Worldwide, facilities for traveling guests with limited lower extremity mobility are still hard to find. Lets face it, as a rule, developing countries have few travelers with proper facilities. One of the reasons is that there are no laws in place that seek to ensure that those who are somehow impaired have equal opportunities. Honduras is no exception to this reality. Most of the larger franchise hotels in the big cities in Honduras do offer a limited number of rooms for those with special needs. Sadly, few other hotels take this into consideration! The truth is that most of us in Honduras cannot really relate to limited lower extremity mobility guests.
Perhaps one of the reasons is that we seldom see them traveling in Honduras. Personally, I can relate to it very well. My dear father suffered from Polio, and although he managed to get around, he certainly had mobility problems. Perhaps if we only took this into consideration, it would open the doors to many travelers that would come if he had the right facilities. As such, I was delighted to learn that the brand-new Richardson Serenity Villa in Roatan has taken this issue upon themselves.
Guests with Limited Lower Extremity Mobility in Roatan Now Have an Option!
Yes, there is now a hotel that offers facilities for Guests with Limited Lower Extremity Mobility in Roatan! The Richardson Serenity Villa in Roatan is now open and features 10 rooms. Of these, four rooms take into consideration the Americans with Disabilities Act standards. This means easy wheelchair access throughout the common areas, extra wide room and bathroom doors and many other standards. We welcome this new hotel and are proud to offer facilities that are appropriate for guests with limited lower extremity mobility. This is the first such hotel in Roatan, and we hope that entrepreneurs in other destinations within Honduras will soon follow example.
The Richardson Serenity Villa is located between West End and West Bay. It is an adult only facility. Access is easy via the main road between these two communities. A beautiful mountain top view looking down to the turquoise Caribbean will take your breath away. A spectacular infinity swimming pool with easy access is ideal for all guests. There is no doubt that Roatan is getting more sophisticated and becoming an all-inclusive World Class Destination! We congratulate the hotel for offering facilities for guests with limited lower extremity mobility in Roatan!
