My wife and I are budget travellers and opted for Xalli because other places we tried to reserve were either full or didn't respond to our enquiries. Are we glad we did! We were in the junior delux room, which was impeccably clean, beautifully furnished, and very peaceful.
The owners were wonderful. Full of good advice, helpful and patient.
The restaurant menu was well varied, work several vegetarian options. We stayed for three days so had time to sample lots of the menu.
The grounds are lovely, elevated from the beach by about 10 big steps. The steady onshore breeze (wind) was welcome, keeping the heat and the bugs at bay.
We would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Ometepe.
