Besides the rough mattresses this place is OFF THE CHAIN!!!! awesome place to stay awesome price awesome food and they pick you up from the airport. first time out of the country for me and i stayed here with some friends. Had the most amazing experience ever!!! if you guys want to go on a surf adventure talk to a guy named Jeff he took us out on a boat ride to the reef break at play grounds and he also offers fishing boat charters. the restaurant also takes credit cards as well just in case you run out of cash like i did. the staff is really nice and friendly. make sure your bring lots of sunblock and a fine piece of mind. deff would recommend this place to anyone who wants to go to popoyo even if your ballin on a budget. well worth the time and money. totaly exceeded my expectations, best bang for your buck fo sho!!!

We were in Nicaragua (our second trip) for 18 days and decided to spend a few nights at the beaches in Popoyo. Hotel Popoyo is the first hotel on the road that lines the beach so we decided to check it out. I was immediately impressed on how clean and meticulously landscaped the hotel was.

They had two types of rooms available - a $45/night plain room or a $62/night luxury room. The luxury room was a little over our budget but it was so nice we decided to treat ourselves for two nights

Our room was wonderfully decorated (the best I've seen in Nicaragua) with a really comfortable king size bed and pillows, satellite tv, ceiling fan, cold a/c, and the hot water shower was welcome after only having cold water showers for the past few weeks on Little Corn and Ometepe.

Wifi was available but we couldn't get a signal in our room. It worked well in the pool area and restaurant though

We only ate breakfast in the restaurant (included with the room) which was delicious - eggs, toast, gallo pinto, coffee and orange juice.

The beach is about a 100 meter walk from the hotel - good swimming without much of a rip or undertow. There are a few restaurants at the end of the road - a 20 minute walk form the hotel. Be sure to eat at Rana Roja Pizza next door to the hotel - really good wood fired pizza made with homemade meats and cheeses.

Cant wait to go back to Popoyo!

this was my first trip to nica (my partners 7th and my sons 4th trip respectively) and i can't wait to get back. this hotel was positively the cleaniest hotel i have stayed in in a long time and we live in a resort town. the staff was friendly and the food was superb. i would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone going to the coast.

We wanted to visit the beach during our short visit to Nicaragua, but we wanted to be sure that we went to an area that wasn't so touristy (aka steer clear of San Juan del Sur). That took us to looking at Popoyo beach. And we had heard great things about Hotel Popoyo (the hotel was formally known as "El Toro")

Let me tell you -- what I heard was exactly spot on. Hotel Popoyo was great:

*free wi-fi
*a/c in rooms
*beautiful bathrooms
*great wood craftsmanship (tropical hardwoods)
*clean facilities
*FANTASTIC FOOD (restaurant is now called "El Toro"
*Service with a smile
*Assistance round the clock for coordinating tours/transport etc
*Great eating/lounge area (very breezy and comfortable
*other guests were mindful of not being to loud in public spaces, etc
*The price is definitely right for the value

While I did not stay this trip at any of the other locations, some of the other fellow travelers staying at Hotel Popoyo who did stay at other hotels told me that this Hotel was the best in the area.
