"Treehouse"-style accommodations with beautiful views, yoga (free!) every morning and evening, great drinks (highly recommend asking for banana in your pina colada). The staff went above and beyond to provide great service, and we had a peaceful and relaxing vacation.

The beach and private cove at the resort were breathtaking, and the hike up to the top of the cliff overlooking it was really amazing! The staff were super friendly and went above and beyond for us, giving us great advice on places to go around the resort and helping us with the complementary kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling equipment....

One of the best vacations I've been on in a long time. The service was impeccable, the views beautiful, and the rooms comfortable. The food and drinks were delicious, and there were plenty of opportunities for adventure such as kayaking, hiking, and surfing at a nearby beach. Tropical vacations don't get much better than this. Would highly recommend Aqua Nicaragua!

Stayed here on a group vacation -- though the location is out of the way and rustic, the rooms and dining are modern and luxurious, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend, especially for nature and outdoor sport enthusiasts.

We visited Aqua with a group of friends from home and had an all around five star experience. The location was stunning - the pictures give you a sense of what you'll see but it's even better in person. The tree houses blend well with nature while also having some of the modern luxuries we all love (AC, comfy beds,...

Dear APeterson2, I'm so glad to hear about all your adventures from what sounds like a great stay at Aqua -- you did everything from climb the rugged trail up to the top of "Pie de Gigante," and go surfing at nearby beaches, to, best of all, swimming at night when our bay was literally lit up with bioluminescent algae!...

It has always been a dream of mine to swim with bioluminescent algae, and I did it unexpectedly right on the beach here at Aqua. So cool. I loved the view from our room, and there was great swimming, kayaking, and paddleboarding. I think people complaining about the food are melodramatic—I had good meals every time I ate there, plus...

Stayed here with a group of friends! Had so much fun on the gorgeous white sand beach, playing with the free kayaks and paddleboards, and enjoying sunset swims in the lovely cove. Fantastic hiking and day trips were coordinated by resort staff, and we enjoyed good meals at the restaurant. Would 100% stay here again for the fantastic weather and...

Staying at this resort brought me a whole new lease on life. It lifted me out of a deep deep depression and made me want to live again. What a great resort. The food was some of the best I have had in all of Nicaragua. The water did not make me sick. I saw several monkeys.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aqua is a luxurious eco- and wellness resort with a private white-sand beach on Nicaragua's picturesque Emerald Coast. Guest accommodations are set in beautifully crafted Tree Houses on a wooded hillside overlooking the ocean. All have decks; some have full kitchens and outdoor plunge pools. Guests enjoy yoga classes, spa treatments and hiking, and water activities including stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and fishing. Our guides take guests for excursions to nearby colonial cities, parks and volcanoes. Aqua's open-air bar/lounge and restaurant, with its wood-burning pizza oven and menu of healthy international cuisine made with local ingredients, are directly adjacent to the beach. The lush forest that envelops Aqua is alive with spider and howler monkeys, and a wide variety of colorful tropical birds. Aqua is the perfect spot for a destination wedding, a honeymoon, an active family vacation -- or a serene getaway where you can enjoy nature and one of the most idyllic beaches in Nicaragua. ... more   less
