4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I payed about 140 dollars for one night which I thought was kind of high. They have a business center where you can use internet for a cheap price. The massages offered at the spa are also very reasonable in pricing and they have a gym on site which isn't bad at all for a hotel gym. The pool was decent and the hotel food was also pretty good. I spent about 15-20 dollars per meal including a tip. Very close to the airport which makes everything convenient. I got a good night's sleep and the place is quiet. I saw some volleyball female players from Tennessee while I was there and they seemed kind of young. So this tells me that the place probably has a reputation of being safe as well. Overall I would recommend it if you don't care too much about paying 100 bucks a night.

Delightful hotel in Managua. The restaurant is great, the gym is clean, and the staff is very friendly and respectful. They held our big backpacks for us when we went to Little Corn for a few days, which was beyond helpful.

We stay here the night before fliying out of Managua airport. The hotel shuttle was was helpful. At arrival they picked us up from the car rental and when we left they drove an extra trip since no shutttle was scheduled when we should leave. Quick service when they had to repair the bath room light and nice food in the restaurant.

Very convenient to the airport, this hotel has a free shuttle. There are good sized clean rooms and an excellent breakfast. I also enjoyed a wonderful, low priced massage. The staff seemed eager to please.

Spent 10 days driving Nicaragua. Camino Real was reserved for last night prior to departure. It is located towards the direction of Managua, approx. 1 mile from airport, rather than the direction of the junction to Tipitapa. It has a LARGE white sign along the highway, which we missed and drove right past, as we came from the direction of Managua city. The eyes go to “PHAROAH’S CASINO”, a rather opulent building, which sits directly in front of Camino Real and shares highway access. Incidentally, we passed the airport went into an unlined traffic circle (only vehicle in the circle), and were then the target of a “police shakedown” for money, as to being to one side or the other of the lane, to proceed through the circle. The shakedown was doing a rather hefty business. DO NOT MISS THE CAMINO REAL TURNOUT.

Camino Real had the cleanest rooms, we encountered during our Nica visit. Room had a “strongbox”, but no mini frig. There were ice machines which were appreciated. Beds were clean, firm, and comfortable. An additional pillow would have added an element of luxury. I killed 1 cucaracha, big and fast, in a “commons area”, but this was our first Nica room / house without the requisite spiders, ants, cucarachas, etc. (Remember this is Nicaragua.) And, it was actually clean under the bed!

Pool was a nice feature and even had a “deep end”. There was a separate children’s pool. We were the only guests using the pool. Room towel use was expected.

Lighting after dark was very dark. When we departed room at 4:30 AM to go to lobby for airport transport, it was actually a little spooky. They pulled coffee and fresh juice, out on a cart, along with pastries, as breakfast was not yet open. This was appreciated. Van driver was helpful with luggage and courteous.

They have “happy hour” nightly, 7-9 PM, with 2 for 1 drink purchases. There was even live music. Due to early flight, we went to bed at this time!
The grounds and gardens were noteworthy for their attractiveness. Comfortable chairs were available at the pool area and under roof, in open air.

Parking at Camino Real was in a gated area with an attendant. This is an asset for guests with vehicles, and we used their lot temporarily, while checking in, and getting prepared to return our rental vehicle to the airport. Incidentally, we had an attempted vehicle theft / break in, within 1 hour of our arrival in Nicaragua. DO NOT leave your vehicle unattended. We were in a supermarket lot (Super Pali / Masaya), which had multiple security personnel, present and visible. This was an expensive lesson and overshadowed our entire Nicaragua visit.
Incidentally, we inquired at the desk, before returning our rental vehicle, as to whether we could get airport pickup to return us to Camino Real. Desk staff could not relate to our request and oriented towards service from the Hotel. We walked the highway in order to return to Camino Real. We noted no “phone bank”, in the airport, for hotel contacts.

Also, tap water in hotel was drinkable. Bottle in room for “$1.00” should have been complimentary, if it is going to be placed there. Restaurant food was good, not “cheap”, but not overly “pricey” either. Sandwiches and entrees $7.00 and up, which could go up to approx. $20.00. They apparently have a breakfast and lunch buffet. We were not present during those times and ordered from the menu.

All in all, from our experience, Camino Real was good hotel to use for airport arrivals / departures, and for possible Managua day excursions, if that is what you wish to do.

Room Tip: Enjoy the grounds. Rooms are pretty much for sleeping or desk work.

I arrived on December 24th, 2011. This hotel is awesome. It' clean, rooms are big, bathroom are big and clean. The staff are very friendly. The only bad things is that they don't have a 24 hour cafeteria or restaurant. But I had an amazing time. The pool is beautiful. Free Wi-Fi. I was here for 3 days and my waitress aleady knew what I wanted. I forgot her name. Tennis court, Spa and lobby are great. Near to the Airport and to Downtown Managua. It's also only $60 a day. But, you have to buy your breakfast, lunch and dinner. But overall I would come back to this hotel and would recommended it. The language wasn't a problem for me since I speak Spanish and English. I have family in Managua but I needed a few days for myself.
