My wife and I were looking for something different and get disconnected from the noise of the cities. We found Norome and since we went into the lobby we knew this was exaclty what we were looking. Great service, excellent food, good privacy and the view of the "Laguna" from the swimming pool. It is excellent and relaxing. I recomend...

Hi! All the teachers at Pierre and Marie Curie Universal School were invited to participate in a back-to-school camping trip just for teachers. We were located in 3 luxury villas at the entrance, 8 teachers at each Villa. It was a wonderful experience! The Villas are HUGE, the kitchen has everything. We made our own carne asada, while the music...

Our party of 4 adults and 3 teenagers enjoyed our 2 nights at this great place very much. We had a big, lovely, comfortable villa at the very top of the resort. The top part of the resort has a lovely little pool with the most amazingly beautiful view of the lake down below. The flora and the fauna surrounding...

The Villas are a great destination for adventure travelers. The villas are positioned in a rain forest on a beautiful volcanic lake. You wake up to monkeys howling in the trees and to the sun rising over the laguna! You can hike from here to Caterina or do day trips and come back and enjoy a dip in the lake....

The Laguna de Apoyo has to be one of the most spectacular places in all of Nicaragua and your appreciation of it is of course,, deeply appreciated! Our resort has gone through some incredible changes over the last few years. From its inaugural opening in 2006 until the closure in July, 2008 only two short years later, the hotel was...

What a surprise, in the middle of nowhere we found ourselves a little jewel! Our villas were truly on a mountainside with the most amazing views. The lake was magic and you could pick up pumice stones right on the beach. There were 8 of us traveling Nicaragua and this is one stop that gave us time to decompress, enjoy...

Thank you for your acknowledgement! The Villas have gone through a tremendous change in the last few years with new managment, renovations and a completely different concept .

we stayed in the villas one night during semana santa week and it was so relaxing! The new grill/restaurant was open for business and the food, drinks and service were excellent. There were monkeys all around and the villas were clean and very comfortable.

I brought a group of 34 people to the Villas a few weeks ago and was extremely disappointed with the poor service. The place is beautiful in it's natural beauty and the Laguna is certainly worth a day trip, but the hospitality was totally lacking. We were treated like criminals as they counted every spoon and fork before we were...

We enjoyed Villa # 113 for a few nights. These are apparently individually owned condominiums. The villa we rented was nicely renovated and had beautiful views and was comfortable. Some of the other villas appeared to be in good condition or in various stages of renovation or in need of renovation. The howler monkeys were very interesting and the small,...
