Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • Overall good time!

    "This property is really nice! Very clean and right on the beach. The pool is great as well. As someone who didn't know much about Nicaragua before arriving, I just wanted to comment that Hacienda Iguana is a resort village and there is really not much inside of it. You'll need to rent a car if you want to go explore anywhere else or to go to town to get groceries to cook. It's really a place for relaxing by the pool and surfing the massive waves. The owner is great at helping organize rides however you can definitely find cheaper ones if you just ask around (we were going to pay $150 USD for 5 people to San Juan Del Sur and ended up paying $60 USD). Overall had a great stay here though, really relaxing!"

  • Great space and location for two couples.

    "House is attractive, with nice artistic touches. Works well for two couples (each couple has private bath, comfortable bed, and enough space). Bed linens were in good shape, decent towels. WiFi worked well, nice big table, love seat and couch comfortable. Kitchen is small, but adequate for breakfasts, snacks and simple cooking. Lots of good restaurant options in Granada, so this was fine. Loved the plunge pool when we came home tired and hot. Location was good - close to groceries, market, restaurants, yoga... We would come back."

  • Overall - a good vacation!

    "Overall, we loved our time in SJDS. The house is in a good location, just a short ride outside of town (we had rented a 4 wheel drive pickup - which I'd recommend). It was a good size for our family of 5, and we really enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the hammocks. The house is also near very nice beaches and local zip line attractions. There were a few things we were surprised by, but they weren't really the fault of the house. For example, we were without power in the house almost every night. It wasn't related to the house, but it would have been nice to know that this happens. Not only is it quite hot at night, but the air conditioners in the bedrooms also help to mask the dogs barking, roosters crowing, or horns honking. I don't know if power outages occur that regularly, but they did the week we were there (one for about 11 hours). A suggestion we'd give would be to provide a cell phone and internet service for an additional fee. A cell phone is provided upon arrival, but it worked sporadically (and ultimately not at all) and I ended up using my own in order to get a hold of the property manager. Internet is also provided, but it requires a trip into town in order to provide a router number, purchase airtime, etc. We tried on a couple of different occasions, but were never successful in getting wifi. Again, not the end of the world (it was actually nice to be disconnected) - just a suggestion that we'd have been willing to pay more to have this set up. Also, there is a care taker on site which can throw you off a bit at first, but we really appreciated having him there. He was very nice, very helpful, and we appreciated his service. Overall, we really enjoyed staying here. It was a very private location, a nice house, and and it provided our family with a vacation we are sure to not forget. We would definitely consider staying here again if we visit SJDS in the future."

  • Luxurious Escape

    "I have traveled quite a bit of the world and never have we experienced such personalized service. Not only is this home exquisite with a prime location on a pristine beach, the staff is 5 stars and the concierge service is second to none. We went so our husbands could surf and found a resort playground for the wives. Massage and horses delivered to the house, personalized tours to experience the country, and the most amazing housekeeping ever. 3 days in my husband asked me if they were washing his clothes as they were all mysteriously clean. They were! David and James did an amazing job fulfilling my every whim and doing it with a first class touch. We even had a misconnection on our flights with our friends. A quick email and David made arrangements to pick them up at a later time. When we arrived at the house it was stocked with everything we requested and Cecelia had the most amazing appetizers waiting for us. Please understand, I not only am a foodie but I work in the food industry around some of the best chefs in the world. Cecelia is right there with the best! She prepared beautiful balanced breakfasts at any requested time every day (request the Pitaya juice!) One day when we decided to be lazy she grilled a beautiful pork tenderloin for lunch. And dinner....dinner was always a gourmet treat. One evening she seared off a center cut beef tenderloin perfectly medium rare. It was beautiful and a great display of her culinary expertise. Cecelia we miss you every day! For surfers, Panga drops is directly in front of the house and is always good. Colorados down the beach is excellent as well but crowded. Definitely go to Pilis for the watermelon Mojito...you're welcome. NSR surf shop delivered and picked up our boards from the house so they were waiting for us upon arrival. I organize trips around the world for myself and a group of friends. This was by far the easiest process with the most glowing results I have experienced yet. The house is amazing, the service makes it even better. Bravo N360!"
