Media Luna Resort and Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed at Media Luna Resort in April 2017. Having read the reviews from others, we had limited expectations.This turned out to be a relaxing and interesting vacation spot. This is not a luxury resort but it has very interesting features. For instance, the accommodation in individual "cabanas" makes it unique. In addition, Honduras is known to be a divers paradise which is also true for snorkelers. As pointed out by other reviewers, this resort is secluded and is probably not a preferred destination for those who want to do shopping and nightlife. However, if you want a peaceful week surrounded by lush vegetation, birds, etc, maybe this place is for you.
Incredible views. This is a great place to stay to get away from the busy West End. Great food, great service, nice clean rooms (though a little run down). We were very happy with the food. It is always fresh and there is a good variety to choose from so you won't get tired of it. Snorkelling off the dive shop dock was incredible! We rented a car and explored the island - highly recommend doing that - but the resort offers many excursions to get out and experience the island.
I feel like many of the reviews do not accurately reflect the state of this resort. When we chose to stay at Media Luna, I was highly influenced by the great reviews here on this website and we were really disappointed. Here's my honest review:Cons:- brutally rough, bumpy road leading into resort (discourages excursions)- rusty and damaged grounds (injury in one of the pools due to missing tiles)- only one restaurant (not many options and poor quality.. even the cocktails at the bar were not good)- cockroaches in cabanas (room)- no Internet in cabanas (room)- salt water only (prepare to brush your teeth, etc. with bottled water)Pros:- stunning natural beauty and wildlife (lots of lizards on the resort)- friendly staff and entertainment crew- private cabanas (rooms)- small, but nice beach
People tend to do reviews with paragraphs, but see my thought is: why the need to explain in such depth. here's my review:Location: Very private and secluded, and very intimate.Food: Always fresh, awesome variety of all types of food.Room: I can't say enough about them, they were class A and our view was priceless #oceanfront.Amenities: Fantastic, a/c broke down 1 night, we were accommodated with another oceanfront room and the front desk gave us a bottle of wine to compensate for the inconvenience of moving rooms.So overall, my partner and I are heading back sometime this year for sure.#MediaLunaRocksYour GlobetrottersN & GPickering, Ontario Canada
Room: The cabanas are spacious, clean and well appointed. All cabanas have a large varanda with a fan and hamak. Accomodations are lovely. Buffet was good with a freshly prepared local food and pasta section. Desserts are minimal, except for the brownies that are excellent, and the fresh fruits. The dining room is round with several levels that look on to the show and stage area - very nice.Beach - This is a snorkling and diving resort. There is a very small sandy beach area. The snorkling is excellent. The best spot for the snorkling is at the deck area away from the main resort and beach area, close to the diving shop. The reef starts immediately at the shore, so you sit in the warm ocean water, put on your mask and float out, very shallow at this point. You definitely need water shoes for walking along the 'beach area'. Snorklers should not use full length flippers, use the smaller travel size; it's all you need. Divers, it's a great place to get your licence. The people who run the program are very responsible and are masters. You will get the theory part followed by diving part. I'm not a diver, but did go take a ride out to one of their dives and spoke to participants in the program. All of them only had nice things to say about the organizers and staff. As a snorkler, my ride was $25 US dollars and that included 2 viewing areas. There is no alcohol on these rides but they do provide fresh watermelon and water. A big plus of this resort is the snorkling and diving, I can't say enough good things about the wonderful under water wold I witnessed. And because it is primarily snorklers and divers, there is not much drinking and you rarely see anyone who has drunk too much. Entertainment is mostly local and reflects local traditional type dances. If you visit and have a little space in your luggage or don't mind paying for a 1 way ticket on an extra suitcase/box full of stuff for them, the troupe is in desperate need of costumes, makeup, anything that might help them dress up for shows. They literally have nothing but the talent is there. A great first aid kit with tensor bandages and ankle and knee braces might be appreciated, they really have nothing.Internet is good in both the lobby and restaurant. Many visitors were facetiming with family.Overall, our experience was very very good and I am definitely going back!
