We had very low expectations for this property. We were very happy with our stay. Suites were excellent and pool area is nice. Please try the Yoga. The instructor "Joe" is a nice resource for information on the area. Choose the correct beaches and events and you will have a great time. Staff at hotel speaks mostly spanish.

My wife and I started our Nicaraguan honeymoon with a four night stay at Villas de Palermo. We discovered the hotel, and purchased our package through LivingSocial. It was a bit of an impulse purchase, and we didn't do a whole lot of research beforehand - so we didn't entirely know what to expect. Now I can say, even if...

Our stay at La Palermo was amazing. Our Villa was clean, spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. The restaurant was great and the service is very good!

Villas de Palermo is such a treat! I love the view of your own personal villa looking over the valley from the pair of rocking chairs each villa has on its deck. The pool is also amazing! Great view, drinks, and ambiance. I did yoga one morning out by the pool with Vanessa (who has a yoga studio in town)...

The villas are very clean, and comfortable. It has a beautiful view of the town, and just a few minutes ride into town. It's a nice way to enjoy the serenity of the San Juan without the hectic commotion of the center during Semana Santa. The food at Villas de Palermo is amazing, and the pool was so comfortable.

I agree that this is the best location in town. I watched fireworks over the beach two nights in a row last week - while reading a book in bed. No noise, no blowing dirt - just peace and quiet. I like the sounds of all the birds and monkeys in the mornings, too. When I want to join the...

The Villas de Palermo is a nice resort on the hillside above San Juan Del Sur. We stayed for 7 nights and had a great stay. The Villas are very nice with plenty of room for a family of 4. We enjoyed the pool and restaurant with a view. The staff was very friendly and helpful in booking tours to...

We discovered this place on a $499 groupon which provided three nights stay and a $250 credit in the poolside restaurant with its amazing view of the jungle, farmlands and coast. The two bedroom villa, each with ensuite bath, was perfect for our family, a couple with a college-age son. We enjoyed the breakfast choices, drinks by the pool and...

The view was great and the villas were lovely. Maids came every day (even did the dishes!). I loved having a full kitchen. The pool area was nice with a great view too. The sangrias were tasty. :)
