Great overall stay. Service was exceptional. Beautiful well maintained property. Tucked away from the hustle but close enough to walk to. Food at the restaurant was fantastic. Close to Bocana and Bocanita surf breaks. Would stay here again without question.

The initial visit was during the March-April 2020 SAL airport Covid closure. The return in August was a big change - hardly anyone around compared to lots of happy Salvadoran vacationers. Facilities continue to be far-and-away the best in El Tunco with exemplary grounds, housekeeping, staff, food services, and improved infrastructure (roads, sidewalks). Even with the high occupancy that included daytime users, the service was remarkably well maintained. Menu items at nearby Roca Sunzal were a better fit for some dietary preferences though.

Yes I am giving a property and the management an excellent review before we have even had a chance to stay there. We have had to change our plans twice now due to COVID. The management at Boca Olas has been responsive and helpful. Carlos Cerrano helped us resolve our problem and the hotel responded to our request immediately. We have read the reviews of how beautiful this resort is. We cannot wait to finally get there after COVID. If there customer service is an indication of what we can expect, I know we will enjoy our stay.

This resort is small, quaint, and super clean. The staff seemed to be cleaning all day, and it was refreshing to see. The rooms were spacious, clean, the beds are firm but not uncomfortable. The housekeeping cleans the rooms daily at 10a or 3p (the time is your choice). You get fresh towels daily which is a plus. We had breakfast included with our reservation and it was so worth it. The food was made fresh and delicious. Make sure you get their early because even with the hotel not being full the restaurant gets busy in the morning. The resort has 2 pools both have bars, but only one has a swim up bar. I would be nice if there was a designated kids pool after a certain time because the children took over both pools and were loud and obnoxious. I will say that security on the resort made sure that adults supervised their children or the children we're asked to leave the pool. The drinks are amazing and the bartender Daniel is the best! Everyone was very nice and welcoming. I will be back on my next trip to El Salvador.
