Esther is a terrific host and was helpful with advice on locality and arranging a tour. Food was good and accommodations are excellent. In and upscale neighborhood where a lot of the cigar magnates own houses. Very nice.

Estel is a lovely city and you will not find a more attentive host than Esther at B&B Villa Riveria. She makes you feel at home and, indeed, you are a guest in her home rather than simply a client. Yet she does not smother you, either. There is lots of privacy with the comfortable outdoor, covered breakfast and seating...

Already 3 times before we tried to stay in Esther' s lovely B&B but until now she was always full. Thanks Esther it was lovely to stay with you. Your breakfast with home made yoghurt, home made banana bread, home made peanut-butter, home made marmelade, papaya from the garden etc etc was just fabulous. Thanks for all and everything and...

Great host (Esther). She wants the guests to have an amazing stay and she sure succeeds in this. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. It is also nice to have a hot shower. The living area outside is also very cosy. The breakfast was the best we have had in Nicaragua with all kinds of sugar free and...

This is our second time to stay with Esther. We stayed for 7 nights this trip and loved every minute of it. Esther is the most wonderful host, full of delightful conversation and restaurant recommendations. Her homemade banana bread is a treat! The room was once again clean and comfortable. She has a large dispenser of chilled bottled water with...

Ester upped the game for our return visit. The food offered for breakfast was superb. The availability of a scooter for running errands in Esteli was much appreciated. This is very quiet location in an otherwise noisy city.

I am torn between keeping this place a secret or praising it from the rooftops. Praise wins. Coming to Villa Riviera is like visiting your close friends. The rooms are fine; clean, simple and with a hot water shower. The water pressure is better than some of the finer hotels in Managua. The owner, Esther, is a stellar hostess- warm,...

This is my second stay with Ester at her Bed and Breakfest. The second i walked in i was welcomed with a bug hug and we started chatting on how things are going. She already had a glass of her homemade Kombach ready for me when i got there. The bed and Breakfest is located in the safest areas in...

Villa Riviera is a super nice place to stay, and Esther is the best host. The breakfast was beyond awesome! It's not exactly in the city center, but not too far, either, and the residential area is nice. It was greatly appreciated that dogs are allowed! Overall a great experience.

Villa Riviera is all about lovely Esther, who speaks many languages and seems to live for her occupation as a hostess of this cute little bed and breakfast. She is a gem to have at the start of the journey around Nicaragua, as she is full of advise and stories about this magnificent country which she's chosen to be her...

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
