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...

This place has become far too touristy. Yes it's beautiful, but it was a great place to relax and unwind from big cities about a year ago and now it's overcrowded, and far too americanized to be enjoyable. Sad to say but we won't be returning again.

I went with my girlfriend to Paradiso since I had a previous experience over there. So I went back. The location is simply amazing, fantastic and unique. You get shocked how beautiful the place is. The contact with the nature, the silence in the night what grants you a perfect night of sleep after enjoying the lake and bars/restaurant. The...

The hostel is in a wonderful location; the lake is really something else. Hanging out in the sun for 2 days and getting away from the noisy cities was wonderful! However, food and drinks were overpriced. $5 for a breakfast with a stale bagel that didn't fill me up. The included kayaks are very heavy and probably not what you...

The settings are really nice, however there is not really much to do. I was looking forward for kayaking but as the lake gets rough and the kayaks available are really not made for water like that, it is not recommendable to go out on the lake, they flip over very easily. Definitely take the vest even if you are...

This place is NOT to be missed! The lake itself is actually stunning and you can easily get stuck here! The bar awesome and food is delish. They have kayaks and a dock to hang out on all day. Maybe book because it fills up fast and the receptionist is rude and not helpful at all - she was the...

Stayed here for 3 nights in the 10 bed dorm room. We decided to see our stay here as a holiday in the middle of otherwise low budget travels because it's not cheap. However. The menu is great, the food is very nice, well stocked bar, very good free pour measures of alcohol! & pleasant staff, water sports equipment included...
