I like this hotel because I am always welcomed with a smile by name. The rooms are basic but comfortable. If you have a car or motorcycle you get a roomy secure parking area with 24 hour guard so you can come and go when ever you want. Here's a tip - if you don't need air conditioning, and you... More

We stayed in the Royal Chateau Hotel as part of a Gadventures tour. The staff was helpful upon check-in and was easily accessible throughout our stay. The rooms were decently sized, had multiple single or double beds, good air conditioning, large bathroom but the rooms had no safety deposit boxes. The front doors of the hotel close at night but...

I stayed on the second floor right at the top of the stairs. The room was big and comfortable. They had a chair outside so I could sit and read in the morning. There were tables on the first floor for breakfast (great pancakes) and a table on the second floor where we had dinner one night. Nice staff. Really... More

This hotel is located on the street just behind the church. It is very quite as there are family homes located around most of the hotel and the rooms are actually built back off the road and there is also a large parking lot between the road and the rooms. The rooms are very roomy and cozy and there are... More

3 of my buddies came to visit from the States and had heard good things about Sunday Funday at Pacha Mama, Naked Tiger, and another pool on the beach I can't remember. The party was great and since we weren't planning to spend much time in our rooms we were fine staying in a hotel away from the beach. The... More

First time here with my family. Loved it and will stay again. Excellent area in the city to walk around and a nice gym right across the street. My kids were happy about that. It's totally a family oriented place. Had a chance to meet the owner and was very pleased with outgoing and humble spirit.

We ended up here after the original hotel we booked cancelled our reservation as some other guests decided to stay longer. the location is a bit removed from the main area which was fine as it was an easy walk and quiet at night. We had a 3 bed room on the 2nd floor which was spacious and clean, A/C... More

I spent time in San Juan del Sur working as a photographer. With irregular hours, I had a day where I could rest (working at night). Hotel staff knocked on my door no less than FOUR times throughout the day for no reason (I explained the first time that I did not wish to be disturbed). In addition, the constant... More

I stayed at Royal Chateau a couple of times during my stay in Nicaragua. The rooms are clean and there are rocking chairs outside each room on the balcony. Ask for a room on the upper levels as the view is better there. If you drive a car, this place is ideal as it has a large gated parking area.... More
