A must-stay destination in Nicaragua.

4.8 on September 04, 2013

When deciding on a place to stay in the SJDS area, I came across Orquidea del Sur on tripadvisor. The pictures on the website looked stunning but you never know for sure until you see a property in person if the pictures are accurate. I now can say that the pictures not only are accurate but may even fall short of conveying the beauty of this property. During our 5 night stay, we were the only guests for the first 3 nights. We felt as if this was our own private villa with staff waiting to assist us at any moment. I don't think that we've ever met nicer people than those who work here. They were unobtrusive but always available to provide a drink, a meal, a towel, a chat, a hello, and a smile. Each morning we ate a delicious breakfast which was included in the price. We would then let one of the staff know which other meals we would be eating that day. We found the food to be some of the best that we'd eaten in Nicaragua. In five days every meal was fabulous with the exception of one steak dinner which was good but not fabulous. Our room was spacious, quiet, and beautiful, and walking out the patio door to the view of the ocean each morning was wonderful. We were impressed with the fact that hot coffee, with warm milk and sugar magically appeared on our patio at 7 a.m. each morning so no need to walk in your PJs in search of coffee (great idea Joanne!). Although the property is a good 25-30 minutes drive from SJDS, we loved the location and seclusion. Honestly, we only went in SJDS once and felt no need to go again. Robert and Joanne are warm, friendly, interesting and helpful hosts who really want you to luxuriate in your stay. They will do everything humanly possible to make it an unforgetable experience.
