“Fun, easygoing, unpretentious”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a great time, had lunch over at El Anclote. Fish is delicious,I highly recommend asking for "pescado sarandeado".
Nice spot to just chill, eat and do nothing else while enjoying the view.

“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The grounds and staff that work there are wonderful. The pool is always refreshing but the views from your condo are spectacular. Friendly people always around. Wish I could live there all year long!

“Great place to eat and chill waiting on a perfect wave”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Coral Restaurant has a great Ceviche, and service is super!
There is a great wave in front. It was small while I was there, but I can see, and I also hear it is really nice when it works.

“Great place to stay on vacation.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Not a Hotel. This is a condo project. Property is kept up nicely and there is a wall with gates that make you feel safe while visiting. The property management staff is very helpful and there are some nice people who live there all the time. It is their home and it is fun to interact with so many people from different parts of the world while sitting at the large pool or hot tub. Enjoy!

“El Anclote was a very cool surf town”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

I liked how small it was and how uncrowded the streets were. It looked like they had some excellent condominiums that were 3 stories which probably had an excellent view. It would be a good place for a beginner surfer or paddle boarder to learn.
