Very well kept. Clean and staff are super friendly. It's a smaller resort, so nothing is very far away no matter where you are. Staff do their best to keep people entertained with dancing and games on the beach. Food was great, always a variety. Rooms are super clean. Never had a problem with the water, as some people have stated. Always had hot and cold. Went on a few excursions. I would defiantly recommend the zip lining and hot springs. You cannot do this anywhere else in the world for less than $100cnd. One of the highlights of my trip. The snorkelling is awesome. They take you to cayos cochinos, and the water is beautiful. Lunch was served by a family on one of the islands. Very cool. Just be aware of the kids trying to get you to buy things. Learn to say no and walk away. All in all I had a great time. Just watch out for the jellyfish on the beach. A few people were stung while swimming.
We stayed in a villa. Started off on the wrong foot, the villa did not have electric power and had not been cleaned. After a couple of hours of pressuring management the issues were addressed. Overall setting and concept is nice, there are many instances of items falling into disrepair due to lack of maintenance. We brought our own food so I did not get a chance to sample the hotel's food. Putting the maintenance issues aside, we had a good time. The New Years beach party with live music and fireworks was fun. All facilities, including beach and pool never felt overcrowded even though the hotel and villas were fully booked.
If you are looking for hotel, after hotel after hotel similar to Mexico then do not go here. This is a pristine and very private location. There is literlly no other resort on the beach. The rooms are very well appointed, large and clean. The have a very spanish flare to them. The Resort Grounds are beautiful, clean and well kept. Similar with the pools, well kept and clean. There is really only one bar, but they will do anything to assist you. They were making ceaser's (we brought Clamatto Judice) and Paralysers by the end of day one. And it is never busy so you dont have to wait. The food was fantastic. a good variety, however it does repeat every so often. The chicken wings are excellent. The snack bar also serves decent items all afternoon. The 2 A la Carte resteraunts are a very interesting ride to the other side of the resort. The food is very good. The Salmon with creamed Shrimp sauce was to die for and the shrimp tempura just as good. The A la carte resteraunts are only open Wed, Thurs, Fri. The excursions were incredible. The snorkel adventure and the zipline adventure are well worth the small fee. The staff were also very helpful. The Sunwing rep was first class. So, if you want a private, smaller and very seculuded resort with excellent service and food, then say yes to the Palma Real Beach Resort. Oh yah, it is in the rain forest region, so it does rain. We found that the best sun tanning was first thing in the morning around 9:00-11:00. Enjoy..
After I had booked my vacation and had already paid for it, I started reading the comments of this place. After reading the one star comments, I was left with mix feelings not expecting a good accommodation. But I was hopping for the best since I noticed that most bad comments were made around 2013. Thank goodness I was right. This place is great, employees treated my wife and I very nicely. The room was in 3-4 star shape. Even though the room had central A/C thermostat, it only controlled A/C shutdown temperature, but the cold air temperature is controlled by the Hotel's maintenance crew, which was a little too hot for our comfort (80F) even though we had our thermostat in 75F. A quick run to the front desk fixed the issue and in no time we had 72F-75F cool temperature controlled by our thermostat. Hotel serves Buffet Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, practically all you can eat scenario. Food was always fresh, abundant and delicious. On our 3 day stay, soups and meats were always different for lunch and dinner. Don't expect seafood platters like shrimp and lobster, expect fish filets and clam soup instead, but they are delicious. A word of advice, don't try to eat all the menu on your first day, you will have plenty of time to try everything if your stay is for at least 3 days, so take your time and enjoy. The beach was clean, with tanning chairs on the coast and around the pools. Night entertainment was poor, so don't expect Broadway level here, but the entertainment crew does a superb job on keeping guest entertained during the day hosting beach and pool volleyball games, pool, pingpong table, beach soccer and they even entertain kids in the pool and sand castle building on the beach. The hotel crew deserve a 5 star rating. WiFi service is free and very disappointing, it's very slow. Snacks such as hotdogs, hamburgers, fresh fruits and drinks are always available between meals. At night there is always latin music at the beach side if you want to go dancing, but is not loud enough to distract you if you want to sleep, at least where our room was located. Pools were clean and refreshing. I would recommend this place for a calm get away.
First time in Honduras, weather was disappointing, rain 4 out of 7 days and Christmas celebrations a bare minimum.Room spacious and breathtaking views, had a hammock on the balcony and no chairs or table. Beds comfortable, 2 double beds and large wardrobes, but little amount of hangers for clothes. Small flatscreen television, if control not in room it means a trip to the lobby desk. NO coffeemaker /tea in room (infact the only place to get tea is at breakfast in the buffet, none at the snack bar!!) No iron or board in room and no fridge. We did manage to get a fridge but do not expect prime model. Safety deposit box in room, either with a key or electronic, we had both after having to move rooms during our week stay. We had NO hot water for 3 nights but it was sorted out with the help of the Nexus rep. MarieCruz. A very helpful person.The maid service was excellent and they appreciated our small gifts daily, after all it was Christmas. The workers were very attentive but did not get too involved with the people. Food was a little repetitive, buffet was basic for all meals but same fruit each time (papaya, watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple, sometimes bananas).There are 2 à la carte restaurants, Italien and Oriental, both not bad and good service buttoo far to walk and have to take a trailer to get there.Day activities were few and far between and always near the only bar there is on site. The night life is minimal, no bar in the lobby area to sit and be served by waitresses before dinner.Excursions were available but because of the rain some were cancelled. Managed to go to the Park Pico Bonito and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The trip to the town of La Ceiba was dampened by the continual downfall of rain. Was disappointed with this trip because the place has so much potential, even have villas for rent and sale, this tends to be the main attraction and feel everything else is secondary.
