My husband and I just returned from eight amazing nights spent at Apoyo Resort. I began my booking process last summer with Jose. he was quick to respond and very helpful. We were able to get a rate for a one-bedroom villa a bit cheaper because of the number of nights we were staying. Like others, our breakfast was included.... More

We just returned from an amazing family vacation in Nicaragua. We stayed for 6 nights at Apoyo Resort. Our villa was semi open air with air-conditioned bedrooms, nice big showers, kitchen, front porch seating area, large living area and second level covered balcony with seating. The first day we were there we saw Howler Monkeys. The view of the Laguna... More

Upon arrival the first thing I noticed that the resort is quite far from Granada and Masaya, about a 20-30 minute drive. The pros to this are that it is quiet, relaxed and there really are howler monkeys on site that you can see and hear while walking to the villas. The cons are that you have to arrange transportation... More

After arriving at Laguna de Apoyo and finding out that Casa Aromansse had given away our reservation, our party of 5 ended up at Apoyo Resort. Glad we did!

Wonderful experience in a beautiful location. Restaurant was first rate in a third world setting of oxen carts and cows / horses in the roads. Wonderful areas to visit nearby including volcanos, small towns, ceramics and artisans. A trip to the coast was spectacular, but the quiet of our exclusive volcano crater lake was memorable.

This place is better for families/couples and not for backpackers / young people. Very isolated. The room was extremely full of bugs (including in tr beds). The quantity was unbearable. The water in the showers were burning. Wifi wasn't working for most of the time. No supermarkets and either food or water are only sold at the hotel's restaurants.

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate all kind of comments, so this helps us to improve each day. As you mentioned, we're a resort for families but also for all kind of people. About bugs , these are out of hands since this resort is located in a nature reserve. Once more time thank you... Apoyo Resort More

Poor service, decent rooms. Over priced, terrible food. The only activities are the on the lake and enjoying the sun - which you can do at any of the other, much cheaper resorts. DO NOT ACCEPT LIFTS OR ANY FAVORS BY LOCALS OR TOURISTS ALIKE.

Loll in a hammock watching the antics of Howler monkeys in the surrounding trees while being serenaded by 150 species of birds populating the Nature Preserve.
