My boyfriend and I stayed at El Pacifico Hotel for the entire week for a much needed getaway from snowy NY! This is a fantastic place to stay for couple's or even families, clean, comfortable and just a cool place to stay! Several hammocks on the property was a personal favorite, great to unwind and relax after long days of...

We had a couple of friends recommend this place from their last trip to San Juan del Sur. As a matter of fact, we followed their recommendations and arrived to the Hotel El Pacifico without any notice. We felt just like home! The owners sure know how to take care of their clients. First of all the place is really...

My wife and I ate at El Pacifico on several occasions. Breakfasts were lovely especially when home made bread or muffins were served. We had a few speciality dinners served on Sunday nights and they were outstanding. The owners Chuck and Jennings were very friendly and made our dinning experience top notch. Being new owners they are certainly trying to...

Me and my girlfriend booked 3 nights at this hotel, but after 2 nights we decided to stay more nights as the value we got for what we paid was amazing.

Really nice smaller hotel with awesome new owners! Chuck and Jennings are really friendly and accommodating to guests. They make you feel like you are welcome, and give the place a feeling of being at home abroad. The place is about a block from the beach, and restaurants and bars are easily accessed by walking down the beach.

The brand new owners, Chuck and Jennings, are working hard to make this an even better place to stay in San Juan del Sur. The rooms are large with LOTS of hot water.

It was great having you - thanks for extending your stay with us! We have been serving a lot of dinners the last week or so, and will be better able to do that once we have the new fridge. The internet upgrade happened today (YAY!) and it is much faster. We'll hope that it is more reliable as well....
