Just stayed with husband and teen daughters for 3 nights at Morgan's Rock. We absolutely loved it. We practically had the whole beach to ourselves. The service is excellent and the rooms are very unique, completely open to an amazing ocean view. You have to be aware that this is not a property for everyone. There is no a/c and...

I agree with most of the other comments about Morgan' Rock. The location is incredible and the beach couldn't have been better. The bungalows have fantastic views, and although not air conditioned, the combination of ceiling fans, ocean breezes and the sounds of the surf made it very pleasant for sleeping. There is no wi-fi in the rooms, although it...

Thank you for your post! The bungalows and beach area are definitely one of our best features. We also would add our Staff and food. We will look into the bar and drinks at the beach service; services we offer throughout the year. The view from the bungalows is definitely worth the small climb.

We recently spent six nights at Morgan's Rock as part of a nine-night trip in Nicaragua (also visited Los Patios in Granada and Hotel Casa Naranja in Managua). Although it was our first time in this beautiful Central American country, we have also spent time in Belize and Costa Rica--where we happened to stay at ecolodges too. We absolutely loved...

We had a wonderful and memorable stay here, together with our 7 and 10 year old boys. We concur with everything that has been said about how stunning the beach, the views and the bungalows are.

This was our first trip to Nicaragua and our first stay in an ecolodge and during our first night, I was convinced that ecotourism was not my thing. Our room was lovely, but instead of walls we had screens. It was like sleeping outside. I was nervous about insects, spiders, snakes, scorpions - all the creepy-crawlies finding a way into...
