The hotel is DEEP in a rural area you need a well equipped vehicle to make through the dirt road. Customer service was not great. They did not have our room available giving us a smaller room for 2 adults with 2 young kids, with only 1 bed. When we asked for pull out they said they had none. We...

Dear Guest Thank you for staying with us at the Surf Ranch Hotel & Resort. Let me go over your review and point some things out. 1. The resort is 3km from downtown San Juan Del Sur and the road is flat so you do not need a 4x4. It is paved the whole way, except for the last little...

My friends and family spent a week at Surf Ranch and over all we were happy. It was great to see the monkeys every morning. It was nice to be a little ways from town, and the shuttles did run on schedule. (Sometimes very full and sometimes in the back of a pickup truck) The food was always good. Wish...

Dear Guest Thank you for staying with us at the Surf Ranch Hotel & Resort. I am glad to hear you had a great time. The bartenders sometimes get swamped, but our main goal we are working on is to not have guest leave their seats to go ask for something. This concept of service is new here in Nicaragua...

Further to this, we found...

Dear Guest Thank you for staying with us at the Surf Ranch Hotel & Resort. We will look into the ant situation as it has not been reported to us, and the scorpions you will find at any place you stay in Nicaragua, as they come up the shower drains, however they are not harmless and the rooms are fully...

I booked this hotel through Yogaretreats understanding yoga classes were included as I purchased an packet through the hotel. I arrived on Sunday and of course, no yoga classes. The gentleman at the reception had no clue about the yoga classes in town. The rooms were mediocre, had no TV or phones. I was told it caters to people that...

We stayed in this place a couple of weeks ago and had really good time. To be honest we were looking for a very quiet place who hit was. Do not expect too much going on as it is a bit far from San Juan Del Sur and a but in the middle of nowhere but, looking around, I think...
