At night the only person in the hotel was security everyone else went home.... More

Our trip to El Salvador was primarily to take surfing lessons in La Libertad and Sabas seemed like a nice place to call home base for a few days. Arriving at Sabas we received a warm friendly welcome and I was impressed by the bright colors and open space of the lobby area. From this area there is open access... More

I had to stay here, the name is a portmanteau of San Blas, but coincidentally the same as my last name. :-) Anyway, it was a good pick for us. The place felt safe and the service, mostly from Luis, was excellent and attentive. The place is clean and comfortable with plenty of room to spread out and stretch. Prices... More

First time visiting this hotel. We really loved this place. The hotel still smell like new, rooms are clean and modern, food and service was great. We totally loved the beachfront restaurant. Special thanks to Paty Nadia for cleaning our room everyday. Will see you again next year.

I want to start by thanking the staff but specifically Nadia(accommodating our room change), Jose Luis(ensuring we had drinks and food), and Oscar(keeping the premises safe). My family stayed at SABAS for about ten days and had a great time. This cozy hotel fits someone who is in search of relaxation; that is, sitting by the pool and eating/drinking all... More

For most of that time we were the only guests there, except on weekends when there were a few local couples as well. We were met at the airport for the pleasant, approximately 40-minute drive to Sabas. Location: Sabas Beach Resort is located... More

The staff was nice and helpful. The hotel itself was very pretty and simple.  But there are three big problems:  1.  If you do not have a car you are trapped at the hotel. Except for the guy next door in a pick up truck who will take you to town for $5 each way (5km away).  2. The internet... More
