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

Dear Michelle, Greetings from Jicaro Island. Thank you for taking the time to write your review about your recent stay with us. Thanks for pointing out the great local food and of our course the staff.

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

We booked a one-week stay (April 25-May 2) at Jicaro Ecolodge, Granada, Nicaragua, based on the descriptions and assurances on its website. After three nights, on the morning of April 28, we left, disappointed and disgusted. The amenities were grossly misrepresented, the accommodation uncomfortable and poorly designed, the food mediocre to merely acceptable. The website states that swimming in the... More

Dear Sondra: Thank you for sharing your experience with us on Tripadvisor. We are very sorry that we were not able to fulfill your expectations. Reading your review carefully, it seems that there was a misunderstanding of what the Jicaro Eco Lodge Experience would be like and what you were expecting. If you look at our website, at no point...

Great food. Terrific staff. Amazing location. The lodge is a very civilized and sophisticated way to have an adventure on Lake Nicaragua. We spent the first night of our trip here and it set the tone for a wonderful trip. Terrific for couples, friends or families!

We stayed here during our last days of a month long trip and what a wonderful place to end our holiday. I do agree with recent reviewers that the personal service provided us was beyond compare. My husband wasn't feeling well, so the dining staff consisting of Paula and Cynthia made him a wonderful chicken soup that was not on... More
