I've stayed at this hotel 3 times for a reason, it's a good value for what you get in the area and breakfast is included. The staff are always friendly and helpful, they also have a parking lot you can keep your vehicle in at no charge. San Juan del Sur is a small beach side village so no matter... More

i stayed at this hotel one night and the last night ever! when we arrived at the hotel, we discovered crabs on the bed sheets. I called the housekeeper and she told me they were ocean flies. I googled a crab pictured and showed it to them and they moved us into another room. They ended up agreeing with me... More

The best part of this hotel is the central garden which the rooms are alongside, so although very central it is quiet throughout the day and night. The room itself was reasonably clean, but with a few hairs on the bedding. The shower drizzled out a small stream of water that was just adequate enough to lather under. Furniture and... More

Fairly compact rooms but in a great location, a couple of blocks from the beach. Nice little garden area. Lack of water pressure or hot water in shower. Rooms are at the back so are relatively quiet. Small breakfast room with adequate breakfast. Had to wake up security man to get in at night.

It is a well run and quiet place, excellent staff and a beautiful garden, truly relaxing. It compares positively with other hotels in the same price range. After hours just sit in the garden area and sip some rum.....

A great deal in San Juan del Sur. The location is great, being right down town. The rooms are situated in the back so they are nice and quiet. Rooms have good beds, a fine bathroom and have sufficient space. Personnel is very kind and really helpful. Also the breakfast is fine and I really loved their coffee! Definately recommended,...

The location for Hotel Colonial is great but we had a few issues during our stay. We had not hot water or water pressure for the first 2 nights of our stay. The wifi only works in the lobby, we were never given the right amount of towels for 4 people and breakfast is only 1 choice, gallo pinto. It... More

This is a really nice centric hotel just a block away from the beach. It's super clean, with basic rooms but comfortable bed. We stayed at second floor with a nice garden view. Best part was free garage and nicaraguan breakfast included, one of the best breakfast in town!!

When I travel, I am looking for a clean room with a private bathroom and a comfortable bed. Arriving in San Juan del Sur, I began the usual tour of hotels to select one. It is a tourist town but it is the slow season and I was expecting the pricing to reflect that. Hotels on the beach were $60... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Pretty average hotel and rooms very small but in a nice area near to the beach. Breakfast was average as well. Staff were OK though and were quite helpful. Don't think I would stay in this hotel again if coming here again.
