“A Perfect Place”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

I would like to enthusiastically agree with all the other reviews. Villa Soledad is absolutely magic and by far the best place we stayed in our travels round Honduras. The views are stunning and we saw more beautiful birds in their lovely gardens than we had seen in the rest of Honduras. John and Soledad couldn't have been sweeter and more obliging. Soledad even changed all the furniture around in our huge and beautiful bedroom for me so that I could see the valley from the bed! The food (which included lunches and supper when requested) was absolutely wonderful too and Soledad had breakfast ready at 5am one morning when we had a particularly early bird-watching start. We were there for 3 nights and I would want to go back to Honduras simply to stay there again.

You find all three of them and more at this magnificent place! Soledad and John, this charming couple greet you at their place with arms wide open, kindness and a bunch of history facts and knowledge on the region! This is definitively a place to stay when around La Ceiba, its peculiar location makes you don't want to leave it!

What a surprise! John picked us up, showed us the historical garden of the Standard Fruit Company downtown La Ceiba and drove of towards his place. John has been writing about Honduras for two decades and knows all the inns & outs of the country.
The amazing part was that within fifteen minutes you are surrounded by nature. Dense tropical rainforest on both sides of the fresh Cangrejal river. We arrived at La Villa de Soledad (named after his sweet wife Soledad, that also cooks very tastefully) and wanted to stay longer. The room are new, huge, clean and beautiful. The house is high, so cool breeze comes in and the view over the rivervalley and jungle is amazing! We did hiking to the waterfall and rafting with Jorge Salaverri from La Moskitia Ecoaventuras on the wild river Cangrejal. We stayed two nights but surely could spend a week. Thanks John also for your interesting stories!

This place is so charming I can not resist staying there when I am visiting La Ceiba Honduras. Its like the home of Diego de la Vega (el Zorro movie) but in the middle of a jungle. The spectacular view of Pico Bonito Mountain and the energetic sound of the river Cangrejal just become magical. John, Soledad and all their family are just amazing hosts, and do not miss Soledad honduran gourmet food. The rooms are very spacious with powerful showers of fresh and pristine water from the mountain. There is plenty activities or just enjoy peacefully at the terrace in a hammock.

La Villa de Soledad was the highlight stay of our trip to Honduras. Soledad and husband John were wonderful hosts and made us feel like close friends immediately upon arrival and throughout our 2 night stay. John is well connected in the travel industry of Honduras and can answer almost any question about what to do or where to go as well as the history and politics of Honduras. Soledad was always there to make sure we had everything we needed, great Honduran food, wine, or coffee or tea first thing in the morning. Included breakfast was incredible, always with home made tortillas.
Our room was spotless, comfortable and spacious. The house and common areas were jungle luxury and despite the white water rafting, zip lines and rain forest hikes that were callling us, we could have just settled in all day and enjoyed the sights and sounds. We would have loved to stay much longer and will the next time.

What a beautiful place, open concept overlooking manicured grounds. Definite pride of ownership (which so often lacks in Central America). My room was spacious with a nice bathroom and hot water (not all hotels/lodges in the area do). Also had a set of double doors leading to my own hammock with a great view of the mountain.

I had arranged for them to come pick me up from the ferry. Some me taxis won't go up there during rainy season as you need a 4X4. Definitely worth the little extra cost, even got to learn about all the hotels/tour places along the way.

I could go on about all the little things John and Soledad did for me while I was there but the list would be quite long. They treat their guests very,very well.

I do have to mention breakfast. Beautiful plate of fresh fruits, then eggs, ham & toasts (bacon the 2nd day), tea, coffee, fresh orange juice, my mouth still waters just thinking about it. Best breakfast of my whole vacation. There places close by where you can have some lunch/dinner so the lack of restaurant isn't a big deal.

A real gem, you won't be disappointed.

Attached pictures are a bit dark as I was there during the rainy season.

Room Tip: Try to get one facing the yard.

My husband and me stayed here for two nights and we wish we have booked for many more!
Casa De Soledad is surrounded by the nature, and all you can hear is the sound of nature and the sound of river just across the house.
The owners Mr John and Soledad are a lovely couple, and they are also very helpful and kind the all time.
The food is amazing, we have been eating the best Honduran food here! Sole is a great cook and she will do anything to satisfy your requests! She made us feeling home and we where very sad to leave that magical place!
We also had the chance to return to have our last lunch there, just before our departure back home!
Mr John is also very nice and helpful and he speaks very good English.
WE DO RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE THAT IS LOOKING FOR A VERY CLEAN AND QUIET PLACE, WITH GREAT FOOD!!!

Room Tip: any room is great!
