Early this month hubby and I spent one night here. We were going to stay longer but found there is very little to do in Playa Marsella which is not the hotels fault but hanging out on the deck of the hotel was not an option so we moved on. The chairs are all uncomfortable and the bugs are intolerable... More

We stayed at Hotel Villa Mar in January, 2014, for our first three nights in Nicaragua. We enjoyed the hotel and the secluded Playa Marsella. The beach is only a couple of minutes down a level road with a lovely view from the porch. The rooms vary in size. Ours was pretty small but the lovely porch serves as the... More

This place is advertised on airbnb, but when I tried to make a reservation there, they told me I had to find them on the internet and email them and make a reservation. It was difficult to find and seemed like they were using airbnb for advertising but avoiding the fees, which I don't think is cool. The location is... More

This review comes a little slow, our visit was several months ago. My husband and I stayed here for several days. We found this place by accident and found it to be a great choice.

Mi esposa y yo estuvimos aquí después de pasar tiempo en la playa. Era muy acogedor y relajante. No había música sonando y disfrutamos de nuestra cerveza, así que nos decidimos volver más tarde en el día para la cena Estén atentos ...

Exactly what we were looking for: great location at hidden beach close to the surfer beaches, amazing people, great food, and comport. Unforgettable chats on the porch with ocean view with our hosts sharing nicaragua's culture and history. That is exactly what i live about travelling!

My boyfriend and I spent a month traveling around Nicaragua from late December 2012 to late January 2013. We spent New Years week on the beach at Hotel Villa Mar and really enjoyed ourselves! We came across the hotel by chance online, and when we got there, we realized we'd hit the jackpot! The location is so much more relaxing... More

This was a very nice place to stay - we had a change in our travel plans and stayed here unexpectedly, but gratefully! The staff was very sweet and spoke English, which was helpful for us. The breakfast was included and delicious, with a beautiful view of Playa Marsella. Playa Maderas has more of a party/surf/social atmosphere, but Marsella had... More
