We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had a large family room (three double beds) and a terrace partly (through banana trees & other vegetation) overlooking Lake Nicaragua from which we could watch and listen to wildlife including the noisy but beautiful toucans with their unbelievable call (sounded like a drowning telephone), lizards and iguanas, and a small pig-like animal which we have since discovered is an agouti. We were the only guests there, which is sad for this tranquil hotel, and so it felt like our private haven for our two day stay. Plenty of walks around the island on pathways. We received the utmost kindness and courtesy from the staff and the food that emerged from their kitchen was unexpectedly adventurous. Special mention to ?Julio, who speaks good English, but all the staff were great. :) We felt it important to mention that we encountered some unexpected difficulties getting there because the regular ferry service which our research indicated was available to and from this island archipelago from the mainland is (or, at least, was not when we were there) any longer available. So if you are planning a visit, check check and check again (with the hotel direct is our recommendation, as there is little other information including online), and make sure you are travelling to/from the island on a Tuesday or Friday or you will be effectively marooned unless you pay for an expensive private ferry trip to/from the mainland. The hotel has no wi-fi access and power is generated onsite, so only comes on at around 4pm until around midnight. But when you are surrounded by all this, you may find that internet access is not top of your list. Say "hola" to parrot Martina if you go there, as she will certainly say it to you.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way through Nicaragua to San Carlos and the San Juan River. The islands are indescribably unique, perhaps a few more days would have solved that. We did get to visit a few of the other islands which the hotel sorted out at a very fair price....San Fernando, despite being smaller seemed to have more atmosphere but all said and done I'm glad we stayed where we did on Mancarron. We chose the hotel Mancarron because of the family rooms and great reviews and we weren't let down. Despite there being no tourists about at the moment the hotel operated very efficiently, the food was fantastic, the beer was ice cold and all in all it was good value for money. The rooms were very comfy but if I was to be critical they lacked useful windows and enough natural light for me. Getting to the island was fun as we chose to come from Colon Rivas on the south western side of the lake instead of from San Carlos and Alejandra organised this transfer brilliantly for us. I would definitely recommend this hotel but perhaps staying in one of the guest houses would be a slightly more authentic option but they don't all have a beautiful gardens and a private pier to chill out on. Finally from reading a banner written in spanish by the museum it would appear not everyone is happy with the popularity of this hotel and something political is going on over the ownership and the land its situated on but we didn't get to investigate this further.

We spent 2 nights here in Janusry on Isla Mancarron and really enjoyed our stay. The ferry from the mainland was not running so they sent a boat for us. As you climb the steps up from the water, you enter a beautiful garden space. The hotel offers very large rooms with a pleasant deck off the back side of the room. Our deck faced the water. We ate all our meals here and the food was some of the best we had in Nicaragua. The young manager, Julio, was very attentive and took excellent care of us. He also set up trips to other islands to see villages and indigenous artists. Our island had a trail out and around through a lovely village with artisans and hostels. The hotel was powered by a generator that ran from 5pm-12 midnight....but there was no hot water.....so shower quickly. We were able to purchase a good bottle of wine from the restaurant and enjoyed sitting in a nice lounge area down by the water. We met a lovely couple from Holland that was staying here....with made for interesting dinner conversation. We definitely recommend staying here.

This little island gem of a hotel is truly charming. From the staff meeting us at the dock to carry our bags, to coffee service early in the morning, through every meal, the service was warm, attentive and personal. While the rooms are simple, the meals are out of this world. The tilapia for lunch one day and the chicken for dinner another were perhaps the best I've ever had. As we'd scarf down our meals, we'd be awaiting dessert, which was always a treat. The Solentiname Islands are beautiful, and the Hotel Mancarron gives you a welcome equal to the warmth of the island residents.

This is a great place! And like others have said, the food is amazing! I eat well every time I visit Nicaragua but this really was the best food! And great, fast service too. The setting is amazing. The rooms were very clean. The staff was very accommodating: bringing us ice, glasses, and cola to the dock veranda for our happy hours and coffee to the central palapa terrace to feed our caffeine addiction. We had a delightful stay and I will be bringing more tour groups back in the future.
