A friend and myself came here for a little getaway while visiting her in Nicaragua. The location is fabulous, just a short walk to a beautiful beach. The rooms are quaint and comfortable, not that we spent much time in there. I absolutely loved their big deck, so relaxing to sip coffee and watch the sun come up on the...

I came here the first time to escape the noise of the city and was not disappointed. The place is peaceful and the restaurant serves some of the best food I had in Nicaragua.The beach is a minute's walk. San Juan Del Sur is a 20-minute taxi ride away.

For the most part, this was a sweet place to stay. I would definitely recommend it if you are care-free and showering matters little to you. The porch and dining area were beautiful. Filled with tables, rocking chairs and hammocks and a view of the beach. It felt like paradise and the PERFECT place to put my feet up at...

We would like to thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It is too bad that we were not able to communicate how difficult it is for us to obtain water. In our country, as in many others in the world, we suffer from water shortages and people even die from lack of this vital resource. The...

My friend and I stayed here for a week. It is clean and the staff are personable and helpful. The food was good. In retrospect we now would stay at one of the beaches farther north. The facility was quite nice. We have no complaints.

We did not stay at this hostel, but we had a wonderful meal here. The food was great, and the deck has a beautiful view looking out over the beach. Fans and comfortable chairs. Relaxed and quite atmosphere. We were very happy to find this place.

Staying down the road but the food here is so delicious we keep coming back! The staff is very friendly and amazing. Plus it's only steps to and overlooking our favourite beach in Nicaragua! Definitely try the jalapeño steak and the garlic fish - our two favourites! Highly recommend!!
