If you like friendly staff avoid this terrible hotel. Incredibly rude and unhelpful, hard to believe they think its an appropriate way to behave considering they work in the hospitality industry. It is cheap though and the view form the balconies in the rooms are great.

This place is awesome. I come to Nicaragua to surf so I'm always on a super tight budget. Normally I stay in hostels and go super cheap but now I found this place which is way better. The value is amazing. The rooms are very simple yet very clean. The people that run it are so nice!!! If you're travelling... More

My wife and I have been considering Estrella for the many years that we've been going to San Juan del Sur. Every time we've arrived, we've convinced ourselves that for a couple of bucks cheaper, we can stay in a hostel with an awesome rooftop bar or small pool, so who cares if you have to sleep in a dorm....

When I arrived in San Juan del Sur, I had no idea where I wanted to stay. I was traveling with one other girl and we were originally going to look for a hostel, most of which are 6-10 dollars for a dorm. We ended up getting a private room in Hotel Estrella with a balcony and 3 beds for... More

Place is infested with bed bugs. Covered our legs and back with bites. Not only that but the staff are very very rude and unhelpful ... they would rather sit around doing nothing that serve us breakfast 5 min past the breakfast time. We tried to make our own when we saw another sign that said we could use the... More

I staid there for 3 nights ! Traditional hotel situated in the main avenue. Showers and WC clean. My room was really typical but I really loved it ! Breakfast : choice between nicaraguan breakfast, pancakes or granola and yoghurt and fruit !

Stayed for three nights, didn't pre-book, basic hotel with OK showers. Right on the beach front. Good breakfast, you get what you pay for. Good place to use as a base for exploring more of the area. Really good ice-cream place next door that opens in the evening.

Hotel Estrella is a great little place to stay. It's a mix between hotel meets hostel. All rooms are private with any number of beds available in them, it's hostel dorm room priced and all rooms have a balcony that allow you views of the bay along with its gorgeous sunsets. The bathrooms are shared and at the bottom of... More

We had a room at the front wich was very nice as the view is amazing. However the room was very small and basic. We only had two separated beds (we are a couple), a table and two chairs. The street was quite noisy at night. The bathroom is downstairs so it was an effort to get there. The included... More

We paid 25$USD each to go snorkelling but we couldn't because the visibility was less than a meter. Everywhere else they would have advised you do to something else or to wait for the next day... I tried to explain it nicely to the guy but it didn't work...so basically we paid for something we couldn't do. What a rip... More
