About Al Robichaud

We are a US diving family living in the frigid Northeast and have enjoyed coming to Roatan for nearly 10 years. This is our favorite dive location in all of the Caribbean, with an abundance of amazing dive sites and the 2nd largest reef in the world. The reef is alive with fish and plant life and only a 2-10 minute small boat ride to the jump in. The developer did a wonderful job with high end amenities and an incredible location. The place is the perfect blend of water activities and peaceful relaxation but close enough to all the benefits of West End.

Al Robichaud purchased this condo in 2014

Why Al Robichaud chose West End

West End is the perfect combination of water activities, beach, restaurants and night life. It is not overly developed and not a big tourist area. It is fantastic for divers and those interested in fishing. It is safe, with a variety of very affordable food choices: Honduran, Thai, Mexican, Chicken, Argentinian, Italian, seafood, burgers etc. Wifi access is available from the majority of dive shops and restaurants for those that don't want to disconnect.

What makes this condo unique

Pelican Penthouse, in Mangrove Dock is perfectly situated just 3-5 mins walking to the center of West End. It is just close enough that you'll never need a car, but far enough away that you wont be subject to the late night noise and mid day bustle, especially on Cruise Days (only 1-2 times per week in season). The 360 degree views from the rooftop patio are amazing and the breezes allow for comfortable living not requiring use of the AC. There is a bathroom and wetbar on rooftop with a hammock and lounges for sun worship and full 8 person table for dining. Access to the rooftop patio is by stairs in the main hallway or private spiral staircase that connects the full length 3rd floor balcony (equipped with table and lounges also) to the rooftop patio. There is access to the 3rd floor patio from the main living area as well as the master suite. The views of the island and of Mangrove Bight are spectacular!

Great time in Roatan!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mangrove Dock was terrific. The accomodations weregreat. Everything was clean and updated. Great finishes in the unit, from granite counters to tile floors. The furnishings were very nice. The pool area, although small, was more than adequate. Most of the time we were the only ones on the pool deck. Ton and Zilla were great to work with. They responded to any requests we had in a timely fashion. Just a short walk to Half Moon Bay and West End made it easy to enjoy all the bars, restaurants and beaches in West End. A short water taxi ride to West Bay and we enjoyed a few beach days there as well. Ton and Zilla arranged for our Transfer to the airport after we check out.I would definitely stay here again.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and another couple stayed here recently on our second visit to Roatan West End. Peter was there at the airport as soon as we arrived. The condo is great and the right price as well. This place is just a short walk to town for restaurants and plenty of dive centers. I highly recommend this condo for your stay at West End

We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay in the penthouse at Mangrove dock! The rooftop deck offered spectacular 180 degree views during the day and fabulous stargazing at night. It was great to be only a short walk away from Halfmoon Bay beach and all of the shops and restaurants at West End. Even more convenient for us was being only two doors down from the best dive shop on Roatan. The condo certainly has all the comforts of home and more. We settled in very quickly and were very sad to leave at the end of our stay. Jackie and Peter were very helpful and amazing hosts. We will definitely return to stay at Mangrove dock for our next trip to Roatan.

great place

we stayed at Mangrove dock for 2 weeks over Christmas! Jacqueline even had a small Christmas tree put into our suite for our 8 year old son. We loved the views and the condo was amazing.

Owner's Response: We always try and make people feel it is like home, especially for Christmas....a tree just completes the festivities....however we always check with individuals just in case it is inappropriate. Little touches make all the difference.

Excellent accommodations in the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our second to Roatan's West End, and our first with Jackie and Peter. They are terrific hosts and have a fantastic, spacious condo. The location is perfect to be near the action, but not right on top of it. Which means great restaurants and bars nearby, but far enough away that you can get a good night's sleep. Under ten a minute walk had us to our dive shop where we enjoyed the world class diving that Roatan has to offer. We are planning two more trips to Roatan within the next year and have already booked this awesome condo. I can't wait to get back to enjoy the beautiful views in the comfort of the of the rooftop patio with the very cool ankle pool. It's the perfect place to cookout, enjoy a cocktail while watching the sunset, or for catching some sun while reading a book. Our teenagers LOVED this condom and didn't want to leave... which is a huge endorsement when teenagers love something. Thank you for keeping such a lovely condo and being such nice friendly people! It is nice to have personalized service which, can often be missing when dealing with a property manager. We will see you March! And again in June!

Owner's Response: Once again wonderful guests.....but I did feel a little sad as they experienced some pretty bad weather during their stay. The main requirement was this to be a diving holiday, and they had previous experience with one of the dive operations in West End. For anyone wanting to dive there is a dive shop next door to us which is perfect for just slipping over a few minutes before the boat leaves, but also there are dive shops from 3 minutes to 10 minutes walk from there is a wealth of choice for all kinds of requirements. The condo proved to be perfect for them even in the bad weather as they had plenty of space to all relax, watch tv, sit out on the balcony or on the roof deck, potter in West End, or go diving. We look forward to welcoming them back again in a few months ...... I am sure this time they will be able to use the swimming pool and enjoy the flowers and gardens, as the weather will be so much better..... storm has passed and we are already back to normal.

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay on the island, especially if someone in your group is diving. The condo was large enough for the 5 of us to really spread out and get our own space if we wanted to read or study for a dive course, as some of us did. The location is next to a great dive shop and close to town. The small pool was usually shaded which was appreciated since it was hot and steamy every day. Jackie and Peter were so helpful with tips and recommendations. We would suggest taking Peter up on the fishing trip if you can. They caught Wahoo, Tuna and Barracuda. Very fun! We hope to return soon!

Car: not necessary

Mangrove Dock is situated on Mangrove Bight which is inside the reef (about 200 metres away from the dock), has views over the quiet Bight, but also has views over the ocean. Just outside the Bight is one of the most visited dive sites, Hole in the Wall offering good diving all down the shoreline to the end of the Island at West Bay. Mangrove Dock is 3 minutes stroll to Half Moon Bay where the beach starts and extends for several miles all the way to West Bay. Being located on the waterfront of the bay, we enjoy tranquility but with the rare exception of having West End just within three minutes walk. The area has many dive operations to chose from, a large number of good and varied restaurants,(one being Gio's fish restaurant for enormous King Crab), the famous Sundowners Beach bar (2 mins from us), there is a choice of canopy tours over the jungle area, paddle boarding, paragliding, jet skis, fishing tours, deep sea fishing, snorkeling banana rides, water slide, and famously the wonderful operation at Anthony's Key for swimming with dolphins in the ocean. There is a botanical garden, butterfly park and many other attractions.

Should you wish for a relaxing massage after a hard day, or making a day of it, we can arrange for a qualified Physiotherapist/Masseuse to come to your condo...she will also help with aqua therapy in our pool, should this be a requirement

We are in the process of finishing our brand new dock as the old one suffered huge damage in a major storm in will be exciting to see the opening in about 10 days (mid Aug).
