Location good, service questionable. We got stuck in our room in the morning as the door had no handle on the inside making us 1 minute ( yes really 1 minute) late for breakfast and she wouldn't serve us. We then had to buy further breakfast which ended up costing more than the room in the first place. It is... More

Bfst advertised from 7am but if your lucky you will get it after they finish cleaning past 8am then I was told I had to eat with my friend who was still sleeping and not on my own. Service zero. Also we got bothered about joining tours and they didn't really help unless they were getting something out of it.... More

The hotel is quite shabby chic but clean with really helpful staff (the son speaks really good English), and is right on the beach. Breakfast was included and was really good. The gelato place next door is incredible!

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 !
