after looking at many of the more mainstream hostels in San Juan Del Sur, we stumbled across this great little place. Despite being very quiet, the rooms are all very spacious (we were in a double) and clean, equipped with an en-suite. The hotel is also fairly well located, close to the main park. Rooms come with a TV and... More

I am not one to complain nor do I feel the need to be pampered, especially in a trip to Nicaragua. However we stayed 3 nights in Encato del Sur, 2 of which were horrible. Let's start with the positive: - staff is friendly - a/c and tv are included - double rooms are big with a nice window -... More

I went there with a group of friends and we received one of the most terrible customer service treatment ever. For starters I still have bug bites all over my legs and arms. The bed was not clean, neither did they bother to clean the room in the mean time. The lady at the reception desk was quite rude and... More

My fiancee and I stayed at this hotel for one night after completing a humanitarian health clinic in the region. When we returned from dinner(1.5 hour excursion), we realized that an iPhone, ipod, cash, and our credit cards had been stolen from our locked room. The manager (perhaps owner) refused to assist us or file a police report. Even after... More

I stayed here with a tour group in a twin room. It's basically a series of rooms around a Central hallway, so it doesn't feel very homely or have anywhere to properly relax. The rooms are pretty small. There's no breakfast area. Location is fairly near the park which is quite central. GOOD POINTS - Location is ok - Air... More

The place was very nice and clean. The staff is extremely friendly. The hotel is quiet and Internet works great. It's close to beach and all restaurants, less than 5 minute walk. After looking at all the hotels online we stumbled across this one from our taxi driver and after walking around town and seeing all the hotels in person... More

This is a quiet good place, internet is good. Need to ask the room to be cleaned. relaxed atmosphere and close to all places. $20.00 is a bit pricey but is simple enough.showers are cold. For 20 USD I was expecting much more

Quite a good place, little overpriced. Power cuts did not help, but that is not the hotels fault. You also have to ask to get the room cleaned. But very relaxed owners with no pressure applied to make payments every day. Not to bad at all.

I stayed here for 4 nights over the summer while I was surfing the beaches around San Juan Del Sur. I picked this hotel because they had high functioning air conditioners and cable. Those two factors and the free internet are the positives. The negatives are: they didn't change my towel or clean the room once while I was staying... More

I planned to get across the border to Costa Rica but it was too late to do so, so I made a quick trip to San Juan del Sur. Not knowing what to expect, my taxi driver tells me this place is "muy economico." I check. $20 a night. Ummm...that's about double what I expected, but he tells me everywhere... More
