Room was clean and fresh, quiet, good size. Good TV choices on channels in English as well as Spanish. Great air conditioning. Hot water mostly consistent. Trick is to turn it off after a few mins then turn on again. Wonderful friendly service in the restaurant. Everyone welcoming and relaxed. Must do Sunday Funday! Excellent times :) Great breakfast! Especially for hangover day! heck out rood top terrace, very relaxing having a drink and chilling on the comfy hammocks. Watch the green parrots at 4pm daily. They hang out on building opposite hotel.

Room tip: Be careful on stairs and tile walkway, very slippery when wet! We were #4, was quiet and felt private.

The restaurant is open and has a really nice flow into the hotel. I really liked the creative decore. My husband and I ordered the micheladas worth our meal and we loved them. I ordered the chicken wrap and it was delicious. We also visited because we wanted to check out the hotel rooms for future visits. We asked the clerk to show us a room and we weren't disappointed. They were very modern looking with a sleek design and very clean. We will definitely consider staying here next time we visit SJDS.

Situated in the centre of town it is a great place to stop by for breakfast and lunch. The breakfasts are amazing, we got the breakfast burrito and the thickest, fluffiest pancakes I've ever seen.
More expensive than other places but definitely worth the price!

We spent over a week here and enjoyed the excellent service and welcome air conditioning! The included breakfast featured some delicious options, especially the Huevos Rancheros. The staff were all brilliant and helpful, and the maid service was thorough. We enjoyed a couple evenings in the rooftop hammocks and enjoyed an excellent dinner experience in the restaurant. Altogether we would recommend this place for its professionalism and its unparalleled location in the vibrant heart of San Juan del Sur!

I enjoyed my stay at the Barrio Cafe Hotel. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, nice bedding. the rooms are small, but do the job, the bathroom was very modern and clean, but also very small, The food in the restaurant was awesome, but a bit pricey for Nicaragua. You cant have visitors in your room for any reason, not even tourists.

Room tip: The lower floor rooms are next to the dinning area so it is noisy in the morning. so if yo like to sleep in request the upper floor rooms.
