San Juan is not a big town - if you're a tourist, it's little more than a large beach curving around a bay, and a few blocks of shops and restaurants. The hotel is just far enough from the main bars and restaurants to be quiet late in the evening.
The hotel is a couple of blocks away from the centre of the beach as well as the beach restaurants. Staff seem pleasant enough - we didn't need to ask for anything special, so can't make a particular judgment on them. Rooms are OK - everything works but it's not shiny marble luxury. There's a reasonably nice yard area, with a bunch of chairs (including the Nicaraguan speciality of rocking chairs) and a few tables. Breakfast is served in a (covered) outdoor area - there's a number of cartoons on the walls in fairly simple Spanish.
Nice not-too-expensive place in which to stay while you spend a few days on the beach
