Hotel is good, clean, close to the beach. Breakfast is pretty simple, but it's fine. The only bad thing is that there were geckos (or maybe other animals) living above the ceiling tiles, so we could hear them at night. Hotel is a short walk to the beach and city center. We recommend eating at the local market like the... More

We arrived in SJDS with no reservation. We had an idea where we wanted to stay and when we arrived to our original place we were not impressed. We asked our cab driver where we should go and he brought us to Gran Oceano. This place had been recommended to me on TA but their website did not look good.... More

Guy at the front, seemed like he was going to rob us when weren't looking. Room was small and not very clean. Service in the restaurant sucked! We were going to stay 2 nights, but luckly found a better place to stay the second night....which was cheaper too....place to stay is at cafe barrio/hotel azul...cheaper, clean, and service was amazing!

There was a leak coming from the toilet that would not stop despite repeated pleas to management. Water pooled in the bathroom and ran out into the sleeping area requiring us to keep suitcases off the ground. Would have been nice if they'd have given us another room or fixed the leak.

Booking - we called them by phone for a last minute stay as we were already in Nicaragua. They only speak Spanish so you need to speak a bit of the language. THAT is one of the beautiful things about this town ! Very little English so it feel authentic and gringo aspect is minimal so far ... may it... More

I stayed at the hotel and found the staff very pleasant. The rooms were cleaned daily and very comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel. While I was there the restaurant being constructed, the work was not disturbing at anytime.

This place was wonderful. The service was great especially to my mother. She in her 70's and stayed behind while my husband and I went to the beaches. They were very helpful to her even checking in on her and going out to get her food during the day. Hotel is lovely and right around the corner from everything. The... More
