Wonderful stay!

Wonderful location and staff. Unfortunately, there were not many guests due to the political issues in Nicaragua. We were treated exceptionally well!

    I was looking for the place in the world where I can take some time off from super busy time at work and family. I also could not have a vacation on the beach and have to stay away from the direct sun exposure. Pacaya Lodge is a paradise...Everything you need to relax and restore your energy is here...This place is very clean, breathtaking views gives your an opportunity to embrace YOUR time and make your mind have some rest. We had local eggs and cheese for breakfast, and mango from the garden tree for lunch... And you should try the lunch on Sunday! Staff is very helpful, all speak English, provide every possible services you need - thank you Marvin, Judy, Maria and Master Chef... There several excursions we enjoyed. Granada - you should see it with the boat trip! And if you like to swim in the lake - no problem. There is a wonderful Beach House, you will be taking there by the driver - just book it. We booked the room in the main building. But if you like to have even more privacy - take a cottage. Have the best cup of Nicaraguan coffee on the terrace in the morning watching a most beautiful sunrise, or have a romantic dinner right near the pool (when the lights are on at night - it looks spectacular). Life is beautiful when you discover places like that!

    Would stay again

    Nice little resort with amazing views. The rooms are well-appointed with AC and hot water, spacious with nice bathrooms. The included Breakfast is good, but we found the restaurant to be overpriced for lunch and dinner. Pool is nice but the hot tub was not working. We got a great massage as well.
