This is very nice place to stay. There are a series of cabins spread over a large site very close to the beach. We paid dorm prices for a room for just the two of us (it slept three but it was just US$7.50 each per night), it's a real bargain for the location. The rooms and bathroom are quite basic but clean and everything that you need.

I would certainly recommend it for a budget stay in El Tunco.

Stayed at Mopelia for 3 months, Jan-April. I booked for 2 days before I came, and the owner Gill answered quickly. After the first day I decided to stay for longer. They have different types of rooms, I stayed in one with bathroom with fan and one with fan and shared bathroom, both were good and reasonable priced, and you get discount if you stay longer.

The have the best bar in El Tunco, with a great selection of beer and they even have local craft beer on tap. They also serve food which was really nice, every day the have a different special of the day, and pastas and burgers etc. Ate there almost every day for my whole stay.

The place is really nice situated close to the beach and is sort of a big “garden” with the rooms spread out over the area, so the bar/ restaurant was like the common meeting place for the people who stayed there, so it was really easy to meet people and since I was travelling alone that is nice.

Mopelia has been in El Tunco for a long time, so any info I needed they could provide, and its like a 10 second walk from the beach and they have a guard at nights who checks that everything is ok, which felt really safe. El Tunco is a safe area, but it still felt nice to have a guard.

Super relaxed place and the people running the place are super friendly, nice location and reasonable prices on both rooms and food, so if I go back to El Salvador which I probably will, Ill definitely stay at Mopelia.

This is a little oasis of relaxation, just moments from the beach. Our room was clean and simple - perfect for what we needed and the (very reasonable) cost - and had a little verandah with a hammock, and we split our time between it, the pool, the beach and the bar.

Mopelia is run by a very lovely family and their kids - adorable - do spend time in the common area, which made the experience even better. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here if you're in El Tunco.

Excellent location next to the beach and run by a cool Belgian called Gilles and family. The kind of place where they go the extra mile, lifts into town to buy stuff and booking anything you need locally. You can even borrow his guitar and wile away the afternoon strumming, great value and comes with a pool

Stayed here for one week and have to say the place is one of those places where it's hard to leave from. Rooms are excellent value for the money. Beach is just few seconds away from the hotel and they have a nice pool also where you can jump in for refreshing start for the day. Bar is really good theres a good selection of different types of beers. They serve also really good belgium waffles for breakfast. Owner Gil is really helpful and cool person. Definetly i will come back here before my salvador trip is over..

Room tip: Theres some rooms with shared bathroom for 10usd and others with own bathroom for 20.. Stayed in both and they were all good.. Theres also rooms with AC and all rooms have hammocks outside. They have 1 room also with sea views.
