Our stay at Orquidea was beyond perfection. Located in a pristine stretch of natural beauty, perched on the hillside just above the great expanse of the pacific coast sits Orquidea del Sur. A more beautiful sunset cannot be found - every sunset was worthy of a standing ovation . The staff treated us like VIP royalty - we felt pampered... More

This paradise deserves its number 1 status! It's exceptional in every way! We rented out the entire property for my husband's 40th birthday and could not be more pleased!

My family of 4 (children ages 8 and 11) just returned back to Virginia after an amazing stay at the Orchidea del Sur over our children's Easter Break. It just so happens that we missed the crowds of Holy Week in the area, and were the only guests apart from one day at the Orchidea when there was another couple... More

I am so happy we were one of the fortunate families that found Orquidea! This is a beautiful and intimate hotel. The staff is incredible. They treat you like a member of the family.

The property at the Orquidea is absolutely stunning. To get that level of accommodation in the rural and pristine area is amazing. My group came in from all over the U.S..... Many of them were world travelers and all thought it was one of the most unique properties they have ever stayed....

Our family of 5 stayed here over Christmas, and there could not have been one thing that would have made it a better stay. The place is well-staffed by incredibly responsive and customer-service oriented employees. They bend over backwards for you in a very genuine way, and there is always someone nearby if you need anything. We feel like we... More

I was lucky to spend two nights at Orquidea del Sur. It is remote, but unexpectedly and unbelievable beautiful. I have never felt so pampered. The food was good, the views spectacular, the pool warm, the service impeccable, and the location just perfect. If you decide to go there, spend a little time talking with the owner. She will tell...

It was a vacation that we will always remember, and we will be so happy to return. Most mornings, a pair of howler monkeys entertained us during while we drank the fabulous coffee that waited us...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hola and welcome to Orquidea del Sur, your private villa south of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Overlooking the renowned surf break at Playa Yankee, Orquidea del Sur commands a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean that is every bit as breathtaking as you would hope. We promise. With over 8000 square feet of living space, spectacular gardens, and two award winning swimming pools, the villa has everything you expect from a luxury vacation rental. The manicured gardens are filled with flowers, visited by all sorts of tropical birds including parakeets and toucans, and even monkeys stop by. Prepare your meals under cathedral ceilings in the fully appointed gourmet kitchen and enjoy them in one of several dining areas throughout the property. One of our favourite spots is on the patio overlooking the pool at sunset. After the sun goes down, you can retire to the house for a game of pool or simply relax with one of the books from the library. Each of the three bedrooms has a spectacular ocean view and large ensuite bathroom. With its own living area and balcony, you may never want to leave the 1000 square foot master bedroom or its large soaker bathtub. Should you require extra space, there are also 4 apartments available at a small additional cost. Sorry, the apartments can only be rented in conjunction with the main house and are not available for separate rental. Whatever you decide to do with your time here, you'll be doing it in a truly one of a kind setting. Orquidea del Sur has been a labour of love for us and we look forward to sharing it with you, our guests. Enjoy. Robert and Joanne - Owners ... more   less
