I was a little skeptical before booking at the CP-SPS due to some of the lower rated reviews I read online. However, after my stay, I did not find the poor reviews were deserved!
You can tell the
hotel is dated and in need of some repairs compared to other CP properties and competitor hotels in SPS, but I found the hotel, grounds, and my room to be very clean and you could see the staff cleaning at various times during the day.
The staff was very curteous and attentive to my needs - especially the housekeeping, restaurant and bar staff. I needed a safe in my room and within 10 minutes after checking in, the hotel maintenance was installing the safe!
The restaurant was very clean and offered a good variety of food - mostly continental. The breakfast buffet offered some typical Honduran offerings but I wish their lunch and dinner menu would offer more local (typical) dishes - they are so good! I always feel that one should eat local as much as possible when traveling - I can get chicken pesto in the US! The service was a little slow at times but, in my opinion, this was due to running too lean of a staff. No one was standing around but were constanlty busy with many tasks.
I highly recommend the "Atmosphere" bar - especially Santos, the mixologist. Ask him to make you the signature bay island drink "Monkey-La-La" but with rum.! He'll know who recommended it to you! [Less]
