I stayed at the Secret Cove for almost 1 week with a friend. The location is great, a 5 min walk from the beach, very close to the market, surf shops, and many restaurants. There is a shared bathroom between two rooms, but no one rented out the other room so we had the place to ourselves which was great. A/C is $7 extra per night, however we found it wasn't needed. There is a huge fan in the room, and I took a cold shower before bed each night. Dora made all the breakfasts, and does an amazing job. The banana pancakes were my favourite. There is a fridge for the guests, so we ended up buying lots of fruit from the market. The internet connection was very good, no complaints. I took advantage of some of the extra services, and got an amazing 1 hour body massage on the roof for only $25. They can also help with booking surf lessons at Remanso beach, and offer paddle board rentals for $10 an hour or $20 for the day. They also help with booking transportation to the airport. My friend and I had a great time in San Juan del Sur. I do recommend bringing bug spray, there are lots of mosquitoes!

Great little spot just 5-10 minutes from the beach. Allie was a wonderful host, always responded promptly to messages and made delicious breakfasts each day. Was also nice enough to fix me some breakfast before my 6am bus on my last day (thanks!). Had noone in the room next to me so can't speak to shared bathroom noise. All in all a great stay, and an optimal spot to explore SJDS from.
