Beachfront hotel in the style of a traditional Caribbean plantation house, with an intriguing history and a distinct seaside vibe.

Across the road from the beach, set at one end of San Juan del Sur's sweeping bay, Hotel Victoriano captures the essence of a traditional Caribbean plantation house. The hotel has an intriguing history (once even playing host to Mark Twain) and a distinct seaside vibe.

Cosy, well-equipped guestrooms lead out onto balconies with ocean views, while teak furniture and hibiscus print curtains add to the tropical ambience.

At the front of the hotel is a small pool and terrace where breakfast is served; opposite is a row of restaurants serving some of the best seafood dishes you’re likely to taste in Nicaragua.
