We spent (unfortunately) only 1 night at this hotel. We loved it. Nice location at the river, really clean, good WiFi, nice hammocks but above all really nice, friendly, client oriented and happy :) owners/staff. The two ladies running the place are a delight! Wish them all the best and maybe one time come back! A must stay when in...

Wanted to stay at the hotel but they never respond to emails or online reservation form, so we stayed at another hotel on the opposite side of town which we loved. We stopped by once to get lunch and then another time for dinner with our 5 year old, but they seemed indifferent and annoyed by our presence so we...

Stayed here for two nights in torrential rain. Wished it could have been longer. The room was large with spectacular views of the river. Great air con, a huge super king bed and a single. The food in the restaurant was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I highly recommend the chicken soup. For the English visitors they serve great...

Thanks to this strategically located oasis in El Castillo, we had and good trip of three days for getting an impression of the scenic Rio San Juan and the famous Indio Maiz Reserve. We are thankful to both owners who made us feel at home. Value for money - highest score, the hotel is very good for such a remote...

One of the nights in El Castillo my friends and I made the mistake of looking for dinner close to 9:00 PM. We stopped by the restaurant at Hotel Victoria to find out that they and just about all restaurants in town were already closed! We could have been left without food, but they were kind enough here to accommodate...

We changed many hotels in Nicaragua, and this has been one of the best! The room are comfortable, all wooden, and quite big. The bathroom is clean, and the people very nice and careful. There's a lovely terrace at the first floor, where you can relax enjoying the view of the river.

Great location ( at the edge of town - there now are homes beyond where the hotel is located) on the river. Clean + quiet. Food was good but not outstanding. Owner/manager was really helpful. Best to know a little Spanish since no one speaks English.

We were very impressed with our welcome at the dock by the owner of this hotel. She greated us and walked us to the hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean. We were able to have breakfast the following morning at 5:30 am. The owner also got us boots to walk in the nearby rain forest. The dinner was also...

This is a simple hotel but the best in town. The rooms are clean but sparsely furnished. The female owners are friendly and helpful, preparing good, fresh food. It's also the best place to eat in town. Ask fro a river facing room which have shaded verandas outside. A great base for exploring the Río st Juan.
