Recent San Juan Del Sur reviews
"We had an excellent time in San Juan and really enjoyed this wonderful home! The townhouse is close to town and is beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well equipped and we made most of our meals there. The pool area and grounds are maintained on a daily basis and are great for relaxing. It was also nice to have access to a Bluetooth speaker and DVD player for when we just wanted to hang out in the unit.
The rooftop patio was an excellent spot to watch the sunset in the bay. The two decks off the back of the unit have comfortable chairs and great views. Monica was very helpful! Thanks again!"

"My husband and I just came back from an 8 day stay at Tortuga Azul with another couple, and to say we had a wonderful time is an understatement! The house is absolutely stunning and the photos do it no justice at all. It is a straw bale construction, so the walls are all curved and organic looking, which is really different to what we are used to in the north but the result is amazing!
The pool and the outdoor area are perfect, so private and peaceful. You really feel like you are out on your own in the middle of nowhere! William the caretaker keeps everything very clean, and we saw only a couple of bugs (no cockroaches-yay!!). The other reviews have talked about how writing things down in english was really the best way to communicate with him and they were not wrong! We had a few minor water problems during our stay and he fixed them within a couple of minutes, he really is a great asset.
The location was great, far enough away from town for it to be nice and secluded, but also close enough that you can walk (during the day time only, and it takes about 30 minutes). Taxis can get a little expensive however, and I think we were overcharged quite a bit while we were there. We were getting charged $15 each way in/out of town, and once or twice we were even charged $20 each way! I have heard that this is unusually expensive, however if it is the norm I would recommend hiring the owners car with the driver Elie as that would probably be cheaper.
Lots of the reviews mention Elie, and he really is such a gem. A genuine person, and he seems to really enjoy his job. The other reviews however make it sound like he is quite readily available, however this was not the case when we were there. We needed to book him at least one day in advance as he was so busy, and he doesn't like to work past 5 as he has 2 young children, so keep that in mind! He will recommend other taxis however if you need them!
The only downside about the house is the noise of the dogs barking at night, but that is nothing some ear plugs can't fix! Also the internet is complicated and slow, but the owners are trying to rectify that!
In short-GO AND STAY HERE!! It was a truly wonderful stay and we can't wait to return as soon as we can!"

"What a wonderful, tranquil place to just relax and soak up the sun. You are surrounded by total beauty. The sounds of the birds, the howler monkey, the high tide crashing at the rocks stir all your senses. Be sure to bring your groceries as you truly are secluded. We found the one restauant to be really good. Do not go when your pressed for time because everything is prepared upon order , but well worth the wait.
The house is well equiped, beautifully furnished, just waiting for you to create great memories. Which we did! The grounds are meticulously manicured with beautiful plants, flowers, trees and so many butterflies. Staff is incredible. Willfredo took us into San Juan del Sur for a day. Much cheaper than renting a car to sit at the beach. Hated to leave , but look forward to returning again one day."

"After living and working here in Nicaragua for 17 yrs it is always nice to find new places that take your breathe away and remind you of the beauty and tranquility that Nicaragua has. This home got us excited from the first moment we placed our eyes on her. It was spacious, at one with nature with it's big screens for bedroom windows, and a great balance for indoor and outdoor options to rest and revive the soul. The beach was not to close, but once you got there, it was as good as any we have enjoyed in the past. Not many will be disappointed by choosing this piece of paradise."
