This is not the first time we stayed here so I can tell you with confidence that the service has declined to almost non-existent. After checking in at 2:30, we were told our room wasn鈥檛 ready and to come back. We can back at 3 and received our key. We also received a voucher for 3 pool towels and there were four of us (and to clarify, you pay per person here). The front desk would not give us a voucher for 4 so we had to plead with the towel hut staff to get the fourth towel. Upon arriving at the room, we had ONE towel in the bathroom, the refrigerator leaked water on the floor, the bathroom mirror and counter were filthy, and there were ants. We called and were told that housekeeping already left and we would have to get the towels tomorrow. 馃槻 So, we had to use our wet pool towels to shower. I booked a massage on day one and paid for it for 10:00am on day two. At 10:00 there was no one at the spa. 馃槻 The food quality has declined and most of the wait staff are far from friendly. The front desk did nothing to remedy any of this after numerous calls and visits to the front desk. Then, after the final complaint when the fourth towel still was not in the room after 3:30 on day 2, the housekeeper arrived and argued that there were four towels. After telling her the fourth towel was the only one there from the first day and it was used, she again argued that it was clean. Finally we convinced her to bring the towel. Then upon returning to the room before dinner the maintenance staff arrived saying that my husband was beating on the door and he would be reported for damage to the door. None of which happened. I have never in my life experienced such awful service and I will be telling everyone I know to steer clear of this place. We looked forward to a relaxing weekend and spent the whole time on the phone or standing at the front desk only to never be heard. The ONLY person who was kind and willing to listen was the bus driver on the property. Trust me, take your money somewhere else.

It looks like nobody from administration is taking care of the hotel business here. Its completely forgotten. I took me almost an hour to make the check-in (an there was no one in line before me!). Me bedroom was full of ants and had no hot water. Cable TV was not working appropriately and even the light went on and off continuously (probably due to national mismanagement of the electric company). Food hours were very restricted and in the restaurant they had a raven plague, if you stand up for coffee or something, you would find your food is being eaten by one of those birds. Social distancing or general measures against COVID-19 are basically nonexistent, only staff uses masks and not appropriately. I came for business for a company near the area, and they paid for the hotel. At night I spent my time working in my bedroom. However, I would have been very frustrated if I had paid their price for having vacations here with my family. PD: the ocean in Nicaragua is very nice.

My family and I decided to spend the night of Sunday, August 9, 2020, we rented 2 rooms, and since we arrived we began to present bad service, the rooms were not ready at 2pm we arrived, claiming that they had had a group of members of the Nicaraguan army the night before, however they did not tell us on our arrival and we had to wait until 4pm to checked in the room, the whorts way is that it was that the room was not completed, they needed towels, the bed was poorly arranged, the mini bar was not cooling, and the AC had a bad smell which was not pleasant, I made the claim to front desk, but they told me I had to wait 2 hours so they could give me another room, no way ... so i went to dinner and well, this was not bad, but it was not exquisite either .... when I returned to the room, I found cockroaches, one on the wall, another at the entrance of the bathroom and another under one of the beds, I felt like I was in an infested area. For a hotel 麓Resort麓, safety and hygiene measures are not being carried out, with the coronavirus pandemic, the hotel does nothing about it by requiring the mandatory use of masks in common areas, such as restaurant, bar and lobby, no appropriate precautions are being taken to prevent the virus from spreading. In addition to that, the lack of staff in the pool area, restaurant, waitresses and reception, make the service very,very poor, in the pool area it is kept dirty with used plates and glasses that guests leave in the area, and nobody remove them, at least the hotel looked at the carelessness in terms of the hygiene and the service in general of the hotel, it really sad that it is being poorly managed. IT IS NOT WORTH COMING BACK HERE !!!!

This was our third visit. We had a suite facing the beach, which we enjoyed. We again enjoyed the vast hotel grounds that were very well-kept. There were many pools to swim in and a lot of area to walk around or jog. We did not get a chance to use the gym. We mainly enjoyed the beach during the full moon night and early in the morning. We did not like the food at all this time. There was plenty of it, but it was mostly overcooked. Beer was fine, but wine was not of that good quality. I guess one cannot have it all. What really bothered us was that there was no Internet access or a reasonable English channel on TV. Yes, Nicaragua is a Spanish speaking country, but even the simplest hotel in Somoto had access to CNN. So, it was a bit disappointing. Again, we were glad we came back for a third time mostly to enjoy the spacious hotel grounds and the beach.

The hotel is supposed to best that Nicaragua has to offer but it falls very short on expectations as soon as you get to reception, from welcoming to mattresses, room decor, furniture... it is not really what you expect to get out of a resort... and my biggest thing is that description says water activities... hopefully i was referring to swimming on your own as if its for kayak, surfing tables, etc.. its non existent
