First time in two weeks we were greeted by staff perfunctorily and not warmly. We were "a chore" to be dealt with.
Most comfortable beds of our 2-week trip and spacious area in our villa.
Views not there until taken down to the laguna on open bench-seated van...you need to h

Apoyo Resort for a very reasonable rate provides comfortable and basic rooms with housekeeping facilities exactly as advertised. The resort is not new but well maintained. The grounds are scattered on the wall of the caldera and consist of 30-40 villas of one, two and three bed

Hola Carl C, Apoyo Resort thanks you for the time you took to review us on trip advisor! We really appreciate your nice description of our whole facilities. We wee you are a nature lover since we are in the middle of a nature reserve where animals some time even play with humans, you could experiment with monkeys.

I'm rating Apoyo Resort based on the value for the money. It's not equivalent to a 4 or 5-star resort typical in the USA, but it's clean, safe, comfortable, and offers lots of extras for a bargain price.

I came on a weekend and didn't expect much except crowds and mediocre qual

amazing views and rustic accomodations in this cool resort located right inside the caldera of the appoyo volcano and on the waterfront of appoyo lagoon. We just visited for the day which is possible if you just pay a small visitors fee, then you can use their lakefront area.

Hello Robnkim, Apoyo Resort appreciates your feedback and hopes you´re doing well! Right! We are located within a caldera of a volcano that erupted 23,000 years ago.

We didn’t stay at the resort, but took the advice of our BnB hostess to take the shuttle up the mountain to the restaurant near the swimming pool, to have a drink and watch the sunset over the Laguna .
The shuttle was efficient and we got an impression of the resort,

Dear Scorpiogirl2, Hope you are doing more well! We appreciate your feedback even when it does not say many good things about us. We understand your dislike about to pay a minimum consumption of C$200.00. This policy is just because we do not charge any entrance fee and sometimes there are many people that only want to drink a coke and then stay all day long using pools, pool beds, our docks, etc, etc. As you may know, this is a business survives by selling food and drinks and the maintenance of the facilities comes from our sales, so we do not charge any entrance fee. About the 15% you saw charged at the end your bill; it didn´t belong to TIP, it was the amount of taxes we have to pay to the government of Nicaragua. We used to put 10% tip but it is not mandatory. You pay it if you agree. We recommend you for next time at any place, to call the restaurant manager to see how to figure an issue out. We do not want only to give excuses, we assure you we are going to talk to all our waiters and waitresses to call the manager by their own to avoid any customers dislike. Once more, thank you for your feedback. Best Wishes,

Does this resort only have the villas that you see on their website, or is there a main "hotel-style" building with individual rooms as well? I am asking to see if this place would be suitable for a small conference of 20 people. Thanks in advnace for any help or response.
Hola Lesly, Apoyo Resort actually has villas and apartments. These apartments work like hotel-style rooms and can easily fit your party of 20 people. However, our villas are not a bad option for you but a cheaper and even better fitting option. For example, in one of our three bedroom villas, you can fit six people (two in each room) Every room would have its own private bathroom, A/C, ceiling fan, TV and for sure it own locking door which gives you a 100% privacy. In the middle of the rooms, you would find a spacious living area and and full equipped kitchen. After this explanation, In can tell you that Apoyo Resort is perfect option for your conference; nature environment, nice building rooms, quiet, hot spring lake, tasty food, etc. Do not hesitate to ask or request for a quote. Looking forward to hearing about you soon Apoyo Resort
