We stayed in the “Poolside Grotto” for four nights, and we enjoyed each day more than the day before. We are travelling as backpackers for two months through central america, and we booked our stay at Villa del Loma in order to relax and have a short getaway from the backpacking atmosphere - all our hopes for the place were fulfilled! Both the place and its owners are fantastic; giving you a very personal, yet still private, stay at their beautiful b&b. When not relaxing by the poolside or in our room, we were enjoying the incredible view or treating ourselves with delicious food from the restaurant. Everything from the optional breakfast to the evening a la carte menu was really well prepared and tastefull. The restaurant itself would be worth a visit when staying in San Juan del Sur! We definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Nicaragua!

Firefly Bar & Bistro – Villa Loma BNB Review Relatively new on the scene of dining choices for San Juan del Sur and surrounding communities, Firefly Bar & Bistro is a must visit! Located a short drive from SJDS, in the mountain ridges of El Socorro, with breathtaking views of Costa Rica to the south and San Juan del Sur and Playa Maderas to the North. The only thing that compares with the views are the mouthwatering dining choices along with 5 star presentation, delivered exquisitely by hosts Yasser and Richard. A dining occasion not to be missed. One of the few dining experiences where all senses will be delightfully fulfilled.

One of the best places I ever stayed in my life, and I’ve been fortunate to travel a bit around Nicaragua and many other beautiful places in the world. The first moment you set foot in the Villa, the hospitality and kindness of the hosts Yasser and Richard is remarkable. The whole Villa is gorgeous, they thought about every single detail, and the hospitality is incredibly warming. A big shout out to the chef, who prepared an amazing dinner, and a crepe suzette to die for, also the breakfasts were delicious. Last but not least, the breathtaking view from anywhere you look, splendid location, close to San Juan by car, but far enough to feel the peacefulness of nature.

We stayed at Villa Loma with another couple for 6 nights and we absolutely loved it! The view is stunning, Yasser and the staff are so welcoming and the food is outstanding. Honestly nothing to complain about. We stayed at the Bali Room and there is no AC, but it‘s not at all necessary. In contrary, it‘s good to get an extra blanket as it does get fresh during the night, especially with the wind. Definitely going back to Villa Loma!

This is by far my favorite Nica experience in the ten years of living/working throughout the country. Food as fine as any five star gourmet restaurant in the world but the chef and genuine staff, views, gardens, experience is unmatched!

We stayed one night in December on our trip through Nicaragua. Richard & Yasser were amazing to speak with and I definitely enjoyed the experience. The food was some of the best I have ever had. I am a seafood snob as I am from the Gulf Coast. The lobster special was truly one of the best meals ever. Whether you stay here or not, if you are in the area, definitely book dinner reservations as you will not be disappointed! The walk through the jungle the following morning was great. I am not a huge breakfast eater but I enjoyed mine. My colleagues loved the breakfast too!

The property is beautiful, we stayed in the garden room which shared a lovely little pool surrounded by a pretty garden and sun loungers. The view from the terrace was stunning, a great place to sip a cocktail (recommend a Margarita!) whilst swinging in a hammock and watching the sunset. The dinner was incredible, all the dishes we tried were fabulous. Just sad we only stayed for 1 night so didn’t get to try the rest of the menu. Yasser and Richard were fantastic hosts, helping with travel plans both before and whilst we were there, including an amazing trip to see the turtles in Le Flor. Hope to be back for a longer stay next time.

My husband and I came here for our 20th wedding anniversary. We searched for the perfect place to stay and found it at Villa Loma. Owners Yassir and Richard made us feel at home and helped us navigate the local culture and area. The B&B was romantic and beautiful with its gardens, spectacular view and thoughtful design. The area was very quiet and without light pollution at night. We stayed in the Gardenia and watched the amazing sunset from our porch. We ended up eating supper at Villa Loma every night of our stay there. The chef made delicious food with something different every night. We are vegetarians and he made a special effort to accommodate this. The location was perfect as it was a close drive to San Juan del Sur, Playa Hermosa and Playa Yankee but a short walk up the road and we saw White-faced and Howler monkeys. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about leaving an honest review for this place because I love it so much that I don’t want anyone else to know about it.

Villa Loma is a fabulous piece of paradise with stunning views and everything you could want to unwind. Just loved the birdsong in the morning, the wonderful food on the terrace at the bistro, beach 10 minutes away, private pool if you don't want to move (and you may not!). So many wonderful little nooks and crannies on the property to sit with a book, relax with a drink, breathe in the tropical perfume. Attentive hosts and a warm Nica welcome from staff - the perfect blend of privacy and pride of service. Can't wait to return!

I ordinarily stay local for my birthday, but had a desire to getaway this year for a much-needed respite and deserved a trip of rest and relaxation. My home life can, at times, be quite busy and stressful, so getting away was imperative and just what I needed to reboot. To be candid, initially, I booked a hotel elsewhere nearby; however, after further research and looking at reviews right here on Trip Advisor, I was impressed with the sort of reviews given to this hotel and was much like the kind of place I'd enjoy, given the kind of traveler I am. Best decision ever. Listen, there is VIP, and then there is truly "very important person" -- from beginning to end, I was treated like that very important person. From the transportation provided all the way to the service provided in my last moments of sunbathing by the pool before departure, I was treated so well. When I arrived, I was greeted by the warmest most welcoming smile, exuberant and authentic personality of Yassar (no title - he does it all). He offered me a cold essential oil-infused towel and a tall glass of hibiscus tea - ahh... right on time. The room I was assigned was had plenty of light, airy, wonderful decor, which included tiles that were hand-painted by a local Nicaraguan artist. The bed was so comfortable. Best sleep in a long while. Simply Beautiful! But let me tell you how the stars were aligned for me on this trip....they have just incorporated a new restaurant right on the property, and have commandeered what I will dub as a "culinary beast." Chef Don Johnny was previously head chef for high-end establishments and has now graced this hotel with his culinary prowess. What a lucky gal am I to have had this experience. His food, and I'm not exaggerating, had me speechless with every meal. All I could muster up was oooh, ahh, mmmm, wow. Genius in the kitchen. Perfection. Absolutely the highlight of my trip. I hugged him after every.single.meal. Before I conclude, I can't neglect that the property itself was wonderfully crafted and designed.. but the views, especially the sunrise and sunset, were incredible. I received a massage, pedicure and manicure under the sunset. Fantabulous. Both Yassar, Richard, supporting staff and all affiliated with this outfit treated me so well that it will be quite the challenge to top my experience. Other hotels need to take notes of their blueprint of superior service. Safe to say I will return again, again, and again. Highly recommend.

D.on Jhonny loved creating food for you and we cant wait for you to come back. Thanks so much for all your kind words! Love Richard and Yasser
