    An ok option in San Juan Del Sur

    This motel is up for sale right now and being looked after by the real estate agent who is selling it. The location is ok, it is one block from the beach and about a 15 minute walk to town along the beach. It is right at the entrance to the walk to the Jesus statue which takes about 30 minutes uphill. It costs $2 and you get a nice view of the bay etc. We stayed in a deluxe room which was basic. It had aircon but did not have a TV or wifi. Our room was clean when we arrived but wasn't cleaned during our three nights there. Breakfast was good, toast, and pintos gallos with coffee and juice. There is a nice outdoor pool however they rented it out one day while we were staying there . Its not a bad place to stay if you aren't to picky and maybe someone will buy it and fix it up. We might stay here again.

    Quiet resort like hotel on the outskirts

    We stayed in a budget room at El Pacifico, this means no hot water and no A/C. You don't need hot water as it's so hot outside but my husband struggled with the no A/C. Keep this in mind when booking your room. The hotel had a resort feeling with a bar and a pool. The staff are voulenteers on a work away program and very knowledgable and friendly. The location of the hotel is about 15 min from town. You walk along the beach while is both beautiful and peaceful. The only drawback was that it got dark early when we were there (November) and we didn't want to walk homeboy in the dark so often we weren't able to enjoy supper as there's is no food at the hotel. You can also take a cab back to the hotel if your budget allows. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and I would recommend the hotel.

    4/5 Good
