We stayed at Soma at the end of December with our two teenage girls. We had an absolutely amazing time! The owners Bill and Casey are so nice and helpful, and the rest of the staff (especially Kevin and Roberto) were fabulous. We had never surfed before and took two surfing lessons with Bill and Kevin...they were incredibly patient and...

Visiting Soma was the vacation of a lifetime. I cannot say enough amazing things about it! Casey and Bill have really thought of everything. The resort is stunning. The bungalows are such a nice little oasis. The beds were super comfortable! The food was out of this world. I am still dreaming of the fresh juices and the fish and...

This was my 4th trip to Soma and I love it more every time I go. This time, I brought my mom - a non-surfer and someone who can't really be in the sun - so I was nervous she wouldn't have a good time. We all had a blast! This place is great for anyone who enjoy a vacation...

The drive from the airport in Managua to Soma turned out to be very interesting - we went from a bustling city to the sparsely populated Pacific coast through beautiful countryside, past an active volcano and a number of dormant ones. Our driver was quite knowledgeable about every part of the area we drove through and about the history and...

My wife and I spent three glorious days at this wonderful spot. Bill, Casey, and Kevin and the wonderful staff went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. We can't wait to come back with the rest of the family. There is something for everyone; surfing, swimming, yoga, massage, fantastic food and more! While you...

I have traveled through many countries and I've stayed at numerous places and this resort by far was the best ever. I am an avid surfer and was able to catch some amazing waves. Kevin gave me some great pointers during some lessons and also took some awesome photographs of me catching waves. My girlfriend, who is a novice, learned...

Just spent a week at Soma. Everything went smoothly from pre-booking emails with Casey to our return ride to the airport. The property is beautiful, in a great setting with awesome views of the surrounding countryside. The food is great. We tried just about everything on the menu over the week. I had a great time surfing with Kevin's help....

Just had a dinner at Soma and the food was amazing. Just got to Popoyo and was looking for a good place to eat and we're lucky enough to find this incredible place. All dishes were brilliantly prepared and extremely tasty. We will for sure go back, most likely tomorrow:). Also spoke with the owners as well as staff, who...

If you're considering Soma / visiting Nicaragua in general, do not hesitate and book at Soma. The resort is beautiful and captures the essence and vibe of being in Nicaragua while being on a luxury property; the crazy amazing views and resort architecture, you won't want to leave. I personally do not surf and still had an amazing time. The...
