There is no denying the AMAZING views from the rooms, restaurant and pool area, but that's all I can really say was great about the stay. Food in the restaurant is good but over priced. I stayed in one of the "apartment" rooms which as REALLY old and like staying in a rustic old cabin that is not air or bug tight. The A/C itself did not work in our first room so we had to switch to another room. In that room the A/C was adequate but not great. The WIFI on both of the rooms was spotty and only worked will on one side of the rooms and not on the balcony at all. They advertise happy hour 2x1 but don't bother to tell you on the sign or when you are ordering that it is for cocktails only, not beer, so we didn't find out till we got the bill. The new studio rooms are much nicer than the old apartment rooms, but also much smaller with just one room, a closet and a bathroom.

Amazing location! The loft located just above restaurant is so great with the best view around, your own yoga studio and very well located for surfing right in your backyard! Highly recommend! For budget option the dorms are very affordable and comfy with same great location for surfing. They also have a great selection for board rentals.

I have no complaints. The restaurant was good, could be a bit better. I expected a little more polish from the photos. After the political and pandemic problems here, the place seems to have lost some luster, and needs a little more upkeep to keep it the way it deserves to be. The five star view and location make up for the rest being only OK.

Insane views every-time of the day, especially in the Loft. The hotel has everything you need. Restaurant is okay, but a bit expensive consider VAT and another tax is added on. There are two great Nicaraguan places down the road that do very cheap and delicious food. The pool could use a bit of love too.
