“Karen outdoes herself every morning.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Eggs Benedict one morning, shrimp omelette the next. Bar (she keeps a tab and settles up when you leave) and pool table to relax, hammocks to REALLY relax. Gym, sauna, splash pool/creek, and massages available if you REALLY REALLY want to relax. Omega Tours up the road, a three minute stroll if you want adventure. Hiking available in grounds. River across the street. You can make this as simple or as heart-pumping as you desire, and Karen is the maestro.

Karen, an expat from Canada, has a penchant for building with river rocks and concrete. She told us she could build anything with concrete. I believe her. The entire house and grounds were designed by her, built by locals with local stone, and is only one example of many on that hillside of her gorgeous work and seemingly LIMITLESS energy and creativity.

Our room, located on the backside of the house, was beautiful. Large, comfy bed, with fresh (a revelation to have crisp sheets in a country that never cools off and never loses its humidity) sheets, custom bathroom with a lovely stone shower, and great dark wood furniture. Accessorize with a cat, there are a few, if you wish, or shut your door if you don't. Accessorize with a dog, too, in Turbo (sweet Rott) or Sassy (lazy Husky).

Laundry was no problem, it was done the same day and returned to us, folded. Karen uses as many eco-friendly options as are available to her; don't hesitate to ask.

Both my husband and I wanted to stay longer, but we headed back to Roatan after two nights with Karen and Alex. If you want a bit of a splurge, THIS is the place to do it.

Room Tip: there is no such thing as a bad room here, or a better room, or a better locale. All are lovely.

Gourmet cuisine, beautiful grounds, large comfortable rooms, fantastic service, totally up to par for an exquisite taste . At night the celba(jungle) hums with all the voices , while you can enjoy superb meal, not a la carte, but menu of the day . Karen has truly created a jungle paradise. Very impressed.

Room Tip: Room upstairs next to Karen's has a large patio balcony, but you will probably not want to spend...

My wife and I stayed at Casa Cangrejal as a part of our honeymoon trip to Honduras.

The grounds are beautiful, being tucked away in the jungle, with a creek running behind the villa, and Karen has done a wonderful job of landscaping and using the local rock to create a rustic, yet elegant place with dunking pools and terraced areas in which to enjoy the natural beauty.

Our room was comfortable, spacious and unique, clean and quiet.

Karen is also knowledgeable about the area and helped us find our way to various hiking and water activities that the area is known for.

She is very warm and friendly. When she found out it was our honeymoon, we were gifted a nice bottle of wine. Sweet.

A different breakfast is served each day and the morning we stayed we were served shrimp omelets, homemade bread, fresh fruit and a variety of juices plus coffee of course. Very good.

We absolutely recommend staying at Casa Cangrejal and wish we had discovered it sooner so we could have stayed more nights there ourselves.

Room Tip: The room in front of the creek

Fly into La Ceiba then take the drive up!

> Access: Easy but bouncy ride. The Casa Cangrejal & Eco Jungle Lounge utilize similar taxi transportation services. Call them and they'll figure it out.

> Service: Top notch. Both owners provide a superb welcoming atmosphere. Your comfortably free to roam and hang out where ever you want.

> Bldg: Granite-like multiple stone structure makes you feel secure and comfortable. The owners designed a breathtaking home out of stone here in the middle of the jungle. From the walls to the floor to the ceiling to the walk-ways, Nobles of yesteryear would have been extremely jealous as to the beauty of the design and comfort of Casa Cangrejal.

> Renting: Easy. Call or book on line.

> Cost: All inclusive so it is more than a value per night.

> Comfort: Could have slept all morning but was awaken for a morning hike. The bed was rested my tired limbs from all the traveling days prior.

> Bathrooms: Stone! Stone! and more Stone! This makes it easy to keep clean. Beautiful designs. Hot & cold water flows with ease.

> Food: Yum! Both the Madame & Monsieur relaxed vibe makes you feel at home so ... start grazing!

> Entertainment: Nice lounge area & bar. You have a choice in escaping to go hiking through the hills (or mountains) or rafting (so strap in). Many Europeans, Aussies, & Kiwis venture here for the rafting (check with Udo @ Omega Tours down the path).

> Security: Solid. Peaceful.

> Additional comments: This is both a good couples escape plus a team building locaYou have a choice in escaping to go hiking through the hills (or mountains) or rafting (so strap in).

Room Tip: You'll have to go out of your way but it is worth the drive. I plan to spend more time here...

Our stay with Karen and Alex was awesome....absolutely awesome. The food, drinks, and hospitality ways the best. I was concerned when I heard there was NO A/C.....you have to trust me, it was very very comfortable. We were there June 20-25th, 2013.
The B&B is beautiful and very comfortable. All of the employees were the best and you couldn't ask for anymore. Hiking with Alex was a blast and ...........The FOOD ....to die for!
Thank you
Karen and Alex for a great stay.....

This place is great!
Karen and Alex are amazing characters, with giant hearts! The two of them are too much fun.GO for a walk in the jungle with Alex, he will teach you so many things,
Just hang out with Karen, and listen to her advice, and let her cook for you, and pressure you into having another beer.
Oh and if you get a chance play Karen in pool you wont regret it . . . at all!
Each room and or building that you can possibly stay in is modern, comfortable beyond belief and the area around is like an enchanted forest.
Breakfast is with fresh, free range chickens that they raise up on the hill soo good! All the food is local and fresh,
and go on an adventure with their neighbours,

Room Tip: if you can stay in the farmhouse, top or bottom, both are great

After the whole day of the travel when we saw plenty of poverty and human discomfort we arrived to this hotel which looks unreal.The houses are almost brand new , very solid built, extremely comfortable and clean ,large in size. The entire hotel is set according to top level of any western known hotel . I was very pleased with the stay in this hotel, extremely warm welcome by Karen and Alex. Karen is also a very good cook. You will enjoy your stay there.

Room Tip: All rooms a very good.
