The customer service here is terrible. We called in advance of our arrival to upgrade our reservation to a specific suite in the hotel. When we arrived, we were told that the room was occupied and that the misunderstanding was our fault. The woman at the front desk was unapologetic about the situation and she called over a manager who... More

Have stayed there for three times. By far the best option in San Juan del Sur, neatly preserved historical building, friendly staff, good breakfast. Right in front of the sea and walking distance to most restaurants and activities. A little pricy but if you're looking for the "right" hotel and not just somewhere to stay this is the place.

Several of us stayed here at what is a very high price fir the area brooms nice, hotel itself very nice with a good location. Staff had limited English at most and we're hit and miss. Breakfast was good. Might be a good place to stay if you can get a good rate.

This boutique hotel with it's colonial feel is on the main strip in San Juan del Sur, and close to everything. The rooms are perfect with great bedding, good AC, Internet, and quiet. It's only a 5 minute walk to shopping and restaurants, and the beach is right across the street.

We only ate at the Vintage Restaurant, which is probably the closest thing to fine dining in San Juan del Sur (though dress Bermuda length shorts are still acceptable dining wear). This is a beautiful boutique hotel, formally an old house that has been renovated into a seaside hotel. Location is great being right across from the beach, has lots... More

This is a charming victorian hotel (formerly a private vacation home for one of the Samoza widows) right across the street from the beach in San Juan del Sur. While the rooms are small and the bathrooms tiny, there are abundant places to sit outside and to watch the slow-paced life in this Pacific Beach location. For us, breakfast was... More

This hotel is a grand old mansion that has been converted into a lovely hotel. Mark Twain stayed here! It is located at the quiet end of town. Rooms are nice and large and very comfortable indeed. Nice comfortable beds. We had room 101 on the ground floor which has it's own seperate entrance. Inside it felt like a little... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at this very comfortable, clean hotel. The breakfasts were outstanding, and the pool was great, even though a bit small. The beautiful bay on the Pacific Ocean is just outside your door. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in San Juan del Sur.
