“Private retreat in SJDS with a view of the Jesus statue”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Traveled to San Juan Del Sur on a surfing adventure with some friends and had an amazing time. Bahia Del Sol was the perfect place to stay, as it's conveniently located between downtown and Playa Maderas (beautiful beach & great surf spot). The landscape views from our master bedroom balcony were beautiful (see pics) and you could even see the bay from every bedroom window in the house.

The service and staff were excellent, we ended up arriving later than expected, about 7pm which was a couple hours after the front desk had closed but when we finally arrived, they were waiting for us with keys in hand so we could get into our villa.

Some advice for 1st time visitors to the country, I highly recommend renting a 4x4 truck as the roads to the surfing spots are all dirt with many potholes. We rented a 4-door Ford Ranger and it was perfect for all our luggage and for transporting surfboards to the different surf breaks. The truck also works great for giving locals a ride around town :) Also, make sure you have GPS that works because until you know your way around the area, it will be difficult to find where you are going.

If you ever plan to visit SJDS, I highly recommend staying at Bahia Del Sol as it will make you feel like your home away from home but with a great vacation vibe. Everyone in our group had an excellent time and would definitely stay there again.

“Lovely well position luxury villa in quiet area of town”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This is truly a great deal. A genuine fully equipped high end villa in one of the most happening beach towns San Juan Del Sur.

This is a true value proposition compared to similar quality villas in the USA. The staff are friendly and at tentative and the villa we stayed in (#7) overlooks the pool and had a great view of the the Bay.

The villas are located in the quiet part of town and is about a 15 min walk to the main centre so no really a place to stay for the party set.

The town is fantastic and there is a lot of night life and good restaurants.

Highly recommend both this accommodation and San Juan

“Not so Secret Gem”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I've been staying at the Villas for about 5 years. At least two or three times per year. Unfortunately, the VIllas have gained popularity so they are not as exclusive as they once were. Good for the property owners.

In January, my wedding group took over 4 villas. As always, the management company was flawless. Villas were clean and properly stocked. The pool which was redone last November was cleaner than usual, but still needs to maintained a bit better. Perhaps the filter is not cabale of keeping up with the biological load from all the leaves and flowers that fall in.

Other than maid services, there are no services at this location. Although most restaurants in town with delivery service will deliver to your villa, aside from that it's completely BYO. Stop at Pali in town and stock up.

The staff is fantastic. My niece lost a real diamond earring in the pool and the pool cleaner returned it to her. Note, the value of her earring is probably somewhere around six months of his salary. When I returned a week later, he had found the backing and returned that as well.

If you are looking for a maid service only rental, Bahia del Sol is a fantastic choice.
