My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in Casa Robleto, a colonial paradise located in the center of Masaya in the first week of January 2013. Our stay was
simply amazing! The house is very beautiful and very homely. The room we stayed is equally beautiful and very clean. The bed is very comfy, The bathroom is huge with great hot shower with loads of fluffy bath, hand, and facial towels.
Of course, the sumptuous breakfast is served in the formal dining area with nice china and silverware. We were attended by Senora Francesca
and Marbella - like having your breakfast served by your grandma. It was wonderful. We felt like we didn't want to step out of the house
to explore Masaya.Although the casa is in the center of Masaya, the place is very quiet - we slept well.
The host Don Frank is very accomodating and helpful in arranging our tours and transportation. He organized a night tour to Masaya
Volcano for us with the National Park (inexpensive and guides were excellent compare to the more expensive tours operated by commercial
agencies). We ended up hiring his trusted taxi driver, Sr Loyola, to drive us around Masaya and visit the surrounding Puebla Blancas, Catarina view point
and other less touristy veiwpoints, Lake Apoyo, and Masaya Volcano, back to Granada and transfer from Granada to the
airport in Managua. Don Frank also arranged a horsedrawn carriage tour of Masaya for us.
It may sound a lot for $50/night for the two us but it was WORTH (all upper case) every penny of it plus we saved a lot of money on tours arranged
by Don Frank compare to
tours ran by commercial agencies. We covered almost everything in Masaya in two days at a very relaxing but exciting phase. Casa Robleto is a short walk
to the Masaya's main square and we felt safe walking around the area at night. To make a long story short, we highly recommend Casa Robleto.
