Stayed for 3 days. Wanted to be in a basic but clean hotel that was a couple of notches above a surfer flop house. This met the bill. Very nice guys running it and good breakfast. Best thing about it was the very nice inner court yard that you could sit out in and read or surf the net.

I stayed here for 3 nights last weekend and I was very impressed. The staff were very friendly and you are an easy 2 blocks from the beach. The rate included breakfast as well. Look here first, it's a gem.

Nice place to stay for a couple of nights. Well located, lovely people running the hotel, and a very good breakfast. Homemade jam and butter that tasted like butter for a change. Wifi works too. Rooms just a little too small when you have two backpacks, but VERY clean and tidy.

We arrived in San Juan del Sur without a place to stay. We found this place while walking down the street (it's a bit hard to spot), and I'm glad we did. The staff was wonderful, the place was clean and comfortable, and we felt very safe. Here is what I liked about this hotel: -good wifi -cute patio -homemade... More

There is always a security guard on duty which keeps this place really calm and keeps unwanted visitors out, each morning breakfast is included and its delicious. One thing i really love about this place is it's quite but also right in town! check this place out if you get a chance!

The beds are really comfortable!!! I cannot stress how important this is. It is always extremely clean... it smells clean and it is clean! It is perfectly located too. Breakfast is good. I must say it gets very noisy in the inner patio especially during the early morning when it starts to get busy.... In terms of Price/quality it is... More

Found this place after reading all the positive reviews, thank you Tripadvisor. Homerun! The outside of the building is misleading because the interior is beautiful with an indoor courtyard with a Southwestern feel. The rooms are small but very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, only wish they had some bigger pillows. Breakfast is included with the stay. They have... More

We stayed at this hotel with a group of friends, so we pretty much had the entire hotel to ourselves (they only have six rooms - we took 5). It was a very nice hotel with comfortable beds, and a lovely central courtyard. We spent a lot of time in the courtyard. The woman who made us breakfast each morning... More

Rooms are small, clean, breakfast was delicious. Close to beach and amenities. Be prepared to be up early as it is in middle of a busy and noisy intersection. Very friendly staff and understand English.
