Paradise Found
Ranked #10 of 35 La Ceiba B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 February 2010

Our parents were kind enough to let us stay at their beachfront property, and we were lucky enough to have this place just a short beach walk away. Dante and Kristin are caring and fun hosts, and the food is addictive! All with an amazing view from the 2nd story champa. We'll be back for sure!

Dante and Kristin are the "hostess with the mostest!" You can't ask for a more intimate experience and a Palapa on the beach to die for. You can dine within 50 feet of the surf and sunset, and the rooms are clean and cozy. You can walk out the gate and have endless miles of beach to walk. Scuba diving is provided at a very affordable rate with only a short boat ride out to the islands for a world class diving experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Paradise Found located right on the beach overlooking Cayos Cochinos islands for 12 days. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the two bedrooms tha the owners Kristin and Dante rent out. The rooms were really nice with a queen pillowtop bed, a/c, tv, fridge, safe, microwave and alot of storage to put away all our suitcases and clothes. There is even a laundry room on site. The property is beautifully landscaped and completly secure. They even have an armed guard that watches the property at night. The best part of Paradise Found were Kristin and Dante and their warm and welcoming personalities. They definetley went beyond the call of duty to make sure we had an amazing time. The food prepared by Dante personally is excellent. You will not find a better place to eat while visting the area. Everyday, Dante heads to La Ceiba to buy fresh ingrediants for the upcoming meals. The food is fresh and the portions are huge. I even ate salad every day as he buys hydroponic lettuce from Roatan. Some of the menu items include collosal hamburgers, baby back ribs, homemade lasagna, huge onion rings, etc.The beer is perfectly chilled, the wine is excellent and the rum is the best. The restaurant is in the palapa overlooking the Carribean. You will not find a better spot for your Honduras vacation. If you are staying at Helens, Le Canadian or any other area accomodations you will not want to miss a visit to Paradise Found. We recommend calling ahead if you are planning on having lunch or dinner so they know you are coming.

This place is a great Bed and breakfast to stay in. From the minute you walk in the door you feel welcome and like one of the family. The rooms where really nice and it was definatly good to get hot water and air conditioning. The owners are great people who will do their best to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Highly recomended if you are looking for somewhere to stay in La Ceiba and you are right on the beach so it is great to get out for a swim or a sunbathe.

We recently visited an area of Honduras called Sambo Creek in La Ceiba for our honeymoon.

Coming from the busy and often rushed lifestyle of Cambridge MA, it was a true treat to have a relaxed dinner at Paradise Found on both nights that we were in Sambo Creek. We had just gotten to La Ceiba and we were very tired from the wedding and travel, and Dante' and Kristin were kind enough to open Paradise Found, just for us. We spent hours on the deck watching the waves come in as it slowly got darker, hanging out and talking with Dante' and Kristin. I have not felt that relaxed and welcomed in months.

Now for the serious stuff...the food and drinks!

The home made drinks were quite invigorating, and the fresh caught fish was seasoned to perfection. I still dream about this dish...I even got it the next day with the Bruchetta(Spelling?)

My wife had a vegetarian dish which she loved as well. It was al dente angel hair pasta with freshly grilled vegetables in olive oil and garlic.

The food, atmosphere, and scenery here is amazing. I highly recommend it. There are mountains in the background, and the restaurant is RIGHT on the ocean, and as can be imagined, the sunsets are quite beautiful.

This is my first trip advisor report! I hope that if you are in the area, you can experience this fantastic restaurant as well!

My wife and I were staying on Roaton when someone mentioned Cayos Cachinos. Decided we had to dive there. We got a ride from the ferry to Sambo Creek and decided to stay at Paridise Found, because that was where the boat would leave from the next day. Upon arriving at Paridise Found we met Dante, within minutes we were part of the family. Dante could leave Honduras today and be a gourmet cheif tommorrow, must try the "blackened robalo", amazing!!! After a week without A/C or hot water Pardise Found was a welcome sight. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, and Dante even let us borrow a couple of DVD's. After a day of diving the most prestine reef I have ever seen, we had what could have been the best hamburger I have ever had. We had plan to stay only one night but decided to stay on for one more. Dante and Kristin drove us up the mountain to a hot spring and then gave us a ride into La Ceiba. Can't say enough good things about this place. Friendly, safe, clean, great food, reasonable price, beautiful beach, and did I mention the food? Thanks again Dante and Kristin we will be back!
