“Pretty, but a disappointing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2006

We had heard good things about this hotel and needed to fly out of San Pedro Sula airport early the next morning, so we booked a room with two queen sized beds for me, my wife, and two children. But when we arrived they said they didn't have a room like that for us. So they put us in a different room with one big bed and then had to bring in two cots, which barely fit. When we went to take a shower there was no hot water! A man came in to see what was wrong, but wasn't able to fix it. We told him we really wanted a room with hot water, but they didn't get us a new room. I complained at the front desk and they offered us a slight discount on the room - $10 I think - but we would have much preferred hot water. We didn't stay there long - we arrived in the evening and left at 5 AM the next morning - so we weren't able to check out some of the amenities there, such as an attractive outdoor pool and playground equipment. The front desk was helpful in waking us up early in the morning and calling us a cab. But overall our experience there was disappointing. Incidentally, even though this is, from what we have been told, the closest hotel to the airport, the cab ride to the airport was still expensive by Honduran standards: 200 lempiras, or about $10.
