“Best value in town”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

While many people come to San Juan Del sur for a rage surfed out party, or for a luxurious latin vacation, as a couple we came down looking for a relaxing good time, where we could hang out but also get away when we needed. This was an ideal place. We had AC for 38 a night, which was the best value I could find. The bed was nice and they cleaned the room for you. In addition the common room area was an added bonus. We shared it with two Danish volunteers who were also looking for a relaxing time. The kitchen gives one the opportunity to cook and to bring home leftovers. The balcony is amazing for hanging out late at night and the tv allows you to catch a game or show. The only problems were the internet did not function consistently, going on and off and the owner and the staff were often unavailable when we needed them, however very kind and helpful when present. Her husband was out of town which may have effected the quality of service. This being said this is a great value for any couple. I also recomend that family or groups rent out an entire floor for the week, where you can take advantage of the apartment. Overall, a great value and a rare quality middle of the road price range.

Room Tip: AC is recommended between April and June.

I stayed at La Terraza for 10 days while taking spanish lessons and really enjoyed the location and the amenities. Ther are two floors with three rooms per floor - one with a private bath while the other two rooms share a bath. The three rooms share a kitchen, living room and terrace. Each terrace has a hamock and a great view of the main street and the water front. The overhead fans don't really create much of a breeze so it can be hot in the bedrooms...

The aparments were cleaned each day, they felt very safe (locks for each room, the apartment door and the outside door), the price was very reasonable and coffee and drinking water were provided. The market is only one block away for buying provisions and the Church and central park is just across the street. San Juan del Sur is a small town so everything is closeby.

I was there just before Easter so there were many parades that went down the main street to the church which we could watch directly from our terrace, an added bonus! I was also travelling solo and this was a good place to meet other travellers and much preferrable to a hostal.

Room Tip: The third floor apartment is definately the better of the two floors - better view of both the water...

This place has my top 5 requirements for a place to vacation:
1) It's VERY clean
2) It's VERY safe
3) It's close to town, but not too loud
4) It has a BEAUTIFUL ocean view
5) It's reasonably priced (yes you can stay at a hostel for 10 bucks a night, but you're sharing your bedroom with random people who may be raging all night and also may bring in bed bugs)

The guest house is beautiful with private rooms that are well kept. The best part it the beautiful roof top terrace from which you can see the entire city and the beautiful San Juan Del Sur sunsets. Do yourself a favor and stay here. The host is very friendly :) Four stars ****

Having a kitchen and a balcony makes for a great stay. Loved drinking fresh brewed coffee on the balcony each morning. Katie was a wonderful host.

We have stayed in the 3rd floor condo for 4 nights between Christmas and new years'eve. The ghesthouse is ideally situated and the roof terrace is priceless (the highest around). The onwer's did help us to book a few activities and their recommandations concerning restaurants we're all right.
I recommand La Terraza for sure, especially for a group of friends.
San Juan Del Sur is worth staying several nights and this type of rental makes it memorable.

The cute guest house has 6 clean rooms on two floors. There is one bedroom with private bath on each floor and the other two rooms share a bathroom. Each room had windows for good ventilation. It really is a large apartment with fully equiped kitchen, living room with TV, wifi, and balcony with hammock on each floor. There is the top floor for great sunsets The location was great and Kate the owner was very helpful. We were only going to stay 5 days but it was so comfortable we ended up staying 12 days. Our sheets were changed every 2 or 3 days and there was always toilet paper and new towels. Coffee is provided. Great location, close to everything. It is a good deal when you look around and see the cost of other places.

Room Tip: I felt the rooms and overall guest house was very safe, private locks on all doors, I would still ch...

We read Some pretty bad reviews on this place but still thought we'd give it a chance..see if they worked out the bugs. The owners were really sweet and very accommodating on arriving. We stayed on the top floor, room 3 with shared bath. The room was pretty small but really cute and all we needed. It was clean, right in town, great balcony with great hammock. The kitchen was really nice. Great breeze at night. Lots of charm. We will definitely go back but next time we will try to get the room on the same floor with the private bath. It was a lot bigger with a great view, more privacy if you want it. The building was very secure but you should lock your stuff in your room and not leave it unattended in common area if your going out or to bed. It's not fancy, but it's cute,very comfortable, clean, convenient, and a good price. My sheets matched!:)

Room Tip: Top floor, private bath
