We spent 4 nights at Morgan's Rock and we enjoyed it very much. Great service, friendly staff, good and local food as well as a very nice and special bungalow with breathtaking views. Nice beach and pool and kids were very welcome.

Thank you for your kind comments. Kids are definitely welcome in our installations. It is a wonderful place to spend quality family time, enjoy the private beach, bungalows, and great Nicaraguan outdoors. We are glad to have had you.

This hotel is overwhelmingly overrated in every regard except for the quality of the rooms. I thought that I had done my homework by reading the 2014 review in the NYT. I could not be more irritated by that author's unbridled enthusiasm. There is a bizarre disconnect between the rustic entrance to this remote ecolodge and the crass chalkboard of...

Thank you for your post. We also believe our bungalows are amazing, specially with the waves down below to sooth you during sleep. Your comment definitely catches us by surprise due to the circumstances of your reservation. It was a clear misunderstanding, something admitted by your travel companion, that our hotel didn't offer a yoga instructor. We do offer surf...

What a wonderful vacation. No TVs, no radios, no alarm clocks, no telephones. Just wonderful views and incredible peace. The casitas are screened from floor to ceiling on 3 sides so there are no walls to obstruct the views of the totally private beach. Our own deck with a swing daybed for 2. I commandeered the desk as a make-up...

Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful comments! ¨An Ecolodge of amaziness¨ is an excellent way of describing our place. We are glad you enjoyed our bungalows and the mile long beach. Our menu is catered for adults and children, and the food indeed is delicious. We hope you can back in the near future.

Just stayed with husband and teen daughters for 3 nights at Morgan's Rock. We absolutely loved it. We practically had the whole beach to ourselves.

I agree with most of the other comments about Morgan' Rock. The location is incredible and the beach couldn't have been better. The bungalows have fantastic views, and although not air conditioned, the combination of ceiling fans, ocean breezes and the sounds of the surf made it very pleasant for sleeping. There is no wi-fi in the rooms, although it...

Thank you for your post! The bungalows and beach area are definitely one of our best features. We also would add our Staff and food. We will look into the bar and drinks at the beach service; services we offer throughout the year. The view from the bungalows is definitely worth the small climb.

This was our first trip to Nicaragua and our first stay in an ecolodge and during our first night, I was convinced that ecotourism was not my thing. Our room was lovely, but instead of walls we had screens. It was like sleeping outside. I was nervous about insects, spiders, snakes, scorpions - all the creepy-crawlies finding a way into...
