I was drawn to stay in Finca Venecia because in the 2012 Lonely Planet the hotel was mentioned as part of the sustainable tourism of the area... there was a website that featured over 20 finca "farm stays". Venecia was seen as one of the least expensive and most basic accommodations, which is what my friend and I were wanting. On arrival to the finca it was a full on hotel with private rooms and a restaurant. Obviously they hadn't updated the website in a while. As a group of 5 girls we were able to negotiate a room/ cabin with 5 beds for $6 a night.
The whole time we were staying at Hotel Finca Venecia we had to be cautious of the money. They would give you the price in dollars but then wanted you to pay in cordobas unless you had exact change. Their math skills were a little dodgy and would attempt to change the exchange rate on you or not give back the right amount of money back trying to say that they didn't have anymore change. We did have a good time at the hotel and it was within walking distance to a few attractions and restaurants (I would highly recommend the comedor located further E closer to the pier. The hotel was also able to book a horse riding tour ($7/hr) for 4 of us and a $10 full day bicycle rental for the other girl.
The meals were nice, however a little more pricy than some other places (180 cordobas for dinner and roughly 60-80 for breakfast). The place had a nice ambience with a gorgeous view overlooking Lago Nicaragua. I enjoyed lounging in the hammocks over the afternoon and could catch up on life with the free wi-fi.
Not what I was expecting, however we had a good stay.
