El Salvador is one of the few resorts on Cebu Island on the Main Highway north of Cebu City centre. It is a very convenient stop over for travellers going north to places like Santa Fe on Bantayan Island. We live in Liloan about 20 minutes away and often go there for a relaxing dinner and swim either on the beach or in their pools. Our latest booking was for 2 guests from Australia who wanted to nearby to us. They were very impressed with the facilities and especially the friendly staff. We have more visitors to Cebu coming soon and will book them into El Salvador also as it is quality accommodation.
A nice choice among very few choices in Danao.”
There are very few lodging choices in Danao City, but if you are willing to spend USD 40 or more, this place is probably the best choice. It looks more like a tropical garden than a beach resort, very well maintained and clean. The restaurant offers a good selection of food and beverages, and breakfast is buffee style. I have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed.
Transit for Two Night”
There is not much choice available in Danao, and perhaps Elsavador Neach Resort is the best out here. I was there to travel on to Camotes Island and back on a day-trip for business. The hotel name with the word "Beach" can be abit mis-leading, as the beach, if I am not mistaken is an artificial one. And I believe the beach can only be swim-ed when the tide is up. I was at the beach during low tide. Ii did enjoy soaking my feet in the salt water but it was to shallow to do anything else. As a transiting traveler, I took the cheapest room that was available. The room was clean and neat, but abit too small for my liking. However, Elsalvador does have a very spacious outdoor, with reasonable size swimming pools, which perhaps design to compensate for the lacking of a swim-able beach. I must add, I enjoy the dinner prepared by the hotel restaurant, and spend two dinners there.
A great little resort in a stange location”
I really enjoyed my stay at El Salvador. Good room, great staff, lovely food and other facilities. Fantastic pools shrouded in gardens. It has seaside, but no beach. Also, it can take a lot of time/money to get into Cebu city and back from the location at Danao.
A must stay hotel”
Honestly, the first stay was a bit discouraging due to the pressure of the water that was just an upgrade of a drip. However, the entire place; including the location (first and foremost as it is closer to where my family lives) polite and friendly staff, the landscaping of the resort and the place being right on the beach- inhaling fresh air in the mornings were a welcome atmosphere to be in. On top of this, one of the owners (the resort is family-owned) being a friend, is always there to make sure our stay was pleasant, which made it a choice for the second visit, and wherein now I am writing this review. So, this second stay is definitely way better in terms of my first complaint in the first paragraph. It seemed that they had updated the bathroom with a rain-shower head, good water pressure and a big tub! The free breakfast buffet definitely was a great welcome part of the stay. The staff for some reason just kept on getting better with their services. Truly recommended!
Superb customer service and maintenance of the property”
I am simply amazed.. the last time we visited was back in 2009 and when we returned, the property's amenities and rooms are still up to par with our expectations, even more! You would expect a resort that has been in service for more than 10 yrs would show wear and tear but not El Salvador. Everything is updated and nooks and crannies were sparkling clean. Im also very happy about the staff, very polite and courteous, greeting you as they meet you. Only downside would be the breakfast buffet selections. Some were bland and I was honestly expecting more like tocino or tapa to balance it out with the daing and eggs but i was happy to see fresh fruits. Wifi was also weak, connection was spotty but it wasnt that a big a deal. We were there to unwind and enjoy away from the city. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our stay. Wish we could have stayed longer and at a bigger room. Good job El salvador and thanks agoda!
HONEST RESORT ”
Stayed many times, nice older resort and foliage, clean pools, very friendly, very nive included morning breakfast buffet in beautiful setting, eggs to order pancakes, freh fruit, both native and western offerings... worn out double bed in Garden View Economy rooms ... hot water as you need satisfactory, clean bath.. they included complimentary gifts of carbonated apple juice and treats and dinner buffet two days around Christmas and New Years... GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! We have stayed at another resort in Danao, but Elsavador is HONEST!!!! They have WiFI, Water, Included Breakfast while the other advertises but fails to deliver. Honesty wins me over every time!!!
Pador Family Short Vacation 2018”
I highly recommended this resort specially to guests with kids. It’s a peaceful place. A good place to relax and unwind from the city noise. Also, the location is not that far from the Cebu City.
Great resort for the $”
This Resort is a great place to stay. Good Value for the price. Quiet and peaceful place to relax. Good restaurant with great room service. Will stay here again when in the Cebu area
We stayed in El Salvador everytime we travel to Danao city. I enjoyed staying there because of the ambiance, the design of landscape inside the resort is relaxing. Buffet breakfast is also very good.
Great place, great food!”
This place is clean, cool and caters to every need of their guests. Highly recommended if you are in Danao City!
wide selection of food in the restaurant. reasonably priced. buffet breakfast is good. our room was new and very clean. relaxing ambiance in the resort. 2 pools + the beach. no shoreline and sand is not white but the seawater is clean and nice spot to swim.
Convinient hotel with excellent customer service ”
Easy to get to from Danao port, lovely pool areas set within well kept gardens. The restaurant has a good range of choices and food was well cooked. The team were especially helpful, arranging taxis for us etc.
A couple of days away”
I went to this resort as it wasn't too far from Cebu city. There wan't much of a beach as it was a small piece of beach wedged between to walls that extended out into the ocean. The wifi in the rooms was terrible but worked better on the small terraces. The grounds were lovely and green and there were a couple of pools to cool off in. It is on the major road but I never heard it. There rooms were a little stuffy but got better once the aircon was turned on. The walls were a little thin and you could hear the neighbours. When I was there they were doing work in a room that was far to disturbing and kind of ruined the experience. I was there for quiet and relaxing and got some of what I wanted. I was looking forward to a walk on the beach but that didn't happen either. The breakfast was good and so was the food.
Resort on the seaside”
There is no beach at the resort as the waves hit the sea wall all the time. Best to swim in the two hotel pools or laze in the hot tub. It is outside of Danao town so will need to take a jeepney or bike into town for other food selection or the beaches.
lovely resort on the coast of Cebu. quiet, good food, pool, gym, spa, and beach...what more could you want?
The facilities here are great, the staff is great, the prices are pretty good for a resort, food is decent. The place seems a little old but is very very well maintained. The place was pretty much empty during the week and I had the run of it (probably could cater to 50 guests). Perhaps my biggest problem was not being able to find enough sun at times (lots of shade here) But great place, I will be back!
Memorable stay at El Salvador Beach Resort”
It was off-peak season when we stayed at the El Salvador Beach Resort so we get to enjoy a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The resort was clean and most of the staff were courteous. The restaurant offers great food too and you can request to have a table set up near the beach. I think the only improvement needed is a bigger parking space.
Good For families and couples”
The Hotel double booked my room and then tried to charge me for an upgrade. I don't know if it was a language communication issue or they were trying to gouge me. Ultimately, the issues was cleared up, but the desk staff was extremely unfriendly. The other staff were much more capable and friendly. The location is awful. Although the hotel is nice, it certainly isn't worth the standard rate based on location alone. Don't be fulled by this hotel being on the beach. It's beauty is comparable to Atlantic City at best. I was a solo traveler and a single guy. This place seems to cater more to couples that want to get away from the big city. However, there was a big company convention that overwhelmed the dining area. It left me soured but I understand that these things happen. However, a little warning from the staff would have been welcomed. In short. I would take a wife or girlfriend here. However, that staff needs to go to charm school and learn basic customer interaction.
