Hotel Playa Bonita Review
Peace, quiet, and boldly seasoned seafood at its restaurant ($$) make this beachside hotel a great retreat after a day of activity-packed excursions. The armoires are handcrafted by local artisans, and Garífuna-themed paintings hang from the walls. Conversation is lively in the casual outdoor restaurant, as members of local cultural and ecological groups often stop by for a bite of zesty panfried yellowtail, oily shrimp dunked in garlic and herbs, or coconut-infused rice. Town native and hotel owner Carlos Aragón is a member of the local tourism chamber and an excellent resource on all things Tela.
