After a long hiatus from writing reviews, this place inspired me! If you are looking for some seclusion and luxury in Central America, this is an excellent location. Joanne, Robert and their staff, created a luxurious option just South of San Juan del Sur (SJDS). The house has the feel of being in the treetops. Tropical birds surround you, and... More

We happened upon this hotel searching for waves and was so impressed, we ended up staying two nights instead of one. The hosts were amazing, their staff accommodating and the place is immaculate. We just wish the surf was better, but that wasn't any fault of the hosts. We heard that when the surf is bigger, the point break in... More

Orquidea is an exceptional place for many reasons. The rooms are exceptional. The view of the Pacific is outstanding. The care given to guests is exceptional. The biggest reason Orquidea is such a fine place is because of the hands on care and guidance the owners give in eveything they do. It shows in many wanys. The staff are careing... More

My husband I stayed 7 days here - What a great place to escape to! Robert and Joanne really do have a bit of paradise here. The place is immaculately clean, the grounds are beautiful and relaxing. The surrounding area is just as beautiful, the town is a great place to spend the afternoon. Thanks to Sarah, Julio, Alex, and... More

We spent 3 nights at this fantastic romantic getaway and enjoyed every minute. The grounds are gorgeous and the view from the pools is spectacular. The host Robert was very kind and arranged everything for us. We enjoyed spending the day at playa yankee as well as surfing at playa hermosa. The food was top notch - had three lobster... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay. The owners and staff are really nice, professional, and hospitable. The owners make sure you have a nice time, they visit your table during breakfast and dinner and have small talk with you and accommodate whatever you need. The views from this place are breathtaking. They have a chef on site, and... More

Orquidea del Sur exceeded all of my husband and I’s expectations for our trip to Nicaragua. My husband is an avid surfer so I selected Orquidea based on the excellent reviews of the surf at Playa Yankee. You WILL NOT be disappointed! My husband surfed every day, often times twice a day at Playa Yankee; there was no need to... More

Orquidea is a hard-to-define hotel with nuances and personal touches galore! You truly have to see it to understand how special it is. It is technically a bed and breakfast with condominium style rooms and breakfast included in your nightly rate, but it is so much more. The owner, Robert, is a hands on host and you feel like his...
