We didn't stay at the B&B, we just visited to see the coffee plantation. We wanted to do a coffee tour on our trip and we heard that Magdalena was the place to go on the island. It was only $2 each to get in, so the price was good. They didn't have an English speaking guide and unfortunately we...

Finca Magdalena has incredible lush grounds full of amazing plants and flowers with an amazing view of the volcano. We hiked and enjoyed seeing the coffee plants and production on the farm along with incredible vegetation.

Would have liked the place, if it hadn't been for the fact that I had a lot of money taken from my bag in my single room. They just told me "oh that's strange", and that I was the only one with the key to the padlock. They wouldnt help me contact the police, so I could get a report...

I stayed 6 nights at Finca Magdalena, and I would have stayed longer if weather had been drier. I liked the volumes, the views, the kind staff, watching the howler monkeys from the finca, and the location for hiking maderas volcano. Its a 15mn hike from the main road through a beautiful path (you can meet monkeys there and lots...

I have stayed at Finca Magdalena 3 times in the last 11 years during each of my trips to Nicaragua and have loved every stay. If you are looking for an upbeat, fine dining, luxurious experience, look elsewhere. The finca is not a high class place but instead a very humble, organic, quiet and simple adventure. This co-op is owned...

I traveled with a group of friends. We went there mainly because it's a Cooperativa and we wanted to encourage it. For 4$, it is a food value if you are not too difficult. Beds in the dorms are camp beds. I didn't mind and had a good night sleep. Food service was however a bit problematic. It took ages...

If you want luxury dont go to Finca Magdalena. If youre looking for a place where you can sleep and have a proper meal: just go. The surrounding is amazing and the sunsets too. I stayed in a dorm and the beds were surprisely comfortable. The rooms can be noisy, so bring some earpluggs with you. The showers are ok,...

We were told to come here, and when we arrived, we could not figure out why. They have a lot of rooms, all of them were empty, there was only one other person staying there at the time! When most places in Nicaragua are booked solid at this time. Some of the rooms she showed us had no window, and...

Quiet place in the mountains. The walk/drive up is not easy but so worth it! Dont expect luxury. You get nature and authenticity. Best volcano and lake view ever! Its like a different world.... Even worth going up for a beer or to grab a bite!

“We stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The bathrooms are downstairs from the rooms, and there was a group of really loud people there the first night, so our room was pretty noisy. The 2nd night was great because we were some of the only people there!”
