A classy place to stay in Tela
We had a very pleasant couple of nights in the newer part of this large hotel/resort complex. It was arranged by our friends at Plantation Beach Resort, Cayos Cochinos, through their contact at La Ceiba's Hondu-Tours. This was a little more upscale and pricey than the majority of stays on our 2 month travels south of the border. However, after a rough night in primitive conditions at a nature preserve, the most excellent accommodations here were a welcomed treat.
Many of the staff spoke English. All were very friendly and helpful

Week 2, Part B
Unique Quality: New addition where we stayed (ultra modern, up-scale, full amenities) has "Superior Rooms" with beach front at US$110 or pool view for US$100 (1-4 persons). Standard rooms and apartments in older section run from US$70 (1 person) to multi-person villas (6-12 persons) ranging up to the top of US$270. All hotel services reportedly include swimming pools, tennis courts, golf, & sauna at no extra fee. At least new addition is wired for Internet broadband (own connecting cord required) & WiFi is available gratis.
The swimming pool area (2 main pools, kids slide/play area, bigger water slide, "wet" bar, etc.) is a great place for families. We enjoyed watching the kids play and enjoy the facilities. Just on the other side of our 2 story hotel building was a very clean and attractive beach.
Small clothing/souvenir shops & a Hedman Alas first class bus ticket office were conveniently located near the hotel's entrance & large main registration office.
Directions: Entrance located several blocks & across bridge west of downtown Tela ? long walk
Quant beach huts
I never stayed here, but i meet people in town that did. These little casitas are very cute and private. They stand on stilts in the sand and face the beach. The girl that i met that was staying there told me that she was paying 25 limpras per night, which is about $1.5 USD!
Unique Quality: They don't really provide much, basically a bed and a bathroom, but the staff was very friendly and offered a lot of help with directions for food, traveling, and money exchange.
Directions: Tela mar is quite famous, you can tell your taxi driver to take you to that part of the beach and they are just a short walk from the road.
