At the Mariposa Lodge we Provide Full housekeeping between 9:00am and noon including making beds, taking out garbage, sweeping the floor, changing towels, and refreshing drinking water.
We do our part to help the environment and ask that you turn off air-conditioners and ceiling fans when you leave your room, clean and store dishes after each use, lock your door, leave the towels in the rooms. Observing these simple requests ensures that you get the most out of your stay with no hassles to spoil the Zen of your stay.
Help is close at hand so let our experts arrange, roatan diving a car or scooter rental or a sailing trip to Utila. You can also schedule a dolphin encounter or a coral reef diving trip through the hotel. We know the area, so let us help you with ground transportation to and from the airport or with island hopping on a local flight. A 50% deposit is required at time of booking. If canceled 45 days prior to arrival a 50% of the deposit will be refunded. Within 45 days of arrival, the deposit is non-refundable.
Pricing: Pricing is the biggest challenge in any business. In Honduras. While lifestyles are simple, the cost of living on Roatan is quite high. The Mariposa is priced to compete locally, yet provides a level of quality and service comparable with many US hotel chains. We have outfitted the Mariposa to a standard we would be comfortable staying in and with many amenities that are not available in resorts costing hundreds of dollars a day. There are a lot of budget hotels in Central America, and in many cases you get what you pay for. At the Mariposa you get a whole lot more.
What to expect
Taxi fares from the airport start at $ 25.00 US. As in most countries, it's a good idea to agree on the price before you get in, to avoid disputes later. The ride from the airport will take about 20-25 minutes. The main street of West End runs along the beach and past the shops and restaurants. The Mariposa Lodge is about 300 feet up a quiet side street that runs up the hill in the center of town. Electricity is North American 120 Volt standard but short power outages are frequent. While the tap water is reasonably safe in West End, most tourists stick to the bottled water we supply.
