We didn’t have reservations m, but when we arrived to Hotel Alcazar they made us feel welcomed and did everything to make us feel comfortable. A big breakfast was also included. This made us decide to stay 2 more nights!! Restaurants, stores, bars within walking distance and the beach right in front of the hotels!!!

We had a great time at Hotel Alcazar! The staff was so helpful and friendly, they helped coordinate surprises for my birthday and did a wonderful job. The room and view were beautiful and loved that it's right across from the beach. And if you need a break from the sun, the pool area is great! We would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in San Juan Del Sur!

We loved our stay at Hotel Alcazar and this wonderful place is perfectly located by the water in San Juan Del Sur - the view we had from our balcony was incredible. It's clean, the breakfast is local and very tasty, the staff friendly and helpful, the room spacious and the garden with the pool is super cozy. We can highly recommend you to stay in Hotel Alcazar!

Stayed night of 23rd Nov. Took ten minutes for the night manager to open main door as he was too busy filling a carrier bag full of food from the kitchen. They have coffee cups, spoons and kettles in the rooms but they dont supply coffee or milk even when you pay 140 euros per night. Room TV's are very small and are at least 20 years old. Would not stay here again if it was free.

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel and we are so glad that we stayed here. From the moment we walked in Alfredo was accommodating, informative and obliging. We will definitely make this our "go to" hotel in SJDS and will recommend it to friends and family when they travel there. The only thing to be aware of the noise in this part of town on a Saturday night.
