We extended our stay in San Juan del Sur because of our experience with this lodging, which is the only place we could find at a reasonable price point that offered nice common spaces for each apartment, fully equipped kitchen(even a blender for guayaba pina smoothies in the morning), extremely clean, nice balcony with hammock, very personable and helpful hosts, and some separation of space with the bedrooms, which has become important when travelling with teenagers! Price point was less than Casa Oro, but a bit more than some of the other hostels, but well worth it for the amenities, privacy, and location.
Prior comments about noise are true, but this is the norm in Central America, and Mexico. I am an early riser, so the 6 a.m. church bells did not bother me(I am already enjoying the roosters and parrots by this point).
Regarding AC, we never felt it was necessary. We had just come out of two weeks working and camping in the jungle on a finca, so perhaps our perspective was skewed. The ceiling fans were more than adequate.
