El Jardin is the perfect place to relax while enjoying amazing views on the Pacific Ocean. Gorgeous view, Good food, Great wines. Our family run hotel is located up a hill, 4 km (2,4 miles) North from busy San Juan del Sur. We offer free shuttles to town twice a day for those who like a little action. You can also spend the day by the pool where you can sip a cocktail enjoying stunning views on Nacascolo bay. Each room has a private bathroom and features charming decor with cheerful colors. Our Deluxe have a private terrace overlooking the ocean which is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Our restaurant is open for lunch and dinners. We have international food ( burgers, salads, pasta, tacos), excellent meat and we are also very proud to offer European inspired options (including Beef Bourguignon, Tapenade, Homemade fish lasagna and many more). We also have a wonderful selection of Italian and French wines. Looking forward to welcome you!

Very relaxed atmosphere, clean and cosy. Good breakfast and great outside pool. Rooms have all the basic comforts, good bed, airco and an individual balcony to hang out and relax. Raysa and Mirko are the perfect hosts! A bit off the beaten track, but perfect if you look for quiet

How lovely to have lunch at this beautiful small hotel and restaurant with panoramic views and wonderful service. Highly recommended. Next trip we will definitely stay at the hotel. At the Botton of the driveway and across the road is =the beautiful and welcoming beach that you pretty much have all too yourself for $1.00!

I stayed for 2 nights and it was quiet / peaceful and I could take my vacations in a relaxing environment…! The breakfast menu was amazing and they adjusted my food to my intolerance of certain foods… They’re pet friendly and very respectful…

The views at El Jardin are absolutely incredible! The staff was EXCELLENT and we really enjoyed the food! The rooms were clean and comfy. There was AC, as well as, a ceiling fan, which was a really nice treat! Just a FYI - this hotel is AMAZING, but it's not near the city center for SJDS - so if you are looking for a hotel walking distance to the bars and restaurants this is not it.

We wanted to stay in this hotel for 3 nights while beeing in San Juan del Sur. We left after 1 night since we found lots of bugs and even a scorpion in our room. We had a terrible night as we thought that there may be more scorpions. As you can see on the picture below even the bed sheets were dirty. We told the owner and hope that they will do something about it. The only positive thing is the friendly stuff.

We stayed for a night on our way through to Costa Rica. The staff was friendly and accommodating, giving us a free bottle of water each upon check in. Dinner was delicious and served outdoors. Our room was clean, comfy, and large. But the VIEW was the real winner. Our patio opened up to an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Our fan was a bit loud, but with AC we didn’t need it anyway. Howler monkeys and parrots woke us in the morning!

We stayed in Montezuma for 3 nights at this hotel. The location is good - Montezuma is a small town and the hotel is at the start of the town with an easy walk into the centre. (It will only take you 5 mins to walk the whole town). Rooms were a bit dated in terms of furnishings and decor. But comfortable enough. We did have a small problem with ants in our room which the hotel manager said was due to them having sprayed the grounds and so the ants were coming into the room. There was not a lot of them, they were mostly dying, and they did not bite. It was just a bit annoying. There is on restaurant on site so you cannot book breakfast. The hotel does provide filtered water, coffee, biscuits and bananas every morning in reception which was nice. There is no parking on sit, and so you need to park on the road. Montezuma is small and parking can be difficult but we never had to park more than a 2 min walk away. In summary, a nice enough hotel as a base to explore the area. Nothing fancy.

Saw reviews on trip advisor so thought we would give it a go. Nice atmosphere. Food very nice and staff very welcoming. Would return and recommend to others. Seems that this is used by regulars which is always a good sign. Menu was varied and offers something for all tastes.

We stayed two nights and wish we had time to stay longer. The view was amazing from the room, pool area and restaurant. The staff, Dennis and the other seems to really enjoy their work and the road up wasn't to bad even with our small car. We can imagine that is even more beautiful during rain season, but what a treat. The happy hour margaritas was also on spot. We will be back!
