Needed a quick getaway with the wife, so we went here cause she loved it many years ago - and it was fantastic. Everything was very well kept and looked nearly brand new; from eating areas, to rooms - all in great shape. We rented a private cabin and even though there were many other people on property it felt like it was only us at night, just the sounds of the jungle! Brd watching is something I'd've never signed up for...but we did for some reason; and LOVED IT, Freddie was a spectacular guide. Also shout out to the great servers and chef there - Lucy, Fatma, Dylan, and Oscar. Wll be back for sure!

Almost everything during my stay was a mess. I ordered an expensive private transfer when booking online so that I would arrive on time to still do an activity that day. Otherwise I could have taken a cheap public bus. The transfer didn’t show the first 90 minutes without giving any warning. Each time I called I was lied to that it would be there in 15 minutes. After the third time that message I took an airport taxi by myself (normally the most expensive place to find a taxi) to find out that was cheaper than the D&D transfer… I booked a room in the finca, a 10 minute walk away from D&D. This is supposedly more quiet than the hostel. The surroundings are beautiful. However the place is very noisy. The windows don’t even have glass in them, so you hear everything around you. And local tourists are cooking, dining and drinking in front of the building until late, just meters away from your bed. When asked, the local staff didn’t care about noise at all, couldn’t be bothered to help. Not a place where it is comfortable to sleep if you have to get up early for tours in nature. I had included a full day guided tour on the lake for birdwatching in my booking and had also corresponded about that being in English as that was my main reason for visiting. D&D however didn’t book this for me, trying to fix this last-minute they messed up. The guide was good but brought me back after 3 hours because he had been double booked. The hotel then talked me into a guided tour elsewhere as alternative. I clearly told them I am physically unable to hike much but was reassured that it would just be an easy walk. I ended up with a guide who spoke no English and didn’t make any effort to communicate otherwise. He walked far ahead of me and led me through a 7 hour ordeal with lots of steep climbs, extremely muddy trails and a lot of off-road through the bush. I fell several times, he didn’t care. It seems like he lost his way as we were back long after dark.

Amazing place to just drink and chill with family or friends in the quiet of nature. The food is delicious and the beer is exceptional. Great attention from the guys there, amazing people and hard workers.

I agree with the best of the good, well-deserved reviews that D&D has received -- D&D is a great place to spend a few days. The American owner and his Honduran staff members actually seem to enjoy what they're doing, and what they're doing is running a gem of a forest lodge. The rooms and cabins, the food, the overall ambience, and of course the beer, were all great, a perfect balance between rustic and comfortable. When I reluctantly left, I had no doubt that I would return when possible. I should add that in addition to running a great lodge in the woods, the staff are also fine advocates for Honduras and Honduran tourism -- if you want to visit Honduras but are still a little put off by all the "bad press" (much of it overblown), make D&D an early stop; they'll give you a lot of encouragement and good current advice. So perhaps will your fellow guests, for the common outdoor dining and lounging areas practically invite people to mingle.

An excellent, somewhat rustic accommodation, with a great open air restaurant. Very clean rooms, quiet location, and firm, comfortable bed. Restaurant menu is limited but they are very flexible and accommodating. The artisan beers are a real treat!

This place is beautiful and is nestled in a private little jungle near the lake. You need a car to get here as it's quite far from the main lake. It's North of Lake Yojoa, near the canal. The lodge itself is located off a side road a few kilometers from the main road. The grounds are lush and the cabins are beautiful. The bed was soft enough and the cabin was spacious. I stayed in Cabin #1. It had an armoir and two full beds. Lots of windows and a ceiling fan. The bathroom was beautiful with modern tile and a nice shower with hot water. The porch had a hammock and a wooden glider chair. The restaurant food was good and the service by Dillan was excellent. The restaurant tables are spread out among the tall foliage to provide an ambience of seclusion. The main restaurant area is near a communal fire pit and a cornhole game. Because of the humid weather and lush grounds, mosquitos were rampant and even though I showered in repellant, I could not spend much time outside without running the risk of being carried off by the aggressive little vampires. The only thing I wish I'd had was A/C inside the cabin. It was warm inside until dark when it would start to cool down. Although it was still too warm to lie between the sheets, I tucked them around me because there were many mosquitos on the walls, and I didn't want to wake up looking like I had the measles. I went to sleep with mosquito repellant on and it was a hot, sweaty, sticky night.

5 of my friends and I took a rare opportunity to explore Lake Yojoa and the surrounding area. We stayed for two nights at D&D Brewery and Lodge and could not have been more blown away by the quality and hospitality of the lodging and entire staff. Dillon was a rockstar waiter, and the beer was phenomenal. Definitely coming back.

This is a great place when compared with what is standard in Honduras and I will definitely return to it. Beautifully maintained areas and they spared no expense in the beautiful wood adirondack chairs everywhere (thank God no cheap resin chairs!). I think the $45/cabin I paid was more that fair and the cabins were large and with comfortable beds. No AC is only acceptable at 2am when it finally dips into the high 60s. I "borrowed" a standing fan from the dining area and brought it to my room because it was much needed prior to the early morning. However during my stay (rented 2 cabins, 4 people total) they had no towels in our rooms AT ALL. They had some explanation about dirty water and having them sent out into town for washing. The main issue I have is this is a no AC hotel (yes AC is needed especially during the day, don't buy the line that you won't need it if you're from the USA) and due to the massive vegetation, it is humid. One needs showers. So no towels was a major problem for me. Why does a nice hotel like this not have 3 - 5 times the amount of linens and towels needed as all hotels should due to replacements needed from staining, wear & tear and theft? Next morning still no towels and we all wanted a shower. Then it occurred to someone to check one of the cabins not rented the night before and lo and behold, there were towels there and we took them. Why provide towels for cabins not reserved and leave reserved cabins with no towels? Another major management miss. BTW another family of 5 complained they also had no towels... they were out of luck since I took the only towels in the place. Another area of improvement is customer service. The staff there will do whatever you need them to do BUT they will not anticipate what you might want. We purchased cocktails at the bar and then walked up to the fire pit area. Then since no one ever came to see if we needed more drinks, we kept having to walk back to the bar. We would have consumed 3 times the amount of alcohol ($$$) and tipped if we had someone waiting on us. On the food, what I had was OK. Quesadilla portions way too small (why small portions on cheap items like quesadillas?) but the salad entree was large and good. I avoided the pizza because that is one thing you'll never find good in the entire country BUT I did regret that decision when I saw their chef preparing a custom made pizza in their portable/propane pizza oven. I looked very very good. So in summary, excellent place that I will visit again but expect mishaps as it is the norm anywhere in Honduras.

My wife and I recently visited the D&D Lodge for 3 nights. We felt so safe and secure there and everyone in the local community was friendly. They all waved, smiled and greeted us as we passed even during walks on the back roads towards to parks. Everything about this place is magical. The setting is so tranquil and quiet. The staff is extremely friendly and kind. Bobby, the owner, and Ernesto, the manager both speak excellent English which was good since neither of us speak Spanish. The food was fantastic - you could tell from the taste that it was locally sourced. We are not drinkers, so cannot attest to the brewery, but the other guests seemed to be raving. The pictures on their website do not do justice to how wonderful our little cabin was. They are all nestled over 2 acres or so. The sounds of the birds and wind in the trees was so relaxing.

DD Brewery is an amazing little oasis near lake Yojoa. It is a popular destination for backpackers and more adventurous tourists.  It's a higher altitude location nestled in the mountains so it's a bit cooler. There is no AC (as advertised) so beware when traveling the hottest months of April and May. The food is quality on site but we also enjoyed Burac and Digbyana restaurants locally.  Expect $4-$8 per plate and great portions.  The ambiance at DD is terrific,  especially in the evenings.  The cabins: we stayed in a 2 bed jungle cabin.  The shower was nice and the fans were adequate cooling in the evenings,  days are still warm.  Lots of bugs and minor repairs needed but you are seated in a rain forrest so it's expected.  Beds were comfortable and everything was SUPER clean (A+). The Staff: the staff was absolutely amazing.  They worked very hard to accommodate any request.  They did everything with excellence.  The food on site was particularly good (and will meet or exceed a tourists' standard). Lucy was particularly exceptional at Swedish massage, highly recommend.  We had a few hiccups but Bobby and the staff did everything in their power to resolve it promptly, even if it wasn't their fault.  Activities: the activities are outlined well on the website. We enjoyed bioparque paradise (beautiful area to explore and hike (4/10 difficulty), kayaking and boat rides on the lake,  Cerro Azul meambár National Park (PANACAM) (9/10 Difficulty sinai trail, others are 2-4/10), and pulhapanzak waterfall (2/10 Difficulty). Amazing scenery,  flora, and fauna in the region. A note to tourists,  busses and taxis quit running around 6 pm so plan your transportation accordingly.  Overall: Highly recommend the destination.  They work hard to create a nice vacation spot.  Just go with the expectation that it isn't a Ritz Carlton and you are in a remote region in a developing nation. Strong Spanish recommended but not required.
