The location is great, with several good pupuserias and shops nearby, and only a $5 taxi ride from most places. The rooms are clean, uncluttered, and have good showers with lots of pressure (and hot water! Perhaps there was an issue with the tank when RockwallTraveler was here). The restaurant is nice, and not overtly expensive. Beer is about $2,... More

I stayed at Alicante for a week last year and am staying here for another week now. It's in a quiet neighborhood very near the UCA (Universidad Centro America). The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds very firm and most important, very nice and helpful people. I arrived at 10:30 p.m. and it was nice to see Javier from... More

Moved to Alicante hotel to be with tour group. No hot water, said Salvadorians do not take hot water showers. Wondered whether they cleaned dishes and cooked with hot water. Poor sanitation everywhere. Very poor wifi, ok link to wifi with 1/2 watt booster but very slow link to internet. Room 23 high ceiling mounted AC, on 16 degrees to... More

We had an unexpected layover in San Salvador, as we were driving to the Panama Canal. We stopped in at the local Land Rover dealer for a service on our trucks and were informed that it may take an extra day or two for the services we wanted to be performed. We then decided to stay close by and this... More

I truly felt at home! Ivan and the other staff were superb, friendly, helpful, bending over backward to please! The dining room could have been better ventilated so the kitchen smells were not so strong. This place had a comfortable and somewhat elegant lobby where friends could relax while chatting with me. This is a great place to stay, near... More

The staff of the hotel is amazing. Everyone is really professional from the reception desk to the security guard... Ivan was a great member of staff too and was very helpful and professional. We had two room (number 11 i think). It was a large room with 2 double beds, the shower was a bit poor. You could see the... More

Staying only one night and traveling with a group may not allow an in depth experience of a hotel,but our first taste of Alicante Hotel was quite pleasant. The room was small by US standards but clean and comfortable. The patio and small pool was a tropical walled garden. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We arrived at this hotel late in the day so I didn't see much of it as we only stayed over night. I traveled with a tour group so don't know the price of the room. The lobby was small, but nice and there was a nice sized dining room where we had an included breakfast. My room had two... More
