I normally don't write reviews, however, I decided to take my time to write a about Morgan's Rock, it's well earned. From the moment we set foot on the property we sensed the homy feeling in the air, the way the staff received us was just wonderful, loving people with authentic smiles always willing to make you as happy as...

I visited Morgan's Rock in May during a 5-day trip to Nicaragua. It was simple to get there by pre-arranged taxi from the Managua airport (took about 2 hours). I arrived late at night, and was immediately impressed by the ambience of the reception area and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I loved the room--a private bungalow with... More

Located quite some distance from SJDS, around 30 mins drive on a dirt track which makes it very peaceful and secluded. The resort is quite stunning. We stayed in a forest view room with plunge pool. Very comfortable and secluded with a small terrace. Only two comments on the room to improve it: given the open forest design, mosquito nets... More

I'm not going to rehash every feature but instead try to point out some important things about the resort that I encountered and didn't see much about in other reviews. First, the positive: The food was very good and artistically presented. Don't miss the bell pepper gazpacho. The staff was very nice and helpful. The tours were pretty good. They... More

EnlightenedAmerican, We celebrate you enjoyed our estuary and our menu with fresh dishes. The monkey quest is one of the favorite experiences of our guests! We very much regret what happened, as we said on the day of your visit there are places where you can smoke. When you asked for it we immediately asked them to stop doing it.... More

From the moment we booked the stay to the time we left, Morgan's Rock staff treated my wife and I like royalty. The resort is a quaint, private resort with a lot to do on the facility as well as trips booked from the resort to pretty much anywhere you want to go. The excursions are managed in house, so...

The journey to Morgan's Rock turned out to be an experience in itself but when we arrived, it was well worth the journey and the wait! The eco lodge is stunning - the bungalows, the beach, the pool, the views, the privacy, the monkeys, the suspension bridge, the food etc were all incredible but it was really the staff and... More

Enjoyed a lovely few days at Morgan's Rock Lodge near San Juan del Sur. It offers world-class ecolodges with a private beach and beautiful scenery. The Lodge sits on a nature preserve so morning walks or tours with the excellent guides at the hotel will reveal an incredibly diverse variety of local flora and fauna. The Lodge itself offers plenty... More

My kids and I spent a week in Morgan's Rock, in our own cabin with views of the ocean. We saw sloths aplenty, monkeys daily, and enjoyed the pool and beach.

First, it was quite easy to find Morgan's Rock. They have done a nice job of making the signage fool-proof. We were welcomed with a signature Macua, and chose to have them add the delicious Nicaraguan rum to the drink- of course! We had an easy breezy check in experience, and Harvey, gave us a fantastic, and informative tour of... More
