“Awesome place !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Spent two weeks over there with some surfer friends.
The place is quiet and very nice.
Beautiful view on the sea and sunset. Excellent food & drinks. Great swimminig pool and relaxing area.
Rooms are very clean and cosy.
Surf guides are great - we got the chance to surf all spots around with always the best conditions. A lot of magical sessions remain in my mind: in particular this one day boat trip to Vera Cruz, and this other day we surfed "El Penon" (not quite sure of the spelling but it is a long left just after el Astillero).

Beautiful bungalows, fabulous food, sunshine & surf = perfect vacation spot. I don't even surf, but would return for the rest and relaxation that I found there. Most days, I was the only person on the beach watching the experts guide and encourage my daughter on their surf boards. Yoga under the thatched roof by the pool and afternoon laps and naps was the perfect agenda for this little old lady. Watching the sunsets from the well-placed hammocks while listening to the exciting stories from the surfers was followed by a delicious dinner with new friends from all around the world. It's a perfect family atmosphere!

We've been coming every summer in Las Plumerias for 4 years now !
Etienne, called Esteban by the friendly locals, Emeline, their daughter and Lionel will welcome you in a special and magic place where you'll enjoy the pacific breeze and the early morning waves on sunrise.
We've been travelling all around the world and to be honest it's the first time we find a place that gives us every thing we need: sunshine, extremely perfect waves for surfing, fun, fishes, warm water, friendly locals, astonishing landscapes, bluffing sunsets and most of all, no one in the water !
Bungalows are very comfortable, built in a mix of traditionnal and modern way, you'll feel like in a cocoon, especially if you have the chance to get the one in front of the brand new swimming pool facing the ocean ;)
Gladis and Marta will feed you as kings and queen, every day you'll get a new dish made with love and "savoir faire" and if you're lucky enough you'll get the famous fresh grilled lobster !
Can't wait to come back next year !

It was my first time surfing in Nicaragua and I will definitely go back!!! Las Plumerias = PARADISE :)
I have been there with two other friends. To organize the trip, we had so many questions and the owners Emeline and Etienne were very patient to ask all of them.
Here are the main reasons why this is such an amazing place:
- I was there for a month and surfed every single day !!
- perfect surf guides to show us the spots and explain us the conditions.
- great surf quiver if you want to rent surfboards
- the bungalows are really comfortable (good beds, spacious, private terrace, super clean)
- the swimming pool is the best place after a surfing session, especially because you can enjoy a fresh beer at the same time and watch the sunset!
- Food is delicious!! I have eaten the best lobsters in my life. Etienne is going to buy fresh fish and seafood at the fish village Astillero. I love food and I was not disappointed.
- great price-quality ratio
- awesome atmosphere

Best place to stay on this stretch of coast in Nicaragua. I ve stayed here 3 times each for a week at a time at different times of the year and each stay was incredible. Spacious, clean bungalows, great ocean views, super yummy food all for a really reasonable price. Owners Emmeline and Etienne are gracious and accommodating hosts who will make sure you have a wonderful stay. This is a great surf spot and having stayed here with my wife and daughter who don t surf as much as i do, we found many fun things to do ( horse back riding, zip lining, pool....ect....). All meals are served family style which allows you to meet interesting people from all around the world
Overall, a amazing place to stay with great people

Room Tip: The honey moon bungalow is a more spacious and has a beautiful bathroom

Have been here for the first time. Well set up surf camp- pool, lounge area, books, etc. The included meals are amazing. Local seafood was incredible, I cleaned the plate even when fish was prepared, it was that good. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. I was the only beginner taking lessons at the time and my lessons were very helpful, great feedback. This surf camp is definitely on the short list of ones I would return to over and over again.
