“up with the chickens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2008

This hotel was booked for us by our guide. We stayed 2 nights. The idea was that it would be quiet. It is on the outskirts of town and away from the commercial area, and indeed there was no loud music or traffic noise. However the neighbouring property had many chickens. The rooster crowed all night! It was very annoying to say the least.

The plus side was that the rooms were generous and clean, and for the price it was a good deal. We did not have hot water, although the other lady with us staying there had hot water in her room. So if my husband had complained to the front desk we might have rectified the situation. But at the end of the day after walking around the Copan ruins, when we arrived back and wanted to shower, the office was closed.

Being out of the way, there are no tiendas or small stores, so even to buy beer you have to go down the steep hill to town. Just remember to buy anything for use in your room before you go back up to the hotel. Also remember to bring your own toilet paper because the maid only leaves you half a roll each day. Because of the steep hill we took Tuk-tuks everywhere. But we are seniors, and the hill would likely not bother someone young and in good shape.

There is a stocked open-air kitchen in the middle of the central garden area, and plastic tables and chairs are set out as if it were a small restaurant, but it was deserted. It was not clear if this was for the use of guests, but we sat out there and drank some wine (for me) and beer(for him) before dinner both evenings and no-one bothered us. On our last day two local ladies came and started to make breakfast in the kitchen. They appeared to be making tortillas and eggs, but we went down to town for breakfast , so I can't report what their food was like.

Another thing which annoyed us was that they deliberately turned on, and left on all night, bright florescent lights in the kitchen area which shone directly into our room. The curtains were like gauze and no help with light control, so we took a bedspread and hung it up over the curtain rail to block out the light so we could try to sleep. That way we slept fitfully on and off between the cock crows.

  • Liked — Generous size of rooms. Courtyard garden to sit out.
  • Disliked — The noisy rooster next door. The right shining into the room at night.
