First off, this is a beautiful hotel with wonderful hosts and service. The views (about 15 mins outside San Juan del Sur) are stunning with an excellent sight of the ocean. Great location. Hosts are very friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast is just right. Only downside was the room was very loud with paperthin walls, we could hear everything outside the door. Granted, there were lots of kids running around so maybe we can let that slide. Bed was okay, comforters were very light and not super comfy. TV and hot tub were not working. All things considered, this was worth it for the price! I imagine they could continue to improve.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights at the end of april. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff was incredibly helpful. They have a restaurant in the hotel and we found we liked staying there to eat, the food was very tasty. We also enjoyed the short walk to the beach. It's the perfect escape if you would like beach access without the crowd. My family is going to be making future trips here.

If you want a peaceful and relaxing get away near San Juan Del Sur, this is the place to stay! The nicest staff, a beautiful property, nooks and crannies everywhere to relax and enjoy the gorgeous view...this is a wonderful hotel on the quiet coast of Nica. Vicky will make sure your stay is exactly what you want. Patios, hammocks, bar, restaurant, 2 minute walk to the beach, surf lessons...everything you need is right here. We booked the family room, which is two guest hotel rooms joined by a bathroom. Plenty of room, windows, and air conditioners. Clean and comfortable. If you read about people disappointed with this location, they likely weren’t coming to this area for the quiet spot that it is. If you want to see tons of Americans and party late into the night then you really should stay in San Juan Del Sur. The beach at the end of the road is shore break, always empty, with two restaurants on the sand. Watch out for the fresh water crocs!! We will be back! Enjoy your time in this sweet castle on the hill!

The best part about this hotel is when you drive up as it looks really impressive sitting on top of the hill. It was also very empty so it may be nice for a couple trying to relax and get away. Its about a 5 minute walk to the local beach which is OK but not as nice as neighboring beach in Playa Madera. Also the free breakfast was solid (pancakes especially). Downsides are the fact that it is very isolated, requiring a 30 minute drive on rocky roads to get into San Juan Del Sur. Not much worth seeing between this hotel and the town. The hotel itself isn't very nice, seemed like a 2 star hotel in terms of accommodations and cleanliness. There were so many bugs. I got all bitten up in my bed while sleeping. This was the most expensive hotel of the trip and the least impressive of the 3. Staff was OK but not very friendly except for the main manager who was nice. Overall, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Bahia. The most friendly staff and the most beautiful views. The owner Greg, made us feel at home like we were part of the family. We cannot wait to come back. It was also nice practically having the whole beach to ourselves.

Terrible experience. The resort was under construction when we arrived, they were jack hammering the empty pool & there were no guests there. We had a reservation to stay for 4 nights but had to go on Expedia to find another place. They had no explanation for why they did not email us but they did give us a bottle of wine & a ride back to town for our inconvenience. We wound up staying at a lovely place closer to town called Villas de Palermo. Casa Bahia is a 30 min drive on a dirt road from town. Just make sure they are open before you go.

Great view, just a five minute walk from the beach which is really quiet compared to San Juan. Plus there are two restaurants there which offer cheap beer (compared to San Juan) and the first restaurant that you come upon (the one the feeds the salt water croc) has the most amazing grilled garlic shrimp dish, I've never tasted shrimp this delicious. The restaurant at the hotel is good for snacks and the breakfast is better than most places in the US. The owner is interactive and very friendly, he's from California so he understands that customer service is important. The only hiccup we had there was when we asked for a shuttle to the Managua airport the "shuttle" was a corolla sedan, not nearly big enough for this family of four and their suit cases. Lastly the road getting there is hard dirt (called the chocolate road by the natives) so just take your time and trust the signs, they will lead you to the hotel. Great place and when we return we will totally be staying here again over San Juan.

This place offered decent value, but is not a 4/5 star place. It is obviously a little frayed around the edges. I think that the SJDS region is over-built with hotel rooms and that there is not enough revenue coming in to properly maintain properties like this. The staff was friendly/helpful and overall this was a fine stay. The room was fine, if a bit dated/worn (and no in-room safe). The Wifi worked. The breakfast was decent. The pool was fine and the views were nice. There was construction going on during our stay that was noisy, but such is life (and a good sign that someone is investing in the infrastructure there). Maybe this property has recently come under new ownership or something and will be nicer (and pricier?) in the future - I could see this as the location is good (Playa Marsella itself is a nice beach).
