Ohla Stanley from paradise. Thank you for taking time to review our little corner of the world. Got your email about coming back down for another 3 weeks. Mae and I are looking forward to seeing you two again. We love the jokes you tell. Can't remember laughing that much in years. The pool holds water now so getting wet is no problem. The beach is growing again after the storms of January washed much of it away. Also I added a couple of new meals to the menu that I think you might enjoy. See you soon.

I have stayed with Mike & Mae twice now, and will go back anytime I need to get away from La Ceiba. The food is excellent, and plentiful. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. Access to the beach just outside the gate, pool and comfortable hammocks outside the rooms. I have always been treated like a family member, not an outsider.

On arriving we initially felt that the location was a little exposed and unsafe, as it wasn't close to any other tourist places - but it was the opposite! It was quiet yet secure, especially with there being a night guard. Mike was very accommodating with our needs, friendly and served the most amazing meals - which were massive and at a great price (we found meals outside were generally overpriced). We had two joining rooms with the en-suite in between. Although Mike and Mae are working hard on renovations this wasn't a deterrent to staying - the hospitality is wonderful, it felt like home and we will return again if we get to visit the area.

Thank you for taking time out of your life to give a review of our B&B. I enjoyed having the three of you here. I wish that Mae had been here to meet you during your visit. Maybe the next time. I look forward to seeing all of you again. By the way the pool is now painted again and holding water like it should. Hope you have the time again to visit us on the beach.

I had the wonderful opportunity of staying at Ensuenos Del Mar during a trip in August. Mike and Mae made our stay exceptional going out of there way to make us feel at home. The B&B is like a home away from home, located in a safe and secure part of La Ceiba you wake up to a spectacular view of the ocean, the sounds of the waves and MIke's delicious fresh breakfast. The breathtaking view from the second floor is spectacular and simply sitting there for a few minutes will make you wish you lived there. I traveled with my younger sister who has special needs and I loved Mae's charisma around her and the fact that they were so loving to her.
The B&B itself is beautiful but what makes this place exceptional is Mike and Mae and the love that they put into there home. You arent just another person staying there, you become part of the home. Thanks Mike and Mae for such a great time in Honduras, hope to see you soon!!

We had a chance to tour the Ensuenos del Mar SA Bed & Breakfast owned by Mike and Mae, a beautiful building with an unbeatable view of the ocean and tropical flora and fauna in the area of La Ceiba. Mike and Mae's B&B is homey and peaceful, from the hammocks swaying in the breeze by the pool, to the second floor deck with breathless views of the ocean on three sides, to the wonderful menus and tropical drinks they supply. Comfort and relaxation is the motto here for guests. In addition, Mike and Mae are a wealth of information and knowledge when it comes to finding adventure in the area - diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, hiking, white water rafting, as well as points of interest for shopping and sightseeing. We recommend that vacationers take advantage of this reasonably priced paradise that will fully refresh and reinvigorate.

What a great place to enjoy the Caribbean breeze while watching the sun set and sipping on a fresh drink from Captain Mikes bar. Captain Mike cooked up some outstanding meals while Mae made us feel at home. Mike and Mae were very helpful in helping us plan our days of tourist sites to visit, which including a trip to the Cay Islands. My only regret was it ended to soon. I would like to think the staff for making my our stay one of my best memory ever111111111111

Thank you for your review Billy. We are still learning what real service is but I think we are going in the right direction. When you come back in October you will find a few things have improved. Gone is the peeling paint, noisey a/c units and the squeek in my left knee lol. The squeek is still there. Mae came up with a new conch soup receipt yesterday that is such an improvement over the last one you won't think the last batch was soup at all. Again, thank you for your review and we'll see you soon. Oh, bye the way I found a place downtown that has a great selection of wine from Chilie, France and the US. Looking forward to opening a few bottles to do a quality taste test.

If you are thinking about taking a nice peaceful vacation this place will do it for you. We had an amazing time. Great hosts and friendly guests. The food was delicious. There homemade Lasagna paired with the nice glass of red was speechless. The sunsets were to die for from the screen room while unwinding from the day. It was like home away from home with out the work and of course the location. Nothing better than being on the beach!!! Love B&B's!!! No hotel/motel comes close to the quaintness and family friendly service you get from staying at one. Put this one on your list you wont regret it. A+++++ Can't wait to go back!!! Staying longer next time!!!!!Thank you Mike and Mae for such a wonderful time!!!

BOY DO WE HAVE YOU FOOLED. NOT. Thanks you for your commenets and i hope the next time we see you it's for a longer stay. We enjoyed you and your family. Since you left we replaced all of the a/c units, ceiling fans, beds and bedding for your confort. Still waiting for the pool repair person to show up. He promised this next week for sure. By the way, we started repainting the outside of the Villa. If you get lost it's the blue one at the end of the street on the beach. Already looking forward to your next trip. Thanks,
Captain Mike
