Absolutely awesome place to visit! The cabins are so cool and they have a special cooling mechanism over your bed. The restaurant’s food is the best I had in Nicaragua. I’m a hiker and was able to take the most beautiful and challenging walks in the property. The only thing I didn’t like is the price. Is so expensive and that makes it very hard to be able to come back. I’m a local and to pay 400$+ for one night is outrageous.

Visited in February 2020. My second visit to the beautiful destination. This place is so OUTSTANINDG - right in the middle of nature in a wonderful tree-house type bungalow -- very clean beautfiul views, food is excellent, excursions are excellent. But what I find most wonderful about Morgan's Rock is the staff. Where to begin... I missed my connecting flight on my way and Jonathan arranged for pickup in Managua seemlessly - I am a solo traveler and the staff would always check on me in the case I didn't come down for dinner - Jonathan, in fact, called me when I got back to the States to see if I was okay. The staff - I want to thank Jonathan, David, Hanley, Gabriela, Bisinmark, Freddy, Nelson, Carlos, Silvia, Carmen, Juan, Elisa, Harvey (who is an expert on birds - I went bird watching with Harvey and he is so knowlegable and I learned a lot, plus saw a lot of different birds, Andy, and Frankling - and of course Andrea the manager of Morgan's Rock. There is not one negative thing I have to say about this place - I love it - love the staff as I said they went out of their way and were so friendly - never experienced such a friendly staff in all my travels! I will definately return for my third trip in Februray 2021, barring this terrible virus - I want to thank each and everyone one of the staff at Morgan's Rock for making my visit the BEST EVER!

From the moment we arrived and were greeted with fresh coconuts and cold, scented towels, we were totally wowed. Morgan's Rock is a beautifully designed ecolodge situated in a magnificent, pristeen setting -- a mile-long, crescent-shaped beach surrounded by cliffs and verdant jungle forest. The individual bungalows are jaw-dropping, with two separate levels as well as an outdoor deck. Panoramic views and tons of space, and I have never before had an in-room coffee grinder and fresh coffee beans! The setting is remote (that's the point); but there is plenty to do, and getting to and from locations outside of the property is doable. Every single thing -- food, staff, rooms, pool, beach, trails, horseback riding -- was perfection itself. The staff members were, without exception, delightful, helpful and great people.
Our third stay -- Superb beach, staff, comfort, serenity, nature

We just returned from our third stay at Morgan’s Rock. We were there in 2017 and 2018, but missed 2019. I think I reviewed this ecolodge once before, and I still think of it as one of my favorite places in the world. And here’s why: the superb setting is on a cliff above a beautiful bay on the Pacific Ocean with gorgeous sunsets; the private bungalows are very comfortable with two levels, an outdoor deck, a screened inside that is open to the breeze and sounds of the breaking waves; the king-size bed has a deliciously comfortable mattress and an air-cooled awning to deliver AC just to the bed, if you choose, so you feel like you’re living with Nature but also get a good night’s sleep; the palm-tree and tamarind-tree-lined beach is very private and has cabanas to stay out of the sun; the ocean is the perfect cooling temperature and the waves fun to play in; there is great birding right from your bungalow, from kayak in the estuary, or hiking in the forest; the staff are excellent and service impeccable; there are international travelers staying here who are interesting to talk to but if you wish to be alone that is no problem; the food is excellent; massages offered in the beach-side spa are superb, and while you are relaxing with your treatment you are serenaded with the wind in the coconut palms and the ocean waves; the overall tone of this place is serene and lo-key. We elected to spend most of our time at the beach, reading in the hammocks and playing in the waves for a week of respite and communing with Nature. However, there are lots of fun activities to do here, which we did during our first visit. Staff naturalists can take you on adventures to look for monkeys and other wildlife or horseback riding on the beach. The families who had children with them were having a great time! It is a shame that the political situation in Nicaragua has dampened tourism to the country, especially to Morgan’s Rock, which is on a 4,000-acre nature preserve in the southwest corner of the country, far from any political demonstrations, which occur mostly in the cities. We felt safe traveling here with transportation arranged by Morgan’s Rock. We were picked up in Liberia, Costa Rica, and transported across the border. (We were picked up in 2018 at Managua, which I think is fine if you have a driver.) Our three stays were all in January or February, which offered a sunshine break from winter’s gloom in the U.S.. We are thinking, however, of making our next visit during the rainy season. I’ve been to Costa Rica in August and it is a beautiful time to be in this part of the world – it is cooler, the blue sky is filled with big cumulus clouds that deliver thunderstorms for a few hours during the afternoon, and the tropical deciduous forest is lush and green. I could go into much more detail about how wonderful the management and staff are at Morgan’s Rock, but this is getting long already.
Fabulous people, food and rooms!

This secluded luxury eco resort is truly something special. It's a bit challenging to get there over extensive bumpy roads but definitely worth it. There is attention to detail with comfort items for guests while at the same time respecting their environmental commitment. The gourmet menu changes daily with offerings from their farm. Harvey and Janley and the rest of the staff are fantastic and made us feel very welcome. We can't wait to go back!
