Landmark Inn San Juan del Sur Reviews
Jun 11, 2007
Although this is by far not the most luxurious of the San Juan hotels, it's a good place if you're on a budget. My family and I stayed in a room that was $25 a day and could sleep 5 people. Some of the rooms share a bathroom; some are private. The rooms have air conditioning and a fan and the price includes a basic continental breakfast, a.k.a. toast and marmalade with orange juice and coffee. They have other options for breakfast for a bit extra, and I would recommend getting the Desayuno Tipica if you want good Nicaraguan food. I found all the people working there friendly and nice- I bonded with two of desk girls when the lights went out for 4 hours.
The atmosphere is a bit dorm like, with open areas for people so sit around and chat. The owner usually blasts (surprisingly good) music during the day. We didn't see much of him but he's from West Virginia and apparently a bit of a druggie. But it's Nicaragua. You're lucky to find people that aren't. ;)
One last redeeming quality: It's a couple feet away from the beach, and you have great views of the ocean and sunsets. Overall, a good place to stay.
