“Beautiful pool, clean rooms, friendly staff”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

With its pool and the proximity to the beach, this is a nice place to stay for a few nights. The rooms are clean, there is A/C, hot showers and wifi in the rooms. However, the wifi signal was weak in the pool area and unfortunately you can only hang around at the pool until 9pm. Breakfast is included and was good enough.

Everyone at Gran Oceano was very friendly to us the entire stay. We were the from the end of Feb. through the middle of Mar. About two and a half week total. The rooms were very clean and actually had to ask them not to clean so often because it wasn't necessary. The girls that severed breakfast are very patient with me speaking very little spanish. The gentleman that ran the front counter was also awesome with answering any questions we had. He even worked out a better deal for us than we booked for online. Great place and perfect location!!!

Room Tip: Stay upstairs if you can. Tour groups can be kind of loud if you don't.

Had a quick trip to San Juan Del Sur. A friend booked the last room. The hotel room had Queen bed and a bunk bed. There were 3 of us. A wee bit small for all of us adults, but hotel is safe, good people and a good value. Beautiful swimming pool too.

No complaints here. Friendly staff. Alba at the front desk was always very helpful and accommodating. $285.00 in total for 4 nights through booking.com. Paid full in cash upon arrival, after calling ahead and speaking with Marlon to confirm that this was OK to do so, and to avoid money transfer deposit.

Perfect central location in the first block from the beach. Very well maintained and attractive facility, clean comfortable room, with good A/C, & a ceiling fan. Fair price, free breakfast with a choice of ham eggs, toast, and rice & beans, or fresh fruit, along with fresh juice, coffee and tea. Nice pool, free wifi in the lobby area. Parrots in cages in the open-air outside dining area were fun to listen and talk to. Saw no bugs in the room, and everything functioned perfectly just as it should. Big shower with hot & cold water. Secure gated parking, security on site, precision wake-up call (by knocking on door - no phones in the room).

Overall an excellent choice, and we would certainly recommend and return to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor, near the back, on the parking side, and it was fine.

We stayed here unplanned when we realized we had mixed up our dates and arrived a day too early for our house rental! While the room was simple, it had AC and TV, and the best shower I had in 2 weeks in Nicaragua (at much more expensive hotels!). The rate included breakfast, which was was just fine. The pool was great, and it was nice to be able to securely park our rental car. The hotel needs a few updates, but was very clean and the location great. The staff were very sweet with our kids, and the atmosphere was very laid back. When we left our sun hats at then pool, the staff eagerly returned them to us at breakfast the next morning, us having not even registered yet that they were missing. Is this a fancy hotel? No. But it was a great little find and I would return.

We stayed here for three nights. Do your booking through booking.com as it is half the price of the hotels website. Try to get a first floor room as these are twice the size of the ground floor rooms. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast is basic but ok. It is located in the middle of town and close to beach and bars and restaurants. Nice and quiet at night.
