We felt somewhat disappointed by this place after reading about it in Lonely Planet and booking it on their recommendation. It is very isolated unless you have your own transport, yes they do rent bikes but you have to get there first! And not cheap to rent from them. It's a farm down a dirt track which has some rooms,...

There was nothing enjoyable about our stay in Finca Samaria. Our room was dirty, seemingly the bathroom hadn't been cleaned. It was also crawling with hundreds of mosquitoes, without any mosquito net, meaning we had to sleep cocooned in our sheet sleeping bags. Although a lot of people seem to have had positive experiences with the family running the farm,...

Having read positive reviews of this place , our high expectations were quickly dashed upon arrival. The room was far from clean, the plumbing was faulty, the food was unremarkable, but the hosts were indeed very friendly. The best aspect was the incredible view of the lake and windmills on the opposite shore. Unfortunately, the peaceful ambiance was frequently shattered...

We rented a motorbike and discovered the island, getting good advices from the familiy before. They ask you if you wanna have fresh dinner. We...

The food here is delicious. We had bread right out of the oven and fresh vegetables in a beautiful setting. It is right on the lake and is really quiet. The owners are really nice! Definitely would recommend stopping by!

After a grueling bike ride where I thought I was going to pass out due to the heat, my wife and I stumbled upon this amazing place. The rice and vegetables with tofu we had was huge and out of this world, and the place is completely eco-friendly. Would definitely recommend it. :o)

We didn't stay at the hotel but we did have a really wonderful stir fry with rice and tofu (they make their own tofu too!), it was all a surprise because we were just on a bike ride around the Ometepe island, but then we suddenly we found this sign on the road saying "beach" and we went that way,...

This place if absolutely outstanding. We just wanted to spend two days in Samaria and got stuck for ten days. The rooms are basic but very clean and you will get the best gallo pinto on the island by Doña Norma, the owner of the finca. Don't miss the sunsets with a "Flor de caña" rum and a peaceful atmosphere...

Staying at Finca Samaria was a great experience! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was welcoming, and Xavi was very helpful in securing us a guide for our hike up the volcano. I definitely recommend spending your time here in Ometepe!

We stayed 3 nights in Finca Samaria and we had a wonderfull stay. Rooms: don't expect hotel standard,but they are clean.

I learned fishing with the owner, we enjoyed great cocktails in the sun, we went horse riding with the owner,.....
