The place has everything you need for a perfect vacation, starting with a great location in the bay of Tela. The facilities are new and well kept, friendly staff, near the town of Tela, great pool, good food, it is an all inclusive type of accomodation. I am not normally attracted to all inclusive places, but this one works very well. I go there every time I have a chance.

Me and a couple of my friends visited that hotel for one day and stayed overnight on our way to northern Honduras. Rooms was okay, the pool and the territory also kept well. No nice white-sand-like beaches (keep that in mind!) around that area.The atmosphere during the evening and night was boring, no events (probably due to low season). Also there is no any kind of good restaurants (even for extra money) or nice bras and discos. The resort is totally fenced around and there is no attractions you can go to.

Room Tip: Rooms for 1-2 persons have internal door to another room. It`s locked, but you can hear every whispe...

Dear JJRodriguez,

Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, the beaches at Tela Bay are famous for being very clean, if you would've stayed longer you would've seen it for yourself! Just a few minutes by boat you can get to Punta Sal where you can enjoy pristine white sand beaches and clean blue waters.
You probably visited us during the week on a slow day, on the weekends we have a show, karaoke and dance music until 12 pm! Looking forward to have you with us in the future.
Kindest regards,
Damaris Alvarado
Front Office Manager

The restaurant/buffet staff served my wife a glass of bleach water instead of the ice water that we had ordered. The night manager assured us that they would rectify matters After she spent the night vomiting with chemical burns, the head manager denied that the matter had ocurred and said that it was not the fault of the hotel. He indicated that the hotel did not use bleach to clean the restaurant or kitchen. I told him that i would not be paying for the night that i spent caring for my sick wife and he said that the best the hotel could do was offer a 10% discount. Ofcourse my credit card compnay, like any respectable business, did not honor the charge for that night.

This guy is a coward and a liar. He is the typical 3rd world mid level manager puke who odesnt really care about his guests, just the power play of being in charge. This hotel management is a disgrace to the hard working staff at La Ensenada that do a good job of trying to keep the place enjoyable.

The 5 days spent at the Ensenada Beach Resort was very nice and relaxing. The 2 bedroom suite we had was vey spacious, clean and beautiful. The landscape was charming and well kept. The staff went out of their way to be very accommodating. Special thanks to Anna, Maxx, Dennis, and Chef Adrian for their attentiveness. Thanks Mario, for your help in creating great new memories for my friend’s, parents’ 50th wedding anniversary celebration. My time there was fun, yet tranquil.

This all inclusive "resort" in Tela is pretty good.
Instalations are pretty nice and clean, Beach is not crowded, kept clean and has a nice relaxing spot between coconut palms and pine trees!
The food, well it could be better, but compared to what they serve in the "flagship" hotel in Tela, it is much, much edible.
Property is not that big, so if you book a lengthy stay you just might get bored unless you book a tour to punta sal (an awesome place accesible by boat only with pristine beachs, coral reefs and great wildlife) and a tour to one of the most amazing botanical gardens (Lancetilla).
Service in La Ensenada es pretty good, staff is friendly, although if crowded, don't expect to get promptly attended in the tables at the beach front.
Also carry insect repellent...
