I only stayed at the hotel for one night, but would of happily stayed for longer. The host was very friendly and helpful. The room was a blooming delight, given the cost. The room was of a good size and the view of the volcano was great. If there was any kind of negative, it would the ease of getting to the place using a normal car. The road leading up to the hotel is only suitable for 4x4. But besides that, I would definitely recommend staying here.

I went to Ometepe with a girlfriend to get away and relax and recharge. Ananda Guesthouse was the perfect spot! You wake up to the incredible Volcano view. The patio was perfect for morning meditation and stretching. They had a yoga mat provided. Roslyn's communication for the booking was seamless. The on-site staff were so kind. The property animals (two dogs and a cat) were so sweet! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking. I'll definitely be returning!

The guesthouse is beautifully designed with great beds, quality linen and high spec bathrooms. Surrounded by lush grass and trees looking down to the lake. Staff welcoming and very helpful with organising excursions or just giving advice.

Ananda Guesthouse is a beautiful property with unrivalled views of Volcan Concepcion. We loved the manicured gardens and the comfortable, spacious and well appointed rooms. Our bathroom even had views of Volcan Concepcion! It was also very convenient having a kitchen available for guests to use. A water filtration system is available in the kitchen for guests to use. Breakfast was included in the room rate and we really enjoyed having a delicious breakfast while looking out at views of Volcan Concepcion each morning. The breakfasts here were among the best we had on Ometepe Island. There are a couple of dogs that live on the property and these dogs can be quite aggressive towards guests and bark a lot, particularly if guests return to the property after dark. I get nervous around dogs so I did not feel entirely comfortable during our stay here. If you have no issues with dogs you should be fine, but if you are like me and are nervous around dogs then I’d suggest finding somewhere else to stay.

We stayed 4 nights here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are large, sparkling clean and comfortable. The shared kitchen and fridge is a bonus, allowing us to have hot and cold drinks whenever we wanted them, there is fast free wi-fi, free filtered drinking water and hot water for showers. It's an easy walk to several restaurants and a bar or two, but then lovely and quiet up at the lodge. The breakfast is hearty and good, staff friendly and the garden area for a sunset view of Volcan Conception is beautiful. Definitely recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay here as the staff were incredibly welcoming and helped us organise and plan any activities. They also advised us on where to go and visit. The room was lovely with views of the volcano in a peaceful area where you're surrounded by nature.

Excellent place to stay. We stayed 2 nights in there very well appointed and large rooms. The room was extremely clean as is the whole property. Watch the sunsets from our balcony that overlooks the volcano. The staff here very nice and helpful. You won’t be disappointed.

My family stayed here for 3 nights and we were so pleasantly surprised. It was absolutely perfect. Plenty of spaces to come together and also plenty of little nooks to hang in a hammock and relax. The beds were all kings and high quality. The home works off solar energy but there is back up generator for overcast days. I took really great hot water showers even though it is on solar, they were amazing and got really hot! The homes are so comfortable and have everything you need. Gorgeous gardens and grounds to get lost in. The staff were incredible and they made amazing fresh bread and breakfasts, we were spoiled. We will be back and we recommend 4 elementos! Thank you for everything.

If you plan on visiting Ometepe, Roslyn and Jonathan's guest house is a must stay. We were greeted by Roslyn who gave us the rundown on the place. She offered recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. We ordered breakfast for two days while we were there and it was always a fresh tasty Nica breakfast. If we could've stayed a few days longer we would have. It's a bit off the main road and is a bit bumpy to get to but with a motorbike, ATV or truck it's not so bad. Overall, 4 Elementos is a stylish, serene, and beautiful place to stay (and they have an amazing shower - good heat and pressure). It was my favorite place to stay while in Nicaragua. The hospitality you'll receive will be amazing.
