Our Personal Comment
Hotel El Sapo Dorado is a real beauty! The wooden cabins are spread on a wide area, surrounded by trees, gardens, and the wind of tranquility. During morning time the birds will wake you up to their chanting. Make sure when reserving with Hotel El Sapo Dorado to ask for the cabins with the view to the Gulf! Thumbs up for this majestic hotel!
