Pros: Cool hostel... Workers are good...
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Carlos, the owner of this hostel is a really nice guy, offering a helping hand to any question or problem you have while staying in Moyogalpa. Really good breakfast!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This was a great little property, the place was immaculately clean, the couple who owned the place were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was also delicious. I would definitely recommend staying here. The only thing I would say is the night we stayed it was extremely hot and the fans in the rooms were too small and not very strong which made it hard to cool the room down.
10.0 Excellent

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly owners, it’s all clean and the big pancake for breakfast comes with a lot of fruits and honey. Very comfortable hammocks. Fan right above the bed. At the moment there’s no common kitchen, we were allowed to boil our eggs in their kitchen though, as we didn’t know that and bought eggs in advance.
Cons: No common kitchen, they offer meals though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We booked it because of the price and the comments they have and we did well ! The location is very good and what could we say about the owners ! They are amazing ! Infinitely kind ! It’s an owned family place and we feel it. They are always here if you need anything ! The breakfast is very good , one big pancakes (equal 3 small ones ) and honey with fresh season fruits and coffee or traditional breakfast but we didn’t try it! They can help you with tours or motorcycle rentals because they have a partnership with an agency ( delivery of the motorcycle, helping you to check it and etc...) For example we had rented bicycles for 24h and they proposed us to put them inside the hostel and lock them to be sure we will not have any problem even if we didn’t book the bikes with them. One morning she saw that I don’t Iike watermelon and papaya, the next day she remembered it and ask me if I wanted anything else. While cleaning the room she found wet clothes and let them dry outside then folded them and put them back in the room, we were amazed and felt details from a 5 stars hotel. She advised us a very good restaurant ( fresh food and low prices ) Carlos is very funny ! The kids are so nice and the dog too ! Definitely come back to Ometepe and at this place !
Cons: Nothing ! We loved everything !

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were EXTREMELY kind and made sure to make us as comfortable as possible! They were attentive and wanted to accomodate us! They even went and bought a bottle of Tequila because I requested it! Nioscar is the manager of the hotel and the villas has only been running for 2 months.. I can only say I was impressed. The place was clean, had a late open bar and the bigggest pool on the island. Eddy behind the bar, Gabriel and his litte monkey Paco as well as the ladies in the kitchen and Alexandra (Nioscar's daughter) made us appreciate Ometepe that much more! We enjoyed the food, the drinks and our little cozy cabanas!!
Cons: A bit far from all the sites of attraction, but if you can find a way around it's worth coming back to. We rented a quad which was great but the price wad high and we were given time frames when initally the deal was for the day. The whole deal wasn't clear.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: New, clean, very quiet, excellent food, great service, and a fun pool. The port of San Jose is within walking distance (along the beach). The staff went out of their way to accommodate us, even giving us personal tours. Great value!
Cons: It is slightly off the main road and a bit of a drive to the main attractions.
8.0 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location next to lake, surrounded by trees and birdlife, was excellent. Lovely new swimming pool installed, with fantastic view of volcano. We were pleased we chose a lake view cabin, and were given an upstairs room with balcony. All rooms though basic inside had either private patio or balcony; beds were comfortable. Contrary to other reviews, we encountered NO insects of any kind (February), and rooms had window nets to keep any potential insects out! Air-con failed but we were immediately transferred to a comparable room. Food in restaurant was very good and staff were friendly and charming. Easy 8 minute walk to main road for irregular buses and passing taxis to other island attractions.

5.5 Okay
Pros: Room was large and clean.
Cons: The hotel was 1.4km from the main road so had to hire transport or get taxi to do anything. First day we were told the restaurant was open 07:00 - 18:00 but the staff wanted to work 08:00 - 17:00 and was a real uphill battle to get a breakfast early or a dinner after 17:00. The prices of the drinks (hot and alcoholic) were extremely high compared to all other places we went to in Nicaragua. They also only have overpriced 500ml bottles of water. No free drinking water.
7.0 Good
Pros: Good size room with excellent shower and good TV options, a nice thing because the property is some way from the road and dinner finishes early.
Cons: Nothing. It is slightly remote but so long as you know that from the outset it’s not a problem.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, helpful with supplies and transportation. Petroglyphs!!! Close to the beach if you’re into that. And good Nica food of course (breakfast included).
Cons: More paths; I kind of expected this so this could be my own hangup. Initial staff response on the first night was slow, though we did eventually get to someone.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place, very quiet, in total nature, with a beautifully pool.... Rooms are very nice, internet is efficient. The food was excellent and not too pricy, The staff was very friendly. I appreciate very much the fact that we are in a very quiet environment surrounded by nature, trees, flowers, birds....etc.... It is very relaxing.... You live in total nature The best place to stay on Isla de Ometepe.......you rent a car, scooter or motorcycle from Moyogalpa....you stay a this hotel and you can go where you want.... At night you come back to the hotel and you just relax and enjoy... It is a little paradise on a paradise island.. I recommand strongly

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Simple but very clean rooms. Nice hammocks. Very helpful staff. Complimentary breakfast.
Cons: No toiletries in the bathroom apart from hand soap (pump). There was a group of kids who kind of took over the pool after-hours with really loud music! Hopefully just a once-off!
7.5 Good
Cons: Pool area tiles could have been cleaner
5.0 Okay
Pros: Ideally located, nice pool.
Cons: Bed bugs, I saw them the last day but I had a feeling the room might have some. Room is old, dirty and smelly, stains on sheets. I know bed bugs are a common problem in hotels but the cleaningness in general is really poor. Plenty of others options in Moyogalpa at a cheaper price so don't come here. They were super happy to show me the brand new television in the room but let's face it in vacations when you are always outside it just doesn't matter.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel on Ometepe Island. Everyone very friendly and accommodating. It was very wasy to find coming off of the ferry. Great view of garden, beautiful pool
Cons: The shower did not have hot water, and there was a "sewer" smell coming from drains in shower. had to keep bathroom door shut.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Really convenient place to stay near ferry. Nice gardens and pool if needing a bit of a clean'up around it. Helpful staff and good breakfast.

7.0 Good
Pros: Perfect location for trips or early ferry. Lots of restaurants in the area. Comfy bed.
Cons: The standard of our room was not as we were hoping. Smelled moldy and AC was super old school. To be fair, after turning it on and getting the room and bed full of dust bunnies from the ac, it did do it’s job well.
