We were greeted immediately when walking up to the gate in English! Expected Spanish being we are in Nicaragua. She speaks 5 languages, which is very helpful to foreigners! We didn't have a reservation but welcomed us to come in and check out her place. Sat and talked over an hour about all our lives and also how she started...

I'd be lying if I'd say Villa Riviera wasn't a bit above our travelers budget, but we saw some photos of the place and couldn't resist splurging a little. I'm happy to tell you it was worth every penny and we even extended our stay with an extra two days! The place itself is gorgeous and looks like it wouldn't...

Esther gave us lots helpful advice on restaurants and tours to make our time more exciting. Esther made spectacular breakfasts that filled us up. She is a lovely and very happy lady and always makes your time the best she can make it. She organised a wonderful horse riding tour our 8 & 9 year olds loved. Highly recommended.

Thank you Esther for looking after us so well. Your garden is a delight, exotic plants, flowers and the odd hummingbird or two. Beautiful happy cats! Perfect for the beginning of our Nicaraguan adventure.

The outgoing proprietor Esther's biggest desire is to make you feel welcome and pampered. Our room was small but clean and had a private bathroom just outside of the room. The shared spaces are clean, inviting and beautifully decorated. The B&B is located a couple kilometres from the bustling town of Esteli, so you have the tranquility of a more...

What can I say? Esteli is where I began my Nicaraguan adventure and I can honestly say Esther couldn't have given me a better welcome to this beautiful country. Her place is the epitome of a 'home from home' - not only has she created beautiful and relaxing spaces for her visitors, but she provides the kind of welcome one...

My partner and I spent a wonderful 3 nights at Esther's place. From the initial email inquiry to the warm, energetic welcome to the time we had to leave, she was the quintessential host. She loves what she does and it shows! Make sure to try one of her delicious paninis 😃

Esther is a fantastic, effervescent hostess - the hostess with the mostest - who made us feel incredibly welcome in her lovely home. Great breakfasts on the patio, good advice for sight-seeing, tours and eating out in and around Esteli. Lovely room and hot showers! Bliss!

This was our third time to stay here and each time we have been very happy in this charming B & B. Esther is a wonderful host and chatting with her is always one of the highlights of our stay. Breakfast on her beautifully landscaped patio is a very pleasant experience and her homemade banana bread is delicious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I'm a Dutch expat who always wanted to start a B&B in another country. In 2009 I sold my house in the Netherlands, quit my job as a bank manager and bought a ticket to Ecuador. I lived there for a while,but it wasn't the place for me. I then decided to go for my second choice; Nicaragua. I arrived here in Esteli in 2011 and fell in love with the place and the people and bought a house. I'm an outgoing person who speaks English, Dutch, German and Spanish fluently. I used to speak French as well, but somehow when I learned Spanish, the French got a bit lost along the way :) It has always been my pleasure to welcome people to my house and pamper them with great atmosphere, food and drinks. Here I would like to do the same. I would like to make you feel very welcome in my B&B. Hope to see you very soon :)E ... more   less
