“You stay with a family and they treat you like family!”

I stayed here for three nights with my eighteen year old daughter and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The most important reason is you are actually staying with a Nicaraguan family that resides on Ometepe. You get a unique insight in to the everyday life of a family and their household. Its wonderful to see their extended family living on the property and neighbors stopping by to say hello or dropping off other fruits and vegetables. Wonderful to be woken up by their roosters and the howlers across the way.They treat you like family. By far the best food we had on the island that is cooked by the mother. My daughter is a vegan and they were wonderful to accommodate. We enjoyed our location about 3 miles out from Altagracia. This is a great access point for the bus to visit any point on the island. It was a short bus ride to some of the beaches and other restaurants for a change of pace. Marc, the son in law and very personable, runs the show and was very patient and immediately responded to all my gringo questions.He can set up any tours you need and arranged an ATV for us. Remember this is Ometepe and not a luxury hotel with wait staff in which to fill any need anytime. Beer and drinks are available anytime on the property. It was the best living arrangements during our trip. They are a wonderful family and truly reflect the graciousness, warmth and loving nature of the people from Nicaragua.

“Mark is an incredible host.”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The installation were very basic, but for 10$ we weren't expecting more. The thing that made our stay enjoyable was Mark, the host. He would always help us whenever we'd need advices, give us extra sanitory equipements after it being stolen, and even have fun and sit with us at night. I had a hard time on ometepe having my bag stolen, but hospedaje las peñitas leaves me with a good taste of this island.
