My husband and I and our friends stayed at Ocotal from Sunday, March 29 - Wednesday, April 1, 2015. We had two rooms in a bungalow type building with our own private small outdoor pool. The room and bathroom were big, complete with walk in closet. We had a lovely view of the ocean. We were not far from the... More

Stayed here with friends. The views are spectacular, which is pretty much all I can say about it to be honest. Upon arrival, staff were very helpful and accommodated our needs with a room, without a booking. I must admit, the cost was cheaper than online too.... The rooms - standard, 2 queen beds, 70's dresser and Chinese flat panel.TV.... More

This hotel needs attention. It needs general updating paint better bedding. It is in a great location and a beautiful area. The people running it are very nice. Pricing is good for this area. We were in a EF tour with a group of high school students so it was great for our visit.

We stayed in the hotel for three nights. The location is incredible, but nothing is as great as the view. The sun sets right off the back of the hotel, providing easily one of the best views we've seen. The service was great. Maids changed towels and made beds every day. Additionally, the restaurant staff was extremely accommodating and nice.... More

This is a beautiful hotel right on the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is up on a cliff, but the view is worth it. The sunsets are breathtaking. The rooms are very nice and cool, with little private porches, and the infinity pool is really nice. There is a nice patio for dining, so relaxing with the ocean breezes. The staff... More

Because of the reviews I only booked a one day there, waiting for another unit to become available, I should have just stayed there and saved the money plus had a grand room view and nice, almost private pool, Breakfast was great, I had a car as one does for most of this coast, outside the four season or ubiquitous...

We booked to stay 2 nights, and stayed for 5! The main reason for this was the stunning view from our Sunset Villas accommodation, an uninterrupted view over the blue Pacific. We spent hours just sitting looking! Accompanied by our regular iguanas, and even, one evening, racoons. A few yards away there was a small swimming pool which was used... More

Just stayed here for one night, it was a great location. Beautiful beach and views. The restaurant up the beach (Father Rooster) was incredible, get the piña colada. Inside our bungalow was clean and comfortable, we had the one closest to the beach which I though would have a lot of people looking in, in fact we just had great... More

i booked this resort thinking it was similar to the photos. It wasn't. It had a dirty bathroom and hard beds in a small room. The entire place doesn't look clean and when I went to the bar I saw bugs on the counter top. I'm here now questioning whether I should eat here or not. This place is horrendous!!!!... More

This is the worst hotel ever! It is old and falling apart. The photos are not real. I had $50 stolen out of my room and the manager wasn't even there to help. She only works from 8am - 4pm, so if you have any issues you are out of luck. It is worse than a motel. There is no... More
