Overall a good value at $150/night for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa. We spent two nights here, and the electricity was out both days during the day which was annoying, but not in the hotel's control. The hotel didn't tell us though when we first checked in. We had several large insects (spiders, grasshoppers) and geckos in our villa. There... More

El Timon is absolutely sensational! We had a dinner on the terrace with champagne. Started with a great soup, which is unusual by itself in Nicaragua. We ordered different dishes and every one was exceptional. The view of the city as the sun sets just beside the statue of Jesus is magnificent. The lit pool gives an added mood enhancement.... More

3.5 (but that's not an option) I'm torn. Let me preface this review by saying that I have worked in the hotel industry for the past 12 years.

The villas provided a wonderful place to stay in San Juan del Sur. As all the other reviews have noted, the views are beautiful. You're provided with all the basics: a couple couches, beds, decent showers, and a full kitchen (which we pretty much only used for booze). The couches were not particularly comfortable, especially considering the cushions aren't attached... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful! I loved that instead of a regular hotel room, each guest has a whole villa for themselves. These villas are gorgeous, clean, and spacious. I also enjoyed the fact that this hotel is not in the middle of the city, which provided for a quieter vacation. Staff was very friendly. Nothing to complain about! Can't... More

Great hotel for the price. Very cleaned villa, i suggest you take the deluxe villa, more stuff for cookings and much more decorated! Staff that works at the reception and the security are very friendly but the womend at the reception are not. Manager always hidding from clients! Restaurant is good but not to many choices.

Let me preface this review by mentioning I have over 20 years experience in the hotel and restaurant industry. So I'm very reticent to slag a property for minor issues. I took offence to some of the one star reviews on Trip Advisor. They were petulant and childish and didn't take into account some of the fantastic attributes of Palermo.... More

The staff here is the best! Everyone has been so helpful. It's nice to be a out of the "goings on" in town, yet close enough to walk in (about a 30 min walk, downhill) and a $2 US ride back to the Villa. Food is great, pool is relaxing. Everything has been clean and well cared for, both the... More

This was one of the nicest resorts i've ever stayed at. They picked us up at the Nicaragua border and it took more time than we thought but our driver waited for 2 1/2 hrs. We were sure he wouldn't be there but he was and we were soo happy!!! The rooms, pool, transportation, staff, everything was amazing!!
