Ricardo picked us up from the airport on time and professional. We spent 4 nights there for my husbands 30th birthday. Make sure you stop at the market before you head into the villa since it is secluded. Villa tortuga is magical. We would surf or fish during the day and cook at night on the back deck while monkeys...

We recently travelled to Nicaragua for a girls trip (late 20's) and spent a couple of nights at Villas Playa Maderas. I cannot say how incredible our experience was at the Villas. The accommodations themselves (we stayed at Villa Colibris) were clean, spacious and surpassed our expectations. The management team was great; helpful on arrival as well as whenever we...

The location is amazing, the staff are so helpful and always available if you need them. We cooked our own meals but when we wanted to go out there are plenty of simple places within walking distance. Amazing pool, too.

This is our favourite place to stay in the Playa Maderas area when looking for some chill time. This past January, 6 of us friends stayed in Villa Palmera & Villa Colibrí. It was amazing! Having the pool right there overlooking the ocean and sunsets you really can't find a better spot to relax. Just a short walk to the...

My daughter, her wife and I stayed in the Colibri Villa for a total of four nights. I wish it had been 400 nights. It was one of the most beautiful experiences in all of my travels. The villa and the infinity pool had the most awesome view of the beach and the ocean - especially at sunset time. There...

Ricardo was a nice guy and very useful throughout our booking process and even the stay. The villa was as beautiful as the pictures showed and the staff were as competent as we had read on here. The view is incredible and playa maderas is only a short walk from the villa. To get to anywhere else, a 4X4 is...

I visited NICA with 2 buddies from college and Ricardo, the owner of the villas, hooked us up. The villa we stayed in (#3, Mariposa) had an unbelievable view of the surf/ocean and was a 5 minute walk from Playa Maderas beach where there are restaurants/bars/surf rental. Additionally, both the villas operating team and playa maderas offered numerous shuttles/taxi services...

My boyfriend has been coming to Maderas for years and always stays here. I had the time of my life when he brought me this past NYE for 5 days. The views, the pool, the house, the staff- all amazing. The beach is about a 5 minute drive down the rode but you will be happy to be high up-...

I typically do not write reviews on my favorite vacation spots because selfishly, i do not want anybody to know about them!!! But Villas at Playa Maderas deserves my review. This spring was our family's second time returning to the same villa. We also invited 4 other families from Telluride to meet us there. Aside from the obvious...beautiful property, outstanding...
