Certificate of Excellence

This hotel was excellent. An easy ten/fifteen minute walk into town. Very friendly and bilingual staff. Safe town, safe area. The hotel has everything you need. Clean rooms and bathrooms. A/C in bedrooms upstairs. 2.5 baths in the villa. Kitchen has six burner gas stove (matches are in the cupboard), pots and pans, coffee maker, full size refrigerator, and bottled water for cooking and drinking. They will even go to the grocery store for you! Can't say enough about this property and staff.

Its a hidden gem and turned out to be way nicer than we had expected. The villas are extremely comfortable - away from the hustle bustle at a 10 mi walk from the city centre. The service is excellent and the staff speaks good English. The pool is clean and a good way to relax after spending the entire day on the beach. The villas have a great view and it was a treat to have your morning coffee with the blue ocean sights. Small tip - There are no cabs to be found late in the night so be prepared to walk back - we were a bunch of friends and did not feel unsafe but just a consideration to keep in mind. The staff did help us with many rental car / cab recommendations.

When we booked the facility we did not understand it was three bedroom, for my wife and myself. So, go with three couples, at $150 per night, $25 per person, it was superb. The pool is great and you can walk to the beach and downtown San Juan del Sur in about 15-20 minutes, or drive in 5. There is a great little fish market on the south end of the downtown area, where I bout 2 kilos of large shrimp, 10 lobster tails and a three pound red snapper for $26 USD. We ate like kings and the local rum is inexpensive and the best I have ever had,

Close to town (15 minute walk), but far enough away to be much quieter than staying in the town. Clean, AC, all the amenities including wifi.

They have terrific recommendations on places to eat and see and they speak English very well.

Bravo!

We recently stayed in the Villas for a family vacation, and had an absolutely incredible experience - I almost don't want to share this location with the whole world, but I promised Nesthor I would write a TripAdvisor review! The location and setting of the Villas was absolutely perfect for us. Our villa had an amazing view of the bay and the swimming pool and flowers below. It was peaceful and tranquil (especially as it was not peak season, which we preferred, so most of our stay we were the only guests around), away from the hustle and bustle of the small town, but not too far away that you couldn't walk down for groceries or to the beach during the day, although we were wisely advised not to do so at night. But it was easy to arrange for cab service getting to and from the villas when needed for just a few dollars, and the villas provided security staff that made guests feel extra safe at any time of the day or night. Our villa also had a lovely outdoor garden and seating area where we could relax and enjoy the night air. Inside was more than enough room for 5 adults and accomodations were comfortable with all amenities we needed. As we had never been to Nicaragua, we were really concerned with how to make the most of our 5-day stay, but once we met Nesthor and Mariela, they made everything so easy for us. Nesthor especaily went out of his way to provide the most excellent service during our stay and to make sure we were comfortable and able to do all that we wanted to do. He arranged our tours and excursions with wonderful and knowledgeable guides, helped us with dinner reservations, scheduled incredibly relaxing in-room massages for all 5 of us, answered our million daily questions and concerns (always with a smile), let us borrow umbrellas during a downpour, and even found a way for us to have a locally-baked cake delivered for my sister's birthday so we could surprise her. Nesthor and all the rest of the staff were friendly, professional, helpful, and respectful of guests' needs and privacy. It was the perfect setting for the perfect vacation and we hope to return someday!

Room Tip: Villas 7 or 8 are a bit set apart from the others and have the best views

I'd been to SJDS before and stayed in a mid-range hotel, which was great, but this Bahia del Sol was truly amazing. The villas are beautiful, and the views are out of this world. The staff is also incredibly helpful, especially Nesthor. He was so patient with all of our questions and when we ran into some trouble with a tour, he took it really seriously. We had dinner made for us the first night we arrived and also got massages, both of which I recommend. I went with a group of 7 mostly singles, and we never felt crowded. The only downside is the villas are farther from town and the grocery store than its website implies. Going town is walk-able during the day, but definitely a bad idea at night, so you'll be paying for a lot of after-dinner cabs, which is a little annoying. You will want to hire a cab to take you to get a few basic groceries the first day you are there because that walk is too far. But in a way being in such a secluded spot was very relaxing (we also did a fair amount of partying at the villa with no problems). Depends on what you're into. But overall, great experience and very affordable.

Room Tip: If you aren't fit, try to get a villa near the office. The villa on top of the hill is spectacul...
