We stayed for four nights over Christmas and were so happy that we chose Las Mananitas. The casita was fabulous with all the comforts of home and filled with wonderful details and decorations. We had planned on only having a couple meals cooked by Elisabeth but after our first amazing dinner of Mahi Mahi served on our private jungle balcony we decided to eat all our dinners there. The food is gourmet and should not be missed! There are only two casitas and each is very private with a lovely refreshing pool between them. Our casita had a great balcony complete with comfy chairs and hammocks where we could enjoy the sunsets which sometimes last for hours. You really feel like you're in your own private paradise.It's only a 30 minute walk to gorgeous beaches which were uncrowded in spite of it being the high season. Elisabeth and Alain are wonderful hosts who make you feel at home and part of the family. If you visit San Juan Del Sur, this is the place to stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched atop a country hill, near the village of San Juan del Sur, Las Mananitas must surely be the tiniest resort in all of Nicaragua! Two cozy cottages, a nicely designed and relaxing pool, and the owners’ house. Set alongside a dead-end country road that opens up on two magnificent beaches, Las Mananitas offers unequalled tranquility. Nestled among trees, each cabin is equipped with a deck that provides a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the valley. ... more less
