We made a last-minute decision to stay in the Villas at Apoyo on our way to Granada. It's fairly hidden, so we were glad to have taken a taxi, rather than attempting to drive and find it ourselves. While a bit remote, with not a lot of dining options, it was a great location to simply relax or hike around and see some of the scenery. There was also the option for day trips into Granada, so we took a boat tour around Lake Nicaragua one day. The staff at the Villas were very helpful in providing information on whatever we needed. The restaurant on site was fine and offered food that most anyone would be happy with, and offered beautiful views of the crater lake below.
The room was quite spacious and included a full kitchen which was nice even if we only used the refrigerator. Everything was clean and comfortable as well. It was very enjoyable to sit out on the balcony, and we even got an up close view of a large group of howler monkeys one morning while they swung through the trees for several hours.
Overall, we would definitely recommend the Villas at Apoyo if you are looking for a relaxing out-of-the way spot.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villas at Apoyo, tucked unobtrusively in the hillside overlooking the Laguna, are some of the most unique hotel accommodations in Nicaragua. We offer 1, 2 and 3 bedroom villas and apartments, some with fully equipped kitchens, to accommodate whatever size of group you may have. The Villas are situated in the dry tropical forest of Nicaragua which is home to Howler monkeys and a variety of tropical birds.The Grill, a small restaurant at the upper pool, has a variety of fresh and healthy foods. Try the Nachos Grande or the Chinese Chicken Salad while enjoying a beautiful view of the laguna. New at The Villas at Apoyo is our 5-station, Low Ropes Challenge Course. The Challenge Course was built to encourage participants to grow at both the team and individual levels. Our Low Ropes course focuses on communication, problem solving, and leadership. Every member must participate in order to complete the five tasks, and in doing so, inspires confidence in each other. Our hopes are that these skills will be carried by the participants to be used in their daily lives. We also have a new Game Room near the pool area so our guests can emjoy a game of Billiards, Darts or enjoy one of our many boards games. For your convenience, food and beverage can be served from The Grill. A new addition to our services is a fully equipped convention center with seating of up to 150 persons.
