This property is a great place to rest and relax. It is all inclusive and very busy. It has a nice pool and location on the beach. We enjoyed relaxing under the palm trees in the shade away from all the crowds. Excellent massages and the restaurant was ok. Service was horrible but we noticed that everywhere we stayed in...

This beach side resort will appeal to those who enjoy mega beach resorts spread out over many acres, with buffets filled with lots of food. This is not my preferred style of resort, but we were traveling as a group during this portion of our 18 day Nicaragua trip, and the itinerary called for a couple of nights here. The... More

This is a great location to visit - so you might wonder about the title of the review. There were lots of things that I could go on about (took forever to check-in, food is is not very good, internet does not work in the rooms, hot water was spotty, etc) - the reality is that this is one of...

We heard from a friend of ours about this place. Very secluded, if you stay out of the main building it almost seems like you own your own room! Only 2 rooms per entrance so you barely see your neighbors. Very nice staff all around. I gotta say the only bad thing was a waitress, one time - other than... More

Our stay started off dismal... The room was dirty even the bed. I was furious after driving 2 hours with a driver we swear shouldn't be driving in the dark. The next morning the room was clean and stayed that way. We paid for the upgraded package and we were staying in a suite up by the beach but our... More

I am going to be straight with you. This is an all inclusive resort that is not all inclusive. At least not the wristband I had. Almost everything is an exorbitant price. Using the phone, using the sauna although the gym is free, losing a plastic key, forgetting to return a towel or the little paper that says towel for... More

I was here for 2 nights during a 7 day circuit tour of Nicaragua. The amenities are great, the room was very good. The bungalows are all a few short steps from the beach and are very clean. To note, the wi-fi is only available at the reception area (for an additional cost).
