I loved staying here!! It is fairly centrally located hotel about 20 minutes from the airport in San Salvador with a restaurant on site. The food i delicious and the views amazing! Walking distance to two awesome surf breaks La Paz and Punta Roca are right in front to the hotel! Also a short walk to town and a pier that are fun to walk around. The place is super clean and the service amazing! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and I look forward to staying there again.
No crowds, amazing food, super friendly locals, and the best surf guides ever! The view are amazing from the Hotel. My room was facing the surfing spot so all I had to do was open the door to see if the waves were pumping. The offer a bunch of surfing boards for rent and also trips to several spots around the area.
Just back from a fantastic week at AST Punta Flores and Punta Roca. Beautiful location, amazing people and great surf. Any anxiety I had about travelling to El Salvador was erased the moment Jorge picked me up from the airport. I felt safe and well looked after by Jorge and his team the entire time. The Las Flores location was my favorite. It is more rustic than Punta Roca, but the view is spectacular – beautiful swaying palm trees, gorgeous sunrises. Clean, basic rooms and comfy beds. It’s a great place to switch off from the world. The Punta Roca hotel is busier and feels more modern – great rooms, located right on the beach, delicious fresh food, and friendly staff. I would strongly recommend going to both locations. I’m a beginner surfer and didn’t surf that much, but the times I did go out the waves were fun, and the surf instructors were helpful. The trip to the waterfalls was also fantastic– you pass through a town called Juayua, which is really lovely, and full of color. Whether you are looking to surf, explore, make friends, nap in a hammock, or drink beer watching the sunset AST has got you covered. I would go back in a heartbeat!…
My girlfriends and I stayed with AST in both La Libertad and Las Flores. The experience was excellent. The staff was very accomodating and the surf guides were tons of fun and very helpful. The rooms were comfy with lots of space and air conditioning. The views from the rooms were incredible and in both locations you can see the wave from your door. The people in El Salvadore were generous and kind and we felt safe travelling throughout the country. I would come back for sure!
What can I say? I have now visited AST El Salvador twice and could not have enjoyed myself more on both occasions. The location of ASTs two hotels could not be more perfect- wake up and check the waves immediately as they are RIGHT THERE! You are not limited by transport to the waves... and can literally surf all day, as often and for as long as you want (or can!). And wave quality is world class! The hotels are comfortable, and clean, and the service is fabulous. Don’t get me started on the food!!! It’s almost TOO good and in such quantity that you have to surf many hours to justify it! El Salvador is a tranquil, more peaceful alternative to CR... fewer crowds in the water and with AST you enjoy the privilege of highly personalized attention. Could not recommend it more!!!
