Just returned from the most relaxing vacation we've ever had.  Reef House
Resort is in Oak Ridge, south shore of Roatan, but 10-12 miles east of the
Coco View and Fantasy Island commotion and diver traffic. Roughly forty
recognized dive sites along this stretch of coast; rarely saw another dive
boat, except the one day we ventured to Mary's Place.

Reef House is great!  12 rooms, low key, family style dining, sit and BS
with the owners and staff, good food, TV and Internet phone access if you
need it, no phones, we loved it!  I would highly recommend this resort and
its dive operation if you just want to relax, kick back, and dive. 3 boat
dives plus unlimited shore diving daily. Only one night dive a week; could
have stood more.

Wall dives are 20-200 yards off shore, first drop is to about 120' in most
places.  Great soft corals, good sponges, lots of little reef critters, not
much reef fish traffic.  Most dives are of a somewhat similar character.
Windier than usual for May while we were there, which lowered viz

Do it again?  Definite "yes" for the Reef House.  Roatan in
general ...too many places to see to say that I would go right back there.
