My son wanted to stay at a hotel in Managua with a great pool, so I called this place and asked them if their pool was nice to swim in. I told them I was going to drive all the way there just so my eight-year-old could swim. They assured me he would love their pool. Well ... their pool is the low point of their hotel. The water is too cold to make swimming enjoyable. The pool area is windy. They play dance club music around the pool making it loud and stressful. And then the smokers ... so we switched to the Hilton Princessa which has a fine pool with warm water. The pool at Intercontinental is more a decoration for their pretend night club than an enjoyable place to swim. I liked the staff at this hotel and found the food to be above average for Nicaragua, especially their house-made ice cream. But while in their restaurant I asked for regular water. The waiter brought me bottled. I said the hotel water was fine. He said that it was only filtered in the rooms and not the restaurant, so I had to buy bottled. I asked for a children's menu. He said the hotel did not have children's menus. In none of your three restaurants? I asked. Nope, he assured me. This was annoying. It was annoying to waste so much food, annoying that they did not have child-sized desserts, and annoying that they did not have child priced entrees. On my way out I told the front desk they should really have children's menus. They said that they do have children's menus. I asked them if the tap water in their restaurant was good to drink, and they said of course. I told them they have a waiter that lies to guests and they ... couldn't care less. That was a little disturbing. Of course, the front desk lied about the pool to get us to come in the first place, so why would they care if the waiters were lying about other things? Maybe it's hotel policy? Then the cab driver wanted 180 cords to take me down the block, insisting that it was hotel policy. Sure guy. Sure. I just did this exact route (in reverse) an hour ago. It was 70 cords with my taxi driver from the Hilton. So, they did a nice refurb in terms of the building. I loved my room! Loved the tub! They still have fine food. Their breakfast waiters were absolutely lovely to my one-year-old. But they are trying to be night-clubby instead of elegant which, well, doesn't do much for me. (If you like to see female employees in tight, short skirts, this is the place!) The lies though ... super disappointing. Is it really so hard to just be honest?…
Has a great location across the best shopping mall in Managua. The hotel is well designed with good , clean spacious rooms, great views of the lake from club lounge. Nice pool and bars , always lively with people and helpful staff. Spa needs to be improved , with a regular spa and nice rooms. Will definitely stay here the next time I come
