We bought this vacation through a mystery auction in 2012 from LuxuryLink. The package include airport transfers, daily breakfast and a welcome drink. When we arrived we found our driver and made our way to the resort. It was a 2 hour trek but well worth it. Saw many volcanoes and different crops along the way.
The resort is on the side of a hill and has a bazillion stairs. This is not a vacation for the out of shape. I believe it was 153 steps from the reception area to our casa (Casa Ensueno). We were flabbergasted by the size of our accommodations. We were expecting a one bedroom typical sized hotel; instead we had an entire house to ourselves. We could have slept in a different bed almost every night. It was a two bedroom, three bed and a futon set up. Would be perfect for a large family! The Casa includes 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining room and living room. The TVs are a bit outdated, but we didn't travel to Nicaragua to watch the tube. And there was wifi so we were all set with our devices.
The resort is kept up very well and absolutely stunning. We went in early November and the resort seemed pretty empty. We had our choice of the three different pools; rarely did we have to share a pool.
It's about a 10 minute walk 'downtown' downhill. Tons of great little shops in the city and restaurants along the beach. The resort restaurant is pretty great as well and they have room service in the event you don't want to make the 100+ step trek down to dine.
The spa is also fantastic. We did a 1.5 hour couples massage and it was absolutely fantastic.
