All the positive aspects of the property were neglected by the owner. He was very rude from the time I got there. I asked for something to drink and he reluctantly gave me a drink not even looking at me. He charged me 28 cordobas upfront and then I had the account remove the 80 cordobas he charged me for the drink as well. He told the other guests not to talk to me and said that I was sick and I smelled. I confronted the desk clerk about these problems after a second issue in the restaurant where I was served a bad hamburger and his service was horrible again. I am glad the desk clerk was there to resolve the issue, but it still left a bad impression. I want the other employees to keep their jobs but that owner does not need to be in the hospitality business. He needs to sit in the office and count the money and let his employees shine.

We chose Porta Do Sol as it was a little bit out of the main touristy part and close to other beaches we wanted to visit like Hermosa and Remanso. The woman who runs the place is amazing - so friendly, professional and goes out of her way to help, with fantastic english to boot. We were upgraded for no charge and were helped with any questions we had. The pool area is great and the rooms do the trick. Though it is a wee way out of town, there is a free shuttle that takes you in and out of San Juan Del Sur whenever you want. The breakfast that was included was also nice. Porta Do Sol is just starting out so has a few little things to get ironed out, but it is chill. Plus, the price you get for a private room rivals prices for dorms in the town. If you are looking for a party vibe or to meet people, it might be a bit early for this place as we were the only ones there. But if it's relaxation and good service you're after, this will do it, I wish these guys all the best :)

Thus hostel has a pool area, bar, restaurant, and sir conditioned dorms. Close to southern beaches like Hermosa. There is a shuttle service to take you into town less than five minutes away. It's free. Also breakfast is included and free. Clean showers and good food. A very tranquil location. If you need a private room they have them.

I was pleased to find this place close to town and great beaches. San Jan Del Sur is a fun place to visit, but at the end of the day it is great to be able to get away from it all. Very friendly staff, good food and not over priced.
