Short version: wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Long version: read on This is the third time in two years so it goes without saying we love this place. This is a large resort with just 35 or so rooms so even at full occupancy there was so much space everywhere. Ultimate place to relax. Mario greeted us with a warm smile like...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW

I literally didn't want to post a review because this place was so amazing that I don't want anyone else to go. Villas outstanding. Service outstanding. Spa one of the best I have ever experienced and I travel to the ends of the earth for a good spa. Chef Cheminot killed it, every night. I think I need to stop...

Mukul is one-of-a-kind in Nicaragua and up there with the most premium resorts in the world. We stayed for 4 nights in an ocean bohio and there really was nothing to fault. The privacy, intimacy and views are absolutely supreme (bohios come with a large veranda and dip in pool - perfect for morning coffee and watching the sunset). The...

The landscape, the beach and the setting of the hotel is perfect. We stayed at a villa and had plenty of space and an amazing view. We had a very good surf instructor and at high tide there are great waves, even if you stay far from the rocks. The food is ok, but not great. Most disturbing is the...

Amazing place, friendliest and most helpful staff, gorgeous spa, delicious and inventive food. I went here for 10 days w my bf in Dec 15 and had the most incredible time. Very remote but never was bored and could have stayed for a month. The spa is one of the best I've been to - gorgeous on the top of...

Mukul is a fantastic 5 star resort in Nicaragua. It is very expensive but well worth the money. Everything was fabulous. Great food, surfing, pools and scenery. I only wish we had stayed more days. We stayed at several resorts and houses on this trip just to see a little of everything; Mukul was by far our favorite.

As the other reviewers point out, Mukul is a beautiful resort. It is still very small (around 30 rooms, I believe), when they were at full capacity some days, the resort still felt empty. Unlike many other top resorts, there was absolutely no issue with finding a spot at the pool or beach and you never felt like you needed...

We just finished a week long vacation at Mukul with my wife and 4 kids (7, 9, 11, 12), and not one of our family members were ready to leave. We have traveled all over the world and this ranks as one of the top luxury experiences we have ever had. Getting to Mukul requires you to go through either...

This was one of our favorite vacations that we just got back from. The location: on a private mile long beach, anchored between mountains/cliffs. The bohios are fantastic as high as 300 ft above the beach on a cliff. Splurge for a premium onceanview bohio, as they provide the best view IMO (better than the ocean front villas). We stayed...

Mukul – “mukul” is the Mayan word for “secret” – features 37 spacious accommodations, each with an ocean view, pool and private staff. Other resort amenities include Spa Mukul, with six private spa-treatment casitas; a beach club featuring dining and lounge areas and a swimming pool; and the 18-hole Guacalito Golf Course. Guests enjoy access to the property’s four miles of white-sand beach and rugged coastline, and 12 kilometers of nature trails on which they can hike or bike to observe the four species of monkeys and other wildlife that reside in the lush coastal forest. Guests can also explore Nicaragua through customized experiences that introduce them to the nature, culture and people of this up-and-coming tourism destination, known as the “land of lakes and volcanoes.” ... more   less
