Very clean rooms with fan and air condition. Fantastic hosts who are always helpful and asking if everything is ok. You can borrow beach towels which is great because then you avoid sandy towels in your suitcase when you go home. Nica breakfast is included and you can also make additions such as french toast, pancakes, etc. Perfect hotel for...

If you're looking for a hotel over a hostel this is the place! The small community feel of the island infects all the visitors and you're sure to make friends while maintaining all your comfort and privacy. The rooms are clean, the food is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. On top of all that it's sooo conveniently...

During the slow season I was able to rent a monthly room at Sunshine hotel . I lived here for six months in total and it was absolutely wonderful. Besides the obvious - great location, air conditioning, wifi , there were so many things that kept me here . The staff is extremely accommodating and the management went above and...

I almost never write reviews, but Sunshine deserves one. Lisa, Paul and Doug are quite simply the best hosts ever. Always asking if guests need anything, always bending over backwards to ensure everyone is happy and probably some of nicest people I have ever met. This is a pretty remote island, so don't expect luxury, but this is easily the...

Doug meet us as we arrived on the panga and had our bags brought too our rooms. He gave us a tour of the grounds and hotel amenities. A "tipico" Nicaraguan breakfast is included.

This was our 2nd time at Sunshine and it was even better than the first, as they now have new hosts/managers who have now added breakfast included, as well as in the rooms little touches like flowers on table and "folded towel art" on bed. By no means is this a fancy, 5 star hotel but its the best hotel...
