Bob and I spent three very relaxing and congenial days with Esther at her lovely Villa Riviera. She is a terrific host who made us feel very much at home. We slept well in the comfortable bed and spent the hot days relaxing in the shade of the terrace. It was great to be able to use the well equipped kitchen after being on the road for months. Great, healthy breakfast too with lots of fresh fruit and homemade yoghurt.
The best part though was Esther herself. She is so friendly and welcoming, it was like visiting an old friend.

My fiance and I stayed at Ester's at the end of March before driving to Guatemala. She greeted us in the driveway and we proceded to have a lovely conversation on her newly renovated side porch. The rooms were comfortable and cool with the best mattress we had slept on in weeks. Ester also helped recommend restaurants and seemed to know a lot about the local culture. Her breakfast was also FANTASTIC (yogurt, te, coffee, granola, toast, home made pineapple jam... YUM YUM YUM!) I could not recommend staying with her more! (Sorry, for my review below there is no swimming pool)

It´s been said before, but I´ll repeat that arriving at Esther´s B and B feels just like arriving home. Our first arrival was after a 13 hour bus ride, and we were so delighted to be welcomed like long lost friends. We stayed two more times during our trip to Nicaragua, and now feel that Esther is a friend. The beds are comfortable, the breakfasts excellent, the outside space so nice for relaxing. Esther twice gave us a lift to the bus station and recommended places to eat. All in all I can´t imagine a better place to stay in Esteli.

The location is great. Ester's home is in a very quite residential area that is not too far from the city center. Ester's service was great. We have stayed in several homes and a hotel in Esteli. The stay at Ester's was the best one. The value far exceeds the price.

My son summed it all up when after 3 months of travelling he walked in and pointed to the home sign on the wall. It really is home from home. Esther is so friendly and welcoming. She made our stay so comfortable. My children were made to feel welcome too. Comfortable, great breakfast on the patio, would thoroughly recommend. Thanks Esther.

Room Tip: No fitness room obviously but couldn't remove green blobs!
