The staff of Hacienda Puerta del Cielo truly go out of their way to make sure your experience is a once in a lifetime event. My brother and I just returned from a trip there (New Years 2016-17) and we loved how we got to know the staff due to the small size of the hotel. The size didn't keep the hotel from offering amenities that most large hotels don't, however. From expert navigation, tour offerings, guides, an unbeatable and unobstructed view of an active volcano, delicious meals and expertly crafted cocktails, this was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. Each casita is well appointed with its own stone shower, bathroom, minibar, porch and hammock, and there's zero interruption if you want to be alone. If you're looking for company, the staff is always happy to share stories about their home town or make you a delicious mojito. From the home base of the Hacienda, we got to explore Granada, Masaya Volcano at night, Apoyo Volcanic Lake, and Mombacho Cloud Forest and toured a local coffee plantation. We were even lucky enough to have gone at a time when a local nearby town was having a festival and got to attend that too, which was an awesome local experience that I don't think most hotels would have told us about. Every single person was professional, courteous, friendly, and happy to converse in either English or Spanish. I'd never been to Nicaragua before and felt like we got a full range of experiences - from street food to four star cuisine, beachfront to mountaintop (literally) - and it's all due to the expert management and recommendations from the staff. The food at the resort was also among the best we've had while traveling, and definitely was better than the off-site restaurants we tried. I would absolutely go back to the Hacienda, and am recommending it and Nicaragua to my friends looking for their next international trip!
