One of the best experiences of my life. Not only do I miss it so much after coming home but it feels like home to me now! In the future I want to spend lots more time here! The staff were amazing and incredibly friendly and the cabanas were clean and cozy! Highly recommend it for a school group, family... More

On behalf of our group of 25 which included 7 doctors, 3 nurses, many other talented high school students, college students and adults, I want to say we had the best trip ever, this being my third time to Monty's Lodge. Monty and Gerry and Karen took such great care of us! The food was fabulous! So fresh and delicious!... More

We've been to Monty's Beach Lodge about 4 times now and just keep coming back! We come to Nicaragua a lot because my dad lives there and the trip to Jiquilillo has become a must every time we visit. It feels like you're among family being there, so it's a great family trip. It's right on the beach so the... More

We went to Monty's with a group of volunteers, many of whom had been there before. It really is a unique place with the advantages of glorious beach side beauty and a focus on community involvement. Monty and Gerry want you to have a good time and they will try to arrange anything you need; from transportation from Managua to... More

My sixth trip to Monty's Beach Lodge continues to be a great experience. For this trip I brought my girlfriend and my 2 sons (10 and 8 years old). Obviously I'm a huge fan of Monty's but admittedly I was a bit nervous as I wasn't sure what it would be like for my young sons. Any other trip they've... More

Once you stay here it will continually draw you back. I first stayed at Monty's in Feb 2014. I returned for a second time in Nov 2014. I was pleasantly surprised to see continued improvements to the property. There was a new lighted pathway from the beach front property to the back section. The kitchen and dining area was relocated... More

I just returned from an amazing experience here. Monty and Gerry treat their guests like family and freely spread their love for Nicaragua and especially Jiquilillo. I wanted a relaxing week with a combination of some exploring, some surfing, and some volunteering and that's exactly what I got. The other guests were equally as motivated to get involved and help... More

Monty's Beach Lodge is the only place to stay in Jiquilillo, Nicaragua...and trust me, you should definitely go to Playa Jiquilillo! We arrived in Jiquilillo with no reservations. After checking out all of the available accommodations we choose to stay at Monty's place. We were planning on staying for a few days and ended up staying over a week! Everything... More

I travelled with a friend to visit Monty's for some R&R. The trip was great, very enjoyable and relaxing. There were two large volunteer groups during the week we were there, but I always felt that Gerry made the extra effort to ensure our needs were met. They arranged transport from the airport, we arrived and had a private cabana... More
