|My wife and I have stayed in Tela several times. On our last visit we discovered a new hotel a couple of kilometers west of town. It is called Grissy’s (http://www.grissys.com/). A taxi ride to town was $2.00 or it could be nice walk along the beach. The hotel and its staff are very impressive. It is located fifty feet from the beach and has its own pool. Rooms are large and some have a small kitchenette as part of your accommodation. Satellite TV offers some English language stations. The restaurant overlooks the pool and meals can be ordered a la carte. We chose to go the all-inclusive route. There is weekend entertainment as well.
The best part of Grissy’s is your treatment by the wonderful staff. They are very helpful with the ‘tourist’ questions and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The owner and some staff speak English but communication was never a problem with the Spanish speaking staff. Grissy’s will be our only hotel stop in Tela from now on.
