We cannot say enough to express how wonderful our stay at La Veranera was. Jim, Nick and Ina were wonderful hosts who consistently went out of their way to ensure we were having a pleasant stay. This included everything from checking in on how our meals were, making sure we had coffee set up before we left at 4 AM... More

This hotel or called it a 'Guesthouse' isn't worthwhile a good review. After a long ride on a bumpy road we heard we were not welcome because the room was overbooked. Even we paid $ 90 in advance already in July and the room was confirmed. Why? We don't know. We don' t feel this guesthouse is treating their guests... More

Dear Merian, Once again we want to apologize for overseeing your reservation. The room was overbooked due to an honest mistake. It is a shame that you did not take us up on our offer for an alternative room, as this would have given us the opportunity to prove that we care very much about our guests and do everything...

We cannot say enough great things about La Veranera. Several highlights: 1) Nick, who runs the B&B, does an incredible job. He made wonderful dinners each night (family style) and also good mojitos 2) Gonzalo made tasty daily breakfasts 3) Love the pool & pool area 4) Relaxed atmosphere 5) Honor system at the bar 6) We stayed in the...

Many times the pictures of a place do not accurately represent it. That is the case as well for La Veranera and Playa El Coco except the pictures do not do La Varenera or the beach justice - they are both much better than a picture can capture. In addition the staff, Nick and Gonzalo do an amazing job running... More

This hotel is beautiful, directly on the beach with a swimming pool. We walked the beach several times but hung out at the pool. The beach is secluded, very few people and the manager is a great help. He makes great mojitos as well. THere is a German restaurant next door with really good food. The sunsets are gorgeous. There... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and enjoyed it very much. The location is great. Nick and Gonzalo do a very good job and are helpful. Breakfast by Gonzalo and the family style dinner cooked by Nick are great! The prices of food and drinks are ok, but not cheap. At first we had the room directly next to the... More

Thank you for the good review! We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologize for the misunderstanding with the taxi driver. Our regular driver did not let me know that he was unable to provide the transportation himself before contacting another driver. This had never happened to us before and I am sorry you... More

We loved everything about this hotel. It's right on the perfect beach with good surf, a perfect pool with lounge chairs to relax and nice and spacious rooms. Also our hosts Nick and Gonzalez did everything to make our stay perfect. Nick arranged a turtle tour for us, which was fantastic, we spotted so many laying their eggs. One of... More

In El Ostenal we could not find a suitable place, In the Parque Maritimo El Coco they offered only one overnight stay. But we have got from the reception the advice to ask La Veranera. Already in the darknes we ring at the door. Nick opened and invited us to stay several days! A dream has started to fullfill. Recreation... More

This tropical paradise is more than we expected. Arrived on a Sunday afternoon, following the perfect driving directions in from Managua. We rented the "master bedroom" with French doors opening up to the Pacific Ocean (the house has 4 rooms available). But what really called to us was the pool. We were hot and it was so inviting. It did... More
