“Expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

I remember this hotel as being one of the best hotels in Tela, but I gotta say they need to pick up their step.
Don´t get me wrong, everything was clean, food didn´t get us sick, but for the price payed, I wanted more.
The room was nice, comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, clean, downside, the bathroom curtain had mold in it, and I had to shower next to it and the space was very narrow.
Food, needs a lot of improvement!! They only had 2 choices of meats fish or chicken. The chicken was dry, blah, fish was great. They really need more options. Their snack bar is very limited and if you wanted a hot dog without the toppings, they could´t give it to you, had to remove it yourself, so basically they told you to throw it away yourself...
The beach, yes clean, but I would like for them to pick up the palms that fall off the trees, coconut shells, and regular garbage that has been left behind.
On the positive side, we felt very safe, we did see security men circling the area. The hotel helps you relax, helps you forget about the troubles back home. Would go back, but the hotel needs to improve in order to stay on top of their game.

Room Tip: Choose the beach view. Waking up to the ocean view is priceless, no matter where you are.

I really love this place, have been going there since I was a little girl. The improvement they've had is amazing. Customer service was perfect, everybody was helpful and kind. The only part that I do think needs some work is the cleanliness. Specially at the beach. I do believe they should pick up the roots and garbage on the beach. That would give a prettier sight to the entire resort.

Wonderful and fun resort to relax and get away from it all. Tela is one of my favorite places in Honduras and I look forward to returning with my family. I have only been to Telemar during the off season, but found it peaceful and very relaxing. Still plenty of things to do! Honduras is a dangerous place, I highly recommend you do your research before venturing out...even with a group, and especially at night. If you know the area and especially are with people that live in Honduras, and speak Spanish, you will not be disappointed!

This place is pretty, but service is horrible. Customer service, the worst I have ever seen!!! Breakfast opened 30 minutes late every day!!!! The staff at reception is young and with no answers. Personnel at the poolside bar spent most of the time texting. Seen like a costumer service is not a priority in this place!

For a last minute decision to visit Tela after Copan Ruins, was pleasantly surprised with the recommendation from friends in Tegucigalpa to visit Tela. The hotel room was spacious, clean and a beautiful view from the balcony of the ocean. For the price, it was a good deal. Lodging and food all in one place worked out good for this mini vacation. Didn't have to leave the resort to hunt restaurants. That way had more time to enjoy the beach. Specially the sunrise!!!!

Telamar has existed for as long as I can remember. They have only improved and raised the bar for the beautiful, unique, and humble town of Tela. I grew up visiting Tela with my parents, later on with my now husband and we plan on doing the same with our kids one day. Telamar is safe, clean, and it truly carries itself with pride. From a simple visit to relax, to Quinceañera parties and even weddings, Telamar does it all and it does it not well but great! Beach is full of the very real and unique culture of Honduras. Many Garifuna people among other locals, sit by the beach to offer purchases of handmade jewelry, gifts to bring back home, food, treats, coconuts, and services such as braids and massages. Telamar is the place to go!

Room Tip: no rooms truly have a "beach" or "ocean" view...I HIGHLY recommend the pool view...

We left the resort today, so I may be still in shock, but I cannot recommend this place based on my stay there. The rooms are adequate and the pool area is superb, but the place is a Zoo for service and enjoyment of the spaces. The restaurant was always crawling with people and the food was only barely edible. I think that they have the idea that quantity makes up for tasty, quality food. Oh and we had one meal with a family of pigeons eating the remains of a meal on the table next to us. Yuk. The place is safe and well guarded if you are concerned about that. And Fantastic air conditioning. We were able to spend time on the deck chairs on the beach beside the ocean, but watch your kids closely - people careen right across the sand in front of you on ATVs. Children are allowed to drive the ATVs. The people watching on the beach is great - lots of interesting goings-on. Be prepared to be insistent if you want anything. The staff seem to ignore the guests. So enjoy the pool and the nice room.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.
