We only stayed one night but enjoyed it fully. Stayed in room #6 which is private and towards the back so very quite. The location is just steps from the beach and good restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and the honor bar was convenient. Will stay longer next time.

If you don't want to shell out the big bucks for Pelican Eyes or Morgan's Rock, stay here! This charming little inn is the best place in town. We stayed in the double cottage out back by the pool which was quiet, private, and very comfortable. The inn was built in 1872, I believe, by a German couple, and it... More

Stayed here again, 2nd time in San Juan, beautiful place. Great staff, very friendly and wonderful food. They have a beautiful pool in the courtyard too. This place is by far a great place to be and they have AC nice to have in Nicaragua. Will always remember this place.

I love this boutique hotel! The staff is extremely friendly. Being a well experienced traveler, I must say the hospitality is THE best I've ever experienced. The breakfasts are superb, great coffee, and peaceful dining atmosphere. If I wasn't such an adventure freak, I could stay by the pool side at La Posada Azul all day, in relaxed bliss! I... More

We spent two nights at La Posada Azul and had a wonderful stay! The inn is located extremely close to the beach and within easy walking distance to restaurants (We recommend El Timon, The Taco Spot, Superfrutto Gelato, and Simon Says Smoothie. Obviously we like to eat). It's also only about 4 miles round trip of a walk/hike to the... More

Stayed for two nights, this hotel is perfectly located and the staff seem very nice. Breakfast is delicious and the pool is great. There aren't really lounge chairs for the pool but I suppose people go to the beach! The rooms and bathrooms do not compare to similar hotels of the same price in other cities, but seems like they...

The hotel was great. Home cooked breakfast, helpful staff, and nice rooms. We stayed in room six so we were right off the pool....best located room in the hotel. Thank God they had a/c due to the crazy humidity. My only complaint is the water pressure in the shower. It trickled out. It was so bad some days that we... More

I stayed at La Posada Azul for 3 nights. The location couldn't be better for someone looking to get close to the downtown area and near the beach. It's very peaceful. Breakfast was delicious. The pool was really cleaned. Everyone was very friendly. I will definitely be back to stay there on my next trip to San Juan del Sur.

This place is gorgeous. The location is fantastic, being around the corner from the beach and right by all the towns restaurants and bars, but also very quiet. There are lots of areas for sitting and relaxing around the hotel, and the pool area is beautifully done. The place has lots of character, and a colonial charm to it. The... More

I'm from San Jose Costa Rica, so like to get to the ocean sometimes. SJDS is a nice town, not too touristy, have been several times before. Saw Posada Azul on last visit, it looked good so decided to try it. Very pleased with it. It has colonial charm. Great garden, to stay cool and relax, have a swim. Friendly... More
