My boyfriend and I travelled to Nicaragua the end of March-beginning of April and this was the first place we stayed at. The hotel itself is beautiful, very bright and colourful and welcoming. We stayed in room #3 but very single room has a beautiful view overlooking the bay. There is a lovely little pool that is great if you...

We knew we wanted to stay in a quieter area just outside of San Juan Del Sur which is exactly what El Jardin offers. We had a vehicle and we found the hotel easily. The room was clean and quaint and the view from our terrace was beautiful. The onsite manager was friendly and helpful and incredibly accommodating with our...

I stayed one night at Le Jardin and I had a wonderful time. The view is stunning! The room was very nice, clean and quiet. I ate a goat cheese salad and It was very delicious. The breakfasts are awesome too. It is true that it is far from the city but that is exactly what I wanted and it...

Hi Nathalie, Thanks for the good review and glad you enjoy your stay at our hotel. Indeed, this is the perfect place to relax and chill if you don't want to be in the crazyness of San Juan del Sur. Hope to see you back then and have a good day!

Our family of 3 stayed here for 3 nights. We had a car so the location of 4 km outside of town wasn't the biggest of deals but directions to the hotel would have been useful as signage is lacking and we struggled to find it the first time. Our room was right off the breakfast area which was not...

Hi there, Thanks for your review. We are indeed in a transition phase but willing to do our best to make this place better. Your comments are very useful and we will try to take them into account going forward. We are moving the restaurant long term so might be quieter for the guests staying near this area. We are...

Our sheets were white and crisp and the towels thick. Tile and cement painted in colors of the sea and sun, a walk in shower...everything was immaculate. Absolutely stunning view from pool area.

My husband and I stayed at El Jardin for 1 night and had a wonderful time! As others mentioned, the hotel is on a hill with a breathtaking view of the bay. We are in good physical health and walked to San Juan del Sur (the local bus stopped and picked us up on the way) to tour town and...

We unfortunately spent only one night and were mesmerized. We had probably the room with best view and it was dizzying to look out at the stunning bay every time you turned around. In, short, I would agree with all the other 5-star reviews. Beautiful structure and pool, stunning view location, good food, very nice owners. Perfect visit and would...

This is our seacond visit to El Jardine and we cannot recommend it enough. Timothy and Delphine are the perfect host's. I challenge anyone to find better food and views in all of San Juan del Sur. We stayed 17 days and would have stopped longer if our time permitted. I think we now hold a standing record for the...

I stayed 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. The French family managing this property gives the hotel the feeling of a country inn. There are about 10 rooms in a few buildings, most with front or side patios and many of them designed to take advantage of the postcard views over a very pretty bay. The pool was nice,...

It's a struggle to find anything that really stands out in this place. It's certainly decent enough but is lacking something which is hard to put your finger on. We stayed only one night. We had one of the cheaper rooms and whilst clean and comfortable wasn't supplied with bath towels, even considering that the cheaper rooms are still $70...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Jardin is the perfect place to relax while enjoying amazing views on the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is located up a hill, 4 km (2,4 miles) North from San Juan del Sur. We offer free shuttles to town once a day. Our guests can also spend the day by the outdoor pool where they can enjoy stunning views on Nacascolo bay. Each room has a private bathroom and features charming decor with cheerful colors. Some of them have a private terrace overlooking the ocean which is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. El Jardin's bar & restaurant features both an indoor and an open-air dining area with views on the bay. We serve international food (for example, burgers and tacos) and are also very proud to offer European inspired options (including Beef Bourguignon, Shrimp bisque, Homemade lasagna and many more). The bar is open all day with a good selection of cocktails. ... more   less
