“Unforgettable, amazing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2009

Our family of 6 just returned last week from a trip to Honduras, and we had the good fortune to reserve 2 nights at Villas Pico Bonito. It was the most enjoyable and memorable part of our stay. We rented the large thatched roof 'hut' right by the pool (see pictures), and it felt like living in the jungle with all amenities included.
The place is beautifully done, and the views of the river flowing by, or the waterfall in the midst of lush vegetation on the other side of the valley, are just gorgeous. Our hosts Richard and Ana made us feel like long lost friends coming home, and the staff catered to our every need. The Pico Bonito park, zip lining, or white water rafting is within walking distance, and La Ceiba is a few minutes away by car.
Thanks, Rochard and Ana, for an unforgettable, relaxing time!!

I can't recommend this place enough! Richard was a great host and took care of our every need. He arranged transporation for us to and from the airport and bus station which was a one less thing for us to worry about. Richard truly cares about his guests and his staff is friendly and helpful. The pool is beautiful and the perfect temperature for swimming. Our room overlooked the river, and the screened in porch was great for eating dinner in without sharing our food with any bugs. Richard arranged for us to go whitewater swimming with a local tour company, which was a blast. Our room was equipped with a kitchen (stove, sink, oven, and pots and pans, small refridgerator and dishes and silverware) It was perfect, we asked our driver to stop off so we could get some food at the super market. This saved us money on meals, while the Villas staff will be happy to prepare meals for you, this was one area where we decided to save some money (although they do make a tasty burger!). I can't recommend this place enough. Richard has wifi on property which he is more than happy to let you use. I would definately go back to the Villas at Pico Bonito. It was truly a highlight of our trip in Central America.

Our family (2 adults, 3 children) just returned from a relaxing, but all too brief, visit to the newly- constructed Villas Pico Bonito, perched a stone throw above the muscular Rio Cangrejal. Adjacent to the national park, this splendid but environmentally unobtrusive resort sits amidst abundant wildlife with superb birding. And, for those in quest of an adventure, it is well situated, just a 5 minute walk to a water rafting outfit plus a 9-component jungle zip line. You can swim in the invigorating fast river or in the pool by the thatched restaurant/bar. The latter provides all meals, save breakfast, and the food is top-notch.
Our fully equipped villa- with 5 varieties of jungle wood flooring- was delightfully decorated, spotless and, astonishingly, bug free. On the back porch, there is a magnificent view of an impressive waterfall atop the mountain. Not unexpectedly given the setting, there is no need for A/C and at night the river roar is a delightful sedative. Moreover, the lush grounds are rich in a diversity of flora, a particular interest of the owner and exemplary host, Richard Adamson. Speaking of whom, Richard resides there so he is readily available, a wellspring of information about all aspects of Honduras, such as the people, travel, government …etc. In our opinion, his extraordinary hospitality alone makes this resort a frontrunner over other vacation lodges in CA.
The only trivial shortcoming, and assuredly this will be remedied, is a lack of on-site books and pamphlets on Honduras, especially those devoted to its inimitable biodiversity. Also, a sign-in travel journal or log for the quests wherein one could relate interesting experiences and recommendations would be helpful.
This is a truly wonderful resort.

My family and I stayed at Villas Pico Bonito and I will HIGHLY recommend it. We spend 3 days there after a week in Roatan. We took the early morning ferry to La Ceiba. It is very centrally located, only about 7 miles from La Ceiba. It is located probably in the prettiest part of the Rio Canrejal, with incredible views of the waterfall. You can really feel the Pico Bonito jungle, staying at the Villas; they are in the midst of it all. There are plenty of activates, all extremely close including, river rafting, hiking, and much more. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful in everyway. The food was great too and inexpensive. Just a very fun atmosphere. If you are in Honduras, a bit adventurous, and are planning to be in the La Ceiba area, this resort is a must!

My wife and I were the first guests to stay in the Del Rio room in February 2009. The owner, Richard, has done an amazing job of designing and getting a local crew of workers to build this place. It is in a wonderful setting next to the Rio Cangrajal with lush vegetation and a variety of birds. The views are great and the sound of the river was very relaxing for us. Although construction of other units was happening during our stay, it was never a bother for us. We especially liked the location as we took the opportunity to hike in the adjacent national park. Our only dislike would be the road to the Villas (7 km of bumps) but we understand that it also probably limited the number of people travelling up and down the road.
Our room was perfect for what we were looking for in a self contained condo, comfortable bed, nice shower, decent kitchen and the screened porch was a bonus. Richard has equipped each unit with top of the line materials, fixtures, furniture and appliances.
The restuarant/bar were fine although perhaps lacking in food selection, some local or native dishes would be appreciated. Make sure you say hello to Lyle in the bar as he pours a great drink and is a wealth of information about most places on Central America.
We would highly recommend Villas Pico Benito if you are looking for quiet place to hang out for a few days and experience rural Honduras.

My family and I stayed at the lovely Villas Pico Bonito in February of 2008. The property is quite exotic with colorful plants and gorgeous trees. I particularly liked the red flowers of the ginger plants. There are numerous options for housing, from contemporary all the way to "grass hut" complete with thatched roof and no walls. Each housing unit has all the mod cons so you have the luxuries you're accustomed to in a total jungle setting. The river is fabulous, wonderfully clean and fast flowing, and a lot of fun for swimming or rafting. There are numerous other places tucked in the jungle nearby, restaurants, bars, river and jungle outfitters etc, so everything you need is close by.

My family had a blast and I totally recommend Villas Pico Bonito for an active, fun vacation.
