My family and I just returned from a long over due vacation in El Salvador where our first three days of our trip we stayed at Small Hideaway resort with a private beach with security in El Zunzal. There were 9 of us, we had two bungalows. As we arrived shortly after we landed. We were stunned by the beautiful view of the ocean and the surrounding area it was breath taking. The pool area on the upper grounds was great and clean. Although you have to walk a couple of flights of stairs to get to the bungalows it was well worth it. The beautiful black sand beach was just steps away from our rooms. With many amenities. The owner Vilma kept in touch with my husband from begging to end. She is awesome.Not to mention her staff Daniel, Noemi and her sister we're so welcoming and made us feel at home. They prepared us a delicious breakfast every morning. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance. But Noemi and her sister are an amazing cooks they prepared us lunch and dinner a couple of days and it was delicious not to mention way cheaper than going elsewhere. They made it possible for us to have an amazing and unforgettable stay. We posted pictures on our social media and everyone was asking where we were. We highly recommend this place. So, if you just want to Hideaway and relax for a few days this is your place. We can honestly say that if God allows it. We will go back. Thanks for the memories Vilma and staff.
When we arrived, the view was stunning. There are a few stairs to go down to the bungalows but well worth it. The bungalow was wonderful, clean, Free wifi, beds were wonderful, no issues with the ac, mini fridge( descent size that worked very well) free delicious breakfast made by the owner Vilma.
We were very pleased with the service provided by everyone, daniel and his wife ( they were wonderful) daniel we hired to do some trips for us at a reasonable price, he is very genuine and we loved that about him. Vilma, can't say enough about her. She always came to us to make sure everything was going good, we had long chats with her which me and my husband really enjoyed. She is wonderful amd very kind.
The beach was stunning just a few steps away from our bungalow. We really enjoyed this property. The sounds of the waves were just stunning. We cooked a few times as we were assigned a bungalow with a kitchenette. Vilma was wonderful in decorating our bungalow as I had requested ( husband's birthday). My husband was very happy.
There is Beto's restaurant within walking distance and also lo nuestro within walking distance. We really enjoyed Lo nuestro restaurant, amazing food, wonderful view of the ocean and great service. You can order your food from lo nuestro, they will deliver ask Daniel or Vilma for a copy of the menu. Beto's has also a stunning view of the ocean but they are quite expensive.
Vilma, thank you again for all your help, from ALL my emails prior to my arrival up to our departure. You are an amazing person and host. We will come back but I promise, we will stay longer :)
Kudos to your team for working always hard and on top of that, with a great smile. We miss you guys already. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and generosity.

This place is amazing! Beautiful beach, the rooms were clean and AC work perfect. The pool and pool area were clean and nice as well. The best part was the people Vilma and Daniel were truly fabulous host. I will be coming back!
We stayed at Villa Del Sol for 2 weeks in February. The bungalow is very simple, one room with a bathroom and an outdoor kitchen, but the overall property is stunning. It is set in the side of a cliff and the bungalows are right on the beach. The view is fantastic! There is also a pool. We were there during low season and except for one night, we were the only guests. If you have multiple families or a larger group, there are 4 separate bungalows to rent.
The owner, Vilma, took very good care of us! She took us to town for groceries, made sure that we had everything we needed, and even taught us how to make fresh salsa.
The house caretakers were also wonderful. We had a bit of a language barrier as we spoke very little English, but they were willing to help out with anything we needed. We even hired Daniel to take us out on a few daytrips.
The private beach is very large and flat. It was ideal for building castles and playing on the beach. The water was wavy and great for playing in the waves.
There are a few restaurants within walking distance (5-10 minutes). The public bus runs in front of the property and you can catch the bus to El Sunzal, El Tunco, La Libertad and even San Salvador. El Sunzal and El Tunco are about a 20 and 30 minute walk.
Thank you Vilma for your hospitality! We had a wonderful vacation!
