Very impressed with this place. The grounds were beautiful. A great restaurant on site with fair prices. The desk had waters and sodas for a very good price. Nice pool. The place is gorgeous at night the way it's lit up. There's a yoga, and an Eco pavilion on site. There's shuttles to town for a great price $2 each... More

I just felt in love with that place, the staff, the location, the surfspot and the lovely owner Lily from Canada. You can't get that any cheaper. A dorm for US 12.- with lots of space and patio. A pool, perfect WLAN, a Yoga-deck and a restaurant who serves food which is outstanding for that price. I travel north and... More

At the end of our trip, we tried to find something a bit more expensive and very comfortable. This place was exactly what we were looking for. It might seem a bit too expensive compared to similar options in other parts of Nicaragua, but for this region, it is a good deal! There are very comfortable rooms which are very... More

After reading positive reviews , I was expecting a lot more from casa maderas ecolodge but my expectations were not met. Food was average, similar prices to San Juan del sur but the quality didn't match up. Breakfast was the exception with fresh fruit ,yogurt and granola was the best. The pad thai was so watery it was more like... More

I stayed at Casa Maderas from April 30 - May 6 with a buddy of mine during a weeklong surf trip. He took care all of the logistical stuff such as making arrangements etc, but the lodge was able to suggest transportation for us which worked out perfect. Actual accomodations are rustic, yet modern and architecturally designed well. Its a... More

The good: It is within walking distance to Playa Maderas. It has a pool that is cleaned every morning. The rooms were nice and comfortable with the fan. It has a shuttle to get to and from San Juan cheaply. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good place to hang out and relax. The not so good: The walls are... More

We surely had a wonderful time at Casa maderas, oh yes we did! The generosity and the warmth of our hosts was really touching. It added sun to a permanently sunny sky.

Wanting to stay at Playa Maderas, I booked a night in a dorm here for 16 USD including a fairly average breakfast. This compares to $10 for a dorm or $25 for a private room at hostel Tres Hermanos located right on the beach at Playa Maderas. In comparison, the actual accommodation at Casa Maderas is superior but you are... More
