Great place with a wonderful view...the staff is very helpful and the food is amazing. The bilingual school is a great volunteer option if you want to extend your stay. Darwing at the front desk is a great help. You must try the brown bread veggie burger... Well worth the price!

Best location to climb the small valcanoe. Not a party hostel, don't even sell liquor at the place. Look badly upon drinking. Felt like Alvaro wanted to to everything he could to make us stay multiple days. Like saying dont hike the volcanoe on day one. Take time to acclimate. The Swimming platform here is awesome and fresh water feels so good. Stay a night to climb the mountain then move on.

Hacienda Merida is absolutely the best place to stay on Ometepe if you truly care about this magnificent island and want to enjoy nature in an ecological place that truly practices sustainable tourism. Location, staff, food, kayaks, tour guides, wi-fi, etc. are all wonderful. Be sure to speak with the on-site owner, Alvaro Molina, and see/learn what can REALLY be done with, for and by true community involvement!
We are already looking forward to our next trip... thank you, Alvaro, we will return!

Although Merida is difficult to get to (make sure you arrange your transport to the town ahead of time), it was worth it to stay at this little hotel. The service and access to all of the island's activities were great, but the room was pretty dark and the mosquito nets needed updating since they weren't able to cover the beds. We went kayaking to Monkey Island, swam and enjoyed the hand made coconut ice cream. Great stay!

Room Tip: Go for the upstairs, lakefront rooms.

I spent 4 days on Ometepe in the Hacienda in november. the place is beautiful, all nature around, just close to the lake, with a nice open area with the reception, table for lunch and hamac to relax. enjoy the somptuous sunset ! the food is a little expensive but very good (there was no buffet when we were there). WIFI is working very well. We had a dorm only for 2 persons with bathroom, you can rent bikes or go with kayak and a guide (10 usd per person). all the employees were very kind, as well the guides and a speak english, but is even better if you can speak spanish. this is a very good place for relax, doing some sport ( hiking and biking). and good place for backpacker with a little bit of comfort
