This was my 4th time in Nicaragua and 1st in Esteli, based on other reviews I picked the Villa Riviera to relax and enjoy the mountains of Nicaragua and was very happy I did. On this trip I spent 12 days working with a non-profit in Chinadega, a very hot and nosy city and could not wait to get out....

I'm happy to say that our most recent visit to Villa Riviera confirms again that Esther's place is our favorite 'home away from home' in Esteli. As usual, her home was inviting and clean, and Esther welcomed us back with open arms and a tasty homemade breakfast. Although her home is comfortable as it is, she's always working on new...

Regarding the property: It's located in a new residential development just off the Pan American Highway. We had the room with the en suite bathroom. Very comfortable bed, enough room to spread out your things, functional bathroom...

We didn't stay with Esther but she took us on a tour: from Estelí to Miraflor, Yali, Rafael del Norte and Jinotega. But just tell her what you'd like to do and she'll take you anywhere you like. Esther is an excellent guide and speaks several languages. She told us about the surroundings but also about life in Nicaragua, which...

Esther has created a wonderful haven in the mountains, and truly provides all that you need to relax and enjoy some of Esteli's greatest assets - enjoy the beautiful weather from a relaxing hammock on the porch, head down to the city center just a few miles away, or ask Esther to take you out on a tour of all...

We had the greatest time at Esther's B&B. We spent 3 days here, but it felt like a month. It started with a friendly welcome and ended with a big hug. The breakfast is great. We had banana bread, peanut butter, yoghurt and some muesli and on top off it all: everything is homemade. The fruit is also from their...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I'm a Dutch expat who always wanted to start a B&B in another country. In 2009 I sold my house in the Netherlands, quit my job as a bank manager and bought a ticket to Ecuador. I lived there for a while,but it wasn't the place for me. I then decided to go for my second choice; Nicaragua. I arrived here in Esteli in 2011 and fell in love with the place and the people and bought a house. I'm an outgoing person who speaks English, Dutch, German and Spanish fluently. I used to speak French as well, but somehow when I learned Spanish, the French got a bit lost along the way :) It has always been my pleasure to welcome people to my house and pamper them with great atmosphere, food and drinks. Here I would like to do the same. I would like to make you feel very welcome in my B&B. Hope to see you very soon :)E ... more   less
