Brother and I recently stayed at both locations (San Juan del sur 1.5 weeks & Managua 1 night). Enjoyed our time at both spots which are located perfectly in both cities. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Nice to have free breakfast and kitchen available for our use. Felt very safe in both locations and would highly recommend staying at... More

The staff is very friendly at Maracuya. It is decently priced, and in a great location. The hill sucks a little bit if it is raining and late at night, but VERY worth it. The view is to die for. When we visited there was a lightning storm, and we were able to see the whole ocean light up! The... More

Maracuya is a lovely place to stay at whilst in SJdS. It is not quite budget hostel, neither luxury hotel, so a good middle-ground option. It is very centrally located, but also up a bit of a hill and thus away from all the noise which can be a real issue those staying on the beach-front at night time or... More

The best thing about this hotel is the staff: they are friendly and fluent in English. The room itself is soul-less and badly decorated. That said: This is a budget hotel. It's clean. It's not on the main drag of SJDS so it escapes some of the street noise. It felt safe. It has a fridge. There's free wifi. It's... More

We stayed here 3 nights. The staff was lovely, especially Daira. She was very helpful, called places for us to set up tours, etc. Breakfast was included and was pancakes every day...nothing special, but fine for being free. There are great views of the oceans and surrounding hills from this hotel. There's also a nice breeze on the top deck,... More

Out of the hustle and bustle of the main centre of SJDS, via a steep walk up the hill. The room was nice with a small kitchen, bathroom and bedroom area with tv. Great view and nice breakfast also. One small comment was that they provided two single beds instead of a double as requested, but it was probably due... More

I stayed here for one night with three friends and we all loved it! The location is perfect - about a block away from the main streets of San Juan del Sur, so it's much quieter than some other hotels, but restaurants, bars and the beach are only a 3 minute walk away. Our room was very clean and we... More

Can't fault the location of this hotel. Set up a hill with views overlooking the town and out toward the beach, this hotel is the ideal base. The staff were lovely, as was the breakfast from the roof terrace. The rooms are spacious and clean. Highly recommend if staying in San Juan del Sur.

Maracuyá is a great little hotel set high up on a hill which overlooks all of San Juan del Sur. For a cheap price, my girlfriend and I enjoyed a quaint, breezy private room right next to the hotel's balcony. We appreciated the delicious breakfasts and an amazing view throughout our 3 nights at Maracuyá. The hotel is located near... More

Room was clean and comfortable. No hot water, but I didn't mind (or I didn't try hard enough to figure it out). Great location - in town but just far enough from the party scene. Breakfast was basic but good. An extra public shower in case you are at the beach and need to get clean after checkout. Staff was... More
