Great and unique property

Bruce and his team are very attentive to your needs. From airport pickup, to bringing a fresh bag of ice they are there to make your stay great. My wife and I really enjoyed Brisa del Mar. Just know going in that it is an open air style villa, so you will have the occasional bug, or mosquito to deal with. While we were there it was pretty windy most nights so we did not really have to deal with too many mosquitos. Overall we settled in and had a great time. I never turned the TV on in the 7 days we were there. We had Rosa cook for us the first night, and after that we used the provided truck that comes with the villa and we ate out all the other nights, except one night we cooked our own meal. I would stay there again.

Brisa Del Mar
We had an amazing time overall! Bruce and the staff were equally attentive and dedicated to our privacy. Highlight was the boat charter!! We also loved having a vehicle to explore the island. One thing to note is weekend nights can be loud from music from a nearby disco, but it wasn’t too much of a bother. We would definitely go back!
Beautiful, Private, and Perfect!
We stayed at Brisa Del Mar for 6 days and it was not nearly long enough! The Brisa crew coordinated transportation to and from the airport, supplied honest and helpful information about nearby destinations, and a wonderful, comfortable, and well stocked home base for us. Easy access to kayaks and snorkel gear was a nice perk. The staff were professional, kind, and always available yet somehow completely unobtrusive. Without a doubt, we would stay here again in the future!
Sun, fun, & relaxation
For our second time at this property, it continues to be one of our favorite vacation destinations! While the sand flies were determined to get us, we were more so to enjoy ourselves!! (Psa: white vinegar saves the day for the bites and the sunburns.) With the van at our disposal, we love exploring the island, going to the grocery when we need to, and finding all the best beaches and lunch spots. Rosa and Roxana made the most delicious dinners each night-leaving us full as ticks and moving like sloths!! It’s so nice to be able to relax and not have to get out of the pool to prep and cook dinner- and after you buy the food needed for the first night’s meal, Rosa will buy the necessary groceries for the rest of the meals!! She earned her tip, and then some!! Phil, Fausto and the grounds crew were so attentive without being intrusive. They were quick to get us anything we needed. We love getting to visit with Bruce and family at pizza night out under the pavilion in front of the pizza oven. Camp Bay beach was beautiful and wide open- with either a short boat ride or 20 minute drive. Having no schedule or place to be, and no TV for a week is my favorite type of vacation. We will be back!!
Absolute Paradise
Selfishly, I wish we could keep Fuego Del Mar a secret so that others can't book it when we want to go back. The house is stunning, the staff is amazing, and the amenities (boat, car, kayaks, etc) are incredible. Although the photos are beautiful, they don't do the house justice. This is truly a very special place. Bruce and Phillipe and their staff made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. As Phillipe predicted, we wish we had stayed longer. I can't imagine there's a more beautiful and better managed estate on Roatan than this one.
2 weeks in Roatan
We spent the first week at another house on this property, and then the second week at Fuego Del Mar. It was beautiful. The view from the deck was unmatched. The staff was friendly and helpful. People should know that most of this house is open air. We thought it was lovely, and bugs were really not much of a problem. The bedrooms could be closed off and had air conditioning so we were always comfortable. We enjoyed the properties' cats and dogs wandering over to say hello. We had 8 of us staying there. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We rented the treehouse (an add-on room that is available) when our nephew decided to come join us for a few days. It was a great property and we would definitely stay there again.
Absolutely Amazing!
We had such an excellent time here. We are a group of friends, in our 30’s, and we had the best time here. The staff that manages the property takes care of every detail. The house itself is incredible. We enjoyed the option to use a care to explore the island ourselves AND the option of a driver. Perfect combo. They also helped us arrange scuba and snorkeling, golf, and a day on the boat with Capitan Dan. Dinner and pizza by Rosa was excellent l, best meals of our trip! Thank you to the entire team at the vilas for making our stay perfect.
Peaceful Paradise with 5 Star Service
Our group of 6 live extremely busy, stressful lives in the northeastern US and planned our getaway to relax and restore. Mariposa del Mar more than delivered on their description of the location, amenities and luxury. If you are looking for raucous nightlife this is not the property for you but even so, those type of activities are close enough to enjoy if you so choose. Snorkeling off the dock was some of the best we saw; however, our trips to Pigeon Key and other snorkel locations with Derek also delivered some amazing experiences. Rosa, Bruce, Phillipe, Nicky, et al. were wonderful to work with and get to know. Bruce repeatedly encouraged us to embrace "island time" and we certainly tried our best. The beautiful art work in the shop on the property was amazing and we brought a few pieces home to relive our wonderful time. Other reviews mention that the pictures do not do it justice and we agree. The property and villas are gorgeous and the service impeccable. This is a must visit location!
Like a Private Resort
Where to even begin about this wonderful place?! The home is much more beautiful than the pictures even suggest. The location is ocean front, and has great sunsets. It was private, safe, clean, and endlessly fun. We stayed on property for most of our stay, taking advantage of the resort like amenities and living in our swimsuits between the pool and the reef in front of the house. We had Rosa cook for us every night, which was really wonderful and delicious. Taking the private boat out for the day from the dock was a real treat, and took us to the best spots on the island without worrying about driving or parking or crowds. The house had a hot tub, which was a delightful surprise. Great snorkeling right off the dock, and easy access to the reef via kayaks (but probably for the more adventurous snorkelers who don’t mind solitude). Lots of security and staff, cats, dogs, and birds. Gift shop, spa, and pizza palapa were all adorable and fun and really made the whole property feel like our own fully staffed private island. Thank you Bruce & Nikki for a truly exceptional stay - it could not have been more beautiful, and we can’t wait to come back!
Wonderful and pampered vacation
This is a fabulous and beautiful property! Everything we wanted for a getaway. The airport pickup was a treat and when a couple members of our party arrived on a slightly earlier flight, the driver took them to a near by grocery store to stock up while waiting for our flight. The bedrooms were all beautiful, beds comfortable, the views from the upper and lower deck serene. We snorkeled right off the dock out front everyday of our 2 week stay spying new creatures every day. Rosa cooked for us nearly half of the evening meals which made us feel so cared for. Her food was delicious. The kitchen had everything we needed for any kind of meal prep. All of us used the spa services on site at least once or twice. It was so convenient to have the car available for exploring which we took advantage of and checked out several locations mostly on the east end of the island. Only one day did we go up to West Bay as we were so happy with what we had available. A couple members of our group also took advantage of the golfing and really enjoyed the course. The ocean, the pool, the hot tub, all enjoyed over and over again. If a lot of nightlife in bars is your thing, I would choose another property. If you want to enjoy the people you are with and enjoy your day outings and the comforts around you, this place cannot be beat. It went beyond all of our hopes. What's not to love!
