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

- Good value for a secluded beach. Its the only place to stay in Hermosa. Dont expect a resort, your not paying for that here. - Beautiful secluded beach - Big area with loads of nice hangout places, hammocks etc. - Great surfing for begginers. Only a couple of people out in the waves early morning and late evening before... More

This Hotel was really disappointing, after reading great reviews and a ridiculous price for Nicaragua ($20 shared dorm room price) my friends and i slept terribly. Upon arrival the sheets were stained with some animal carcasses hanging in the mosquito nets, which in hindsight should have been a tip off. One of my friends got a terrible case of bed... More

We loved the idea of staying in the mountains near the beach. That part was very accurately protrayed and lovely. The cabins are extremely rustic and there are zero frills in the room. You will have a king sized bed with mosquito netting- which is very very imporant there. Cold water in the shower- to be expected. I could see... More

We did not stay here but came three days for the waves. Great staff, good amount of shade options, which are too far between in Nicaragua. Surprisingly excellent food and cheap. Lobster tails, garlic shrimp, chicken wings. All really good. And a good bar to boot.

This place is amazing! Its one of the most beautiful beaches i have ever visited and the waves are consistent and hallow, just perfect for surfers of any level. This hotel is the only one at the beach, playa hermosa, which means that you have the waves all to yourself before and after the shuttles arrive from san Juan del... More

The hotel sits on the most beautiful beach I have ever seen on the Pacific. The water was clear down to about 8 feet and had an emerald tint to it. It's in the middle of a national park and there's nothing but deserted beach and trees around so there's not much to do here but that's the point. I... More

Stayed with my family of 4 in one of the ocean-view suites. Truly amazing beach and awesome to be able to check the surf right from your hotel room. The beds are comfortable and bathrooms decent for such a rustic out of the way place. The kids were psyched to walk out the door and hit the beach. At first,... More
