I have never had better French fries than the kayu fries. If you are a seafood lover the shrimp cocktails and fish dishes are some of the best...

Marvin and his staff made our trip one to remember! The resort had great views and was a relaxing retreat. Our activities included surfing, swimming, hiking, and admiring the natural environment. We enjoyed trips to the volcano, fish market, waterfalls, and the village. Thanks to Marvin's attention to detail, all of our special requests were granted!

I stayed here for three nights at the end of two weeks in El Salvador. We treated ourselves to the luxurious big rooms overlooking the pool and weren't disappointed (they weren't even that expensive!). The staff and owners were super friendly and collected us from another hostel and arranged our airport transfer. It's got an epic view over el sunzal...
