Upon arriving at the remote little village of Altagracia, you drive through a lush plantain grove into the beautifully manicured grounds of the hotel Finca San Juan Del Isla. Artfully integrated into the stunning natural surroundings of Lake Nicaragua, the main house and little wooden cabinas on stilts line the lake. Directly below the waves lap along the sandy beach...

You will say "wow" the second you arrive. Stayed only 2 nights. Wish it had been more. Log cabin right on the beach. Great view from bed. Staff were amazing and helpful and friendly and thankfully for us spoke good English. There are chairs and umbrellas on the beach to use or 20 or so hammocks to lie in. So...

Maybe we arrived at a bad time (Dec 1), but we did not have a great experience. The hotel only had maybe 6 guests and most of us were bunked in a back bungalow. Even knowing they were there, we rarely saw anyone. The first day was earily devoid of any other people other than the at the restaurant. We...

I only stayed for 1 night so take this review with a pinch of salt because I may not be best placed to fairly describe it. However, from what I did experience.. The drive is via 1-2k of plantation fields. You would need your own car or transport if you wanted to explore outside of the hotel, although I believe...

Visiting Ometepe Island and the Finca San Juan de la Isla is a unique experience. The island feels like a different world. The natural beauty and the kind Nicaraguese made the experience special. The finca is a working farm. You can do as little/as much as you want. Enjoying the playa is probably the major activity!

First of all you have to visit Ometepe, it's a beautiful place and you have to stay in Finca San Juan de la Isla, the people that works there is friendly and know the island, so they can recommend you what to do there. Try to stay 3 - 4 days. The cottages are really well design, clean, beautiful and...

Beautiful garden and lakeview. The restaurant is good and the hotel rents very good bikes if you want to bicycle around. The standard rooms are a bit gloomy, so the beach cabins might be a better option.

This hotel is on a beautiful piece of property, very secluded and romantic. The hotel itself is only OK- very basic amenities, limited wifi, no pool, and we were without hot water in our room. Ometepe is an awesome place though. The gnats in November were crazy at the hotel and all over the island- swarms of them. I think...

The property is quite lovely, especially the common areas of the dinning area and common sitting area. The beach is a little on the rough side but it's fine. The views are amazing. If you don't have your own vehicle then you are stuck paying high prices for dinner. $10 for a plate of pasta seems a bit excessive for...

Stayed here for 3 nights, staff were excellent, the hotel layout is lovely as it is a series of buildings built around a main building with a lounge/TV/reading/kids room and also a restaurant with a view of the beach and a bar. The rooms are good, big and lovely hot showers (which we didn't get in many places in Nicaragua)....
