The space

Hefziba Bed & Breakfast is located just on the outskirts of the town of Moyogalpa; a fifteen minute walk or a three minute mototaxi ride from the port.

Hefziba currently has seven rooms available for booking. This listing is for ROOM 2. The family room has TWO double beds (can be shared) and a sofa bed. It is equipped with AC and also has a private bathroom. NOTE: We do NOT have hot water showers. This is common in Nicaragua. Sorry =(!. Also, WiFi is available in the living room area but it is not a very strong connection so please keep in mind if you plan to work while you're here!

The room can accommodate 4 guests. All rooms include breakfast for 4 (additional breakfasts require a small additional fee paid at B&B). All rooms have two double beds meant for sharing so please inquire for bookings where sharing beds is not desired and we will do our very best to accommodate all your needs.

Message from "host": Although I spend a lot of time on Ometepe, this is not my permanent home. It belongs to my grandmother who you might get to meet if shes not in the capital city of Managua! My cousin Memo lives here permanently however, so he will always be available to you on site along with the help of our translator friend, Lester =). My family on the island does NOT speak English which is where I do my best to help them with reservations and communicating with guests before hand to assure a smooth reservation and stay. This is truly a family effort and we do hope you appreciate all the effort that goes to making you feel at home! I may be present during some stays, but not for all. I will however, be fully available to you for the booking process and in helping you make your stay as comfortable as possible :) Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding your stay or island trips that you may want to make! (eg. volcano hikes, zip lining, la Punta etc). Lastly, we ask that you please respect our property (rooms, appliances, bicycles and motorbikes that are available for rent). We do reserve the right to charge any damages to cover for repairs! We will be fair with you so please be fair to us! =). Thank you!

The neighbourhood

Moyogalpa is a very small town with many cute shops and many restaurants to choose from, most of which offer traditional Nicaraguan cuisine. It is a very safe town but we recommend travelling in pairs or groups in the evenings. Also, the main road does not have many street lights, therefore, please bring a flashlight to help guide your way!

Getting around

Ometepe does have public transportation that can take you to different parts of the island for veryyyy cheap!
If you opt out of public transportation however, there are many places that rent motorcycles and scooters for about $25-30USD a day (9am-5pm). They will ask you for your passport ID, $50USD deposit and a full tank of gas when returning the rental.
Lastly, tours are also available on Ometepe. It could range between $40-80USD per group depending on how far you'd like to explore! This will include transportation in a mini bus.

Hope that all helps!
Happy planning =)

Lester is the man, helped us out with finding everything on the island. Breakfast is amazing and they have scooter rental right at the hotel for cheaper than in the town.

Super nice and friendly people. Good breakfast, clean ok rooms w/ AC, no hot water, worn rooms but expected. Price high for location and quality. IMO this is not a nice area of Ometepe, much nicer in Santo Domingo/Santa Cruz area and would not recc to stay here unless an early ferry.

This place is more comfortable and beautiful than described. It is a great place to be at when in Ometepe. The staff are very helpful in every way and give good advice on local sightseeing. Its a short walk to most cafes and restaurants, and they help you get a bike or cycle for rent at a moment's notice. Giant hammocks, beautiful birds, delicious traditional breakfasts and comfortable rooms.

First the good: the property is well placed, about a 15 minute walk from the noisy and not-so-attractive center of town. Lester and his crew are amazing, always helpful and always smiling. The room was absolutely spotless, and the garden is fantastic. Breakfast was great. All correspondence with Cynthia was fast and friendly. The A/C is new and silent and does not blow cold air onto the bed. Now the not-so-good: this is another absentee-Airbnb, so the owner actually runs it like a hotel. So, there is no way to interact with the host (when we were there, we never met Cynthia). The internet is very, very week and we had no internet in our room. And, very importantly: the room was cleaned with a disinfectant/soap before our arrival. The smell of the soap was overpowering. Be aware that the shower is a cold-water only shower, not uncommon in Nicaragua. The smell of soap and the lack of internet are the reasons for the 3 stars.

Response from Cynthia:
Hi Tom! So happy you enjoyed your stay with us =). And yes, as much as I would love to be there on the island on a daily basis, work permits me from doing so! So I trust my family, Memo and Lester, to help keep our home as hospitable as possible! I am however, alwaysss available via Airbnb or through voice calls with Memo so we could have interacted just fine =). And as for the internet, unfortunately its also common in Nicaragua! Believe me, we've tried to have it up to North American speed standards but unfortunately, we have been unable to do so! Also, sorry about the smell! We just like keeping things super clean! Rather get a review about how clean it smells then how dirty it is.. =) Thanks again for staying with us!

The stay at Hefziba was comfortable and pleasant. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and enjoying time on the patio was a highlight. It's a bit removed from Moyogalpa (about 10-15 minutes to walk), which could be considered a good thing or not, depending on what the desire for the visit is. Overall, the staff was kind and prompt and the room was clean and suitable.

Thanks for lending us the bicycles and for letting us do our laundry. The breakfast was very nice, the room was clean! We highly recommend this place. Everything was perfetto :)

We stayed only one night at Hefziba, but it was great. This place is clean and quiet and serves a really nice breakfast. It is walking distance from the main strip of bars and restaurants and in a safe residential neighborhood. Recommend!

Hi there!

My name is Cynthia and I am from Canada/Nicaragua. I love animals, food and travelling! My family and I are from Nicaragua; a beautiful little country in Central America, full of hidden gems! It's beautiful landscape, people, and foodddd make for a perfect place for a relaxing get away for travellers. Our home in Nicaragua is on an island: Ometepe! My grandmother and cousin live in this shared home full time but since we have many rooms available, we decided to make something special of this place and share it with people around the world. That's how our Airbnb journey started; with our B&B on the beautiful Ometepe Island =)

I do my fair share of travelling as well and I'm so thankful for all the people I've had the oppurtunity to meet over the years. My favourite visit so far: Thailand!!!

Happy Travelling!
