We stayed at Casa Bahia for one night only, but felt like we had found a paradise just for us. The hotel staff was very laid back but accessible, and made us great drinks and snacks. The hotel gets great breezes off the ocean - sitting outside in the evening (or at the pool) was lovely. The beach is a... More

After flying for the entire day my expectations were blown away. I loved the homey feeling that was given off by the staff and the way there was no hesitation to tend to every need I had. And I loved The vibe that was given off by the rooms and I absolutely loved just sitting out and looking at the... More

Just returned from 7 nights in this hotel. We had 2 rooms , 4 teenage girls in #8 and wife and I in #7. Very comfortable. Great views of the beach from the veranda just outside the rooms. First time in Nicaragua! The beach was a short walk and after checking it out we felt entirely comfortable letting the girls... More

We stayed two nights in Casa Bahia Hotel, which is now called Bahia Family Adventure and Surf Hotel. Rooms were clean, but a bit outdated. We had tv, AC, etc. No complaints there. Linnens were a bit old though. Breakfast and the salad we had were way below average. Salad with beef was literally: greens, a quarter tomato and some... More

We just spent 3 nights at Casa Bahai. My wife and our 5 year old daughter really loved our stay. As others have stated, it is about 15-20 minutes away from SJDS, but worth it to have the seclusion and close proximity to Playa Marsella. The beach is a 4-5 minute walk from the hotel. The hosts were nice and... More

We've been living in Nicaragua for the last 4 years now, and we're always looking for new places at the beach to stay on the weekends. Of all the hotels we have visited in San Juan del Sur, this is the best so far. Great service, great panoramic view and location, and the price is a nice deal, compared to... More

The property is quite nice and the rooms were clean. But a lot of little things made our stay average. Towels were not changed daily. At 27°C walking up and down hills you work up a sweat, so you shower more often. Only one one plug so it's a pain to charge your devices. No side lamps so if you... More

My friends and I arrived for a two night stay here. If you are looking for seclusion,quiet, nature and close proximity to the beach, this is the spot for you. Our rooms were tidy, clean and modest. Please note that to get to this location, is a 20$ cab ride from town along a bumpy, dusty road. If you want... More

My wife and spent three relaxing days with Ron and his wife Marsha. The hotel is designed for confort and relaxation. We were amazed at the quality of the meals. Great food and great selections. We will definitely be returning later this year. The only negative was having to leave.

On a whim my boyfriend and I stopped here to see if they had a room and we were so lucky they did! The family that owns and operates the hotel were wonderful in the way of service and would sit and chat with us. The hotel itself is beautiful and offers many areas to sit and relax. The rooms...
