Hotel de Montañas Selva Negra has an outstanding coffee which we had with their German Chocolate cake! Enjoy talking to the owner and a peaceful afternoon by the little pond surrounded by the nature sounds and beauty! Truly recommend it!

We wanted a place to chill and hike , this was great. It's very green in the mountains compared to the dry land you pass on the way up. The weekends are busy and sometimes there are weddings, so make sure to check. You might like the week days better not so many people. We arrived Sunday afternoon, lots of... More

A visit to Selva Negra is a great way to see one of Nicaragua's cloud forests. The resort is in the mountains above the city of Matagalpa, so be advised when you check the weather that it will be about 10 degrees Fahrenheit colder than Matagalpa (we weren't prepared for this). The restaurant serves fresh, good food, and despite having... More

I can recommend La Selva Negra Eco-Lodge and Coffee Estate without reserve. For the sake of complete transparency, we did have an incident with other guests on the property who were interested in seeing the 100% eco cabin and our privacy was invaded by folks wanting to peek in the cabin on at least 4 separate occasions. Not ideal on... More

This lovely hideaway offers a welcome contrast to the drier lowlands. The guides spoke good English and were very knowledge able. The food was healthy and organic but the waiters need to improve their English-language speaking. We will go again if we are back in in Nicaragua.

Selva Negra is a classical of tourism in Nicaragua, no idea when it was building but I visit there first time around 30 years ago. Than I am going alone, with my family or with entomologist friends nearly every year. The sensation is always wonderfull, stay in a chalet near of the forest, wake up, a fast shower and jump...

It was hard to not be very impressed with this resort. It's true (some of the other reviews mention this), the rooms are spartan, and clean. Bit it's not the rooms you come for. It was our connection with the local environment and the staff that made this visit memorable. The hikes are good especially the nature, and coffee one.... More
