This is a fairly nice all inclusive resort along the north coast of Honduras just east of La Ceiba. The rooms are clean and the service is great. They have a great buffet provided for your meals. Wifi is provided at the hotel. I have stayed here a couple of times and always look forward to it. If I am... More

Just returning from our trip Jan 12-19 2015 my family and I had a great vacation. To be honest we were very afraid of what we were getting into when we read the reviews posted right before we were supposed to leave, so I wanted to write a review that truly reflected Palma Real. The Resort -Smaller in size but... More

The hotel was average. We found it to be dated and with upgrading needed. Our room was comfortable with a nice view of the ocean. The food was good but it didn't vary too much, especially at the buffet. We enjoyed the a la carte. The beach was nice and was clean. The hotel staff were lovely and friendly. The... More

Positiv: - Very clean - Super service (I'll never find waters (rices) that nice and quick) - Incredible view on the mountains. - Wine served from 10 to 1 (I never saw this before) - Free phone calls (front desk) overseas - The buffet is not so big but everything is very good. At 6h30 am, you can see the... More

Went to a New Year's Eve party and I must said it was blast! The all you can eat buffet was decent, all you can drink alcohol was good, and the live music on the beach was amazing. If I'm there again, I would go back. Just a side note, most people who were there were mostly family and not... More

For the price we paid and we were over Christmas holiday not a good experience. Nothing special for Christmas. Bad management off the staff(dinner time no waiter came to our table)We cleaned the table and take beer from the fridge. No English, also the resort is more for locals(bad manners-went in water put my towel on the hammock and they... More

I got trip advisor just to review this place. My fam took a trip to this hotel for 5 days and let me tell you, they don't care about your comfort. We didn't have water for 2 days! They wouldn't even compensate us or even apologize for the issue. The beds had some bugs in them and the bathroom showers... More

If you are traveling to La Ceiba, this is the place you have to stay. First, you have to know what to expect when traveling to Honduras. There are plenty of beautiful places to see and things to do as long as you are willing to overlook some of the things you will encounter after you leave the confines of... More
