We ended up coming here on short notice - we were staying about 20 minutes out of town and decided we wanted to stay in town instead after a day trip. Park Avenue Villas had a room available for the 3 nights we wanted, so we jumped on it. They kind of just let us pick a room that was within the price we were quoted (bunch of guests were just heading out after New Year's so they were cleaning everything), so we ended up in the Venetian. It was a nice, comfortable room with two queen beds and I enjoyed the air conditioning. I also really liked the design of the bathroom. The location is great too; it's close to where all the action is without being in the center of it. It's set back a bit from the main street where most of the bars and restaurants are so it's nice and quiet. We didn't stay in one of the suites, but we could see them when they were being cleaned and they looked very nice.
I would definitely recommend this hotel
We took advantage of the pool because the beach in SJDS doesn't really have anywhere to sit down and isn't the greatest swimming spot anyways. The view from the balcony area upstairs is incredible, especially at sunset. You could not ask for anything better. Their wifi works pretty well, but we had to go out of our room to use it because the signal didn't make it into our room.
Then you have the owners, Ralph and Renda, who are so very charming and friendly. During our stay, they were always all over the hotel making sure things were running smoothly. We work in construction so we actually had a very long, interesting talk with Ralph about how they built the hotel.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you are looking for something different in a town where a hostel is almost every second building.
