Background: As part of a 3-week volcano trek across Central America, our tour group stayed for a few days in this sleepy fishing village of San Juan del Sur. PROS: Location... location... location is its best asset. It is one of the few hotels that is actually in San Juan del Sur. (In fact, the Top 6 ranked hotels in... More

This was a good choice for the event, but far from the beach and event activities. The ambiance is nice but it is a bit old. Nice to have secure parking and not have to leave vehicles on the street. Breakfast is ok with a couple of choices.

Stayed here one night before heading to our rental. We liked the fact the parking was right in front of the building in a gated area. Rooms are basic, nothing special but have AC which was nice after a log day of travel. Staff were nice, really nothing to complain about.

PROs: The parking is just outside the rooms complex, which is built around the parking. The hote and parking is safe, having somebody 24 hours for security. The rooms are just about okay, small, but come with airconditioning. The staff is helpful. It was possible to cancel one reserved night without payment, which was really nice. CONs: For the price...

I stayed for 2 nights, downstairs room. Location is good - quiet and an easy walk to the beach and downtown. My room was clean, but not comfortable, and in need of updating. The staff were friendly, most of the time! Overall value for money was average.

We payed a little more for this hotel than other accommodations in SJDS. Just under $30 each for the two of us per night ($56 US total). However, we were happy to pay so much if it meant having hot water, AC, and privacy. Because of the AC, there were no bugs (save for one spider). The room was very... More

This by far looked like the nicest place to stay in the city. The place was clean, had hot water, free breakfast, and a friendly staff. Whatever is behind the hotel was extremely noisy and it was hard to sleep.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in middle January. The hotel was great value and we were happy we stayed there. $35/night private room with bathroom. Located in the Center of town (off the beach, but safe), it was conveniently located for food and other supplies. Not much atmosphere as most other guests were couples and Middle... More

This place worked out perfectly for us. Booked the day of and the price was right for a one night stay. Our room was simple but the outdoor area is decorated nicely. The free breakfast is adequate.
