My family and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. The room was super clean and very reasonably priced. They give you a few fresh choices for your included breakfast, that is made fresh and was tasty. La Dolce Vita is only a few hundred meters from the beach and all of the action. We go to... More

Out of all our accommodations on our trip to Nicaragua, this had the least value for they price. The whole place needs a good scrub and freshen up. The reception upon arrival was met with the cook who was not very friendly. Pass on the breakfast and head to Barrios Cafe or the smoothie place around the corner. The positive... More

Great hotel - location - value! After arriving in SJDS, we looked around for hotels and walked into this hotel and asked to see the large shared room for our group. We were very happy we chose this location and that it was available as the room was clean, comfortable, had AC and a TV (which, we did not use).... More

I liked my stay here. The grounds were nice, there was a cute place to sit and read, the included breakfast was decent, they had a cute hotel cat who was always hanging around, the location was great, and they had AC. I personally would probably not stay here again, however. The rooms are very small, and the hotel is... More

Breakfast is served in the lovely courtyard with a fountain. The staff here are gorgeous people...friendly, helpful and just lovely... There's a cafe down the road that... More

Stayed here for two nights and it was great! Cute garden, great location, friendly staff and amazing little kitty. We had a great time and really enjoyed having drinks on the roof and watching sunset. I recommend this to anyone heading to SJDS and wants a great place full of character and joy.

As others wrote you do have to sit sideways on the toilet. The staff is super friendly and nice. Not so much English speaking but this their country. Bed was best ive slept on in 3 weeks traveling nicaragua. Great courtyard. Only drawback is location. Close to everything but right between the roads in and out of town. Ac cranks

My husband and I stayed here on a night when all power went off in SJDS. Jorfirths, the night manager, went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. Great attitudes from the staff, nice property, good beds. Worth a visit!

We had a great time staying here. Very friendly and helpful staff with a great location. Our room was a little small but still a great value. The hotel is located in the center of town, close to everything. The breakfast we served was very good as well. Definitely will repeat next time I'm in town
