Hotel Los Robles
Colonial-style hotel in a modern, upmarket commercial and residential district of Managua.
This tranquil colonial-style hotel comes as a bit of a surprise, situated in a rather smart, upmarket residential district of Managua and close to the modern financial and commercial centre.
The guest rooms aren’t large, but they have plenty of character being individually decorated, with exposed wooden ceilings and antique style beds. A buffet breakfast is served beside the patio and there is a small restaurant offering French cuisine. There are also numerous eateries nearby as well as bars and shops.
The shady garden, replete with tropical foliage, is a nice place to enjoy a cocktail, and there’s a pool accessed through a rather grand arch.

“El Castillo is remote and absolutely rewarding . Our guides took us kayaking and made us a picnic from local produce and treated us like family. Owners of Victoria Hotel are fantastic. Many people never make it to El Castillo and it is so worth it ---no tourists”SF, Reading

"This was our first experience of Central America and the itinerary was spot on for us. Every place we visited held some considerable interest making it probably the best holiday for a very long time...When mentioning Nicaragua to friends and family here in the UK, every time the reaction was ' why go there'? A perception that it is dangerous and still in revolution appears to exist. Nothing could be further from reality we felt. Leon is probably still living and relying on the revolution to tell its stories to tourists but everywhere we found friendly people and that made the experience fantastic. We met some really interesting travelers from other parts of Latin America and already made good new friends. We will visit again."DRF, Stafford
Local cultures were well recognised and customs observed, especially on Ometepe where the local population were trying to maintain a traditional lifestyle while moving into the21st century.AK, Wantage
Most memorable aspect: “Many. I liked the arrangement which was a good mix of independent trip and organised travel, I was able to make more out of it than in a group travel because I was able to ask the questions of my own interest about the country and felt it was a trip tailored to my interests but making most of the time I had available.”AV, Brockwell
