HORRIBLE, run down, falling apart!

EXTREMELY disappointed. This hotel is VERY misleading by the website! Everything was falling apart, there were open wires hanging out of open outlets in our bathroom; there was only one person on staff at the pool, it took 30 minutes to get a drink because they ran out of ice, they than ran off with my credit card which took another 20 minutes to get back. I tried to order 3 different meals and couldn't because they were out of chips, shells, strawberries, the fish for the tacos, and cheese. The hot tub was broken and had crabs swimming in it. There was some type of animal poop surrounding the pool. The staff was not very friendly or helpful. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone and felt completely ripped off.

Great Beach Holiday

The Hotel was nearly perfect. Superb, superb view. Great room and attentive staff. The only lowdown was no variety in breakfast. If they would improve that it would rate a 5. The beach excellent. Not crowded. Climate excellent. Great opportunities for boating. For tours, I suggest that you do them on your own with a rental car

beautiful views

The hotel needs a lot of TLC, specially the rooms, we were very disappointed how old and lack of care the rooms were. The views were awesome, food was okay and staff friendly..

Wonderful View Of The Pacific

We had a wonderful view of the Pacific from our room. Although the roads are not great, there is lots to do and see within a reasonable drive. Dining at the resort can be boring after several days so you would be wise to get a rental car and explore of if nothing else use it to find some great local dining.

Up Hill Climb

Nice hotel wonderful views and friendly wildlife- Don't be afraid of the raccoons they are friendly. The hotel was difficult to find and poorly marked. The hotel building were spaced out and very hilly. Had to put the vehicle in 4 wheel drive to make it up the hill.

The Ocotal Beach Resort ...

The Ocotal Beach Resort staff was not friendly at all. Anytime you enquired about anything they would refer you to the manager who was never there. The rooms were very disappointing with no hot water or working toilets. We asked to move and again we were referred to the manager who was never there. We asked for maintenance to fix the toilet and they never came. The swim pools were not clean and extremely small. You had to drive though 2 security gates to gain access to the property. The only problem with that is they never enquired who you were or what room you were in. The restaurants were not good at all. We finally moved to another resort.

great ocean view

This was a very nice staying. The hotel brings together a hill- and beachside setting, with stunning views of the surrounding areas and ocean. Rooms are comfortable, the only negative note being a certain, sometimes strong, smell of sewage coming from the bathroom. Dining was not always up to scratch. We went off-season, and one could tell than in the days when the hotel had few guests the quality of the food tended to decline. Prices at lunch and dinner were sometimes exorbitant (around 15 dollars for really small and not particularly good salads and starters). Leave the hotel and visit the nearby town for dinner.

Dining spots in nearby Coco are better value and better quality than at the resort.
