We just returned from spending six days at the Ocotal Beach Resort which were relaxing and very enjoyable. We found, contrary to many reviews that the rooms and grounds were well kept and clean. The restaurant (Roca Bruja) near the reception area had one of the finest views I've ever seen. We had the (included) breakfast buffet each morning which offered your choice of eggs, omelet, plantains, black beans and rice, dry cereal, toast, and french toast. The food was good. We had no other meals at the restaurant. The prices for drinks in the bar/restaurant were very reasonable at Beer and Drinks for about $2.50 and $5.00 respectively.
The rooms were comfortable and clean and everything functioned perfectly. The bathrooms were old but fully serviceable. The only thing I noticed that some folks (not us) might think was wrong with the bathroom was a couple of place where the tub was chipped, which in my opinion is certainly not worthy of downgrading the resort in a review.
The resort provides van transportation within the property. All we did was call the front desk and they sent the van; longest wait was less than 10 minutes. Don't worry about the hills, which are significant.
One word of advice: Check out the day before you leave if you have an early flight or plan to leave the resort early. The front desk does not open until 6:00 AM.
We had a great trip and plan to return two more times in 2013.
