“Trip of the Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Visited El Salvador with a group of 30 people and was I ever impressed with our accommodations at Hotel Terraza! The rooms were wonderful and the staff was unbelievably attentive and present. Everyone smiled and catered to our every need. The food was terrific too. We had the breakfast every morning in the patio/pool area and it was beautifully presented. I met a couple, Brian & Candy, from Pasadena, in the lounge and they shared the same rave reviews. I would go back to Hotel Terraza in a heartbeat.

I recently visited El Salvador to participate in a music festival and was accommodated at Hotel Terreza. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The breakfast is fantastic. It is served in a patio restaurant overlooking the pool and it is a beautiful setting.

The rooms are average and housekeeping does a fine job with them. The hotel does have air conditioning, but it’s a little noisy when it’s running.

This hotel shows true hospitality to its guests. We received a really warm welcoming and first-class service during our entire stay. The hotel is very well located in a "close to everything" area. The rooms are comfortable with good internet and the meeting rooms were elegant, with good lighting and AV equipment. One thing they can really brag about is the food; it is amazing!
Our business meetings were executed to perfection thanks to the staff and hotel facilities.

Seven years ago I recommended this hotel to my wife (based upon TripAdvisor reviews) and she has been going there several times a year ever since. Here is her review.

Hotel Teraza feels like a "home away from home" for me. the staff always welcomes me warmly. For a modestly priced hotel, it is a great bargain. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable (good TV, bathroom, A/C).The location is good. Breakfasts are spectacular--beautiful terace, wonderful variety of food, including tropical fruit, regional specialites, and delicious traditional choices--also very good coffee. The best part of the hotel is the service, which is friendly, gracious and always helpful.
All in all, wonderfu; I look forward to the stay there every trip!

Room Tip: Trade off. Rooms over the pool have nice view; but parties for quinceanera (girl who turns 15) somet...

El Salvador and the Hotel Terraza was the first leg of our groups 8 day trip that included vacation and futbol matches in both San Salvador and Costa Rica! We couldn't have had a better start of our trip then to begin at the Hotel Terraza. We were a large group and check-in was simple and quick! The staff was prepared for our large group and we got into our rooms very quickly. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast every morning and were served by a great staff who made us feel very welcome and taken care of every day! The food was fabulous! We also enjoyed the swimming pool and the spa. Hotel Terraza has a very warm atmosphere, a wonderful staff and is an gem in San Salvador. We met the owners of the hotel and they are lovely people who made us feel at home in there hotel. I have to say that staying at Hotel Terraza was the best hotel experience of the whole trip. We are looking forward to coming back El Salvador in the future and will definitely stay at Hotel Terraza.

Thank you so much for your comments! It was a very enjoyable experience for us to host your group. We are very happy to know that your expectations were met, especially when traveling to a different country. Our pool and gym (not spa!) are exclusively for our guests, which we believe leads to a more tranquil experience.
We look forward to having you stay with us again in the near future!

Just come back from a vacation in El Salvador and chose this hotel based on previous reviews on here, and was not disappointed.. A good sized hotel in a good location. The staff are courteous and aim to please and always there with a smile for you..The housekeeping was excellent, fresh towels daily, and clean linen. The cleanliness was first class..The rooms spacious and well furnished. one small gripe, and not the fault of the hotel, is that the rooms overlooking the main road can be a little noisy , mainly due to the crazy Salvadorian drivers!, but the double glazing keeps this down as much as possible..Request a room overlooking the pool if possible.The food is good and reasonably priced and the airport shuffle at $16 is good value.. I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Salvador

Room Tip: Request a pool view room if possible as less road noise
