Arrived in Copan to find our other choices full, but was able to get a room here.
The hotel was recently sold and the new owners have done extensive work to the building, adding a swimming pool and a beautiful veranda, (to what was a parking area.) And they are talking about doing further renovations, (enlarging the bathrooms.) The Hotel sits on a high hill within the town, offering great views of the town, the valley and the surrounding hills.
The rooms are nice, not luxurious. Each has A/C, TV and free WiFi. Beds were very comfortable, 2 of the rooms on the second floor have small balconies that really made the rooms feel much more spacious. They also have a private, enclosed parking lot attached to the hotel, that was very secure.
My Spanish is poor, as was the manager's English, but we were able to communicate and they were very gracious. Anything we needed, they were willing to help with. The service we received was impeccable. Later thru their 10 year old son (who spoke excellent English), we found that the hotel was bought by his grandparents, and that his parents were managing it for them.
The price we paid was roughly half of what the popular hotels in Copan charge, and we used the swimming pool each day. The price alone makes the Buena Vista worth checking out, the views and the people who will take care of you, should clinch the deal.
If we would return to Copan in the near future, I would not stay anywhere else.
