Telamar is the most recognized of all beach Tela hotels. It has been around for as long as anyone recalls… Originally the old gated community where the executives of the Tela Railroad Company used to live. Telamar became a hotel when the company headquarters where moved to La Lima, adjacent to the San Pedro Sula International airport 50 years ago. The hotel originally used the old wooden homes that belonged to the fruit company. However a total renovation actually took out many of these old buildings. New buildings with the old banana era architecture were built in its place. There are still a few of the old banana era building structures within the premises.
Telamar offers an optional all inclusive operation. The resort has the largest pool in Tela, several restaurants and access to one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. It offers 273 luxury rooms and suites with all the amenities you would expect in a quality beach hotel around the world. Telamar also features the original 9 hole Tela Golf Course. This historic golf course was built by the Banana Company for the use of its executives. If you do not want an all inclusive package at Telamar, you can alternatively book a room and pay for your extra expenses depending on your consumption. Telamar Resort is easily the most popular of Tela Hotels.

Next to the beach, Veromar is a family owned property that has been adding on new wings and areas over the years. As a result, it is not the nicest looking property in town. Some rooms are better that others, but they are usually quite plain and basic. In total, Hotel Veromar offers 50 rooms, a pool, a restaurant and bar. Although some rooms do have an ocean view, and there is no large construction between the hotel and beach, it is not really beach front.

Enjoy the charm of a beach front Garifuna Village staying at Caribbean Coral Inn. Located in the Garifuna Village of Triunfo de La Cruz, just a few kilometers east of Tela, and right on the Bay of Tela, Caribbean Coral Inn offers a back to nature experience, with comfortable, clean but Spartan rooms, great cooking and outstanding hospitality.

A nice, small and intimate 10 room hotel located right on the beach. It is not downtown, which makes it a lot quieter and pleasant; I truly do not like crowds! The property includes a nice swimming pool, a restaurant with a great ocean view and a bar. Capitan Beach Hotel is good medium range beach hotel option.
A new, self contained eco property that few people in Tela know or have heard about. Los Olingos is a true gem of a property. Located right on the shores of Los Micos Lagoon, the largest natural salt water lagoon in Atlantida, Los Olingos offers comfortable rooms in authentic old Banana Company residential homes, with all the original luxuries and details. These wooden homes are carefully spaced around the property, with the sites having been chosen to take advantage of the natural breeze and the outstanding views. Friendly hospitality, great cooking and a quiet, safe environment make it ideal to disconnect from life and enjoy nature, as well as for great family meetings or closed seminars.
Although the preferred route towards Los Olingos follows the coastline from Tela to the Garifuna community at Miami, and then a boat ride through the mangrove canals to the main lagoon, access via land through a series of African Palm plantations is also possible. Los Olingos is one of the nicest Tela hotels to choose from.
Honduras Shores Plantation
A residential development that includes several hotel rooms in addition to fully furnished beachside homes, Honduras Shores Plantation offers an idyllic setting right on the beachfront on the Bay of Tela. While not all the villas are on the beach, the facilities include a large pool with a spacious restaurant and bar offering everything you would want to enjoy next a beautiful tropical beach on the Caribbean Sea.
A gem of a hotel. Really nice spacious rooms and suites, all decorated with unique paintings by local artists. The location is out of town, so you will need a car to go into town if you need something, but then again, why would anyone want to go into town when you have everything right there? Access to a nice beach, a pleasant pool, a full service restaurant, wifi. If you want to enjoy the beach, and do not want to be in the middle of hustle and bustle, especially during the hot months of March through May, when Tela’s beaches fill up on the weekends, then a place like Grissy’s Hotel is absolutely perfect!

Anexo Cesar Mariscos
An extension of the famous Cesar Mariscos, but offering more competitive pricing, the Cesar Mariscos Annex offers the same outstanding service, with its own pool and a great location that is within walking distance of the beach and the Cesar Mariscos Restaurant.
Hotel Belavista (Anexo Sherwood)
Another property owned by Mr. Sherwood Bonilla, but not on the beach. Personally, I don’t like the feel of the building. It is bit convoluted, with steep stairs, narrow hallways, small rooms. The prices however are right, and the location, only one block away from the beach is great too!
Downtown and right on the beach, the Hotel Puerto Rico offers some of the most budget accommodations on the beach in Tela. With 25 rooms, each with a private bath, air-conditioning and TV, the hotel does not offer much more. No internet and no hot water. There is a restaurant and bar overlooking the beach which offers typical food, including fried fish with plantains.
