This place is truly beautiful. They have a great location just on a hill, so you can see the ocean from their terrace. The owners and everyone that works there are really nice and they are like a little family, creating a sense of home. They serve Canadian style breakfast and all the food is really great, serving up meals you didn't think were still possible in Nicaragua. They have a gorgeous pool and the rooms are cheap and really nice. They also have really good Wi-Fi and a TV at the bar for watching the news or futbol games or hockey games! Really a good spot to check out in Nicaragua.
