“Staff and owners have changed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

I often stayed at Hotel Central, but walked out last week. I had always prefered the lovely 'cabañas' in the garden. They are very nice. Very quiet, surrounded by huge old mango trees, and tamarindo. It used to be $16 for 2. Now it's $24 ($40 with A/C). Clearly not worth it.

Small rooms inside are available w/bath 2 for $16.


The staff changes constantly. Bad sign.

The kitchen produces relatively good meals, and I go there for breakfast and excellent coffee.

Room Tip: Patio cabañas are the nicest. Overpriced.

I traveled for 6 weeks in Morocco and this was by far the best value of all the hotels I stayed in. I paid 7 dollars (during the rainy season) for a very clean room that was nicer than some places I later stayed for three times as much.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

We stayed at Hotel Central after arriving by ferry from Granada. Based on a recommendation by a fellow traveler we called ahead to make a booking and arrange for pickup from the Ferry. All worked out great, they called our name as soon as the ferry docked and took us in their pickup to the hotel.
The room only cost $14 a night and included the pickup. We left the next day for their sister Hotel "El Porvenir" in Santa Cruz. But hindsight, the Central was by far the best value for money that we found in all of Ompetepe, wish we stayed there longer.
The owner (or manager?) was very friendly, had good command of English.
We asked them to book the "El Porvenir" for us but they couldn't/wouldn't quote a price.

The food was pretty good, although we only had a little snack that night. But the fish that the couple next to us ate was looking very tasty.

If we ever return to Ometepe, we will make the Central in Altagracia our base.
