I can't imagine why anyone would bother to choose any other hotel in San Salvador. Casa ILB is simply the best, certainly one of the finest hotel experiences I've ever had in any country. My 14-year-old son and I stayed here for one night on our way home after staying at the Decameron (not a place I would ever choose or go to again but we were there for a sporting event), and I am so thankful that we had a chance to experience it. As a single, very American-looking woman traveling with a child, I had concerns, but several pre-visit email exchanges with Rodolfo helped to ease my fears and assure me that what we had planned could be done with confidence in our safety. Our stay was over a Sunday, so we did not get the opportunity to try the restaurant, but Rodolfo greeted us and helped us finalize our plans for the day and restaurant arrangements for the night at La Pampa overlooking the city and the volcano. We were there for Rodolfo's final day at Casa ILB. That is a devastating loss for the hotel, because he was definitely a part of making the entire experience superior, but he promises that the new manager, Samaria, will continue the excellence in service. Certainly, all the staff we met were wonderful. Our taxi had to pick us up at 5a on Monday, so the housekeeper brought us fresh fruit and yogurt to store in our mini-bar so we had something to eat before we left, and the guard was up and waiting to open the gates and help us get our luggage to the car. Those kinds of personal details by all the staff, in addition to things like the apples, cookies and coffee always waiting on the terrace, make Casa ILB a place to which I will always want to return. It is a mistake to miss it. (That said, this is not a place for running and screaming children.)
