For an all inclusive, this place seems just average. The beach was nice but rough. The massage was amazing. There are no towels available for people coming in for day use only - you can't even rent/buy one. The buffet was ok - again the only place available to eat free for day use folks.

Looking for a way to spend the day after a meeting was canceled . A Nica friend mentioned this place. At a little over an hour drive it is not too close to Managua. The hotel allows people to do day passes but it is quite steep at 45$ a person . It took about 45 minutes to check in...... More

I stay in hotels about 150 nights a year. I rarely ever leave reviews here on TripAdvisor unless one of two things happens: A) I am amazed and blown away by the excellent service / experience or B) the experience was so horrible that I feel other people need to be warned. Staying at the Barcelo Montelimar Beach "resort" falls... More

This past June was the fourth time I visit Nicaragua and for the first time visited Montelimar. Because of the good rate, I stayed the night to celebrate father's day with my father in that location.

Don't raise your expectations, this hotel doesn't meet the standars of the Barceló franchise. With crowded areas and poor customer service, the vacation experience this hotel provides is far from bring a perfect beach getaway.

This is a all inclusive hotel, surrounded by nature and with a lovely beach.The bungalows are very nice, but must watch out of mosquitoes and ants. I think they should improve the signage, as if you stay in the bungalows you might get lost looking for the restaurant or swimming pool.
