The hotel is pretty nice, rooms are nice and big bathroom. Little hot during the night one celling fan in the middle of the room but does not really hit the bed with fresh air. Maybe a extra fan will be perfect. The local staff was friendly and the food in the restaurant was very good, amazing breakfast! The beach...

Very cute and peaceful place but still with a nice travel vibe. Pool is lovely, yoga pagoda has a spectacular view. Rooms are nice with cute balconies with hammocks but the mozzies easily get in - there are nets but means you are confined to your bed or to completely covering up / wearing repellent which in a very hot...

My friend and I travelled to Nicaragua and stayed at Casa Maderas and we absolutely loved it!

Although we didn't stay at the Casa Maderas Ecolodge, we enjoyed many meals here. The Happy Hour was great (highly recommend the mojitos and wine spritzer with basil) and the pizza nights. Both were excellent. We had pasta dishes, hamburgers, salads and tacos here. It's a great restaurant overlooking the pool surrounded by hills with a gentle breeze. Can't ask...

Good pool. Nice rooms. Staff was super friendly! Shuffle to beach, but it's not far to walk it's just two steep hills up and down to get there. If you are lazy you end up eating at the hotel restaurant all the time, which is great but also gets slightly boring. There is nothing else very close. Made me sad...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
CASA MADERAS welcomes you in its authentic Nicaraguan country style accommodation. Casa Maderas is an affordable nature-friendly hotel located 9kms North of San Juan del Sur accessed by affordable daily shuttles. It is only a 10 min. Walk from a world-renowned surf break, Maderas Beach, making it a perfect place for surfers to experience great waves! Our hotel is ideal for solo travelers, couples, families or friends desiring to sit back and relax, away from the commotion of downtown San Juan del Sur. The songs of the bristling winds, singing birds, and howling monkeys will surround you. Our little piece of heaven offers you a wide range of services and activities such as surf lessons & rentals, yoga, zip-lining, sailing, fishing, horseback riding and sea-turtle expeditions. On site, you can enjoy affordable meals of international and local cuisine or refreshing fresh fruit smoothies at our Bar and Restaurant's terrace overlooking our large swimming pool. There is no kitchen available for guest use. Our restaurant is open for breakfast beginning at 7:30am and open through until 9:00pm. Breakfast is not complimentary. Chill in one of the many hammocks we have all over the property or lounge by the pool. Challenge your friends to a volleyball match in the pool. Come and enjoy the breathtaking view of the countryside at our splendid open air Yoga studio on the top of the hill. We also invite you to visit our Eco-Pavilion where you can find out about our nature-friendly initiatives. Our hotel consists of 24 rooms for 1 to 6 people. Each room is fitted with comfortable beds, new mattresses, mosquito nets, a bathroom, ceiling fan(s) and locker(s) (please bring your own padlock). ... more   less
