What more can people do to help you? This place far from the best in the world, or even in Nicaragua, or even in San Juan, but these guys here were so nice. Booked two nights, then added another, at some ridiculously low rate, and then they said, 'but if you book three nights, you get the fourth free'. So we did. But I wish they hadn't said that, the Colonial is peanuts, and it felt like taking advantage of their hospitality by staying another night...for free. Breakfast too was served every morning, coffee and toast, by the friendly staff, except for one morning, it was just bread. The reason? The frequent power cuts that affect Nicaragua regularly, no electricity to even make toast! At least twice the power failed during the night, so much so that with the AC out, the nights were hot. But this is not their fault; both times, the whole town, save the ice cream parlour and the bank, was in darkness, and it would be churlish and naive to hold that against them. Just take a torch, enjoy the rain, and get in the spirit with it, as it's a fascinating place.
