Royal Chateau Hotel
Ranked #19 of 27 Hotels in San Juan del Sur
Reviewed December 3, 2009

We had a very good experience at this hotel. One of the best values in San Juan for a mid range hotel! Other places we visited were much more expensive and did not offer anything more.

Rooms were clean, very big and with air conditioning, which I don't necessarily require, but it was nice to cool down.

Breakfast was tasty and the staff were very pleasant.

We rented a jeep for 2 days from the owner, and visited the nearby beaches including Maderas and La Flor beach where the turtle hatch their eggs. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

We checked several hotels in San Juan del Sur and the Royal Chateau was big far the best. Big and clean room, airy and light which is quite hard to find in San Juasn del Sur for this price. The little terrace where we had breakfast is nice and relaxing, the staff is helpful.
All in all for $50 or so, that's a great place

We spent 3 nights at the Royal Chateau. We had a room on the 1st floor which was bright and airy (compared to other hotels we've stayed in in the country) and had two double beds. There was no wardbrobe and a funny chest of drawers (with no drawers!). We were offered a fan or air conditioning and the room had a TV with lots of satelite channels. The bathroom was modern and light and a good shower, albeit with tepid water. Breakfast consisted of eggs, toast, orange juice and coffee which you have on the terrace. We found the staff to be very friendly and the hotel and our room was kept spotlessly clean. I would say that this hotel is very good value (I think about $40 per night) and a good mid price option. Whilst in San Juan we used the pool at the Pelican Eyes Hotel for $10 per day - definately worth it if you want a nice treat. There are several good restaurants and bars in town all within 2 - 5 mins walking distance of the hotel.

I was working in Managua and decided to go down to San Juan Del Sur when I was finished. The Hotel Real Intercontinental MetroCentro concierge found the Royal Chateau for me. Less than $50 per night for a comfortable room with AC, two beds, shower with luke warm water. Breakfast is included, but there is no menu. eggs, toast, juice and coffee. Hotel is only a few rooms, triple story great views from top two floors. Located at back side of town less than 100 meters from the main beach, bars restaurants. beautiful garden with parking inside for rental cars. No frills, some little issues: roof leaked during heavy rain on top floor. Staff is reasonably friendly, and helpful: needed to book a ride back to Managua, they handled it within five minutes. Would definitely recommend for the offbeat traveler. Not for the Ritz set.
