We stayed at the Coral View Beach resort in january 2014. Rainy season was late and weather was not all that good. I am a scuba dive, so I did a dozen of dives. My girlfriend is not, she had a hard time, she was hoping for sun and sand. She didn't get much of each. There is nothing that feels like a beach, only stairs at the end of the dock to go snorkeling on the reef, which is great.
The room......our room was the one called the PENTHOUSE, I figured it was going to be the best room in the place. That room need an urgent refresh, the mattress is good for the garbagge, the linnens are so worn out the you can see through them, the bug screens are thorn off, when there is one on a window. The closing mecanism on the windows are not functional, the window in the bathroom doesn't close. My girlfriend was eaten by sand flies inside the room, and one night a big cockroach invited itself in.
The people there are very nice, very good service all around, from the cleaning lady, the cook, the hostess (miss Tonya) That is why this review is hard to write.
We had a problem going back. The resort had arranged for a transport that never showed up so we missed the ferry. Tonya arranged for a private plane to pick us up and take us to LaCeiba so we could catch our flight back.
In conclusion, the people are great, the hotel is not so hot. GUYS.....don't take princess there, you ll hear about it for a while.
