I went to Salinas as a family vacation, I spent 2 nights at a cheaper hotel and decided to move to a higher class. I expected to find a nice hotel in the mid price range and this one was the best choice. The view is nice as you can tell by being in Salinas. Once ready for bed after...

This apartment hotel has all the looks – on the outside. We booked a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. We entered on a sunny day but coming into the living room thought that fog has set in, soo dirty were the sliding windows leading to an empty balcony. The living room had so sparsely furniture that one could play basketball...

My family and I were able to check in at 10:30AM. The front desk lady was nice and courteous and gave us an oceanfront suite in the 11th floor that was super spacious with two bedrooms for two adults and one child, a kitchen, a full bathroom in each room plus a half bathroom at the entrance. The living room...

Seriously go somewhere else. This hotel may have been nice at one time, but the maintenance and customer service has made this a truly poor experience. We came during the off season and were one of only 3 rooms occupied during our stay. We were placed on the 8th floor in a room on the backside of the hotel with...

Scary story - DO NOT STAY HERE We stayed at the hotel for two nights. The cost per night was approximately $200.00 USD plus tax. The room and location were okay, outdated but large and clean. The included breakfast at the restaurant next door was good. The issue we had was upon departure. We came down to check out and,...

I recently stayed at the Hotel Bleu for a single night as part of a packaged tour where the final trip destination in Ecuador was Cuenca. By the luck of the draw, I received a room with a great view of the Salinas Malecón and beach. The suite was spacious and clean and I had a good-night's sleep in what...
