We stayed 2 weeks here with another couple and the service at the pool was terrible. It was an ongoing battle to add things to our visa, taking nearly 15 minutes each time and in the end they ended up charging our friends for things that they had missed on our bill as we left early, after spending an hour...

We loved Villas de Palermo! Located a short (free shuttle!) or taxi ride away from the main area of San Juan, Villas de Palermo is a welcome escape from staying in a city centre hotel. Fully functional kitchen, living room, separate bedrooms and bathrooms on each floor make this place a great stay for families or sets of couples that... More

I have such mixed feeling about our stay at the Villas. My family and I spent the Christmas holiday here and on the one hand the place was great. The property is beautiful with amazing views and a wonderful pool. The villas themselves are also beautiful complete with central air! However, then the creepy critters come into play. As soon...

Hi Elizabeth, We are very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience. We work hard to keep the villas completely spotless, however given our location - surrounded by acres of lush landscaping, natural wild life and jungle (which most people love and even come here for), sometimes the creepy crawlers find their way inside. We're in the process... More

One bedroom, bathroom and balcony on the upper floor and kitchen, living room, terrace and another bedroom and bathroom, if you booked for more than 2 guests, on the bottom floor. Warning: Don't book... More

This is a beautiful high end property, gated, on a very pretty hill overlooking San Juan del Sur but for our family it felt over the top. Very large condominium-style, we had two bedrooms and two bathrooms for our two-night stay. But neither toilet worked properly :-( We like nice hotels but this place provided no character or charm to... More

I stayed here recently for three nights while traveling to San Juan del Sur. Its a great place if you're looking for something that is a little quieter than what you will get in the heart of town. They have a shuttle service that will take you back and forth to town in about a ten minute drive. The property... More

My Xmas gift to my family in Managua - 4 days at Palermo. Driving up to the property from the main road, there needs to be signs directing you to the entrance of the property.

I was here with family for a get away. All fifteen of us had a great experience here.
