Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice vacation, the house exceeded our expectations. Every room of the house was nice and clean. The staff are very kind and every meal was really delicious. The view is unbelievable, you can see the volcanos and the lake, at night when the moon was full we lit candles and we had an spectacular view of the lake. Thanks a lot for all the attentions, i do recommend this place.

Tuscany in El Salvador at Lake Ilopango. Last Week of February 2015 at Dolce Vita

  • 5 of 5

Tuscany in El Salvador? That’s what it was like to stay at this magnificent villa atop a cliff overlooking sky blue waters and the greenest mountains of Lake Ilopango from all corners of this resort-like home. Three suites with their own decks and spectacular surroundings provide privacy, nature and breath-taking views. As you go down towards the heliport and the tram ride to the boating area, there is a two-bedroom one-bathroom cabin set amidst a tropical paradise. The master bedroom is grand and includes a gym, a Jacuzzi, a shower and walk in closets. A bonus hot tub sits high in a private area overlooking the best side of the lake. As you step into the indoor living area, you’ll be surrounded by cathedral ceilings and gorgeous furniture and decor. From here, you can step outside and lounge either next to the infinity pool, in it, or at the bar and perfectly appointed barbecue area. For a serious swim jump into the lake directly from the dock or from the boat. The property has cast iron balconies and gates everywhere–even to the property storage areas, and inconspicuously to the central Spanish-style courtyard and walkway to the two other suites. There are year-round flowering bougainvillea plants in all possible colors: fuschia, yellow, orange and all colors in between. The perfectly manicured gardens include pergolas and dripping walls with grape-looking vines of wisteria. The professionally equipped kitchen is a cook’s dream. But even if you love to cook, you won’t have to because María (Mari) knows every trick in the book and rumor has it that she has been trained by the best! Make arrangements ahead of time for everything you would like on your menu and María will perfectly execute. Edgar, her husband, takes care of the property, drives you anywhere: to town, to the heliport and to the tram, then goes down to get your boat ready for a sunset cruise or a perfect full moon rise. But you don’t need to go that far to observe them as you can enjoy a better view from the outdoor dining room–an unforgettable dining area that is roofed and protected (rain or shine) with arches and natural stone on every outside wall. It is the dream house by the lake with an amazing service team–a great place to swim, water ski, relax, meditate, do yoga and/or party, dine and wine and take it all in. Of course the company matters, but everything looks greener here at Dolce Vita located at La Puntona in historical Lake Ilopango–a volcanic lake of fertile, magical lands.

Easter wekk 2014 at la Dolce Vita

  • 5 of 5

This April(Easter week) (2014) We stayed at that divine property at Lake Ilopango with a group of very good friends and it is one of the most wonderful places I've ever stayed. The house is beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking, the staff and service are unbelievably perfect and professional. Maria's cooking is excellent, the other two, maid and "guardian" Edgar are very very nice people and always there for you. You couldn't ask for a more, a wonderful place and people. We felt welcome and completely relaxed. The owner, Lori, made everything easy including shopping for groceries done before we'd even arrived. We will be back and I can recommend this place to everybody.

For golfer's, the golf course is 10 minutes by boat, even the ride from the house to the course is a delight. Thank you Lori and the staff!!!!!

Truly magnificent experience!

  • 5 of 5

This March (2013) We stayed at what is Truly the Finest Property on Lake Ilopango and one of the most wonderful places I've ever stayed. We've been to all the continents, stayed in rental homes and 5 star hotels (and lots of not 5 star places too) and this home on Lake Ilopango was one of my very favourites. The house is beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking, the staff and service are unbelievably good and professional. Maria's cooking for a mere $10 a day is better than anything I can get in my home town of 400,000. You couldn't ask for a more wonderful place and people. I felt safe, welcome and completely relaxed. You can hire one of the staff to take you anywhere you want (and I'm glad we did because renting a car and doing the driving ourselves would have been a bit stressful and perhaps difficult to find the correct roads.) The drivers were gentlemen, professional, and safe drivers. The owner Lori made everything easy including arranging for a cot for our infant to having our grocery shopping done before we'd even arrived. WOW! I'm hoping we can return for another stay. I cannot recommend staying here enough. It's a hidden gem!

Everything you need is here to enjoy an amazing vacation on Lake Ilopango. There is a pontoon boat for boat rides and water sports. There is almost 80 acres of land for hiking around. The owner also has an island that you can visit for picnics. With special arrangements there is a country club near by with all kinds of water sports available, an 18 hole golf course and a restaurant. This is also a base for exploring other areas of the country. The beaches are only an hour away and you can be at the top of a volcano for lunch in only 45 minutes. The house comes with a four wheel drive vehicle and a driver to take you wherever you would like to go (additional cost). If you have interest in geological diving, this is one of the best places in the world ! You will also enjoy our organic garden which keeps fresh from the garden offerings on the table. Located between the Airport and the City of San Salvador.
