“Amazing views and location”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

We ended our trip through Nicaragua here and are so glad we did. The condo was huge and full of light with amazing views of the ocean. The location is excellent since it is not "in" town, but an easy walk to town (although not a good walk to attempt in the dark since the road is narrow and not well lit). The staff was also excellent -very responsive to our needs and always very friendly. The bedrooms (three) were huge and cool with TONS of storage and the bathrooms (two and a half) were also nice. We would stay here again in a second!!!

Keep in mind:
1. The pool is very nice, with a bathroom and outdoor shower and shallow area for children. However, you'll have to keep a close eye on active little ones since one side of the pool drops off suddenly into the swim up bar area (we never saw it in use) and one end drops suddenly down a steep hill (they have put terra cotta planters here to try to block this area, but we still had to closely watch our kids).
2. As explained above, the location is fabulous if you want quiet relaxation within a decent proximity to town without being in town. However you'll likely accrue taxi costs as a result and many taxis wouldn't take us back to our hotel or who would charge us extra because they had to leave the paved road and enter the few blocks of unpaved access to the hotel which does a number on their cars (understandable).
3. Having a kitchen and access to a washer/dryer (for an additional cost) is great, but keep in mind you will have to stock up on all amenities yourself - including things like salt/pepper, paper towels, etc. The Pali grocery store is not far and an easy cab ride.

we have stayed at several places around San Juan Del Sur. This place has a great location, nice views and large units. the A/C worked great and the pool was fine. The condo we stayed in was in dire need of a fresh coat of paint and there was garbage all over the grounds. With a little TLC and a good cleaning this would be a fantastic property.

Bahia del Sol was much better than we expected. The villa was extremely clean with every amenity you can think of. The bedrooms are spacious with a lot of closet space, the living room and dining room were very comfortable and the 2 1/2 baths were large. The views from the private balconies from the master bedroom and the patio were beautiful that included the beach and seaside mountains. It is a 5 minute drive from da flying frog zipline adventure, and a 15 minute walk to downtown, which has a lot of wonderful restaurants. Staff was friendly and was bilingual and they go out of their way to make sure everything is ok. The pool was cleaned every morning at 6 am and was wonderful. I will definitely return to the property when in town.They made an overnight run to the grocery store for us, so we could have it in the morning.

The villas at Bahia del Sol were great. The villas are about a 20 minute walk into town. The balconies have a great view of the statue and the town/bay. It is a quick drive to the Pali grocery store to stock up on food, snacks and drinks. Staff was very friendly and spoke English very well, they helped us set up all our day excursions and gave great advice for things to do. The villa was clean and spacious. I would definetly recommend this place, it was a great stay and a great staff.

This hotel was excellent. An easy ten/fifteen minute walk into town. Very friendly and bilingual staff. Safe town, safe area. The hotel has everything you need. Clean rooms and bathrooms. A/C in bedrooms upstairs. 2.5 baths in the villa. Kitchen has six burner gas stove (matches are in the cupboard), pots and pans, coffee maker, full size refrigerator, and bottled water for cooking and drinking. They will even go to the grocery store for you! Can't say enough about this property and staff.

Its a hidden gem and turned out to be way nicer than we had expected. The villas are extremely comfortable - away from the hustle bustle at a 10 mi walk from the city centre. The service is excellent and the staff speaks good English. The pool is clean and a good way to relax after spending the entire day on the beach. The villas have a great view and it was a treat to have your morning coffee with the blue ocean sights. Small tip - There are no cabs to be found late in the night so be prepared to walk back - we were a bunch of friends and did not feel unsafe but just a consideration to keep in mind. The staff did help us with many rental car / cab recommendations.

When we booked the facility we did not understand it was three bedroom, for my wife and myself. So, go with three couples, at $150 per night, $25 per person, it was superb. The pool is great and you can walk to the beach and downtown San Juan del Sur in about 15-20 minutes, or drive in 5. There is a great little fish market on the south end of the downtown area, where I bout 2 kilos of large shrimp, 10 lobster tails and a three pound red snapper for $26 USD. We ate like kings and the local rum is inexpensive and the best I have ever had,
