||We booked a one-week tour at this place in March/April 2008. Unfortunately we had to cancel our stay at the Hotel Cabanas Tucan after only one night, encountering numerous problems (without ever getting reimbursed for our deposit). The accommodation doesn't live up to the expectations raised on the website at all - in fact, the descriptions are totally misleading (even the photo on the website is not showing the actual accommodation). To name but a few problems: the place is not really as secluded or
... view more situated in a park as you are lead to believe (but in the midst of other settlements and villages), neither is there a private beach (rather a public one, that people also ride there cars on, a five minute walk down a side road), what’s worse – in spite of literally millions of mosquitoes there were no mosquito nets at all, which are usually provided even in the most modest accommodations in Honduras (and the Honduran north coast does have malaria cases), no aircon or fans in a stuffy concrete bungalow, moreover there were no other guests in the whole place, the only (non-English-speaking) employee had no idea we were coming, it turned out all of the 3 meals that were supposed to be part of the package had to be taken somewhere else, after getting picked up by car each time... So, in short, the fact that we even ended up having to pay for the gas ourselves, when they picked us up from the airport initially without any cash at hand, proved to be a warning sign of things to come.
We don't have a problem with super basic accommodations, if they are advertised as such - but we do mind getting lured into a situation like that by false promises, and in the end, having to pay too much for what you get.
While we can’t say anything about the tour, which might be ok, it is a shame that this sort of chaos spoiled everything else and made us leave. Let’s hope that in the future they get their act together – there is definitely a lot to improve.
