Ola Popoyo exceeded our expectations in every way. We were provided all the amenities of home. This is easily the best house on the entire strip of beach and was confirmed by the many locals we met on our trip. :) It is apparently the only house with a pool and a swim up bar, and super easy access to the beach and surf. You can walk to the amazing tide pools in less than 10 minutes.
Karina, the property manager made herself available whenever we needed her. She was super informative and helped us with anything we needed, from excursions to setting up transportation, she knew all the best locals to get in contact with. We always felt safe and taken care of when she set anything up for us. She definitely went above and beyond for our group.
Sonia, our chef, was seriously one of the highlights of the trip! She not only accommodated 3 types of dietary needs, but did it in a way that was very inclusive without compromising taste or variety. The food was fresh, simple and delicious. We didn't know what to expect when planning our trip in the way of food, and looking back, we couldn't recommend it more since there is not much else nearby to eat.
When you are in Popoyo, be sure to employ Berry, the massage therapist to take you to a whole new level of relaxation! I've had dozens of massages, and she's definitely in the top 3 of my favorites. She starts with an assessment of your body, asks questions about your daily routine (work, exercise, diet) and takes all of it into account when doing her massage. Berry provided a massage tailored for my body coming from years of experience in her field. She is truly a master of her craft. Do yourself a favor and get a massage from this woman... you will not regret it!
Whenever I find myself back in Nicaragua, Ola Popoyo is where I will stay!
