We just recently returned from a trip to Honduras and stayed 2 nights at Helens. The hotel is a 15-20 minute drive East from La Ceiba just on the outskirts of Sambo Creek. We really enjoyed our stay at Helens.
The hotel is on the beach in a great location right on the beach. Sambo Creek is a 5 minute walk up the beach where you can find other restaurants etc. The hotel is also in close proximity to the ecotourism of the La Ceiba area such as ziplines (just down the road), Pico Bonito, white water rafting etc. Jack from the hotel can set you up with any excursions you wish to take and can ususally get a better deal for you.
Jack upgraded us to one of the cabins as we had our 2 young children with us. The cabin was nice with a kitchen area with fridge and stove, bedroom with 2 beds, living room, a/c and fans. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed.
Jack and his staff were absolutely amazing to us and our kids. They went out of their way to make sure the stay was enjoyable and were happy to help whenever they could.
The restaurant had good food with a good selection of items. Food and beverages were reasonably priced. Make sure you try Jacks famopus pancakes in the morning.
Our stay was great. The rooms are very reasonably priced and Jack and his staff treat you like family. I would definately recommend staying here.
