I have a good friend temporarily living and working in Nicaragua and we (I, spouse, college-aged son) are visiting her for a week at Christmas. She had been to the Barcelo Montilimar a few times and thought we might enjoy going there for a couple of days. When she first tried to make reservations, she was told that they were...

We were very happy with our stay at this resort. A beautiful, lush resort!! Just a note - 99% of visitors are Nicaraguans - which we loved. And be aware that the resort is remote. We had done our "touring" prior to arriving at Barcelo, so this was okay with us. There are, however, many taxis available and tour arrangements...

Normally is an excellent value for what you pay for, very clean, and gorgeous beach. My husband and I live in the country, and have been to the resort a few times, and unfortunately when there are issues, as there often are, they are not helpful. However, this last time was very disappointing, we got there, and the main pool...

Staff at the reception are rudes, the bathroom is old, water was all over the bathroom when you shower. You can have a better food in a cruise or Punta Cana Dominican Republic. Overall Next time I prefer to take a cruise or visit Punta Cana.

Just read the last review and wanted to tell about our experience in January. Beach and setting are unique, beautiful!!!! Food in the buffet was fresh and very good and the restaurant location next to the beach is so nice. The hotel is very cheap for an all inclusive in that type of location so you can not expect a...

First off, I want to start by saying that my stay at this resort was okay but not as great as I expected. As I recall, our cabina room was rather clean and we (my brother and cousin) had absolutely no issues with the room. The hotel's location is excellent. I was surprised that there were so little people on...

From the minute we arrived things went from bad to worse. First the key they gave us didn't work, no TV remote, leaky roof, broken door and cigarette smell in the room. We booked our hotel through their site and paid to have champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in the room when we arrived. Of course that didn’t happen, we...

This was my fifth trip to Nicaragua, a country I absolutely adore; but I will not stay at Montelimar ever again. We've made the two-day pit-stop to Montelimar on every trip to Nicaragua and have really seen the service and food quality deteriorate. First off, the grounds and beach are some of the most beautiful and tranquil you will find...

It was raining very heavily when I got to Nicaragua. The driver took the long way round to the hotel and so it took us 2 hours to get to the hotel. When I got there there was no proper canopy over the entrance so we got drenched trying to get into the hotel. Because it was raining so hard...

I want to start with the good things, as there aren't many. The rooms were clean, the hotel landscape it's beautiful, and the casino was ok. The bad things: Food was TERRIBLE, the website advertises 8 locations for dining and drinking (2 restaurants and 6 bars) well there is only 1 buffet area, and the bars have the cheapest alcohol...
