The Lodge and Spa at Pico Bonito
Ranked #1 of 22 Hotels in La Ceiba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 May 2014

A group of 8 us just spent six wonderful days in Honduras exclusively at Pico Bonito. I chanced to connect with James Adams at a Birding Festival and was invited to stay at the Lodge. The individual cabins lend a special touch to our stay as we awoke to the dawn chorus of singing birds. A comfortable walk down to the dining and reception area enhanced our experience. All of the staff bent over backwards to meet our needs and respond to our requests. Oh - and did I mention the welcome to Pico Bonito cocktail upon our arrival? The trip from the airport is a little over two hours, but the transport was prompt and efficient and we traveled in an air conditioned van, complete with pillows and soft drinks. Many activities are offered through the Lodge and arrangements can be made before arrival, including snorkeling trips, escorted hiking to the water falls and many birdwatching trips. If you are into birding as we are, this is the place to be.

Room Tip: I stayed in Cabin #2 which is fairly close to reception, pool, and dining areas. I found the closer...

I returned to Pico Bonito in March. This time I took my wife and our two college kids. This place is like heaven to me but I wasn't sure how my wife would like it in the Honduran rain forest. She loved it here. This place is even better than I remembered it. The accommodations are first class and the service is over the top. When I thought I wanted something, it would be there. The food is improved from the last time here (and it was good then.)

Room Tip: All the cabins are great...we had an air conditioner but didn't need it.

This small eco friendly lodge of 22 cabins is a bird watching paradise with 408 different birds who call this lodge home. From the second you walk into the lobby and are offered a cold towel and a welcome beverage the experience just keeps getting better. The staff are friendly, efficient and are there to ensure every need is met! The Chef, restaurant and the Serving Staff are AMAZING! We actually used the adjective orgasmic to describe some of the food. The porches of the lodge and restaurant provide a place to relax as well as bird watch and meet your fellow guests. The local naturalist guides are Amazing, especially Jose. The cabins have every thing you need and the amenities are wonderful. The grounds are a gardeners paradise. Birds abound at every angle. Carlos took care of us in the Morning and Donello at night, great service with a Smile!

Room Tip: We had cabin 21, one of the farthest from the lodge. We loved sleeping to the sound of the rushing r...

This was our 5th visit to the Lodge and we look forward to many more! The entire experience is first rate! The cabins provide serene comfort with good beds, hot showers, nice linens, robes, slippers, etc. the walkways are lovely and well tended. The pool area is gorgeous as is the lodge itself. The restaurant has great food, lovely ambience and a wonderful, helpful staff. From the welcome drink to departure, the entire staff makes sure you are well cared for.

Then, of course, there are the birds! Spectacular! The self guided hikes are beautiful, but the guides add a whole new experience. They are so knowledgeable and accommodating. As an avid birder, this is really why I come over and over. What fun! For those who aren't hikers, there are plenty of birds to be seen from the restaurant and pool areas or from the comfort of your private hammock on the deck of your cabin.

I almost forgot to mention the natural swimming holes. FabulousM

Room Tip: Ask for a room along the river trail by the feeders. But they're all great!

Since our arrival Rolando gaved us proper instructions on were to park and how the security was inside the hotel. We actually arrived by ourselves but they can perfectly pick you up at the airport. The staff at front desk were very nice and welcoming. The room we had was perfect had lots of big city amenities which make our stay more pleasurable. My husband made reservations for a couples dinner, unfortunately it rained so we didnt had it at the Corinto Deck instead they nicely arranged it inside the restaurant. Danilo served us that night and he was so kind and proper. He even gaved us coconut bread for us to take. (Because its delicious). We did make the adventure to make the Loop Trail by ourselves we got lost twice so we recommend you take a guide. But we have a map so in the end we made it through. Take water and the proper gear. Overall our stay was wonderful and we highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in early March. As an avid birder, Pico Bonito had long been on her wish list for places to visit. An unexpected week off in our month-long mission trip provided this opportunity, and we hopped on it. The time there was delightful in every way - superb birding, outstanding guides on her early AM birding hikes (Jose was simply great and his English fluency an added plus!), great birding right on the lush grounds as well during the rest of the days. Our accommodations were excellent, the restaurant very good (best cordon bleu we've ever eaten!), the staff friendly and helpful, and the other guests congenial. We'd love to return for a second visit!

Room Tip: Room 2 is conveniently close to everything - pool, restaurant and main lodge.

We stayed here on a package that included meals and activities. We enjoyed them all - although the hike to Unbeleavable Falls was challenging. The cabins were spacious and comfortable. Only suggeston is a smal fridge in the room to keep water chilled. The staff was very freindly. We liked the food quite a bit, and they were able to accomadate a gluten-free diet. The grounds were fantastic. Always felt safe. And of course we liked all the birds and other creatures! The place is expensive, though.
