I stayed here for 4 nights and loved every minute of it! The couple that owns the resort are fun and great hosts and the food was SO fresh and delicious. The view from every spot in the resort is beautiful. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable. I took 2 days of surf lessons and had so much fun! Bill...

I stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great time. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly from the moment they picked me up from the airport to the moment they dropped me off again. Bill took me surfing every day, most days twice, even though he had a pretty badly injured knee he didn't complain once...

My girlfriend and I enjoy traveling to out-of-the-way yet comfortable places, where there is a combination of things to do and time to relax — not to mention great food. SOMA is all these things and then some. Before arriving we read some of the other reviews here talking about how great Casey and Bill are, and that it's like...

My husband and I had an absolutely fabulous 7 day stay at Soma Surf Resort. Previous guests put it well in mentioning that you could shape your vacation here to your preferences - more active, restorative, etc. I did two days of yoga, four days of surfing as a beginner and my husband surfed all 7 days, who is a...

Soma felt like a home away from home -- if your home had an amazing chef, gorgeous infinity pool, and the options to surf, practice yoga, or even take a boxing lesson at any time! My friend and I stayed for six days and had a great time unplugging from our hectic work lives. The food was fresh, full of...

Nicaragua is the new Costa Rica, as in CR became a North Florida wasteland of expensive prices, crowded beaches and foodchain restaurants. Nicaragua is the place: Pristine empty beaches, clean sand, cheap local original food, friendly locals happy to interact, and an adventure at every corner. While enjoying that, stay in Style: Soma doesn't budge in design, luxury and sophistication....

This is the perfect place to become disconnected with everything else in order to truly put yourself first. It was beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, and fun. The food is THE BEST -- fresh, healthy, delicious and unique. The staff here are wonderful; friendly, polite, and kind. I would come back in a heartbeat -- in fact, I cried a little when...

We had a wonderful 3 day stay here over New Years and it was by far the nicest place we stayed in in Nicaragua. Food was great, surf lessons (super beginner) were fun, people were wonderful, AC, reliable hot water and a beautiful pool.

With a family of five (sons ages 18, 15, & 12), we are not able to travel internationally as often as we would like. That said, I research our destination and accommodations very carefully before making any final decisions. From the very first email (of many) to Casey with a long list of questions to the final hugs goodbye with...

Bill and Casey built, and manage this beautiful resort in the hills of popoyo. From start to finish they were helpful, eager and wonderful hosts. They have a fabulous local staff that goes to great lengths to ensure you are beyond happy. The food is all locally sourced and never ceased to amaze. Fresh fish is delivered daily from Nicaraguan...
