“Good value, great location, friendly staff. Would stay again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

We stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful experience. We had a great room with good bed, very clean and perfect bath all with airconditioning. Ask to see your room first though because some had very tiny room. We lucked out. We loved the wide and deep porch with hammocks and hung out regularly with a rum or beer at night just enjoying the evening breeze. Pool is small but we were more interested in beach and swimming there so no worries. The staff was very friendly and when we were there they had an "honor" bar self-serve. Just 3 blocks to the beach and so convenient to all restaurants. The typical Nica breakfast of eggs, fruit, rice, beans, breads, juices and endless coffee was immense and included in the room rate. We tried another place on a different visit and will stick to this hotel in the future. We purchased property outside San Juan del Sur so we will be back!

Room Tip: Ask to see your room before you commit. Some are very spacious but a few are tiny.

Close to everything. The only thing I did not like was that the room had a very small window. Other than that, the a/c worked good, the bed was ok, bathroom had hot water. The breakfast was decent. and the WIFI connection worked very well. The staff was great. The lady who worked at the front desk was very friendly and helpful

Room Tip: The suite above the reception area has windows overlooking the street and the beach

I was here for a brief stay and I would return if I came back to SJDS. The location is great, right on the beach. Many bars and restaurants in the area. The hotel is run by friendly people who seem to want to help although not everyone speaks English. The night guard was very helpful one evening when we where trying to find a particular restaurant. Rooms are plain and simple, fairly small and the beds are reasonably comfortable.


Prices are high, but SJDS is expensive so I suppose it is par for the course.

The staff are great and the breakfast was great. Rooms clean and plenty of towels. The staff set us up with horseback riding and deep sea fishing. Well two dreams came true..running a horse through the surf on an empty beach and catching a 40 pound DORADO. It was good eating...Gerald

We felt right at home the moment we walked through the door. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The area is known for it's restaurants and bars. You can wonder aimlessly like we usually do and find the most amazing places. We asked the front desk for a good local spot and they gave us great advise. The decor is eclectic Moroccan in a modern style. The rooms are clean well appointed and artistic. We are from California and like the smaller boutique hotels so this place was right up our alley.

I stayed here with a friend of mine, and you couldn't ask for a better location in San Juan Del Sur. Right on the beach, next to all the bars and party spots in town. The Staff was awesome, super helpful. There isn't hot water, but from what I understand there aren't any hotels/hostels in San Juan Del sur with hot water except Pelican eyes. If you're looking for a place to crash right by the beach, this is the place to stay.

We stayed 3 nights, room was very very small, Once we open the door, bed is just in the front of us. No space at all, we couldn't open the refrigirator without moving our luggage(we just brought small trolley).Only bath towel provided, no face towel nor small towel. Every morning we were asked if room require cleaned up. If it's the "hotel", every day cleaning and linen change should be mandatory. One day, althoujgh we requested room to be cleaned up, house keeper did nothing but just put new bath towel on the bed. Beds have not made up, floor and bath not cleaned up.
Front person could not provide necessary information about tour or taxi rates. They leave before 7pm, after it, only security guy left and couldn't help anything about travel advise.
Breakfast was advised to start from 7:30, but at 7:30 is the time kitchen staff start to arrive, taken more time until breakfast served.
Very noisy in the night because bar along with the beach road kept making big sounds of music.
