1000000% am coming back again. I loved my surf yoga 10 day experience at Mag Rock! I stayed in a studio and the room, amenities, and ocean beach views were amazing. Super comfy bed as well with working air conditioning. I didn't end up using the air conditioning as much since it wasn't too hot while I was there.They have the best and most convenient location. 1 min walk to Mag rock beginners break, 1 min walk to some other beach breaks to left of Mag rock, then only a 10-15 min walk to Popoyo, 20-25 min walk to Playa Santana.The staff were so friendly and helpful. They really go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Just ask and they'll try and find something for you! Darling was so responsive while I was planning my trip back in the states. She really made me feel comfortable planning a solo trip to Nicaragua.When I was there, they found a truck to drive me to Playa Santana when the roads were a little harder to walk on. Darling set up a great day trip to Granada and even came with me to explore! And Angie took me exploring the local food and night scene - so fun.The yoga classes were so good, especially before and after surf sessions. They have all types of yoga and at different times. I also learned some aerial yoga from Angie who was fantastic!I surfed my best with my coach Elyin! We surfed 2x a day and spent even more hours reviewing my surf videos and discussion surf theories over lunch. He knew when and where to go to certain breaks. I came home knowing exactly what else I need to do to improve + increased confidence!See everyone soon!!!

Heaven. The prime place to go take a coffee in the morning and have the perfect view of beginners bay break and popoyo FINCA! The yoga studio is beyond beautiful and you need to see, yoga or no yoga. I was lucky to enjoy the studio everyday, in peaceful solitude and Magnific Rock are kind enough to give access to the yoga mats. Magnific rock is a peaceful experience that caters for everything you NEED in Popoyo 💜💜💜one day I will come back

J'ai adorer mon expérience au Magnific Rock !Le restaurant détient une vue absolument incroyable , en plus d'avoir des plats délicieux et un personnel très aimable. Les appartements à louer sont génial encore une fois avec la vue magnifique de l'océan . J'ai aussi dormis dans les dortoirs et c'était très propre . Il offre des cours de yoga dans l'une des plus belle salle que j'ai vu dans ma vie . je vous recommande d'en prendre avec Angie ,elle est excellente. C'est certain que je vais retourner séjourner dans cet établissement . Popoyo est définitivement ma place préférer au Nicaragua!

MagRock is truly magnificent. The staff, the food and the yoga instructors (my favorite is Aloha Yoga with Angie!!) The yoga studio is set in the clouds with exceptional views of the ocean. The resort overlooks the surfers and motivates you to get out there and ride the waves. I was there only for a week, and will for sure be visiting again. deacachimba.. !!

Mag Rock is a magicallllllll place! I stayed in a Studio room and it was a good size & the bathroom was large w/ hot water and a beautiful shower. The balcony view was amazing. My favorite part was being able to hear the waves ALL. DAY. LONG. The most glorious soundtrack to life. Food was delicious and staff was incredibly kind and helpful. There's so much to explore in the immediate area. I felt very safe during my stay. Highly, highly recommend.

El lugar me pareció increíble, la vista está increíble, la comida tiene precio/calidad, acceder al lugar es complicado si no tienes vehículo, pero pues pagar por un taxi en Rivas o esperar un bus que te deja en la entrada, sin embargo tendrás que caminar hacia el Resort, las habitaciones cuenta con AC y son super cómodas, los precios súper accesibles, cuentan con una vista al mar que quedas fascinado, la playa es increíble y limpia, puedes hacer surf. Volvería sin duda alguna.

I booked the all inclusive surf package here and it was such a great decision! I feel like I really got my moneys worth with this package. The room was lovely, AC, hot water and an incredible view of the ocean and sunset. I ate every meal at the hotel over my 6 days and everything I ate was fantastic, I was actually pleasantly surprised how delicious the food was! The daily surf sessions were great, I had the same instructor everyday which i liked, he was a great teacher and helped me a lot. The package also includes a boat trip to another surf spot only accessible by boat, this was tons of fun and such a cool experience!I looked at several options in the area before booking the surf package here, and after being in Popoyo and seeing the options in person, I really can't say enough how totally happy I am I booked with Magnific. All the staff are also so wonderful and friendly, especially Darling and Angie who are just the sweetest!

Without a doubt the best sunset location you will ever visit. 180 degree ocean views, fresh icy pina coladas, delicious menu and the beach on your doorstep...what more could you want? Magnific Rock = Paradise 🌊☀️Accommodation excellent, view from the rooms spectacular, and felt incredibly safe and well looked after by the amazing friendly team the entire time. Great spots to visit nearby including the beautiful secluded rock pools... enjoy 🤍

Incredible, this is a very special place. Accommodations are a tad rustic, but very impressive considering it's literally on a cliff over the ocean surrounded by jungle! Definitely worth a visit for surfers and yogis. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The restaurant has fresh, quality food and the best views imaginable. I would stay again in a heartbeat!

The views are truly stunning. You can watch people surfing from your bed! Staff are friendly, most speak English if you need it. It is as the name suggests a big surfer crowd, all laid back and just fine with us old folks in their midst. It sits between 2 great surf beached one great for beginners, one full of fun for the more experienced.If you are older like us walking on the beach, swimming, exploring rock pools on the Magnific Rock itself are all excellent.The food is top notch. Lost of breakfast selections, smoothies. Burgers to Lobster at lunch and dinner. I had Lobster, at $24 i expected a half a lobster, but I received 1 and a half! Cooked to perfection on the grill. I love this place and keep coming back. To top it off for an Aussie it is run by Australians and we were offered Vegemite with our toast 🙂

Darlene and the crew at Magnific Rock were incredibly courteous and so helpful, and the views and location are 10/10 - multiple waves are within walking distance and you can watch the surfers from your balcony.We had an issue with our room the first night and the staff took excellent care of us, switching rooms without any issues. They were always available for our (many) questions and needs. The yoga room is also incredible and we enjoyed all of the instructors.My wife had a surf guide, Darwin, for 2 days to go out to more advanced spots and she loved it. Overall, everyone that we interacted with was wonderful, professional, and attentive - we highly recommend staying here if you’re in Popoyo!

Un lugar para relajarse en popoyo, super tranquilo, vistas buenísimas, cómo advertencia, no encontramos restaurantes o locales aledaños, únicamente el restaurante del hotel, el cual es súper bueno, sin embargo cierra a las 8 de la noche junto con el bar, para encontrar más bares y eso hay que ir a guasacate lo cual está a unos 2km del hotel, se puede caminar eso por la playa.

Un lugar hermoso, rodeado de playas y con una espectacular vista al Océano Pacífico. El personal es de primera, con una atención esmerada y gran amabilidad. Estuvimos por el fin de semana y es un lugar que seguramente volveremos a venir. El acceso es un poco accidentado, pero se puede llegar en vehículo sin problemas. Hay piscina, bar y restaurante, con variedad de platos y bebidas. Es un poco caro, pero vale la pena. Espero lo visiten pronto.
