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...

we really enjoyed our day here, only wished we had booked an overnight stay! The location was perfect, the staff was friendly and the day on the lake couldn't have been more relaxing. Thank you to our taxi driver, Juan Carlos who recommended this spot. We will defintely recommend it to anyone we know who is travelling to Nicaragua!

Hello Kevyn and thanks for sharing your experience in Paradiso. What happens on christmas day was really horrible. We are working all year around to ensure the safty of the guests, there are signs on the beach that says that lifejackets are madatory and the staff is trained to tell to everybody that takes a kayak to wear it. On...

We had a great stay and could have easily stayed longer. The location and view is amazing and I'm sure that this place will get a lot more touristy over the next few years. I noticed a number of reviews commenting on the cost of the food and yes it is more expensive than what typical budget traveller is used...

The location is absolutely stunning, the water is gorgeous and it's an amazing place to stay but it does have its downsides! As an overnight guest you have to have a tab and pay on check out. Throughout the stay whenever you order food or drinks you just give your room number. You can also get drinks from the fridge...

Took an afternoon shuttle trip from Granada, about half an hour away. The place is accessed from the road via a system of short walkways and steps. The restaurant/bar overlooks the beach area and a wonderful view of the sizeable crater lake. There are various water toys to play with (free for customers), and the water temperature perfect. The restaurant...
