Beautiful property but a few areas for improvement
Recently returned from a very relaxing stay at Aqua. The property is truly stunning, and even though its not completely an eco-resort, they make a lot of accommodations to minimize the impact on the local environment. However, as more of a mid-range traveler who stayed in a few lower-key places around Nicaragua prior to going to Aqua, I was a bit shocked by the prices of food and activities the resort was charging. When other reviewers say "American" prices, be prepared for upscale American prices ($8 cocktails, $20+ dinner entrees). They have to make money somehow, but if you're looking to save a few dollars, consider taking the 15 minute walk over to Playa Gigante for a few alternatives. After dark (sunset is at 6 pm), there's no place to go except the restaurant/bar area, or back to your room, which ours had rather dark lighting. The staff were all very attentive and make an effort to learn your name, but with several staff, it felt a bit forced. Anyway, I'm probably not the kind of traveler who this resort is really trying to appeal to, but I did enjoy the calmness and beauty of the property, despite a few small drawbacks.

Speechless!!!
This hotel was amazing. The pictures on the web don't do it justice, it is just jaw-dropping beautiful. The location is ideal for a total relaxation vacation. And the nature you are exposed to is also a plus. Definitely recommend to anyone, I do think that it is mainly aimed at adults as there are not many amenities aimed for kids, but still amazing.

Tree House Village
I love eco-friendly lodgings. This one is built along a steep mountainside affording amazing views with the forest right in your face and the sound of waves coming from the sea below. However, I was given a room near the top and the restaurant was beachside. There were 196 steps, yes I counted them, between my unit and the beach and amenities. They really should have asked if I minded climbing the equivalent of 8 flights of steps every time I want to return to my room. There is eco-sensitivity and there is fitness, but lets not forget hospitality by asking the guest for their preference.

Forest and beach paradise
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to take some time off to reconnect and enjoy PARADISE. Incredible views, cozy rooms, excellent food and service, the location is beautiful. We had monkeys outside our windows. The only thing to consider for anyone with physical condition is there are many stairs to and from the beach and restaurant. I had an amazing time!
