Rachel is your guaranteed morning sunshine. She will be there greeting you with your morning coffee or tea, and a fresh homemade breakfast. She has been with us since we opened the Camp Bay Lodge and is actually The Lodge’s longest time employee as she was with the previous owners since they initially constructed The Lodge. Rachel is a native of the Camp Bay Village, and along with her extended family support many of the activities of the Patronato. Ask Rachel anything about The Village and she will be a wealth of information.
Vicky is the smile behind your drink, smoothie or fresco. She has been our number one bartender since opening The Camp Bay Lodge back in 2015. I have been told that The Lodge offers the best Monkey LaLa on the Island. That would be thanks to Vicky.
Vicky is also a lifelong resident of Camp Bay. She adds a lot of fun to The Lodge. If you are interested in venturing out on a Sunday afternoon/evening to experience fiesta in Punta Blanca, just ask Vicky. She has been known to host trips to Punta Gorda for The Lodge guests.
Jerry might be a little elusive. You will probably find him hidden in the kitchen behind the bar preparing your chicken quesadilla, fish burrito or full on lobster dinner. Jerry has also been with The Lodge since opening. Prior to joining us at The Lodge, Jerry got his start at La Sirena, the palapa restaurant and bar steps down the beach. Jerry and Vicky are often working side by side to keep the kitchen and bar going during lunch and dinner. This is a familiar situation for them as they are actually brother and sister.
Selina is our most recent addition to The Lodge kitchen. She can be found doing whatever it takes to keep the kitchen as well as the bar running smoothly. Selina is our shortest term staff member, but she actually brings the most experience to the restaurant and bar. She is the co-founder of La Sirena and if you ask anyone that has been on the island for long, they will know Selina and her delicious recipes. Before joining The Lodge, Selina spend some time in the US working in restaurants in Miami. She is also a native of The Camp Bay Village.
Nessa is the one with the infectious smile. She is out there delivering food and drinks and interacting with our guests, always spreading that genuine happiness. Nessa is also our number two bartender. After joining us 3 years ago she worked alongside Vicky and learned many of Vicky’s tricks. Nessa is also a life-long resident of Camp Bay and is family with Rachel. Maybe that is why they share that warm smile.
You may or may not get to know Chito as he is always busy. You certainly will know Chito if you experience any problems with your accommodations. He is our multi-talented maintenance guru. He was also responsible for the build-out of our new rooms and the remodeling of some of the older rooms. He is our problem solver when it comes to anything related to our east end Roatan hotel facilities. Chito and his family live on the east end as does all of our team, but Chito is our ‘commuter’, traveling in from First Bight each day.
If you are an early-bird, you will find Pedro every morning grooming the beach before our guests head out to enjoy the sun. If you are not an early riser your will find Pedro working around the grounds keeping our lush plantings happy. He is our master gardener and landscape specialist. He has been with us for quite some time and the grounds have been completely transformed since he joined. Prior to working at our Eco Lodge in Roatan, he was the gardener down the beach at Spring Water. Pedro and his family currently live in Oak Ridge but prior to that they were living in The Village.
Marba may have been the first face you saw when you reached The Lodge. She is our office manager and coordinates arrival and departure of our guests. Marba is also our problem solver. She can help with any concerns related to The Lodge, travel, or just providing guidance coordinating activities at The Lodge or elsewhere on the east end. Marba is also a live long resident of the east end having grown up in Diamond Rock. She currently lives in The Camp Bay Village. Marba and Selina are sisters.
Elloncito started to kite in 2015, immediately it was clear he was “born ready”and improved quickly to an impressive level with sky as the only limit. He is a very dedicated teacher always hands on, with him you’ll be able to improve quickly as he did. If he isn’t teaching and there is wind you’ll guaranteed find him going all out kitesurfing in front of the Lodge. If you see him don’t be shy to say hi.
Junior is our big support from St. Helene and he is been teaching beginner lessons for 2 years. Students appreciate his calm & clear instructions. He is extremely methodical and makes sure you hit those milestones to become a self sufficient kitesurfer. You’ll be in the best hands and knowing someone is seriously looking after you and dedicated to your progress and safety.
Jardale has been helping us since Day 1 when we used to live door by door in the village. Many guests have him in good memory because of his kind personality and helpful attitude. He usually is assisting on the beach or driving the rescue boat but has started to do the next step and is teaching beginner lessons and taking on supervision with guests not quite ready to be by themselves. Invite him for a boardgame or any other fun activity if you want to get to know him.
