Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We traveled with our little dog and they had no problem with him. The food was good and the breakfast was delicious. The space above the rooms with hammocks and chairs is great for working.
Cons: The road to the hotel was in very bad shape. The place felt a little understaffed. When we got there the gate was closed, and we had to honk a couple of times to get someone to open it. The biggest shortcoming is that it is not directly on the beach, but a couple minutes away. The walk to the beach was muddy and we had to go through a beach restaurant to get there. The beach is not very clean in that area either.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Michanti was so beautiful and the staff was very hospital. It was a great experience all around, I have zero complaints. Amazing surf and still great even if you don’t surf.

Pros: Breakfast was great! Quantity and Quality wise. i usually ask for the Tradicional Kayu. Complete meal.

9.6 Excellent

Cons: We asked if late night transport could be made available to El Tunco town, and a shuttle was offered for $25... which is about 10 times what the "normal" cost should be for a roughly 1 mile drive. If it had been a more reasonable/fair offer we would have taken advantage of it.

Hotel Roca Sunzal - El Sunzal - Pool
6
8.7 Excellent (201 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Hotel Roca Sunzal in La Libertad, you'll be on the beach, steps from Sunzal Beach and a 2-minute drive from El Majahual Beach. Featured amenities include luggage storage and a safe deposit box at the front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Roca Sunzal is located in the heart of a tourist strip. It can be a bit tricky getting there as the streets are narrow and run only one way but once you're there you park the car and move on leg power thru the area. The hotel is right in front of El Tunco and has a pool and restaurant on site. The breakfast was wonderful and we received excellent service from Moises during our stay. Right across the street from the hotel is a place called Dale Dale Cafe which served great pupusas! It had a really nice relaxing ambience on the outside patio as well. At night Roca Sunzal puts chairs and small tables on the beach as the famous "Tunco" is lit up by the adjacent club. We ordered drinks and enjoyed the beautiful star filled sky on a breezy summer night. What an awesome way to end the night! We weren't bothered by the noise of the nightclub next to the hotel as our rooms were on the opposite side.
Cons: The beds were way too firm. The bathrooms were really small and the water pressure was horrible but I suppose that's to be expected as they are a beach front hotel running on well water. The beach is really rocky with no loungers or umbrellas available so it's just best to use the hotel pool. Our sons room had a nest of squeaky bats flying in and out of the balcony all night. They were outside but it was still a little annoying as we never wanted to open the door to the balcony much less go and sit out there.

6.7 Good
Pros: Clean. Rooms comfortable. Night door man was friendly and helpful. Management not so much.
Cons: Kitchens facilities severely lacking. One spoon for all guests?? Mugs cracked and broken. They could really do with spending some money on crockery etc since your paying 50$usd a night. staff not very helpful. Wifi didn’t work in room as stated it should. Kitchen area is like a sauna a fan at least would help this. Our air con in room was very cool but the thermostat didn’t work so could not control the temperature.
7.5 Good
Pros: The service and the two pools were great. The facilities and garden are wonderful.
Cons: The beds are very uncomfortable. They need to be changed. The drapes need to be changed aswell as they would always be completely removed during night time.
7.1 Good
Pros: Very basic room with just a bed and one table. No hooks or hangers for clothes or towels. Basic kitchen with no electric jug and all the cups were chipped and cracked.

6.7 Good
Pros: Close to the beach with a nice pool. Reception was helpful and printed out some documents we needed for no charge. Good cheap restaurant on site.
Cons: Neighbours a night club which plays loud music until 1pm ish each night - we had to sleep with noise cancelling headphones to try block out the sound. No hot water so all showers are cold (we were told the hotel never has hot water). You have to request your room to be cleaned each day - not an issue, but would have thought for the price this would be done regardless.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Staff was Great and Helpful! they were Great!
Cons: All was good since arrival!
6.3 Good
Pros: Room was clean, air con was good. Nice pool.
Cons: Frankly, it's a rip off to charge 70 dollars a night for the old rooms near the gate/restaurant. Suggest just walking into hotels along the main street instead of booking. Advertised room had balcony, looked much nicer and was in building by pool but was not what we were given. Wifi did not reach the room.
6.5 Good
Pros: The staff where more than helpful.
Cons: There wasn't any thing either to place luggage or to hang any clothing. We improvised where to lay our clothing on the floor, over aa towel.

7.5 Good
Pros: The landscaping was beautiful.
Cons: Pool wasn’t the cleanest but good size and the restaurant didn’t open until later in the day.
5.4 Okay
Pros: I was charged $22 dollars more than what they advertised on the site, and I had stayed there 4 days previous to the reservation and the price was totally Higher than what I had paid. I didn’t seem right to me Secondly I had reserve a room with balcony and it appeared that what they had on the reservation was A garden style unit.
Cons: They need to listen to customers needs and concerns And not act as if they are the last cola cola in the desert.
7.5 Good
Pros: Our room at the front (one of 5) over the bar looking out at the ocean, waves and surfers, was nothing short of stunning and spectacular viewing. This was our main request and reason for booking and indeed for staying another night 4 in total. The AIRCON was good as was daily room service it’s not often you get a full bed and towel change. WiFi was good.Breakfast was okay but expected better surrounding and service for a “hotel”.
Cons: La Guitarra Hotel and Bar : BAR definitely, luckily we can sleep through noise mainly due to enjoying a view cervezas. BE WARNED FRIDAY AND SATURDAY IT IS LOUD IN THESE 5 SEA VIEW ROOMS DISCO AND OR LIVE MUSIC FROM 2000 - 0230. we also stayed (low season) Sunday Monday which was a total contrast. but I suspect more of the same in season (worth checking) HOTEL : Price Yes that said it was cheaper than others nearby possibly in anticipation of the noise Friday Saturday and the competition the rest of the week ? HOTEL : NO WAY SORRY ... no hot water ... no where to hang clothes (we had to live out of our cases) .. no mirror in bedroom (ladies love mirrors for dressing and make up and our bathroom mirror was simply too high) ..no tv ... no plug socket in bedroom only in tiled headboard behind pillows .. no complimentary bottled water top up ...no chair(s) in bedroom. ... no glasses for teeth brushing. We feel the above are expected in HOTELS ... Why did we stay and not check out .... THE BALCONY AND THE VIEW ... Now you know the decision is yours.

Cons: The don't have POS machine
5.8 Okay
Pros: The breakfast was really good and the staff are friendly.
Cons: The hotel was a huge disappointment. For the price it is very basic and the room was incredibly small. The AC was welcomed but the machine was old, noisy and located above our heads making sleeping difficult. The hotel is also on a main road so we were constantly woken by traffic, animals and people. The pool needs to be cleaned more regularly and the rooms need to be redecorated.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Great view of the sea from the room. Pool was nice too. It's about 30 minutes walk around to El Tunco beach or you can walk along the beach and it's 10 minutes to the left when you walk out. The water in front of the house is all Rocky, so it's not suitable to swim in. There is another beach to the right it's Sandy, it's about 10 minutes walk. No air conditioning. Kitchen is not good. There is parking.
Cons: No air conditioning and kitchen facilities poor.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place, right in front of the beach, with a nice swimming pool to cool down, hammock to chill, commun kitchen , nice people around ... all good!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed our stay so much that we have extended for a few more days. The hostal is peaceful with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and beautiful location. It is right next to the beach where you can surf or have fires on the rocks, and El Tunco is 10 minutes walk where there are restaurants and bars. We enjoyed relaxing in the outdoor pool watching the waves, and chilling on the sofas and hammocks on the terrace. Our room was comfortable with a fan and had a view of the sea. It felt very safe. Definitely recommend.
Cons: Our bed was very hard.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location location location. Pool right on the beach with hammocks to chill on. Surf literally 100m away from the pool. Short walk to el tunco.
Cons: Beers went missing out of the fridge. Missed our check out ride into el tunco because we didn’t hear a whistle from a staff member while we were waiting by the pool.
7.5 Good
Pros: The pool was fantastic, amazing views of the sunset and the surf. Kitchen was decent and the area is very quiet at night. Other guests were lovely. Lovely view of the ocean from our room (although there's a sofa right by the window so wasn't totally private).
Cons: Definitely a bit dated, could do with replacing toilet seats/shower curtains as the bathroom smelt awful when we walked in. It's a solid 15 minute walk from El Tunco over mostly a stony beach, which got a bit old after a couple of days. Check in person didn't seem to know who we were, but realised later that he was the cleaner!
7.5 Good
Pros: I liked the access to the kitchen and fridge, the view from the upper veranda is excellent and access to surf is right there.
7.9 Good
Pros: Great location right next to the beach and a good pool. 10 minute walk to main road/bus stop. No supermarkets nearby but a short 25 cent chicken bus ride to La Libertad. Basic hostal but comfortable and a great place to relax
Cons: Kitchen could have been cleaner.

5.0 Okay
Pros: The view is unbeatable
Cons: There was no wifi, the sheets were dirty with someone else’s hair and snot, there was no hot water and the door of the bathroom was clear glass that had a makeshift curtain that you could hang up on a hook if you were tall enough to reach the hook and I’m 160 cm and not tall enough so I had to go to the toilet risking someone seeing me, they will only take cash not card
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It's right on the water front, perfect place to assess the surf or surfers! Very quiet and lots of sun loungers, hammocks, etc to relax in. The staff are great, really friendly. You can get massages on site. Barely any English spoken though if that matters to you.
Cons: Basic facilities, a bit rough around the edges! Some doors lock but you can't take the key out, do the lock is pointless! There is CCTV apparently though. There is only one bathroom, containing the only shower and toilet. The door to the bathroom doesn't close properly, or have a lock, and it has a glass pane in it! The system is that you draw a curtain in front of the door to signal that it's occupied. None of this is major, it's just a bit annoying, but the price is very cheap so it all balances out.
4.4 Okay
Cons: Appearance of the facilitirs
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The room is on the shore ,the lady I think her name is larely shes great help all around ,I feel bad that she has to deal with ernesto while she works hes on the hammock playing games.
Cons: The person (ernesto)running the place is not trust worthy i dont usually talk about people in reviews but i got a negative feeling base on certain questions i ask and was giving an odd answer and Theres no wifi even though it advertises that there is and the " wifi " you get is from his phone which I see he uses it for gaming on line .......no good
5.8 Okay
Pros: Great location right at the beach! Couple of hammocks and chairs to chill. When our bed became wet due to a storm, they offered a different room for the night. Friendly surf instructor.
Cons: We stayed here in the low/rainy season (August) and therefore the kitchen and bar were closed, which we did not expect. The rooms are very basic and are only 4 walls underneath the big thatched roof, and the animals like crabs could just walk underneath the door to join you inside. If you don't like this, maybe it is better to choose the deluxe room, which is one of the rooms on poles. The keys are stuck in the doors so it is not really possible to lock it, however they have security cameras and the laidback surf place feels safe. The Wi-Fi didn't work...
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It was great that I could cooked there, the bed was very comfortable, and the views from the rooms were awesome
Cons: I think curtains are necessary at night, there wasn't key for rooms.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of the best places I have been. A cabin on the beach, with a view of the sea. Perfect to relax and to surf. Also the staff is nice and helpfull and friendly.
Cons: Everything really nice.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Great location
Cons: Public bathroom could see into our room, shared a wall with it and no individual ceilings, just walls, so your room would light up everytime someone turned on the light and you could hear everyone use the bathroom. The free Wi-Fi is actually just the hotspot on his phone, which was only on about 10 minutes our 4 day stay. There were windows in the bathroom and living room, so I had to literally push a mattress across the wall so people couldn't see in. Owner was rude, unprofessional, and greedy.

Cons: We asked if late night transport could be made available to El Tunco town, and a shuttle was offered for $25... which is about 10 times what the "normal" cost should be for a roughly 1 mile drive. If it had been a more reasonable/fair offer we would have taken advantage of it.

8.5 Excellent (314 reviews)
Overview Reviews

6.7 Good
Pros: Close to the beach with a nice pool. Reception was helpful and printed out some documents we needed for no charge. Good cheap restaurant on site.
Cons: Neighbours a night club which plays loud music until 1pm ish each night - we had to sleep with noise cancelling headphones to try block out the sound. No hot water so all showers are cold (we were told the hotel never has hot water). You have to request your room to be cleaned each day - not an issue, but would have thought for the price this would be done regardless.

6.3 Good
Pros: Room was clean, air con was good. Nice pool.
Cons: Frankly, it's a rip off to charge 70 dollars a night for the old rooms near the gate/restaurant. Suggest just walking into hotels along the main street instead of booking. Advertised room had balcony, looked much nicer and was in building by pool but was not what we were given. Wifi did not reach the room.
