I stayed there with my girlfriend for a few nights. The 4 post bed and the shower were very nice, We could not have been any happier. The location is right down town in the middle of everything. The service was amazing and the staff was outstanding especially the manager Marion, very knowledgable and beautiful.

Room Tip: relax and enjoy

We found Hotel Alcazar by chance walking down the street in San Juan. The location was perfect close to our favorite beach restaurant, Henry's Iguana. The view from the room was great too. But the best overall, was the room. So relaxing and modern. The room just felt good, super comfy beds, clean, crisp lines, beautiful deco, plush towels, incredible shower, beautiful furniture inside and on the patio. LOVED IT! Everyone at the desk was super helpful. Pool area is beautiful too. Pool was chilly and wonderful after a long day visiting local beaches. I would love to go back and stay longer on our next visit. Thanks for a wonderful conclusion to our latest Nica trip!!

Room Tip: Higher is better:)

My boyfriend and i stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. The decor is amazing with beautiful finishings, modern 4 poster beds, bamboo detailing on the ceiling, massive raindrop shower heads in the bathroom and a huge balcony. At night i fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. The staff are very friendly and the manager Marion is a fountain of knowledge for all things to see and do in Nicaragua. We'll definitely be back when we next need a few nights of luxury.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Alcazar at the end of our 2 week holiday in Nicaragua. This hotel provided a fitting conclusion to a wonderful trip. The hotel is ideally situated on the 'beach' strip with an incredible view and close to amenities............particularly the beach and bars mere feet away. The rooms were extremely well kept, clean amd replete with all expected amenities. The staff were most courteous, helpful and were fluent in several languages. I highly recommend this boutique hotel to any visitors. I will be back in the not so distant future.

Room Tip: The penthouse, albeit a bit smaller has an incredible balcony and even better view.

Although there are countless hostels and many high end hotels, Alcazar Hotel proved remarkably comfortable, luxurious and best of all, relatively affordable. It is centrally situated in the heart of the action and just steps from one of the most sublime beaches I have ever seen. The rooms are elegant and decorated with varnished teak, creamy white walls, a 42 inch flat screen TV, an extremely comfortable bed with soft linen sheets, cool AC, fast Wifi, and most notably a spacious balcony overlooking the crashing waves below. It gives one a feeling of peace of mind, repose, and good holiday times. Alcazar Hotel is the perfect place to base yourself while you explore the attractions of San Juan Del Sur. It is everything you need and want in a home away from home and I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

On my 2 week trip throughout Nicaragua, I stayed in a wide spectrum of places (pretty much a different place every night). Alcazar had quite possibly the nicest and most comfortable accommodations.

Here are the pro's:
1) it's across from the beach and I had a sweet balcony view
2) very neat and clean rooms, nice bathroom with hot water
3) the only clean and functional pool that I saw the entire time
4) nice front desk woman and doorman.

Here are the con's:
1) at approximately 8am very loud construction work began next door
2) price was higher than most of my other places (~$90 for 2 queen bed room/triple occupancy)

Other:
In regards to the early morning noise.. no matter where you are in Nicaragua, it's difficult to sleep in due to roosters (rural), neighborhood noise (urban), or heat due to daily power outage (Little Corn Island) so don't let this sway you. There is also a flock of bird that chirp up a storm in the tree out front... it's actually pretty cool unless you're easily bothered.

Room Tip: Obviously if you're staying here you want a view of the beach. Second floor with balcony & b...
