Excellent Hotel

“Beautiful gardens and pool. Had the hotel to ourselves as low season. So got personal service which was excellent. Also due to my wife falling ill staff went the extra mile to look after her. Breakfast was good. Also Staff organised take out delivery for us. Views were stunning as right on the beach. Rooms were clean and very comfortable.”

Great Experience in Salinas

“This hotel right on the water has everything that you need. the rooms feature air conditioning, plenty of places to put your luggage, a waste basket (not common in Ecuador), and pleasant decor. The owner is friendly and helpful. She even served me ice cream when out takeout dessert was forgotten in our dinner order! There is a pool and place to sit in the shade. Breakfast is served outside and is tasty. I would definitely stay here again.”

Out of the 17 hotels we stayed at in 4 South American countries this was number 1 or 2, the other being in Patagonia.

“The owner was really great, making sure we were pleased and had what we wanted. The view and closeness to the sea and waves couldn’t have been better. We were able to upgrade…”
