This place is paradise! Great location by the waters edge in the middle of the jungle. An ideal getaway from the fast pace of San Juan. Friendly and helpful staff and management gave it the extra bit to push my review into the excellent range. The bar facilities will close most evenings early but a careful word to the staff... More

The place is BEAUTIFUL. The grounds are really nice and it's on a mile of beautiful empty private beach. It's great for a relaxing day and peacefulness. The whole beach has waves and you'll never compete for a surf. It's really nice for a day trip. I stayed the night and am glad I did - it was great to... More

Good surf, great beach a chilled out vibe and very nice accommodation. We had an ocean view on the bottom level and had a balcony and hammock which was great. I think all the private rooms have this set up. The rooms are simple but spacious. The only problem is that they shut the kitchen and bar at 7 from... More

The beach is nice but the hotel is not so good. The food and the room are OK but expensive. This is the only place in all Nicaragua where they include an extra tax of 7%+10%service. Very weird!!! Think twice before spend a night here...

We felt so lucky to get a room at this hotel so last minute. Our ocean view room was breathtaking. It was so spacious and clean, and had sliding screen doors with a private balcony that looked over the gardens and ocean. Oscar at the front desk was incredibly helpful and attentive to our every need, The surf was perfect... More

From the very start this place didn't win many points with me, charging people $3 per person just to travel down the road to the beach - initiatives like this are not what is needed in the country, especially just to arrive to a place of very overpriced drinks and food (two cans of beer cost us 88 cordobas, double...

So for those of you not in the know, this is where Survivor Nicaragua was filmed. You can sit at the bar on the beach and literally look about a kilometer down the beach and see where they filmed. That being said it is a terrific beach, not as isolated as one would think, it is a short drive from... More

My friends and I were here for two days of our trip. We did not stay at the hotel. It is on the beach and it is the only thing in the area. The drinks were ok, and they had water. But the food here was horrible. I would not recommend the food at all. I would try to just... More

My boyfriend and I made the mistake of visiting San Juan del Sur during the super busy Semana Santa, the week before Easter. Because of the influx of Nicaraguan visitors, hotels fill up and those that don't jack up their prices. While we had found a hotel for a great value (super clean double room for $25/night) for our first... More

Unreal beach and surf. Lots of tables and hammocks set up to lounge in the shade. Our room was pretty good. We had a private room upstairs with balcony and ocean view. Decently clean but wide open ceilings so easily can hear all your neighbors in the rooms next door. Restaurant food was okay but the kitchen and bar both... More
