I have to say that this hostel is a great option to disconnect yourself from routine ! the prices are very affordable and it is in front of the beach ! you can take a walk or jog by the sea , you can have also delicious and fresh sea food made by the owners, Salvador and Carolina . These people love and take care of their own place ,they are very people oriented and strive to offer the best service . They took us to this hidden and unspoiled beach called El trebolito . Although. the rooms need some improvement this does not let you have your peace being interrupted . There is a little town in 10 min from the hostel where you can find good Nicaraguan food , the people are very friendly as well , jsut make sure to go before 9 pm in order to get to the smal restaurants in the area .

been there bfore 3 years ago to b precise and went back is that place that never changes still an empty lonely CLEAN beach and manta raya is a lovely little hotel facing the ocean so quiet and relax Salvador and Caroline had manage to keep it simple confy affordable far so f far from complicated san juan del sur hope they keep it as low key as now. as I walk along the beach I encounter a entire squad of small playful stingrays and all over the water as I swim in the refreshing water hum they r not dangerous . ******this type of hotel/beach is not for a party goers drinkers or people looking 4 action is mostly for those looking 4 peace clean beaches and relax away from everything

We really liked it in El Ostional. It is a very quiet village, almost no tourists. Completely different than San Juan, if I must believe the stories. Manta Raya is at the beach, and it is almost the only house at the beach, because the village itself is not centered at the beach. Manta Raya has a few simple good rooms (30 dollars for a double), and the terrace where you can eat and sit is really lovely. We watched two baseball games on a big screen there. You can surf, or use the kayaks for the sea. Also, we saw a big turtle laying its eggs there one afternoon. You can walk around in the mangroves, where we saw monkeys, a lot of birds and a small spider. Salvador and his wife are lovely people. The town doesn't even have a clear restaurant - you can eat at Comedor Blanca, but you have to look for the small sign and the two plastic tables in front. Or you can eat at Manta Raya. If you're looking for a really nice quiet NIcaraguan tovillage with a beach, this is it.

This guesthouse located right on the beach of the unspoiled sleepy village El Ostional just breathes authenticity. The place is small and personal with just a handful of (clean and tidy) rooms and the owners are super nice hospitable people living right next to the cabinas who will help you with everything you might need during your stay. For example they supplied me with free snorkling gear. Ask for a local to guide you around on or above the water and you will have the time of your life. In order to ensure a reservation you will have to call them at: +505 8353 7091 This is the perfect place for travelers who urgently need a break from the annoying and drunk type of backpackers found all over the place in San Juan del Sur.

The rooms are simple but comfortable and the service from the owners Salvador and Carolina is wonderful! Great breakfasts and dinners and just a few feet from the beach. This family knows the area really well and gives great advice on places to visit and led us on several fun day trips.
