We stayed for our first two nights in Nicaragua, and loved the experience. The hotel was beautiful, with inviting, comfortable courtyard areas (one with a pool) and prompt, friendly service. The rooms were quite large and very clean. The city itself was enchanting, and the hiking/exploration attractions in the area were wonderful as well.
Weekday breakfast in the small cafe at the front of the building was excellent, and on a less windy day the outside seating would have been even better. The weekend brunch in Salon Azul was not quite as nice, but perhaps that was because we were late to the table.
The only negative was the loud music in the front courtyard on Friday night, but it did not keep us awake. And the fact that free "national drinks" (Flor de Caña rum, macua, etc.) were available in the disco area helped to compensate.
