We were a little wary having read some of the recent reviews, but we had an incredible stay in every way. The room was extremely clean, comfortable and great views. We were in Cabina Roble. The staff was very friendly and the F&B director was very accommodating. The bar service was better when he was around, a little slower when... More

We stayed 5 days and it was plesant. The hotel is very convenient to downtown. The WiFi works sometimes. They let other people pay for the use of the pool which I found it was aggravating to find seats and they were not there typical guests, I felt that I needed to keep a watchful eye on my belongings.

Great views and strong drinks. We only came here for lunch so I can't comment on the hotel but it is pretty. The food was mediocre and pricey. This was the most money we spent on food and drink the whole time we were in Nicaragua. The drinks were strong and the Bloody Mary's and Mohitos were good

I honestly expected a better hotel based on its reviews! Staff are nice and they are polite but there's lack of coordination and organization, it may be due to language barrier since I don't speak Spanish. When we first arrived the bed sheets were covered in insects, the rooms are full of ants and insects and there were couple of... More

Wonderful views of the bay from the pools, amazing gardens, beautiful houses, stunning sunsets from the terraces... Too bad the long walks needed to get something to eat. If you don't bring a car it's a very long ways upstairs and downstairs to get your meals. Most houses are up the hill and quite far from the town. Another annoying... More

Arguably the best view of the SJDS cove. We ate a late lunch at the outdoor patio restaurant with an infinity pool just for the ambiance. Food is very mediocre and overpriced. People obviously come here for the view - not service or quality of food.

We came here for lunch dinner and poolside drinks and the view here is incomparable to any others we have seen so far in Nicaragua. Expect prices to be higher than other places as this is a luxury location but we'll worth it.

Whether or not you stay at this resort (we didn't) it's a must-see destination in San Juan del Sur. The restaurant has a gorgeous view and the food we sampled was delicious. Poolside, under the shade of a thatched roof or out in the sun on a lounge chair, service is friendly and the vista is incredible. We went sailing... More

WOW, imagine owning a business that doesn't have the staff at 3:30 in the afternoon to talk to me about reservations. I only was looking for a resort where I could spend three or four days a month to get away from Managua. If nobody is available to take a reservation I can hardly imagine how little staff is available... More
