Monty's Beach Lodge has become our home. Not our home away from home, but our home. We consider everyone there our family. Our family has been there several times and are always in the process of planning a return. We just arrived home after leading a group of Rotary Interact Youths who were building sustainable housing in Jiquilillo. This project... More

This was my first trip to Nicaragua and I didn't know what to expect. The trip turned out better than I imagined. Nicaragua is a beautiful country and felt way safer then some areas of Mexico I have travelled to. Monty's Beach Lodge is a fantastic rustic resort. The staff were attentive and helpful and the people in the surrounding... More

Had an amazing time in Nicaragua and being able to come back to Monty's for meals and leisure time made the whole trip! The rooms were really cool with the roof being made out of palm leaves. I always felt safe in the resort and it was a very comfortable environment. The staff are amazing and it's truly a great... More

Jiquilillo is a fantastic little village with so much charm. We were staying elsewhere initially and came to monty's to get some wifi as there is none elsewhere in the area. It was a great decision as we loved our stay here. Nice food, fun little beach bar with entertaining staff and you fall out the front onto the beach... More

My experience at Monty's was fantastic. This rustic beach lodge was the perfect setting for me and my friends to truly experience rural Nicaragua and the culture of the fishing village while feeling safe and secure. The hospitality and friendliness of people there was second to none. I cannot say enough positive things about Monty's and would stay there again... More

Great surfing location, not many other activities to do. Much more of a isolated location where you can mix with locals and be immersed in the Nica culture. Not for the faint hearted. Great bar and hospitality! Great place for a group, family, or solo, if solo pre arrange your transport with Monty's.

I went to Nicaragua with a volunteer group called GIVE this past May 2015, and I cannot begin to explain how at home and safe I felt at Monty's Beach Lodge. The staff was so friendly and accommodating that I never hesitated to approach Gerry or any one else on the staff. At the end of our trip, the staff... More

I was part of a volunteer group from the United States and stayed at Monty's for a week. I truly cannot say enough good things about the lodge -- the service was great, the staff was helpful and caring, and the overall experience was incredible. I felt like I was staying at the home of a friend rather than a... More

I stayed at Monty's for a week on a GIVE volunteer trip this past May, and I genuinely wish I could have stayed longer! The service is top-notch, the food they serve is delicious, and Jerry does an amazing job. Also, nothing beats the sunsets on Jiquilillo Beach! Monty's made my visit to Nicaragua unforgettable and I felt very safe... More
