Although we had a beautiful rooftop suite, to access it you have to walk up several flight of steps. It was extremely loud and the metal rafts on the roof kept me up all night as the wind blew. I’ve stayed here several times and never had issues but this time I found stains on the bedsheets and our shower toiletries were never stocked. I assume the location makes it difficult for housekeeping to reach. In short avoid the rooftop terrace room.

This hotel is in the middle of everything. All the bars and restaurants is just a few steps away. The hotel grounds and rooms are in excellent condition.

Best customer service in town with a beach view!!!
Clean hotel with a great view of the beach and great customer service. The hotel was very nice, but the selling point is their professional, accommodating staff. One staff member in particular, Alfredo, treated us like family. He assisted in finding transportation to local beaches, surf lessons, places to eat and visit. He was quick to help us with any questions and share the history of Nicaragua. After being stung by a stingray, Alfredo provided assistance with remedies to treat the pain and cut. Because of him, we will return!! Gracias amigo (ALFREDO) and thank you Hotel Alcazar

Great balcony view, attentive service
The best thing about this hotel was our spacious, well furnished balcony overlooking the beach which is right across the street. The constant sound of the surf enhanced our relaxation. Breakfast wasn't included in our reservation, but the staff served us a generous continental breakfast each morning. For other meals, we enjoyed super fresh fish and lobster at nearby beachfront restaurants. The nearby disco was loud late at night, as noted in other comments. We were able to sleep by closing the balcony doors and running the aircon until the disco closed. We definitely will return despite that flaw.

Right across from the Beach!
The hotel was easy to find and parking in front was free and a breeze. Most people we found touring Nicaragua hadn't rented cars. The staff was attentive and very helpful. The room was very nice and we upgraded to ocean front on the third floor for a couple of nights. The only drawback is the noise at night so we used the proffered ear plugs each night and slept well. We were able to get our coffee and breakfast sent to our room each morning or if you prefer you can eat in the lobby/bar area. This hotel is right in the middle of the entire tourist section so there's a lot of street and pedestrian traffic. Good restaurants nearby as well as many bars.
