Stayed at Mopelia for 3 months, Jan-April. I booked for 2 days before I came, and the owner Gill answered quickly. After the first day I decided to stay for longer. They have different types of rooms, I stayed in one with bathroom with fan and one with fan and shared bathroom, both were good and reasonable priced, and you get discount if you stay longer.
The have the best bar in El Tunco, with a great selection of beer and they even have local craft beer on tap. They also serve food which was really nice, every day the have a different special of the day, and pastas and burgers etc. Ate there almost every day for my whole stay.
The place is really nice situated close to the beach and is sort of a big “garden” with the rooms spread out over the area, so the bar/ restaurant was like the common meeting place for the people who stayed there, so it was really easy to meet people and since I was travelling alone that is nice.
Mopelia has been in El Tunco for a long time, so any info I needed they could provide, and its like a 10 second walk from the beach and they have a guard at nights who checks that everything is ok, which felt really safe. El Tunco is a safe area, but it still felt nice to have a guard.
Super relaxed place and the people running the place are super friendly, nice location and reasonable prices on both rooms and food, so if I go back to El Salvador which I probably will, Ill definitely stay at Mopelia.
