We were in a lovely bungalow which should have had great views only the balcony looked straight into the branches of the palm outside cutting off any kind of view - I suspect the sunrise might have been lovely otherwise. The room was very clean but stiflingly hot until the air con kicked in and with very poor lighting. I... More

We stayed here for one night. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff were very helpful. The buffet breakfast was included but not really up to standards. So realistically I would rate this hotel as a 3 1/2 but they don't allow that. They have a beautiful pool and garden right on the water. We really enjoyed our... More

Your boat from Puerto Barrios can drop you at the bottom of the garden! The rooms are individual cabins that are light and airy with views of the sea and pelicans in the nearby palms. Breakfast was routine but there is a nice bar/café linked to the hotel.

Our guide suggested this hotel to us and we weren't disappointed. It was beautiful, and the staff was friendly. The rooms had a great view of the water, which was nice to wake up to. Breakfast was included, which was a plus and the price was great given the great quality of the hotel!! 100% recomend this place!!

This venue was very nice with beautiful rooms but small, very clean, nice showers with hot water, large pool with view to the bay, as well as a delicious restaurant. Our only reservation from recommending this place is the hefty price. Much pricier than other locations in the area, not sure its worth the extra expense. Breakfast is also not... More

We just went for dinner in order to experience the live Garifuna music. The dining room is gorgeous but the waiters seemed depressed which was a real downer. The drinks were ok but overpriced. When the dancers and musicians arrived this big vacuous place came alive. For about an hour you will experience bursting beauty and rhythms to make you... More

I like the secluded location. The hitel is laid back with friendly caribean style service. The rooms are rustic as is the hotel and that adds to the overall experience. I would stay here again. Reasonable prices
