Arrived at San Juan which was rammed for Semana Santa and were unimpressed by the beach there. Took a day trip out here and absolutely loved it. Great beach, huge and really empty despite it being high season. The food and drinks here were great and service was spot on, sometimes a little slow but who cares when you're on...

The beach is awesome and the people from the bar was really nice, but the place is full of bugs around the bar, it doesn't smell well, the rooms are not that clean and we wake up with some marks in our legs of bugs.. like fleas bite us. Gross definitely disgusting. It's a shame.

Drove here one day to check it out. Large beach with great waves. Service on the beach with drinks and food. Free use of lockers as well which was an added bonus. Would go again. Rentals are also offered for boogie boards and surf boards

Playa Hermosa is a beautiful beach. Unfortunately the only way to enjoy this pristine coastline is dealing with the terrible, abusive management at the hotel/restaurant. I've been here dozens of times over the years, and recently it has gotten worse and worse. The food and drinks have gotten terrible and ridiculously expensive, which is compounded by the ever-increasing "cover charge"...

Was greeted to the hotel with a complimentary cocktail as the manager gave us a briefing of the facility. Very helpful and friendly staff. The food was fresh,very flavourful and beautifully prepared. Although there were lots of surfers and sunbathers on the beach during the day, they went home at the end of the day and only the hotel guests...

This is a beach about 8 miles south of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. I do not know that you will find a more beautiful beach anywhere: expansive, flat, you can wade into the surf without fear of hitting a rock or a hole, beautiful and relaxing waves come over you. The staff at the faciiiy is attentive, variety of...
