We visited February 2019. This beach was absolutely beautiful. We had food from the restaurant which was excellent. The staff was very friendly. We took surf lessons and thought the instructors did an awesome job. Would highly recommend this place.

The views from the rooms are absolutly stunning. Nothing beats being right on the beach. The food is out of this world. The staff is very kind and helpful. They make you feel at home. You feel so much at home you forget you are at a resort. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed the ride going to Playa Hermosa. Going through unpaved road, crossing streams, it was an adventure. That said PH is further away from the city giving it a more private location. Waiters of the restaurant would come by you wherever you sit to check what you would like to order and they would bring you your food. Relaxing area with hammocks, although benches under roofed huts are also available.

From the start of the trip the staff have been very accommodating. I had the mountain view room and it was great. Clean. Spacious. Safe. The only negatives I can think of is I could hear evrything my neighbours were doing. Noise travels here. Also the doors don't shut completely so the wind made it hard to fall asleep. Finally the restaurant is pricey and there is only one healthy option. However the place is gorgeous and after the day tourists leave it's quite special.

We enjoyed traveling throughout southwestern Nicaragua to see the sights, visit Granada, Ometepe Island, etc. But THIS was the PERFECT spot to be for our last 2 nights before we left town. The rooms are basic, but let's be real - if you need a fancy room with a ton of amenities, this probably isn't the vacation for you. Get outside and enjoy the beach, the horse back riding, the surfing, exploring for sand dollars (there were a ton!), and the nightly bonfire. We also had the opportunity to watch the ecolodge release 70 baby turtles. The beach goes on for days and because the ecolodge owns 2,000 acres, there is NO other condos or hotels around. This place is perfect for groups, a romantic getaway or a family. The food was a bit more pricey than what we were used to in other areas of our visit to Nicaragua, but the pricing was aligned with the gorgeous view and great staff the ecolodge has to offer. We will definitely be back and bring our two young boys with us next time.

Room Tip: Pay a little more to get a room with a balcony and a hammock. And we liked the 2nd floor
