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 🤍

Muy bonito lugar, la vista es hermosa. Solo como recomendación, no vayan en vehiculo SEDAN, de preferencia camioneta, porque una parte del recorrido es un poco pedregoso nada más, el resto es un 100.

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.

I'm not even sure where to begin with this review... I've been here for a week and I don't ever want to leave...Easily the best view in Popoyo...I had something different off the menu everyday and the food was all on point served by a very friendly staff that was very helpful and patient with my lack of Spanish communication.The room are absolutely amazing, well kept with SPECTACTULAR views of beginners bay and the outer reef of Popoyo.If you're looking for a Nicaragua Surf Resort to relax, unwind and surf some world famous breaks, look no further than Magnific Rock.
