This is the third time that we have stayed at the Reef House resort over
the last several years. This is a low cost, no frills resort on the east
end (south side) of Roatan. The main reason we stay here is that the dive
sites are more pristine and the water is usually clearer. There is very
little development on this end of the island so it is better in general.
The other reason is that it is very low cost, normally sub $1000 for 7 days
(diving, room and 3 meals a day). 

As this resort is at the east end of Roatan and on

I was at Reef House in Jan. 2016 and agree with much of this review. Food
was very good and kitchen was accommodating. Diving was good to very good.
Never had another boat on our site or even close. The DM. Davitt, spent
more time looking (and killing) lionfish, but when asked to spot seahorses,
was most accommodating. The locals do come, but I enjoyed talking with
them. During my week, they were there for only one night (Friday) and only
for a few hours. Apparently there is a circuit that they do and each place
gets visited every couple weeks or so.

As I always lock most everything up regardless of where I'm at, I did not
have any concern for theft. I used a table in the mail room as a camera
table and left everything out, except cameras all the time. No incident.
There was a safe in my room for passports, etc.

Plan to go back in 2017.
