Genuinely helpful and friendly owners, low price, reasonably comfortable room, good internet, convenient location for the port and wonderful breakfast make this a good choice for Ometepe.
However the rooms are on a busy street that leads to the port. The owners offer ear plugs (a bowl of them in each room), but even with these it was too noisy for me (after 10 beers!).
I had an incident that ruined my stay and highlighted a real concern. I was woken by the owner at 6am. My room was completely flooded, ankle deep water. All my clothes and bags were drenched, books were ruined. Fortunately my electronic gear and camera were on a table. A pipe burst. Ankle deep, I realised wading through the water that live electrical cords and switches were submerged!
A burst piple was not the owner's fault. They were apologetic and offered top dry my stuff, but not to compensate me.
