Family circumstances have bought us to Managua for three months and El Mirador Suites and Lounge has become our home away from home. As we struggle with a different language in a different culture, we are grateful for the friendly and helpful staff who just seem to understand us and cater for all our needs with a smile. The manager, Roger, is also the chef and we can highly recommend his deliciously healthy meals, so important during a prolonged stay. The owners, Michael and Shannon have the gift to making their guests welcome, they help with planning a tour, renting a car, shopping, or whatever else may suddenly crop up. Nothing is too much trouble, and of course we enjoy their entertaining conversations about their life back in Canada and their experiences in Nicaragua. We are very fortunate to have discovered El Mirador with its magnificent decor, amazing art works, and simply beautiful furniture. A very pleasant home away from home indeed.
