easy to access local night life and safely get back home. Beautiful room and amazing views from the balcony. Balcony is set back to allow privacy too. Had a great time!

We found this place by accident and decided to stay here because of their price, swimming pool and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is included but they also offer a variety of other options. It's nice because it is a calm place to stay outside San Juan but close enough. We also really enjoyed the pool after spending the day at the beach!

Our hosts were very nice and we would most definitely stay there once again when in San Juan.

We didn't stay at the hotel this trip, we rented a home in SJDS. We met Kerstin who was the property manager of the home we rented and her husband Clemens picked us up at the airport. We used Clemens as our driver for around town and sightseeing. We highly recommend using him as a guide/driver.; he is very knowledgeable about the area. He took us on several trips to Granada, Lake Nicaragua, Monboncho (the rainforest) and the old market in Masaya. Living in SJDS for 20 years makes Clemens an excellent guide.

Have dinner at the El Pacifico; there was four of us and each meal was excellent. Great caipirinha's! We caught fish and Kerstin made it several ways and was most enjoyable.

We will return to visit Kerstin and Clemens and the friends we made during our trip.

The owners of this hotel are German and very solid. They built the hotel and have been there for many years. Their knowledge of Nicaragua is incredible.

The hotel is a short, easy walk to the beach and town. The rooms are simple, clean and have all the comforts you need.

My wife and I have been to San Juan Del Sur many times and would not consider staying anywhere else than the El Pacifico Hotel. It is located right outside of town, close enough to walk to town and back within 10min. In town at night can be a little nosiey at times, especially late at night. Its quiet at the hotel for a good nights rest.There is always someone on the grounds and safe enough to leave your door unlocked if you were to forget to lock up. The German couple that runs it, have been there 20yrs. and have a wealth of knowledge of the area. The food is excellent and they have a pick up service and return service from the airport so that you are not driving in the traffic of Managa.

Room Tip: The west side rooms have early morning sun.

When we stayed here we felt like we were part of the family. It is a nice quiet hotel off the beaten path but close enough to the town "Center" that you can walk easily there on the beach. The morning coffee hour/breakfast could have lasted all day starting the day right with good conversation and information. The owners are originally from Germany but have been in Nicaragua since the early 1990's and are definitely the go to people for info and advice about this country. We will be returning to San Juan and will stay nowhere else but Hotel Pacifico.
The rates are reasonable, the food is good, the drinks are cheap, the rooms are newly renovated and clean, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. What more could you want.

We love the Hotel Pacifico and return year after year. The rooms are comfortable and clean with air conditioning and television. The showers have hot water, which is not so common in Nicaragua. The restaurant/bar serves 3 meals a day and the food is really good. The pool is a good place to hang out and the beach is just one block away. Hotel Pacifico is located in the nicest neighborhood in San Juan del Sur and is quiet and peaceful. The owners are very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and speak Spanish, English and German.
