“Amazing Hospitality, Stunning Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We spent five days in Mal Pais at the lodge. It was well worth the epic journey from Ometepe in Nicaragua to get there. The Lesser family are wonderful hosts. They treated my children with such kindness. They welcomed us with a complimentary drink. The breakfasts were excellent and substantial. Our room was very nice as well. They have a unique pool that provided us numerous hours of relaxation and enjoyment. As the other reviews attest, this is a wonderful place to stay.

LA HACIENDA LODGE gave me one of the best holiday rest ever. Next to the best beach I've been , it's a place to have fun with friends or couple accompanied by the best service (chilean owners)... 100% recommended!! (You will want to return)

What a wonderful place -- stone, rock and natural woods in a fabulous tropical garden setting. Gorgeous pool is actually two pools, with a palm tree on an island in the middle. Our room (#5) was exquisite, with flagstone walls, a wicker bed, an exceptionally luxurious bath complete with jacuzzi tub and a view of the pool. It's a family-run place, recently under new management. The really went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and catered to our every need with kindness and grace. I have NEVER been so pampered. They made us feel so special that it really was one of those rare places that we will always remember.
