Hotel El Puerto was the PERFECT place to stay for us in SJDS. It is situated a few paces from the water and busy area, making it incredibly quiet and easy to get to. The hotel is very safe, with two locked doors to get into the main courtyard. We could leave surfboards, towels and bathing suits outside overnight on our section of the porch and they weren't touched.

Now, this is not a hotel with plush towels and daily sheet changes. It is a bare-bones hotel run by the wonderful German-born Gertrude and her partner. Our room was super clean, very large, had nice cool tile floors and great handcrafted wooden furnture. The main front porch has comfy rocking chairs and the lobby has a refridgerator stocked with water, beers and juices. We didn't come to Nica to spend time in our hotel, so it was an ideal place for us to retire each night -- it had a bed, a private bathroom, was very clean and very safe.

If you don't want a resort hotel, don't want a hostel, but don't want to shell out half your travel money on lodging, this is the best choice. I would reccommend this to anyone heading there and will stay there again - no question!
