At first we felt the price was a bit high, however our group had a great time relaxing on the deck with the beautiful views and excellent hot chocolate. We also appreciated the private parking space for our rental car, as well as breakfast being included. The rooms are very comfortable with a private hammock hanging outside the front. Beautiful...

Located very close to the city center with a very nice restaurant view, it features good service and nice rooms. The restaurant offers good breakfast. You should definitely have to try the Catracho or typical breakfast... it is delicious.

I chose this hotel because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor and was a little less expensive than other hotels in Gracias. It did not disappoint! It's set a little bit out of the city center, which was good because it was secluded from traffic and dust. The grounds are beautiful, with many plants and flowers and a friendly dog... More

The interior design is really nice. Lots of plants and attention to detail. The hotel is situated on a hill side, so all of the rooms and the restaurant face the town and the distant mountains. There is a wall in the restaurant with tons of useful information about things to do and see in the area. High-end comfort with... More

This hotel gets pretty good reviews from travelers. I just found it not price-for-amenities competitive with my other finds in Honduras. Very gracious Dutch owner who build a nice hotel on a difficult hillside property. But that means lots of stairs, so elderly and not-so-able beware. Our room was quite small; bathroom, too. Compensation was a patio overlooking town but... More

We stayed here over Christmas in 2015 and found it a nice experience. I believe the owner is Dutch, she has lived in Honduras a long time. We found the room comfortable and it was a pleasant outlook from the top restaurant over the town. We wanted to go birding and Frony kindly arranged a guide for us. He did... More
