Very nice beach to lay on, run on, and enjoy the waves. Once you are here it is a challenge to get to stores for supplies and there are only two restaurants in the hacienda. We had a truck and it made the visit a lot more doable. Most rentals are in 3 condo buildings that emphasize either Club and Colorado break, Golf, or Oceanfront and Panga break. We stayed at 2 and the actual condo will vary depending on what the owner wants to provide for their guest. Bothe of the places we stayed at had the very basics and no frills but very comfortable. The property management was so-so on responding to problems in the condos as they really don't own them and they just take a commission. I would certainly go back again. The waves are awesome to ride or watch.

I really enjoyed my time at the Iguana and it's location and easy access to so many great surf beaches is unmatched. There are condo options that are surrounded by the golf course and villa options which are smack dab on the beach. My only complaint was the lack of dining options

The condo had everything we needed. The refrigerator was not working, but they immediately sent a repairman and got it working great! The beach is beautiful. We felt safe and part of the family immediately! The roads are pretty good all the way there and well marked.

We stayed 4 nights in a two bedroom apartment in Villa Iguana. And the surroundings and the location was fantastic! Wow! It took only one step to reach the incredibly beautiful beach of Playa Colorado and good waves for surfing!
But unfortunately there area has only two restaurants and they are overcharge. And when we arrived to the apartment the shower dident work, which took hours to fix, and the balcony door could not be locked. We also would have appreciated more information in advance, like time for checkin / checkout, was there Wi-Fi (yes but extremely bad), would cleaning be included etc.

We just returned from our visit to Nica. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa that sits right on the beach. The views were BEYOND amazing and the hiking was awesome! We did a lot of walking, since we didn't rent a car. We're buying one of the villas, so I suspect we'll have to get a golf cart to use when we're there. The water was super clear and warm. I just can't get enough of that country. Pristine beaches...untouched...I hope it stays that way!

Room Tip: If you're planning on surfing, then stay at one of the villas right on the beach. You're RI...

The service was excellent, Luisa was always there to help us with our doubts. We spent with my couple two amazing days, in a big, comfortable, and complete house, that had an incredible view. We had the swiming pool and the beach just in front of us for an excellent price! Thank you!!

I spent a few days at the resort with my family, we enjoyed the views and beach! We went for surfs out front, Colorado beachie, fun waves. We took a couple trips out to Popoyo and great surs there too. The food at Don Eloys is fine. I would also recommend stopping at Maxi Pali in Rivas to pick up provision and cooking your own food in their kitchen. The pool area is nice and is a great place for the ppl to hang out that do not surf. The place is located far from anything else, it is isolated so do be prepared to only see surfers and golfers. Overall great times and plenty of fun waves through out the region.
