Clean, cost effective, lovely friendly staff and slap bang in the middle of SJDS so you are within arms reach of all amenities. If there is a possible negative it would be that it's so central that sleeping in any later than 8am is impossible but this is hardly the fault of the hotel so i have not deducted from... More

Excellent location close to the beach and a few seconds stroll away from the many restaurants and bars. The hotel itself has a pretty outdoor courtyard in the middle and two indoor seating areas to sit and relax. Breakfast was delicious and there were four options to choose from, all included in the room rate. I would recommend trying the... More

Great place to stay! There´s a big room that fits 6, air conditioning works great. I left my cell phone charger there on accident, they kept it for me until I came back the following week. Also, great breakfast.

As my friend and I arrived at this place after a series of unfornate events they treated us soooo nice!!! We were really under a lot of stress from a previous hotel experience and they offered us a courtesy drink and made an upgrade on our bedroom due to really bad experience we were having in San Juan....

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
