Punta Teonoste Aug 07, 2014
Driving down the coastal dirt road we got to the Punta Teonoste, arguably the nicest hotel in the area (there is another super luxurious hotel close by over the few hills, but it is not cool at all). Location is in the middle of nowhere, but I think that they are still part of Tola city area. As every other place in the area, there is a gate on the road and armed guard looking over the entrance. Few other guards are constantly walking around the property keeping security on high level. I think that whole beach and the valley coming to the sea are owned by hotel therefore beach is very private and there is no one around aside of people that are staying in hotel.
Hotel is designed very nicely and the most prominent building is club house/ restaurant / reception building. I love the way they made it look super simple from outside using mostly natural building materials and making sure that everything blends into environment. When you approach the complex, you will see high straw roofs that are much higher than surrounding brush and threes. Most of the roads are dirt or stone covered which also works with closer to the nature feeling.
Main building is almost all under one roof, and I am talking about massive structure made in absolutely beautiful style with wooden beams spreading all over. I have never seen such a large area covered with one roof and I am so happy to see that this way of building works in the area that can have strong winds. Whole building is filled with incredible and rare art pieces. Whoever was designing it can do my place any time and for any money they require heheh
You won’t see many people in this place because there is not too many rooms for rent and area is more for seclusion and enjoyment in peace. There is large and nice pool in the front of the club house, just short run from the ocean so you can mix and match the water you like. Sand can be VERY hot and beach has some rip currents so I kind of gravitated towards the pool. Seclusion means no places to go to, so food and drinks are super overpriced. Saying that, this hotel is STUPID EXPENSIVE for the service and comfort that you receive, but maybe you don’t care.
Our cabana was perfect for me in every way. There are two floors and on the bottom we had large bed and AC. Rest of the building was more or less open especially to mosquitoes and other flying stuff. Second floor definitely requires bed nets and you should use it even if there is strong breeze in the place. Building is absolutely gorgeous and it kept me in awe every time I was in. Bathroom and shower are a bit tricky at night due to insects but aside of that perfect in every way! They are outside, without roof, just behind the wall, so at night you will have a bit of swarm while watching stars on your throne…
I loved it and I think that owners figured out the best way to give fantastic experience, but it is too expensive (let alone that we are in Nicaragua) to come back again…
