Great view and location

We really liked the location of the hotel as it was a short cab ride ($6 each way) to the town... See full review

    Is this Eden?

    The view from the top pool!To my left is a cove with black sandy beaches that become rocky running up to the mountains.My front view is the beautiful blue Pacific with far off mountain peaks.To my right is a stunning cove with a black sandy beach and the cove is dotted with fishing and sail boats. I could go on forever about this stunning resort.I looked at other much more expensive resorts but nothing could touch this if for sheer beauty alone!

    A Week In The Sun

    My time at the Ocotal Resort was very relaxing and enjoyable. The staff was very accommodating in all areas. Reception, dining, housekeeping and concierge. Even though I didn't take advantage of all of the possibilities at this resort, I did enjoy what I did. I wouldn't consider this a family resort to bring children. This is one for adults who want to get away for some time for themselves. To enjoy the ammenities as one would seem fit. If you want hustle bustle this isn't the resort for you. This is laid back with beautiful surroundings. Even the pesky birds who will snatch food off your plate if you turn your back on them. The iguana's can be little beggars also. I enjoyed the views with the monkeys (who don't approach) and one day their was a pod of whales swimming close by. SO I do hope that if you get the opportunity yourself that you visit the Ocotal. A big help would be to speak and understand a little spanish

    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.
