  • A Piece of Paradise!

    "We arrived just after dark to the cacophony of Howler Monkeys...what a welcome! This property is in a spectacular location. Can you imagine waking up and sitting in the tree canopy on the deck with the ocean view, all we could say was wow! The beach, restaurant and bar owned and operated by the Aqua Resort was fabulous and their staff so friendly and professional. You will certainly get your exercise while you are here and we were so eager to participate. The hills and the stairs were a welcome activity. Also to have access to the yoga classes on the special platform overlooking Redonda Bay was Amazing. We shopped local and cooked and enjoyed some delicious meals. Security was second to none. We will definitely return. Thanks Ron and Carolyn"

  • Wonderful house, perfect distance from town

    "This is a beautiful property, kept spotless by the caretakers. The owners have invested in nice furniture, dishes and linens; a pleasant surprise in Nicaragua. . The views are stunning and the pool was the perfect way to play away an afternoon. The location is the perfect place if you want the quiet of the wilderness but still have easy access to town. It was 5-10 min drive to town depending on congestion. The beds are extremely firm like all mattresses in Nicaragua. The house is high on the hill, so it catches the breezes easily and on most nights the air conditioning is not necessary, Having the option was a nice perk on muggy nights. My only wish is that there were a screen to pull at night to keep out the stray cats and minimize the critters. After dark the living area was not enjoyable because of all the insects attracted to the lights. We will 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."

  • Rio Dulce- Perfect Place to Stay to Surf/Golf

    "I recently (July of 2016) rented a condo unit in Rio Dulce from Grant at Iguana Surf Rentals and he set up everything to down to the last details and made our trip effortless. He greeted us upon arrival, helped book a few day trips for us, and knows where to eat/what to do if the surf is smaller. He went above and beyond and I can't recommend him enough to anyone planning a trip to Playa Colorado's. Thanks again Grant."
