    Small boutique hotel over looking the river. Beautiful spot but no pool. Not sure any of the hotels there have a pool.

    Sorry for my late reaction. We came from Granada by car, but from San Juan Del Sur I think you can only come there via Managua and then to San Carlos, and from San Carlos you have to take a boat to El Castillo.
