I must say I was a bit worried about the reviews with "loud sound issues", but I experienced NONE. I recommend room #9, which is by the pool but probably because of its location most noise-resistant. I slept like a baby. The rooms were beautiful, the air-conditioning was wildly effective and the property is very well maintained. If I went... More

We spent 4 nights at the end of December. Large, clean, well appointed room with balcony overlooking the bay. Noisy on new years eve, but they warned about that when I made the reservations back in August and provided ear plugs. Staff are mostly bilingual and exceptionally helpful. And Victor makes great margaritas and macuas. This hotel would be our... More

I stayed at the Hotel Alcazar for 4days/3 nights on my recent trip to Nicaragua in Dec 2014. It is right on the waterfront road in downtown San Juan Del Sur. The manager Nelie was there when I arrived and she greeting me and gave me a run down of the area and hotel. Very pleasant lady. The accommodations were... More

Very nice hotel! Staff is very attentive and friendly. Can get a little loud on the weekends but they provide ear plugs. Great breakfast with fresh fruit, banana bread, and coffee. The margaritas were made with fresh squeezed limes! Amazing!!

Loved the modern hotel and its location. The staff was great and especially Daniel at the front desk was very helpful with sharing all the 'touristy' information and helping us out whenever needed. I'm giving this hotel 5 out of 5!

We stayed at the Alcazar Hotel in San Juan del Sur this weekend, from Saturday to Sunday, using a local Nicaraguan discount website. What can I say, the noise from near bars was terrible. It ended until 5 am the next morning. We couldn't sleep. I also suggest like the othe reviews NEVER STAY HERE. The morning after we found... More

Perfection. And the staff has been so nice an very accommodating. There were 3 of us and one ended up wanting his own room. They worked with the price. It's been a wonderful experience. Every restaurant they have recommended is delicious. Looking forward to coming back...

The location is prime, beach front. The beach is wondefull and all the staff is extremely cooperative, very friendly. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Great bed. The only negative side is that they say there is noise at night from disco next door, but when we were there everything was quiet. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Horrendous noise till after 3am. 2 nights out of three! There's the duff duff club, hostel behind and live band venue on the other side. DO NOT STAY HERE. All beautiful, great view etc but ruined until they get double glazing and serious acoustic insulation. Stay at the other end of town or any of the other good options. No... More

The hotel itself was beautifully decorated and welcoming. The staff was friendly. Additionally, the location was great, right in the center of town. However, we do have some complaints based on the price. First, the breakfast was small and unvaried. We got a piece of chocolate pound cake and a bowl of fruit. Too much sweet stuff and nothing salty.... More
