After two trips to Omega I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodation is great and caters for all, dormitories for backpackers on a budget and beautiful private cabins for those willing to splash out. The food is impeccable and diverse, the owners are German so there is some German themed cuisine so mix things up a bit.
Both trips we went rafting and although it does depend on the conditions of the river (1st visit the river was low, 2nd it was high), the rafting staff were able to pick locations and courses that made it awesome (and safe) each time. They introduce you to river swimming and rock jumping if they can too. If you have a GoPro camera some of the rafts and helmets have attachments for them. I have been rafting elsewhere in the world and this is the best i've encountered so far, the Rio Cangrehal is simply stunning and exciting in equal measure.
We also did the hike to the waterfall on Pico Bonito, a very sweaty and steep jungle trek but well worth it when you take a shower under the falls. Don't pay the $40 for a guide though, there is an easy path to follow and the entrance fee is just $7pp. The walks around the lodge itself are nice too (and free).
The rest of the time we were hanging by the 'no chlorine' pool and the bar with other guests and the staff. Speaking of the staff they were excellent! Super friendly, helpful and generally a pleasure to be around.
I have been living on Roatan island for the past year and its a very easy to catch the ferry to La Ceiba where Omega Tours can collect you (catch the 7am ferry and be there by 9:30am). Its a nice inexpensive two/three day trip from the island i would recommend highly.
