“Our Favorite Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

My wife and I married on 9 May 2009, and stayed at the Casa de Mar Hotel. We were able to enjoy friends and family at the event and after. The hotel and Cafe Sunzal staff were extremely helpful before, during and after the wedding. This hotel has remained our favorite

We are returning 09 May 13.

Room Tip: Ask for view of the beach.

I stayed at this hotel a couple of days ago (27th and 28th of march 2013) for two nights, I was very impressed by the nice service, the room itself (number 7) was just lovely. Quiet at night. It has a great view of the garden the pool, the deck and the ocean with surfers in it.

The room was very clean. It had a nice TV, cable and a DVD. The shower is great, breakfast as well. I really recommend this hotel for couples, singles, big families, etc.

Room Tip: Room 7 has a wonderful view

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

We arrived here by accident. We booked this on the day of arrival when reservations went wrong with another hotel. It was a little pricey and more than we usually pay but worth every cent in the end. The 2 unit buildings with one room on top and one at floor level are set on a cliff like hill and far away from the street. Such a quiet, peaceful place, lovely gardens, large pool with chairs and towels supplied right on the ocean.

From our #5 top floor room we could see both the pool and the ocean. Large room with great bathroom that had lots of storage, a sitting room, large TV with cable, purified water supplied every day and any other thing you can think of...and of course the private, well equipped balcony with the view.

We enjoyed the excellent breakfasts and walked 5 minutes along the beach to El Tunco village where there were many food options as well. We did have a few dinners and lunch at the hotel and the seafood and pizzas were good.

We are not surfers but my husband does enjoy the beach but found it to be very rocky (in fact several surfers got injured on the rocks) and very jagged so not like you can go for long walks. Also, the jagged beach does not allow you to really see the sunset from the hotel unless you climb to the restaurant. The sunrise, on the other hand is easy to see, and quite stunning from the pool area right at the hotel.

Staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. We would definitely return to stay if returning to El Tunco.

Room Tip: Try to get a 2nd floor with a balcony such as #5 or #7.

Tremendous week long experience doing Yoga with Heidi Xethalis from Strala in NYC and one of the most beautiful surfing spots aI have ever seen.

Casa De Mar is 1) located on one of the best surfing points in El Salvador 2) is only five years old, 3) has a great staff and 4) the accommodations are top notch.

I highly recommend it!

Stayed here a night with my family. The rooms are gorgeous with an excellent view of the ocean. My kids loved the pool and boogey boarding on the beach. Walking down the beach during the day and exploring El Tunco is also a great experience. At night we walked up to Restaurante Sunzal and had a wonderful meal on cliffs above the ocean. You don't have to be a surfer to easily enjoy this hotel.

Our family needed a little get-a-way so we booked a night at Casa de Mar (we live in San Salvador). It is hands-down the best beach hotel I have visited in El Salvador.

The atmosphere is chic and sophisticated yet super laid back and relaxed. The service was attentive and friendly but almost invisible so that we really felt at home. The food was delicious, fresh and healthy. We even brought our kids (2 and 4) and didn't feel uncomfortable or like we were bothering anyone because the place is quite big and has a lot of little "hidden spaces" where you can enjoy your privacy (or allow others to have theirs).

We are not surfers but it was wonderful to watch the action in the waves and to venture down and play on the beach and in the water which is DELIGHTFUL at this time of year (Nov-Dec). The pool is PERFECT for little kids and adults because it has a broad, wide shelf the kids can sit/stand on and a shallow area, plus it curves around behind lots of foliage so you can escape the kid scene, too. It's not really a kids hotel, but with the pool and the beach, everyone kept busy and happy.

Rooms are super clean and have "the details" like ample hooks in the showers for hanging wet swimstuff, powerful AC, big towels, room-darkening shades, room to put your stuff, etc.

It looks like they are expanding, too, which will be fun to see in the future.

Thank you Casa de Mar for providing top-notch hospitality in El Sal!!!!

We stayed here in January and were underwhelmed. We felt the service was less than stellar and in fact a little rude on account of us being Salvadoreans. We decided to return again and were glad we did! The service has been great since we arrived!!! Everyone is exceedingly friendly, hospitable and kind. Especially would we like to recognize Omar who was Very solicitous. Breakfast and lunch which we ate at the cafe next to the pool were fantastic. The chicken sandwich with rosemary potatoes; had salvadorean twist and was great! Dinner which we had upstairs was just okay but it looks like they have a new menu planned. The location is fantastic and overall this hotel is a great value! We will definitely return and this time we are looking forward to it.
