“Monty's gets better each time I return”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Just finished a successful mission trip in Nicaragua and my stay at Monty's Surf Lodge was Icing on the cake! Loved the new cabana's that they've added and the new kitchen/ dinning pavilion. I can't say enough good things about the Awesome food and service. Each year I return, Monty/Gerry and crew seem to raise the bar with service and accommodations. Keep up the good work guys! See you back in late October.

I traveled to Jiquilillo with a volunteer organization with no inclination of what our accommodations would be. Monty's quickly became home. Not only were the staff of Monty's gracious and kind, they took pride in making Monty's the best it could be.

You will sleep with sand on your toes and a mosquito net around your bed, but Jiquilillo will become a part of you and you won't want to leave. The food is good, the beans may betray you though! Overall, Jiquilillo was the best experience of my life, and Monty's definitely helped me make the most of my time in Nicaragua.

Monty's is billed as a Beach Lodge/Surf Camp and that's exactly what it is. It's clean, functional accomadations located right on a really nice beach and is intended as a hostel-like environment for those interested in doing Voluntourism. The rooms are very basic but clean,the staff is friendly and helpful and go out of their way for you and the food is excellent. If you want to be pampered and spoiled this is not for you but if you want a pleasant environment and a very reasonable price this will be great.

A life changing experience! I was at Monty's for a volunteer trip and it was the most wonderful and inspiring trip. It is truly in the heart of paradise and the people there at Monty's and in the village treat you like a part of their family. Always a smile, laughter and very warm hearts. Gerry runs a tight ship and it's a wonderfully unique "resort". I loved my room overlooking the ocean, the food was awesome and the volunteer experiences were amazing. An absolute must for anyone interested in a vacation centered around humanitarian service!!!

Beyond perfection. Here with a volunteer group and couldnt ask for anything more. The people here treat you like family and accomodate your every need. Plus its paradise! Never a dull moment between the surfing, the bar, pool or just getting to know the locals. I am currently here for my first time and some of the volunteers and I are already trying to book a flight back here soon. This place is a must!

Montys is an awesome place. Beautiful beachfront property and plenty of hammocks to lay around in. The staff is wonderful and will help you with whatever you need. There are always guards on duty and you always feel safe.

We spent a week at Monty's in March 2014 and had a great time. The beach is right outside your door, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the food was enjoyable. We helped out on various projects when we weren't swinging in a hammock and listening to the surf or playing in the warm Pacific water. A thatched hut on the beach, good deeds returned to the community, and a sweet tiki bar at the end of the day, who could ask for more? Oh, and there are tours you can go on if you want, and the kayak trip into the mangrove forest was absolutely beautiful. Lots of birds and an amazing sunset. We can't wait to go back! Cheers to all the wonderful folks there!
