About us

Our World

La Santa María Resort and Residences is an upscale, secluded haven that overlooks the ocean and pristine bay of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, offering rental and investment options with world-class services and amenities.

The Story of La Santa Maria

Our destination is born of a love affair for the one-of-a-kind town of San Juan del Sur, an eco-paradise that embodies the pura vida lifestyle of neighboring Costa Rica. This popular tourism destination is equally known for its extraordinary natural beauty as for its warm and friendly, authentic culture (thanks to the many beaches, families, and nature lovers that call it home).

La Santa María Resort and Residences invites you to embark on a journey to rediscover nature, affordable luxury - and one another. Our team is dedicated to providing our guests and residents with excellence, cutting-edge design, first-rate amenities, and quality service - always with fastidious attention to detail. We focus on you - so you can focus on what matters most.

Nestled atop one of the highest peaks of San Juan del Sur, our property is within steps of the ocean and heart of town, a vibrantly colored, artistic village community with a myriad of restaurants, local markets and nature activities.

For some, La Santa Maria is an extraordinary vacation destination - for others, a place called home - but for all, it’s unforgettable!

Core Values 

We have an unwavering commitment to providing superlative, highly personalized hospitality services for our guests and residents, and to cultivating a warm and friendly, yet refined ambiance. We also seek opportunities to improve and support our local community in San Juan del Sur.

Our Mission

To provide modern, upscale accommodations and authentic, memorable experiences inspired by the warm hospitality and natural beauty of San Juan del Sur.

Every Detail Tended To

“We … didn't want to leave. Great location, view, and amenities. The place and the experience are very well thought out: the reception, the decoration, the state of things and the little details like the cookies, the welcome message... Very well done.

Francys Guissell Soza Estrada

A quiet, pleasant, clean place, with good areas to meditate and relax, as well as a spectacular view of the coast of San Juan del Sur, a few minutes from the beach and other restaurants. In addition to that, very good attention from the staff. Something that I really liked is the security that they maintain in the place.

Domenica Martin

My stay at La Santa Maria was phenomenal. From the marvelous view of the bay of San Juan del Sur, to the wonderful amenities to the friendly staff who went above and beyond for me to enjoy my stay. I also felt incredible safe in the gated community that had security 24/7 every time I left the complex. highly recommend and very family friendly! When I arrived they were doing a community movie night with the kids.


La Santa Maria Villa is an amazing house. The view of the bay is breathtaking!
