Recent El Salvador reviews

  • Peaceful escape with heavenly views

    "My boyfriend and I stayed here for five days in April and we loved every minute here. Vilma took very good care of us, and graciously let us stay when we mistakenly arrived a day earlier than our booking. Kenny's breakfasts were huge and flavourful and we ended up sharing one breakfast most mornings. They set up a small kitchen for us to use and we cooked our own dinners a couple of nights. The private beach was clean and safe. We walked alone along the beach every night before bed and had no concerns about our safety. The waves could be forceful but were fun to play in with boogie boards which we rented from a place in El Tunco. There were a few surfers staying at the B&B and they had a lot of good things to say about the surfing in El Tunco which got very busy during the day. The B&B is close to so many towns and we drove into La Libertad a few times -- traffic could be really, really busy getting into La Libertad. A lot of this had to do with the fact that we were visiting El Salvador during the Holy Week and everyone was at the coast for vacation. As some of the other reviews noted, there are a lot of stairs which could be problematic for those not used to it, especially in the heat. There wasn't any wi-fi as Vilma was waiting for a new modem to arrive from San Salvador, but she kindly let me use her computer when we needed to check into our flight. I know she let other guests who had laptops with them, borrow her internet stick which was convenient for them. As Rodolfo mentioned (who we met when we were at the B&B), Beto's restaurant is just at the top of the hill and has stunning views, excellent food and live music. A real treat. Looking forward to when we can come back to visit and stay longer."

  • Vicki & Gary

    "We have been to this lovely beach retreat twice now. Both times were equally as good. We really enjoy the clean beach, the truly warm local people, and the comfy private property. Great swimming pool, beautiful hammock area to read and relax. Very secure! This place is a nice change of pace from the tourist areas that we are used to. Nobody pressuring you, bothering you, just a tranquil little fishing village. We'd love to go back!"

  • Stunning Experience

    "Vistalago is indeed a stunning lakefront property. Our party of 11 Glasswing volunteers had an amazing 5 days! This property is perfect in every way! The sleep accommodations are perfection: the rooms and linens clean and crisp, bathrooms large and bright. The grounds are lush, floral, well maintained. The pool is heated and just the perfect temperature for an evening swim when the temperature dips to the 70s. The great room is open, airy, cool in the heat of the day, and plenty room for group activities. The lake is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been: refreshing crystal clear water, both sunrise and sunset from the dock, and volcanic hot springs (what a surprise!!). We had a boat ride across the lake and the opportunity to jet ski but our favorite part of the lake was watching the sun rise over still waters with a hot coffee in hand. Since our group was so large, we hired Marina and Guadalupe to help us with cooking and cleaning. They were outstanding. They cooked authentic Salvadoran food and even arranged for a meal of fresh-fried lake fish caught that same day by Guadalupe's father! Thanks to Ricardo for making this available. We will definitely be back."

  • Good value, good location, glad to have found this hidden gem.

    "I stayed at this property and found the listing to be accurate and complete. The property was maintained well above my expectations compared to other properties I have been at in the area. The owner/manager Olga has very reliable and honest staff that keep the property amazingly clean and well maintained. The kitchen area had everything anyone could need....and maybe even more, I found it was very well planned for food preparation and cooking. The Jacuzzi and Pool were awesome, good for cooling off in the clean well kept pool, or just resting and relaxing in the Jacuzzi (my fav!!) Olga also was very active and positive in ensuring our vacation here went smoothly, and everything was as promised. I would definitely recommend this location as one of the best available, and would like to return to this little piece of paradise. With a vehicle, everything is very close, without a vehicle it is only a short micro-bus ride to La Libertad. Near the pier in Libertad along the boardwalk are some excellent lunch opportunities...... Visitors need to realize this is a country with some infrastructure issues, and be acceptant of the slow internet providers and power outages due to excessive rain during rainy seasons. This is beyond the control of any property owner here. I have to mention, due to the highly corrosive sea air, there are some electrical items needing repair/service. I understand this as ongoing for any oceanfront property anywhere, and the owner is very attentive to, and pursuing these repairs. She works hard at keeping everything in good working order. Thanks Olga! Good service and work by yourself and your staff. My stay at your property was extremely pleasant!"
