We just returned from a (too short) three-night stay at the BVSC. We have traveled all over the world and this was one of our favorite experiences. Thanks so much to our amazing hosts Marielle, Marc, Flora, and Bart! The property is well designed and outfitted with just the right amount of taste and quality while not sacrificing the off-the-grid, no-wifi, no phone and TV experience that we were looking for. Our bags did not arrive in Nicaragua until 36 hours after we did, and the hosts did such an amazing job of helping us with everything we needed until they arrived. We loved the yoga in the morning and the surf lessons as well. I would say that the experience was made better because the other guests at the hotel (there were only 10-12 total guests) were easy going and interesting. Because of the intimate setting (shared dinner and breakfast tables) I suppose a grumpy or obnoxious group could spoil the mood, but I don't think that sort of traveler would want to be here anyway. We can't wait to return!
