Nicaragua is a beautiful country and being able to stay in such a nice hotel was definitely a plus. Despite the news, we felt completely safe while we were there. The staff goes out of their way so make you feel welcome and meet any need. The bed is orthopedic and the room is so comfortable that we slept better there than at home! The breakfast is plentiful, healthy, and delicious… no matter what you choose on the menu. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else now.
