Our first time in Honduras and traveling with 2 kids (8 & 12.) This part of the country is beautiful and the resort beautifully set within it. We stayed in the condos/houses portion as opposed to the all inclusive hotel, although it's all kind of mixed together. The first house that we were given did not have a working AC.... More

This place can either be a place where you can relax and enjoy or a place where you can party and have a great time. The staff is friendly. The location is away from the city but the view is beautiful with the mountiains. Beers are limited to national beers but hey, oh well. The tours provided are pretty neat... More

Our family had a great stay at one of the villas at Palma Real. There was a problem with our original villa (no AC, broken fridge and microwave), and although it was a very busy week, they fixed everything quickly, and then moved us into an upgraded villa as soon as they could for the rest of our stay. Very... More

Remember that you are in a 3rd world country. What does that mean? Not first class but first rate service. AC not working? Get a different room. Limited hot water? Tough it out by enjoying the beauty of this tropical location. Stayed here with a group of teens after a week long missions trip with NO amenities whatsoever. So this... More

Nice hotel, very clean, very friendly personnel. Amazing trips offered - my favourite were Canopy line over the jungle in the mountain, the hot springs and the boat trip to the islands. The food is simple, but always fresh and tasty. I really enjoyed local cooking.

I've been coming to this hotel for the past 8 years and it's the best. I love the food, the pools, the service and the rooms. They are always so nice, and it's just spectacular. Would not change it for anything in this world.

If you want a place to relax, have great securty and enjoy the beach, this is the place. Staff is great and you can drink all the beer you want. Rest of the drinks are terrible and below average. The beach is great, soft sand, the ocean floor is great with no rocks. The pool area is Ok but kind... More
