“Excelent Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2006

I just got back to the States from a Surf Trip to Nicaragua and we stayed at the hotel through Dale Dagger surf camp. The owner Mike is a very welcoming and helpful person. The rooms were very clean and very accommodating. Everyday they had a cleaner come in to make the beds and clean, just like in the States. Every morning they made us breakfast. WOWS try the Banana pancakes.

When I go back to San Juan Del Sur I will stay at Hotel Isabella again.

Thanks for the stay Mike

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2006

I have mixed feeling about this hotel. The owners of the hotel are very welcoming and helpful. The hotel seems to be made up of a couple of converted houses. The hotel has secure offstreet parking. A cooked to order american breakfast is included in the rate. There is a small swimming pool, but it's in a small barren looking courtyard....not really inviting. There is a very nice front porch that's great for relaxing and socializing. The rooms have a middle class suburban feel....not a lot of character. The linens were pilling and almost thread bare, and the bathroom looked clean, but it had a sewage smell. The rooms have dvd/video players with a movie library in the lobby. It's well located for exploring San Juan Del Sur, located next to the church....about 5-10 min walk to the beach. The rate was about $70 which seemed kind of high considering some of the negatives, but it wasn't an unpleasant stay.
