We spent one night at Barrio Cafe Hotel in order to experience SJDS at night. We arrived quite early from a nearby property and were unable to check in early. We walked around town and laid on the SJDS beach. Having just left 3 days at a surfing beach, we were not terribly attracted to this one. Calm waters but...

First you have to understand San Juan is a surf and fishing town. It's noisey, it's a little crowded, and it has lots of young people just like small Baja towns in Mexico. So it's all relevant. If you are looking for 5 star resort accommodation don't stay anywhere in San Juan. This hotel was clean, the restaurant was very...

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with my cousin. The hotel is in the centre of town and walking distance to most things. The restaurants has really good food bit it's a bit pricey. The breakfast is big and really good. You can choose from 6-7 items. The waiters are really nice and friendly. We had some issues...

Great location right in the middle of San Juan del Sur. Rooms are very clean and well equipped with hot water, A/C, TV, fan, etc. Breakfast is included. The restaurant is really good, we went for dinner and it was excellent. Not sure if they have a parking lot...we had to park in the street but they kept an eye...

Location could not be better, right in the center of town. Breakfast every morning is a really nice addition. Cute hammocks on the patio and AC is on point! Keep in mind this isn't a fully luxury hotel- Wifi is spotty.

If I had to rate the staff, I'd give them a 5 out of 5. The included breakfast was perfect every morning. The food arrived quickly and was always delicious. Carlos, Alex, and the rest of the guys at in the restaurant were absolute gentleman. And the ladies at the bar & front desk were just as lovely. Rooms were...

My friends and I really enjoyed our short stay at Barrio Cafe Hotel. Not only do the rooms have good air conditioning but the hotel has its own restaurant and bar which makes it easy to grab a drink in the evening. The room we had was clean and the staff was friendly. We also felt safe at all times....

Nice, clean room, comfortable room. Location is perfect, right in the center of everything. Easy to walk to anything you want. Always felt safe. Was nice having the restaurant and bar on site. Would recommend and would go back.

Comfy beds, great breakfasts and an amazing location. You will be close to everything if you stay here. Staff was friendly, and the rooftop terrace was great for viewing the sunsets. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at Barrio Cafe Hotel for 2 nights. Only a block from the beach. Centrally located in the heart of San Juan. Super friendly staff that were eager to help with any needs of ours. Clean rooms and bathrooms. As soon as the sun set, a security guard was at the door checking your name and number of occupants...
