We’re been going to La Hola’s on Costa Del Sol in El for 8 years now. Whenever we’re in town we try to get in a beach day or 2 and there’s no place better than La Hola Beto’s for our beach fix. The beach...on Costa Del Sol is 100 yards wide with a slight slope equating to an ebb tide with an almost flat, firm surface. We’ve seen land sailers speed by, turtle hatchery releases and baby horses galloping on this beach. Love grabbing one of the many beach-side tables with palm frond umbrellas and a sun bed. Sit back and watch the pelicans soar at wave crest height, drink ice cold beer from your bucket and enjoy gourmet quality seafood dishes. We often grab a ceviche & later a shrimp or lobster pizza. My kids from Indiana love this place too. Never a bad experience have we had....sorry for the delay in reviewing this wonderful little slice of beach front heaven.More

We stayed at Costa del Sol and had 3 meals a day at La Hola. I couldn't say more than "exquisit" fresh sea food!! All other dishes were fantastic, great prices, amazing service by the entire service staff, including bar tenders. Please tip well!! They...receive you with a smile, so polite and courteous. Weekends are very busy, but you won't mind the wait with some delicious drinks and the best sunset in the world. Their Piña Coladas are amazing! Thanks for treating us so well!More

At first glance, La Hola Beto’s appears to be an upscale beachfront resort. The setting is ideal with nice sand on the beach, shaded tables, palm trees, sun beds, etc. As you get close up, you’ll notice that those incredible looking sun beds are weather...stained, there’s holes in the upholstery, and they’re basically falling apart. This holds true for everything else... it all looks fancy from afar but is very much showing wear upon closer inspection. The next shock you’ll get is how high the prices are.... they’re unbelievably high! We stayed on the beach at the restaurant for a few hours. We had morning coffees to starts, followed by snacks and then our family of 4 shared the paella plate for lunch. The food was all very good. I’m sure it’s not worth what they’re charging, but it’s good. The service was average. Our server did the minimum required but nothing more. He was difficult to find when we needed him and he wasn’t especially friendly either. We enjoyed our time there but there are definitely improvements to be made.More

We were staying in Costa del Sol for a holiday, heard of this restaurant so, we went for an early supper and drinks during the sunset. There is nothing really special about it apart from the fact you can have a few drinks on a...bed, on the beach. That was nice. It is not a fancy place, but they pretend to be one. Food is really expensive. We had the paella which I thought was the best paella in El Salvador. Even better than some paellas in actual Spain. Service is alright. Not friendly but, they did their job. There is nothing really special about this place, to be honest. It is just average. If you go though, try the paella. Highly recommended.More

The place is nice, and the food is good. Bad service, this restaurant caters to the Hotel next door and gives them priority for service. Under staff

The restaurant is right on the beach. Great views, nice furniture and all the facilities are impecable. I visited for an afternoon and it was perfect. The menu is extensive and diverse. Good drinks selection and very professional service. I wanted to go in the...water and then a long walk and the waiter kept an eye on my stuff. When I came back I was able to use the changing facilities and have a drink back at my table. I highly recommend the restaurant and the beach, which is one of the few in the area that is not a surfers beach.More

Beautiful place. However, you have to arrive very early if you want to grab one of the tables by the beach. The food is good. If you order ceviches, oysters or any cold food, it'll be served quickly. If you order anything else in the...menu, it can be a 2 hour wait for your meal. Also, the restrooms are really filthy. There's no water to flush the toilet!More

I think they are. You would just have to be careful and have a very well-trained pet as the restaurant is right on the beach. You wouldn't want your pet to get lost!
