On recommendations from many friends we went with our two children to Los Cardones to spend a day on the beach. We used only restaurant so I cannot comment on the accommodation.
The restaurant and surroundings are very nice, clean and well kept. The beach is beautiful. The only downside of our stay was the service in the restaurant. Although there were almost no people in the restaurant, we had to wait 25 minutes to get drinks which we had ordered, not speaking about the food....and moreover the servant messed up our order and forgot about the meal for our son.
We will probably not come back as we know better beaches but the place can be pleasant for those who are afraid to stay on public beaches in Nicaragua.
