Marina Puesta Del Sol is a secluded resort surrounded by nature and peaceful setting. I imagine that a few years ago this place was the centerpiece for boat/yacht owners to gather for merriment. Today, the place has not been kept to its best. The staff is amazing! They will do whatever it takes to make the guests happy. The location is awesome. I recommend but would tone down the "luxury" expectations.
This hotel is located off the beaten track, wonderful views to the pacific ocean and the volcanoes, great rooms and peaceful beach. The restaurant can serve you any fresh fish dish you want and you can enjoy it just in front of the harbour with the sea breeze in your face.
This was the worth experience ever. I , went with friends and family, DO NOT ORDER FOOD HERE , especially the fish they sell. They have it listed, for $32.90usd. and state that is a 2 pound fish , yes, you will get 2 pound alright of bread crumbs. Also the service is TERRIBLE , not enough personnel to serve you, they use there security guard to serve you drinks do to the fact they dont have enough server. THINK TWICE BEFORE GOING THERE....
Nice place! The property sits on an inlet(?) from the ocean and they have a marina. They have a beach facility about 1km walk, or accessible via a shuttle. Beautiful beach that was virtually unpopulated. There are no other facilities in the area, so you are limited to on-property. Food was very good (really recommend the red snapper)! Service was good as well. We spent a few days there to unwind from the running around activities and tours. It was absolutely perfect place to unwind for a bit.
This hotel is seriously undermarketed. For most of our stay we were the only guests. The amenities here are excellent. The rooms are beautiful, with a wonderful view of the bay. Terrific design and construction. Each room has a sofa bed a few steps down from the bedroom area, so that there is a view from everywhere in the room. There is a large terrace outside each room. The service is excallent. Since the diningroom was closed we ate at the outdoor thatched roof bar area. It was charming. They drove us to a separate pool and bar, a half mile across the peninsula, on the ocean. The beach was empty as far as we could see. If you want a vacation to lie on the beach and be served, this is the place to go.
Beautiful place, peaceful surroundings, great service. Perfect place to get away and relax. Close to many different volcanoes, beaches, natural areas. Getting there is half the fun Granada, and Leon were full of history.
We arrived here on our sailboat, and we almost didn't stop -- but we are SO glad that we did. In all our sailing travels from Berkeley, California, to Costa Rica, in the last 1.5 years, this was our favorite stop! The marina services are excellent -- great wifi, friendly people, good food at the restaurant (if expensive relative to elsewhere, especially the alcohol), and it's quite calm and protected in the estuary -- and the rest of the services are amazing, including the TWO pools. (The pool at the towering oceanside palapa is perfect for yoga in the morning before surf!) This whole area of northern Nicaragua is, without a doubt, worth exploring. The people are exceptionally friendly, the landscape rolls along with green pastures and huge trees, and although there isn't much tourism infrastructure beyond what's been built to cater to the surfers, that's what makes it amazing: you share the road with cattle and people on horseback and bikes. It's worth noting that the owner of this property is Nicaraguan, and after some time in San Francisco came back home to build this property -- as well as a quality local school. We didn't get to check out the hotel, but we loved the marina and the surrounding area. We would go back in a heartbeat -- and will.…
Spacious, well kept rooms, with nice sized bathrooms. Great restaurant serving local fare, with service available all day. Plenty of activities to choose from including horse back riding, fishing, surfing, kayak/canoeing or just lounging poolside. Less than 3 hours from Managua, a secluded getaway for couples and families. We were there after the Easter Holiday (Semana Santa) and practically had the place to ourselves, since most of the Nicaraguan families and other Latin America tourists were back at home. Would recommend for those looking for a low key, relaxing stay.
The only real hotel in the area. Very comfortable with a beautiful view, but very remote. The hotel is very hard to find, because it is well off the main road and down a very long dusty dirt road (but understand it is much worse in the rainy season when all becomes mud). Strange place for such a nice hotel. Hotel was deserted with no other guest there when we were there, but the grounds and rooms were well kept. A bit pricey for the remote location and vacant / empty situation. Very poor and dirty poverty area surrounds the area for miles.
Very nice property,a bit remote and away from everything. The room spacious with huge bathrooms, two level bedrooms and balconies. I found very few guests: one couple that seem was their honeymoon and 6 people that were fisherman. The staff at the resort helpful and friendly, and the food was great as were the stinks.
