“Great hotel in a relaxed town”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Los Almendros is located right next to the police station and they have a private remodeled house with an infinity pool that has a great view to the "Lago Suchitlán". The house is the top suite among the lodging options of the hotel. This house has a living room / kitchen area (although it has no actual kitchen), a nice comfy bedroom, a terrace with view to the lake and the infinity jacuzzi with a patio.

The only downside is that, because the house is located at the end of town, it is surrounded by green areas that, though nice during the day, result in all kinds of bugs flying into the house if you leave doors and windows open. Another downside is that the house is accessible via a narrow street and has no parking area, but the hotel offers house-hotel-house transportation.

Attention to detail gave us a great experience, the hotel delivers the included breakfast in a picnic bag to make your morning more comfortable without having to walk over to the shared dining areas.

And a plus was that they allowed us to bring our dog at no extra cost.

Room Tip: bugs and mosquitoes did not help my sleep experience. Bring repellent and keep doors and windows clo...

We only have dinner over there even thought the rest is a small, the waiter who served us was so polite and smiled, I loved the atmosphere of this beautiful hotel good deco plus this add that they have lake view to the Suchitlan lake.

Room Tip: I heard they have a suite with a pool and lake view,if you go over there ask for that one.

All the hotel personnel is very polite and attentive. We only had breakfast there but it was really good. All the hotel has been beautifully decorated. It also has great views from the Sushitlan lake. I'll will stay there again but I would pick a room inside the hotel, not in el nido.

Beautiful converted colonial house. Stuffed full of antiques and memorabilia - a lifetime collection by the charming owners. The rooms are all unique and fabulous bathrooms (if a little dark), You can while away many hours sat outside your rooms on comfy chairs or in the courtyard or by the pool. A great place to relax. Breakfast is OK - needs work. Bar staff are great fun and very good but it is rather overpriced. The house dog Lorenzo is a real character and clearly thinks he is the boss. Our visit was marred by our tour leader having her bag stolen from behind reception - not necessarily the hotel staff's fault but security may need to be upped, especially as they have secure gated entrances (which could be remotely controlled rather than left open when reception is not manned) and there are no safety deposit boxes in the rooms.

A beautiful old courtyard style building, made into a great hotel. Appreciate the retained charm, as well as the upgrades (the pool is lovely). We stayed in the honeymoon suite annex - el Nido (the nest). It was more than we expected. The front room is stately, the bedroom is large and comfortable. The back garden was what blew our mind. A good size private pool (unheated (not needed in El Salvador), w/ jacuzzi bubbles) with a view of Lago Suchititlan. With binoculars, you can birdwatch from the pool.

Service was excellent, and breakfast and dinner were very nice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the honeymoon suite - a short block from the hotel. The rooms surrounding the courtyar...

A beautiful old home, with great upgrades (the pool). We stayed at the annex, honerymoon suite, El Nido. It was exquisite, pretty front room, comfortable bedroom, and the back garden area just blew our mind. A private pool (unheated, but with jacuzzi bubbles) with a view of Lago Suchititlan.

This is a lovely inn run by two worldly and sophisticated chaps, and their well trained and hospitable staff.
The food is delicious.
We were accommodated in the annex suite, ( called El Nido, "the nest" ) with an excellent view of the lake, and it's own small pool.
We would have appreciated some hooks to hang wet towels or garments, some more hangers, and the garden needs some TLC ( planting some flowers, general tidy-up) and the street in front of the unit is very dirty, littered with debris, but overall it was enjoyable.

Room Tip: The suite overlooking the Lago Suchitlán, I believe #8, would be my first choice.
