The romantic vision of two brothers from Nicaragua, the hotel's stunning location is breathtaking. From the elegantly rustic open air dining rooms, lounges and pool, you look straight across to the volcano and lake with a expansive vista. Don't be intimidated by the adventurous road leading to the hotel--it is passable. Once you are there, the hospitality is wonderful--warm and personal, very eager to please with detailed help on trips to take and what you would like to eat. The hosts are extremely personable and delightful to spend time talking to and very generous. Luis' special chicken was extraordinary and breakfast a feast of fruit and yogurt and local egg specialty.The casitas have very comfortable beds, lovely simple furnishings and pretty individualized murals.You can open the screened french doors and run the fan and the breeze makes the sleeping tropical but very comfortable. This is just a heavenly, nature friendly and elegant retreat from the world.

I stayed here 1 week in August.

Wake up, literally, at this “gateway to heaven” (the meaning of “Puerta Del Cielo”) in this paradisiacal place in communion with nature. Let the staff pamper you all day long; have three (or more) glorious meals a day and have any cocktail or drink you crave prepared by skilled hands. Or take a day trip to a location full of history or natural beauty in this recently discovered international tourist destination: Nicaragua, the safest country in Central America. Come before in overrun by the tourist avalanche.

Admire this creative rustic architecture of the giant huts designed by famous award-winning naval architect Juan Carlos Espinosa ( www.espinosainc.com) dotted by dozens of colorful murals adorning the facilities and depicting scenes from local folklore and legends. Have a massage, or sauna, or manicure or pedicure anytime you crave.

The rooms are large and exquisitely furnitured with local woods and materials, its walls adorned by the signature murals by the same remarkable painter. You can relax in the hammocks in your room private deck while the sun sets by the fuming volcano among a concert of singing birds.

The location is breathtaking: Green everywhere…the Masaya Lagoon (a lake in fact) is at your feet 200 meters down a cliff. Above, to your left, the impressive Santiago Volcano expelles smoke from its enormous caldera. In between you have dozens of square miles of secondary forest encompassing the Parque Nacional Volcan Masaya created 35 years ago, and populated by numerous animals including large cats, mammals and hundred of bird species.

In addition to visiting this National Park, you can have an easy stroll down to the shores of the Masaya lagoon; you can also trek in the forest. Recently a canopy and rappel adventure opened nearby (1 mile away) for the adrenaline junkies with drops down to 100 meters. You can also get daily trips to the major tourist cities of Masaya and colonial Granada, founded by Spaniard conquistador Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba in 1524. Here you can see colonial architecture in churches, mansions, museums.

Granada is at the shores of the huge 8,000 sq. kms sweet water Lake Cocibolca. Don’t miss taking THE ULTIMATE boat tour and admire the lush vegetation covering hundreds of tiny, paradisiacal islands. This lake is so big that the Spaniard Conquistadors thought it was the ocean. They only realized their mistake when they saw one of their horses drink its water.

You can also go to one of the many tropical beaches less than 1 hour away from the hotel and spend your day swimming, sun tanning and enjoying glorious seafood. All for a fraction of what you’d pay at home.

Luis Alberto, the manager will be more than happy to take you anywhere you want to go in the hotels new, air conditioned van.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this boutique hotel, a once in a lifetime experience, like no other.

Our adventure started by getting there in the evening hours, little did we know that one of the owners, Luis, was waiting for us in town .... to guide us to the location.

I called and got a hold of Luis right away and not only did he wait for me for but also took us out to dinner to the best Nicaragua restaurant in town!

We spent two wonderful days being pampered by Luis, Oscar and Mauricio. We spent hours playing cards, dominoes and Jenga with the Staff ... food was delicious!!! service Extraordinary, I have told all of my friends about it and we can't wait to go back soon!
