“Great hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Everyone was very friendly. Roger was able to help us get to places in the afternoon or give us advice for site seeing. The food presentation was excellent and very colourful. We were able to try many traditional foods as well as some we were more used to. It was only a short walk to town to visit the many interesting stores.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end I think would be a little quieter if you want to sleep in when others are havin...

My husband and I, and our Labrador pup, have made a road trip through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. Hacienda la Esperanza was without a doubt the highlight of our trip. Rodger has a special talent to make you feel right at home and he's like a warm friend you forgot you had. We loved the Old Spanish colonial style of the house. The whole place looked very well maintained and immaculately clean. The King size bed in our suite was the most comfortable we ever felt. We own a small B&B Hacienda El Sol in Mexico and we think that Rodger really understands what it means to run a B&B and entertain your guests and make them feel special. Rodger has a special place in our heart.

Great place to stay. You couldn't find a better host than Rodger. Besides being delightfully entertaining, he gave us valuable information to make our stay in Honduras safe and enjoyable. The breakfasts are filling and delicious, and the rooms are clean and inviting. I considered Hacienda la Esperanza my little "Enchanted April" of Honduras.

Hacienda la Esperanza was my home away from home and it couldn't have been a better stay. Waking to the songs of various birds prompts you to explore the great outdoors and view their beautiful colours. Our rooms with hot water and Americanized plumbing were spacious and clean. Very relaxing sitting on the porch watching the water flow in the fountain and entertaining on the nights of guitar playing and singing. Good variety of food and nicely presented. Owners and staff made me feel at home accommodating us in every way. Close to the Ruins, McCaw Mountain, zip lining and walking distance to town. Wifi also available. B&B helps support the community. I would recommend a stay at Hacienda la Esperanza to anyone traveling to Copan.

Room Tip: The rooms I viewed were all good.

I was completely satisfied with my stay at Hacienda La Esperanza. Here's why.
Clean spacious rooms - Relaxing atmosphere - Great Food - Friendly staff - Secure environment - Free WiFi - Plumbing built to North American Standards
I also enjoyed watching a variety of colourful birds drink from the fountain and perch in the trees in front of the porch. I will stay there again, and would recommend it to my friends.

When you travel a great deal, you meet and remember good people. This happened at Hacienda Esperanza with Rodger, who runs the place. He is such a character and such a storyteller--he is the perfect foil and fit for a morning breakfast chat before embarking into the timeless smile of Copan Ruinas. The facilities were modern and roomy. The doors were unique and secure. The fountain kept a soothing and methodical gurgle in the background. The breakfast by Siappa was homemade and delicious. The dog--Jack--barked a little too much for my taste in the night, but he was just doing his job on a Saturday night. And 100% of all room rentals go to support the medical clinic for the poor that is located on the premises. Copan is a marvelous place to visit, and you will be on solid footing when choosing to stay at Hacienda Esperanza

Room Tip: La Chacha was near the fountain and the bed was comfortable for my wife and me.

The Hacienda is a very cool place that has the look and feel of a step back in time. Difference being it has all the upgrades and conveniences of a modern building. Hot and cold water in shower and sink, which is rare in Central America. From the time we were met at the bus station, by Rodger, till the time we left if felt like visiting with family. We had our choice of breakfast content and the time we wanted to eat. Everything was great!! I have not had a better nights sleep in quite a while. It was very quiet and comfortable.
The fact that this B&B supports children care in Copan is also a great testiment to the owner and his commitment to the area. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone that is traveling to Copan Ruinas.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hacienda La Esperanza (The hacienda of hope), the only bed and breakfast in all of Honduras, or perhaps the world, whose sole reason for existing is to help the indigenous poor of Honduras. Tourists who stay with us find that we are donating back 100% of all room revenues to support our medical clinic to treat the Mayan Chorti Indians of Central America, who are some of the poorest people on the planet. Indeed, Hacienda La Esperanza has a cause worth supporting. This Spanish Colonial Estate is a welcome relief for many travelers who come to Central America, and it is known for its incredible attention to detail. For example every component of the Hacienda had to be made by hand from authentic period materials From the hand crafted iron work, to the it lovely antique rustic furniture, you will feel as if transported back in time to the late part of 18th century Central America. As you look around you will discover that the Hacienda La Esperanza is filled with all sorts of period antiques, as well as original painting from some of the best artists in Honduras. Visitors are inspired by the peaceful setting of the Hacienda, and often remark about the way the way the world seems to take on a slower pace the moment they arrive. Abundant green vistas, lovely flowers, and numerous native birds, top off the picture perfect effect. With great attention to service, details, and a cause that helps others, you have the winning combination that defines the spirit of Hacienda La Esperanza. Ours is a mood of spirit, combined with a deep respect for our guests. The term "mi casa es su casa" is not a cliche at the Hacienda La Esperanza. We really mean it, and when you enter our gates you become a member of the family.. We care about your needs, and will do everything in our power to see that you are amazed and enchanted with everything about the Hacienda. The heart of the Hacienda is found in our Kitchen. Here we make the magic that you expect. Our breakfasts are famous, and our Honduras dishes and desserts will make your mouth water. All of our vegetables come either from our own organic gardens or from the local markets. All of our guests are free to enjoy our homemade bread at any time. Upon request we are always happy to brew you a cup of our special organic coffee that is grown in the mountains nearby. All of which is complimentary. If you seek, you will find that we are into wildlife and fauna. Here we value, and work in harmony with nature to bring an incredible experience to you. We are very popular with the birding set, and the Hacienda has been listed as a Central American hot spot with sighting of up to 36 different species of birds here on the estate grounds. We are located just outside of the town of Copan Ruinas. The walk into the town is 5 minutes and we offer complimentary rides to town as well as many of the sites. The advantage of this is the serene quietness and great sleep that our guests talk about. The entire Hacienda is enclosed private and gated, with secure parking for all of our guests. ... more   less
