Morgan's Rock is a beautiful property. We stayed for four nights at the end of July. Travel: Transportation from the airport is three hours and Morgan's Rock offers transportation one way for $200. When we traveled, Adelante Express offered the same service for $110. Also, if you plan to see other areas of Nicaragua - I would recommend planning separate...

Thank you for your very thoughtful post. Just being in the private beach all to yourself is worth the trip. On vacation, ¨doing nothing¨ is one the different ways to relax. We are happy you had a great time and we hope you come back soon.

Morgan's Rock is truly special. The large, modern "tree house" bungalows perched on a cliff are spectacular, as is the suspension bridge that leads to them. The private beach down below is gorgeous, dotted with open cabanas, hammocks and coconut palms. At low tide we were able to hike the rocks around the edge of the island too, a bit...

A year after staying at Morgan's Rock, we still look back fondly on the paradise that we found. We are itching to go back and stay again. Gorgeous property, wonderful private beach, awesome food, friendly staff. The tree house style bungalows are amazing. Such a paradise.

This place is incredibly unique - however, because of the higher price, I worry that people develop very specific expectations which are hard to meet. In my opinion, here are the things you are paying for: -Bungalows that you will not want to leave - gorgeous, screened in, private, overlooking the water, you hear all the sounds of nature. I'm...

Thank you for your comments, and for being very specific about your stay. We really appreciate it. The bungalows are simply jaw-dropping and one of the best places to sit back and relax.

While June is typically rainy in this region, we were lucky to have four sunny days in a row. Perfect for enjoying the pool and gorgeous beach--which we had almost to ourselves every day. I wondered if I'd long for air conditioning, but the screened-in open air bungalows with fans kept breezes circulating effectively. Loved seeing and hearing the waves....

Thank you for your comments. We are very happy that you weren't turned away by the no AC bungalows, and glad that you mentioned that you slept well. Sleeping with the waves underneath is definitely an experience worth while. Road signs have always been a problem with the locals, but were glad you made it to Morgan´s Rock.

This hotel is overwhelmingly overrated in every regard except for the quality of the rooms. I thought that I had done my homework by reading the 2014 review in the NYT.
