“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Great food, not to mention the service. A really magical place with an awesome view and a real peaceful place. The sunsets are specially nice to enjoy a nice wine. Late afternoons are great and nights are really special, the whole place by candle light.

“Beautiful Vista and A Lovely Place to Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We walked up here from Copan and it's only about 4 kilometers from town. It's a beautiful walk along the river and the property is extraordinary. Check out the grounds and the yoga pavilion. The food and drinks are really good, try the hibiscus tea and they have the best lemonade ever.

“Fantastic view but poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

While staying at the fantastic Yat B'alam hotel, my friends and I called into the the satellite office for Hacienda San Lucas next door to inquire about the possibility of taking a yoga class and possibly eating breakfast the next day. After a very pleasant conversation with the owner, it was confirmed that we would visit the next morning...

The walk from the town to the Hacienda was very pleasant as was the view from the spectacular terrace/garden over the ruins where we had breakfast. Without discussion or consultation of a menu we were served a typical Honduran breakfast of tortillas, scrambled eggs, frijoles and local cheese immediately preceeding our yoga class... Not the best preparation or our preferred choice before a yoga class but we were polite and duely accepted the meal.

The resident yoga instructor arrived and we needed to ask for some digestion time before completing our class. The yoga session was held in very peaceful location overlooking the ruinas and river valley, however our state of relaxation ended abruptly following receipt of our bill.

For three people we were charged $45 for a typical breakfast and a whopping $50 for one hour of yoga instruction. I didn't realise that we had hired a DC lawyer to take us for the class! We were stunned but still in a state of shock we paid our dues and retreated to the oasis of Yat B'alam to lick our stinging wounds. To be fair we should have asked in advance for clear costings but having been in Copan for a couple of days staying in a hotel of comparable quality we felt that the prices would be somewhat similar. It is ridiculous to be charging this amount for a breakfast that can be purchased for a fraction of the price in other establishments of comparable quality.

Unfortunately this left a sour taste upon leaving Honduras, however a valuable lesson learned for us in future!

“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We had dinner here. Very tasty, beautiful presentation. The corn soup was incredible. Be aware the the cost is more then the guide books say - the guidebooks are not updated well.
