From the moment you step on the island until the sad moment you leave, you are treated like a star in your own self-styled movie. Whether you choose to be active, semi-active or simply a lounge lizard, the staff makes sure that you are always satisfied. The menus are inventive and offer vegan options for all tastes and you can...

Booking process was challenging. I reserved a room from Mr and Mrs Smith. They charged they commission and told hotel will charge the rest. Quite normal procedure. Next day I got an email from the hotel urging me to pay the room during the same day. It was on Saturday. I hesitate to pay by any link sent by email....

We loved the other hotels in the Cayuga lodge we stayed in but Jicaro is a case above - the little touches make everything perfect. Ask for anything you need and they will happily bring it. Rooms are 2 floored with quite steep steps so do bear that in mind and a wonderful veranda to drink coffee on in the...

Traveling to new countries is my passion. The incredibly kind and loving staff at Jicaro captured my heart. They corrected my poor spanish gently and with humor. As much as I want to see other parts of the world I know that I will be drawn back to this beautiful island over and over. The Food: Inspiring, exceptional and don't...

We only got to stay one night, but it was the best place in Nicaragua! Next time, and we will be back for sure, we will stay much longer. The three included meals a day were amazing and there were plenty of activities during the day.

Beautiful surroundings and superb staff will pamper you and the chefs will spoil you. Make sure to take a kayak out and explore the lake shore. You should get a massage too. Alma is tremendous. This place is well run. Our 18 year old son enjoyed it too. Younger kids maybe not.
