If you are looking for a family feel or a true local spot in El Tunco, Mopelia is it. Gilles, the owner, is super cool and one of the most knowledgeable people of El Salvador, travel, music... and life in general. Hotel Mopelia has a huge garden and plenty of space between rooms. The Bar at the entrance to the property has a huge beer selection and tons of games to play. Many of the guests I have met return here Year after Year to hang with Gilles, his family and the other regulars. The rooms are clean but a bit rustic, however you don't hang out in your room in El Salvador. Each bungalow has a patio. There is a pool and plenty of hammocks as well, not to mention the Pacific Ocean is a 20 meter walk. While rainy season is quiet in Tunco, dry season l, December to May, has a

Had dinner here tonight, we all went with pasta related options which were nice! Beer selection is huge too!! Nice relaxing spot with good music. Didn't stay the night but looks like a nice spot. Owners are very friendly - English speaking of your Spanish is weak.

Hotel Mopelia is in a great location just seconds to the beach. There are many places to eat within walking distance including at the hotel itself, but only breakfast and dinner. They pride themselves on having a large variety of beers, although when we were there, their stock was diminished. This is to be expected with so many people staying there and drinking. Good for you! We had a stand alone cabin with AC and private bathroom, but the best part was the hammock on the front porch. We could have used two hammocks since my travel companion and I had to fight for it. Because of the hot weather, the pool was on the warm side, but again, what can you do? We enjoyed our stay there and would do so again if ever back in the city. Cheers!

I stayed at this property for two nights in a private room with bathroom. I ate breakfast and two dinners they were all delicious. The beer selection was excellent. It had private parking and was right in the middle of everything. The grounds are nice with a pool and a workout station. The rooms are very basic but I highly recommend this property.
