“Our favorite spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

Accommodation is spacious, clean and quite, and a good breakfast is included. We almost skipped Ometepe and in the end, this became our favorite spot !! Very laid-back, enjoyable place. Highly recommended are the great guides - Javier (herpetologist) and his cousin are toppers : among all the tours we did in Nicaragua, those young boys spoke the best English we came across in the whole country. They are very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable - we were really amazed to have worked with them for a few days (San Ramon waterfall, kayak around Los Monos island, Charco Verde walk, ...). Thank you so much - you guys really made the difference!!!

Javier (Havy) was an excellent host, he speaks very good English and made our time on Ometepe very enjoyable. The cabins were basic but very clean and large. A farm of banana trees was next to ours so very quiet. Havy was very knowledgeable about the island and able to answer all our questions. He arranged a one day tour where we visited: Concepcion Valcano, the Petroglphs, swam in a natural mineral swimming pool at Ojo de Agua which was divine and walked out to a spit at Punta Jesus Maria where you feel you are walking on water at sunset - it was beautiful and the Guide (sorry can't remember his name) was excellent. Javier (Havy) would know as he recommended him. We only spent two nights but should have spent more time as you could rent a scooter and go from one end to the other - there are quite a few restaurants on the main road in from the ferry. Also shops and a few grocery stores. Try and take the 3-level ferry to get there and back as the one level one is a bit smelly.
Thanks for having us Havy, all the very best in 2014

Room Tip: I think most of them would be quiet - the birds are up early so get up with them and enjoy the warm...

We stayed in November for two nights in Hospedaje Soma. But evrything what Javier and Johan arranged for us was so good and it felt so nice we booked another two nigts at Soma. We got a lot information about activities on the island, they learned us making a good Rum and the hospitality was just amazing. We stayed in a bungalow with a lot of space. The breakfast was every morning fresh made by local woman. Very good! If anyone ask us how was Nicaragua, this place is the first we talk about! Keep on your good work. Good luck!

We stayed here a few nights and really enjoyed it. It's a short walk away from Moyogalpa so you can avoid the noise but still get the benefits of the town. Our room was clean and spacious. The private rooms come with a nice breakfast with a huge bowl of fruit which I loved. The owner is really helpful and set up a motorcycle rental for us. Good atmosphere too. Definitely worth it!

We stayed for four nights at Hospedaja Soma. The rooms are clean and well kept. The manager, Javier, is very helpfull. According his words: "when it's legal, I can arrange it!" And he really will. Lunches for on the way, taxis, whatever.
I very pleasant stay for a good price.
