El Jardin is amazing, and Pierre rules!
Posted May 8, 2015 on Hotels
Pierre, the Belgian who is currently running El Jardin is amazing. The hotel is cleanly, peaceful and really does have the most amazing view of the San Jan Del Sur bay and surroundings you could ask for. The rooms are clean and nice, warm water abounds in the shower (a rarity in Nicaragua), and let me get to the best parts...the service and food. Pierre is an incredible, world class host. Offering you free rides into town as long as he isn't waiting for guest arrivals, and cooking up the best darn food you are going to find in nicaragua, hands down. I had the Mahi Mahi lasagna and the Shrimp Croquettes. Both were the two best dishes I have ever eaten in Nicaragua. We also happened to be there for the Pacman / Mayweather fight. Pierre found the fight for us and we brought in lawn chairs from the pool and relaxed and watched the fight in style. If you are in the area to relax and surf, and simply enjoy the surroundings, this is your spot. And even if you're there to party, this is still your spot. Nicest place you can stay without spending an arm and a leg.
