The villa was very enjoyable to stay in, however there were at times, ants on the ground floor. The AC was nice to have, and the cleaning service was good. The villa restaurant was average and pricey. The service and staff were friendly, prompt, and attentive. The best part about the villa was the ease of transportation to and from...

Off the top of my head here are a couple of words I would describe the resort: safe, good value, quiet and peaceful, friendly service, spacious rooms and excellent view. The staff was attentive and provided excellent recommendations. The pool was well maintained and the view of the ocean was excellent.

Really debated between a 3 Star Review vs a 4 Star Review,,,, 3 is average and I'd say this is an average hotel, but compared to most hotels in SJDS, this is a bit better.... The rooms/villas are clean and confortable, AC was NOT adequate for the upstairs bedroom, but the downstairs bedroom had a separate AC unit which made...

There are not many alternatives in San Juan, so this hotel doesn't have to do much to stay in business. However, this is changing, new hotels and B&Bs are opening up as this region is becoming more popular travel destination. Villas de Palermo will have to upgrade with raising competition. The front desk staff will have to be trained to...

This is a great place to stay if you are looking to be away from the chaos near the beach. Our villa was spacious and comfortable. When we decided to go eat at the restaurant, my son and I sat by the pool. The wait staff were mocking guests the whole time and they even said, "this guy must have...

Dear Guest. This is a really rare situation, about the comments the staff did about saving money to come to Villas de Palermo, All our guets are the same for us specially people from Nicaragua and Hispanic people, our goal is that everyone know Villas de Palermo and have an unforgettable experience.

Large spacious units, free shuttle to town, nice pool, would stay here again. Highly recommended. Bar & restaurant on premises but also full kitchen in units so can eat in too. Receptionist at front desk not the best

The villas are beautiful, spacious, comfortable and located on the hill overlooking the bay of San Juan del Sur. Ours was very well equipped for a long stay and was handed to us impeccably clean. The service however was awful - don't eat there or expect anything from staff, as guests/clients we felt we were treated as an inconvenience. In...

I absolutely loved this place. Everyone was so nice and helpful. They had happy hour drinks pretty much all day. We only planned to stay 4 days but we ended up being there for a week and a half! Downside is that in every place in San Juan del sur the power goes out regularly so hopefully they'll fix that...

This is my third time in San Juan and I really enjoyed staying at this place! Staff was amazingly accommodating! Really helpful in coordinating travel from airport and to other cities/local beaches.
