El Jardin is the perfect place to relax while enjoying amazing views on the Pacific Ocean. Gorgeous view, Good food, Great wines. Our family run hotel is located up a hill, 4 km (2,4 miles) North from busy San Juan del Sur. We offer free shuttles to town twice a day for those who like a little action. You can also spend the day by the pool where you can sip a cocktail enjoying stunning views on Nacascolo bay. Each room has a private bathroom and features charming decor with cheerful colors. Our Deluxe have a private terrace overlooking the ocean which is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Our restaurant is open for lunch and dinners. We have international food ( burgers, salads, pasta, tacos), excellent meat and we are also very proud to offer European inspired options (including Beef Bourguignon, Tapenade, Homemade fish lasagna and many more). We also have a wonderful selection of Italian and French wines. Looking forward to welcome you!

I stayed for 2 nights and it was quiet / peaceful and I could take my vacations in a relaxing environment…! The breakfast menu was amazing and they adjusted my food to my intolerance of certain foods… They’re pet friendly and very respectful…

The views at El Jardin are absolutely incredible! The staff was EXCELLENT and we really enjoyed the food! The rooms were clean and comfy. There was AC, as well as, a ceiling fan, which was a really nice treat! Just a FYI - this hotel is AMAZING, but it's not near the city center for SJDS - so if you are looking for a hotel walking distance to the bars and restaurants this is not it.

We wanted to stay in this hotel for 3 nights while beeing in San Juan del Sur. We left after 1 night since we found lots of bugs and even a scorpion in our room. We had a terrible night as we thought that there may be more scorpions. As you can see on the picture below even the bed sheets were dirty. We told the owner and hope that they will do something about it. The only positive thing is the friendly stuff.

We stayed for a night on our way through to Costa Rica. The staff was friendly and accommodating, giving us a free bottle of water each upon check in. Dinner was delicious and served outdoors. Our room was clean, comfy, and large. But the VIEW was the real winner. Our patio opened up to an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Our fan was a bit loud, but with AC we didn’t need it anyway. Howler monkeys and parrots woke us in the morning!
