A bit apprehensive, as it was our first visit to Nicaragua....Camino Real exceeded our expectations. My husband and I brought our children ages 6 and 10, so safety was very important to us. Although the aircraft didn't land until after 10 pm, the shuttle driver was waiting outside the airport with a "Camino Real" sign. The shuttle itself was large, and seemed very safe. The driver didn't speak English, but the hotel itself was only 5 minutes or less from the airport. (we booked a different hotel for our way back, and I really wish we would have stuck with this one). It was 10 minutes to 11 pm and we hadn't eaten in many hours. The restaurant closed at 11...when we asked if we could get something to eat, 2 ladies shrugged their shoulders and showed us to a table! The next morning as we were relaxing by the pool, our daughter said to me "you know how you said this is a poor country, it doesn't seem like it!" (Rest assure her mind changed once we left Managua). The breakfast buffet in the morning was amazing, and definitely something for everyone ( everything from fruit loops and bacon, to hand made tortillas in front of us to be filled with beans and rice...not to mention the amazing omelette station....oh yes, please try the cinnamon french toast...mmmm). If we return to Nicaragua, I will not try another hotel in the area, this will definitely be the one. Proximity to the airport is important if you will be encountering rush hour at all, as our other hotel took 45 minutes from the airport one way, and 15 minutes back. Camino Real is so close, there won't be such a big discrepancy, 5 minutes versus 7! There really is no reason to search elsewhere...this hotel is great!!! The only tip I would suggest is to pay cash if possible, as the staff didn't speak any English...so when I asked for clarification about the total on my bill, I was left unclear, although it wasn't a large amount.
