Hacienda Puerto Del Cielo Eco Lodge & Spa greatly exceeded our expectations! The lodge is in a remote area on the edge of a nature preserve about 1.5 hours from the Managua airport. It is important to note that in the more remote areas of Nicaragua the roads are very bumpy dirt roads, which serve to amplify the adventure! For those who appreciate art and architecture, the owners designed a beautiful retreat in the perfect space atop a mountain with views of the Masaya Volcano & lagoon.

The service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the attention given to assure our utmost satisfaction was stellar. Many thanks to Ruth, Oscar, Adrian and Ariel for their hospitality and service, warm smiles and genuine care. Ariel was an excellent tour guide, going above and beyond to ensure our complete delight!

A must see is the Masaya Volcano, as there are no words to describe the sheer latent power of nature on display. The boiling cauldron of red molten lava was a breathtaking sight that will be etched in your mind forever. The jungle tour to see the parrots migrate back to their nests is a marvel to behold! The Granada city tour and boat ride to Monkey Island in Lake Nicaragua was a fun experience. History lovers will be enthralled with the city of Granada. Be sure to spend your first and last day at the lodge relaxing in the pool, trying the local beverages, and swinging lazily in the colorful handmade hammocks. Add a 2 hour massage (in your room) to wrap up a perfect day.

Lastly, it is wonderful to see the owners, JC & Linda, supporting the local community education. Bring some school supplies and crafts for the children. It was such a privilege to visit the school and meet the children and teacher. They will long hold a place dear to your heart.

You won't want to leave Hacienda Puerto Del Cielo Eco Lodge & Spa. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is worth the extra $$$

This lodge is in a very remote area but the views and peace and quiet make it worth the back roads drive.....The views across the jungle, over Lagoon Masaya and of Volcano Masaya are unparalleled. We enjoyed our 3 night stay and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We did a couple outings which were fun but as someone else mentioned....overpriced. We enjoyed the very relaxing atmosphere.....lounging, reading, swimming are the order of the day. Night falls early so evenings are quiet which was fine with us ....Besides massages being available this cannot be considered a spa. I do feel that the owners could bring this place up a notch in terms of providing a bit more to do on the property as given the remoteness and lack of amenities one can only stay for a few days. A little more polish and what is already a beautiful spot could be even more incredible.

Room Tip: From what I could tell all casitas have a great view.

We took a chance with a Hacienda outside of a city or beach location and felt we struck gold. Everything was well thought out. The paper products, i.e. napkins, kleenex and T.P. were all excellent American quality and size. No scrimping there. The in-room amenities were plentiful and, so not to attract mosquitoes, had no fragrance. The lotion was rich, and of high quality. The "casitas" were colourfully painted with great attention to detail and well maintained. We never encountered a crawling bug in the casita.
The meals were served with a magnificent view of an active volcano. During one of the excursions that was offered I can now say that I have looked into the fire of an active volcano.
Last but not least, the staff was absolutely lovely. All were engaging and eager to work on their English. Our driver/guide, Ariel, drove with a steady hand and great care. We were always delivered safe and sound to our destination.
Thank you to all of the employees of Hacienda Puerta Del Cielo.

Started a backpacking trip with some luxury and pampering at the Hacienda! Rooms were beautiful and always clean, food was excellent, and owner JC and his staff were beyond accommodating. The arranged trips were a nice break from lounging in the eternity pool with drinks in hand, and we also ventured out on our own a few times to the towns nearby. Traditional dancers came to perform one night and benefit a local school (tons of fun). We left with so many new friends and wonderful memories!

What more could you ask for? From the moment I spoke with the owners JC and then Linda about making reservations at HPDC I knew we were going to have a momentous Vacation. And our stay @ HPDC was truly utterly amazing. We traveled to this beautiful country in August, and this place was a rare find. From the moment we were greeted at the airport by Ariel, until our departure, a week later, we were pampered beyond measure. The views were breathtaking and the place was meticulous! The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff were eager to please and very accommodating, and we spent many nights at the bar enjoying their company. Linda the owner was tremendous at planning our excursions, allowing us to enjoy adventures but also giving us plenty of relaxation time. We also had the privilege of meeting JC, who gave us great incite about Nicaragua! Unfortunately every vacation has to end, and we were very sad to leave this beautiful place and our newly extended family! We definitely want to visit again! ( Their website is exactly what the place looks like!! And I would be happy to answer any questions!)

Room Tip: All rooms are equally beautiful.
