First the negatives. There are no meals after 6 30pm, there's no passing taxis so you have to phone for one, or walk. There's no view to speak of from the bedrooms. Martha was not usually visible and Ellery gives the impression he'd sooner be doing something else. Because of these factors, we had a good look at alternatives, but came to the conclusion Martha's was still the best option because:
The beach is the best on the island for those who aren't strong swimmers. My wife swam in the sea for the first time for years. If you want to snorkel, go to Dorsey's, Sally Peaches.
The food was excellent. The price was good, and portions so large we shared between the 2 of us. The dining area by the beach is very nice, and peaceful.
Its the end of the road/track so quiet. It also next to a place for the military so no security issues, and no need for wire netting between Martha's and the beach.
WiFi quite adequate but you only get a good signal on the lower balcony. Picnic Center, 5 minutes walk, has good wifi.
The balcony is nice, good views. The garden area across the bridge and little lagoon, is attractive.
Incidentally, for eating out, we found Casa Canada very good. Also, golf cart rental is quite near -$50 for 24hrs. We rented one from noon to noon and its a good way to explore the whole island.
We stopped 5 nights at Martha's and this was the best part of our 3 week trip to Nicaragua.
