Costa Dulce Beachfront Retreat Reviews
“Amazing echo-responsible hotel emerged in beautiful nature and right on the beach. A real paradise! Beautiful rooms, beautiful views, sound of the waves, daily yoga in a yoga studio with amazing ocean views and an even more amazing yoga teacher.. ❤️ Stayed here for 2 weeks and would stay even longer if I could. Will be back without hesitation.” – Ksenia Votinova,
The first thing I must compliment is the FOOD! Ever meal was absolutely delicious. MY favourite was the breakfast buffet which was always so filling. The kitchen staff is fantastic and really goes out of their way to accommodate any dietary restrictions.They make the most delicious smoothies and fresh juices with all meals. Which is great because it is HOT in Nicaragua.
The bungalows were neat and clean. We stayed in the big Bungalow at the top of the hill which had a lot of windows and lots of wind coming through at night which made it super comfortable to sleep. I have to say if you are thinking of a place to retreat this place is a fantastic choice for people of all ages and families. It's a very quiet and chilled our atmosphere.” – Ania W.
