I could not say more about how wonderful and hospitable everyone is at La Jolla. We had an amazingly comfortable stay, they were very accommodating of last minute guests on two occasions during the week. Tim took my husband and I surfing and Ditmara and Bob always had a great suggestion of what to do and where to go. The...

We absolutely love this place! The hotel is well equipped with everything for all of your needs and the staff will make sure you are as comfortable as can be. I highly recommend it :) We really enjoyed the view and the pool. And the food is great.

We came on a Safari Surf tour and stayed at La Jolla for the whole week while we were in Nicaragua. What an outstanding property! The location, the access to fantastic surfing, the rooms, the pool, the restaurant and bar exceeded all our expectations. However, the best part of all was the people at La Jolla. Our many thanks to...

My buddy and I flew into (ECI) Emerald Coast International Airport - only a few miles away from La Holla. Bob sent us a driver to pick us up and we checked in 35 minutes after having landed in Nicaragua! The rooms are air-conditioned and come with a kitchenette - not that you'll need it as the food at La...

I was travelling with my daughter through the Rivas Department in Nicaragua and found this hotel. It is a villa that has all the comfort and attention in place. The villa is owned by an American. The villa is very private and safe. I have no complains except there are no phones in the rooms. The villa has beautiful views....

I have been a constant surf traveler to Costa Rica for many years and was reluctant to spread my wings toward Nicaragua. Big mistake! Nica is safe , beautiful, friendly and the people are genuinely glad to see you. The fun flight from Liberia CR to the new Emerald Coast Airport took only 30 minutes and we were in and...

This is the perfect hotel for those who want to get away from everything and everyone. It's a little out of the way, but the staff help with transport for those without cars. You really feel like you are away from the outside world, and even the town is small and had very little tourists. Like surfing? The hotel offer...
