Staying down the road but the food here is so delicious we keep coming back! The staff is very friendly and amazing. Plus it's only steps to and overlooking our favourite beach in Nicaragua! Definitely try the jalapeño steak and the garlic fish - our two favourites! Highly recommend!!

The hotel is 1mn away from the Marsella beach with jungle surrounding. The little river nearby has crocodiles which is very exciting and howler monkey can be heard in the morning. The staff is fantastic and very lovely people. I loved that place. We only came here for a morning smoothie and decide to stay overnight. The place is perfect... More

My husband and I found Villa Mar on airbnb... Then found them online. We were very pleased when we arrived! It's clean, the food is amazing... And the family who runs and owns it are very kind! It's not a fancy place... Cold showers... But that's the norm in Nicaragua. Free wifi!!!! But if you want to relax on a... More

Anyone who isn't impressed with this place is a little crazy. Remover where you. Nicaragua has its drawbacks for sure but the good here is superb. The staff is family and they treat you very nicely. There is plenty of food and in a place where I can't find a good steak , their chirrasco is excellent. I drove rocky... More

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!
