Hotel Casino and Patrice the owner made our two night stay in Casares wonderful. When our flight got delayed and we didn't arrive in Managua until late, Patrice had a driver waiting for us at the airport ($40 US) and ice cold beers waiting for us when we arrived at the hotel. He offered to give us rides to the more secluded beaches up the coast. He arranged safe transportation for us to visit a festival in Diriamba. ($12 US each way) All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast and lunch on the second floor deck overlooking the ocean watching the fisherman bringing in their daily catch. All the meals were delicious. The rooms that face the ocean have doors that open directly to the second floor deck where the breeze from the ocean blows right in your room. If we return to Nicaragua, we would definitely return to Hotel Casino and spend more time there. It was very safe and a great value.
