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Rooms were clean, but a bit outdated.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 grilled meat, no condiments or dressing. Not what we expected from a hotel that charges 70$ a night. Breakfast was simple: Gallo pinto, but completely tasteless. We recommend going to the neighbor towards the beach, Villa Mar, for food.
Location is convenient, close to Marsella beach but a 15/20$ cabride from city san Juan del sur. Keep that in mind if u dont have transportation. On arrival the girl that checked us in promised us a complementary two way ride to the next beach, Maderas. When we wanted to do this the next day she told us their driver was off today, so no complementary ride. We ended up walking 30 mins up- and downhill (one way) to the next beach on dusty roads. The day after we tried again, but that day their driver was on a tour so he wasn't there. Empty promise.
There was also a miscommunication about the price of the room. We agreed on 60$ a night, this was a walk in price, on checkout they charged an extra 10$ tax, this was not what was agreed upon. As the price as supposed to be all-in.
Service was average, all housemaids etc. were sweet and smiling all the time. Girl on the desk (same that promises the complementary ride) was cranky most of the time. Not hospitable at all, everything seemed to be more trouble than a pleasure.
I recommend staying in one of the other hotels near Marsella beach, for example: Casa Maderas eco lodge around the corner offers way better price/quality ratio for $39 a night for a double room and a nicer pool, newer rooms, etc.
