Had a great time a Aqua Wellness resort. We stayed in a standard tree house, near the top of the resort. The rooms are all individual tree houses on a small hill, so expect to take stairs everywhere. There were 175 steps from the beach to our room! The environment is wonderful. Expect monkeys and birds to wake you up around 6am every morning. Yoga is included in your room price, 2x daily on a deck overlooking the beach. The beach is gorgeous and the water is clear and warm. There are kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and snorkeling gear you can borrow for free.
The resort is about a 25 minute walk to Playa Gigante, a small town that has a few restuarants. We went for dinner a few nights. The food at the resort is fairly expensive (standard american prices) and the alcohol is also expensive. Food at Playa Gigante was much cheaper, and the local fare is so much better than Aqua's food. Aqua is "fancy" food but the logistics of the Nicaragua don't allow for "fancy" ingredients, so it falls flat.
