Superb converted hacienda blending colonial features with stylish interior design, without losing its Central American vibrancy and character.

The lovely 200-year old building housing the Hotel Los Amendros de San Lorenzo is just one block from Suchitoto's main square. It's a former hacienda which was lovingly renovated by the French-Salvadorian owners, blending colonial features with fresh, modern interior design as well as local artwork and antiques. There's plenty of personality here, and the warm colour palette and mix of rattan with heavy wood furniture and original stonework conveys a charm and character very much in keeping with its setting.

From an unassuming exterior, a grand wooden door leads to a cool tiled reception and shady, tropical courtyard, around which the six individually decorated guestrooms are arranged. All have high ceilings and stylish furnishings. The glass-enclosed restaurant, perched above the stone pool in the garden, serves French cuisine with local touches and is acknowledged as one of the best restaurants in the country. There's also a bar and elegant library.

  • This was one of our favourite places in a month long trip. Beautiful buildings, furniture and artworks made it feel like a private home. Suchitoto is a friendly small town…

Our Expert's Opinion

Los Almendros is arguably the best hotel in the country. French owner Pascal is very welcoming and only too happy to explain the history of the hotel and the surrounding area. He can arrange private day trips from the hotel which are not cheap but they're very personalized. He also has a beach house property so you can combine both places on your holiday to El Salvador.
