We had an amazing holiday at this hotel. All the staff are so pleasant and happy to help with anything. We had our beach wedding here too and the staff pulled out all the stops to make our day as amazing as it was. The rooms are clean and comfortable and you can hear the waves whilst laying in bed. The beach is lovely and full of wildlife with monkeys being a regular feature near the hotel and big iguanas visiting for a drink. Having breakfast and dinner right on the beach was lovely. There is kayaking and boat trips from the beach there and we saw rays and puffer fish etc when snorkeling. A big thank you to Mike and Crystal and all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.
This hotel is in great location, right on the beach in a beautiful cove and only 25 minutes from the airport which was great since we had an 8 am flight and had to return the car rental. The pool was unimpressive and right beside the eating area so didn’t bother especially with the ocean right there. The room was adequate except for the scratching coming from the roof which we hope was a bird lol. It was amazing to wake up early for our flight and hear the howler monkeys. Our room was on the second floor and getting our luggage up the winding staircase was a little difficult so if can get main floor. Overall a nice quaint hotel reasonably priced with amazing access to the beach.
Cute little beachfront hotel with great restaurants on either side of the hotel for beachfront drinks (Roberto’s and Aquasport - both great but really loved the drinks at Roberto’s). Amazing view! Felt safe walking around the area. Met the owner Mike - awesome guy who’s very knowledgeable of the area, and he spays/neuters the homeless beach dogs and cats to help control population (we fed them our leftovers down on the beach away from the hotel restaurant since apparently some people don’t like doggos mooching at the tables 😆). Not a Ritz Carlton, but clean, hot water, excellent AC, super friendly bar staff, and adorable little touches by the housekeepers. Try the pineapple pancakes for breakfast 🍍 We loved it!
This was our 4th visit to this hotel and we are already planing out return trip for 2022. The rooms and hotel are basic but very clean. The hotel is right on the beach with a restaurant on site. There are 2 other hotels on the beach which are nicer but what keeps us coming back is the staff. They are very friendly and accommodating to our requests.. I would rate this 10 stars in service. I have stayed at much fancier hotels where I have not this type of service. The waiters even come out to the beach to see if we needed anything. The food is also very good especially bar b que nights and the surf and turf from the regular menu. The hotel owner Mike also arraigned for a doctor to come do our Covid test on site so we didn’t have to leave the hotel.
Mike and his staff at El Velero hotel made our stay so comfortable. The rooms are extremely clean and there are beach towels to exchange for new ones daily. The atmosphere is very festive, fruit drinks made fresh daily and a fish grill on Wednesday & Saturday nights with the fresh catch was delicious. My son left his favorite teddy bear in the bed by accident and Mike even figured out a way to deliver him to the states. All around a really easy stay and the room price can not be beat!
