Away from the crowded noisy center but still so close to the beach and everything else, it is an excellent value for the money. Recommend it highly.

Gertrud was a wonderful hostess with lots of information.
The Hotel was in an absolutely wonderfully convenient location and so very safe... amazing.
Great spot to feel safe, be comfortable and the cost was so very reasonable....
I also recommend the five hour sailing trip on the Sailboat Jem with Captain Jim for forty dollars per person. One can find signs around town. It was a splendid day complete with hours of sailing, swimming and sunbathing on a beautiful beach.
Red Snapper was a great fresh meal at local restaurants
. Yes, many thanks Gertrud.....

Room Tip: Can save money by renting a room with fan instead of AC. With the windows open it is fine. The rooms...

The hotel was very clean, only a couple blocks from beach. The room was cheap with ac for small upcharge. Coffee and cookies in the am and a nice porch to sit on and use the wifi. Better deal than any other place in town. Easy to find and close to everything. No breakfast but good coffee. Plenty of the roosters nearby, the national bird. (they are everywhere and can't tell time)

The hotel room was nice, great value, had wifi and the owner spoke good english. They said they didnt include breakfast but there was coffee and biscuits every morning. Only negative thing was, there was a rooster nearby and woke us up, but it was nothing to do with the hotel.

This little spot is everything you need for your stay in San Juan del Sur. It is very well located (half a block to the beach, great restaurant choices and major banks), quiet, clean and affordable. We paid $20 for a large room with a private bathroom, good fan and very comfortable double bed. You can pay an extra $9 for air conditioning. It was a nice surprise to find fresh brewed coffee and biscuits first thing in the morning in the reception/lounge area.
Our room was on the top floor with a breezy balcony outside the room with great views of the hills surrounding the San Juan bay - a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.
We had a lovely two nights at El Puerto and would recommend it to anyone looking for simple, private accommodation at a very fair price.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a nice view.

If you want: a very clean room with private bath room, comfortable bed, fresh brewed coffee in the morning, for a very good price, this is the place to stay, if you can live with a cold shower, (very few have hot water)

We have been staying with Getrud and Enrique for several years and have enjoyed the convenience, cleanliness and service of El Puerto. They are very near the beach and markets, banks, etc. They both have a great service to their guests and they always a smile! The lounge has a tv, WIFI throughout, beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and the breeze is great in their rooms. Thanks Getrud for having us all those years!
