Me and my husband spent part of our honeymoon at Totoco, and were very pleased with our decision. Totoco is beautiful, remote, and very romantic. We loved eating breakfast every morning overlooking Concepcion Volcano, and retiring at night to our adorable cabin. The food was wonderful and the staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating. Various tours were...

Going to Ometepe Isalnd and staying at Totoco is by far one of the best trips I have ever taken. We hope to go back and stay longer. It has a breath taking view in a setting that makes one feel disconnected from all the noise of every day life. It's perfect for relaxing, walking, and observing all the beauty...

We spent only one night in Totoco... but we felt like in paradise. A wonderful place with beautiful cabins and a breathtaking view. The owners did an incredible job building this place, congratulation. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is all organic and tastes great! Don't go to Nicaragua without spending some time in Totoco!

My wife and I spent a few days at Totoco in November 2011. We loved Ometepe, and felt right at home at Totoco. Totoco is one of the more "high end" lodges on the island, but they provide value for the cost. The cabins are beautiful with terrific views of Concepcion Volcano, the staff is helpful and very pleasant and...

An unforgettable, unique place. It feels magical and peaceful, with warm, wonderful staff, great fresh, organic food (fish was caught for us for our dinner!), monkeys in the trees. I was happy just to hang out on the patio by day and meet people at the lodge's restaurant at meal times. A relaxing place to wind down

I recently got back from a trip in Nicaragua and the time in Ometepe was the highlight. Totoco was a big part of that. It's in an unbelievably beautiful spot on the side of the Maderas volcano, with an almost prehistoric view of Volcano Concepcion. The food is excellent and the staff is unbelievably helpful in organizing tours and helping...

We recently stayed on Ometepe for 3 days and the first two were spent in Totoco Eco Lodge. The roads are good on the first section of the island although from Santa Domingo onwards they really deteriorate. This isn't a problem other than it slows your trip down somewhat, although who's in a rush? The drive way takes you up...

I've been meaning to write a review since my wife and I came here last summer (8/2010). We stayed in the Tonatiu cottage and loved it. It's like campling in true style. We did encounter some of the more scary looking spiders here, but what else do you expect when you are staying halfway up a volcano in a jungle...
