Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • Beautiful space in a beautiful town

    "Our family of 6 stayed at Casa Gallo for a short get-away. It was everything the pictures and reviews seem. Beautiful space and wonderful host (Jose and Maria Elena). Clean and quiet. We loved the city of Granada, but had trouble even leaving the paradise of the house because it was so relaxing and tranquil just to spend time in the open air kitchen/dining room, the open court yard, the balcony with the view and the wonderful pool. This is a great space for our family of teenage and adult children, but I think it would also make a great space for a friends get-away, or families with small children. Other details: WIFI was strong and reliable, air conditioning is perfect for the Granada heat and sun, and you are in walking distance of many delicious cafes, restaurants and shopping in Granada (although it's great to have the option to cook in the large kitchen at the house--stock up on supplies a La Colonial or Union right down the road. We didn't have Maria Elena cook for us, but after 6+ months of living here in Nicaragua I can tell you that Nica food is delicious and I am sure Maria Elena makes some great Gallo Pinto--so I would recommend that, as well, even though we didn't take advantage of that option). Highly recommend this home. Richard is great at getting back to guests about questions before the trip (thanks!) and Jose is a great source of information at the house and in town. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back."

  • Stunning

    "We spent an unforgettable month in San Juan del Sur and it was mainly due to the wonderful accommodations at Casa Mari and the people we met. Maritza was excellent with her correspondence and everything went without a hitch. The home is beautiful and well taken care of. Maria is a very efficient and a lovely person. Raul is helpful with anything that needs taking care of. They made the stay extremely comfortable. It's just a short walk to any part of town. The swimming pool at the house is a wonderful way to spend the heat of the day. There are suites on the bottom floor of the home but are separate"

  • Paradise in the jungle!

    "In the words of Axle Rose, "Welcome to the jungle!" Except the only screaming we heard was from the howler monkeys that came right up to the back balcony of the house and "hung out" with us over dinner (this seriously happened on night three)! Our two young girls (ages 5 and 7) were overjoyed when the monkeys just watched us as they munched on leaves and crashed around on the branches! This place may be in the jungle, but it's an idyllic getaway for young families, or couples. We were a short walk to the common pool (100 yards away) where our kids loved to swim while overlooking the jungle canopy down the hillside! Don't believe the exaggerated reviews of the bugs in the pool. We were staying there a couple weeks later than one reviewer and had a blast in the pool. The ground-keeping guy was excellent and cleaned the pool every day (despite bugs in the jungle, it was super-clean)! The pool is long enough for some laps, while the kids were able to work on their swimming skills (the deepest part is only four feet)! In general, we were so impressed with how clean and well-maintained the grounds were. The house itself is gorgeous! The design is incredibly well adapted to the environment in which it's situated. Coming to Nicaragua from a cooler North American climate, we were expecting to be hot at night in a place that doesn't have air conditioning (the house is made up of an open screen system). However, much to our surprise, the cool evening breezes combined with some well placed fans kept us very comfortable each evening! The fully-functional kitchen was excellent, and we were able to make use of the bbq to grill fresh seafood we bought from the SJDS fish market! Each evening we ate while watching the beautiful Nicaraguan sun set on the ocean horizon below the jungle-covered mountains! The beach was a short drive away, but go at low tide. The Balcones property manager, Gabby, was so helpful when we arrived and frequently checked in on us! She warned us that sometimes we might see scorpions or tarantulas in the house, but we quickly realized that the reason for this is they are often looking for an open door. We just made sure the sliding doors were closed and we never had anything to worry about! Don't get me wrong, you'll see these cool creatures around the property (after all, you are in the jungle baby!), but there's nothing to worry about! The most interesting insect we saw in the house was a six-inch long Praying Mantis on the bug net. Cool!"

  • Paradise to be experienced

    "After 3 weeks of paradise, one does not want to go back. This is how we felt at Mar y Sol Beach House in Playa Remanso. After the very warm greeting by the staff, Flor and Francisco, we were lead to this beautiful house that has anything that you might need on your vacation. Comfortable beds, comfortable outside furniture, fully equipped kitchen and great outside living space. From the sunrise to the sunset, life in Remanso Beach is great. Coffee on the beach in the morning and good drink on the beach at night. What a life. Flor and Francisco are great companion and are very helpful, even in learning Spanish. Two taco bars on the beach can eliminate your cooking problem or like we did few times, we asked Flor to cook for us. She is really a great cook and meal was fantastic. We hope to go back to Mar y Sol next year for a few weeks. I would recommend this place to anyone.Dealing with the host/Margaret was a pleasure. Everything she said and more turned out to be a great vacation."
