“Perfection in Nicaragua.. Found!”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

We had an amazing trip to Nicaragua. Soma Surf Resort made our trip that much better. If you are a surfer , its right in the heart of the best breaks in Nicaragua but Soma brings the best of both worlds together. Great surf in a peaceful, relaxing and very upscale resort. I dont think anything else could come close.

The beauty of Soma was that you could go play hard all day (surf, hike, horseback ride, take day trips to Granada or the volcanoes) and return to a high class resort to eat, rest and hangout. Soma is located in the quiet hills above Guasacate Beach break and Popoyo Reef, two incredible waves. It's a 5 minute drive to the beach.

The bungalow we stayed in was top notch and very comfortable (brand new). You will find that this resort and the staff ( Hola Casey, Bill, Danny and crew!) are one of a kind - 5 stars for this part of the world for sure.

Tip- Because this resort is located in the rural Pacific coast, we would recommend you rent a 4WD truck and hire a driver (which can be arranged by Soma).

Stayed May 2011, travelled as a couple

I traveled to Nicaragua with my family without high expectations but was pleasantly suprised. During our week long vacation I most liked the lack of tourists and therefore relativelly unspoiled coastline and nature. Soma Surf Resort also offered more than we expected! It is classy, clean, and inviting,and blends in with the surrounding landscape. And what incredible views to the back and front. We are not surfers, but had lots to do including a great spot for R & R. The owners, Casey and Bill, are really friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had things to do when we felt like more adventure. They provided a driver for us, which was a real plus! It took the stress out of the fact that none of us spoke Spanish or, of course, knew our way around. They also have very fresh and tasty food, great Mohitos, and juice elixirs with a hint of ginger. This resort and part of Nicaragua is worth the trip. We'll be back!!
