My partner and I stayed at the Diving Pelican for three days before heading to Roatan. Everything you read here is true. Jim and Cathryn are nice. The dogs are just the best, and the rooms are good. However, if you come during the week, or during the summer, you are in for a real treat. YOU HAVE THE WHOLE BEACH TO YOURSELF. Completely. Utterly. It was terrific for us, just starting a honeymoon. We needed time to relax and adjust to the heat. DPI is right on the beach, and it is a nice swimming beach. Nothing to see snorkel-wise, but a fun place to frolic. Jim and Cathryn had Luis pick us up at the San Pedro Sula airport, which was much appreciated. Room was clean, AC worked, and the kitchen met our needs to make our own lunches (fridge, stove, water, etc). Jim's breakfasts are good - especially the sauteed 'plantanos' (plantain chips). I would say that on it's own, it's a great place. HOWEVER, there is a restaurant just a couple of doors down that really complements DPI well - Paradise Found. We had dinner there each night, and the two of them together were perfect for us.
Finally, just a note that Jim was very helpful in arranging trips for us. We appreciated that immensely.
