Reading a few of the negative reviews, I think those folks' expectations are a little overwrought. Hotel Popoyo is exactly what I thought it would be. Quiet, simple, surf hotel with nice staff and decent enough food. This is Nicaragua folks, not Cabo. Clean, safe, all in all great. The beach is immaculate and practically devoid of other people. Spectacular... More

We stayed here for 1 week and have only positive feedback. The pool is lovely and kept very clean, the rooms are very comfortable, the food is great and the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and overall do a great job. They even drive you into town once a day when ever you wish. We couldn't recommend this hotel highly... More

We didn't stay at this hotel but after enjoying breakfast there I think we should have. The place was clean, service was friendly, food was delicious and the price was right. Looks like a great place to stay. Certainly worth a visit for the food.

I've stayed at hotel popoyo twice and absolutely loved it. Both times we have booked the luxury rooms which were very comfortable and nicely done out. The staff were all great and very helpful. As for the food, I couldn't fault it, especially the steak with jalepino sauce - keep meaning to e-mail them to get the recipe! A few... More

After having read the reviews on TA I thought Popoyo hotel would fulfill my expectations . The place itself is not bad but lacks comfort it seems like they have not gone all the way ... The prices are a bit expensive for what they offer especially in Nicaragua. 60$ the room , is expensive for what you get .... More

Finding a place for a group Of 22 people to stay is not An easy task in the remote area of Las Salinas, Nicaragua. When our nonprofit stumbled across Hotel Popoyo we were thrilled.

My boyfriend and I stayed for five nights and loved everything about the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Ramon is my favorite with his amazing smile and patience with my lack of Spanish. Marlena, Bexi and Flor always greeted us with a smile and never let our drinks get empty. The outdoor pool setting is breathtaking and... More

I love hotel popoyo. It is a relaxing beautiful hotel just across the road from one of Nicas most beautiful beaches. The staff a friendly and helpful, the pool is beautiful, and the restaurant is amazing. The room includes a fresh hot breakfast with fruit, coffee, and juice every morning. Stat here and you will not be disappointed!
