Sera un placer poderles atender, San Juan del Sur les espera!!
La Terreza was great!!! I've been traveling through Central America for 2+ weeks now and this is by far the best place I've stayed and at a great price. The apartment is quite charming and spacious, as well as very clean. Everything you need is provided--drinking water, towels, kitchenware (the kitchen is great if you like to cook), etc. The entire staff was also incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay with any questions about the surrounding area and going above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable in our room. Great location--walking distance (one block) to the beach as well as the main part of town, but enough off of the Main Street that it is not noisy at night. Very safe as well and a great rooftop to watch the sunset. Highly recommended!!!
Apartment was great. Good location, quiet and nice rooftop terrace. Hosts were friendly and helpful and place was secure. I would recommend.
A great alternative to staying in crowded hostels, especially if you have a traveling group of 5 or 6 friends. The rooftop terrace was a great place to kick off the night, especially during the sunset. Strongly recommend spending a few hours napping in the balcony hammock, especially after a surfing session. We also availed ourselves of a private dinner from Jorge, who prepared excellent beef and shrimp dishes along with a strong mojito. This is an excellent place to stay in San Juan Del Sur and I strongly recommend it.
Firstly, we very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very nice, well located and reasonably priced.
To offer some insight into real expectations I offer these observations, not criticisms..
- the onsite staff do not speak English - we travel a lot and do realize our own limitation in this respect but the listing implied that both English and Spanish were spoken - we all got by but asking for anything was difficult
- the kitchen is not 'fully equipped' - there is not bottle opener, no cork screw, no can opener, limited flatware, no good knife to cut fruit or fish, no tupperwear or other storage containers, nothing is left behind for the next user.
My impression is that the prime use is for the backpacker crowd and not the travelling family. For instance, each bed room has a deadbolt lock. The place is clean, the staff very pleasant and if the owners would be able to invest a small amount in some simple amenities it would have worked much better for us.
We had a great stay at the apartment. We were very excited to see how centrally located the place was - right across the street from the park, a block from the bus drop off and a short three blocks from the beach. It was great for our family. We also really enjoyed having the whole place to ourselves with a two year old and a five month old. It was very spacious and comfortable. The roof was a great added bonus for watching sunsets. We also really loved the balcony for hanging out at night. Olga made us very comfortable upon our arrival. San Juan del Sur was an easy place to visit even with our limited Spanish and two babies. I'd definitely recommend going and staying at La Terraza!
We had a wonderful stay at La Terraza.
It's a fabulous apartment, ideally located for the beach and restaurants.
Olga and the cleaning lady were great, always willing to help.
We made the most out of the sea breeze and kept the windows open, so there was no need for the air con, no problems with mosquitos either.
Would definitely stay again .
We spent 5 days at La Terraza. Did not meet Katie or Jorge. But the receptionist was a lovely, sweet young lady. She was brushing up on her English and it was fun to have her share her new words!! The cleaning girl was also friendly and did a good job.
We stayed on the second floor and enjoyed the balcony. We would stay here again if we return to San Juan Del Sur.
We actually got double booked for this apartment but it all worked out because we got a free upgrade to the third floor, which we enjoyed! We had more than enough room to place all our belongings. We worked with Olga, the receptionist, who was very nice. Kate kept in touch with us through this website which was really helpful and great. We loved our view, and the kitchen came with everything we needed. The location was perfect for us, close to everything that you'd need, but far enough to not be in the party scene. It was great!
LOVED it!!! I will recommend this house to anyone. It is absolutely adorable and in a perfect location. I felt so comfortable the entire time. The staff was always there and it is 100% safe. We even were able to leave our keys whenever we left just to make sure we didn't loose them. Thank you soooo much!
Excellent location with great views. Really enjoyed staying there.
