This was our third trip to the Island of Ometepe and the one we´ve enjoyed the most. Hotel Villa Paraiso played an important part in making it a very enjoyable 4 day vacation. It´s situated at the perfect location on the island. Ometepe Island is probably one of the best kept secrets in the world! The volcanoes are awesome, the people are super friendly, the Ojo de Agua underground, spring fed, swimming hole is within walking distance from the hotel and all other attractions are available from the hotel site. From just across the street, our kids rode horses, rode bikes along the newly cobblestoned road and bike trails, and were transported to a lake to river kayaking site. The majority of the food at the hotel is very good and at fair prices. Fresh fruits for breakfast with yogurt was my wife´s favorite while the kids enjoyed the Nica typical breakfast. I had a delicious churrasco steak, seafood platter with a modest lobster tail, shrimp and fish fillet. Their broiled fish looks good and is super tasty. The hotel is right on the lake beach with plenty of special places to just hang out after a day of walking, rowing, riding and swimming. Hammocks, beach chairs, tables, are free to the guests. We were given a special price for a two bedroom cottage right next to the beach. Our cottage´s lakeview porch with a hammock, rocking chairs and even Betty the hotel dog, was perfect for an evening serenade with my guitar. The sound of crashing waves, the rushing wind and the swaying of palm trees off the monstrous lake entertained our sleep as we never used our A/C leaving the screened windows open all night. This place, as is most of the island, is very secure. As usual with Nicaraguan employees, they rarely volunteer any information, so you need to ask and they´ll respond. Once you strike up a conversation with them, they´re more than willing to serve you with the best! Nonetheless, the hotel owner lives across the street and is often on the hotel premises asking folks if they need anything; a very interesting couple: a Nicaraguan doctor and his Austrian wife. Great people! Room prices are a bit higher than the other hotels in the area, but again, this is about the most plushy hotel on Santo Domingo beach. It´s well worth the few extra bucks to stay at Villa Paraiso. I recommend the first two weeks of December when the weather is actually cool at nights and prices are also pre-seasonal. This could be a great place for a honeymoon or a family vacation! Enjoy!
