My boyfriend and I stayed here back in March 2012. I'm reviewing now as I've finally got round to going through my travel diary! We booked by email a day before arriving by emailing from the website. A double room with fan was $15. the Belgian owner, Giles, and his family were very friendly and welcoming. There's an excellent shaded dining area which usually has wi-fi but the whole town of El Tunco had no internet during our stay. Giles was kind enough to update us on the Japan tsunami from his iphone! The food isn't the cheapest in El Tunco but it's very good with a varied menu and excellent pizzas. Worth the money to spoil yourself if you're on a budget. Theres also an awesome little tower/hammock hang out spot to enjoy the sunset from. We stayed 3 nights then moved

Belgian owned Mopelia is new to tripadvisor although it was added to El Tunco some years ago. They have bungalows with shared and private bathrooms, all very close to the beach. You do not have to walk across town (which is actually one street) to get there, just take Mopelia's rear exit which is only 50 m from the water. You will have to walk for another 100 m on the beach to get to the sandy part. When you're into surfing you can enter the water right here. The bungalows are clean and with fan and all have private hammocks right in front of them. There is a small (about 7 m long) but well mantained pool in the big courtyard. You can swim all day and night if you like. Very refreshing! They have a nice bar plus restaurant, although it's a bit more expensive here than out on
