    Duvets??

    Good location. Didn’t get the room I wanted. Not sure why the hotel has feather duvet covers in this climate. The world is trying to save energy and you have to have the AC on all the time to sleep. Finally took the duvet out of the cover and just used that.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The downstairs restaurant was DELICIOUS and incredibly reasonable on prices. Open fairly late and a great open inviting feel at the bar. The room was a decent size, noticed only two balcony decks connected to rooms, we had one but never needed it as the third story communal deck is a better view and has hammocks and hang out areas. Would come back again, but also noticed other interesting hotels in SJDS that I’d like to experience as well.

    We enjoyed the hotel at Barrio Café. Extremely convenient if visiting San Juan Del Sur. The prices have great value for the rooms. Great access to surfing. Breakfast was very good, and I’m a picky eater. We would book here again! Also the Margaritas were some of the best in Nicaragua!

    Excellent & Hot Shower

    Excellent Shower with hot water! Excellent breakfast! Super easy check-in & check-out Info said room had 2 queen size beds, but they were only double, so a bit small.
