In the Area
Set in the heart of Honduras, there is no shortage of outdoor activities and natural beauty to see in the area. Indura’s in-house excursion center offers a unique experience for adventure seekers looking to tour Honduras from the seas to the skies. Looking to stay on land? Nature tours at the Americas’ largest botanical garden Lancetilla Botanical Garden, 10 minutes from the resort, and Bird Watching at the Pico Bonito National Park, only an hour away by car, are some of the best in the world. Alternatively, the hotel offers a wide array of activities for beach-lovers, from paddle boarding and snorkeling in the coral reefs to early morning monkey tours.
How to Get There
We spent a entire weekend with my husband. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. Restaurant is very good, better if don’t use the buffet but individual servings. Attention is good. It is one of the best choices for travel in Honduras, a little bit expensive for the local traveler.
First of all, the place is beautiful and there are many people willing to provide great service. However, they really let us down in a huge way.
We booked three nights (Friday to Monday), we drove out of San Pedro Sula later than we had hoped on Friday and that was during the weeks where people were protesting every night. We tried multiple routes to try to make it that night and the protests (tire burning and crowds that did not allow us to pass) forced us to have to sleep at a motel about 30 mins from Tela. So I looked up Indura in Google Maps and tried calling their number several times with no answer (the number in Google Maps is incorrect - I didn't find this out until the next day).
We arrived Saturday morning and checked in. From that day and for the next three weeks, I have tried to get them to refund even a portion of that first night... and when I speak to Rachel (the manager), she tells me that there is nothing she can do because we paid for it via Orbitz. Then we call Orbitz and they call the hotel, then Rachel tells Orbitz that she does not approve the refund. It's been a frustrating several weeks of lies from the folks at Indura... especially from Rachel. That's terrible customer service from the first day we arrived... and it ruined our stay.
While the staff was friendly, I was extremely disappointed in the quality of the service from the wait staff. While being Hilton Gold members, we had the breakfast buffet included. It took the staff 25 minutes to get a table cleaned off for us to sit down at. We sat with dirty plates in front of us for 25 minutes. It took us 32 minutes to get offered coffee and menus as well. We asked for salsa and syrup and one morning got it after we had already finished our food and the next morning, never received it at all. This breakfast turned into being a 1 hour and 31 minute experience because of how slow and inattentive the wait staff was.
Sitting by the pool on the first day we had asked for a server to come by to take our drink orders. Waited 15 minutes and he showed up and asked him again if we could order drinks and then disappeared and never came back with menus. We just decided to walk up to the bar ourselves.
On a separate occasion, I noticed the staff from the restaurant delivered food to the bar to be wrapped up and taken to someone's room service. It sat on the bar for 10 minutes before someone wrapped it up and took to someone's room. Although this was not my meal, I think it's safe to assume this food was no longer hot and fresh and the recipients were extremely disappointed in their food quality.
Another occasion was the service at the beach bar. We had ordered a bottle of champagne and asked to get refills on the bucket of ice it was chilling on due to the heat. The ice was never replaced until the 3rd bottle of champagne that was purchased and there was one glass left. Also, getting the attention of the server at the beach bar was next to impossible.
The room was amazing. One of the best hotel rooms I've ever been in. The temperature control was perfect, the room is spacious and the bathtub is perfect!
In addition to the poor service overall throughout the stay, I have to admit that the food was below satisfactory. As a frequent Hilton guest, I hold the hotel to high standards when it comes to food as well as service/hospitality. This was extremely disappointing coming from such a high class brand with mediocre/sub par quality. The breakfast buffet was in my opinion the worst. I have ate at several buffets with Hilton and have been some of the best breakfasts I've experienced. This buffet had cold food, slow to refill empty items, non attentive wait staff and the menu extremely over-priced. While the menu items we ordered for breakfast was
Great for couples and families alike! Great facilities, we had a great weekend with my wife, surely we will visit again with the rest of the family. Presenced a wedding and weather eas great. Highly recommended.
I've not found a comparable property in Tela. The staff is friendly and attentive. The rooms are beautiful and the entire property is incredible. If you don't want to be on the beach, they have an outstanding pool area that is also very well lit at night.
