OK accommodations if you don't mind being pretty far outside town and from the beach. We were there just for one last night in SJDS, leaving early in the morning, so it got the job done. A/C didn't work and water was out most of the one night we were there. For the price, expected a little better in that regard.

Gribsby Thank you for staying with us, yes by staying only 1 night and at first glance, you may not know exactly where you are located, but the Surf Ranch is the closest resort to the southern surf beaches and only a quick 3km drive to town on our free shuttles. Far enough away from all of the noise, but close enough to get to town in a few minutes and closest to the beach. Let me look into why your a/c unit in your specific room was not working...last night the power went all night, first time all year, and they had to turn the breakers off for the a/c's, this also effects the water at night, this was most likely the cause. Our main generator is in for repair that can power the whole resort, but since we were using the back up, we had to close a lot of power sources so it could still run the fans. It is very unfortunate that Nicaragua is a third world (URL HIDDEN) makes it that much harder but also funner when trying to fix the issues such as many power outages. We have the solution...but the solution was under repairs while the back up generator was in it's place, which caused the no a/c and water for some of the night. Thanks Grisby, safe travels.

Once arrived at the surf ranch there wasn't any record of my reservation. After waiting around for one hour and a half with major attitude from the receptionist not to mention the overwhelming look on her face not knowing what to do. She decided to put me in a room. I wasn't the only one waiting, two other couple had been waiting around. Everything looked clean and the ideal activity ranch was cute. Rooms had lots of crawly friends. Food was tasty and glad breakfast was included with my stay:)

Ivania Thank you for choosing the Surf Ranch Hotel & Resort as your place to stay in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. It looks like you arrived on the same day you made the reservation, but regardless, the reservation is updated in the system instantly. However the receptionist you dealt with was very new, and has not been trained on what to do in this situation. All she needed to do was refresh the page. I am sorry you had to have this experience upon check in, as we spend a lot of resources training the front staff and making the check in process flawless. This issue has since been fixed, and we hope to see you back again soon. Thank you.

Although the front desk representative had no record of our reservation when I showed them my email confirmation we were immediately accommodated even though it was prior to the check-in time. The resort is as described and we had an amazing time taking advantage of the skate park and many of the other resort amenities. The shuttle service was great taking us in and out of town. There was a bug problem in our room which is partly to be expected in a third world country but fortunately it was rectified at some point throughout our stay. In addition it would be nice if the bar and restaurant were open past 10pm.

Herschel Thank you for staying with us. Yes, there are many insects here in Nicaragua. They do tend to get in if you have the doors open, etc... However our deluxe units tend to have less insects getting in as the sliding screen doors are more sealed. Our bar and restaurant are open until 11pm. I hope to see you back again soon. Thanks Herschel.
