Stay on your own island!
El Recedo is a family-owned private island situated among the Islets of Granada, Nicaragua. It is offered for vacation rental and has two spacious suites -- each with a maximum occupancy of 4 persons. The suites are offered separately and the island can be obtained exclusively when renting both suites simultaneously.  The island is managed by Hotel La Polvora.
