I booked to stay for a few nights, however after one I left immediately. The owner is so rude!!! My partner asked her when breakfast finished to which she simply replied it's ok it's open. We come down for breakfast at 9:10 she advised abruptly that breakfast finished at 9? Refused to serve us and started abusing us to the... More

Owners arguing in front of customers, lack of communication between them and horrible way to approach customers, silly rules. The food was good. other than that and the location, would not have stayed there if anything else had been available.

Our room is tiny and the beds are not comfortable at all, but we do have a tiny balcony with a view of the water and a great breeze. The lady that runs the place is extremely rude! So rude, that if she hadn't made us pay immediately I would have looked elsewhere for a room.

included breakfast. was very sweet. I recommend to anyone going for a few nights to san juan del sur. very central. rooms were small but kept clean. rooms are close together so you can hear everything that's going on! but beautiful view of the ocean.

Built in 1929. it's a great old historic building built to catch the breezes (it gets hot during the day.) $20/night for a room with 3 single beds and a balcony overlooking the beach plus breakfast. Older reviews say the owner/manager was rude, but she was very pleasant and helpful to us. Rooms 2 & 5 are the best.

We got robbed our cameras, mobile phone and money in our room while we were sleeping which is crazy. The door was locked and it was inexplicaple how somebody could enter the room unless he or she had a key. As if this was not already enough, the very unfriendly lady who runs the hotel eventually accused us of having... More

Their is no discount for more people, need 4 beds it will be $48. The good thing is it is located right across the street... More

After reading the lonely plannet we decided to go for hotel Estrella. Since the one year old review the prizes had increased from 8-10$ to 25$. It's located central and has lovely balconies. BUT the service level was the worst ever. It didn't seem like The woman who was in charge had any interest in having guests. The only thing... More

A group of friends and I were in a tight spot while in San Juan, as our first hostel we were going to stay at had bed bugs, we were without a room pretty late at night. Luckily the owners of Hotel Estrella were still up and willing to let us stay. They got us all settled pretty quickly and... More

I stayed in Hotel Estrella for four nights and had the most brilliant stay. The family who run the hotel are all lovely and friendly and great for giving advice. Our room was clean with lovely crisp white walls and wooden floorboards and we had a balcony looking straight out over the beautiful beach. The building is beautiful in general... More
