I really enjoyed staying The Abuela (meaning Grandmother in Spanish) is such a sweet lady, and very helpful with anything you might need. The rooms have AC which is a nice feature. The Laguna is also beautiful I was up for a morning swim everyday, the water is fresh and clean! The only downside would be that tour groups do... More

A family of four, we stayed here in two rooms for two nights in December 2015. The rooms were not super clean and not in great condition. In one room, the bathroom was in particular need of both cleaning and maintenance. Note that, like many hotels in Nicaragua, the hotel has no hot water. (The cold water is not freezing,... More

Despite the place being nice, I have to say their customer service is very bad. We had a group for Lunch by 1pm. my soup came in at 4pm. at the end one of the members of our crew had no lunch, since it never came in. I talked to the "manager" but their awful customer service and the bad... More

Laguna de Apoyo is one of the top attractions in the Central Nicaragua Region - With that said La Abuela is supposed to be one of the locally owned establishments and although it is very beautiful the same cannot be said for the service and ethics practiced there. For being a local establishment it is extremely over priced. If you... More

We had been to La Abuela several times. The service was normal. The boss is an old lady who promised US$55 per night for a cabaña for us in the future and if we don't live there but eat there, then we could use the life jacket for free(all of us heard that). That was true until today. First of... More

Went here on recommendation of hosts where we're staying. Knew we were paying mostly just for access to waterfront. Menu kinda pricey for this part of the world. I had a banana smoothie which as good. $5 US I believe. Friend had club sandwich $6 looked minimally OK, nothing I would want to eat. Guess it was true, an earlier... More

Normally, the hospitality business is all about a game of expectations and the grounds and the advertisement are immediate ticker that yes THIS PLACE IS MEANT TO BE ON THE HIGHER END. Having said this, you will expect a good bang for your buck, this isnt always the case. Reading other reviews i will have to agree with 50% based... More

You really can't beat Abuela's, great location at Laguna de Apoyo, great staff, good food and drinks! Really nice cabanas with comfortable beds. And the lake is great for swimming. Highly recommended!

Despite being such a beautiful place, the customer service is simply awful. The restaurant took over an hour to bring our undercooked and incomplete order. The staff was very unpleasant, and after speaking to the manager, it was clear that for them the customer is never right. We packed up our stuff and left.

Absolutely STUNNING VIEWS and PEACEFUL. Kids had a great time jumping off the dock. Very primitive. I give it an average based on local bugs crawling on us at night. Not fun to crawl into bed and seeing bugs running around the sheets. Again, we understand this is a primitive hotel but wish we would have been prepared. Also, if... More
