I went to Machele for one week retreat in December 2020 It was the most amazing week with great food, relaxing time and amazing staff. As soon as you arrive you have a shuttle waiting for you from Machele Hotel, the driver is the most amazing sweet driver. The owners Chance and Kate are always there for you to make sure you have the most amazing experience. They offer yoga, pilates classes as well, they also have tours to Granada city , Vulcano and farmers market they really think about every detail. Ok and the food :)) Amazing fresh food!!! I won’t forget my first day I arrived so tired and they welcome our group with the most amazing lobster night it was amazing no words ! Ok if you are looking for a relaxing , good food , friendly staff , great surf with warm water please check out this place is worth it every dime !!! Ahhhh also if you are a surfer or like to fish omg perfect they arrange boat trips for surfing and fishing for you ! Ahhhh I can’t forget they have Salsa 💃 dance class and the teacher is unbelievable and was so much fun. Don’t waste your time and book your stay with them you won’t be disappointed I promise you !! Enjoy Nicaragua 🇳🇮 Juliana Bruni

We stopped into Machele's for dinner twice during our stay in Playa Gigante. Both times we received quality meals and good service. While their menu is higher priced than the other places we ate it is a bit more of an upscale environment. I would not hesitate to eat there again on our next visit.

Had dinner at Michele,s two nights. This was the most upscale restaurant we dined in at Playa Gigante. The food was good the service very good. They are higher priced than all the other places where we had dinner.

Well located in the centre of Playa Gigante, I am sure this is a nice spot to stay but we just had a dinner and later a lunch here. Good menu and food very passable though I felt they could achieve more with a little imagination. Excellent salad but the calamari everyone raves about a little on the dry side for my taste. Good service with a smile.
