“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

My husband and I visited sjds for the first time, we had originally planned to stay at other resorts and another couple we met told us about Park Avenue Villas we scheduled 2 days there and loved it so much we canceled our other plans and stayed 8 more nights:-) Ralph and Renda are the owners and creators of this amazing place and they really have it all figured out you will not want for nothing here because its all in your private villa:-) We sailed with Ralph on his beautiful sailboat and he really puts on quite a show and its an unforgettable experience! The sunsets are AMAZING from their deck everybody meets outside with their cocktail of choice and watches the sunset together! Dont waste your time searching
for other places to stay in sjds you will love it here! The staff is amazing too and they all speak great english! Best location in town we just left today 1-12-12 and we are so sad, but will be back again and again!!

Room Tip: The ritz was great because you have your own private balcony, the palace is another great one its on...

I can't believe I am not living with my friends Ralph and Renda (host and hostess/owners) of this fabulous home away from home. This is the first year we won't be visiting San Juan del Sur for our winter escape. And ESCAPE is what is provided by these lovely accomodations. Not only are the ammentities excellent, but the character of the place is brought out by the staff's professionalism and R&R's graciousness.

We went back to San Juan del Sur in November to check out the "green season". We stayed at the Park Avenue Villas again. Another great experiance and the village and surrounding area was definately different from our last visit in February. Everything was green and lush. One thing that was the same was the wonderful time we had with Ralph and Renda at the PArk Ave Villas hotel. We wouldn't think of staying any where else.

Excellent service and hospitality with kitchen, WiFi, and pool. There is inexpensive laundry service.. They will also bring 5 gallons of bottled water to your room for a very fair price. Schedule a sail with Captain Ralph on the No Bad Days. It will be worth it. There is no smoking in the rooms, but there is a great patio/deck area for that and other outdoor activities close to your room. It also has a great view of the bay.
The beach town of San Juan Del Sur while small is full service and friendly . Everything from expresso ( in town at El Barrio) to lobster ( about 10 bucks US most places) is available. Aged Flor de Cana run is also available in almost every bar for about 1.50 US a shot. There is both a Pilsner ( Victoria) and lagar( Tona) beer widely available both about a dollar. Try the market for fruits, veggies and other fresh food.
There are plenty of Americans and Canadians about with significant numbers of Europeans as well.

Room Tip: Talk to Ralph or Renda about your needs.

Initially we overlooked this gorgeous place since it was not on the strip, but two blocks east (which, honestly, in the long run does not mean anything). After several dives on the strip that were over $100 for a Motel 6 or $200 for a decent room we found this place. The owners were super kind to us. From the start we were provided with ice and a cooler to mix cocktails on the breezeway. We walked down to the beach and swam in the ocean for an hour and headed back for a dip in the pool. The husband (Ralph) came home from sailing in the evening and came out to shoot the breeze with me. He told me that his son lives in San Diego and we discussed a broad range of topics. I found the level headedness and the frankness refreshing. One thing that he said that was really endearing was "How long do we get you guys for?" While we were there only for a nite we wished that we had longer. We were at the point in our trip where we were homesick and it was nice to speak English for a change, it was the end of a long trek and we were getting ready to head back the next day. So glad that we made the trip!! A heart felt Thank You!

We have stayed at the Park Avenue each time we go to San Juan Del Sur. The pool is a great place to cool down and the balcony is the best place to watch the sunset! Very clean and everyone is always friendly.

My husband & I just returned from a wonderful stay at Park Avenue Villas. This is our 4th trip to SJdS, and our favorite. The "condo" that we stayed in (the Ritz) was perfect; clean and a good size. The private balcony was beautiful, and we loved the view of the bay! Our hosts (Renda & Ralph) were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable in their home. We couldn't have picked a better location. It was easy to walk everywhere in the town of San Juan. They were able to recommend places to go, and we really enjoyed ourselves. The photos of the pool are deceiving. I really thought the pool would be small, but it was a great size with a very comfortable bench to relax in. We enjoyed a dip every day we were there. We had such a good time that we're booking our next trip to stay there again in February! Best value in SJdS!
