Property Description

Casa Maya is the only hotel at Remanso Beach. Remanso Beach is the premier surf break for beginner and intermediate surfers in the San Juan Del Sur area.

San Juan doesn't have a surf break of it's own in town, so the San Juan surf schools truck their students to Remanso every day. Why not just stay here and surf before the crowds arrive? Then take a relaxed late afternoon surf after they leave?

Casa Maya is a bright new eco surf lodge, steps away from one of the most consistent waves in Central America with 12 clean bright new private rooms, a small dorm, a well fitted clean shared kitchen, and 200 Mbps super fast Wifi.

Nicaragua enjoys off shore winds 300 days a year, giving us some of the most consistent warm water surfing in the world. Stroll 2 mins to the beach and enjoy uncrowded perfect waves at anytime. No daily shuttle rides required. Be the first in the line-up and last to leave!

Enjoy beachfront bars and restaurant with a vibrant friendly social scene, chill on your balcony with a drink and enjoy the multicolored birds, sunsets and sometime monkeys in the tree canopy. Enjoy free filtered water and prepare delicious drinks and meals in our shared kitchen with fresh local fruits, vegetables and groceries ordered from the best quality supplier in San Juan with free delivery!

Awake to Yoga on the Skydeck with cool breezes and luscious forest and ocean views. Take a beautiful 30 minute coastal hike to Tamarindo Beach for zero line-up soul surfing in the morning, hike 30 mins on to beautiful Hermosa beach, have lunch at their restaurant, surf Hermosa, then hike back through gorgeous sunsets to Casa Maya for drinks and dinner.

Most of our guests extend their stay, and many return. It's the perfect place to experience true peace, recharge and resume your travels refreshed!

I regret to say that my experience at Casa Maya was highly disappointing. While the staff was courteous, the quality did not match the exorbitant price. The bed felt like a slab of concrete, and the toilet was far from inviting. To add insult to injury, a power shortage left us in the dark, with the generator only powering a single building, leaving us questioning the value of our $65+ expenditure. Overall, Casa Maya left a lot to be desired, and I would caution anyone considering a stay there.

This experience was exactly what I payed for/expected. James and Faith were VERY accommodating to what I needed for my stay and as well as additional help with transportation information. They were both very friendly and gave us as much information as they could regarding our stay. The proximity to the beach made everything worth it, the bars and restaurants down there were AMAZING. I usually stay at Playa El Coco but I will definitely be coming back to playa Remanso.

Quite eco lodge with great kitchen facilities. Beautiful beaches within walking distance. We saw dolphins on our last sunset surf. The bars have great food and excellent prices especially sloudys. Faith and James are very helpful and kind. You’ve got everything you need (just remember to bring your own groceries if you intend on cooking as shops are far). Beautiful sky deck with comfortable hammocks to relax in. Great WiFi too! Great wildlife, birds, monkeys, wild horses and more!
