We stayed here during our recent visit to the Somoto Canyon. We had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly. Excellent value for our money! :)

Friendly staff, nice swimming pool, free wifi; yet $90 a night for a triple bedroom, not including breakfast, is well over-priced. By comparison, in Managua, we payed $80 a night and got a much more comfortable room and breakfast was included.

We stayed three nights at La Frontera and enjoyed every minute. It's address is 'Contiguous to the Shell Ramos,' but this is a bit misleading as the gas station does not apppear to be a Shell station (at least, there were no Shell logos visible). It's at the northern edge of Ocotal, on the east side of the Panamerican Higthway, at a traffic light. Ocotal is a small town so althought the hotel is on the edge of town, it's still an easy walk to Central Park and the shops and street markets.

All the office staff and waiters were very pleasant and courteous and the food was good (especially a fish dish that I ordered the first night, which came sizzling on the platter!). Breakfast was extra (the only place we stayed where this was the case) and there was no shampoo or conditioner (again, a little unusual), but these are very minor criticisms, far outweighrd by our overall experience.

Views from our porch were spectacular and I enjoyed watching the comings and goings on the dirt road below. A little girl looked up and gave me the widest smile I've seen in my life! The pool was large compared to any other budget-priced hotel I've stayed at, and it was cleaned daily.

I stayed at Hotel Frontera for several days. My room was spacious, cleaned daily, great hot water shower, and fast uninterrupted WiFi. The office staff was very supportive and helpful. They arranged a coffee plantation tour and were very helpful with directions around the pretty little town of Ocotal. The kitchen staff were very understanding about my vegan diet and went to great lengths to prepare special dishes, which were excellent. The semi-enclosed court yard, with moderate size pool, was very relaxing and the pool refreshing on some really warm days. If traveling with auto, the hotel has enclosed parking and 24 hour security. I can't say enough good things about this place.
