It faces the beach, right downtown so close to everything, and a super helpful and knowledgable staff. The rooms are fantastic, very simply and elegantly done. Comfortable with huge balconies. The top floor room has its own private deck atop the hotel. Highly recommended!

My wife and I spent 5 nights here from 2/20/14 to 2/25/14 and we were treated great by the staff. The rooms are like new and they are very clean. The staff is constantly checking to see if you need anything and they are so friendly. The lady at the front desk found and scheduled a horseback riding trip for us and it was fantastic. They arranged transportation for us from Managua to the motel and the cab driver they selected was great. He was so nice and helpful and he was like a tour guide on our ride to San Juan Del Sur. The hotel is located in the center of San Juan and it is in walking distance of all the restaurants on the beach and city. We are coming back to San Juan Del Sur shortly and we will definitely be staying at Hotel Alcazar.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the bay. The sunsets are out of this world.

Beautiful rooms, great location, super friendy staff. If you are looking for something quiet, this is not the place, they have several bars nearby. Yes, there is some noise but it wasn't a problem for us once the windows were closed. In fact, we ended up crashing a fun party at the hostel out back.

The rooms are very clean and beatifuly furnished. Our balcony was wonderful - a great view of the bay. I would highly recommend Alcazar for a romantic getaway or weekend of bar-hopping!

The location is perfect. Hotel Alcazar is on the main street facing the beach. It offers rooms with ocean views and terraces. The staff is extraodinarily friendly and attentive. They will help you with anything you need. The rooms are five star wonderful. This is a unique hotel located in the center of the beach so everything is within walking distance. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

My family and I had a wonderful 5 night stay at the hotel Alcazar. We were very impressed with the helpfulness of the employees, the cleanliness of both the facility and our room. They had construction going on at the time of our stay which affected the water pressure at certain times of the day. There's a night club diagonal to the hotel that really gets hoppin' on the weekends. I woke up to a techno sweet-home Alabama at 2am one morning. The hotel does provide ear plugs. Surprisingly, my three yr old was able to sleep through it. The staff at the hotel did forewarn me about this problem. Luckily, it really wasn't a big deal to us. Their pool is well kept and my daughter was able to enjoy it during our stay. No refrigerators in room but staff was able to store my daughter's milk and heat up her bottle for her when needed. Overall, the Alcazar is a little pricey for the San Juan del Sur area but well worth the splurge if you're traveling with children or you need that extra bit of luxury.

I was in San Del sur Nicaragua over Thanksgiving weekend. There was a bit of remodeling being done, but everything was in order. I imagine they are done remodelling by now. They really have a nice thing going for a small quaint luxury hotel in SJdS.
The pricing is awesome for a hotel of this class. You would expect to pay 250-300$ in Costa Rica for the same amenities...and probably wouldn't be as close to the beach.

All the little architectural details and styling in the room is awesome. They are not huge, but certainly comfortable. Each room has a nice size balcony with chairs, plants and a great view of ocean. You can sit there and people watch or go downstairs and in no less then 30 steps you are in the sand. Beautiful sunsets can be seen from the terrace each and every day.

The staff is very helpful. Nelie really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and all the staff always had a smile on their face.

Great restaurants are all within a 1-5 minute walk. Great location, beautiful amenities and a great staff. hotelalcazarnicaragua.com

Room Tip: Feel free to bring some food. They have a large communal fridge downstairs for food, beer, etc.
