a new,clean and safe place not too far from wherever you want to go in San Juan. There's no pool but a nice patio to sit with friends and enjoy a drink.The hotel has a "tower" from where you have a great view over town and a little terrace to relax after a great day on the beach

The Royal Chateau Hotel is a good choice for travelers who want to be close to the beach, in the heart of San Juan Del Sur, but away from noise. The staff is helpful, the rooms are clean - but small. If your looking for a lot of amenities, this is not the place to be.

This is a newish property about 2 blocks (500 metres) away from the beach. It takes about 7 mins to get there. The rooms are clean, each with 2 double beds. The housekeeping and hotel staff are quite proactive and nice. They serve a basic breakfast with 3 or 4 combinations. Quite adequate for me. I think the price should... More

This hotel is an ideal location for San Juan Del Sur - close enough to the action, yet a good distance away so you can get some peace and quiet. The room came with a big shower with warm water, AC plus two fans, and a strong and consistent WiFi connection. As with many places in SJDS, the staff has... More

when we booked a room we were thinking this is a great hotel. It wasn't so, the room was a bit dirty, not cleaned up everyday if you didn't ask it, breakfast was poor and after that you was more hungry, staff wasn't helpful and there was only one who spoke English.

Location of this hotel is excellent, slightly off the main street which makes it a fair bit quieter at night, but still a simple walk to any bars and restaurants in town. Numerous reviews here talk about thin walks and too much noise, however we did not experience that at all. The room was fairly clean, WIFI worked well, A/C... More

Stayed a couple of nights and had no complaints. Cheap room, aircon and fan, en-suite with shower that worked and breakfast included. Good location for shops and beach. Several good restaurants nearby. Excellent value if you just want a cheap, clean, comfortable room. Recommended

After a month of feeling ripped off in the hotels in Costa Rica and Panama, Hotel Royal Chateau is refreshing. Our room is clean (and cleaned daily), the shower works and so does the air con. We are a few blocks from the shore, but it is an easy 5 minute walk, besides it gets rather noisy farther toward the... More
