Aqua Wellness Resort in Tola, Nicaragua

The tree houses at Aqua Wellness Resort serve two purposes. The first, obviously, is to inspire plenty of “I can’t believe we’re doing this!” exclamations, which you’ll catch yourself uttering as you sip champagne in an aerial plunge pool as the sun sinks into Redondo Bay. The other reason for tree living is environmental: By building above the forest floor, Aqua is minimizing its impact on a delicate ecosystem. Get up close and personal with nature – after all, it’s in your living room – and let the yoga classes, organic spa treatments, and healing hillside location work their magic.

Make friends with the neighboring families of howler monkeys who will be your complimentary alarm clock. Watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee as the creatures catch up on the night’s gossip. Spot a bright red tree frog dodge the gaze of a woodpecker. Walk along the shores of a private cove and keep an eye out for tracks from nesting sea turtles. Paddle through mangrove forests. Feast on Nicaraguan churrasco with a glass of fresh-squeezed tamarind, dragon fruit and watermelon juice.

This resort seems to assume that luxury is created by attaching hefty price tags to everything. But as we all know, this requires more: Top quality, attention to details, outstanding service... Don't get me wrong, the beach is great, the treehouses are nice. But the prices for housing, food and drinks promise a level of luxury that is not being delivered. The mattresses feel like an air mattress without air. At certain days, there were not enough sunchairs so some people had to place their towels on the sand. Many of the other sunchairs were defect or dirty. etc.

We returned to Aqua Wellness for three nights with our three teenagers. Having stayed as a couple last year, we were eager to share with our kids the great setting, and warmth of this special resort. We stayed in a luxury suite with the kids downstairs and adults in the air conditioned room upstairs. It worked out well as long as we could navigate sharing the single bathroom upstairs. The main floor had a ceiling fan but was hot for sleeping. Gladly, lot of time in the ocean and private plunge pool tired everyone out. Having a kitchenette was very convenient and allowed us to avoid eating all our meals in the onsite restaurant. Speaking of the restaurant, the service and selection were good. The food varied from good to excellent. The prices compare to North American prices which makes it very expensive compared to other options in Nicaragua. Consider taking lunch or dinner at Camino el Gigante on Playa Gigante - about 15 minute walk on a dirt road through the forest. In terms of groceries, ideally stock up in Rivas, or visit the new small store called Riveria a few minutes drive North of the resort. We bought fresh fish in the village of Playa Gigante. The highlights for members of our group were: - Horseback riding on the beaches North of the resort - Body Surfing in the waves - Morning yoga overlooking the Pacific - Plunge pool - Two boat cruises...Sunset cruise with James and Leonardo arranged through the hotel, and an afternoon catamaran from Playa Gigante The resort is quiet and laid back as is the nearby village of Playa Gigante. There are plans to further develop the property and the surrounding area. The new road is a big improvement and will likely set the stage for more development in the area - So I'd recommend getting there before things change too much!

(CONs) We stayed at Aqua after 6 days of hiking/backpacking in Granada and Ometepe. Our first impression was bad - When we arrived our room wasn't ready even though it was late in the afternoon and they even had their driver pick us up. We had a pool full of bees and they handed us bug spray. And the treehouse above us played loud music for hours. The beach was jammed packed. The front desk told us to go to restaurant to have lunch while we wait on the hotel and they charged us at the end of the stay. And we were suppose to have breakfast included everyday (3 days) we were charged for all 3 days. (PROs) Things got better the next day because Easter Break was over for the locals and the resort got really quiet. Chloe the yoga instructor is awesome! My whole family went to yoga in the mornings. The food was pretty good and it was the only hotel we stayed in Nicaragua were the prices were posted upfront vs. getting a huge bill at the end. When traveling with kids the bill tics up quick. We traveled to the school to bring school supplies. We wish we could of done more at the school. Surf lessons was well organized and on-time. There was even a photography taking my family's photos.

Although we have been several times in Aqua Wellness Resort on this occasion the reservation service has disappointed us. We made a reservation and upon arriving we found a poorly maintained suite with a pool smaller than promised and no breakfast included. It really was the opposite of our expectations.

We recently celebrated my birthday at Aqua Wellness. I had done weeks of research and even found them two years ago and finally made the decision to choose this facility for our "eco" adventure!! We are older with numerous health issues. Keeping that in mind we chose the more expensive beach front villa luxury suite to be nearer the restaurant and beach. We were a little mislead by them saying it was only a few steps down to the beach from your villa. Bare in mind you still have many steps and landings to climb to get up to this suite once you are at the beginning of the property steps. The stairs were solid and the railings large and easy to hold onto. We only stayed two days because we had done most of the tours in this area before and were their to relax and could not have climbed up and down each day. My husband did miss the first nights dinner because of the stairs getting to him. The food and drinks were very reasonably and the menu excellent. The staff and other activities were great One thing to mention is that they do add another 10% resort fee on top of your ENTIRE bill as well as all the taxes and any tipping in cash you may do. You do the math depending on your length of stay!! with that said this is a poor country so we love to give generously and bring school supplies but this is not for budget travelers or the unfit!!!!!! It was worth every penny!!!!
