Comments The good is the island itself and the people, and of course the diving, the bad is the amount of cash needed to tip everyone and their uncle. the room even had a card suggesting all the people to tip and how much. When traveling to Roatan bring only small bills as it was sometimes hard to break even a twenty dollar bill never mind fifties and hundreds!
Las Rocas was great overall for us, we're just divers and not looking for the Ritz. Only negitive was the total lack of boat maintainance, they need to invest a little in that area. Resort location is ideal at end of west bay beach, we will definatly return.
