Hotel Victoriano
Ranked #13 of 27 Hotels in San Juan del Sur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We only ate at the Vintage Restaurant, which is probably the closest thing to fine dining in San Juan del Sur (though dress Bermuda length shorts are still acceptable dining wear). This is a beautiful boutique hotel, formally an old house that has been renovated into a seaside hotel. Location is great being right across from the beach, has lots of old world charm, with a lovely interior courtyard as well as great al fresco dining. We actually ate inside the restaurant, where the men in our group indulged in steaks flambéed in 18 year old Flor de Cana, the local rum. Our waiter was very attentive and eager to please.

This is a charming victorian hotel (formerly a private vacation home for one of the Samoza widows) right across the street from the beach in San Juan del Sur. While the rooms are small and the bathrooms tiny, there are abundant places to sit outside and to watch the slow-paced life in this Pacific Beach location. For us, breakfast was a special highlight as it was always delicious and well-served on a breezy balcony overlooking the bay. The hotel is within walking distance of the many open air restaurants ringing the bay. It is well kept, very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Compared to other places we stayed in Nicaragua, it was a bit overpriced.

This hotel is a grand old mansion that has been converted into a lovely hotel. Mark Twain stayed here! It is located at the quiet end of town. Rooms are nice and large and very comfortable indeed. Nice comfortable beds. We had room 101 on the ground floor which has it's own seperate entrance. Inside it felt like a little country cottage with french doors opening out to a small balcony overlooking the ocean. We loved it!

Breakfast is served on the upper balconies and is first class. the waiters were great too. Carlos at the reception is really helpful and friendly, but the girl who works on reception with him is a really cold fish. Not very friendly at all. All business!! Never did get a smile out of her!

Overall we were really satisfied with the hotel. Our only criticism is that all the doors to the rooms need a really good clean. They are all quite dirty and need a good wipe down.

Room Tip: 101 has it's own private entrance and lovely views of the bay. We saw the room above, which was...

We recently stayed 3 nights at this very comfortable, clean hotel. The breakfasts were outstanding, and the pool was great, even though a bit small. The beautiful bay on the Pacific Ocean is just outside your door. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in San Juan del Sur.

I stayed at the Hotel Victoriano with a friend for about five nights in August 2013. It was great! Room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Staff and service was excellent. There are three options for breakfast. I had the Nica breakfast each morning and it was the perfect way to start the day.

The pool is small (but good), but the hotel is located across the street from the beach if you need more water and sun. San Juan is also so close to many other amazing beaches that the pool doesn't matter that much.

It's in the quiet end of town, but everything is still so close. I definitely will stay here again if/when I make it back to Nicaragua.

We stayed for 6 nights and this was undoubtedly the best of six hotels which we used in Nicaragua.Nicely located at the quieter end of the bay away from the majority of bars and restaurants.You just cross the road in front of it to access the beach or walk up the road into the town centre.Our room was at the back of the hotel and was quiet.I believe the rooms upstairs have fabulous views but there are only a few available so you might struggle to book one.The small pool is very clean and there is a little jacuzzi next to it.Not many sun loungers but there are only approximately 21 rooms.Plenty of other seating if you want to sit in the shade to rest or dine.Staff are excellent and very helful.Breakfast was great with a huge plate of fruit followed by a choice which included eggs with bacon or pancakes.We had one evening meal in the hotel and the food was good but the menu was not as interesting as some of the restaurants nearby.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in a downstairs room at the back of the hotel which wad large and had a high ceiling with...
