This property was the highlight of my trip to Nicaragua. Beautiful property with a picturesque landscape and excellent hospitality given by the staff members(chefs, spa therapist, helpers, staff at the reception). I planned to spend 1 night but ended up spending 2 nights. Peaceful & Serene. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

You will have two experiences in one on Aqua, houses around the mountain and the forest, and the beach when you walk down. It is an incredible experience, staff is really kind, beach is not that far from walking distances and you have a bar in there. Thanks for the hospitality.

My time at Aqua Wellness Resort, was fantastically blissful. I went for my honeymoon. I didn't tell my wife where we were going and just let the surprise unfold. She was BLOWN AWAY. When we landed at the airport, the driver they sent was waiting with my name on a sign. He was very friendly and helpful and let us stop at the grocery store on the way there. It was a very, very nice and clean grocery store that outdid many American grocery stores I've been to. When we arrived, we were greeted by Johnny who was super helpful and gave me his WhatsApp number. My entire time there he was prompt and reliable to answer any questions or help me with anything I needed. He even went above and beyond to make the trip extra special for my wife and I. Moreover, every staff member was friendly and helpful and willing to do anything to assist (even if it wasn't their job). We had the Sapote LS suite and it was world-class. A small, private, infinite pool overlooking the ocean, a rustic wooden shower area, decent bed and couch, and a patio. Good air-conditioning as well. It also came with a detached kitchen with materials to cook most things. No microwave though. My wife made multiple excellent meals with the materials they had The beach was clean and the hotel maintains a small beach bar for drinks and food. This trip was everything I'd dreamed it would be and made a lifetime memory for my wife and I. We felt fully safe and would return in a heartbeat.
