We didn't stay as guests but ate at the resturant. Terrible food. Over priced. Slow service. Canadian owned business should know how to cook a burger and fries even the "typical" food was mediocre and flavourless. Expensive for what you got. And the grounds were dirty and unkept Pool looked funky

By the look of the pool we should have known that our meal would be substandard. They did have a sign out front looking for a cook... maybe that was the issue. We came for breakfast and both ordered coffee and the egg burritos. Coffee was instant coffe and only luke warm. The meal took over 20 mins to arrive... More

I stayed here and drank here but I did not eat. Prices were fair and rooms were good and it is right on the beach. It is a pretty good walk to "town" and other restaurants. They could put a bit more effort into the water pressure and the swimming pool.

The food was great, but they did run out of supplies regularly, so what was on the menu wasn't always available.

We came in for a late lunch and there was only one other table in the place. No one came to our table so we went to the bar to order our food and drinks. We ordered fruit juice, a coffee and some tuna sandwiches. We waited 55 minutes for the tuna sandwiches and 65 minutes for the juice. The... More

Great food, cold beer - right on the sand. Very good place to enjoy friends, time, and food. If you are in a hurry discuss it with staff - before you get anxious.

We ate here but didn't stay. My sister was staying here so we used their shower after a swim. There was almost no water and no pressure so I'm not sure what was going on there. The pool either needs a good scrubbing or it needs to be repainted as it was a little scary looking. It's a shame because... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my daughter and liked it so much I returned a few weeks later alone for a week. Rooms may be small but are actually each a separate little bungalow. After the foam rubber mattress in the hotel we used the night before it was luxury to have a solid North American mattress.... More

Great view of the ocean, nice people that own it, beautiful pool that is open during the summer but the prices are expensive for Nicaragua
