Location: You can't beat the location, directly across from the beach and just removed enough from the main street that you don't have to deal with unwanted foot traffic. Places to eat right down the street, etc. Rooms: We had two different rooms, one "poolside" and one "ocean view." Both were exceptional - clean, great air conditioning, water pressure in...

We enjoyed a pleasant 1 night stay at the Hotel Alcazar earlier this month. The hotel is directly across the street from the main beach at San Juan del Sur. There are restaurants and nightlife within very close proximity to the hotel . The property is very clean and has a great vibe to it. The beach facing rooms have...

No complaints! Which is rare for us, my husband and I. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean. Beautiful location and friendly staff. We had such a relaxing time here and look forward to going back one day. A+ to the entire team at the hotel.

Me and my girlfriend visited Hotel Alcazar on Saturday during low season, and it was a very pleasant stay. From the moment I called to make my reservation, I was attended nicely by a guy named Daniel, he was quick to give me prices, and even gave me a fair warning that sometimes, because of the hotel's location, the noise...

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Alcazar. Our group was in 2 rooms -- room 2 and room 9. Room 9 is on the ground floor next to the swimming pool, while room 2 is up 1 flight of stairs and had a balcony with an ocean view. We drove to San Juan del Sur, arriving on a Saturday, so...

This is in the perfect location to walk EVERYWHERE. We're a mid 30's couple that wanted a nice, clean, comfortable hotel that was within walking distance of everything. Alcazar delivered. The plunge pool is pretty. The price is very reasonable and even includes a light breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee, and banana bread. There is a nice (and affordable) beach...

Really nice hotel, we had the upstairs room which had and awesome patio and views. Room was very clean, spacious enough and had a nice bathroom. We didn't use the pool (really small) or hang out much at the bar. As others mentioned, the breakfast isn't massive, but it was really tasty (lots of fresh fruit and banana bread, coffee)....

I think my only complain about the hotel was the breakfast, it was a light euro-style breakfast. I had gotten accustomed to the filling and delicious Nicaraguan breakfast I had been given in other cities. However, as far as proximity to beach and local food, staff, and ocean views this hotel delivers on all fronts. I had the top bedroom...

Nice hotel with a great location near the beach. This was the "luxury" portion of our trip (we normally travel on a budget) and we were excited to stay here. The rooms are large and beautiful. Unfortunately, there were power outages during our stay. The basics stay running with a generator - but no AC when the generator is running....

Stayed 4 nights in Alcazar and it was very nice. The hotel is clean and staff very attentive. Right across the street from the beach. It gets noisy at night (weekend) as night club is right below. There were flies everywhere! tiny pool.
