Stayed there a week. Yes, the views are beautiful but they charge you double for that in hidden costs. They don't truly appreciate your business. I found the staff would rather hang out together then spend any time getting to know the guests. We saw the owner daily and he didn't speak to us until we were checking out. He... More

Stayed in the dorm 'cabin' (#5) and experienced an out of control rodent population -including one that found its way into my hair during the night. The critters traverse the ceiling beams at night and morning brings pellets of crap all over our stuff. Recognize this place is at the intersection of development and natural habitat, so you will see... More

Loved the open restaurant and the sound and sights of the waves while you eat. The hammocks are a sweet homey touch. Have a very hostely make yourself at home vibe which I totally dig. Very laid back atmosphere. The restaurant staff were the best. Leche the dog is a cutie. The rooms are amazing and we had a sweet... More

We stayed in total ten nights at the Magnific Rock Hotel in Popoyo in apartment 3 which is one of the upper two apartments. The view you have from your balcony is just amazing and makes a stay worthwhile anyways even if there are minor things which could be improved. If you plan on using the kitchen, you have to... More

While a beautiful view the service here was awful. We had multiple servers but had trouble getting drinks and food. It was just ok...when it finally came. Another word to the wise is if you ask for a to go box make sure there is actually the food in it that you wanted. Very annoying.

I know it is long, but please read this review... Like most other reviews on here, our experience at Mag Rock was very mixed. The only really good thing I can say about Mag Rock is the location.. The views are the best in Central America. Other than that, the place has a weird, negative vibe about it, as explained... More

I stayed here in March this year. The hostel manager made every effort to accommodate our group of three even though they were quite full at the time of our arrival. The surf around the area is amazing & my husband was really pleased with his experience. Tip for wives & girlfriends looking to sunbake, it's rather windy place, like... More

Pros: Rancho bungalow Views Restaurant (little expensive but very good) Cons: Non-existent service Isolated. You're a fair way from Popoyo / Santana, which means you're limited to eating most meals at the hotel restaurant This place is marketed as a hotel but it is best described as a better than your average hostel. Our experience here was really mixed. We... More

Swimming pool off the first floor...tacos are great. Great open plan bar area, hammocks. Great view of Santanas beach break, and also of the famous Popoyo Reef. Had New Year's party there, which was super cool.

Just finished a weeks stay at Magnific Rock and it was bliss. Breathtaking views. All around mellow earthy vibe. The food was healthy, clean and double yum. Santana's is about at 15 minute walk down the beach to your left. popoyo about 10 to the right. Also some waves to the right and left of magnific rock. I strongly recommend... More
