We go to La veranera every time we can. Living in Nicaragua for four years, it is our favourite place to stay at the beach. Closer to the sea, you'd have wet feet on high tide. The new manager is nice, reliable. We'll be back! :-D

La Veranera is my favorite place to stay in Nicaragua. It is clean, beautiful, and the staff is very friendly. It is the perfect place for a relaxing and peaceful weekend. I highly recommend others to stay at La Veranera.

It starts with a long......taxi ride from San Juan del sur on an OK road but most taxis are not 4 wheel and must go very, very slow. Not so great after a lengthy trip from Managua. I was once in the hospitality business and so I understand how challenging it can be and so I offer these comments with...

This is a guest house where you have separate bedrooms and an ensuite bathroom. All guests usually eat together and the Manager or his helper do the cooking. You practically have a large beach to yourself. Pre-arrange any fishing or other trips in advance. Lots of parking if you have your own vehicle. 15 km from Costa Rican border.

La Veranera definitely goes into the books as one of my favorite travel lodgings. I stayed here while traveling with a group of 3 girlfriends on vacation. Slightly outside of San Juan de Sur, La Veranera is a quiet charming escape of a home turned into bed & breakfast. The back patio and pool area open out onto the beach...

We stayed for a few nights in the ocean front room. It is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Nick is a great host and cooks a delicious fish. The waves are fun to boogie board(included). Best beach we've seen in Nicaragua (white sand, fun waves). You can hike to the next beaches.

My husband and I stayed at La Veranera this past December, ending a two week trip in Nicaragua. We were so glad that we stayed here - the house is truly lovely, with a beautiful veranda/terrace area surrounding the pool, and a view that's right onto the best beach in Nicaragua. Nick who manages the property, was great, and answered...

We cannot say enough to express how wonderful our stay at La Veranera was. Jim, Nick and Ina were wonderful hosts who consistently went out of their way to ensure we were having a pleasant stay. This included everything from checking in on how our meals were, making sure we had coffee set up before we left at 4 AM...

This hotel or called it a 'Guesthouse' isn't worthwhile a good review. After a long ride on a bumpy road we heard we were not welcome because the room was overbooked. Even we paid $ 90 in advance already in July and the room was confirmed. Why? We don't know. We don' t feel this guesthouse is treating their guests...

Dear Merian, Once again we want to apologize for overseeing your reservation. The room was overbooked due to an honest mistake. It is a shame that you did not take us up on our offer for an alternative room, as this would have given us the opportunity to prove that we care very much about our guests and do everything...
