Nothing is very far away in this town. The hotel is lovely, particular the central courtyard where breakfast is served. I really liked the homemade jam, and sorta wished I had inquired about buying some to take home. The a/c and wifi were good enough. Noise for me really was not to much of an issue, and that was on...

The room was clean, the AC worked, but it was tiny. Not a real problem. The issue is the noise in town, starting early, with the busses and trucks coming in and dogs barking. Very loud by like 430 am. This is likely a problem with all of the b/b right in town.

We stayed here for 4 nights, and enjoyed it. The rooms had a/c, which was very welcome at night (and sometimes for a short siesta), and the hotel is in a great location for walking around the town and getting to the beach. It's a budget location, so no frills, but very friendly staff, comfortable lounge areas, and excellent water...

Clean, cost effective, lovely friendly staff and slap bang in the middle of SJDS so you are within arms reach of all amenities. If there is a possible negative it would be that it's so central that sleeping in any later than 8am is impossible but this is hardly the fault of the hotel so i have not deducted from...

Excellent location close to the beach and a few seconds stroll away from the many restaurants and bars. The hotel itself has a pretty outdoor courtyard in the middle and two indoor seating areas to sit and relax. Breakfast was delicious and there were four options to choose from, all included in the room rate. I would recommend trying the...

Great place to stay! There´s a big room that fits 6, air conditioning works great. I left my cell phone charger there on accident, they kept it for me until I came back the following week. Also, great breakfast.

My family and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. The room was super clean and very reasonably priced. They give you a few fresh choices for your included breakfast, that is made fresh and was tasty. La Dolce Vita is only a few hundred meters from the beach and all of the action. We go to...

Out of all our accommodations on our trip to Nicaragua, this had the least value for they price. The whole place needs a good scrub and freshen up.
