    There's something magical about this little beach community.

    There's something magical about this little beach community. The vibe and energy are great- restaurants and bars with excellent food & drink everywhere. Locals and tourists are friendly and helpful. We know a tiny bit of Espanol but were able to communicate with no issues, and English is spoken more prevalently than I had expected. Can't wait to visit again!!

    It is a busy town, with lots of surfers and retired folks living or visiting. Lots of motorbikes for getting around. Some excellent restaurants along the beach front including Henry's Iguana Bar, and Maggies' Restaurant up the street. Good fish tacos at little kiosk. Great beach walks, lovely sunsets and a few hikes to do. One to the Jesus protecting the bay and the other to the lighthouse on the opposite side of bay. Wear good shoes for those.

    Great little beach town with numerous bars and restaurants with amazing sunset views. Very walkable even in flip flops. Not a bad meal to be found! Lots of fun places to watch American football if you like that.

    everything is walking distance, you can get to the know the town easily just walking around. I liked Vivian restaurant, nice place, clean, friendly staff. the beach was full of trash... plastic trash, cups, bottles, cookie wraps, cans... trash all over the sand and in the ocean and for some reason nobody seems to care. it was very impressive and quite sad. Looking Good Surf House was a great place to stay!

    The town wasn't as bad as I was expecting!

    The town wasn't as bad as I was expecting! pretty calm in the day and evening, not sure about after that! we were there 2 days and for us that was just right. We went to Remanso beach one day and Maderas beach the other. Rented boards at each and tried to surf! Maderas waves were better, at least when we were there in April. We were at the beaches for about 5 hours each day. I didn't love the fact that Remanso had no shade and neither seemed to have much for facilities, except the few bars/restaurants that you kinda had to eat/drink at in order to have some shade or a shower or somewhere to hang out. Not really my favourite scene. SJDS itself was small town seeming in the center and easy to get around walking and lots of food options and the beach in town was great to explore with the kids, swim or watch sunset. It's easy to get in and our of either on bus from Rivas or taxi- 20$ from the Ometepe Ferry for 4 of us. 25$ to the border organized through Casa Oro.

    In the town there are a lot of open sewers and the smell is bad in many places. There is a lot of trash here and there. There is a lot of trash around the beach. The food is ok, the prices are alright. The better prices are away from the beachfront. Tamarindo is a much nicer and cleaner beach. The Nica's need to clean up the trash and the open sewers.

    Breakfast was great, really enjoyed the traditional Nicaraguan breakfast. Their pancakes were fluffy and yummy. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. The property is nicely tucked around a corner of a street where it’s not too loud or not too quiet despite being very close to all the restaurants. Loved their porch for eating breakfast in the morning and the pool is a nice hang out spot. Very easy to get around and even catch the bus to Rivas. ATM is nearby and main attractions too.

    The property is beautiful and the staff were amazing. Great place to be a little further from the downtown area of San Juan Del Sur to enjoy a peaceful view. The property is on top of a hill and not every taxi driver can get up it, especially during rainy season. The hotel staff does have recommend taxi drivers and the were very available. We also enjoyed the two dogs and cats around the property. They were all very friendly and we made great friends with Taco the cat.

    It is a quiet and clean place close to the market, restaurants and the music bars in San Juan del Sur. This place has a clean kitchen and comfortable places to sit on sofas, chairs or hammocks. Maria studied English at elite international schools in Managua and was a corporate lawyer from a powerful family with high-level connections in government. But you need to think about your safety and security here.

    Right in the center of San Juan del Sur, every commodities are in walking distance. Javier is incredibly helpful and available for any questions you may have. They are a lovely family business, very friendly and welcoming. The hostel is cosy and has all the basic things you may need. We were staying in a private room with AC, perfect for the few nights we spent there. I would go back :)

    We kept coming back here as we passed through San Juan del Sur. Very nice and clean space with a big breakfast. I recommend you ask for the upstairs room if you go private as they are super airy and you get lots of privacy with a hammock. They also let us leave some stuff there in between our visits which eased our load a lot. ALSO, it's right next to the best comedor I've been to!!!

    This is a great place to hang out with the family for a few days. Our room was huge with everything you need including a big comfy king size bed. The pool area is excellent and the place is very well maintained and beautifully planted. The food is amongst the best we tasted in Nicaragua and the waiting staff in the restaurant were also incredibly friendly and attentive.

    Breakfast was amazing as all the food was. The common area of the pool and restaurant to hang out in was fantastic. Meet some great travellers. No Children until 15 allowed and we loved that. There is a a shuttle a few times a day into San Juan Del Sur that was handy for barring into twin. Great walking path down to the local and fantastic Playa Maderas.

    The place itself is not nice at all, not very charming or anything, but has the necessary things (beds, bathrooms, mirror, fan) and is what you can expect for the price. It does the trick for a cheap place to stay. No AC, we didnt encounter much in Nicaragua, but the fan above the bed was very powerful and kept us cool throughout the night which was great.

    Best place we’ve stayed at so far on our month long Nicaraguan adventure! A short walk to the beach and near plenty of restaurants and stores. The property was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The WiFi was strong and made working remotely seamless. There is also a nice kitchen on the property if you prefer to make food.
