San Juan de la Isla 3*
This new hotel is located in a 160 acres farm of lush green fields, forest, streams and fruit trees, in the east part of Ometepe Island, in a stretch along the coast. The owners converted the old historic “hacienda” into a comfortable lodge, steps to the lake and beach, maintaining the hacienda’s style and atmosphere at its best. Facilities so far include 4 rooms and two cabins and a restaurant.
We like: the hotel with most character in the island, a beautiful combination between nature and history. Our preference by far in the nicer hotels in the island.
The 4 rooms and 2 cabanas are made of stones, cement and rich woods, and count with a/c, fans and private bath, hot water, one or two queen beds. The rooms share a common patio, and the cabanas have a nice private patio and a mini refrigerator. We prefer the cabañas as the rooms and their baths are a bit tiny.
Restaurant, internet service, private secure parking. Tours starting from the hotel operated with our local guides (to be arranged at booking time): volcanoes hike, cloud forest, petroglyphs tours, visit of the island, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain biking.
All tours mentioned above.
