We stayed here for 2 nights early August and we love the place. The cabins are very cozy and private with your own balcony reaching into the forest, a lovely swimming pool, excellent food and hosts that make the best out of your stay.
The road from San Juan del Sur up to Las Mananitas was muddy though transitable with a 4 wheel drive. The last stretch, turning of the Chocolate, and the roads to the beaches are very good. The beaches are in walking distance if you like a warming up before diving into the Pacific. You have a choice of at least three beaches in the proximity.
The infrastructure of the hotel is excellent and you can see and feel that a lot of attention has been paid to the details. The cabin is very complete including mosquiteros, a very well equipped kitchen if you would like to do your own cooking, hammocks, deck chairs, books in french and english, etc. No distraction from the world wide web or mobile phones. Really a place to relax, forget the 'que haceres' of the big city and enjoy the beautiful setting, nature, and sounds of nature.
The food is excellent, dinner and breakfast is made according to your persponal wishes. Food is freshly made with enthousiasm.
We are going back for another couple of day to enjoy the sounds of nature!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched atop a country hill, near the village of San Juan del Sur, Las Mananitas must surely be the tiniest resort in all of Nicaragua! Two cozy cottages, a nicely designed and relaxing pool, and the owners’ house. Set alongside a dead-end country road that opens up on two magnificent beaches, Las Mananitas offers unequalled tranquility. Nestled among trees, each cabin is equipped with a deck that provides a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the valley. ... more less
