Upon arriving at Finca Santo Domingo, we were given a basement room that looked like a prison cell with no windows. We thought it was strange that they call this a "Matrimonial" room. We asked about better room and found out our matrimonial room was given away. The receptionist seemed to feel bad and said she would make sure we... More

we booked this based on a recommendation from another hotel and the lonely planet review. The Lonely Planet referred to the hotel as resort like (which they confused with the property next door named villa paraiso). Finca Santo Domingo staff is highly attentive and gracious. They give excellent service in the restaurant. The food is also very tasty. Generous size... More

This small hotel is nothing fancy but it sure is a great deal for the price. We're a half Puerto Rican half Nica family living in Nicaragua the past 10 years. We visit Playa Santo Domingo Ometepe almost every year and have stayed in several of the hotels on the humongous Cocibolca Lake beach in Ometepe. Finca prices, food, location,... More

The feel in this hotel as good when you arrive. However (and despite lonely planet review), the room was very disapointing. Dirty, dated, bugs, tiles in the shower broken, the fan was not properly fixed and we were affraid that it would detach from the ceiling. The only positive was the staff at the restaurant and the amazing cocktails. For... More

It's not worth the $45, the people that worked there were not very helpful and our bathroom smelled so bad we could not use it and had to go to the one outside. The only good thing is that it's in front of the beach Santo Domingo. NOT recommended at all.

The location of the Finca, right on the shore of Lake Nicaragua could provide a superb location to stay and relax. It has phenomenal potential to be a fabulous resort hotel, restaurant, and an escape from the outside world. Unfortunately the owner does not seem to see what is there, with well trained staff and a bit of investment this... More

Hotel is directly located on the beach Playa Santo Domingo. We stayed in a small cabana on the opposite site of the road. Cabana was quite with a small garden around it. Could have been a little bit cleaner but no bugs or else inside. Beach is beautiful and clean. Restaurant offered good food and wasn't too expensive. Note that... More

A relaxing 2 days here following the volcan concepcion hike lulled me into a false sense of security when checking out. Although the bill seemed a little steep I was in a bit of a rush and didn't give it the attention it deserved. It was only on the bus I realised I had been overcharged by over $20 through... More

The room on the 2nd floor was OK at first. The bed sheets were stained from day 1. We had ants invasions every night, although we move our food away after the first night. Wi-Fi was provided, but was constantly OFF. On our last night, there was a power failure on the island and the hotel had a generator for... More

Things did start off very well here. We had booked the room at the ferry terminal and arrived late just as the sun was going down. When they took us to their $35 dollar room we couldn't believe what we were seeing. We went around the back of the building where she showed us the room. She opens the door... More
