Let me start by saying that it is not the Ritz. In its own quiet way, it is much better! I instantly felt welcomed like family and was overcome by the beauty of this little ecolodge. Nope, you do not have all the comforts of home. First off, why would you even want to watch TV when the scenery is so spectacular? All the windows are screened so I found I didn't miss A/C at all; the breeze off the lake was cooling and the sound of the waves like a lullaby. Everything we ate and drank while we were there was grown, harvested and prepared on site. Yes, even the rice! They make their own cheese and coffee, both of which are delicious! Their honey is from their own bee hives and has a taste quite unlike Canadian honey but equally delicious. I have been in Nicaragua for a month now and, so far, the Tierra Blanca has been my most comfortable stay. I am adjusted to asking for a pump to be turned on so that I may have a shower and to having a cool shower, so neither of these things bothered me. Ask Hernan to give you a tour of the farm! His enthusiasm is contagious and his knowledge is vast! We saw all manner of plants, everything has a purpose. We also got to see the resident monkeys! So cool! Our bed was comfortable and the front porch is a perfect place to spend lazy afternoons and evenings. The shoreline has been left natural so that you can enjoy the quiet and the birds. If you choose to swim, you have to walk about 100 meters down the beach. We were happy to just enjoy how natural everything was; there are lots of other places on the island that you can swim. We have friends joining us from Canada in a couple of months and can't wait to take them to this beautiful piece of Nicaraguan heaven!

A quiet, family run ecolodge about a 5min drive out of town. It was great, perfect for relaxation! The family offers activities to keep yourself busy including horseback riding and hiking up the nearby volcano, Conception. The farm is quite large and you could spend a day exploring it! The food here was home made and delicious. Everybody in the family was very nice and more than willing to help with anything needed. The owner, Hernan, is an amazing local veterinarian that is very interesting to talk to. He is full of knowledge and passion for his life and local area. He knows how to speak English, Spanish, and Russian (better than I do and I'm Russian!). Everything was clean and the grounds offered several places to relax on the lake as well as a few hammocks and undercover areas. I recommend renting a motorcycle to fully explore the island and all that it has to offer! I cannot wait for the opportunity to return in the future!

This hotel is very dirty; the beach is not ready for swimming or taking a walk by it. The place is full of spiders. Do not eat the food, it is bad, and they over charge. Also it is locate very far from town.

This accommodation is quite rustic as one might expect from an ecolodge and definitely not suited for everyone. That being said the longer we stayed the more we liked it. The family that runs the lodge is very friendly, helpful and hardworking. We were travelling with our two large, long haired dogs and this was the perfect spot for them. No a/c but was comfortable as lovely breezes come off the lake and there are plenty of shaded areas. (Plus lots of hammocks!) It is true that the water is rationed, but a simple request to turn it on when a shower is wanted is all it takes. This lodge is a little out of town but within walking distance of a keen hiker, about 4 klm

If you want night life, you are a little far out of town, but it is perfect for relaxxation. It is a family owned, working farm that employs ecological practices. Lots of wildlife, bring your binoculars as you are on the lake and there are lots of birds. The family is very welcoming.

We stayed at the Tierra Blanca in the beginning of January, which is still high season on Ometepe. We couldn't get anything else online and didn't want to go there without a reservation. The Tierra Blanca is 4 km from Moyogalpa, but 2 of these are off street so walking there is not really an option. Taxis are 4 Dollars per person, TukTuk 150 Cordobas per ride. The hotel is a really a finca with cows, chickens, horses and so on, directly at the lake. It is simple but very nice. The owner Susann is a very, very nice person though still a tough business woman. Tough business woman because of the following: As beautiful as the setting was, our room was not. It was awful actually. It was ok clean but the walls looked awful, my mattress must have been either 20 years old or a 600 lb person slept in there for a year. The water did not work so every time we wanted to wash our hands our shower, we had to go to Susann and she turned on our water. Everything had rather a hostel than a hotel character but Tierra Blanca charges 45 Dollars per night, which is way too much although a very good breakfast including eggs, juice and rice was included. The following points are more of a must know, if you stay there: Dinner is 12 Dollars. Which is ok depending on the food of the day. We had a very simple chicken dinner one night where 12 Dollars are horribly overpriced, but had great fish the next night. We didn't ask before how much the dinner was, so we were a little upset about the costly chicken dinner - but that was our fault! The food was amazing, cooked by Susanns mother. Furthermore, please note that this is a farm/finca and that there are animals everywhere. Spiders, ants, the occasional cockroach. You need to be ok with nature because you are sleeping in the middle of it. The wifi doesn't really work, so do not rely on it. Overall: If you're looking for solitude and nature, this is your place to stay. But try to get a better price than we did. 15 Dollars/night/person is enough.

Good nights estimated Katrin, First of all thank you for your sincere and bona fide comments that enrich our business. We're really in the middle of nature where it is virtually impossible to get rid of insects, birds, howler monkeys, cows, pigs, dogs, ducks, geese, vultures, buzzards, woodpeckers, constrictor snakes, hummingbirds, spiders, scorpions, ants (almost all species in the world are there), owls, owls, etc., etc. and that's really what we're trying to balance to make more pleasant the stay of our clients. All basic services like power, water, gas and others are generated or produced by ourselves, energy using solar panels, water by pumping and filtering underground water, processing of organic material for production of gas through digester, etc, so we should not rationalize, but rather to optimize the use of them to always guarantee the availability and presence of the same. Our restaurant is simple, but in turn has been perhaps the most important point of reference for the site, as the culinary specialty you it has recognized, thanks to these partners that know how to do well is that you get to enjoy each dish. The prices of course will differ depending on the order, so we recommend always see the same prices. We are grateful for your comments make us improve every day more and more. We hope to have better conditions for their arrival at the next occasion. P.S. The beds are orthopedic, that's the reason why the felt a little stiff. Hernán García

If you are looking for a place that is completely calm and relax this is the place to go in Ometepe. This is ran by the Garcia Gonzalez family who has been there for over 55 years. My daugther and I just visited again and we loved it. The food is great. Everything is natural no A/C Luis

The three nights that we spent at Hotel Ecologico in Tierra Blanca were the highlight of our two week trip to Nicaragua. The family that owns/manages this farm/hotel are incredibly kind and gracious hosts. We spent our days wading in the lake, lounging in hammocks, and eating some of the freshest and most delicious food we’ve ever had. The lady of the house kindly invited my husband into her kitchen to learn her cooking secrets, her son gave us a tour of the farm showing us all the local produce (lemons, limes, oranges, coconuts, coffee, etc.) My husband tried his hand at milking cows and we both enjoyed any chance to converse with the owner in Spanish about NIcaraguan history, farming, and many other topics. The owner joked when we left that we would soon wish were back in Tierra Blanca and she was right, in truth we still do!

Let me start by giving you the positive about our stay here. Our hostess (I believe her name is Ligia) was a very welcoming and friendly lady. She really tried her best to please. She made every effort to converse with us and attend to all our needs. And because of this, I thought long and hard about writing a review. I felt the rooms left much to be desired. It was very hard for me to rate the cleanliness when it would be next to impossible to keep these rooms clean. The floor is made of large, porous bricks, making sweeping and washing difficult. Insects prevail - we found a dead scorpion in our room as well as many large spiders in our bathroom. Lots of creepy things everywhere. And no mosquito netting for protection. Apparently, they had just sprayed for insects before we arrived. The mattresses sagged but the sheets were clean. Maid service is provided if requested. The internet was down while we were there. I did not see a "spa". There is no restaurant. Meals are prepared for you ($6 per plate) but you don't have a choice of fares. Our lunch was lovely, but supper and breakfast were a disappointment. The beach is small with course sand and could have used a cleaning. We paid $45 per night because we booked ahead and on-line, but another guest paid $25 per night because he got his room when he arrived. The common patio area was nice, and had a great breeze. This was just not the place for me. By my definition, it was a bit beyond rustic. The hotel is definitely not what it has been billed as by the owner.
