For a complete review visit the Roatan forums page on Trip Advisor or Mangrove Dock Facebook page as VRBO doesn't allow enough space. We were met at the airport by Peter & Susie (their spanish water dog, very friendly), loaded up our suitcases, a quick stop for groceries, a 20 minute informative drive to the condo, Peter ran through everything in the condo with us and within 2 hours of landing we were at the beach enjoying the sunshine with drink in hand.
While we didn’t need all the space or the 3 bedrooms in the condo this quick trip it was great to be able to get a handle on what to expect for next year as we had already rented for the month of Feb 2015. There is loads of room in the condo (just like the pictures) so you won’t be one on top of the other & the kitchen really does have everything you think you’ll need plus more. There are bath towels / beach towels, hand soap & body wash already supplied so don’t waste packing space on these items. We did purchased some miscellaneous items like paper towels & toilet paper on our grocery stop but never needed them as from previous renters there was some already there, so they were left for the next people. We found many different spices in the pantry (left from previous renters) that came in handy and made sure we left a few things for the next person also. The grounds, pool & sundeck were quite in fact only once in our week was there another couple in the pool or on the sundeck with us. We loved sitting on our private balcony for morning coffee and watching the sunrise.
We switched to island time right from the start of our vacation so for us the slow walk to the beach was 7 minutes. Usually we went out in the am came back mid/late afternoon had a swim, relaxed and then went back out for dinner or just to sit at a local bar for a few hours. Book it we're sure you'll love it like we did. Glenn & Mary Jane Sudbury On
