“A wonderful place to stay - a bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2008

We were concerned after reading the previous reviews, but we were extremely pleasantly surprised! The price for the room included all taxes and ALL FOOD AND DRINKS (Iincluding alcohol before 10PM) - except water (which we found a bit odd). The staff was great - very accommodating - even with our poor Spanish. The beach was huge and the sand very nice and the pools were warm and wonderful. The salt water showers were not a problem - hardly noticed. In all we had a great stay.

Would you believe six nights at the beach at the Comfort Inn Bahia Dorada almost by yourself? We checked in on a Saturday and the hotel was packed. There was a wedding in the patio area and lots of San Salvadorans were staying for the weekend. The hotel has an all-inclusive package for $129 per room (double occupancy) per night. By Sunday afternoon we were practically alone. We were travelling with friends (total 2 retired couples) and spent most of the week alone at the hotel with two pools, wait staff for food and beverages, front office staff, and security. The weekend food was served buffet style, but the rest of the week we ordered what we wanted (grilled fish, chicken, shrimp for dinners, full breakfasts, full lunches). Along with the pools, we were right on the beach. Across the road there was access to the estuary and mangroves. We took an estuary tour with Jose Misael Molina that included some fishing. Miseal was recommended by the hotel staff and was very informative (some Spanish is helpful). On the downside, the water is only warm and is salt water instead of fresh water. Considering our other experiences in Central America, this was still OK but could be improved. Our experience was different that other reviews for this hotel. Either the hotel has improved or our expectations were less than the other reviewers. We had checked out of the Club Joya del Pacifico about a half-mile away after one night (see review) before checking into the Comfort Inn.

  • Liked — Quiet beach, lots of room
  • Disliked — Salt water shower (still better than some hotels we stayed at during this trip)

We stayed at this hotel two nights July 31st and August 1st. We are a family of 5, two adults, two teenagers and one infant.
The location of the hotel is right at the beach with beautiful ocean views from the balcony. The beds were extremely comfortable.
The biggest problem we had in this hotel was the fact that the water for the shower and sink was SALT WATER! Having gone swimming in the ocean, expecting a nice shower to wash off all the salt, we were in for a big surprise. We were tempted to use the complimentary bottles of filtered water to give our 10 month old a bath.... The saltwater shower made us cut our hotel stay short one day, we decided that fresh water showers were a neccessity for a beach front hotel!
Some minor annoyances: I saw some dirty dishes that another guest had put outside their door when we first got to our room. I still saw the same dishes the next day and the day we checked out. Also, the carpet in our room was not vacuumed in the two days we were there as we tracked in some sand and the sand remained in the same spot for the duration of our stay.
Other than that, the hotel is newly built and quite nice, in an up and coming area with lots of new beachfront construction.
