Hotel Villa Concha Mar: View of the City with Rooftop Pool
Like many hotels in Honduras, the owner of this place is an expatriate American whose Honduran wife lived many years in the USA, then they returned in their autumn years to run this business. Originally, the concrete and rebar hotel was built with much ambition, but now the second owner is ill and the hotel up for sale once again. Also, in the past security was a major problem here, so iron doors seem to be everywhere. The interior of the rooms are spartan and nearly without windows, despite the opportunity for a great view across the city. Nevertheless, service was good and the room adequate enough for an overnight stay, which is all we needed since the more pleasant tourist island of El Tigre is not far away. For those weak in Spanish language skills, this place will be a refuge within a part of Honduras where English speakers are relatively hard to find.
We arrived at night, and so there was some shifting around of vehicles as I was usher into the back secured parking lot. The hotel has 3 floors of rooms, with floors 4, 5, and 6 being devoted to the swimming pool, restaurant, and viewing patio. But, there's no elevator, so we had to drag our bags up to the 2nd floor where our tiny room was located.
The interior room image shows no blankets, but its true that in this climate none are needed. The window A/C worked fine but was loud enough that my wife turned it off for awhile. There was no hot water, but then, again, in this climate none is really needed.
What really made this restaurant was the rooftop swimming pool and restaurant/bar. See the tip on the restaurant on this page. The rooftop also provided great views of the city. Prices are very reasonable in this part of Honduras. We paid a total of 736L that included all taxes and service tip.
