I didn't stay at the place to sleep but went out for dinner and the food was amazing! Great atmosphere and the people who work there are very friendly. Highly recommend the pizza gorgonzola, the best! Everything is very clean, good value for food and the pool is gorgeous. The owner even brought us to our hostel when we didn't feel like walking back. Thank you for the lovely evening, keep up the good work!

If I could summarize my time in Popoyo, at 99 Surf Lodge to one word... It would be magical. I was motivated to book the majority of my time in Nicaragua at 99 Surf Lodge as I was looking for a beach retreat where I could truly unwind. 99 Surf Lodge exceeded my expectations. Located on the secluded beaches of Playa Popoyo, sits this beautiful, comfortable and peaceful accommodation. Every morning waking to the sounds of the waves and wilderness, the warm air and blue skies seemed like a dream. Although I kept rather relaxed during my stay at 99, I also enjoyed runs on the beach, exercising in the gym (even managed to persuade another visitor to instruct a yoga class!) lots of playing in the ocean and cooling down in the incredible infinity pool. The friends I was traveling with enjoyed a couple of surfing classes, just down the beach, which they were very satisfied with the overall experience. The hotel manager did a great job at organizing this for my girlfriends on relatively short notice. I assumed that I would be eating a lot of rice & beans and exploring the local cuisine during my stay, yet this was not the case. The in house restaurant, Taverna 99 offered so many delicious options, I looked forward to trying something new each day. Some of my favourites were the Ceviche and of course the Fire Oven Pizza! As someone who follows a more narrowed diet, I was super impressed with the amount of healthier options on the menu. They also were very open to accommodate any of my further requests. It was hard to say goodbye to this little slice of heaven but I am happy to know I have found such a special place in Nicaragua that I can return to again.

I absolutely loved 99 Surf Lodge! I stayed in a private double room with a friend. The pool was gorgeous and it's directly on a beach (which is beautiful). I felt very safe and comfortable the entire stay. The food was good and the staff was extremely helpful. This hotel is pretty new and felt very lux. It's about a 10-15 walk on the beach to the main surf spot. The other hotel guests were very friendly and the owner is always around checking in with the guest - it felt like a really nice little community throughout our stay.

Small place, about 6 little houses, one of them a dorm, the other places are luxurious private rooms. Dorm houses 4 people, lights in bed did not work, shower head was not working properly (not adjustable, 10 random streams of water). They got proper lockers, during night there is a security guard. Location is right on the beach, nice and properly maintained pool, really friendly kitchen staff. Nice pizza and great daily specials. No surfboards for rent, had to rent them at another hostel (10 minute walk, Magnifique Rock Hostel). I would recommend this place for if you want to have some time on your own, read a book and relax. If you're searching for the hostel vibe you can easily walk to Magnifique Rock.
