They are building a huge addon adjacent. The small pizza resturant has fantastic pizzas for $10 with all types of toppings including Jalapenos. The hotel rimless pool is right onthe beach.

We found this place just from driving by so we didn't stay at the hotel. We had a lovely lunch and afternoon at El Sitio. Amazing views. Great service and food. But we especially appreciated the hospitality of Erica the hostess. She was so attentive and accommodating. The kids enjoyed the surf board rentals. The wifi was faster than what... More

They even have bed swings outside to relax by the pool and it is close to the ocean. While the drinks are great, the food is not very... More

We had a lovely 5 night stay here in April. Venao is not a town, just a collection of hotels along the beach and this is clearly the most upscale. Our room, "Estrella" was very small with just a bed & 2 end tables, no wardrobe or desk to put our luggage on. Bed and pillows were not amazing, but... More

We have just returned home to the UK from an amazing trip to el sitio for my sisters wedding. During our stay all of the staff, avi, Carl, Kiki, Omer, to name a few went above and beyond and provided us all with an amazing stay. We're quite a wild bunch and they handled us all wonderfully. Above all else... More
