We spent 3 nights at Orquidea del sur with our 4 children along with fiends of ours and their child. The accommodation is excellent, a very high standard, very comfortable, clean and relaxing. The staff are absolutely lovely, very professional and attentive. The owners, Robet and Joanne, are super nice, helpful and friendly. The food is great and the grounds... 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...

It is the third time we did spend a retreat at Roberts Orchid. We had such a nice time again. Spacious room, giant shower and bathroom, refreshing pool, great food and lots of fun talking and joking around with Robert. Thank you very much for making us feeling welcome. Sure that there will be a fourth time. We are looking... More

Like most have already said, pictures simply do not do this place justice!! We traveled to Nicaragua a week ago for a couple's vacation. Initially, I was unsure if I wanted to be so far away from town (I believe the place is about 10 miles away from San Juan del Sur), but I'm so glad we booked a room... More

We decided to go to Nicaragua on a whim for Spring Break. I fortunately found this place searching TripAdvisor and am so thankful I did. Robert was incredibly helpful throughout the booking and planning process. He made wonderful suggestions for activities and sent me a spreadsheet to fill out to help plan it out. We had surf lessons, horseback riding,... More

This is a stunning place. Photos simply cannot do it justice. If you are looking for the party/surfing scene, then you should opt for Playa Del Sur. If your desires are for complete serenity with stunning views, amazing rooms and food with outstanding service, then look no farther than Orquidea Del Sur. The entire staff was lovely.
