If you're looking for a comfortable spot with a relaxed vibe look no further. Quieter spot just one minute from the beach, hammocks outside every room and a nice swimming pool made this a perfect place to hang out and relax while in El Tunco. Also the restaurant bar has great Belgian food and a huge beer selection, which is never a bad thing. Affordable private rooms and a really nice garden area made my week stay here highly enjoyable.
Couldn't be a better spot to relax, big garden with hammocks and pool and beach is only a really short walk. Restaurant does quality food at a reasonable price. Cheapest private rooms we found in central at $20 for two are a bargain!
Mopelia is awesome. It's super chill and spacious - instead of cashing in and building a bunch more units, the owner has kept the landscaped lot large, and the building footprint small. This is a real treat and a rarity in Tunco. I spent many happy hours swinging in the hammock outside my room listening to the waves and birds. I also love that there's discounts for longer stays and if you're a solo traveller - exactly how it should be. The restaurant has tasty food and a great beer selection too - what else can I say? I'll be back for sure. A really great place.
Hotel Mopelia is a fabulous spot -- the ideal place to stay in El Tunco. There are room choices to suit all budgets, plenty of hammocks, a swimming pool, a restaurant and bar with craft beer on tap! The beach is a 10-second walk, and all the restaurants and shops are a short stroll away. To top it all off, the owners are helpful, multi-lingual and genuinely interested in ensuring you have a great time. There`s a community of long-term surfers here, but there`s no need to be a surfer to enjoy this place. I was in El Salvador on business, and escaped for a few days to Mopelia. It may be sacrilege to suggest, but this is a great place to catch up on work without distractions, and still get in some beach and pool time. All in all, fabulous! A perfect 10
This review is for the restaurant/bar. This is THE place in El Tunco for the best beer selection. Gill has been in El Sal for a good long time- simple food menu with pasta dishes, sandwiches and burgers but they are done right! Fresh baked buns, Belgian style fries and perfectly cooked pasta dishes. Super club meets on occasions to have dishes like pork chops, peppercorn steak or meatballs. Just stop by to put your name down. You can also order whole lasagna if you have a large group to feed. It is behind the pizza parlor on the main road.
