About Matt Adkins
Villa del RIU has been a dream of ours since we first sank our toes in the silky white sand beaches of West Bay. Roatan is such a special place for us and I am sure it will be for you too. The friendly people and welcoming culture make Roatan a home to everyone that visits.
Matt Adkins purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Matt Adkins chose Lighthouse Estates
This location is ideal for any reason of vacation. West Bay has an amazing white sand beach with warm waters and world class diving and snorkeling. It also hosts numerous cruise ships and visitors every year. Villa del RIU is minutes from all of the action but far enough to be private and secluded offering the best of both entertainment and relaxation.

Just returned from an amazing trip to Roatan. Loved this villa and the entire property. The view from the living room and balcony everyday was incredible. The beds are nice as well. The pool at the property is so nice as was the food at the restaurant which is right below the villa. I went to get something to go one night and they offered to deliver it when it was ready! The services all around at this property are amazing. We never had to worry about a car as they either took us or got us one very quickly and they had many recommendations for things to do as well. The property Manager Afan was impressive - so kind, and helped us with anything we needed. It was like having your own private house in a very quiet resort. West Beach is 5 minutes away by car and everything seemed relatively close. Excellent location and would return!
Awesome getaway spot!
We had a great time at this Meridian Condo. It had everything needed to make our stay perfect. Thank you so much to Matt for all of the helpful information that was sent ahead of time to plan the perfect trip.
We Stayed at this beautiful property for 8 nights. We had 7 people and there was lots of space and it was beautiful inside and out.The location was perfect. It was a close walk or drive to the beach. The only thing I would recommend is a car. I have 6 year old twins and it was just easier after a long day at the beach to jump in the car to head home. Also with the car we had the ease of going to dinner every night on the West End without having to worry about getting a cab. We also explored the Island which was such a blast. The staff at the Meridian were awesome and so helpful. This property is quiet and not on the main beach with all the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Roatan and our villa. We would love to have you come back.
The villa was really nice with spectacular sunset views! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked if you want to prepare any meals yourself. They do provide a water cooler with jugs of water which is nice so you don't have to buy water at the store. The resort is pretty private and quiet. Because the beach is only accessible through the property it is not accessed by anyone outside of the resort. The resort staff were all excellent! The food and drinks were great. We would definitely consider returning for another visit.
We arrived at the villa and it was as beautiful as it is in the pictures and so much more. The villa was perfect, luxurious and exceeded our expectations. We travel alot and have rented homes and villas all over the Carribean and this was at the top of our list. The entire property is beautiful and peaceful. The restaurant Kismet and the snorkling right off of the beach was fantastic. I definitely plan on visiting Roatan and the Villa again. Matt was very responsive and informative, the staff at the front desk and restaurant were awesone and our driver Juan Carlos was THE BEST. He catered to our desires and was always available to drive us all where ever we wanted to go. He booked our tours and ensured that we were well taken care of and satisfied. Thanks again Matt and Juan. You will not be disappointed vacationing in Villa de Rui.
The best trip to the tropics we've ever had.
Although my review is months later, the afterglow of fantastic trip still lingers with us. We used a person Matt knew to shuttle us to & from the airport. They were really nice people - we stopped at the grocery store on the way to the home, and found everything as amazing as the pictures showed. The home is completely first class in construction and superbly appointed.
Our shuttle friends arranged for a private tour of Cayos Cochinos for the four of us. We had a certified boat captain, with a local expert snorkeler to act as a guide. He carried a life jacket on a tether in case one of us had needed it. They brought food & drinks and were completely focused on our having a great time.
We didn't realize the native language of Roatan is English - while the locals are bi-lingual, we noticed they mostly spoke English with each other. I had been semi-braced to recall my Spanish from high school - which is now reduced to being completely fluent in ordering anything Spanish on a menu, and most forms of libation.
After years of going to Mexico where we were constantly seen as a target to get ripped off, or catcalls about what they wanted to do to my blonde haired wife, Roatan was completely the opposite. People were respectful and happy to have us there. The staff at Matt's property were very friendly and easy to work with for the few needs we had. I've never felt so welcome outside of the U.S..
I describe our experience at this property as "we had our own private Poipu, a state beach on Kauai." The snorkeling off of the beach was as nice as was we saw at Cayos. 83F water is ridiculously pleasant to slide into, and the protected area around this beach made for easy in & out every day.
We found the kitchen well appointed and made some really superb meals. We also used the restaurant on the beach, which we felt did a great job.
We did not rent a car only because this was our first trip. We didn't feel a need to rent one - we had the shuttle team do a mid-week grocery store run. While we are planning to go back to Matt's place, we probably wouldn't rent a car so long as we had access to the shuttle car team. But, it's hilly in Roatan, and with lot's of kids you'd want to have one since walking off the beach is up or down.
Villa del RIU is located right on a silky white sand beach at the western point of Roatan. Excellent snorkeling, diving, and fishing right off the beach. The restaurant/bar is top notch. Views from the villa are breath-taking in so many directions. A short 10 minute walk to the popular West Bay Beach with large resorts, shopping, dive shops, and markets. A quick water taxi ride to West End for an island nightlife, clubs, and cultural shopping. The villa is within a short walk to days worth of adventure, pristine beach, and best reef in the Caribbean. However just far enough from busy beaches, crowds of the cruise ships, and nightlife for when you want to relax, have a romantic retreat, or take a shady siesta in a hammock listening to the waves. Its the best of both vacations in one location.
