I didn't stay overnight here, but did stop for a wonderful lunch in the very beautiful open-air restaurant. Service was very good, and the food delicious. Beware of the enormous size of the very good "plato tipico", definitely big enough to share!

Our driver from Honduras dropped us here at around 15.00 on a Tuesday afternoon in Easter week and the restaurant was packed with Salvadoreans enjoying the week long easter break. We stayed 2 nights. The accomodation is in individual cabins in beautiful grounds. It is basic but comfortable but getting hot water is a challenge. The restaurant seats around 150... More

Worth the trip! I ordered a steak filete with Tenquique Sauce. Tenquique is a local mushroom that is wonderful! It has a heart y, slightly smokey flavor. We all ordered different things and everything was delicious and the service was excellent. We especially enjoyed all the antiques and decorations. It was like we walked thru a time warp and went...

We were visiting friends in San Salvador and they took us to this place for lunch (we did not stay in the rooms). The food was excellent. Between the four of us, we had mahi mahi, tostadas, and steaks. The sides were also very good, using fresh local veggies and fruits. We really wanted to save room for pie because... More

We ate lunch here, between our stops along La Ruta de las flores. The food was very good with a great atmosphere. I would recommend ordering the local El Salvadorean dishes, for the price and value, they are great.

We stayed at this beautiful place only for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Log cabin was very clean and one touch I liked was part of the decorations was coffee beans in the candle holder, which also gave a nice smell in the room. It's extremely peaceful, and stunning flowers in the grounds. Breakfast in the morning I chose... More

As others have noted, the food here is exceptionally good, although the service can be a bit slow--but who cares, it is such a pleasant atmosphere! Have a good meal, then stroll in the flower-filled garden area and notice the ancient dug-out canoes they use for flower containers. We did not stay overnight, so can't comment on the hotel accommodations.
