Literally the best view in the area. I lived the amazing view and the service was good too. I didn't stay at the hotel just went for a sunset dinner and I gotta just say. THE VIEW IS BREATHTAKING. A must see if you are staying in the area

The biggest problem I have with this hotel is that it is not a resort, but a hotel. There are very limited amenities and activities, and it's a rather lengthy walk to the beach. The included breakfast is good, not great, and it is a couple miles from the nearest town (Playa Coco). With all that being said, I would... More

I would say this is more hotel and not a resort. When I think of resort I think of wet bar by the pool, activities during the day, music, fun atmosphere. There was none of that here. It is a nice quiet place with beautiful views of the ocean from the cliffs. There is a walking trail to the beach.... More

We ended up staying here the night of March 29, 2014 due to issues with US Airways. The flight was cancelled and this is the hotel they put us up in for the night. Our room looked like it had not been opened in many months. There was so much dust, dirt and bugs that we were afraid to take... More

The views and location are amazing. If you can live with the need for much more maintenance, this is worth a 3 star hotel price range. If you pay more or cant overlook the cracked concrete, leaves in the pools, Jacuzzis and fitness equipment that dont work etc, etc you will be disappointed. I am staying now in the villa... More

We spent an enjoyable week at Ocotal in late February of 2014. Myself, my wife and our four year old daughter enjoyed ourselves very much. We (minus our child) had stayed at Ocotal several years prior to this visit, however this time around the difference was that we chose a Bungalow suite adjacent to the path traversing due north to...

The photos do not do justice to the spectacular views that you see at Ocotal Beach Resort! The birds and iguanas are plentiful and add to the experience, so you will always want to have a camera handy. We found the breakfasts and other meals to be delicious, especially the seafood. Our servers, Alvaro and the others were a lot... More

The hotel is a nice hotel, if you paid about half what they are asking. There are major maintenance issues, like broken stairs, rotting porches, and dangerous pathways. Not a good spot to bring your kids. Like I say, if I paid half, I'd be happy, but at these prices I expected a lot more. The restaurant is ridiculously priced... More

Expect a resort, get a hotel. Beautiful views of the ocean, and lovely location. Beware of the rooster restaurant- they gave us shots of water (instead of tequila). Had hot water in bathroom, and wifi at the reception.

As mentioned in prior reviews this hotel has great views but it is worn down and could use some rehab. The bathrooms could use a make over but are not that bad and the pool bar that is by the beach has not been operating for at least a year or so. We stayed in room 401 which is on... More
