First things first: The location on the beach is extremely beautiful and it might be hard to find a calmer place in Nicaragua. Crabs, birds, iguanas and turtles make this a real nature experience and it's a great place to relax.
But: The price they charge is very, very confident. Almost 200 USD per night include all meals (they are tasty, but the choice is very limited) but don't make up for what you get. The bungalows are tasteful but basic, the toilets don't have a flush and there is no electricity at all. Since there are not even candles, we dined in the dark or with our own flashlights.
It's a good place to get away from it all - stress, noise, people, but also comfort.
