I stayed at Piedras y Olas in March and loved it. The new upper swimming pool has amazing views and is perfect for sunset views. I've stayed at Piedras y Olas before and find it just gets better each time. Their restaurant chef has added some great new items to the menu (the wood-fired pizzas are the best in Nicaragua and better than I've had many places in the U.S.!) and their special lobster fritters are always tasty.
There is some construction going on at the resort - like everywhere else in rapidly growing Nicaragua (tourism is booming!) - but I found that it is very easy to reserve a room away from the activity if you desire. I read the last review about Security guards and don't necessarily agree. At night and early mornings there are folks monitoring the grounds, which seems important as the resort actually consists of many private vacation homes that are being rented out as hotel rooms, but it is fairly innocuous. Any visit to Central America comes with a "cost" - and having someone ensuring your safety is a plus in my book.
Piedras y Olas now offers massages - in your room or poolside from professional massage therapists (cheap at something like $40/hour!) - and they are opening a lap pool for guest workouts shortly, so it seems like all the developments are very positive for hotel guests and vistors. If you have a sense of adventure and are looking for great food, beautiful accommodations, smiling service and a 2 minute walk to the cute central market and the beach, I'd very much recommend this hotel.
