My family and I recently got to stay at El Pacifico for 2 nights, we stayed in 2 rooms with AC units & had a very pleasant stay. The rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable, clean, showers had hot water, and WiFi!:) The complimentary coffee and delicious muffins every morning were a bonus! I also really appreciated that the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at El Pacifico. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with all our needs. Our room was very spacious and we had our fist hot shower in weeks lol Also it's a 5 minute walk on the beach close to everything happening in town. I'm glad to recommend the place!

We're a family of 3 travelling to Nicaragua from Costa Rica. We enjoyed our stay at El Pacifico. Not sure why some reviews said the owner was rude. Chuck and Jennings are super nice! Our room was cleaned every other day. There are a lot of moths at night and by morning they're all in the bathroom sink and floor.... More

We got a corner with no ac. The cross breeze and fans were just fantastic. All rooms have screens and a view. A great breakfast with coffee and dinner to order. The three minute walk to the beach was perfect.

The El Pacifico Hotel was an absolutely perfect place for my husband and me. It's a 2 minute walk to the gorgeous beach, less than a 10 minute walk down that beautiful beach to the town, a (steep!) 10-15 minute walk to the Jesus statue and incredible views, and a 10-15 minute drive to some of the best surfing beaches...

Its located at the foot of the Jesus Cristo de De San Juan del Sur and a 10 minute walk on the beach from the center of town. I was actually staying at Hola Ola... More

Echoing many of the other reviews here, this place is a combination of just good ol fashion southern hospitality (owners are from NC,USA) and peace and quiet. Located right outside of the main area, we were greeted by the new owners which really make this hotel 5 stars. Highlights are many; 1. Start the day with amazing coffee and fresh... More

We are a family of 4 on a tight budget and originally booked here because of the affordable price. To our surprise this place worked out better than those paying much more in town. We spoke with other people who wished they booked over here. You can easily walk along the beach to downtown San Juan del Sur. In the... More

Excellent location in a quiet area 10 minutes walk along the beach from town! Lovely fresh baked muffins for breakfast. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Rooms and pool area could do with a little TLC to make it extra attractive! Would stay here again if back in San Juan

Thanks for staying with us - twice! :) We are in the process of sprucing everything up - the landscaping once rainy season blesses us with some rain, and new bedding is on it's (slow) way from the States right now! When you come back to visit, we hope you'll find it even better. More

Rooms/linens need updating, but that's pretty irrelevant. The people here took me(a single girl) in and took great care of me. The owner and staff made sure I got everywhere I needed to go, and was fed and safe at all times. The pool is really nice and the homemade food is great. Above all these people are friendly, caring... More
