I was visiting Kentucky from Iowa and my friend suggested Spotz Gelato. I’m not a huge fan of ice cream, or custard, so I didn’t think I’d rave about gelato but I LOVED it! I got the Bourbon Cherry Cheesecake and it was the perfect...creamy blend of sweet and a tinge sour. The owner was so nice and she went out of her way to make my friends birthday special and make us travelers feel welcome. The decorations also make it noticeable and unique. I highly recommend this place for an afternoon treat or for a catering event.More

This hit the spot a bit more pricey than I expected. But nice to have for a treat every once in a while

Newly opened gelato place in Las Penitas, a little bit beyond Hotel Suyapa. Owned by an American couple from Kentucky, all the gelato is made on site. There was a good variety of ices on hand, and the prices were reasonable. Obviously this place caters...to a tourist crowd, as buying a gelato is still a luxury for many Nica's. But, it is providing employment for a few local Nicas, and that is a good thing. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and the gelato just the thing after a hot day at the beach.More

Beth and Phil make the most delicious gelato! A trip to the beach for me means coffee flavor gelato ( or grapefruit sorbet) for sure. This store is so cute and clean and I really like how friendly the staff are. I also appreciate the...thought that goes into creating exciting and new flavors. ( hello rum raisin!) Spotz is an amazing addition to a fabulous beach town. I can't wait to go back!!More

You don't need these reviews to find this colorful, tasty treat, you'd find it any way! Really wonderful flavors of ice cream, large portions, at a colorful, cheerful shop. The owners regularly present new flavors- such as cherry lemon- and of course, the town sweethearts...of chocolate and rum raisin are always a delight (only once did I arrive and the chocolate was sold out, as sad as that was.)More

I would like to make two comments about this place: Firstly, the service and staff (owners) are AMAZING! I had a surfing accident and needed medical attention. Unfortunately, no taxi’s were around to drive me to the pharmacy. As I had a lot of pain,...I just went into their store and asked them for a lift...The owners did not hesitate one second and drove me with their privat car to the nearby pharmacy. I cant thank them enough!!! Secondly, the day after we went and got icecream and it was simply deliciousMore

Delicious fresh gelato and sorbet made at their store. We have tried many of the flavors and have a difficult time picking a favorite. They have sorbets with fresh local fruit that are delicious and their gelato is smooth and very rich. Only problem (...not really a problem) ...we have a home very close and we are making a habit of stopping by in the heat of the afternoon or early in the evening. So glad they chose Las Penitas as their location.More

Great place for dessert with a selection of home made ice cream. They even had two dairy free options. All rich in flavor and refreshing in the heat of the day. A local luxury as a cup costs almost as much as an entire meal...on the beach, but definitely worth it!More

Las Penitas has homemade gelato! Stopped in today with my kids after hearing of this new place on the beach. They have a clean, super inviting setup on the main road. There were several flavors available and i tried nearly all of them. The cinnamon...goat cheese was delicious as was the chocolate and banana pudding my son got. They had two sorbets available too. The owner came out and was kind and engaging. Spotz is a great addition to the beach.More
