“Great service, location and price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We loved our large room right outside the communal patio. There's a lot of space to chill out and relax and a great view of the town and water.

The girls who work there are all incredibly accommodating and gave us stellar recommendations for food and surf board rentals!

Do a day trip to hermosa beach it's absolutely stunning and great surfing!

The rooms were spotless and spacious at maracuya and the breakfast was also great! It changed daily so it was great to try something new each day!

Stay at maracuya if your looking for a great location and safe place to stay!

Finding Hotel Maracuya we were amazed at the level of standards. it was clean, friendly, helpful staff, beautiful room with great views and the breakfast was way beyond any hotel/hostel breakfast. It was the same price as the local hostels but you get hotel standards. You can also use the kitchen as in a hostel and the roof terrace has got views over the town and the sea! Great for watching beautiful sunsets.

i didn't really care for the town too much but staying at the maracuya made a whole world of difference .... there are many cheap indescript hostals in san juan where you can get a room for a few dollars but for me it was worth paying a little extra to stay in a place a bit more comfy & cheerful.( i paid $ 25 for an ensuite room )
i was given room 6 which i loved , it was spacious and airy with 2 big windows that i could open for fresh air. best of all, the room opened right onto the lovely terrasse and was next to the kitchen that i could use whenever i wanted. it was so great to be able to fix myself a nice little dinner from the fresh produce i would get at the mercado and then enjoy it on the terrasse under the cool breeze. that's also where a cooked breakfast is served in the morning - wasted on me as i don't like any hot food in the morning but people seemed to enjoy it nonetheless , if anything i could sip my coffee and enjoy the lovely view .( apparently, even people who stay in the dorms are entitled to the free breakfast too ! )
the staff was wonderful and would always greet you with a big smile and was always ready if you had any questions. there ' s also a security guard at night so i had no safety issues whatsoever ....
i don't know that i would want to go back to san juan but for the cheer pleasure of staying in that hotel again ! i don't think that you will be disappointed .

The hotel itself is very clean, nicely decorated and well worth what you pay for it. The staff is great, ready to help you out.
They made a mistake with our reservation, and when we arrived they had a room with two twin beds waiting for us, (we are a couple) so they immediately put them together to make a double bed.
Our room had a tv with channels both in English and Spanish.
The breakfast, which is served in an amazing terrace overlooking the whole town, changes every day so you'll never get bored.
The only two downsides are: the wifi doesn't make it to the room (you have to sit outside to use it), and the shower has only cold water (but this is something that appears to be 'normal' in parts of Nicaragua).

we were planning to stay only few night there. At first you ve got a discount when you stay more than 3 night wich is a good motivation to stay, but the place itslelf and the kindess of the staff... we stayed 1 month, it s like home now. consistent breakfast everyday, beedroom cleaned everyday or whenever you want if you like some privacy, internet, chocolate bars and drinks available for reasonable prices. And one more time, the owner and his staff are some very nice persons . Also if you ve got low budjet, they propose dorms rooms for 10 $ .

Room Tip: ask for the bedroom close from the garden, you ll have more space ahead of you and direct access to...

I was traveling with a family of 5, and Ligia and her staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We rented cabin 7 & 8 so our daughters had their own room and our room had great A/C and a hammock with a killer view. Its quiet and felt very safe.
They let us check out late, they gave us a great deal on two rooms, and to date, our best hotel experience in Nica. This place is NOT the 4 Seasons, but the extra effort made to make us comfortable means everything. Ligia GETS it and is the reason why her business will thrive. I cannot say enough good things about this place....plus, it's a short walk to EL Gato Negro which my wife loved. Thanks to Ligia and her staff...great spot, great price, great people.

Room Tip: rent room #7 near Ligias house, GREAT view and AC.

I stayed at Maracuya for a weekend for a friend's birthday. We were a group of 6 and the staff went out of their way to make sure we all felt comfortable and cared for. The owner and the staff gave great recommendations to beaches and restaurants. They went out of their way to help us get to the beaches we wanted to go to and do the activities we wanted to do. We were looking for something that wasn't right in the main area but was close and we were happy with the location. It's an easy walk to the beach and the main strip of restaurants. The views are great from the balcony and the top level rooms. The breakfast was good with extras that you can pay for. The wi-fi is only available in the dining area and the lobby. The rooms were cleanI definitely would recommend this to friends.
