We traveled to Caribbean Coral in Triunfo de la Cruz (Close to Tela) in February to relax and spend a few days on the beach in Honduras. This is a small family run B&B right in the middle of Coral Beach, if your are looking for something different, and can adjust to a laid back place in comfort but without the "necessities" of other hotels, like pool, wet bar and satellite TV, you just might enjoy even more of your own vacation.
When we made our reservation, we were told no deposit was needed because there was not time to do it since it was a last minute travel arrangement. It was very helpful to get an Email of what we might expect and what we should not. Pay close attention to it, because it is very accurate and you come in with the right expectations. The Map on how to get there from San Pedro Sula was also very helpful.
There are several cozy bungalows surrounding a semi open court yard and we stayed on the first one from the beach. It had two double beds, and a small bathroom with a tile shower. Service was done with care every day, with new towels since we used them at the beach often.
Breakfast was included and was delicious with fresh fruits, pastries and fresh juices. We made arrangements for diner or lunch when we were in the area. The menu is limited, but all of the dishes were home cooked and fresh. Steak was marinated in yogurt an ginger, fresh fish filet of generous portions, and whole fried fish was very tasty. You can get the food served on the beach, but we chose to have at the restaurant. Prices were reasonable.
We also liked that we were welcomed to the restaurant's refrigerator when and if we needed any cold drinks to take them on an honor system. There is a little notebook with your bungalow # to write the drinks/items you consumed, and we also used to store our own fresh fruits, we purchased along the way.
We enjoyed to have been able to walk on the beach, when almost nobody was there and on Sunday when Everybody was there. Then there were many vendors offering their services, foods, coconuts.... etc.
I have read the other reviews, and they were mostly accurate as a nice rustic place to stay with attentive service. I had no problem to pay for our stay as soon we got there, since I was expecting it, and I brought the money needed with me to do it. Since we were checking out early in the morning, we also estimated our expenses and left them with the maid, no problems doing so. It helps to speak spanish, but it is not a necessity.
