“Wow!!!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

My Sweetie and I flew from Miami to here for a four day weekend, this past weekend. Via email, Suni arrainged transportation to and from airport. We were picked up and traveled in a very nice van with good ole' music to listen to while traveling through the beautiful country side. Upon our arrival, the hotel grounds and ocean were just breath-taking. The staff here are truly the best. The food is awesome and the drinks are even awesomer! We stayed in room 5, which had a perfect view of the pool, bar and ocean. Even more gorgeous at night. You can arrange surf lessons, lay by the pool all day and eat and drink, or take the 10 minute walk into town by the beach. Keep in mind, you should wear shoes that can stand getting wet, because you WILL cross a small river to get into the town of El Tunco, where there are lots of places to eat, drink and buy trinkets. I ordered an 1 1/2 massage for $60. This tiny woman named Blanca performed an incredible and powerful massage. Blanca is a beast! This place, despite the constant roar of the ocean, is peaceful and perfect. I travel to Thialand and Cambodia in March, but am planning to squeeze another visit to Casa de Mar before then. Blanca, here I come...

Room Tip: Room 5 was perfect. Excellent view of the ocean, pool and bar.

Great staff. Loved Kroco, Cecelia, Deily, John and Blanca. Without being asked, Kroco carried my daughter down to the beach for me a couple of times because I was not used to walking on the rocks and was a little shaky. Beautiful views. Perfect location for surfers. Good food especially when you ask them to just bring down items from Cafe Sunzal. The beach is nonexistent for a good part of the day due to high tide but you can walk 5 minutes along the rocks to get to another beach during those times. There is AC but it is not very powerful but it is sufficient. The only problems I think have to be changed are for safety. The railings are not sufficient at all to hold back a little kid. Call them and let them know if you are traveling with little ones so you can get a first floor room. The new casitas do seem to have better railings going in. The other problem, the deck around the pool needs to be sanded and painted or replaced. My child and another got splinters from running around on it while we were there. Bring pool shoes for the kids until they get this fixed. We will definitely go back.

We loved loved loved our stay at Casa de Mar. we found the staff amazing, the rooms big, spacious and super comfortable...the weather didn't cooperate as best at it could but everything else. we also really enjoyed the food. Both of us (me and my love) are big foodies and enjoyed the grub... and also the tasty margaritas... can't wait to be back soon!

Room Tip: pic the second floor rooms for a good ocean view...

Awesome place ! Went with 3 friends on a surf trip! Well worth the extra money. Super safe and secure! David was awesome and Cocoa took care or anything we asked! The restaurant next door was absolutely incredible. The view of Sunzal point break was directly out back. Private beach and gate to come and go from the ocean surfing!

Room Tip: Room 3 has a the best view!

I am a native from El Salvador, my wife and I fly back home twice a year and this place is the nicest, most private property we have stayed in. 90% of the guests are foreingners, the rooms are spacious. Casa De Mar is on the expensive side compared to everything near by, but it's worth every penny. If you live to surf and want a nice secure, private place this is it.

We were looking for a nice place to spend the weekend with our girls and we found this Hotel that caught us from the start. Quit place, not so many people, few rooms. The staff is really nice and all the rooms, no matter how far you are, have an ocean view. Rooms are clean, huge, have space, comfy, everything is perfect. The deck they have in the second floor, is just incredible at night. I recommend this hotel for a couple getaway or a family trip. Its very close to the city, like 30 min and has great food. Helpful tip: Stay within the hotel's beach area. The beach beside the hotel is public and you can see things you don't want your kids to see. The restaurant has great food and if Its wonderful the breakfast was really healthy and it was included in the price. At the beginning we thought it was kind of expensive but then we realized it is worth it. The pool is very clean and nice, the beach has a lot of stones and if the high tide you cant have access to it. A downside its the rocky beach they have, you have to walk carefully and carry your little ones because there are a lot of them in the entire way to the water. Other than that everything is wonderful, you only see foreign people trying to relax. Since they don't have too many rooms, there is a lot of privacy and is never too crowded. We really loved it!!
