I came upon this place by pure happenstance after taking the dirt road in from Rivas. I saw the sign and just stopped in. What a great choice! I hadn't read any reviews (I have since) so was totally unbiased either way. The owners were gone and the place was being managed by a neighbor. In my opinion, it is... More

I booked here on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed here. It appears we had two very different experiences. I was traveling with a friend so between us we had 2 rooms, both very similar. I require clean with basic necessities ( i.e. working bathroom and lighting and safety). While i had a working bathroom it was so... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the El Pacifico Hotel! Actually, we wanted to stay for only two nights but extended it to eight nights. The owners Chuck and Jennings are welcoming and nice people, who always took care of us. The pastries Jennings is backing for breakfast are really delicious, best ones we had so far.

Just a few of the highlights with this accommodation, only stayed a few days thank god as I'm sure these would have been seamlessly extended had we been unfortunate to have stayed longer. 1. Broken glass appeared outside our bedroom door. We swept it away, but thanks for that. 2. 'Breakfast!' An abuse of the word - a small muffin... More

We really enjoyed our stay at El Pacifico. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with all our needs. Our room was very spacious and we had our fist hot shower in weeks lol Also it's a 5 minute walk on the beach close to everything happening in town. I'm glad to recommend the place!

We got a corner with no ac. The cross breeze and fans were just fantastic. All rooms have screens and a view. A great breakfast with coffee and dinner to order. The three minute walk to the beach was perfect.

The El Pacifico Hotel was an absolutely perfect place for my husband and me. It's a 2 minute walk to the gorgeous beach, less than a 10 minute walk down that beautiful beach to the town, a (steep!) 10-15 minute walk to the Jesus statue and incredible views, and a 10-15 minute drive to some of the best surfing beaches...
