Adelante is the kind of a hotel where you can see true personal approach of the owners and staff being mixed with excellent quality. We stayed in Adelante for three nights and that time really stood positively out from the rest of our Central-American travels.
Even though we traveled as a couple, Adelante seemed to be the kind of a place whith satisfying accomodation for anyone - for group of friends or families they also have those bigger ’private cabinas’. And it is not too expensive for backpackers either, I’d really recommend you to take a rest from those usual shabby backpacker hostels and enjoy yourself for a couple of days in Adelante(As the prices for the budget rooms with the supergood breakfasts are of a really good value). Also Adelante is in a really good location to get to, even when using public buses or hitching- just jump off on the road, march up the stairs and already you’ll be in the bar, greeted by friendly staff and the owners Jana and Mart.
When it comes to the personal approach that I mentioned earlier, I was really positively surprised about the small details that you can find all around the place (cool paintings, beautiful handmade crochet curtains, soap wrapped into fresh bamboo leaves etc.). But when sometimes the ’do-it-yourself’ moto results in a bit of a hippy-unprofessional outcome, then I’d say that in Adelante’s case the result is professional, airy and luxorious with a unique touch. And we overall loved how the whole hotel complex was built up: the white houses scattered around on a hillside so you have a gorgeous ocean view from the second floor balconies; the beautiful wild-looking(but actually well-maintained) garden leaving a lot of privacy for each house; nice pool in the middle if you don’t feel like walking a bit to the beaches; and finally the restaurant-bar-relax area to bring it all together.
The bar actually brings together the whole neighbourhood during their regular events and parties. On our first night there they happened to have their „Jungle Fever“ party and it was a great chance to have a fun night without having to travel a long distance to any of the shoddy local nightclubs, meet locals and also other foreigners living in the area (as Adelante’s parties and other events really seem to be the „thing“ around there).
Anyway- to tie together the long description I’ve written. I wholeheartedly recommend Adelante to any kind of traveler to either have a longer holiday or even just stop for couple of nights. It is a place of good value, but even more of good time and relaxation.
