Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • fantastic

    "When my kids walked through the house and glimpsed the ocean, in unison they exclaimed - "this is awesome". Seven days later we left with the same sentiment - and a collective desire to return. Roger was great, as we asked nuance questions of where we could find things which were off the beaten path, or where to get a flat tire fixed, or where we could finds locally caught fish. We all surfed, ate fresh fruit, sat in the sun and enjoyed ourselves. We will most certainly be back - and would recommend both Nicaragua and this location to anyone."

  • Stay in the "wild" just 30min away from Managua

    "We had a great time in the villa. If anything, the description and pictures do not do justice to the amazing views and scenery of this vacation rental. Just 30 minutes away from the city, you can enjoy the diverse biosphere while staying close to all modern necessities. This villa is part of a complex nestled in the forest range overlooking the city of Managua. The property has a great panoramic view of the city, forest and lake, and you can enjoy quiet walks in the surrounding forest. The villa is situated in a large property that hosts one of the best restaurants in the Managua area, so if you don't feel like cooking dinner, just walk over to the restaurant for a great meal, a wonderful atmosphere and amazing views. The area has many attractions, and the house is conveniently located to access them. The host Javier and his staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Besides the obvious support with the house he was super helpful in other ways. We needed some urgent car maintenance and he organized for a mechanic to come and help."

  • What an amazing place!

    "I just got back from staying here for a week and it was fantastic. The views were far reaching and one could clearly see Playa Santana and Mag Rock from the back patio. The pool and rooms were clean. I liked that it felt secluded, but was so close to all of the amenities of Rancho Santana. It's nice being able to be the first to ride Santana every morning. I would recommend having your own wheels for this location. I'll be staying there again soon!"

  • 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!"
