The one bedroom villa we stayed in was wonderful--you get a kitchen, a living/dining area, and upstairs bedroom with nice balcony. There was an in-line little water heater in the shower (none for the rest of the villa), and it worked okay except that the shower head was cracked and shooting water out on the bathroom floor, and when I...

Upon checking into the "Resort and Spa," I asked what the "spa" offered. One man doing massages in a converted apartment. The deal here is this, this was a property developed for people to have second homes. They are now renting these homes out. The property has switched managers a few times and the homeowners are looking for a way... More

We arrived a day early at Laguna De Apoyo and our driver recommended we stay here. While the resort we'd booked for the following day was nice enough, for a little bit more we would have much preferred another night at this superb place! Everything from the gorgeous surroundings, to our own two story lodge, the restaurant with it's incredible... More

Came for the day to celebrate our anniversary. What a great place to relax. The views, pool and staff exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to go back. Loved listening to the monkeys, the waves rolling in and a wonderful cooling breeze. Great place to come and get away from it all.

I cannot say enough great things about Apoyo Resort and Spa after having stayed in February 2014. I'll preface the review by saying that, while traveling, my friend and I had a horrible experience at an adjacent property/B&B that prompted us to stay at the Apoyo Resort. We were robbed (cash only) and the proprietors and police did nothing to... More

My husbans and I have just returned from a three day visit to the Apoyo Villas. We had a wonderful visit there. The water of the lake is amazing and seems to have lots of healing qualities. Our villa was spacious, cosy with a good view to the lake. We loved it to be awakened every morning by the Howler... More

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. The villas and apartments are located in the crater of the extinct volcano amid trees and flowers, with abundant wildlife around (quite a dawn chorus!). The villa was extremely spacious, but had clearly seen better days (note the photos on the website are either out of date or are of the... More

We went swimming in Laguna De Apoyo, which is amazing place to visit. A member of the staff found us and gave us a sales pitch of the place so we decided to eat there. Gorgeous views, and definitely a beautiful place. Lots of birds, and sounds of monkeys, etc. Thats the good part. We ordered food and drinks. $4... More

Apoyo is a natural wonder unmatched perhaps anywhere else in the world. The lagoon itself was once a volcano. It is now like a large mineral bath, with crystal clear water the perfect temperature for bathing. The lagoon is surrounded by jungle and there has been very little development so the view from the beach is terrific! I am glad... More

This could be an amazing place, the location is stunning and the surrounding area really worth a visit. However the actual resort, which seems to have half a dozen names, is relatively expensive compared to other places in Nicaragua and to be honest in the state it currently is it is not worth this money. There are probably better places... More
