The howler monkeys sometimes come right among the cabins, especially early mornings. If you want to see the rainforest, this is the place to stay.

Great nature reserve, poor lodging/dining

The trails and forest at Selva Negra are outstanding. Trails are well built, with varying degrees of difficulty, in a pristine environment. I would recommend any nature lover visiting Selva Negra for a day trip. Do not take the tours, they are over-priced and not informative.

The hotel rooms are outdated and uncomfortable. The walls need to be repainted and the smell removed. The cabins may be better but I do not recommend staying in one of the hotel rooms. Also, the food is not good and VERY over priced. The wait staff seem to be unhappy and therefore service is poor.

Overall, the forest and coffee farm at Selva Negra are outstanding. Take a day to visit and go an a couple hikes. Don't waste your time lodging/eating here - there are many other better deals in the country.

    This place was a welcome paradise. It is well worth a day and a half visit. We toured the plantation and hiked in the rain forest. The food in the restaurant was delicious, the staff was attentive and friendly. I wish I could find an equally satisfying cup of coffee here in the states. We stayed in a cabana the first night and it was top rate for certain. The second night we stayed in a regular hotel room --it was more sparsely decorated but it was clean and comfortable and for the difference in price-it was worth it. I hope to return someday.

    I went to Selva Negra just this past Thanksgiving. What a amazing Place! I recommend to anyone and plan to come back.

    The place is just beautiful. I meet the owner and he was willing to chat with you for hours.

    It is a very relaxing place. Can be chilly in the cloud forest so bring some warm clothes.

    Only negative I found were that the sheets didnt seem clean. I had my own sleep sack so I didn't care. Also bring ear plugs the howler monkeys can keep you awake at night with their singing.

    Just completed our 2nd stay at Selva Negra. It was beautiful as always. An incredible place in its own right, nestled into the cloud forest, but even more impressive when you take the tour and learn how this fully operating coffee farm is managed. They produce A+ coffee. Nothing is wasted; the environment is not just protected but enhanced; and generations of people are provided jobs, education, healthy living, and so much more. And if you don't give a rip about any of that, you'll still love the place--just go and enjoy a beautiful and relaxing couple of days.

    I was at Selva Negra 6/5/07-6/12/07. It was one of the most fantastic, learning experiences I've ever had. Mausi took me on an in-depth farm tour. Selva Negra is a model for sustainable agriculture. Almost nothing is thrown away. Their composting is amazing. I can't say enough wonderful things about Mausi and Eddy Kuhl and their Selva Negra.

    Me & my Wife were there in january this year and enjoyed this place, vowed to return again this year.
    As for cathy, remember this a mountain resort not a 5 star hotel, I'm a large man 5"11 an 202 pounds and found the bed comfortable (or was it because of my companion?) anyway next time go to the hilton or crowne plaza they will pamper you but not at 50.00 a night with nature around.

    Beautiful grounds with trails to hike, lovely little lake and cool mountain air. But, the most uncomfortable bed we slept on in Nicaragua. This hotel has a wide variety of rooms and cabins to chose from -- ask to see a few before choosing one. The restaurant -- perched right beside the lake -- serves several German dishes as well as other items. The hiking trails are the best part.

Description

The Selva Negra Mountain Resort is a unique place, built in 1975 up in the mountains of Matagalpa. The resort is located on a coffee area and next to beautiful hills covered with virgin cloud-forest.

Selva Negra is attended by its owners, who are descendants of German settlers that came to this region in the 19th century. The German design can be seen in the interior of the rooms and the restaurant, where one can find many old photos, newspaper articles, tools, and other items that give an impression of how the Germans got here and became coffee growers.

The resort offers different types of lodging, each of them surrounded by nothing but nature.

  • The chalets are the most beautiful and spacious, filled with history and built in the old German style. They have room for six or 12 people.
  • The bungalows have their own front porch and can hold between two and eight people.
  • The American style hotel rooms have private bath and shared front porch.
  • The youth hostel is a good option for students. This is one large building that can accommodate up to 20 guests. Students find dorm rooms that sleep four to six people for an accessible price.

Furthermore, a variety of activities can be undertaken here. For more information about Selva Negra, visit the resort's website.

Lodging rates do not include restaurant service.
