Roatan, Honduras
Reviewed 25 July 2012

This hotel is a old colonial home redone as a hotel. Beautiful garden courtyards, 12 foot doors, and the most comfortable beds in Nicaragua I suspect. Very attentive staff but not obtrusive. The bathrooms are separate from your room: you have a private bath, you just have to walk down the corridor to get there. Seems a bit weird at...

We travelled to Granada over Memorial Day 2012, thanks to a deal on JetSetter. I contacted Nadine several times for details and to book services ahead of time (airport transfers, spa treatments, excursions). This incredible lady is a true asset to the hospitality industry and to Granada. Full of knowledge and good suggestions, inquisitive about our wants, very detailed-oriented, great...

We stayed for 1 night and really enjoyed it. The facilities are extremely charming and the staff is very helpful. The spa/message facilities are incredible and a great value. The location is well placed, but the best quality of all is the owner who is actively trying to give back to the community. We enthusiastically recommend Bocona.

On behalf of the owner, thank you so much for the lovely comment about giving back. Community development is foremost on our minds here at La Bocona. As you know, we donate 50% of all income to a local children's educational center that also provides more than one hundred thousand meals a year to underprivileged community members of all ages....

I don't even know where to start, so I guess I'll begin by saying that Hotel La Bocona makes you want to cry when you walk in and cry even more when you have to leave. This hotel is so amazingly beautiful that it puts 4 diamond properties to shame. The simplistic beauty of the hotel itself is above reproach....

We chose to stay at La Bocona because the pictures online showed a stunning, unique property with charm and classic style.

There are few hotels I spend time scheming ways about how soon I can return to them. But then, there are few hotels staffed by such a loving and magnificent a staff, set in as gorgeous environment. The hotel staff creates an atmosphere that, in the most professional way possible, is more like a family than a staff. The women...

Wow. We knew the hotel would be lovely from the pictures and reviews, yet it exceeded our expectations. We booked six nights here and were initially interested in going to the beach so we could see the Pacific side too. We ended up staying in Granada and doing closer day trips, partly because we fell in love with the hotel...
