This was my favorite hotel of two weeks in travel in Nicaragua. Every single person that works here was beyond charming and helpful. The rooms are cute and breezy. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. The food was yummy and the internet was amazingly fast. I only wish I had stayed longer.

I can not say enough good things about Montys. I stayed here with my GIVE group and I wish I never had to leave! The rooms were very clean (just the occasional dog or cat visitor but I didn't mind!). The pool was a welcome relief from the hot HOT Nica sun and the food was wonderful. If you want... More

I knew I would have a good time on this vacation. But I didn't realize just how much I would experience the adventure of a lifetime. Monty's has it all. Hammocks and an endless beach to unwind and do nothing all day, a fun staff and bar and dancing to party the night away, surf lessons, volcano excursions, opportunities to... More

There is something about this place that makes you feel like you could stay forever- from the helpful and friendly staff, waking up to the sound and view of the Pacific Ocean, and ending off each day watching surfers under the sunset, the list goes on! I have been many places- Paris, Germany, New York, Venice, but honestly think this... More

We stayed there on a trip to train local volunteer firefighters in the area, with a charity called GlobalFire. Monty's is a hub for "voluntourism", and we met a great many interesting and like-minded folks. It's off the beaten path enough to deter the all-inclusive/cruise shipper set, but accessible enough ($110, 3.5 hour cab ride from Managua, cell reception &... More

If you think Nicaragua is off the beaten tourist path, then Monty's is off the beaten Nicaragua tourist path! At the end of a 12 km dirt road, way up in the NW corner of Nicaragua, it's right on the beach with rustic but comfortable accommodations, a beautiful beach and as much--or little--activity as you wish. If you want to... More

I was here for a week with GIVE Volunteers, and it was absolutely incredible! The staff is fantastic and it was an amazing way to see the town of Jiquilillo. It is right near the ocean and there is opportunity to surf. It is an incredible community.

I was there 5 years ago, and it was fantastic. Monty sends a van to pick you up at the airport in Managua. The beach is long, wide, fairly deserted, and has wonderful breaking surf and lots of birds. The accommodation is rustic but in keeping with the local village, his staff are pleasant, the surf lessons were fun, and... More

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
