I really cant say enough good things about this place if you're looking for a low key beach spot, in an awesome setting. Besides the fact that the hotel/hostel is clean and impeccably maintained, the beach is by far one on of the most beautiful spots i have ever stayed at. Delicious food, good internet, few people make this a... More

After a full on time partying in San Juan it was perfect to come here and chill for a night. The ocean view room has he biggest bed, best view and an awesome balcony with a hammock to relax in. The wifi is good and the rooms are clean. My only complaint would be that that the restaurant and accommodation... More

I was traveling with a friend and this hotel was recommended for us. It is a short drive from San Juan deal Sur but worth it if you're looking to get away from the crowds. I'm glad we stayed here! The service was great and it was very reasonably priced. The only thing is the generators went out every night... More

Amazing stay at Playa Hermosa. The spot is a little paradise. Pretty room, with view on the ocean and not expensive. Lot of hammock all around the restaurant ! Food is very good.

My boyfriend and I have been travelling through Central America for just under two months and decided as a treat we'd stay at a beautiful beach front hotel in Nicaragua. We were so delighted with what we found when we arrived at Playa Hermosa hotel and enjoyed watching a glorious sunset from the beautiful restaurant/bar area. The food and drinks... More

I stayed here for a night with my girlfriend. We have been travelling for 2 months and this was going to be a treat for us and a bit more expensive than we would normally pay and the location was perfect. During the night at about 2 in the morning we heard 3 loud explosions and sparks flew out of... More

This place is paradise! Great location by the waters edge in the middle of the jungle. An ideal getaway from the fast pace of San Juan. Friendly and helpful staff and management gave it the extra bit to push my review into the excellent range. The bar facilities will close most evenings early but a careful word to the staff... More

The place is BEAUTIFUL. The grounds are really nice and it's on a mile of beautiful empty private beach. It's great for a relaxing day and peacefulness. The whole beach has waves and you'll never compete for a surf. It's really nice for a day trip. I stayed the night and am glad I did - it was great to... More

Good surf, great beach a chilled out vibe and very nice accommodation. We had an ocean view on the bottom level and had a balcony and hammock which was great. I think all the private rooms have this set up. The rooms are simple but spacious. The only problem is that they shut the kitchen and bar at 7 from... More

The beach is nice but the hotel is not so good. The food and the room are OK but expensive. This is the only place in all Nicaragua where they include an extra tax of 7%+10%service. Very weird!!! Think twice before spend a night here...
