I stayed at the Alcazar for one night on a Friday. I reserved a beachfront room, despite warnings from other travellers, because of the extreme noise from the bars. I guess I got lucky, because even though there was music everywhere, especially coming from the bathroom window, nothing kept me getting a goodnight sleep. Room #4, was large and clean...

The hotel is clean, the staff members are friendly, and the rooms are in pretty good condition. Furthermore, the location is perfect if you want to do a little partying because it’s very close to San Juan's nightlife. Nevertheless, it is important to mention that if you’re not interested in the nightlife then it won't suit you, at least during...

I stayed at the Alcazar for 5 nights during the New Years time period in 2 rooms: Pool and Beach view. Both rooms were large, clean and much more boutique-ish than I would have ever expected for a small surf town in Nicaragua. The staff - from Sergio picking me up at the airport to Alfredo and Claudia and Lorna...

First - your expectations have to change being in Nicaragua. That being said..this hotel is extremely overrated. It has the look and feel of a nice hotel, but I wasn't impressed for the price. Pros: Great A/C, good view of the beach (if you have ocean room), close to everything in town, good bed, little pool Cons: the power went...

I wish I read some reviews before booking this hotel, which looked quite ok during the day, but turned into an absolute nightmare at night with some incredibly loud music going on and on all night long in the nightclub in front of the hotel. The noise itself is crazy, but the real problem is that windows and walls are...

Highly recommended. Right in front of the beach and so close to everything. Rooms are fresh and clean, service is amazing. Continental breakfast is fresh and tasty. They really pay attention to small details.

Doubtlessly, this hotel is filled with elegance and local details that make it a unique hotel in front of the beach. The pool and decoration let you get relaxed in comfort. Customer service is so good that makes you feel souranded by people who really cares about your stay not only at the hotel but at the beach town.

The Alcazar is a very nice hotel for a decent price. The hotel offers the standard amenities that Americans have come accustomed to when traveling stateside. Read some reviews and you'll learn that the hotel is across the street from a bar that sits on the beach. Yes, it is loud when the tourists are partying, but I stayed here...
