Making reservations is almost impossible unless you make a long distance call. When you arrive it turns out your reservations are meaningless. You definitely want one of the front rooms near the lake. They're pleasant and airy. Rooms further up the path inland are suffocating cells. The beach here is filthy, but the local action is fascinating with women wasting... More

I worked in a camp similar to this in Mexico for over 15 years but without such great views. I think I paid $1248 cordobas for a lake view cabin for my son and I. Would have definitely paid more. Took a side trip to Ojo de Agua for a cool dip and cocktails. Tranquil and peaceful is 2 of... More

Stayed three nights in February. In rural community with no nightlife but a few restaurants and stores. Work fine for us as we went to bed early most nights and had a rental car to get anywhere we wanted to go on island during the day. Seen others walking at night with no issues but not sure how comfortable I... More

So I stayed at this hotel with my family in March 2012. We arrived at the island at night and before we arrived we had no preparation whatsoever as to where we would stay so we asked the guides near the ferry and he recommended this place. As we were arriving to the hotel it looked very nice and hey... More

We can definitely recommend Hotel Playa Santa Martha. The location right at the beach, very friendly staff, good food and cool bears-What else can you ask for? You can see the two volcanoes and the san jose ferry stops only a few minute's walk from here. (From Moyagalpa it is only a 15 minute's bus ride). There are other restaurants... More

To be honest, the hotel has a very nice location and was reasonably priced for a private cabin. However, I need to share an experience that occurred during our stay. My female friends had been invited to drink with the owner's son and when I (male) joined them, the owner's son asked me to translate his inappropriate comments to the... More

I have recently visited the Hostel and I was well impressed with the friendly staff and the environment. For only 15 $ for 2 persons a night you get a good sized cabaña wuth had a double bed and a bunk bed as including bed sheets. The Lake is only one minute walk away and you get the nicest view...

We booked this place by telephone just before we arrived on Ometepe. We were given a beach front casita which is just a few get away from the waters edge. The small beach is clean and isolated which was ideal. Swimming in the lake was great fun especially as our accommodation was on the waters edge. The place is in... More

We found the hotel at our guide but had no feedback about it. This was our first stop in paradise Ometepe. Nice terrasse and cabin in front of the beach. The service was splendid, Abraham and Odel were fantastic hosts. Odel provided excellent service and Abraham excellent and funny conversation. Advantages: You are very close to El charco Verde (20...
