I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with 2 of my other girl friends from back home. The food here was SO GOOD! As you will find most of the food in San Juan is, and this was no exception! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The first night we were there, I managed to lose the key... More

Our room had AC and hot water for a pretty reasonable price! It was very clean and comfortable. The cafe is located immediately in the middle of the whole hotel; however, this didn't overly affect the noise level for us for some reason. The only issue we had was upon our arrival. The bartenders were jerks when my husband and... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel, absolutely beautiful and kind atmosphere! The price was good, but not the cheapest in San Juan del Sur. I was travelling with my teenager boy so we did not want to sleep in an hostel. The restaurant-cafe was quite noisy downstairs, but all the town is also noisy in the morning time. Very... More

I booked this Hotel through a local Nica. tour place and got a great room with a balcony ($45.00 a night). The AC was great, I had 2 Queens (maybe Doubles) the room was very large and the b/r was great with lovely hot water. The balcony was great, I'd sit out there on many balmy evenings, drink my rum...

Given the price, this is a really good value little hotel. Rooms are clean, have A/C and are nicely decorated. Location is good (although be careful when walking back from beach bars) and close to restaurants. Barrio Cafe is good, as is the pizza place across the road. Great little convenience store opposite too. Staff are helpful too.

THis was our first time to Nica, so didnt have a ton of stellar expectations on places. We opted out of staying in hostels for the $35-ish per night private rooms and glad we did, as pretty much everywhere we stayed was above our expectation. SDJS is by far the most touristy, so theres a big gap between nice and... More

I love this hotel. The entrance is located in the barrio cafe, so if you have a lot of luggage it can be a bit of an ordeal if the restraunt is packed. The lady at reception spoke some English and was very friendly. She let me check in early and we stayed on the first floor. You share wifi... More

I was eating breakfast in this hotel one morning, not thrilled with my current hostel, and I randomly asked the waiter how much it was for a private room. When I found out the price was reasonable, I immediately switched to this hotel and wasn't disappointed. The service was incredible - both in the restaurant and at the front desk.... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. The customer service was really good. We had problems with the hot water in the shower and the wifi but we reported them and they were fixed promptly. It is only 2 blocks from the beach and had a great restaurant. I was concerned there would be a lot of noise in... More
