Cozy and small place with what seems to be a private access beach. The restaurant offers gourmet level dishes and the “icacos en miel” dessert is a must. The budget for this place may be a bit higher than normal but definitely worth it.

A small ecolodge with great, helpful staff (with many who spoke english). The lodge is just back from the ocean with a soft sand beach with no large rocks. The waves can be big if you like riding the waves (equipment available). For me, AC is a must (only a few units have it). There can be tons of bugs (last time I was there) but very few this last August. We drive there on the shorter roads but had to turn back and go though Tola as there was a "river" coming across the road due to a recent rain. WiFi is spotty at times.Over all a very pleasant 4 day stay.

Room Tip: pick one with AC

Never having been to Nicaragua we loved the ride from Managua as we got to see how the rural people lived. Our driver was from the hotel and even took us into a small town to find a snack. The ride took about 3 hours. It is more like 2 hours during the dry season we were told because they can take a different route.

We loved our hut. We only used the downstairs but the upstairs was good for kids. Definitely insects get in, but we never had a problem in the room that made us uncomfortable. The ceiling fan and floor fan were very nice to keep us cool during the night with the windows open.

We loved the outdoor shower. The bathroom is in your own walled in garden which is pretty cool.

Our food was really good. Some of the best steaks I have ever had! Everything was really fresh and made to order. As we were on our honeymoon and just wanting to relax we were fine with enjoying a drink while our food was freshly prepared. The portions were of adequate size. Don't expect Outback Steakhouse portions. Haha. Pricing was similar to the tourist restaurants in Granada.

Mario was an amazing waiter/bartender. Very personalized service and likable. All staff was nice as well. Knowing some Spanish is helpful but not absolutely necessary.

We had a surfing lesson but the waves weren't perfect. Our instructor worked at the hotel and was very nice. Maybe driving to a different beach would be better for beginners.

We loved the beach. It really was amazingly beautiful and the water so warm. Also they have a nature trail we LOVED. It was muddy, but we went really slow so we could check out the amazing amount of bugs in the forest. Big spiders, ants, wasps, butterflies. We saw a frog, iguana and a boa snake. We saw a large turtle's tracks on the beach but didn't see any actual turtles. The front desk even let us borrow a flashlight to look for them at night. The tide pools at Rabbit Island north of the hotel were very cool. Some little creatures I hadn't seen before.

We loved our stay here and appreciated the staff. Our only suggestion at check out was more hooks in the room and bathroom for drying towels or swimsuits.

So if you are a bit adventurous and want a beautiful relaxing beach vacation you should check them out.

When we arrived we got a nice, very tasty welcome drink.
So we already knew we will be going to enjoy our time.
Our daughter loved the swimmingpool, the beach is so quiet and all for yourself. We had fun with horse riding. Staff is very flexible.

Mario the bar tender knows how to make a good cocktail and prices are reasonable. Very nice guy! He even knew my name, what worried me a bit, that I was ordering too much. But it is holiday.

The resort is small scale and many people try to make your stay comfortable. So prices of food, drinks are all on relative scale too. Not much higher than Granada city with large competition and not the view at Punta teonoste.

The bungalows are open so traffic of bugs is high. But that is normal on a beach in nature. And not sitting in a block of appartments with a boulevard. Perhaps that means the word Eco? So bring a bugspray for 2$ and we had a mobile klamboo tent, fully closed, putted on the bed, used in Africa. So our daughter of 6 was perfectly safe and we had a quiet night. The shower and toilet was clean and outside.

Before we emailed with David on turtle arrival. He did the trouble to inform what are the posibillities to see them. He was unlucky and needed to start his day at 0.00 am and David drove us in the night with a big 4x4 to a remote beach. After just giving up hope we got the jackpot and on his advice when, we could make some nice pictures.

So if you love nature and you enjoy motivated staff, it is the place to be!
