This place is amazing. I've been traveling to Honduras for years and years, and not only is the area (just outside of Trujillo near the village of Santa Fe) one of the most gorgeous I've seen, but the accommodations are absolutely top-notch.
Owned by a (former) Texan, the cabanas are modern and high-quality, with Sky TV, internet, indoor waterfalls, complete kitchens, and spacious porches. (The owner prefers to call them "lanais!")
All the cabanas have three bathrooms - one in each of the two bedrooms and then a main-level bath with jacuzzi tub. The decor is tasteful, and the house is so spacious and comfortable I could literally stay inside for days... if the outside wasn't so inviting as well, of course.
The restaurant "The Mystic" is absolutely the best in the area as well - all the locals, neighbors, and folks from as far away as Tocoa visit regularly, for the wonderful Tex-Mex menu, full bar (it REALLY DOES have a full bar, unlike so may other places in Honduras which just claim that,) and bi-monthly four-course gourmet lunches prepared by the German chef.
The Trujillo bay is absolutely charming (the water is so much nicer than around La Ceiba!) and you can wander right out from your cabana or from the Mystic to take a swim or float on a foam mattress while gazing at the magnificent mountains.
I seriously never wanted to leave this place. I was there for three weeks and hardly made it into town! (Though Trujillo is a very cute, colonial city, with a couple of good discotecas and a pleasant central park and historic fort.)
Banana Beach would be a great place for a wedding too - it's so scenic, spacious, quiet and private.
