The title says it all. We knew we didn’t want to stay in downtown San Juan Del Sur or take part in any of the big parties so we looked for something on the famously beautiful Playa Maderas that is about 20 minutes outside of town. We saw the picture of the infinity pool at Hush and decided to book it thinking that it probably wouldn’t be as good as it looks in the pictures. We were wrong. This place is a secluded paradise with everything you could possibly need. 4 different levels of views, a projector screen movie area, hammocks, laundry service, yoga, a workout area, easy access to the beach and a huge infinity pool and deck looking out over the ocean. We stayed in the dorms which were the first double bed bunk beds we had see and were extremely comfortable and clean, each equipped with its own person fan and power strip to plug in all of your devices. The only thing it doesn’t have is a kitchen for cooking your own food, but the restaurant is fantastic and the free breakfast is more than adequate. To top it all off, the hostel is run by some of the nicest and most welcoming people we’ve met. We only booked one night but ended up staying 3 nights because we loved it so much. I would urge everyone who is thinking about visiting San Juan Del Sur to book a night here, or at least visit for sunset and drinks. Absolutely incredible!

I stayed at Hush Maderas w/ friend Steaed. Hush Maderas is a lovely, rustic chic boutique hotel and yoga retreat situated on the side of hill/ mountain, with amazing views of Pacific ocean and the raw, natural beauty of the landscape and a walking path to several amazing beaches, I loved so many things about this place; the breathtaking views (especially sunrise and sunset) from our room, open restaurant/ bar and pool areas, the cool breezes, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere, but most of all, I loved the staff. I want to say thanks to Marvin, and the other two young gentlemen that worked in the evenings and sometimes as landscapers during the day, for making and serving delicious food and drinks (best tacos and margaritas) and to Donella (I hope name is right), the other lovely lady who cooked and served breakfast, and the young gentlemen landscaper who served breakfast, for delicious coffee, fruit juices, rice and beans, and best banana pancakes I have ever had! I also want to thank the owners, Sanne and Tobias for being friendly and helpful and creating an relaxing and comfortable environment unlike any hotel stay I have ever had. Everyone was gracious, friendly and accommodating! I have wanted to visit Nicaragua for sometime and you made my first visit here a beautiful experience!

I stayed 5 days at Hush, and I loved it. It is a beautiful place, with a fantastic pool and view. Tobias, the owner is a very friendly guy, and helped me with all my questions. I slept in the dorm, which is luxurious. The food in the restaurant is also very tasty. I will recommend this place to everyone who is visiting Nicaragua!
