I stayed here with a friend last week for 5 nights while I was in El Salvador visiting my sponsor child. Being young 23 year old girls we were a bit worried about the country, the people and the stay. We worried for nothing! It's a great location and is very safe to walk and explore and the staff are always there to guide you. They are extremely friendly and caring and were willing to help with everything and anything at any time. Doris was such a sweetheart and took care of us like a mother, although she didn't speak or understand any English, through smiles, hugs, 'charades' and google translate we always managed to communicate well. Gretchen, who we saw every morning was also fantastic! She speaks both English and Spanish, and although she's not at the hotel all the time she always made herself available to us had we come across any problems - which we didn't. I would definitely recommend the tours that are listed on the hotel website headed by Gretchen (who is so cool to hang out with) the tours are well worth the money and not to mention El Salvador is truly a beautiful place to see.
The photos don't do this hotel justice, it's a small hotel but is lovely and has a homely feel to it. We sat at the sofa/lobby area a few nights watching movies as we ate our late night take away (which is delivered to the hotel very easily). The garden/pool area is heavenly and is a beautiful setting to eat those yummy pancakes that are served at breakfast. The wifi connection is strong and available all around the hotel, so you never have to wait tediously for that email to load.
There is so much I can say about this hotel and every praise would probably still fall short! I loved this hotel but more so I loved the friendly, homely service it provided. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
