Buena Vista

Buena Vista is both a destination and a promise.

An architecturally-designed, purpose-built vacation rental property on the Caribbean island of Roatan.  

The multi-tiered structure cascades down a gentle hillside to meet the sea. Expansive views of the Caribbean greet you from every vantage point and the Meso-American coral reef is laid out like a map at your feet.  

The taste of salt air and gentle touch of the tradewinds makes you feel transported to an exotic place.  The Buena Vista hospitality makes you feel right at home.  

Buena Vista.  It is indeed a good view.

The Guest Experience

Sondra, Pedro and Patty’s vision for Buena Vista is to create an unforgettable vacation experience for their guests.   A safe, clean and aesthetically pleasing home-base from which they can experience Roatan and all her natural beauty.  

Upon arrival to Buena Vista guests will realise they are somewhere very special.   The physical space serves to greatly enhance the guest experience. An exclusive location with direct beach frontage and unparalleled access to the reef.   Sweeping views of the sea from every vantage point.  Architecturally designed living space and countless tiny details – from top-quality building materials to a consistent commitment to design aesthetics.   

Combined with the exceptional hospitality of Sondra, Pedro and their team – their passion for the island, wealth of local knowledge, naturally warm hospitality and willingness to go the extra mile for their guests – the recipe is created for a truly magical immersive experience. 


Infinity Pool

From the Buena Vista infinity pool, situated at the top of the property, you will enjoy sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and the Meso-America reef.

Semi-Private Beach

Buena Vista guests have direct access to a white-sand beach which is shared by a small number of private homes and boutique hotels.

Palapa & Outdoor Dining

Adjacent to the infinity pool at the top of the property is a spacious thatched palapa throwing shade (the good kind) on the communal grill and al fresco dining area.

Location & Accessibility

Buena Vista is located on the western-most tip of Roatan between the desirable tourist zones of West Bay and West End.  Situated on a hillside and cascading down to a semi-private white-sand beach, the orientation offers an idyllic combination of  elevation and direct beach access.  The beach-frontage is shared by a small number of boutique hotels and private homes and is beautifully maintained. The barrier reef is easily accessed by snorkeling or paddling from shore.   Buena Vista is nestled in a small, quiet neighborhood and guests can enjoy the community vibe or absolute privacy, as they wish.

What our guests are saying about Buena Vista

This place is absolutely amazing. Beautiful view and amazing hospitality. The rooms are modern with all the comforts of a home away from home. If you are looking for a quiet place that is close to west end and west bay look no further.

The hosts were so generous with their time, always pointing out various creatures to my daughter - the iguanas, the hummingbirds and macaws; they also attended to every need such as helping arrange for groceries - we just can't say enough positive things about our stay!

We loved our stay at Buena Vista and we loved Roatan! The rooms had everything we needed and the view from the balconies was outstanding! Beds were comfy and the washer and dryer was a plus. Sondra and Pedro were very welcoming and provided us with lots of info about how to get around the island and tips on groceries and dining options. We liked the location- not too busy and within walking distance to restaurants. Would visit again and stay at this location- great dive sites also!

If you've never been to Roatan, pack your bags! This is a new resort located in a perfect place to enjoy the island. The owners will take awesome care of you and your located right between West End and West Bay. Beautiful views of the sunsets and you can hear the sound of the ocean waves while your sleeping. Perfect for diving or snorkeling. The infinity pool is stunning. Great place for your best vacation and I'm sure you will want to return. Great place with great people.
