"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!"

"Our family of 5 just returned from 8 nights at Villa Bendicion. Mike was really helpful arranging transportation from the airport, to the grocery store and fish market, restaurants and other areas of El Salvador. We spent most days relaxing in the pool, reading or napping in the hammock. Three of us surfed and enjoyed great waves in warm water. No wetsuits! What a treat! The house was very comfortable and we all enjoyed getting to know Mike and his family. Having a few of our meals prepared for us (with the fish we bought at the fish market) was also one of the highlights or our time there. I highly recommend a visit and would return to El Salvador without hesitation."

"Our family of six enjoyed a long overdue getaway. What a wonderful treat it was to spend it at this beautiful spot. The grounds were beautiful. The house was clean and well equipped. The swimming pool was perfect! The personnel were superbly helpful. It was a delight to be there. We are already looking forward to going again. We recommend it 110%!"

"I was there for 1 night (suppose to be more but travel plans changed) and I wish we stayed longer! I was there with 3 of my family members, all 4 of us for comfortably in one bungalow, the bungalows were clean, even the bathroom. The most amazing part is the view from the room, you are literally on the Pacific Ocean shore, clean beach, perfect for a group of about 12 people (4 bungalows on the property) to have an intimate beach getaway. I felt like we had a little island all to ourselves. It's also perfect for a Romantic getaway... It's more soothing & quite compared to noisy El Tunco. Fresh air right when you step out of your room.
The place is gated and I felt safe, especially with the help of Roberto & Gris (caretakers). They gave us everything we needed and guided us as needed. They always cared about our safety, waiting with us when we were waiting to get picked up early in the morning (still very dark). Vilma, answered every email as soon as possible and answered all questions, made sure everything is taken care of. Highly recommend this place!!!"
