Recent El Salvador reviews

  • It will change your life!

    "I had spent quite a while researching places to stay in El Salvador after getting a good review from a friend. After an exhausting search, I had noticed this BB at Dulce Villa and reached out to book a getaway for myself and my fiance. Upon inquiry, I was surprised at how fast the response from D'Arcy took! Right away she made the planning and booking with comfort and ease. Upon arrival, we were greeted by both Shawn and D'Arcy at the airport and knew right away that we were going to be in good hands. They then took us back to the location and when we walked through the front doors, were immediately amazed and taken back by the breathtaking views and beauty of the property. We felt right at home in paradise as we quickly put on the bathing suits and got into the amazing infinity pool that looks over the ocean with the waves crashing below. It's a sight that really is hard to put into words! D'Arcy and Shawn couldn't have been better hosts as they were always at your beckoning call with whatever was in need. Whether it be a refreshing cold beverage of any sort or a light snack in between the delicious meals compliments of the amazing chef Shawn. We had first envisioned ourselves going out to all the many excursions that they offer as a way to see and experience the country, however, we found that we already had what we needed and more right where we were. We had the luxury of having massages on a lower patio that is just feet above the ocean perched on a cliff with the splashing of the waves just below you. The private/guarded community offers many sights but also beholds the many friends that they have come to know over the years who were truly remarkable to both meet know. Despite the many attractions and views, we believe that the best experience we had was the interaction and friendship that we developed with both Shawn and D'Arcy. They have mastered something very special to share with those who are willing. The many conversations and passionate care that they take of you will leave us forever changed and know that these two will be a special part of our lives for a very long time. It was difficult leaving as it almost felt as though we had found another home, but know that we will be back very soon and who knows, may never leave.... Thank you D'Arcy and Shawn!! We already miss you both!"

  • The only sounds are the constant waves and the occasional rooster

    "I stayed at El Jacalito with four friends for the most relaxing, enjoyable two week vacation of my well traveled life. This home is so spacious and comfortable with so many areas to congregate, dine, rest and chat that one feels to have an entire private resort at one's disposal. I loved the kitchen for staging buffet meals, appetizer spreads and quick meals on an impulse. Everything you need is there including candles for atmosphere and many seating options for couples or groups to enjoy. Without the distraction of TV and the internet, I found that we all talked to each other a lot and solved most of the world's problems, created all sorts of DIY craft projects and told adventure stories to each other that were nearly forgotten with our usual busy lives. We relaxed in the pool, the warm ocean and had rounds and rounds of splendid massage from the very kind caretaker who has magical hands. I would recommend a candlelight massage on the top of the the cabana with breezes blowing. Bring your favorite cream or lotion for an unforgettable experience. This is a very family friendly house with plenty of space for everyone. The caretakers are very competent and respectful of your peace and quiet but they are certainly available for any assistance or suggestions that you might need. I will return to this wonderful piece of paradise by the ocean, it would be hard to resist go again, I am making plans already."

  • ¡Espectacular!

    "Definitivamente las fotos no hacen honor a este lugar espectacular, muy bien ubicado en un área bastante tranquila del lago. 8 personas nos hospedamos cómodamente en la casa para la boda de una amiga, la casa es súper grande y lo cual nos encantó porque todas las damas de honor pudimos prepararnos para la boda en la casa. Marina nos atendió de lo mejor, muy proactiva nos preparó desayuno para que no tuvieramos que preocuparnos por nada más que descansar y disfrutar. 100% recomendada!"

  • Love it and can't wait to come back!

    "I am in my early 40's and well travelled (25+ countries). I am accustom to the quality and cleanliness you find in a 4 or 5 star hotel. My partner and I were very pleased to find The Romantic Casita met our expectations; and the property (grounds, pool, location, view, beach access) easily exceeded our expectations. The casita is a unit attached to the side of a larger home which is also rented out, therefore you will be sharing the grounds and pool with other guests. We expected this and had no issues/concerns/problems etc. Inside the unit we did not hear any noise/sounds from the guests in the larger house. Pros: -comfort/cleanliness -great bed -fantastic view, location, pool, and beach....absolutely stunning -gated community with armed guards -we ordered food (pupusas) from a vendor who came by on his bike - it was a fantastic, inexpensive and a unique service....and delicious -the food at the restaurants at the neighbouring beach (El Parmacito- ask the owners/property manager for directions) was fantastic and inexpensive eg. Breakfast (omelette) and coffee for two was $7 total. These restaurants are huts on the beach, however the food is fresh and restaurant quality. I had a lobster dinner which came with two small lobsters covered in prawns (20 +) with rice, salad, tortilla for $15. -unit has a combination safe -D'Arcy (owner) is excellent at responding quickly to any questions or concerns -Roxanne (ppty mgr) comes by each morning to attend to needs Things to keep in mind: -WIFI signal did not work for us until the last day (on the last day the ppty mgr advised us it works if you place the wifi stick by the window....only then did it work for us). -stairs - there are not a lot of stairs however people with disabilities will find the stairs and pathway to the pool challenging -in a residential area therefore not within walking distance to markets, shops -stop at the market on your way in to pick up groceries (don't forget oil, herbs, charcoal (for the BBQ) etc. -include hand soap, hair dryer, shampoo with the rest of your toiletries -AC is only in the bedroom -ants- this is a tropical destination so you have to expect to have ants, geckos etc. it is part and parcel! (Note: these ants did not bite). However, I recommend more effort be made into controlling them -traps etc. and be prepared to put all food items etc away regularly. This property was stunning and I can not wait to return to it. Highly recommended!"

El Salvador Travel Tips

Finding Your Way to El Salvador Vacation Rentals

El Salvador's main airport is the Comalapa International Airport which is located approximately 30 miles southeast of the capital city of San Salvado. The airport is commonly referred to as simply El Salvador International Airport. The airport hosts regular daily flights from international destinations, such as Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, San Jose and Guatemala. The flight time from Los Angeles is approximately four to five hours. If your vacation home offers an airport transfer service, it is advisable to make use of this. It may be slightly more expensive than a taxi fare but at least you can be assured that you will have a speedy and hassle-free transfer. There is public transport available in El Salvador but it is not advisable for visitors to use the buses. The taxis in the cities are usually reliable enough.

Travelers to El Salvador Villas

El Salvador is the smallest of the countries in Central America. It is tucked away on the Pacific coast between Guatemala and Honduras. It is one of the lesser-known travel destinations in Central America and the ideal place for those looking for tranquility and privacy. Enjoy miles of pristine beaches easily accessible from your vacation home. The luxurious villas make you feel like royalty enjoying a slice of your own private paradise. If you enjoy long leisurely walks along the beach, surfing or swimming, this is the ideal vacation destination for you. The villas are large enough to accommodate groups of 10 people or more, so invite your friends and enjoy some tropical luxury at a relatively affordable rate. Most visitors to El Salvador are from North, Central and South America with a much smaller percentage from Europe.

Things To Do at El Salvador Beach Houses

El Salvador is becoming known as a prime surfing destination. The miles and miles of beautiful coastline and the consistent swell provide ideal surfing conditions. You can wake up each morning and walk straight onto the beach from your vacation villa. Near the main resort towns, there are designated beaches for surfing and swimming. Flags also indicate the water conditions and if there are rip currents that you need to be aware of. La Libertad is one of the most popular surfing areas.

El Salvador is a leisurely vacation destination. Most people enjoy lazing poolside or on the beach and enjoying the tropical sunshine. If you are looking for some entertainment, you can visit some of the nightspots and enjoy some of the local Latin vibe. In you are interested in the country's history, you can visit some of the war museums which detail the country's turbulent past and provide insight into the culture of Salvadorians.

Best Time of Year to Visit El Salvador

Located in Central America, El Salvador enjoys a warm tropical climate. The coastal areas are hot and humid for most of the year, and the interior highlands are moderately more temperate. Like most other Central American destinations, the rainy season is from May to October. Tropical storms do occasionally blow in from the Pacific Ocean. Travelers should be cautious about traveling during late summer as this is when the storms occur most frequently. From November through April, the trade winds dissipate their humidity over Honduras and arrive in El Salvador as hot dry winds. This often leads to a hazy atmosphere which gives the landscape a mystical feel about it. For most people, this is the preferred time of year to visit and has become the peak tourist season.
