Like a lot of the other reviews on here, our experience of Punta Teonoste was disappointingly hit and miss. The beach is stunning, a really beautiful and peaceful setting. The staff are very sweet. The steaks are delicious. HOWEVER When we arrived, we were shown to a villa that was full of wasps buzzing around. We complained and they offered...

Dear Traveler, We feel sorry we did not match your 4 star resort expectation. As you know, our resort is located in the middle of the wild nature, isolated from large populations. The nearest village, El Astillero, with only over 1,000 inhabitants is about 6 miles from the resort. We believe the beauty of our location is to be integrated...

6 of my Friends and I spent a few days here over new years eve. The hotel itself is ok. The private beach is nice. The food is not the best. But the resort has armed guards for a reason. There is a small village just outside the hotel that is extremely poor and desperate. While traveling to the resort...

Dear Traveller, Thanks a lot for your comments. We apologize once again for the transportation inconvenience.

First, what's good about this place: it's set on a gorgeous, fine sand beach that is totally private. The waves are perfect for body surfing and boogie boarding. There doesn't seem to be an undertow to worry about. They have a turtle protection program, so we got to see baby Olive Ridleys being released into the ocean. The food is...

[--] Dear Traveler, Thank you for taking your time to write a report about our resort. As you could check during your trip to Nicaragua, our country is still a destination off the beaten path.

$100 a night for each person . . . the beach is gorgeous and the open air lobby is neat. Beyond that, it's not worth $40 each. Rooms might have been nice in the 1980s, but no updates since them. Bugs and hornets galore - not just because it's a tropical environment but because the rooms aren't used very frequently....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Punta Teonoste. We created a place in which to reconnect with the pure energy of the elements, in a setting of incredible natural beauty. It's our desire to make you indulge into the luxury of an unspoilt surrounding, to see you enjoy our stylish yet cozy atmosphere, the delicious food and the various activities. At the end of your stay we want you to leave with a relaxed smile on your face and a heart full of unforgettable moments. Nicaragua is a year-around destination. All seasons are great for diving and surfing or exploring land and culture. While the months from December to May are completely dry, the months from June to November can produce the typical tropical rain showers which makes the surroundings lush and green. A setting of rock formations, small bushes and trees as well as the ocean promote the significant life forces of nature's energy and welcome you to enjoy your stay with all senses. Punta Teonoste is intimate and relaxed, offering an emotionally intelligent approach to service that begins with empathy. The responsible and caring attitude of Punta Teonoste is the key to an unobtrusive yet attentive service that makes guests feel right at home. ... more   less
