Barrio Café Hotel, San Juan del Sur
Great option for SJDS!
Such a great choice. Very comfortable beds, great AC, superb room service. Water pressure was moderate but was actually good after a long day in the sun. Breakfast options with the room were above average in regards to choice and amount of food compared to other local spots. Shaded veranda on the roof with hammocks was a great option for me in the AM while my husband slept. Highly recommend, we will return.

Very Good8.0
Staff were really helpful and friendly. Fantastic location. Loved that it is local business - 100% Nicaraguan owned and staffed. Really comfy beds though with 2 queens in room, little other space. Great bathroom with storage, etc, My main issue is that it feels a bit money grabbing - breakfast included but you can only have one coffee, or are charged (US priced) for extra, and only the 3 cheapest options on menu, are allowed for hotel guests, everything is about tips and more tips (but that is also SJDS).

Barrio Café Hotel, San Juan del Sur
Great location.
We loved rocking up to SJS and finding this as our welcome. One complaint would be the internet was very temperamental - which in this case worked in my favour as I was trying to avoid work for a change. However, any other time it would have been a major issue. This and the food/drinks are a little expensive so we never ate on site other than the free breakfast. Get the pancakes - with syrup.

Nice property with a good restaurant. Only issue is you are on a street that is very loud all night.
