Reviewed 11 June 2014

We stayed with 3 kids (3,6,9). It was a good proximity to town, close but not too close. Great to have the pool and the beach, but beware the pool does not have a shallow end. It starts at about 4 feet deep. So you will be swimming with younger kids. The staff was nice but not overly helpful or friendly. The breakfast was included with our $90 double. So not a bad deal. It was fine for 2 nights but SJDS is not the place for families. It's a surfer hub and the beach isn't great for kids. Rough, a little rocky and a little dirty.

Price is right and the location is amazing. We would return. San Juan del sur is a beautiful community and we really enjoyed being this close to all of the action. The breakfast in the morning was very good too!

Thanks a lot for your time for write this review. We love to improve thanks to reviews from our guests, we read them all and we try to correct everything that we can. San Juan is a place chosen by many to relax and others for partying, these two atmospheres sometimes intersect and it is Difficult to control.

We hope to see you in San Juan del Sur

We paid $125 US including taxes for a double room with a shared balcony. Older looking and very simple room. Had thought it was worth it for the location which the reviews were raving about. Unless your plan is to go between the pool and beach all day long, it's not worth it. The walk back from town is long and hot and as a result would have rather been right in town. It's not quieter on the side of the hotel anyway as there are discos on that side of the bridge which are very loud. Sunday especially, our room was vibrating from the music! On the positive side the staff are lovely and it is very clean. The breakfast is the same each day and not that special. A friend stayed at Hotel Colonial for $35 a night and was thrilled so we felt a bit ripped off given how much we paid in the end.

Room Tip: Note that the rooms with a balcony do not actually have a balcony. Your small window overlooks the w...

Thank you for your time and for write this opinion about us. We are trying to improve everyday in all the small details of the hotel. We work hard for that .

The hotel where his friend slept and HC liri hotel are absolutely different, according to the ranking of opinion on this page we are between 5 and 6 post and the other hotel is the 19, in SAN JUAN DEL SUR there is also a big difference in the score that gives us the page through booking.com customers.
I think that HC Liri is on the beach, in front of the sea, It has a pool, It has gardens, Excellent attention and service to our customers and we have parking. In my opinion we are talking about very different hotels and therefore with different prices.

I remember that you were 4 people, you were in the SUPERIOR CUADRUPLE ROOM Located in a large terrace WITH OCEAN VIEWS AND breakfast included.

We expect to improve and learn from criticism such as yours to which the following guests are much better. Thanks a lot

Stayed five nights before Easter. The staff were great giving us tips on which restaurants to visit. Don't miss the beaches away from San Juan, Hermano will take you there. The Disco is a bit loud but the air con distracts.

I used TA to track this gem down and so glad I did! The location is the best - just a short walk across the suspension bridge into town. It's far enough from the hustle but so easy to get involved if you want. The disco mentioned in other reviews wasn't an issue as it wasn't open but we were there from a Mon-Thurs so maybe it's only a weekend thing. In any case, if you are in rooms 1-5 you're not facing the water and might not hear it anyway. The A/C fan just drowns out excess noise anyway.

The breakfasts were all delish - different variations on eggs, rice and beans plus fruit - but perfect.

The down sides:
- the bed was pretty hard...I was travelling with my thermarest and used that on top of the mattress for 2 of the nights
- the water in the shower was low pressure and pretty cool. Not a huge deal considering it's warm out but made it difficult to wash my hair.

Overall a really wonderful stay. I didn't want to leave!

This hotel came recommended to us on the ferry right over from Ometepe Island. German and all of the staff were absolutely wonderful. They arranged for fishing, snorkeling, and body surfing. They also arranged for transportation back to my Managua. The breakfasts were fabulous.
The rooms are nice and it's especially nice to be able to get out onto the deck with Hammacks and chairs where you can socialize with other guests if you want to. The only drawback was on the weekend there was a bar that played loud bass music which could be heard from the hotel. Still I would recommend this hotel and it's wonderful location across the suspension bridge.

We ended our 6-week Nicaraguan adventure with a week at HC Liri at it was amazing! Everyone working there was most friendly and accommodating - and so were the other guests! The breakfast was always delicious and served with many smiles! My husband even got a special breakfast on our last day! It is the perfect walking distance from the heart of the action and the water-front location cannot be beat! I was truly very sad to say goodbye and leave this hotel. We will be back! The rooms are small and simple but it was all we needed. The pool was great with plenty of shade available. There is a hostel next door but it was not an issue. Please visit them if you can!
