The brand new owners, Chuck and Jennings, are working hard to make this an even better place to stay in San Juan del Sur. The rooms are large with LOTS of hot water. Lots of shaded areas to sit and relax. The coffee is served nice and early and the free continental breakfast is improving. WiFi was spotty but they... More

We arrived by taxi in San Juan del Sur at the entrance to this hotel. The driver thought that this was our destination, and drove off. Actually we were staying at an Air Bnb very near. But the staff of Hoetl Pacifico helped us find our accommodations by calling our contact number. They drove us to the place and even... More

I write this as the new owners have literally been in charge for a couple of days- a very friedly couple from North Carolina. We stayed for one night as we had made plans to go to Marsella and we are leaving Marsella early to go back! A great friendly atmosphere with a mix of ages and nationalities - great... More

We've stayed in b/b and small hotels all over Nicaragua for several, and we like this one the best. It is hard to find a reasonable price with good location, a pool, AC, cable and hot water. El Pacifico has all this. It is close enough to town to walk easily but away from the noise. We never found one... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night when we were stuck in San Juan bc of the snow up north. It's tucked away in the hills and were recommended by a local. The hotel is adorable, cozy, with a colonial meets tropical vibe. 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 min to the town. The new owners were... More

Stayed here for 1 week, mid January. They managed to accommodate us last minute ( we were 8 ). Very good price for the spacious rooms and great service. The pool area with hamacs is beautiful and relaxing, plus there is a wide variety of books to choose from in the library. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back

We are currently staying here. We are here for 2 weeks. The location is great as its loud in town so it's nice to have some peace and quiet after 9-10. The owner is a German expat. Very straight to the point and he has been super nice to our whole family and helpful. This hotel is currently in transition... More

Accomodations were fine but way too far from Downtown (doesnt include shuttle as it says on the entrance). The owner/manager is very rude, treat his costumers badly (including profanity) and complains about everything. When we booked it they said it included continental breakfast but we only got 2 toasts and/or coffee with butter and jelly (only one because according to... More

The hotel was clean and nice but is way to far of the center of San Juan del Sur. They said that includes breakfast, but for them breakfast is just two pieces of bread with butter ¡thats not breakfast! Theres no restaurant as they say, for example we ask for a cup of coffee after breakfast hours and the manager... More

First of all, let me mention that I found this place on a previous visit to San Juan del Sur, and decided to come back to stay there because Clemens (the owner) was so nice to me when I discovered the place by accident. Hotel El Pacifico is located outside of town on the outskirts of San Juan del Sur,... More
