  • What a vacation!!

    "My family of 6 (four boys ages 3-8) just had an amazing week in Nicaragua!! The home is wonderful - right on the beach and has a great size pool. The property is clean and safe. We just loved Luis and Lesbia!!! The boys were never bored - digging in the sand, jumping in the waves, collecting shells and sand dollars, swimming in the pool, naps in the hammocks, eating Lesbia's wonderful cooking, riding ATVs with Luis down the beach, horse back riding, running into town to buy fresh fish, building a bond fires at night or trying to climb the palm trees for cocos!! The beach is almost empty and the sunsets are amazing! Jamie was very kind and easy to work with. Luis took us to two different days trips and really showed us around. We brought clothes and school supplies and were able to distribute them at the local school. Looking for a special vacation - this is your spot! Hope to return next year!"

  • Really enjoyed our stay!

    "We loved feeling like we were in the middle of all this rural life-the pigs sauntering by early morning, the chickens (maybe not the roosters), the cows and their caballeros on the beach and in the water. The caretakers, their children and dogs were so sweet. Karla made us a delicious meal one night and came back the next night to teach us how to make her delicious tostones. The house is basic but very functional and comfortable and has a lovely view and setting. It was nice to have bikes to ride and the bus stop is close though I wouldn't have minded having a car for a day or two for more exploring. Actually I could have used another day or two just to sit on the back porch and enjoy the view and the sound of urraka birds and the wind in the trees."

  • Best view on big Corn island

    "We absolutely loved this beautiful island as well as our choice of accommodations. You cant beat the view from the property and the privacy of your own beach and hammock to lie and read a book or go for a swim. No one will bother you and you can completely relax. Kathy and Don were very accommodating by helping us find where things were located on the island and providing fresh drinking water daily. There are dogs living on this property but they are extremely friendly and we especially loved Sweeny who was always up for a scratch on the head. The place is extremely secure with a night watchman and a safe inside the condo The condo itself was basic but had enough for our needs during our stay. Stove top for cooking, fridge, shower and a double bed. The balcony had comfortable loungers and a table and chairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this beautiful and friendly little island. It truly felt like paradise. Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing and enjoyable. It was just what we needed after a busy few months prior."

  • Granada Paradise!

    "My husband, two kids (15 and 11) and I stayed at Hotel Xalteva for a week. We travel a great deal and we're extremely adventurous. We came to Granda to go volcano boarding and chose Granada as our home base. Our experience at Hotel Xalteva was absolutely amazing! I can't rave about it more. The location is in the middle of Granda, but you're encapsulated in an oasis of beauty! The hotel staff is first class. To say they're helpful, is a huge understatement. The continental breakfast under the pergola is divine and includes an assortment of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cakes, bread, fresh juice and coffee. It's perfection! The condos are impeccably clean and I'm picky! The condos are laid out well, beautiful, clean and have everything you need. I highly suggest arranging a home cooked meal brought in. The mother-in-law of Melissa, the manager, is am amazing cook. She made us rice, plantains, beans, pice de gallo, chicken, potatoes and carrots. We feasted on that for days! Shear heaven and perfect for us because our kids get sick of eating out. To reiterate, the staff (Melissa, Tania, Anna, Louis, etc.) are top notch. If you need anything, they will get it for you or make it happen. The pool is fantastic! I heard it's the best pool in Granada and I believe it. There's a guard at night who closes the doors at 8:30PM. You can ring the bell to get in. in other words, it's completely secure. You can easily walk to town, restaurants, the market, etc. I always felt safe in Nicaragua and we traveled to Leon, San Juan Del Sur, throughout Managua, Apoyo Lagoon, Mombacho and more. My 15 year old daughter declared this her favorite trip ever and that's saying a lot. A great deal of that has to do with Hotel Xalteva. If you're considering Nicaragua, you must stay here even if just for a few nights. I would like to be here for months! I can't wait to go back someday. One last thing-Melissa arranged for us to tour a school in the Islets. Amazing experience! That afternoon, my daughter and I did some shopping for items the director told us they need. Ezequiel, a friend to Hotel Xalteva, helped us get to the correct stores. Hotel Xalteva made everything easy and wonderful! I may cry when I leave. Before we even booked Hotel Xalteva, I spoke to Jay, the owner, and corresponded with him via email. He's very prompt with responding and couldn't have been more friendly. The entire experience was pure heaven and joy!"
