Best vacation ever

We loved Camp Bay Lodge! Incredible views, friendliest staff, amazing food. The Owner, Chris and his family, are such incredible people and go above and beyond. Definitely recommend this spot. We can’t wait to come back.

Camp bay lodge is the perfect place to spend a peaceful and private trip in the east end of roatan. It is located on one of the most beautiful, pristine, virgin and calm beaches of roatan where you can enjoy the whole beach without a crowd. Plenty of activities like kite surfing depending on the weather, kayak, snorkeling, scuba diving and trips around the east end of the beach.

The lodge has an outstanding vibe with their hosts Marylou and Chris who make your stay very familiar and cozy. The rooms are located right on the beach and you only need to take 10 steps to be in the water. Great food, clean and nicely designed spaces to enjoy a real relaxed beach vacation! Fully recommended!

Pure Paradise

Coming to Camp Bay Lodge is really a true island authentic beach experience. Located on the most pristine beach in all of Roatan the lodge has everything you need to really relax and unwind. Comfortable rooms, delicious food & plenty of hammocks – this place is pure bliss. Highly recommend and will be back again… and again!

Camp Bay Lodge is located in a beautiful beach on east end Roatan, the best thing is that it’s not crowded at all. We met Christian and his family, they are really nice. Also Selina  is an excellent cook and very kind, she cooked a delicious “sopa marinera” which is a must to try if you are ever here. I would recommend renting a car, since the place is far away, and I know next time I’m in Roatan I will be staying at Camp Bay Lodge.

Like a 2nd home

Booked in for 3 weeks mid February and ended up extending my stay!
Loved the location, the community, the staff, the rooms, the food, the beach, the kite school… everything.
It was my first visit, but definitely not my last.

Amazing again!

The Lodge is definitely on my top five of all time favorite places in the world. We spent a week here (our second visit), dove with Dive Pangea and spent lazy days between on the beach or waiting out the occasional shower in our room. Delicious breakfast by Rachel, super management by Marilou and responsible ownership by Phil all make this place so very special. Fingers crossed that development of nearby properties are handled as wisely!
This is a special community and the owners and managers of both Camp Bay Lodge and Dive Pangea are investing their time, energy and money in training, education and development to strengthen the local economy and the people here.
Our details:
We stayed in the Almond Studio for a little extra space and the kitchenette. Great option for a couple of solo traveler. No AC which might be an issue in warmer months. The screened louvers on the west facing doors and south facing windows open entirely for good ventilation. Great “private” stairway to a good sized deck with bench seating and a hammock. The kitchen is minimally equipped with a few pots and pans, plates & silverware (no coffee maker! Tragic) but also a good sized fridge with a little freezer space, big sink, water dispenser and two burner hot plate. Buy staples like oil and basic seasonings if you are on an extended stay and plan to cook. And maybe an espresso pot or travel press if you need extra coffee (coffee at the included breakfast is bottomless – and strong!) and cups suitable for beach drinks if you are so inclined. The restaurant serves a bit of a limited menu (good selection for a week, would be repetitive for an extended stay) for lunch and dinner and decently priced drinks from the full bar. Kite surfing is a big deal here. Watching kite surfing is about my speed, but from what I’ve seen, the teaching staff would be happy to help anyone catch some air!  

We are still on the island and dealing with border issues on the part of both Honduran and US governments and commercial flights. Everyone here has been accommodating and helpful in the midst of their own worries. I wish everyone safe travels, good health at home and that we can all make our way through this with as much grace as we’ve seen here.

Beautiful, easy and relaxing!

Just left Camp Bay lodge, and already want to go back.
The rooms are clean, very nice relaxing vibe, some have kitchens, all have a little fridge for snacks. The beds are comfy and very well cared for. The fresh air of the ocean and the rainforest make it so nice, that you won’t even want to use the AC. The rooms are all way worth the price. 

Every one that works there is super easygoing and friendly. 
The place is safe, we did not even lock our doors all week. 
There is a security guard 24/7. 
The kitchen staff is so nice and helpful. The menu is simple, tasty and really healthy. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food.
Honestly, quality price, it is a no brainer. The only thing you need to keep in mind it is that the nearest village is 45 min car ride away. So enjoy every moment out there to disconnect.

2 Weeks of total relaxation!

We stayed at this wonderful place for two weeks and can honestly say that it was the most relaxing vacation we’ve been on! We were barefoot almost the entire time! The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The restaurant was excellent. The beach was beyond beautiful and clean and it was very handy to have a dive shop right next door. We heard the road going in was rough but found it wasn’t bad at all. The room was excellent and clean I guess the only thing we would suggest is finding a good bug spray as in other posts the sand fleas are annoying. I would definitely go back to this little piece of paradise.

Sweet spot for relaxation. Great kiting spot.

On the quieter side of Roatan you will find this peaceful easy beach place where the wind is good for kiters and also a quiet haven for non kiters. You will find no other distraction than the wind in the trees and the sound of the waves. Cool snorkeling excursion through the mangrove worth booking. An easier kiting site is available as an excursion for extra fee. Heads up for cool restaurant with fresh healthy menu and classic hot weather drinks with the addition of the local cocktail called the Monkey la la. Worth trying. Staff is warm and welcoming. Hosts are hands on and super friendly.

3 Old Kiters… beginners!

We went to celebrate a 50th birthday – with learning how to kitesurf… at Camp Bay Lodge in Roatan!

Camp Bay is situated on the far side of the island, away from the typical tourist ‘noise’. A peaceful and relaxing spot (less the sand flies), we had a fantastic time… and ate fantastic food. Rachel was the super star of breakfast and her team made fantastic food throughout the day (the fish burritos are to die for). Toss on some Jerk sauce… done!

We stayed in the “Sunrise” room – and it lived up to its name. Be prepared to awake with the sun! Room layout, beds, fans and the kitchen were all nicely appointed. We enjoyed the room for a great place to land, between time on the beach and watching sunsets.

The dock and waterfront were a great place to enjoy the tropical sunrises and sunsets.

Afternoon breezes cooled us off… a great place for ‘bocce coconut’.

Great time in excellent lodge

We stumbled upon Camp Bay lodge while driving the island from West to East on a cloudy day. What a find!
At the time we were staying in West End and decided it was time for a change.
Camp Bay is a bit remote, but so worthwhile.
The Lodge provides all types
of modern, clean, authentic sea facing and spacious rooms. Comfortable beds, large showers, breakfast, knowledgeable, well trained staff.
The Lodge specializes in Kite Surfing – we didn’t kite surf but enjoyed watching!  

There is fun and very interesting mix of travelers who we enjoyed mixing with.

The staff at CBLodge are very accommodating and friendly and helped us find as much or as little as we wanted to do. The set the pace for a very enjoyable visit and time of exploration.

We really felt that this area and this part of our stay was the very best of Roatan!

The only small drawback: just like all over the island- the sand fleas. You must take deet, sadly, the natural products do not work.

We completely enjoyed our stay and would love to return again!

Camp Bay Lodge… A wonderful place to stay in the tranquillo east end of Roatan!

Very comfortable room, wonderful staff, and tasty food! Rachel’s breakfasts were delightful! After spending a week over in West Bay it was lovely to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the eastern part of Roatan. About a half km down the beach or road further east is the little Tiki bar-food spot called La Serena, mucho magnifico! Friendly locals, lovely beach, and I enjoyed meeting the other guests at the Camp Bay Lodge. Hope to return some day!

Relaxing and Quiet! 

The rooms are very clean, very well thought of. We were in the Sunset cabana for a week. The kitchenette is efficient, with full size fridge, a blender, a panini grill and a drip coffee-maker. The staff is easy to find, amazing attitude, always ready to help with a smile. Beds are comfortable. Hot water for the shower. Rooms are well lit and aerated, we did not need to use the AC.

The included breakfast is generous, lots of fruits with unlimited drip coffee or tea with cows and almond milk. Vegans, vegetarians and omnivorous are well taken of. Vegans, please make sure to tell the chef when you arrive and possibly when making the reservation.

There is no gym with equipment but a nice outdoor covered yoga platform above the restaurant.

Sea kayaks are available to use with enough safety vests. We did not do kite surfing but our friends did and the school is quite responsible with all the safety and security. (someone in a motor boat around). Great reefs with tons of fish within 10 minutes paddling for snorkeling.

At night, most people congregate in the outdoor seated restaurant although we did cook for ourselves 4 out of 7 nights. The restaurant closes at 21h00 and everything is quiet after that.

The one thing that, in retrospect, we should have brought is our portable espresso machine (Wacaco.com).

The beach is amazing, the wharf within 1 minutes walk from the restaurant! With lounge chairs and hammocks between trees. Nice sandy beach that’s great for swimming.

Security guards overnight add to the extra safe environment of this resort.

There are sandflies at dusk and dawn, a fair few of them to be honest but that’s expected in the Caribbean. Make sure you buy coco oil at the supermarket Eldon’s on your way and bring some lavender oil to mix it in. I did not see any citronella candles in any of the little stores. That’s another thing to bring from home if you think you need it.

We already recommended this place to several of our friends.

Beautiful and quite beach

Camp Bay Lodge is a beautiful property located in a quiet beach not frequented by lots of tourists. Lovely place to unwind and take it all in. The room was very well equipped with a large bathroom and good kitchen. The staff were super friendly and the food at the restaurant was quite tasty. Highly recommended for a visit to Roatan.

A piece of heaven

This is our second time to Camp Bay Lodge and this is rapidly becoming our go-to place when we want a relaxing, beautiful beach get-away. The end of the road location and simple but stylish digs really put us in beach mode. The food is also a treat!
