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

B&B Maracuya is set far above San Juan del Sur, on a quiet street and overlooking the town, yet still only two minutes away from the beach. We loved being able to sit outside on the terrasse and watch the sunset and the city lights. The hotel sells beer and water, has a good wifi connection and does a reasonable... More

I went to Maracuya in february 2014 my girlfriend and I and we stayed 9 nights in Maracuya Bed and Breakfast. Zack is the perfect host! Really friendly staff, awesome breakfast, clean room.... Everything you want from an Hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone. It's a quiet nice place in a Nightlife city!
