“1 Month Incredible stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This place is awesome. Amazing staff, views, food and world class surf on your doorstep! Found it hard to leave this place, even after a month! Pamela Anderson even had lunch there one day... this says it all...Even if surf is not what your looking for, the hammocks and cocktail specials get you into that awesome relaxed holiday vibe. We will be back again next year.

Incredible views 360 degrees around! Awesome service! Best food in nicaragua in my experience! Wonderful workers. Clean facility. Awesome people! Absolutely loved this place! If i had enough money to stay more than 3 nights here i would! I would recommend to anyone who surfs, pursues yoga, and just wants to relax!

This place is fantastic, the staff is awesome, the food is unbelievable and the view is ridiculous.I cannot recommend Mag Rock highly enough. If you are in the area then definitely stop by for a few nights (or 10 like I did...)

Check out the rock if the waves are small or rent one of their myriad of boards. The staff are a great crew to hang out with and everyone is friendly.

We came here to watch the sunset and have dinner- we were not disappointed. The views are spectacular. We made the most of happy hour drinks whilst watching a gorgeous sunset. We stayed for dinner which was delicious, despite the very limited and expensive menu (for Nicaragua standards) that they have to offer. Even if you don't rent a room here and are staying close by, it is well worth a visit.

We were unfortunate enough to not have a place to stay and we called Magnific Rock at the last possible moment - 3:30 P.M. leaving Managua. Were in luck and they had a room for us. We had been traveling for several hours from Leon and we had already tried a place that did not seem very safe. So we were very nervous about booking over the phone. Receptionist gave us great directions and luckily we made it just as the sun set. Food is absolutely incredible here! Only complaint was the restaurant staff seemed very busy, confused, and at times nonchalant about waiting on us. We sat for about 45 minutes one morning before someone came up to us to tell us that breakfast was over an hour ago! The views were incredible and plenty of places to walk or drive to surf. Our bedroom was a little like an old dorm room but the views more than made up for the bed.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view!

A very hip nice hotel at the top of the hill with an amazing view. The location is beautiful with 180 degree views of the surf and the magnificent rock which is definitely magnificent. Lots of surfing to be done a few steps down from the lodge. The hotel itself is OK, clean and confortable, make sure to get a room with a view. The restaurant serves up some great dishes but just a bit overpriced but worth it. It takes some effort to get out to the camp, but well worth the trek.

What an amazing stay we had. Besides the the great food, views and friendly staff there's not just good surf. Actually there are about 15 breaks within 15 minute walking radius. We had heard of the place and came to check it out for one or two days but simply weren't able to leave. The staff is well informed about the breaks to go. Besides that cleanliness, happiness and service 10 out of 10. Thanks so much guys, see you next year.
