Like many travelers, I maniacly search the internet for THE place to stay when I go on vacation. Our trip to San Juan del Sur was no exception. So if you are like me and you HAVE to read a million tripadvisor reviews and exhaust every known search engine before you choose your lodging, go ahead....or you could work smart and not hard and follow the advice of everyone who has reviewed Park Avenue Villas. This is THE best place to stay in San Juan del Sur, without a doubt.
The hotel is immaculately clean, inside the rooms/suites and out. You get a kitchen, which is a huge bonus. The high end, tiled, outdoor pool is perfectly maintained and extremely refreshing. Safety is not an issue, because there is a friendly gentleman working the gate 24 hours a day. The rooms have great a/c, ceiling fans, and tons of cable tv channels. Everything is within walking distance...the market, the beach, every restaurant and bar, coffee shops, surf shops...everything...And maybe the best feature is the huge common area overlooking the town and the sea and perfect for sunset watching and reading.
Ralph and Renda, owners of Park Avenue Villas and Texas natives, make you feel at home immediately. They are as gracious as hosts can be. You feel like you are a guest in their home as opposed to their hotel. Not only do they run a great hotel, they are also extremely active in the community, which is another excellent reason to support them.
