I just returned from 9 wonderful nights at El Jardin. I can't say enough about what a unique and special place El Jardin is. First there's the million dollar view, drop dead gorgous. Then there is the family atmosphere, the attentive staff, Tim's to die for steak with bernaise, (I had it 3 times!!) it's really that good. My friend... More

The setting a few miles north of town was beautiful. You have a perfect view of an undeveloped bay. The hotel is a great value. I loved the pool and just sitting on the terrace drinking wine and watching the sun set. Tim's steak with bernaise sauce was one of the best meals of my trip. Tim and Delphine were... More

My friend, Kathy, and I stayed here for 9 nights and it was a wonderful experience. We loved the friendly, easy going ambience of the place and really felt it was more like visiting with friends than just being one of the masses at a large hotel. Tim and Delphine were very welcoming, and their three staff members were so... More

Stayed at El Jardin for 6 nights in mid-September. On arrival there, was slightly concerned about distance from town especially given the quality of the road up to the hotel. But then I saw the view. And our room. And the pool. And just the whole hotel. It is beautiful up there and well worth every penny. Delphine and Tim... More

We spent a couple of nights at El Jardin and we had a great time. View is absolutely amazing and the place is really peaceful. Food is European style and was absolutely delicious (steak was fantastic) as was the breakfast with homemade bread. good place if you want to relax a bit outside of San Juan del Sur.

We booked El Jardin based on reviews we read and we're not disappointed. The hotel is located in the hills overlooking a scenic bay and the Pacific Ocean. It is a roughly 15 minute drive out of San Juan del Sur. The the road is very rough, we took our time, drove slowly and carefully in our rental car and... More

We stayed at El Jardin for the last three nights of our honeymoon. It was the perfect way to end a perfect holiday. We booked with them because of all of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. When we arrived (after some difficulty in finding it!) we were warmly greeted by Delphine and Timothy. It felt like... More

We were so happy to arrive at the San Juan Garden Hotel when we were welcomed by the owners who took care of everything. This fine place is so cosy you can dream away and really relax from stressfull city life and be carried away by an ocean breeze or enjoy the swimming pool with some small snacks or refreshment...

We loved our stay at El Jardin! It is a perfect place to stay for families, and our 2-year old son loved the pool and beautiful courtyards full of fun things to explore. The room was great, and we could not have asked for better service from Delphine and Tim - such wonderful people! The breakfasts were a delicious way... More
