We spent the last day and night of our honeymoon in Jicaro. Both of us absolutely loved it. The place is just an oasis of peace: the lake, the island, the landscape, that water, the birds. It was even better that what we expected. Food is also outstading, so are the juices and smoothies. They also prepared a small and... More

Dear mmcardona, greetings from Jicaro Island. Not many people come to Nicaragua on their honeymoon, but the ones they do have an incredibly authentic and unique experience. And at Jicaro you will be able to enjoy all the creature comforts in an eco lodge setting. What a shame that you only stayed one night with us. Many guests that book... More

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we could not have found a better place. As everyone else who has reviewed this lodge has said, the staff are very courteous and entirely focused on making sure that your every need is met promptly and beyond your expectations. The environment is designed to provide as... More

Came here for part of our honeymoon and had an amazing experience. The arrival was magical as staff was waiting for us on the doc with fresh towels and cold drinks! The island is fabulous and the views are amazing. Great rooms, beds, private decks, yoga, massages, wonderful food and no joke: the best mojito I've ever had prepared by... More

Despite using trip advisor a lot for my own personal research I very rarely write reviews. However I was compelled to write about Jicaro Eco Lodge after a sublime experience. My friend and I stayed at Jicaro for 3 days at the start of our holiday in Nicaragua thinking it would be a good place to get over our jet... More

This review is long overdue. My girlfriend and I stayed at Jicaro in early 2015 and it was easily one of the best experiences of my life. By the end of the stay I felt that much of the staff was family. This is an incredible trip, please take it. Also, have realistic expectations. There's no TV's, AC, but there... More

We stayed at this beautiful lodge last December and will go back as many times as we can. The "cottages" were wonderful, clean and private. The food was 5* (try the avacado toast for breakfast) But the service was second to none. From the shuttle driver to the service team to the restaurant and Manager. Nothing was left to chance.

Great staff, food, rooms, resort. Great place to chill for a few days or longer if all you want is peace and quiet and a good book or take a canoe and explore the islands. Rooms are nice with decks overlooking the lake. Although there's no aircon - understandably so as it's an eco resort - the rooms are quite... More

The staff were amazing and went above and beyond to make our stay on the island relaxing. We didn't realize when booking that it was an all inclusive and were pleasantly surprised with the taste and the quality of the food. We originally booked 3 nights at Jicaro followed by 4 nights at Aqua Wellness Resort but after 2 nights... More

My family was at the Jicaro lodge for Spring Break. Initially we were only going to stay for 2 nights and so glad that we booked it for 4 nights instead, it is a very special place. It is an ecolodge so anyone expecting full service resort accomodations need not apply. That said the bungalows were incredibly peaceful, comfy beds... More

There's a lot to love about this island. We booked our stay through JetSetter and got a decent deal. The birds at night and the howler monkeys in the early morning provide a unique ambiance. There were only 2-3 other couple's besides us, and everyone was very nice. The staff do an excellent job of catering to their guests with... More
