Arrived here after cycling 100km so was a welcomed sight especially after the amazing downhill! Had a gorgeous view from Our room - which was basic but matched what we paid! Drinks were cold, atmosphere warm and pizza amazing! Would recommend!

We stayed here for 2 nights with 4 friends in the dorms. No mistake, the Laguna is beautiful. And the staff of the Monkey Hut is really friendly. They offer free kayaks and tubes. However, the food is average and unfortunately there were no other people our age here (around 25 years old). I would recommend Paradiso (50 meters down...

Location, food, and staff were all good. There was good wi-fi the views of the lake were amazing. The thing that let this place down was the beds, they were quite uncomfortable and loud which made sleeping difficult. There is loads to do around the lake though so if you aren't staying long then its okay. It was the most...

Hey everyone! We just stayed at Monkey Hut for two nights and it's a really nice place, modern and clean rooms, good access to the laguna, friendly staff, good food (from partnering joint-ventures on the property), but if you go here with your family, especially with little kids, bear in mind the following thing: More or less once a month...

Went for the afternoon to escape the heat. Jason at reception was very friendly and helpful. Waited out a storm at the bar halfway down the hill then went swimming. Kayaks were available, they also have a floating dock. Water was really nice. I would stay here if staying on the laguna

49$ for private room and 16$(?) for dorm. Nice area with a relaxed atmosphere. Nice and clean facilities. Decent food. Kayaks included in the price. After checkout (10am i think) you have to pay 4$ to stay at the area. Real stupid and greedy if you ask me. Watch out for thieves at the beach, some local guy nicked my...

We have not stayed the night here, but it's second time for me to Monkey Hut for the day. We saw that they have about 4 rooms at the top with a beautiful view and one big rancho for a family down by the waters edge. I like it as a day spot because with the $5/person you pay, you...

I stayed a couple of nights, at first in a shared room, and then outdoors in one of the hammocks. The room was very average. The hammock was located beautifully overlooking the lake. In the morning the sunrise is just amazing. However, the hammocks are not secluded from the common area at the porch and yard. Some people don't understand...

I took a shuttle from Granada and spent one day and night at Monkey Hut before returning to Granada. Dorm beds cost around $10. They charge $16 but basically $6 covers they day pass to enjoy the use of the grounds. They have a plenty of outdoor chairs and hammocks to relax in. The water is in the Laguna is...

Great location and amazing views for the price. Comfy dorm rooms, nice swimming platform. Good food but limited choice, took a long time to arrive and couldn't order late. Great for a couple of nights.

“If you are a couple or just someone who is looking for a nice room, I would recommend the private rooms! I ended up staying in the dorms; which was was nice as well.”

“The rooms under the balcony facing the laguna get very intense, bright morning sun. The hut on the hill going down has a thatch roof currently covered in plastic, making it quite hot. Day trippers "camp out" right in front of this hut, so there's little privacy on the nice balcony (at least until they all leave).”
