"I've stayed in a lot of beach homes around the world and El Jacalito is definitely in my top 3! I was leading a mission trip team of 9 people to San Salvador for 10 days and we wanted to rent a beach home to spend our last 3 days at the end of our trip to celebrate what we'd accomplished and to simply relax and enjoy the beauty of the sun, surf and palm trees, all in the comfort of a nice home. This house and property fulfilled our every need and more!
We needed 9 individual beds...there are 12 in the 5 spacious rooms. We wanted a friendly staff to take care of cooking...watch out...Maura is a phenomenal cook and she and her husband will kill you with their kindness! :) The kitchen is so perfect for everything you need and the outdoor, covered living/dining space doesn't get much better! Step out into the pool area and you feel like your at a 5 star resort. You can sip on hot coffee in the mornings while swinging in the hammocks that surround the beachside gazebo. The sunrises and sunsets are stunning and las olas (the waves) are non-stop.
Organizing the rental with an american owner (Carol) made things so much easier and smooth. She has a great heart and offers up lots of advice for enjoying all the area has to offer. The other great feature is that it's a quick and easy ride from the airport at about 40 mins. So it makes arrival and departure a breeze.
If you want to totally unplug, and disconnect from the noisy fast paced life that we are so used to, I highly recommend El Jacalito. This is my new go-to home for El Salvador and all of my mission trip teams!"

"I booked this place for a weekend getaway with some coworkers and we could not have been happier. The grounds are gorgeous, everything is kept in great condition, and Marina, the domestic employee, was really great. She helped prep some meals for us and was a huge hit with our friend's toddler. We spent most of our time relaxing in the grand sala and floating off the end of the dock. The water is clean and clear and cool. We didn't use the pool at all, which was essentially the same temperature as the lake - I suppose it would be nice when the weather gets hotter because it's in the shade. We had a wonderful time staying here and a hard time leaving at the end. Tip: bring bug spray... we got some nasty bites."

"Just got back and can't say enough good things about our experience. The house itself is great. Right on the beach with a restaurant right next door that rents surfboards for $10 and has good food. Tunco, Zonte Sunzal all close.
But what puts this place over the top are the incredible people. Sergio and his family are the caretakers, and they are always there to help, and the pool and grounds are immaculate. Then there is the dog Fooki who will cruise the beach with you then settle on the steps protecting. Everyday Linda (the property manager) and her husband would stop by to see how things were going. Linda helped us get taxis into town to shop, cooked a couple of meals for us (she is a very good cook!), and was going to set up a waterfall hike for us (but the weather turned). Monty the owner was very helpful when we needed to contact him, and took care of everything beyond expectations. Thanks Monty!!! I highly recommend his casa.
It was really great to have them all around; the vacation would not have been the same without the help of these awesome people."
