Hotel Sábalos is located on the riverbank of the San Juan River and the Sábalos River, close to the border with Costa Rica. You will find a completely ecological environment, combined with a familiar atmosphere and great sceneries. It is a great place for relaxing.
From the hotel you can undertake several types of tours in boat: to the Indio Maiz Biological Reserve, to the town and fortress of El Castillo, or to the Solentiname archipelago. You can also practice sport fishing, catching huge shad or bass.
The hotel has a conference room, which provides a great place for workshops given the tranquil and natural setting. The restaurant combines international and local cuisines, specialized in fish and lobster. The dining hall is located on a terrace above the water.
The rooms have an excellent view which enables you to enjoy the beauty of the area. All rooms have private baths and hot water. The water comes from the hotel's well, and there is also purified water for consumption.

Like others said, the food was wonderful - very fresh and delicious. Our room was small but clean and cozy. We were situated right by the river and we enjoyed the beautiful views every time of the day.
My husband went fishing with a guide from the hotel and he had a great time. He said the equipment was first-rate and he almost caught a tarpon! Even though he didn't speak Spanish and the guide didn't speak English, they still had a great time and had no problems communicating.
We also went on an excursion to El Castillo. The guide was very patient and waited for us to wander around and spend an hour at a local bar. Everyone is so friendly everywhere you go!
I wandered over into Sabalos (across the Sabalos River) and ran into Julio. Julio took me on an informal tour of the lumberyard, cocoa plants and wildlife (we saw howler monkeys). Julio was an excellent guide and also can serve as a translator for English-speaking tourists.
This hotel is the most relaxing and pampering place you can imagine (if you don't need to have a manicure or hair-dryer). I will definitely come back. My desktop picture on my computer is the river view outside of our room. I can't wait to come back!

el mejor hotel que hemos encontrado en Nicaragua. Sin perder nada de originalidad ni sabor nicaraguense. El servicio es excelente y las habitaciones algo pequenas pero limpísimas. La comida está muy buena, pescado fresco a diario, y la terraza con las hamacas desde donde disfrutar las puestas de sol, impresionante. Tambien ofrecen la posibilidad de organitar salidas a caballo por los alrededores, o visitas guiadas a la Reserva Indio-Maiz o a El Castillo aunque resultan un poco caras pero vale totalmente la pena.

An absolutely wonderful hotel. A perfect view of the river, clean rooms, English speaking excellent service, and good shaded outside sitting space.
Et glimrende hotel. Et perfekt udsyn over floden, rene værelser, glimrende engelsktalende service, og god siddeplads i skyggen udenfor.
