This is a fully furnished two bedroom, 2 bath luxury penthouse with breathtaking ocean views! You get all of this for what others pay for a single room at this very same location. Why? Because your are our own personal guest! This is our home. When you are not here, we are. Our super low rate includes full enjoyment of our penthouse and the pool in our building. We can help you arrange for your transportation from the airport or the ferry but you must pay for these separately.
This resort was rated second best in Honduras by TripAdvisor in 2013. That same source rated Roatan as the third best island in the world for vacationers! According to them, you have many options when planning a trip to the Caribbean but "nowhere could be more promising as on the beautiful island of Roatan." On the premises you can enjoy Herby's, an amazing sports bar. You can also enjoy fine dining at the La Piña restaurant where Black Angus steaks and fresh seafood are the rule. As for our location, our friends at TA say: "centrally located to allow guests to enjoy the entire island."
Yes historical Jonesville, Port Royal and Oakridge should be a part of your visit. However, what you really want to know more about are the beaches. Here they are from the closest to the farthest:
Little French Key, LFK: 5 minutes driving or on a cab
This is the number one ranked attraction by TripAdvisor for Roatan. The place has a zoo, a shore side restaurant where you board the ferry and a restaurant at the key. They have several beaches so that you do not feel overcrowded. You can actually have a meal in the water as they have tables right where you are swimming. Getting there costs $20 per person.
French Key: 5 minutes driving or on a cab
These facilities are a bit more basic but you can usually travel at no cost on their ferry if you offer to consume their food and beverages.
Both of these locations offer snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking.
Parrot Tree: 10 minutes car or cab
They have a beautiful saltwater lagoon with pristine waters. They have a great bar and restaurant.
Paya Bay: 20 minutes car or cab
Very much worth visiting! You will be practically alone at a natural white sand beach. Coral reefs are close by and great for snorkeling. The resort is family owned and you can have some great home cooking at their restaurant.
West Bay beach: one hour car or cab:
We recommend going directly to Grand Roatan Resort. This is a luxurious place which actually allows you to use their facilities as long as you consume food and beverages - at very reasonable prices I might add. They are located right on the NINTH best beach in the world and the BEST beach in Central America. Worth a visit at least once during your stay.
Our penthouse is on the fourth floor of the Clarion Suites in historic French Harbor. There is no minimum stay, except for peak season. Enjoy our spectacular ocean views from the dining room, living room, and the spacious porch. The unit is fully furnished: vaulted ceilings, reclining mahogany/leather couches, stainless steel appliances with barbecue grill. Central air conditioning, 43 inch. flat screen with surround sound. With our pillow top beds, you will not want to get out of bed! We also have world class amenities on the premises: spa, swimming pool with waterfall. We are a chip and a putt away from Pristine Bay Golf Club and Resort. Roatan is world famous for scuba diving and snorkeling. The beaches are beautiful and the island folks are very hospitable. Handicrafts, great food and people watching are at their best in West End. White sand beaches are the rule. Superb seafood is available at Gio's. Nature trails, canopy tours and dolphin encounters can all be arranged. Again, we quote our friends at TripAdvisor: "If you want a firsthand experience of Roatan’s rich, authentic culture, [take] a walk around some of the places on the island such as Oakridge, Port Royal and Jonesville." All of these are close to our French Harbor location. The island is bigger than it looks!
We strongly suggest that you rent a car. We have a special arrangement with Econo Rent a Car so let us know well in advance so that we can help you get the best deal available!
We have sooo many recommendations. Please go ahead and book and we will share more tips to make sure that you make the most of this unique destination.
¡Abrazos from Analia and Elias!
Analia and I work hard and we don't get to play as much as we want. That is why we share our beautiful property with you. I run, swim, ride my bicycle and play guitar. Analia is an accomplished singer and plays the guitar and the piano. She is also a gifted painter! Our work keeps us landlocked on the Honduran mainland. However, whenever we get a chance, we take the ferry and change worlds. Roatan is a Caribbean paradise. Its people are enchanting and the tropical mix between turquoise waters, white sand beaches and lush mountains is just what we need to recharge. The seafood is unmatched for freshness - go to Gio's at least once during your visit.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
Clarion Suites is the first branded property on Roatan. The developers got it right from the beginning with all of the amenities and efficient support service 24/7. The steak house is all Angus beef, and fresh seafood. The sport's bar is probably better than the one you hang out at stateside with 32 big screen LEDs. The compound is located close to some of the best beaches on the island. Eldon's supermarket is 600 steps away and has everything you could possibly want for quality wines, liquor, cooking and cleaning. I particularly love the fresh squeezed orange juice and buy it by the gallon. The Bulk Gourmet is down the road toward the airport about 5 kilometers. You can buy your own steaks and breakfast meats to prepare them on our 72,000 btu barbecue grill. If you prefer fish and seafood, Snappers is only three minutes away with fish that you are familiar with and many more that you never heard of! They are all tasty , of course. The shrimp, lobster and King Crab are always fresh. Back to your penthouse: the ocean views are great from the living room, the dining room and the porch. The swimming pool in our building is the longest - great for laps. It also has a marvelous waterfall for body massages. The gym is well equipped and you can pay a fee for a day or a week. The spa will be happy to rejuvenate you by appointment. If you need help planning your activities on the island let us know.
Our balcony is our reunion point. The waterfall in the pool below us and the Caribbean Sea in front make us feel relaxed and care free. We can help you carve out the details of your special vacation.
A very important detail about our property: the management and staff- you are on a property that is extremely well managed. The developers live here. The gardens are lush and well manicured. The islanders are very friendly. If you have any questions about an island attraction just ask and they will always assist you. This location puts both ends of the island within easy reach. Roatan is a lot bigger than you think!
Located in French Harbour, the Clarion Suites is about mid-way on the island. This is an optimal location for exploring the whole island, from West Bay to Camp Bay. We highly recommend that you rent a car because it is very easy to get around the island with many attractions within a short distance from the main road.

This trip to Roatan was a little different than a typical vacation. We definitely wanted to relax and have some fun, but our main focus was to determine if this was the right location for a future second home. This condo was a great location for both.
From the vacation point of view...
- Pineapple Villas is in the middle of the island. It's not far to West Bay, West End, and all of the fun of the tourist areas.
- It's also not far from the less known, but also very interesting and beautiful eastern half of the island.
- It is a safe and secure gated resort with very nice pools and good restaurants.
- A modern fully-stocked grocery store is close by for anything you need.
- Small pulperias run by locals are also nearby, offering fresh local produce at low prices.
- The local fish market is within a few miles. You won't believe the prices on fresh seafood versus what is avsilable in the US.
- French Harbor has a great mix of local culture, full-time expats, and vacationers. You're not just surrounded by North Americans.
- With a full kitchen, we loved cooking fresh local ingredients while enjoying the comforts of home.
From a home-shopping point of view...
- Pineapple Villas' location in the middle of the island gave us easy access to any property we wanted to tour.
- This condo gave us a good feel for actually living on the island versus just vacationing.
- Being close to other expats gave us the opportunity to hear their stories of why they chose Roatan for their current or second homes.
The condo was very clean on arrival. The owners were easy to work with. The large deck was perfect for eating outside as well as relaxing. We recommend this condo for couples, families, or multiple couples who are interested in traveling to Roatan..
Wonderful place to stay. The best of Roatan. Will come back every year.
great place, a good view of the ocean. Penthouse comes with an equipped kitchen, dining room and a living room. Overall it was a good experience for me and my family. We definetly come back!!
Owner: MR. Elias Lizardo well educated and extremely helpful.
Security: the apartment complex is well secure. My forgot to close the penthouse few times and nothing was stolen.
Recreation: pools, spa, gym, restaurant and things to do in the apartment complex are class A facilities. I highly recommend the restaurant the lobster and steak was exquisite!!! The gym is well equip for crossfit routines and regular weight room routines. The spa is great as well. The main pool is good but the water is a little bit cold. I preferred the pool located on the penthouse because the water is kept warmer with the heater.
Penthouse: very spacious, well maintained. My mother in-law and my family of five stayed without a problem in the apartment.
Everything in the penthouse is good to go. Karla cleaned the apartment and ensured everything was A Ok when we got there and when we checkout.
Wish for next stay. I would love to have a BBQ grill on the balcony.
I highly recommend this penthouse. MR. Elias Lizardo thank you for allowing my family and I to stay in your penthouse. Looking forward to our next trip.
Let me start out by saying that the only reason I give this place 4 stars instead of 5 is because you need a car to explore to fully take advantage of the island.
The apartment is great! Exactly what we wanted; full size kitchen and fully equipped. The living room and dinning room are spacious and the great big tv. If you want to travel in comfort this is the place.
The apartment had a lot more room than we expected! We had a lot of luggage and there was a big closet in the hallway were we stored them throughout the trip.
The view is beautiful and the pool for the building as well. The apartment compound itself is very clean and well kept. We loved that they have restaurants on site if you want to take a break from cooking.
Regarding the location, the supermarket is walking distance (but I don't know if you want to walk back with all the groceries). There is a gas station, a smoothie stand and I think a pharmacy near by. If you like diving Barefoot Divers is a short 10 min drive.
I would definitely recommend stating here, we would stay here again.
Perfect location for visiting Pristine Bay for Golf or Little French Key for Beach and fun. Great views of Caribbean from the balcony and a large pool for the kids. Close to restaurants and groceries. We had no problems communicating with the owner with responses almost immediate.
Clarion Suites is in French Harbour, pretty much in the middle of the island. Snorkeling, scuba, dining, canopy adventures and golf are all within 10 minutes of the penthouse.
The Bay Islands of Honduras have been rated number 2 in the world for snorkeling and diving. The best way to discover our paradise is to take your next vacation here.
