“Clean and comfy”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in San Juan Del Sur and had a good experience. The beds are comfy and the rooms are clean. We had some problems with the wifi while we were there, it would turn off and on randomly and sometimes you could not get it in the room. The included breakfast was very good though with lots of options. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly! I do think the price was a bit high but all around it was a good stay.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

At Hotel Azul Pitahaya we had the suite for 2 nights. The room was very clean and very friendly. from the small balcony you have a nice view on the life on the streets. only the price could be a little bit lower.

Great menu, very good food and awesome atmosphere!! Great place to eat, drink and hang out! Wifi connections works very well and the staff is very friendly!!! I had the burger and the coffee is one of the best! Don Paco!

Room Tip: All rooms are around the scene, second floor would be probably best!

Very friendly staff and delicious food. I highly recommend the chicken curry :9!!!!! I think is a good price, although the rooms are small, they are cozy and clean and the price of the room includes the breakfast which is a plus, and is a good hearty breakfast!! I also recommend the smoothies and the chocolate cheesecake :)!!!!!!

Noisy, but I expected that. What I didn't expect was for our room to not be cleaned in the four nights we stayed there. For this price, I at least expect my trash cans to be emptied once in that amount of time (especially when you're not supposed to flush toilet paper), and it would've been nice to have the beds made and the floor swept at least once, too. I guess leaving our key with the front desk and hanging the "please make up room" sign on the door wasn't enough. The front desk service was otherwise great, but I'm sure there are better values and locations in San Juan del Sur.

Too old for a Hostel, too poor for Pelican Eyes? Perfect in-between solution! Room was spotless clean, a/c was heaven sent, cable and internet worked as promised, and the extra $10/night for a private balcony was money well spent. The barking dogs (which many have mentioned in their reviews) are a part of the culture in Latin America, so I barely even noticed the barking. Watching them play from the balcony was live entertainment, as far as I'm concerned. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and very forgiving of my Spanglish. The included breakfast was fine. Limited choices, but always hit the spot. Great location. They also have a generator, which comes in handy when the electricity goes, which can be often!

Had a wonderful stay here! It's located right in the heart of San Juan del Sur, the rooms were very comfortable with AC and hot water and the adjoining cafe serves the best lattes in town. There are lots of taxis and shuttles right outside so it's an easy hop on and off point for going to Playa Hermosa, Playa Maderas and other beaches. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back soon.
