La Isleta Espino is one of the coolest places we have ever visited (and we have travelled a lot)! The service, food, location, drinks, and the experience as a whole were all top notch. Looking forward to coming back, and hopefully soon.

Everything was very well organized! We were promptly picked up by boat and then greeted with mango smoothies as soon as we stepped foot on the island! The design, food and service was world class, and plenty of activities like kayaking and massages kept us entertained. Also very affordable I would recommend this place to anyone

What a lovely stay at isleta el espino! The service and staff were very attentive. There was free pick up from a local port. The food and drinks were delicious and not nearly as expensive as we expected. Although there are some activities that you can pay for, we loved the free kayaks. The room was clean, comfortable and felt very private. Perfect for a relaxing, intimate break! We only spent 2 nights there, a 3rd would have been very welcomed.

Isleta El Espino was above any expectations! The island is more amazing than the pictures (if even possible), the staff is adorable, the rooms, pool and facilities are delightful. We have had an unforgettable week, and we were very sad to leave. If you ever get a chance to stay at El Espino, don't miss it, it's a very special place. We left our heart there, and cannot thank enough Juanita, Franklin, Sergio, Judith, Saschia, Larri and all the others. We hope to come back soon!

El Espino is absolutely amazing. The staff is over the top helpful, friendly and kind. It's the perfect relaxing retreat with beautiful views and a calming vibe. We were only able to stay for 1 night sadly, but easily could have stayed for more and will for sure be planning another trip back. The accommodations were very nice and the food was delicious across the board, not to mention, the amazing drinks. They also helped us arrange transportation to and from, which was a huge help! During our short stay, the staff arranged for yoga and a massage on short notice with a smile on their faces. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing few days! Added bonus, it rains mangos on the little island, which make for great snacks!

This was th perfect place for my boyfriend and I to kick off our stay in Nicaragua. El Espino is magical and the staff is charming. We spent our days swimming, kayaking, stretching on the yoga deck, and enjoying the delicious food prepared by Espino's chefs. An extra surprise were the boatloads of fresh mangos dropping from the trees on the property.
