I have stayed at the Splash Inn for many years as, for me, it is the only place to stay in West End.
I love looking out over the sea as I take my breakfast in the morning. Lovely fresh fruit salad whilst I catch up on my mail with their free wifi. Usually in the evening I dine out at one of the many restaurants, but on my way out last night I saw the chef at the barbecue cooking some massive steaks. He said that they were beef tenderloin and that they were as tender as you can get. I decided to try one for dinner and what a steak it was. Fantastic and it was as much as I could eat - and the cost was lower than any of the other restaurants I have eaten in here. Now I know why so many of the locals dine at the Splash Inn Restaurant. As always I will be back and next time I will try something else from their extensive menu that ranges from pizzas to lobster, Lovely place, lovely people. No wonder why I love Roatan, the secret jewel of the Caribbean.
Great restaurant and dock to sunbathe on
Although I didn't choose Splash Inn for it's diving, I still found it to be a great choice. If you love diving, you'll be steps from it. The location is fabulous. Right in West End, you are a walk away from stores, bards, restaurants and the beach. The area has a small town feel with an exotic, tropical twist to it. The hotel looks great. The rooms are clean and neat and not a decent size. Staff is friendly and helpful. There's a restaurant in the lobby, it overlooks the turquoise seas and gorgeous sites. Great experience!
I loved my stay at Don Udo's!
The hotel is in a great location. It's absolutely charming! Great rooms, beautiful courtyard/garden, good restaurant, it's just adorable! The price is great as well. Everything about this place is just cute! The staff is courteous and friendly as well. Don Udo himself pitches in and helps out the front desk staff when needed.
I would LOVE to go back to this place!
I rented a house on the beach. I absolutely loved my stay at the house! The house is adorable with it's wood furniture and cleverly used space. You can hear the waves of the ocean hitting the beach as you sleep at night, best rest you'll ever get. La Ceiba is the central location for many activities so staying here enabled me to travel to Cayos Cohinos, Roatan, Pico Bonito and even to Copan for a few nights. The beach is really close but it's very rocky so bring your water shoes. It's a very relaxing and easy going stay.
Right by the ocean but the beach isn't spectacular and its really rocky so you need water shoes to get in,.
We were, ALL, treated like royalty.. Although room service took a while, everything, and everybody else were superb... Rooms cleaned and refilled each day.. Beds turned down at night... The service was fabulous, in every way..
The views were one of a kind.. The employees knew me by my name...lol... It's hard forgetting me, after the first encounter...lol... They had it all... Restaurants that covered every ethnicity.. More food than you could ever imagine.. And FABULOUS, at that...
They had something for everyone, of every age, of every race, of every taste... You could NEVER run out of things to do...
Foster's on West Bay is on an excellent location in West Bay. This is where the pros ends. Fosters is in need of a major make-over. As soon as you open the door to one of the rooms you realize you have made a mistake on your island accommodations. The rooms are aged. No TV, No radio. I was surprised that the AC worked efficiently. The first night at Fosters I was awaken by crabs and a giant roach in my room. I soon found out that the shower drains directly into a swamp in the back of the cabana and this was the source of where the roaches were getting into the rooms. A wet wash clothe into the drain at night solved the roach problem.
Location, Location. Fosters Resort sits on the best beach in Roatan Island and my cabana was approximately 25 feet from the beach and about 15 feet from Anemona Divers, Dive shop.
If you REALLY want to get away from it all, this private island in the Bay of Honduras is perfect. The island is approx one acre, with a main house, a small guest house and a small shack for the generator. Stove and fridge gas powered, indoor plumbing with cistern water (bring drinking water)
House is lovely, island is fabulous. You really feel like you're alone in paradise - palm trees, pelicans, hermit crabs and you. Totally private, with people just a radio call away (make sure the radio works before the manager leaves) You're cell phone will probably work, although I doubt you'll turn it on.
Pick up your supplies on Utila before heading out (Bush's supermarket has everything - don't buy beef!) Fridge is not huge but there was a large cooler for beer.
Upstairs in main house has two double beds, one single in a nice breezy room, downstairs is a double bed but the room can be hot out of the breeze. Guest house sleeps three but doesn't look as breezy.
This is as remote as I could have hoped for. It's not for everyone! Make sure you really get along with your travel partners because not everyone likes that much quiet.
To watch the sun rise and set on your own island is an experience everyone should have once in their life. The snorkeling is unbelievable and very safe, even if you've never snorkeled before.
I enjoyed it here. It was all-inclusive, smack-dab on a beautiful beach. Good eats, entertainment, comfy accomodations.
Hotel Presidente is a reasonable place to stay in Tela. It's opposite Parque Central, in the town centre, about a 5-minute walk from the beach. The 39 rooms have AC and TV, but they vary in standard. Try to get one overlooking the swimming pool. A double room, with swimming pool view, costs $50. Breakfast is not included.
The Seagrape Plantation Resort was the best hotel I stayed in during my travels in Central America. The 22 rooms are bright, spacious and very comfortable. There is a great swimming pool and a dive shop. It is best for couples as the rooms cost $55 per night for single or double occupancy. There are discounts for stays of 5 nights or longer and they also offer dive/hotel packages.
The Hotel Plaza Centro was the most depressing hotel I stayed in during my travel in Honduras. It is shabby and the staff seem totally unable to cope. The only thing it has going for it is a good downtown location. My advice is, don't stay here. A dirty room, in which the window wouldn't close, rendering the AC useless, cost $40, including an awful breakfast. The lobby was chaotic. The hotel commonly overbooks so don't expect them to honour your reservation.
Lauro's Hotel is a nice, friendly, family-run hotel with a good location just off Parque Central. The room I stayed in was a pretty double, with quilted bedspreads, freshly-painted walls, ceiling fan, and TV. It cost $25. Rooms with AC cost $40.
The César Mariscos Hotel and Restaurant is family-owned and operated. It features 18 rooms that open onto private balconies overlooking the boardwalk, beach, and Caribbean Sea. (Although there is one room which overlooks a paved parking lot behind the hotel and which does not have a balcony. This is the room I ended up with). Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a safety deposit box, a hair dryer, and television. There are no telephones in the rooms, but telephone calls can be made from the front desk.
Guests seem to spend most of their time on the beach, but the hotel does offer an infinity swimming pool and a jacuzzi on the second level.
In addition, the hotel has a very good beachfront restaurant specializing in local cuisine and seafood.
8 of us just returned from a wonderful trip to Roatan Honduras, and stayed at Out of the Blue on West Bay. This is a great place to stay. It's not fancy, but with the 2 Cabanas, we had 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. There was maid service every day, and the manager, Snokey was very accomodating, and helpful. She, as well as Marlon (the guy who's around everyday) speak very good english, and know the island very well. We were about 50 yards from the beach, and would spend our evenings on the deck. They have a barbecue, and the kitchen is well-equipped to cook your own meals.
Out Of The Blue is close to restaurants and bars, and with the close proximity to the beach, boredom was never an issue!
As with all of the island, there were times when the electricity would shut down, but if Marlon was there, he would get the generator going. He also taught us how to turn the generator on if he was not there.
The Mini Mart had beverages and snacks, as well as some basics that would be needed. If they did not have something, they found out where we could get it. There was also free internet.
I would recommend Out of the Blue to anyone. We plan to make a yearly trip, and can't imagine staying anywhere else. The cost was very affordable, and the hospitality we received was incredible.
The views were awesome. We would sit on the deck at sunset, and watch the sun disappear into the ocean. The beach in front of the house was all ours! We would bring our chairs down every morning, and spent the day playing in the water without any crowds.
Situated on the northern shore of Lake Yojoa, the Hotel Finca Las Glorías is located on the property of a working coffee finca, or plantation. It is one of the best and most well-known hotels in the Lake Yojoa region, and is a good base from which to explore the area.
