Clean hotel with a great view of the beach and great customer service. The hotel was very nice, but the selling point is their professional, accommodating staff. One staff member in particular, Alfredo, treated us like family. He assisted in finding transportation to local

Alcazar is a very conveniently located hotel, right in front of the bay, less than 500 meters from the main restaurants and clubs. The staff is very friendly, the common areas very comfortable and they include several amenities with your stay.

The hotel is very nice and the staff was extremely kind. The room was very comfortable and it had a great view of the beach. The continental breakfast was a nice surprise. Coffee, OJ, fresh fruits with yogurt and a croissant. I would definitely stay there again!

es un desastre perdon
I don’t know for certain but would highly doubt it since San Juan del Sur is quite a distance from Managua. Map it and you’ll see. Also, you may want to rethink going there at this time.
