Nice place to be outside

The outside and the restaurant were great. The room not so much. The pool area was super with two large pools and a bar. You're right on a great beach with not overly large waves. The food was very good with nice staff. The rooms were large but the beds were rocks with the shower being very bad. My shower was ok but when my wife got in there was only hot water and it kept turning off on it's own. The floors seemed somewhat clean. Bottom line I think as long as you were out of the room you'd like the place fine.

wonderful place

we didn't know what to expect from some reviews, but turns out it was a great place, we had an issue with our toilet not flushing and air conditioner not working very good, 1 call the next morning and everything was fixed, we did not wait long at all for them to come, great service, staff very good, buffet restaurant was excellent as well as the 2 a la carts,the beach is very nice , pool bar was good. will absolutely return, loved it.

very nice hotel and vacation

the hotel is pretty small and well maintained. It's very, very clean... I was really surprised, how many cleaning girls are there, and it looks like they are hard working non-stop 24 hours.the people int the hotel there are open and friendly.... but not outside... it's HondurasI like so much many things there: buffet right on the beach, wild nature, birds in the morning, waves on the beach, nice entertainment team, volleyball on the beach, extra-activities: Cayo-Cochinos, extraordinary canopy with bath in geothermal water... and many other thingsthe only thing I don't like - weekend, where it's open to local people, there are a lot of them and they are pretty messy everywhere... on the beach, in buffet, in the pool

Overall a good vacation

We overall enjoyed our new years eve vacation here. Our room was pretty basic but we spent most of our time by the pool. But we did have an issue with running our fan and the AC at the same time as it would randomly click so we would turn on one or the other. Also only 1 English channel on the TV so we brought out iPad and watched Netflix at night. Pick an "ocean view room" or at least go to the second floor. Also we were to the left side of the lobby (when you look from the inside of the building towards the pool) and couldn't get wifi in our room so we had to go into the lobby to access it. We heard people on the right side did get wifi in their room though. It was very quiet at the start of the vacation (not a lot of people there) and the beach was completely private, no people trying to sell anything and you can walk for quite some time, but there were sand mites at times (itchy). We really enjoyed the food. I would compare the actual resort (i.e. amenities) to resorts in Cuba as it was all kind of basic and a little worn down but the food outshines Cuban resort food by a long shot!! I wish that they had an adults only pool/area because the pool did fill up quite quickly in the afternoon with kids jumping around and we really just went to relax. We were also there as a couple (no kids) and this did feel much more like a family resort because of the amount of families there when we went. We also wish they had more then 1 bar, they never opened the beach bar which was disappointing because it was such a pretty spot and really could be used as another restaurant location or bar. The service at the a'la carte was wonderful and overall the service was good and quick. We really enjoyed the Japanese a'la carte and the buffet was also great, never short on new salads/sides and they always had 4 different types of meat with lunch and dinner. Be prepared to eat Central American food, yes they do serve some "american" food but we both really liked when they did more traditional food from their region. We likely wouldn't go back (we have never gone back to the same place twice anywhere) but if you can get a deal for $700-850/pp then it would be worth it in my opinion when I compare it to similar resorts in Cuba at the same cost.
