“Peaceful Villa with a lovely view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

The villa was lovely, clean, spacious, nice outdoor space and had beautiful views from the upstairs balcony. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location was perfect for us - a little bit out of town in a quiet area, but only minutes to the beach walking. The pool is nice, never busy and easily accessible.Good value and we felt very safe. We were picked up in San Jorge (coming form Ometepe) by a van arranged through the office and it was reasonably priced, quick, professional and easy transport! There were 5 of us staying together and it was very comfortable - cleaning and office staff were great. Good value and we felt very safe. We were picked up in San Jorge (coming form Ometepe) by a van arranged through the office and it was quick and easy transport! Would stay here again - thank you!

My party and I had a great time. We checked in from August 5th to the 8th 2014. The villas are in great condition. They are comfortable and they are very beautiful. I stayed with local friends from Esteli. They were fascinated by it. The Pali is close by and very convenient to buy some Tonas (local beer) and some carne asada and spend some great quality time with your party. Then another night go down to the city and have dinner at El Timon.
The only con that I can find for the place is the location because its hard to find and it is through a dirt road so it is not ideal for a small car.
Other than that it is great!
My friends said "Esto es para repetirse" and it really is.

We got a deal on this unit through Groupon so the price was very reasonable, but this villa would have been worth every penny if we paid the full regular rate. The villas are only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the heart of San Juan del Sur. The view of the Bay from our living room and the Master bedroom balcony was beautiful at every time of day.
There were only two of us, but a whole family would have been very comfortable in the roomy villa. Downstairs the villa was not air-conditioned but with the large windows and ceiling fan, it was still comfortable; the bedrooms upstairs were well air conditioned! The bathrooms were modern and upscale; with hot showers with good pressure.
We cooked several meals in the well equipped kitchen. (For fine baked products, try Pan de Vida in town)
The staff is wonderful, warm and friendly, and were committed to ensuring we had a perfect vacation; they helped us enjoy sailing, horseback riding (cantoring on the beach in the surf...), and in-villa massages (as good as we have ever had; VERY REASONABLE - Don't miss these!!), and provided great restaurant recommendations.
There are two pools (for just 9 villas!); nicely designed to maximize lounging and cooling off pleasure and we enjoyed them daily. The staff maintained the pools carefully every morning.
San Juan del Sur is a bit rustic, but has a pretty wide selection of restaurants, and activities (Even rappelling...). Plenty of fun and relaxation can be found there.

Bahia del Sol was a wonderful vacation oasis...we would definitely visit again.

I just got back from a trip to San Juan del Sur with 4 friends. We received a deal on the price via the Clymb and so the price was very reasonable.

The villa is quite large, with a huge living room, kitchen, and dining area and half bathroom on the first floor, as well as an outdoor patio and BBQ. The kitchen comes with a large jug of filtered water that is connected to a dispenser. Upstairs is a humongous master bedroom, a smaller bedroom with one queen, and one bedroom with two twin sized beds. The whole house has central AC and ceiling fans. There's a communal pool across from reception. It's situated on a hill about a 15 minute walk or so into the town of San Juan del Sur, with a beautiful view of the bay. This let us get a chance to look at the wind on the bay every morning, and also allowed nice breezes to pass through the house.

Having our own kitchen was wonderful, and the staff could not be nicer. We were busy with surf lessons so we gave them a list of groceries, which they sent someone to obtain for us so that they were all ready when we returned. Anything we asked for, whether it was directions to some place, ferry schedules, or tour operators, having groceries or ice or another tank of water delivered, or having a masseuse come up to the room, the staff graciously helped us out with.

It was great to have a full kitchen and allowed us to use money for extra special things (like in-villa massages) since we could save money by cooking our own dinners. We bought some gorgeous red snapper and shrimp at the local fish market in town and grilled it ourselves for a celebratory first night's dinner. We later got to explore the market and got some wonderful fruit and avocados for breakfast and snacks. And the kitchen came with a blender--perfect for pina coladas which we enjoyed on the master bedroom patio where we could look up at the stars.

Again, the staff were superb and wonderfully friendly. I highly recommend this place for group travel to the area.

My wife and I just got back from our vacation to San Juan del Sur. This place was really nice and big. More than we needed. The shower was really powerful and we loved that. AC is really nice to have when you need it and it worked well. They need to work on the wi-fi though. Don't think it was in a good location and our condo we couldn't get signal. Make sure you read the manual they give for the place because it is really helpful and informative. The best part of the stay there for us though was the staff. They always go out of there way to help you with everything. Whether it was calling a taxi for us or ordering a pizza or services for laundry they were they to help for anything. Thank you to Mariel and all the very friendly staff and I can't remember all the names but thanks to the manager too who I believe likes to walk her dog on the beach in the early morning:) If we make it back soon we would stay there again for sure!!!!

I got a deal to stay at Bahia Del Sol for four nights at a much lower rate so it was definitely worth it for us. Their villas are beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. The description on the website was exactly what we got, 3 bedrooms that slept 6, with a nice patio and balcony where we could see the ocean and hear it at night. It's a 10-15 (dusty) walk from town and we kept hearing it wasn't safe to walk back at night but it's only a $6 (150 Cordoba) cab ride from town for four people. They usually charge 50 cordoba a person.

The housekeeping staff came ever day and it was always spotless when we got home, they even did our breakfast dishes. It had everything we needed so we bought some groceries (had to get oil, salt and pepper too) and was able to make a few meals on our own.

All in all, a great stay! The reception was also super helpful and can help you call for rides, shuttles, etc.
