About The Owner

Diana & Michael are the owners of 'Casa Playa Bonita'.

They visited Roatan several times throughout the years and fell in love with the beautiful beach, aqua waters and warm people.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Emerald Beach Club

This property is located on what an international magazine called one of the 'Top Ten Beaches in the World'. With a coral reef surrounding the entire island and relatively close to shore in West Bay it can be explored at your leisure.

It is one of the most beautiful places that we have ever seen. If you have not experienced the island it is a must see location. Safe, secure, democratic country filled with friendly people in an idyllic setting.

The Best Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 24 nights and loved that it was steps away from the private beach area and all the bars, restaurants and beach activities but also loved that when you were in the beautiful tropical yard that you felt a million miles away from all the beach action and venders. Rodger the gardener is a very wonderful and helpful person and is one of the best assets of the house. We had no complaints except for the sand fleas but we would love to go back.

Welcome to Roatan

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 weeks at this wonderful beach getaway. I can't say enough how wonderful this clean and beautifully decorated Playa Bonita is. Thank you Diana and Michael for your hospitality. The yard/garden is racked every day by the care take Roger, he greets you every morning with his happy and kind smile. The location is superb, it can't be beat. You can walk to everything. And when your on your patio its so private, yet only steps to the wonderful beach of West Bay. Playa Bonita is awesome!!!

Nice Location. Studio a bit iffy...

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the combined one BR and Studio for a week. The stay was good, but it required 3 days to remove a moldy smell from the Studio before we could occupy it. Rental agent worked hard to be sure all was corrected. The One BR was a bit musty at first, but cleared out soon. We also wished for an outdoor grill.

Likely will choose other rentals for future stays.

We're coming back

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our one month stay so much we booked another month in 2015. The unit is great, the location can't be beat and Roatan is wonderful.

The one thing keeping it from being perfect is that you can't cook when thepwer goes out (the stove is electric). We lost power 19 times during our stay and several times we couldn't cook, or finish cooking, because the power went out. The neighbors used their outdoor grilles, but Playa Bonita doesn't have one.

So be it, you can't have everything in paradise.

Playa Bonita: A Stone's Throw from West Bay Beach!

  • 4 of 5

The beauty of Playa Bonita is its location to the beautiful beach in West Bay.

We rented the one bedroom master suite with its expansive picture windows and large

outdoor patio. Within 2 minutes you leave the hustle and bustle of the gorgeous sand

beach and turquoise water to enter your own private space. We loved our stay here!

The unit is clean with updated stainless appliances and a nice indoor living space. Both bedroom and living / kitchen area have great air conditioning. My only reservation is that the bed needs to be replaced with one more comfortable. I know it all boils down to personal taste but we found it too soft. We particularly enjoyed the private beach area, a nice retreat from the busy beach. The restaurants and bars are close by as well as excellent snorkeling right off the beach. You can't go wrong staying at Playa Bonita!

Owner's Response: Hi Paul. Thanks for the review and comments. In response to your suggestion we have replaced the queen sized mattress and box spring in the Master unit with a brand new King Coil Spine Support model!
