Last month my wife and I traveled to Nicaragua for our honeymoon. When we arrived by boat at Jicaro, we were greeted with refreshing rum drinks and cool towels. The staff’s attention to detail was exceptional. Everyone on the island knew and called us by name after one day. At one point we were relaxing on their floating dock, when...

Dear Andrew, thank you for visiting us on your honeymoon and thank you for writing such a nice review about us, the staff. We hear from the guests very often how much they like the feeling of being on the island, the peace of the lake, the views of the volcano, the comfortable casitas and the fresh local food. But...

enjoyable stay in beautiful Nicaraqua, great food great service, the only downside is the design of the bungalows is just not private for couples, screens and no windows means you hear everything around you and everyone hears you and your girl, haha. The dawn chorus of birds and wildlife is fantastic.

I cannot say enough about how spectacular our stay at Jicaro was! My husband and I spent 4 days there whilst celebrating our 20th Anniversary in March! Not only is the location fantastic - just a short boat ride from the mainland - surrounded by picturesque views of adjacent islands and the volcano. We enjoyed getting to know the staff...

Nicely designed Eco hotel, room was a duplex, bathroom and seating area on ground, the bedroom on the top, felt like sleeping in a tree house, small balcony with a hammock overlooking the lake. Very friendly and attentive staff. The best time to head to town is right before sunset, beats any sunset cruise I ever had! Tasty local food,...

This is an outstanding luxury eco-retreat where you receive the highest level of comfort and personal service. From the moment you arrive you are treated with courtesy and respect. The rooms are thoughtfully planned so as to ensure that each has the maximum isolation and unspoilt views. The food is gourmet quality. To celebrate a major anniversary we had booked...

We were very impressed after our stay at Jicaro Ecolodge. After an easy 10-15 minute boat ride from Granada, we arrived at this tiny island in Lake Nicaragua. All of the buildings are built into the existing landscape and seemingly melt into the natural foliage. There is a small central office and restaurant area as well as a small pool...

All the reviews you read are true. This place is as amazing as it sounds. Couple little details I want to point out. The staff knows your name. No idea how they know it, but people you've never met will greet you by your name. Small but amazing little extra touch. While I read a review that the excursions are...

Beautiful place! Everything was organized perfectly - from the ride to the island late one evening, excursions to Granada and Volcan Mombacho, kayaking, and relaxing. The food was perfect and the service incredible. I highly recommend!

Lovely room overlooking the lake, delicious homemade food, amazing massage and all the staff were so friendly but not obtrusive. You could take out paddle boards, kayaks, they organise fantastic day trips or short excursions so there is plenty to do or you can just relax.
