“Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The hotel is a gem in the middle of Managua, small and intimate with friendly staff and owners. Rooms are decorated tastefully and the bathroom is oversized. I loved seating on the portal in the mornings having breakfast and drinking tea, all included in the price. The woman at the front desk was always extremely helpful, calling cabs, sending faxes, whatever we needed. Rare find.

I just stayed at the Hotel Boutique Villa Maya for two weeks and have nothing but good things to say about my time at the hotel. Spacious clean rooms, courteous staff that provides good service, good internet access, and a garden to allows you to feel and hear the peaceful sounds of nature. My favorite part was having breakfast in the morning contemplating the garden and listening to the birds sing.

It was our first trip to Managua, so we decided to give ourselves a treat. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful, though the hotel isn't far from a main street where it's easy to catch a taxi. The staff are so kind and helpful! The day clerk went out of her way to find a good map of Managua for us and gave us some great tips for catching a cab and getting around the city. The room was quite comfortable and quiet. We highly recommend this wonderful place!

We live in Nicaragua year round and when the cliff side view and beaches get a little stale:-) we head into Managua for a few days. This small hotel in an old colonial home is beautiful. The staff there are a group that really knows what customer service is. The neighborhood is quiet but close to Ola Verde and other great places. The manager Orlando should be offering instruction to other hotel employees in Nicaragua

The Hotel Boutique Villa Maya is very close to urban Managua. i was in a single; a large airy room, with a lovely bathroom and shower. Absolutely as clean and pristine as a brand new facility. I had a beautiful view over a clean pool, with greenery and lots of flowers. They provide a Spa-like atmosphere with quiet staff and prompt service. Internet accessibility is a plus. Great coffee and food. The only place to stay in Managua!

From the reservation booking to my stay checkout the VIlla Maya delivered personalized attention, care assistance and comfort.

Under owner/proprietor Vilma Barriento's careful watch, from arranging pick up at MGA to getting us out for dinner at Ole Verde (certainly one of the top restaurants in Nicaragua and with Vegetarian as well as Vegan dishes, my favorite).

Mercedes, Orlando and Carlos (the desk staff took care of laundry on short notice and always had a libation n hand when I was ready to take a break.

The grounds are private and lovely.

The pool was the perfect escape for afternoon heat (not intolerable at all, but much easier to take when you can dunk in a cool pool).

The Internet connection made Skype and email a snap and there is a small client computer/printer to grab those eticket and early check in docs.

The kitchen staff made fresh juices whenever requested and I got hooked on Vilma's vegan tostada with a fried cilantro crush served on top. Breakfast fruit plates (eggs and such for those who eat them) made the start of the day easy.

Located in North Central Managua, this ranks as a great relaxing escaope for business or tourist travelers.

I look forward to a return trip

We have stayed in Managua many times. The stay at the Hotel Boutique Villa Maya was the best. The location is in an upscale, very quite residential area. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. The service is beyond great. The staff spoke excellent English.

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms. Both were great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Charming Boutique Hotel in Managua. The rooms remodeled colonial house with a beautiful tropical garden and swimming pool. It counts with a total of nine private rooms, all with private bathrooms, water heated with solar energy, air conditioning, TV with cable, wireless internet, working desks, alarm clocks, telephones, security boxes, etc. Some of them have their own private balcony that opens to the garden and/or swimming pool. The hotel: An Oasis in the city. Our location is ideally for everybody: We are steps away from the city but not in the city! So if you have business downtown, it is a 10 min drive. But if you want to enjoy nature, have a tranquil time to relax and be pampered, Villa Maya is the perfect place. We are close to national attractions (Volcan Masaya, 10 min drive, Granada, 30 min drive) and local malls, shops and the best restaurants (Galerias Santo Domingo) in Managua just 5 min away. The owners: We are a mature couple with over 30 years together. Vilma is an artist from Guatemala and Luis is a lawyer from Nicaragua. Both met and studied at UC Berkeley in the Bay Area in California. Our goal is to provide a boutique hotel option for Managua giving a personalized service to all of our guests while ensuring that our operations are respectful with the environment.*Breakfast a la carte ... more   less
