I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Villa de Soledad. We arrived from Roatan, where the owner, John, picked us up from the ferry then happily drove us for a couple errands before heading up the canyon to the house. Upon arrival, we were awed by the beauty of the place. It's a Spanish-colonial style house on a hill with wonderful views and impeccable grounds. Our room was perfect - large, well appointed, clean, and comfortable. French doors open to the lawn, with hammocks beckoning us to take a mid-day nap. The toucans apparently love the place too, so as bird lovers we loved watching these beautiful creatures try to steal John and Soledad's papaya fruits off the tree.
In terms of location, the place is great - you have lots of privacy there up on the hill, but can also walk to Omega resort/tours down the road if you're interested in sitting at a bar or eating "out."
The food here is outstanding. During our 3 night stay we had two dinners (not included in nightly price) that were fantastic (cooked by Soledad herself). The breakfasts are wonderful - lots of fruit with eggs, beans, etc.
Both John and Soledad were incredibly hospitable during our stay. We stayed up late one night talking with John and learning much about Honduras and its people. We felt like guests here, not customers. In talking with staff and guides from nearby places, it's clear that John and Soledad are highly regarded and respected there. To us, it was obvious why. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend staying there!
