I was in El Salvador this past December, as I went to visit my family who lives there. I have lived in the US for 20 years now, and every year or two I visit my family in El Salvador.
This is the second time we visit this hotel. This time I went with my wife and kids and my brother and his wife. They told me about this place they like going to so we all visited it for a weekend. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in a cabin for four people, and they stayed in a room separate from our cabin.
We had dinner in the restaurant and after we all headed to my cabin. I wasn´t that hungry at the time, but we were told the restaurant was closed at 7:30, which was early for me. One of the employees came by and turned on the chimeney. This was the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the company of my family.
We were happy to go during this season, as the manager told us it's the coldest time of the year. On our second visit we were more prepared than the first time, since we brought more warm clothes and binoculars. The mountain is more than 8,000 ft above sea level, and the view is wonderful. On Sunday morning the manager took us and another group who was staying in another cabin on a hike. We walked for about a mile and we got to another property of the hotel. The view here was magnificent, and we could see many small towns which are below the mountain. The guide who came with us explained to us which towns were which and about the mountain. I recomend to take binoculars and your camera if you go on this hike.
I recomend this place for anyone who likes nature. I also recomend this place for those who like cold weather, so bring a sweater.
