Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Under new ownership since April 2016, the new owners of Hospedaje Soma continue to provide the best possible experience for all of our guests. Located just on the edge of Moyogalpa, a short walk from the ferry, we are far enough from town to feel away from it all but close enough for guests to access the amenities the small town has to offer. Our accommodations—from private cabins (perfect for families or groups), to private rooms, to dorm beds (for the budget backpacker)—are spread out throughout our spacious garden property. Our large common area is perfect for hanging out in the evenings, and our swimming pool and hammock areas are wonderful places to relax after a day of exploring all Ometepe has to offer. Breakfast is free for all our guests and we operate an honor bar with drinks and snacks available 24/7. We also offer complimentary customized maps, travel advice and booking services for all your tour and transport needs during your stay on Ometepe.

We are glad to be back, such a great spot we had cabin number one we did not lack anything in the room. The AC was great and the bed super comfortable. A must-try is the bangers and mash with a nice bottle of Chilean wine.

Loved staying at Soma. The owners gave tons of info about the island so we had to do no research on our own- only relax! Use their guide for Volcan Concepcion, Will— he was incredible! I’d also suggest renting motorbikes (if you have a license) from whomever they recommend,

We were quite confused as to which area to stay in on Isla Ometepe, but we were glad when we found Hospedaje Soma with swimming pool, private rooms and dorms with only a few minutes walk into Moyogalpa. The room was clean and comfortable, we had a fan which kept us cool. Outside

Is the pool open??
I have been on February 13th pool is not open please tell me it is!!!
How far are you from the beach? or horse back riding? or kayak rental?
This hotel is on the road leaving town so it is not really near anything. But, at the same time, the town in not very large so you are also within walking distance of everything.

I want to see your room prices and pictures of the rooms and availability 9-1 to 9-10 or longer.
"Dorm is perfect (levels beyond others), but the private is well worth it for a night or two if you want to catch up on sleep."
"That are all god with different amenities, so choose with what you need."
"Rooms for 4 are as nice as cabinas, but cheaper."
"The staff are so knowledgeable, explain your situation and they will suggest the best room for you"
"Dorm was great, but the bathroom is about 100ft away. All other rooms come with their own bathroom."
