.....from first contact via email for our reservation & transportation .....until this moment ----day 3 of 5 ---- everything has been beyond perfection! The pictures do not do justice to the absolute beauty of this private island! The staff is beyond accommodating - I believe they know our needs even before we do!!!

My husband and I spent two nights at Jicaro and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Not everything lived up to our expectations, however, we still feel that this is a lovely place to stay and the whole team are truly wonderful. A driver picked us up at the Hotel Plaza Colon in Granada and transferred us to the pier. The young woman... More

The summary is that this place is wonderful -- the most relaxed we have ever felt on holiday, for sure. Food was significantly better than expectation (too good, given what happened to my waistline). Staff was absolutely amazing -- helpful, friendly, bilingual, talented. We really liked most elements of the casitas that are the rooms here. So -- strong recommendation... More

Incredible place. Amazing views and food. Very kind and helpful staff. Plenty of activities. A very unique ecolodge. Julio is an amazing guide! A very nicely detailed ecolodge on an island a short distance from Granada.

Beautiful place. I'm amazing at how they built such a lovely place under what must have been challenging circumstances. The casitas are gorgeous and very comfortable with great views of the lake. The service is exceptional as is the food. Coming from London with a busy and hectic lifestyle, this is exactly what I needed - utter peace and tranquility... More

Staying at Jicaro Island Ecolodge is a no brainer. The property is spectacular, the rooms are out of this world beautiful and clean. The designs of the rooms captured the local beauty of nature. You literally feel disconnected from the world. The service is outstanding. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate and make sure you are content... More

My wife and stayed at Jicaro Island for 3 days as we traveled through Nicaragua in December 2014. We had such a great time, we wished that we could have stay longer. Great location, great food, and most of all great service. Special props to Marlon, and Paola, they both made the stay a little extra special. Be sure to... More

If you want a peaceful, idyllic get away, this is it. A short thirty minutes from Granada, this Eco lodge features nine casitas built on an acre island. The casitas are beautifully constructed, with lots of wood and perched on the hillside overlooking the water. Service is impeccable. The menu is eclectic and ambitious, and takes local ingredients and transforms... More

Wow! Everything about our stay at Jicaro Island was unbelievable! I loved starting our Jicaro adventure with the boat ride from the port in Granada through the lake to Jicaro Island. It feels like you've arrived in paradise when the boat pulls up to the dock and the staff are waiting to welcome you with a traditional beverage. We arrived... More

The very best thing about this private island is the exemplary service. From the time we checked in at the port in Granada for the launch transportation to the hotel to delivery back to the port after our delightful stay at Jicaro, the service was thoughtful and congenial. Our first names were used by all personnel, making our stay feel... More
