We just returned from Barcelo Montelimar Beach in Nicaragua. We took our whole family. It was truly beautiful, clean and the staff was just wonderful. It was extremely safe. It is not a 5 star hotel, quite primitve in the rooms but they were clean and roomy. Some bathrooms in the bungleows have been redone. The beauty around makes up... More

If you are ready for a vacation with miles and miles of deserted beaches lined with hammocks in the shade, this is the spot for you. We visited the Barcelo in late May 2007; this is the rainy season but we only experienced one late afternoon shower that cut short our beach time. But who cared--the bungalow had a hammock... More

My family and I traveled in January 2007, we had heard great things about Hotel Barcelo Montelimar and I have to say it was worth it. Our experience was great, we loved the service, the bungalow we stayed at, the great atmosphere... More

Nicaragua is somewhat of a different vacation destination for a variety of reasons. To our knowledge, there is currently only one all inclusive resort (Montelimar) and Montreal (Quebec) is the only departure point offering an all-inclusive package. During our trip, we encountered several American citizens using direct flights from Atlanta and Miami. Conversations with them suggest they negotiated the hotel... More

We went to Montelimar at the beginning of 2007. We were a group of ten people, we decided to go to the bungalows... They are very spacious and clean. The service is above average, friendly and polite. My kids loved the monitors, I enjoyed the aerobics and salsa dance sessions by the pool. The beach is outstanding, you will appreciate... More
