This house is operated on a beach outside San Juan del Sur. Although the distance is short, a cab into the San Juan is about 15 minutes because of the condition of the road. The bed was dirty, sheets weren't clean. We had been in Nicaragua for three weeks by the time we stayed at Casa Pelon, and it was the worst accommodation we had. After a hard day travel, we wanted to relax, enjoy the waves, it is why we chose a place outside San Juan. R+R was pretty much impossible as the Host was having guests over that afternoon and night. The kitchen/living room is open air and the guest rooms are right off the kitchen, so there is no privacy. Although we were welcome to join the party that night, we choose to take dinner in San Juan, cabbing it both ways. We returned around 11 hopeful to go to bed. The hosts were still drinking, playing music and didn't stop till about 1 am. We left early the next morning and got a hotel in San Juan. It is their house, and they can do what they want. However, it is pretty inconsiderate since we are paying guests. So, if you want to party on a quiet beach with the host and friends - stay here. If you want to relax without feeling awkward in someone's living room - stay somewhere else.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are situated on one of southwestern Nicaragua's most beautiful and tranquil beaches. Casa Pelon is located on Playa Marsella and is ten minuets from the fun town of San Juan del Sur and 5 minutes from the well-known surf break at Playa Maderas. We would be happy to arrange any transportation needs our guests may have. ... more less
