We had a great time staying here for 4 nights. The restaurant is delicious, the beach is beautiful. We had a private room and it was very modestly priced. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. If you are considering visit the Granada area consider staying her rather than in the city. You can take very inexpensive taxi rides or...

The set-up of Paradiso is amazing, looks like the garden of Eden! It is located directly on the Laguna de Apoyo, pristine and thermal water, free use of kayaks, lots of activities (ping-pong, pool table...) they organise tours and shuttles (daily shuttle from Granada, but also to other places of Nicaragua). The cocteles is the bar are super tasty and...

I have been going here for a few years, and things just keep getting better. They now have more beachside chairs, a new spa, some new rooms and new changing facilities. The menu is wonderful and the food is great. Staff are attentive and friendly. My only criticism would be to upgrade the technology so that the bar area and...

This was by far one of the best places I ate food on my 3 week trip to Central America! Also the Laguna is like no other. Truly a sight to see and a great place to stay! The rooms are clean and the staff is mostly friendly. You can shuttles to just about anywhere from here too.

I have been in Laguna de Apoyo for 3 months and regularly go to Paradiso for food, drinks, and the spa. Having compared with several places in the laguna I can say that Paradiso consistently has the best service and food, with the best prices in the laguna. And the Spa is really great - they offer massage, waxing, manicures,...

We spewnt our last night in Nicaragua at Paradiso Hostel. It was stunningly beautiful and Cynthia was super helpful! She helped us organize a trip to Volcan Masaya and made sure we had a taxi to the airport ready for us at 6:00am. The food was delicious and the scenery was heavenly. I highly recommend.

We went there to eat veggie burgers, salads and smoothies and all of them were soooo good! They didn't have room for us, so we stayed in Peace Project which is 5 minutes walk, and we could come eat whenever we would like too ;) the restaurant has an amazing view 👌🏻☀️💙

We did the day trip for $14- pick up and drop off from our hotel. Food is overpriced, but that's expected with the location. Beautiful, clean property. The Vietnamese pork is delicious and unfortunately, the mango chicken is very disappointing.. Their drinks and smoothies are good! Wifi only works in the first floor, not by the beach. They have a...
