I stayed two days at Omaja Hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. The service provided by the staff was impecable and attentive. The view from the pool breathtaking. The owner replies quickly to consumer concerns, takes responsibility and fixes misunderstandings. I highly recomend it.

We stayed here for 4 nights & we're really glad we did. The pool with heated spa at night and amazing views across the lake and volcano, was a fantastic place to cool off and chill out. The location, high up on a hillside, provides great views & breezes; whereas the places we had stopped at on the lake's edge...

My wife and I stayed here for two days at the end of October. The actual hotel is quite picturesque - nice swimming pool, open air restaurant and cabins overlooking lake Nicaragua. However, the hotel is quite isolated, its at least a half hour taxi to the nearest town *which costs $15) on very rough roads - the east side...

Thank you for your comments, I do feel like we did you an injustice in not canceling your reservation. We were supposed to have been back from our vacation and open several days before your arrival but due to some logistical problems in Managua we did not arrive until the day before you did and as you suggest we were...

Wow, what a spectacular view. And a perfect pool. And such lovely cabins to boot! We were the first guests of the season. We felt extremely pampered by the attentive staff and welcomed by Jaime and his wife and family to their lovely home. It's quite a (30-45 minute off the main road 4wd) ride to get here but Jaime...

This review is a bit late- 2 years old actually. My husband and I spent 3 nights here over Christmastime 2012. We can't wait to go back. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view was unmatched, especially from the infinity pool! Our only negative was that our room was VERY hot because the power kept going out on the...

This was such a wonderful place to stay on Ometepe! Jamie and his wife are such lovely people!

Great place to stay in. Great view of the lake and the sunsets. Rooms (cabins), scattered through the property, are large and clean with varanda's over the lake with chairs and hamac. Nice showers. Since you are in an island in a remote place, do expect animals to be around. Bumpy road to get there. Remote location. Very peaceful and...

Its pretty far from the main hub on Ometepe, which is mostly good. The roads are not great to get here, but its very quiet and the views of Conception and the lake are great.
