kitchenettes cost extra. There is no TV if you want that. Location is quite good and not far from dive shops and a grocery store. They had a nice... More

I love the location and the feel of the place, but the roof was leaking in at least two of the rooms. It felt like we were in a tree house which I loved and the rooms had great hard wood floors and exposed wood rafter ceilings.

Hi Mike Sorry for all the inconvenience and thank you for letting us know, since we haven't had such a heavy rain in a while we didn't know that there is a big problem with the roof. We have been working on fixing it and in 2 days time will be done and make sure that the leeks will not... More

The room was a great value. There were some electrical issues. The location was great. The only major issue was the sand fleas, which the office insisted were flies. I was covered in bites about 20 minutes after entering the water. Day #2 I used coconut oil and didn't have as much of an issue with them.

We had a really great stay at Posada Arco Iris. We had never been to Roatan before, so I was relying on Trip Advisor's reviews alone for deciding where to stay. I had been trying to decide between Land's End, Coco Lobo, the Beach House, Mame Tree, and Posada Arco Iris. In the end we went with PAI due to... More

If you plan to do several activities outside all day, like diving, snorkeling, etc., this is a great hotel. Prices are accessible and it is located in a strategic place in West end, near enough of the shops and restaurants, but far enough for not be disturbed by night activity noise.

This place is in a great location and perfect if you are on a budget. We had the upstairs room with a/c, and a little kitchenette. There were 2 beds and this was perfect for me and my best friend.

We stayed in this property for 6 nights. Our general opinion is that it's definitely not worth your money. There are many options in Roatan, so we suggest you not choose for this one, even though it's recommended by the Lonely Planet (Definitely not worth it!!!) - When we arrived at the hotel the manager looked too busy to help...
