Excellent place to stay.

We had such a wonderful time at Magnific Rock and highly recommended it. The views are breathtaking... the best we’ve seen in Nicaragua. The staff were all very friendly and the owners went out of their way to show us around the area and make us feel at home. The food was delicious, the room was clean, the beach was within walking distance - everything was really enjoyable. We actually extended our stay! We don’t have one bad thing to say about Magnific Rock. It was quiet, considering that the political situation in Nicaragua has put a lot of people off, but we didn’t find it affected us at all and wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

The Magnific Rock Hotel and their staff were excellent. The view was one of a kind and our room took full advantage of it. The beaches were awesome and yes I said Beaches one on each side of the hotel. The restaurant had great food and a wide variety and the staff were very friendly,helpful and attentive.We can't wait to return the village of Popoyo was great but the Beaches were superb we walked for a mile with the ocean on one side and jungle on the other.We saw birds and heard the crashing surf but we were all by ourselves it was wonderful. Thank You Magnific Rock Popoyo
