My husband and I stayed at Kayu for 4 nights and picked it based on reviews and location. The location couldn't have been better. Across the road from Sunzal and an easy check of the surf whenever you want. We had an upstairs room with great views. The rooms are very spacious. The only issue we had was that there...

We didn´t stay here, but we rented boards for the week from Marco, who was really friendly and helpful. We were able to switch out boards all week and he was more concerned about my boyfriend's well-being when he banged up a board than he was about the board himself. Good people, for sure. The restaurant was disappointing, though. The...

Rooms were great and large. We were on the second floor so we had a good view but not very accessible if you have trouble going up and down stairs. Also, you must cross the street to get to the beach, but that didn't bother us. We did not surf but we enjoyed the beach and walked on the beach...

In our two years living in Guatemala, we visited El Salvador four times for surf and sun. We stayed in Tunco the first time and were a bit turned off by the noise and filth. We stopped at Kayu for lunch and upon seeing the facilities and proximity to Sunzal surf point we were convinced this was THE only place...

We started out our trip to El Tunco from leaving San Salvador and didn't know exactly what hotel we were going to stay in. We had looked at several different hotels online but decided to drive down to El Tunco and find a place to stay once we arrived. We drove through El Tunco and saw Kayu right after El...

We ate here twice on our trip to El Tunco. Great location, just prefect views of Sunzal break. Main reason we chose to eat there was because they took credit cards which was a plus. I had the Yogurt and Fruit both times, it was great. I also got to try the Banana Pancakes, which were fluffly and moist. The...

My husband and I, along with two friends, stayed for one week at the Kayu during our first visit to El Salvador in March 2012. Our timing was a little interesting and may have had an impact on our experience. The hotel was getting ready to close, as we were told, for a two-week period. The rumor mill in the...
