    “All inclusive? ”

    When booking remember when they mention this is an "all inclusive" resort. They mean it is all inclusive from about 10am to 7pm. - you could say, it is all inclusive when the resort decides it should be inclusive. Before and after these hours it will be difficult to find a drink or soda. Wifi was free for me, but I had to login many times as the system will log you out. - wifi coverage was good, but it faded towards the buffet restaurant. The shows were fun, but nothing like a show I would expect to find at a resort. Still, they were interesting and the preformers really put an effort into entertaining the crowd. In all it was a great time. Just don't go with the expectation of staying at a North American or European all inclusive resort. staff was friendly and always had a smile.

    “An Oasis on the Pacific”

    This year I wanted to try something different. I did a lot of Caribbean islands, different parts of Mexico and a few Central American countries ( Panama and Costa Rica). This time, my choice went toward a place that has it all: sunshine, warm weather, lakes, volcanos, jungles, colonial cities and of course, beaches. I found all that and much more in Nicaragua. My mom and I left for 2 weeks on February the 5th. We opted for the only all inclusive hotel on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua: the Barceló Montelimar Beach Hotel and Casino. We were not disappointed. It is located 1 hour and a half from Managua airport and capital. The bus ride from the airport to the hotel is great because you get to see mountains, lakes and volcanos. When boarding the bus you are given your hotel room keys and other practical documents. On arrival at the lobby, people are greeted with traditional music and a refreshing rum punch. With room keys already in hand, check-in is really fast and luggages are delivered directly to the rooms. This Barceló hotel is a hidden gem. The outside scenery is a feast for the eyes. In this Oasis, you will be surrounded by lush vegetation, flowers and birds everywhere. Rooms/bungalows: accommodation is of 2 types. Hotel rooms in the main building and lovely bungalows spread out all over the lush property. My mom and I opted for 2 rooms in the main building where you also find the lobby. It is centrally located near the main swimming pool, the buffet restaurant on the beach and the casino and a la carte restaurants on a hilltop overlooking the ocean. The rooms are of good size and all of them have a balcony from a small distance the main swimming pool. The view is gorgeous and if you are lucky enough to be on the last floor you also have a glimpse of the Pacific. On the colorful rooms you will find all the usual amenities. The room service is top notch and everything is left spotless clean everyday. Pool/Beach: the 2 are spectacular in their own ways. First of all, the main pool is huge with a snack bar and a pool bar in the middle. This pool is great for swimming and there are a lot of palapas and lounging chairs around it. What I like about it is that it’s surrounded by a wall of trees, palm trees and flowers giving it an ambiance of paradise. As for the beach, what could I say that hasn’t been already said in other reviews.....Wow, Wow, Wow. It’s a long stretch of light beige sand bordered by a thick row of lush green palm trees. You feel like Robinson Crusoe. The water is warm and nice for boogie boarding because at times the waves are quite strong. It’s a great beach for walking but don’t forget your sand shoes because in the afternoon, the sand becomes extremely hot. Another thing worth mentioning is that sunsets are spectacular. Don’t forget your camera. Buffet/a la carte restaurants: I found food to be of good quality and very tasteful. At the buffet restaurant near the beach, I never had difficulty finding something delicious to eat for breakfast, lunch or supper. Fruits are amazing. As for the a la carte restaurants, where supper is served at night if you book in advance, the culinary experience is great. I especially loved the seafood and Japanese a la carte restaurants. Service is fast and efficient too. Excursions: Going to Nicaragua without visiting the country is like going to the Caribbean without going to the beach. The hotel offers a great choice of full day or half day excursions. My mom and I did 4 full day excursions. If you want to do less, don’t;t miss the excursion to the colonial city of Granada and the excursion to Masaya volcano, a must. I even swam in the Apoyo crater lake caldera. If you want more frills and thrills, you could even do volcano boarding and descend the slopes of Cero Negro Volcano near the colonial city of Leon. In conclusion, Barceló Montelimar Beach hotel and casino is a fabulous Oasis on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. It’s the perfect choice for some great relaxing vacation time. Just be prepared for a beautiful lush property with a stunning beach !

    “Very nice and - some inconveniences”

    The food was excellent and the accommodations were also excellent. We were in one of the cottages so there was little noise and the area was nice lush lush. The first night, the food was the best I've ever had at a resort but it became more mundane. Good, but not great. One complaint is that all of the bars closed at seven with the exception of the bars way up the hill on near the casino and entertainment. Even if I don't drink (which I do), the bhars provide a place to meet people and that is one of the great things about going to a resort. This resort didn't provide that opportunity. Nicaragua has some great scenes and adventure but don't fall for the touristy places that the tours bring you to. Outside or near the edge of the "market" they bring you to, there always seems to be a local place that is not as shiny but offers better deals and an opportunity to support the local economy. We found a place that required a pail of water from outside to flush the toilet but if there's always more appropriate facilities nearby and we felt much more welcome than the tourist places. Besides, even including the flushless toilets, the place was very clean and pleasant. Something we could probably all learn in terms of making the best of what we have. The difference between those who have and those who do not was a little disturbing but its something we need to be aware of.

    “Beautiful and relaxed trip in paradise”

    We spent two weeks at the Barceló Montilemar March 5-19. The resort is a bit of a drive from the attractions, so we only did one excursion. The beach and pools are beautiful and during the week not crowded at all. The a la cartes and casino are at the top of the hill and a bit of a walk, but if you call a shuttle bus, they’ll pick you up and drop you off and are usually quite prompt. The food was good and plentiful, even if it did seem to repeat a little. That being said, if you went hungry it was your own fault. The staff is a great asset to the resort, everyone was friendly and helpful. Margarita, Maria, and Miriana always kept our cups full, Jeffrey at the snack bar made sure we never were hungry, Yocelin, Alicia, and Rogelia kept us entertained at the casino, and last but not least Franklin made sure we got to where we needed to go on the shuttle bus. A tip is always appreciated for service of any kind, and we were dismayed to see so few given. A frozen bottle of water given to any of the security guards watching over the resort was always welcomed with a smile. Eric and Joel from Transat were easy to find, extremely helpful, and always greeted you with a smile. They were possibly the best reps we’ve ever had! Some basic Spanish goes a long way, but with smiles and hand gestures we were usually understood. A suggestion for the resort would be some sort of sunshade directly on the beach. If you stay back in the palms you can’t watch anything going on down the beach. The waves are fun to play in and the boogie boards are free to use… so much fun! Another suggestion would have been a meat carving station at supper buffet, and there was one before we left. It would be nice if one of the bars below were open later than 7pm and one night it was, but no one knew it would be, until returning from the casino above. If you’re going into Masachapa, its well worth the money to have one of the rickshaws take you. We walked in one day and its hot much farther than it looks. Some drivers actually give a tour, some do not. Eric speaks some English and helped us out with travel arrangements over the phone, thanks again Eric! Hotel check-in at the airport worked really well, and the bags were delivered to your room shortly after your arrival. Our bungalow (317) was a bit of a walk from everything, but it was clean, everything worked, and there was lots of hot water pressure. Housekeeping was spotless and though you might not have towels when you returned after lunch, they had always arrived in time to shower for supper. I’d suggest brining some Deep Woods Off with you, those little red ants are pesky but not a problem. If you’re looking for a Caribbean party atmosphere, this resort is not for you. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful location, the Barceló is the place for you! If you’re looking for souvenirs, walk down the beach to the last hut and visit Roberto, Marisol, and Yadira and tell the Roberta sent you. If you want to bring home rum, the cheapest place is at the duty free in the airport.

    “Group Trip”

    The stay at the resort was awesome. The views, the balcony from the room as we stayed in the main building, the customer service since one arrives to the lobby to the breakfast, the room service and everything else. Felt right at home, the rooms were very clean and roomy.
