“Great place just a few steps from beach”
Reviewed December 17, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great place just off the beach but not to far as to be a problem going back to the room to pick something up you might have forgot. Semi-private with gated area entrance to the 6 or 7 houses that are on the property. The Studio is downstairs from the Monkey La La so expect some upstairs noise but its not too much. Room had fridge and kitchenette along with fresh water, beach towels, and sattlelite TV. Great little getaway for a couple looking to save a bit. Area provides beach chairs for all those on property and you ware within walking distance to snorkeling just off the beach and a number of restaurants along the mile or so beach. Only annoyance is the locals constant barrage of trying to sell shirts, massages, shells, trips etc. Most are OK but a few were a bit annoying.

“Charming bungalow a breath away from West Bay Beach”

They say it's location location location. During my most recent winter getaway to Roatan (my 5th in 2 years), my favorite tropical paradise, I tried out a West Bay vacation rental instead of my usual resort destination. No regrets, coyote. The space was quite suitable for my purposes and while initially a little overwhelmed by how small a space it was to share with someone else, it grew on me over the week I was there. Nice quiet neighbors, a 10 second walk to the beach and nestled right in the heart of West Bay, a great place to vacation. The rental company was helpful, organized and I would absolutely use them again.

“Monkey La La Studio disappointing”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves at West Bay Village. The location is great, the beach wonderful, proximity to diving is good and feeling of being part of a "community" is unique. MLL Studio is the former ground floor office of the property management company that was converted into a studio apartment. Maid service is included once per week and bottled water also included. Free Wifi is provided. The bed was comfortable. When we checked in we got a bouquet of fresh flowers and welcome supplies including coffee, milk, bread, eggs, beer, etc, which was a nice touch.

Unfortunately Monkey La La Studio has a number of drawbacks:
- MLL studio has a generally rundown feel to it. Floor tiles are stained, louver windows are coming apart making them difficult to close, walls are scuffed, furnishings are old and thrown together
- the bathroom towels were old and worn (beach towels were fine)
- the gas oven and burners (which are lit by matches) have limited heat control making it difficult to cook properly
- the frying pans are dented and with non-stick finish missing, there is no baking sheet to warm things in the oven
- utensils are fine, but plates and dishes are mismatched
- only one electrical receptacle in kitchen - always unplugging microwave to make toast, etc
- the kitchen window faces into a maintenance room with hot water heater
- the shower stall is very small and has low water pressure
- air circulation is not good, even with all windows open making it hard to sleep
- the freezer frosts up quickly and rains water on the contents of the fridge
- lack of natural light makes the studio a dark place to be (we called it "the cave")
- there was no comfortable place to sit and watch tv because the tv is on top of the fridge
- the outside patio is unappealing with tired landscaping, unusable hammock and old kitchen table and chairs
- eaves troughs overflowed when it rained causing water to cascade down right outside the bedroom window
- large crack under the door allows crawling insects in, we did have a few cockroaches
- cobwebs in the corners were appreciated for catching mosqitoes in the room
- howling feral cat kept us awake many nights

But, given the price I guess we shouldn't complain too much. It just felt like staying in an old cabin more than staying in a vacation home. Thank goodness for the loungers at the beach where we spent many hours relaxing. We really appreciated the security guards, maintenance man and housekeeper.The property management company (Brad, Ruth and Sam) were helpful and responsive. We made a number of suggestions for improvement which hopefully will be acted on.
