SUNWING???????how do you rate a hotel?? What is the difference between your 4* star in this hotel to comparison to other resort in other countries?
No water sports was so ever!
Bar selection ,is limited to beer, children's slush drink with booze is a Daiquri,or pina colada, screwdriver, rum & coke, vodka & tonic or tequila straight up!!!!!!!
No gin or after dinner drink cream mint....or even wine serve at the at the bar,,, yes can you believe it....never I have seen this in all my travels,,,,,,, poor excuse of a bar....
There is a snack bar where soft drinks & beer is available as well as nachos with cheese sauce is served,, as well as hot dog or cheese pizza.alternate each other day...popcorn on Saturdays??
All personnel are friendly and do a great job....
From front lobby ,chambermaids,servers.entertainment etc.
Food: is good, you don't have a huge selection...but is always fresh as 2-3 choices of meats. Always fresh salads and fruits,vegetables..fish,chicken and even the beef were excellent.
Yes they serve wine in the dinning hall...as well as soft drinks and beer in frosted mugs.
Again very odd..... 4 large t.v. screens in the dinning area,,,, just like a sports bar?? Soccer or animal plant,,, no sound? Fine dinning with a little music,,, not going to happen!
Rooms: very spacious and clean, fluffy white duvet ,lots of pillows,,, table with 2chairs lots of lightening, good air conditioning and WiFi at $15.00 per week(wifi and 2 computer stations free of charge in lobby)
Bathroom..lots of hot water and great water pressure,,, soap, shampoo, cream.and the whitest fluffy towels and face cloths.
Pools are nice, big one with waterslide and waterfalls,, as well as small shallow pool with 4little slide for the young children....loungers and patio tables and chairs with umbrellas and palm trees...nice layout.
Beach is public and lots of locals selling their junk at a higher price than in town???
Loungers and shaded roof top over you heads, and a large snack bar with soft drinks and beer and 5 choice drink selection! Nice area to sit, hear the ocean, and read a good novel.
The sand is brown and the water is not that Caribbean blue,,,, the wave are strong and you don't see many swimming, just dipping to get wet,,,, you can walk in each direction for exercise.walk close to water ,,,,,as not to walk in sandy areas for pieces of glass etc.
There is an exercise room, saunas, and massage service $25.00 for 45mins,,, she is good!
Pros: good place to come and relax, relax...
Cons: hotel has to offer a better bar selection.....not up to standards... by no means,,, like looking at bare selves???? Umbrellas should be provided in the rooms like other resort we have seen in our travels,,,, because when it rain here .......it really rains.... the rain season is worth checking before you travel,,,,, it has rained here 11days out of our 14day stay...rain,,,downpours for 12hours straight!!!!!!
Departure tax is $40.00us dollars.....expensive if you are staying only 1week,,,
Telemar is a good 2hour in a bus from airport as well,,,, this was our 2nd visit to Honduras (2007 at the Palma Real) which was closer to the zippline and other excursions as well as a busy city with great retail shopping mall....Tela ia a small fishing town and sell little trinkets and is safe to walk in daytime..it is an experience,,, we have walked every other day just to go something!
Will we return or suggest to others to visit,,,, NO.... but if you want to relax, sleep well,, and have alot of space this is the place,,,,,,,, the only guests here are French Canadians and Hondurans on conference or local families for the weekend....
Best parts no bug bites,,,,,never was tummy sick! t.v. in room have 5 English channels,,another life line if you didn't speak French! all the best as they say vacation is better than work anyday!!!
rain or shine
