Very good hotel. I love how Raiza waited for us until late around midnight. She was very helpful, kind with hotel directions and I loved our room amazing view and the hotel, the breakfast was so yummy. The only thing was it’s spring the pool needed to be more clean we found several flowers folding and bees but over all hotel was excellent, clean and with an gorgeous view to the ocean. We can wait to visit again. I highly recommend this hotel El Jardin.! Thank you Ivy U. Possekel

Amazing views, great food, clean rooms, and very helpful staff! Even though it is a little out of town, taking a taxi is very easy (their driver Alex is awesome) and worth it. Thank you El Jardin for such a great experience!

2/10 Poor

Had many issues with Davide.. manager. He was not truthful about meal and bar costs... not one staff person showed or opened restaurant till after 7:30 am. Was told they would do our laundry for a fee and would be ready next morning. NOT ready by 8:30( when we were leaving) and told the dryer wasn’t working.. left with soaking wet clothes. Sat on bench on deck which collapsed under me...luckily not hurt. All said ...Davide should not be managing this hotel.

It was a long way from town. The service was great, however, the prices at the bar and restaurant were astronomical. We paid $8 for shots of well vodkas. Unbelieveable!!!

El Jardin Hotel & Restaurant - Best place ever
We visited El Jardin in February 2018, and it was a great vacation. The hotel staff was exceptional, and they went out of there way to make our stay fantastic. Everything on the menu is exceptional, and we nearly tried everything. It's about 10 minutes from San Juan Del Sur, and a $5.00 cab ride. We hope to be back soon, and definitely are returning to El Jardin.
