The amenities, dining, activities, employees and atmosphere seamlessly adapt to the type of vacation you want to have. My friend and I went for an adventure and that's exactly what got it! Surf lessons, excursion to the volcano and horse back riding, all organized beautifully. Adventure not your thing? I could easily see Soma being perfect for a honeymoon/romantic trip...

Our initial intent was to relax and get back to surfing, however ill timed injuries prevented the surfing. Casey was very helpful and accommodating and we always found something to do. The resort is small but very comfortable, almost like a family compound. Rooms are VERY nice. Food is good and prices reasonable. If you surf definitely come here, very...

Awesome place, great hosts, incredible food. Came here for the surfing lessons, which were great, but loved the food, resort, pool and hammocks almost as much. The property is in great conditioned, has gorgeous landscaping and rooms, the food was incredible, and the hosts and instructors were great. One caveat - it is a 10 minute drive from the beach...

My boyfriend and I spent a little over a week at Soma in March 2015. We absolutely loved everything about this place. The all-inclusive food was incredible. All the drinks (not included but great prices) were phenomenal. We loved talking with everyone that worked there, such great personalities. Our bungalow was clean, very roomy and comfortable. There were many activities...

We stayed at Soma in early March 2015. The property is a beautiful oasis!!! The staff is super friendly and will accommodate your every need. The variety and quality of food is incredible. While we were at Soma we did early morning yoga and a trek on the beach and two days of surfing. We enjoyed every moment of our...

We stayed at Soma in February 2015 and there are not enough words to express how we feel about this place. From the pick up at the airport (thank you Max) to the hospitality shown by Casey and Bill, everything exceeded our expectations. We had no luggage for two days (thank you American Air) but everyone came together (including other...

One of the best places I've ever stayed. The views were breathtaking. Casey got me to feel instantly at home. Soma has found the harmonious balance of being elegant and laid back in the same breath. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfy I wanted to take it home with me...along with Bills surfboard...He has a great...

We stayed at Soma back in November and had such an amazing time. Casey and Bill and all the extremely friendly and gracious staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and make our holiday experience the best it could be. They are truly fabulous hosts and you feel like you are being welcomed as part of the family...

Soma is a little more expensive than other accommodation options around popoyo/san juan del sur but you get what you pay for. It's a small and relatively intimate place. The rooms are very nicely appointed, the pool is nice, and the food was the best I had in Nicaragua. The only downside is that it's not on the beach so,...

I could not have had a more relaxing, energizing, peaceful time during my week stay at Soma. After reading so many reviews I was certain Soma would be a wonderful place to stay, but I was concerned I might get lonely or restless as I was traveling alone. About 10 mins into my stay, I realized I had nothing to...
