When you pay $100 a night the minimum you expect is to have hot water in the shower..... it is a very large hotel. On the top it features an infinity pool overlooking the lagoon with awesome views and it has a shuttle that can take you to the hilltop. At the bottom you can swim at the lake. The... More

Upon arrival the first thing I noticed that the resort is quite far from Granada and Masaya, about a 20-30 minute drive. The pros to this are that it is quiet, relaxed and there really are howler monkeys on site that you can see and hear while walking to the villas. The cons are that you have to arrange transportation... More

Wonderful experience in a beautiful location. Restaurant was first rate in a third world setting of oxen carts and cows / horses in the roads. Wonderful areas to visit nearby including volcanos, small towns, ceramics and artisans. A trip to the coast was spectacular, but the quiet of our exclusive volcano crater lake was memorable.

This place is better for families/couples and not for backpackers / young people. Very isolated. The room was extremely full of bugs (including in tr beds). The quantity was unbearable. The water in the showers were burning. Wifi wasn't working for most of the time. No supermarkets and either food or water are only sold at the hotel's restaurants.

Loll in a hammock watching the antics of Howler monkeys in the surrounding trees while being serenaded by 150 species of birds populating the Nature Preserve.
