Our host Cecilia could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. She made my family of four feel so welcome, and gave us perfect suggestions for day trips and local restaurants. Great place, great view, great time. Within easy day trip distance via Ruta del Sol of Ayangue and Montanita.

I attended a wedding at this hotel at the end of January 2017. The rooms had been exclusively reserved for the guests of the wedding (I stayed in room 2). The location was perfect; the ceremony and reception was all held on hotel's poolside area. I absolutely loved the layout of the hotel. The rooms are roomy and clean with...

I stumbled on this hotel when searching the internet; this hotel provides a wonderful, peaceful retreat. The hotel exceeded our expectations at every level. The garden and ocean view were amazing whether sitting near the pool or viewing from the room. The room felt spacious and had a cathedral ceiling. I loved the decor of the room and bathroom. The...

We did struggle to find this oasis and most travellers would be put off by the surrounding areas which In a few years will undoubtably have changed for the better. It was our first stay on our trip up the coast and we spent two nights here The only negative was the local dogs who can create at night but...

If you want a retreat style getaway, this is an ideal location. Lots of attention is put on the garden. It's beautifully done and very pleasant to the eyes. Added attractions are the 4 beautiful parrots and the love birds. And let's not forget the 3 small well behaved dogs (Luna, Saphie and the boss Bruno). There is also a...

Gorgeous grounds, the hostess is an interior decorator and the rooms are beautifully done in an international style. The spot is located way out of town, you will need lots of taxi rides for lunch, dinner, shopping. Make sure you establish meal and transportation prices ahead of time : we had a lovely lunch the second day which was charged...

This is our second stay in Salinas in this breathtaking hotel. The owner is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to help you with all your needs.

“rooms are pretty much the same, overall it depends whether you like to hear the parrots a little more over night or not. and if you like to socialize a little bit try picking a room near the bottom as the owners sometimes are near and make for a really pleasurable time as they play the guitar have stories to tell and occasionally offer a few soft drinks, but again remember they are not always present.”
