    The property is located in a paradise. The cabin with a plunge pool is a must if you are considering going here. There is cero crime in the island so nothing to worry if you want to explore around the island. The staff is friendly and client oriented. My only complaint is the logistic on how they get you off the island. We were stuck for 6 hours waiting for a confirmed-panga-departure that it turned out not to be true. We could have enjoyed our room a little bit longer if the staff had solid information that transportation was on the way. My recommendation to the staff would be that the admin should be more efficient with communication between the hotel and the Nicaraguan marina, so they can rely on solid information about panga’s departure instead of relying on whatever the panga’s captain says to them. We felt like left on our own once we were at the little corn pier and the panga didn’t leave so we had to take the weekly cargo ship back to big corn. The locals were telling us that this ship wouldn’t arrive until 5:30 pm. If the locals knew there is no way that the admin didn’t know this information as well. Instead, we were left at the pier at 1200 pm, and we had to wait for 6 hours for out transportation back. We understand that this was not under normal weather conditions, but the admin should strive for better logistics, so the client won’t suffer the improvisation of getting their stay cut short due to bad weather so we would not lost our flight back to Managua.

    Double-charged for a meal at the restaurant. Did not respond to repeated email requests for a refund for double-charging. Dishonest. Avoid.

    Worst management and middle management which doesn't care about guest and have no sense of hospitality! Room view and place was really nice and here it ends. Management is one of the worst that I have ever seen. Without any filing for hospitality and treating guests. Only way to the hotel is with small boat from the village/main little dock. And on the last day at 13:00 they sit us in the boat and left us waiting for 30 minutes so that it started raining really heavily and we were sitting in a boat with our luggage. Than when we were silky wet captain arrived and took us to the village/main little dock from where Panga (shuttle boat) starts for Big Corn and left us there. But Panga didn't get permission from Navy/Water Police to start for the Big Corn due to the strong wind which was about 20 MPH and this is the limit. So they informed us that today we will not be able to reach Big Corn and that we need to cancel/postpone our flights. But this is higher force and we couldn't do anything. On this boat we were 4 couples from Yemaya and a girl member of middle management from Yemaya when she saw the situation she just escaped back to Hotel and we immediately contacted Yemaya and informed them about our situation and that we are at least 1 night without any accommodation on this small Island. We were writing e-mails and calling them but they didn't answer any e-mail and on the phone they were suddenly speaking just Spanish and they were fully booked even the fact anyone is co
