Have you ever gone to one of those restaurants where the theme is for the service to be bad and the waiters to be rude? Have you enjoyed it? If so, Maderas Village is the place for you! You will be lucky if anyone working at Maderas even makes eye contact with you during your stay, until it's time to... More

A visit to Maderas Village is akin to staying with a distant relative who clearly resents your presence on the occasion of a funeral. You will not be greeted warmly by any of the "staff," for meals you will be served whatever they bothered to stock up on after the "staff" have had their fill, you may even be able... More

I spent a week in Maderas Village and will highly recommend it to friends. The village is on top of the hill above a beautiful beach (about 5 - 8 min walk) where you can take surf lessons or just hang around one of the three bars. The all staff was super nice and accommodating. All the rooms are basic... More

I arrived stressed and tense and left a few days later a different person. Great vibes, great location, great food and great people. The catamaran day they arranged was unforgettable. It's the type of place you meet strangers over dinner, but stay up all night talking. No need for an alarm clock when you monkeys to wake you up for... More

Our stay at Maderas was truly authentic and awesome! We really enjoyed the communal areas, from the gorgeous open-air dining room to swinging in the second-floor hammocks. Our cabana was spacious and beautifully crafted, just like everything else on the property. The walk to the beach is great on the downhill, little bit of a pain on the uphill, but... More

I can't believe that it has been 6 months now since having my daughters wedding at Maderas Village. What a truly remarkable experience. We have approximately 50 guests come from locations all throughout the US. Getting to Nicaragua was the easy part, getting to the Village a bit tricky but all part of the experience. Maderas Village arranged transport from... More

During our Nicaraguan adventure we decided to stay at The Maderas Village for a few nights after a recommendation from a friend. Upon arrival at San Juan del Sur we were instructed to call Bennett so he could pick us up. Luckily we had found our own ride because when we called numerous times for directions (there is no signage... More

The perfect trip for someone looking to get far away from the city and off the beaten path. Realize, you will be in a jungle -- there will be a few bugs and some wildlife. But this is part of the experience if you're open to it, and will serve to get your mind off of work and onto simplicities... More
