Lake Apoyo by itself is a strange place, law to allow private properties all around nice shore is sick, well, they love it this way, OK they have it.
There are some better places around the lake than Monkey Hut. At least looking better.
I can hardly trust manager even if he is doing his best, that he is knowing all what to do, especially with bed bugs what we did have that night in beds of dorm. OK, he did not hide this problem in the morning and he said he is spending a lots of money every month to clean beds, but all other places they know what to do in such case - burn all mats and pillows... Seems they do not understand it can not get red of it by chemicals. But I am not here to tell them what they should do, just to say, they will probably never stop this problem, so expect bed bugs here.
We went to this place also on purpose they offer free kayaks. Well I work with kayaks so I know what kayak should look like. The do not have any kayak, just 2 pieces of completly destroyed kayaks with broken everything, what broken could be, including seat and paddle, missing drying bunge replaced by piece of plastic bag... Hight tax or any trouble to import kayaks to Nicaragua can not excuse they promote something they actually do not have in shape suitable for any safe usage.
Also group of americans on a team building and brain washing meeting occupied all place so it was not a place to relax.
It is pity this place looks nice on first impression, after a day and night it may disapoint you.
Also I would blame to owners, they are probably from Belgium - once you invest money, do it with all what is related, this is just occupying nice lake shore with BUGS in your business. Shy.
I am really sorry to write this review, because manager is nice person, but it was the only place with bed bugs, I check it every night since then.
