La Terraza Condominiums
Reviewed August 17, 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you are needing quiet, the lower apartment with the bedroom facing the courtyard/roof, versus the...

As our reservation for a double bed room ensuite with Hostelworld did not work out, we got the apartment for the same price which was very huge and comfortable. Everything is in good shape, lovely interior. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area invites to cook together and have a nice evening. However, ask in advance if the air conditioning is included in your price as we had to pay this extra and no one told us beforehand. La Terraza is only 3minutes walk from the wonderful bay and all restaurants, shops and an Internet Cafe are nearby, just across the road. Staff is friendly and helpful. Arrange your tours with the hostel Casa Oro which is just a minute away from La Terazza.

This place combines some of the comfort and privacy of a nice apartment with the price and sociability of a hostel. We met some really nice people who were sharing our apartment and the owners were also welcoming and were extremely helpful when we had to stay on a few extra days due to a lost passport. The balcony area is great for relaxing and there are beautiful views from the rooftop at sunset. We looked at a good few options in San Juan del Sur and this was the best value we came across. Recommended.

Our group of 6 girls had the top floor apartment which has 3 rooms. It would have been much more comfortable with AC, as it was very hot even at night. We thoroughly enjoyed the terrace and the hammock, and I especially loved that we were right downtown yet away from most of the noise (at night). Unfortunately it's right across the street from a church whose bells start going off at 6am. I highly recommend booking through a hostel booking website, because that's what we did and it saved us $30 per night, which is what we would have paid had we booked directly through the La Terraza website. I think next time I would look for a place with AC, although I would miss that balcony...

Room Tip: The room with the two twin beds may be the most comfortable to sleep in the heat (away from body hea...

La Terraza slept 6 of us pretty well. It was a little cramped, but the addition of a twin mattress on the floor helped. The balcony was definitely a highlight. It was hard to leave it. Katie was really helpful during the planning phase of the stay and also during. She suggested Nica Sail and Surf for the day sailing trip which turned out to be the favorite day for many of us. It seemed like a really good value. My only complaint is that the ceiling fans in the living room and balcony seemingly did not work. That would have made our stay more comfortable.

We had an awesome time at la terraza. The location is perfect - not far away, but far enough from the noise...it was a cute and clean place with a nice common area. Would def stay here again! We had two rooms with a shared bath...one room had two twin beds and the other had a double.

We stayed in sjds for a few nights and only managed to get a room for this gem for one of those nights. The second floor was set up beautifully and cleanliness seems to be a top priority. The location is far enough away from the beach to make for a quiet night. owners were helpful with organizing a day trip for surfing as well!
