The rooms are nice enough, they have a small fridge, AC, the bathroom is alright but the water pressure isn't very good in the shower. There are balconies with chairs and hammocks out the front where it is nice to just sit and relax. There is a little beach area with deck chairs out the front, lots of shade. The location is fantastic, on the edge of West End so close to all the restaurants and dive shops. Right on a beautiful part of the bay and reef.
Unfortunately, the wifi does not extend to the rooms and is a little sporadic. Also there is no breakfast included.

... in sweltering heat.... Living in the tropics has a lot of upsides however the night time heat without a fan is not something we look forward to. Waking up to a sweaty head multiple times throughout the night is most certainly not ideal. Unfortunately both Matt and I were working the following day and so couldn't get power and needed to delegate the job to Lauren... Lauren then went too late and put us on a roller coaster ...
... can be so sweet, the price on the island was about double e.g. pineapple went from L30 (R16) to L60 (R32) and watermelon from L30 (R16) to L80 (R45), but we still ate a pineapple almost every day.
DIVING: Diving at Native Sons Dive Center $35 (R424), reduced to $30 (R364) per dive dive if you stay at Chillies, because we did some dives with them we borrowed fins from Native Sons for snorkelling every day. Many dive shops have discount deals with dive shops on the island.
... last.... I'm not even angry, I'm impressed. Anzac Day came about and took me to skid row to watch the Essendon vs Collingwood afl clash.. Unfortunately TV's were limited and I was unable to watch the entire event but apparently that was for the best. Although we are very behind schedule a dawn dive is organised for Thursday morning which was meant to be for the Anzacs. This however clashes awfully nicely with my ...
... it or not, we could not find any decent postcards! So, those of you who get postcards from us you won't be receiving any from this trip!
Back on board, we get cleaned up for real and relax on our wonderful balcony. The ship leaves Roatan at 5:30 and at 5:45 we go down to the Explorer's Lounge to meet up with Ann and to attend an art history lecture. The lecture, "The Evolution of Art" was good and interesting. I wish I could remember more of ...
... baleados, these can be filled with cheese, meat, egg and quess what, beans! Very tasty and filling. When I spoke to a local, he sent me to a shack, away from the tourists where the locals go. Had 3 baleados and a carton of orange juice for £2.30. A steak at a restaurant £15 -£30 (not inc tax)
The sea was a bit rough today with the water full of seaweed, so swimming and snorkeling was not ...
