This is more than a hotel - it is like going to an art museum. Vivian Nissen is an owner/artist that has handpainted walls, murals, tables, doors, and crafted pieces of art. Her husband, Adolfo Cesar oversees the hotel operations. If you went straight from the airport to this hotel, you would believe Nicaragua is one of the most beautiful tropical locations in the world. The grounds are immaculate and there is always a light breeze. This is not a typical hotel, it is more like a large bed and breakfast. The rooms vary in size from single to family rooms. Each is decorated differently than the next. They all have hot water (which is not typical in Nicaragua) and lovely sitting areas outside most rooms.
The staff is very accomodating and the owners are bilingual which is very beneficial for many visiting from North America. There is a restaurant which seats both inside and outside, serving at beautiful handpainted tables. They have wonderful food and the best coffee in Nicaragua.
There is a pool, a duck pond, swingset and trampoline. I have seen large, catered events and dinners held at the hotel, but have also sat and enjoyed a book and a cup of coffee in complete silence. They have a convention center type area that can be used for large gatherings or conferences. Wireless Internet is available in some areas of the hotel. It is about 1/2 mile walk from the town square of San Marcos.
We are N. Armericans living in Nicaragua and this is our favorite place to hosts teams and individuals. We always know they are in good hands. I gave this hotel the best of ratings comparing it to other hotels in this country. If you are looking for a chain hotel, this won't be your style but if you are looking for something that you are not going to find in the states, it can't be beat.
