We enjoyed our first visit so much that we booked a second visit this year. The staff, food and views are just wonderful. We plan to return every year. Jamie's recommendation to go to the waterfall was spot on, he is knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations in the area

What a great place with an amazing view and pool. I have stayed in several hotels on the island over these past years and La Omaja is the most beautiful one.

We have just had a delightful stay at La Omaja. The location is a little off the beaten track but well worth the drive. The grounds are beautiful and the view from the bar/ dining room and infinity pool are superb. It is clean and the food was delicious. You can hang out on the hammocks, lounge at the pool...

On the island of Ometepe, Hotel Omaja was an amazing experience. The photos on the internet do not truly do it justice. There are 7 small cabanas, and an on site bar and restaurant, and an incredible infinity pool, overlooking Lake Nicaragua and volcan Concepcion. The owner, Jamie, from Omaha (where else??), could not have been more friendly. This is...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You are rig, we are a bit off the beaten path, which is one of the things that to me makes it so special, so it is bitter sweet news that the infamous round out here is to be paved this fall.

My wife and I came down to Nicaragua for our honeymoon and stayed here the first week of January, and it was the highlight of our 17 day trip. Jamie is as hospitable as it gets, as are his entire staff (especially Jeffrey). The property is gorgeous, with views of the mainland and Concepcion from the bungalows, restaurant, and pool/hot...

Don't miss this great out of the way hotel. The location is a short and very bumby ride but well worth the slight minimal inconvenience. Super view, excellent staff, gorgeous infinity pool.

Thank,you for the commentary, Mollie, being in he jungle there is no escaping the wildlife, but that's what it's all about right! Due to the limited number of rooms in our little lodge we do recommend reserving ahead of time to make sure we can accommodate you, especially from December through March.

I just completed three nights at La Omaja, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Ometepe. The view was beautiful and made sunsets special, La Omaja is on the best side of the island to avoid getting blown away by the winds (may not sound like a big deal, but trust me, quite important), the cabins...

Thank you for the nice review and you make a good point for tourists thinking on coming between December and April, the winds typically blow out of the east and can get quite blustery making the eastern side of the island a bit uncomfortable at times.

We stayed at La Omaja for three nights over the New Year. We and one other couple shared one of the cabins, and everything was perfect for us.
