Relaxing and tranquil getaway. Set among beautiful beaches and pristine landscape, Soma Surf offers luxury accommodations, first class service, and fantastic food at very affordable prices. It’s by the far the best place for the money anywhere along the Emerald Coast. The owners and staff take amazing care of their guests and truly make you feel at home. I will...

Hola Raygan, Thank you for your review. We loved having both you and Douglas stay with us here at Soma. It is always a great feeling to be able to give our guests a memorable experience and know they left feeling relaxed, happy and with a better understanding of the Nicaraguan culture. Thank you again for choosing Soma Surf Resort...

Beyond being in a surfers paradise Soma Surf Resort is amazing and beautiful. From every angle it looks like a page from architectural digest. Incredibly designed, decorated, and naturally landscaped on top of a high elevation where you can see the ocean and lush vegetation of the hill side. It is a small resort that clearly chose quality over quantity....

Cons: if you're there to surf, they will drop you off once a day at the most crowded break (popoyo) no matter the tide or conditions and they might or might not pick you back up. One evening I actually had to walk 15 min in the dark to find a bar that was gracious enough to call them to...

One for beginners who are looking for a lot of hands on and daily lessons, one for intermediates who need guiding and feedback on getting to that next level and one for advanced...

SOMA is a beautifully designed surf resort with thought and care in the details. You can relax in simple luxury, eat delicious food, and access some of the best breaks in Nicaragua. Popoyo is an undeveloped community and during the last 1.5 hours from the Pan American highway you will travel on a dirt road. It's worth the trouble to...

We had bought a accomodation and meals package for a 5 night stay in Nicaragua. The Soma property is gorgeous. Beautiful location and tastefully done. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The meals were wonderful, fresh, healthy and locally sourced as much as possible. The staff and owners (Bill and Casey) were friendly and helpful beyond the call of...

Soma is a beautifully appointed, comfortable and lovely boutique resort. We stayed in room #4, with 3 twin beds (two pushed together for my husband & me plus one for our teenage daughter), plenty of room and a spacious bathroom. The beds were super comfy and the A/C and ceiling fan worked perfectly to keep us cool in the Nicaraguan...

We had the entire resort to ourselves when we stayed for a week. The resort is in a remote part of the country and we really enjoyed the isolation. The bungalow was huge with a wonderful shower and bathroom. We could access Wifi from our room. The food was excellent and the kitchen staff were very accommodating for my picky...

Let's start with rooms: they are huge and comfortable, especially in the bungalows, and spotless clean. The pool area, breakfast room and dinner room are equally inviting. The photos do not do enough justice for the resort area. The best part of Soma is the service. As the resort is very small the service is very personal and all your...
