We went to this place only because other hotels in Tela area were fully occupied. When we decided to pay 70USD which normally would be enough for 3-5 nights for us, we expected something special.
We had a very bad first impression made by an older American-looking manager. I understand that in Central America there is little trust among people and you have to pay when checking-in and not when checking-out. We have only little money in our daily pocket, so we needed to take it from another purse hidden in our luggage. The manager did not want to let us into the cabin so we could intimately unpack our luggage and hand over money. This was really strange and not welcoming.
The cabin itself is nice and the atmosphere is very relaxing within the hotel. However, if you can afford staying in this place you will not appreciate rundown village surroundings. If you are a backpacker - you probaly will enjoy it.
I hated the dog which belongs to the hotel manager and runs around the property unleashed. He barkled during the night waking us up around 5:00. I was too sleepy to find and kill the noise source.
Breakfast is very basic - just coffee, some fruit and yoghut with cerals. I come from a country where breakfast is a very important meal and is not just a croissant like in France. We ate everything we found and were still hungry.
Please, read other reviews. The place has a great potential and maybe we just had bad luck coming during manager's bad day.
if you still decide to go there and want to use your GPS device, go to N 15,81407 W 87,40960 - the location written at their website is incorrect.
