What a magical gem! The beach is practically deserted and the sounds of the waves lull you into a state of complete and utter tranquility. I have never slept better or meditated longer than during my all too brief stay at Susan's property in Anconcito. Susan was charming, funny and full of local information. The accommodations are basic; which for... More

My friend and I were looking for what everyone else was not--a quiet coastal spot for the weekend of Carnaval. We found it at this lovely, secluded B and B perched above the ocean, with a beautiful pool, easy access to a long, sandy beach with pounding surf (and surfers!), breezy porches and balconies. The innkeeper, Susan, a transplanted American,... More

The manager bent over backwards to be of service but has two large dogs, one of which is a rescue dog and for people nervous about pit bull Rottweiler mixes, this is not the place for you. We could not get out of the car until the dogs had been corralled. The rooms are small and would suit younger surfers.... More

Thank you for your words regarding the helpfulness of our manager Susan. I would like to mention here a few of the points you noted in your review. Our rooms are actually larger than most typical rooms in Ecuador. Beds are either doubles or queen sized, nothing small about them. The pool is quite large by almost anyone's standards and... More

On August 20, 2013, I walked onto the property with two other people with a 7 lb papillon on a leash. The manager knew I was coming with my dog but did not know I was coming with the two other people even though her guardiano was not surprised to see me at the airport with her waiting on the... More

The Ocean Hideaway is not a "pet-friendly" location and is not advertised as such on any website -- the statement of the reviewer is false. The ocean Hideaway has a strict no pet policy.

The Ocean HideAway is probably the most unique resort in the entire Salinas area. If you don't like mingling with hundreds of other tourists, or listen to the car alarms that seem to go off in Salinas 24 hours a day... or get over-priced activities on the main beaches of Salinas... if you seek tranquility, great food, personal service, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A casual beach front bed & breakfast located near the resort city of Salinas (just 20 minutes by car). We feature a serene and relaxing friendly ambiance where you can enjoy soaking in our fresh water pool overlooking the waves of the beach just below. We are directly on La Diablica with direct beach access to a great Surf and Boarding location and are proud to be hosting the team Germany for the Junior ISA competition this April. We feature free WiFi and a full American style breakfast (with organic brewed coffee and, country fresh eggs, fresh fruit and juice, and bakery fresh bread) each morning of your stay. Our rooms are ample, clean, and comfortable and all have a modern bathroom with tiled walk in shower clean modern rooms with modern full private bathrooms and tiled showers and are set up with towels, toilet paper (that can be flushed) and a full bar of soap. The guest house is a self contained unit that also features a common dining room with a communal fridge to keep all your beverages and cold (we'll take you to town to purchase what you like, no nickel and dime-ing over the price of soda and beer) and we let you use the kitchen to grab whatever you need to make a snack or cut up some fruit and cheese and borrow some glasses for your wine. We like our guests to feel welcome here.The guest house is two stories and the second story also has our family room area with baord games and cards and a chess set and a public balcony to enjoy -- perfect for watching the sunset with that wine and cheese I mentioned.We're happy to spend time with you -- talking about living here in Ecuador, helping plan visits to the thermal baths at the Banos San Vicente, or visit the wildlife sanctuary at El Faro and have lunch with the monkeys, or drive the Ruta del Sol to Montanita, or for recommendations about the best real estate brokers (licensed, bilingual and recommended) to assist with property buying or renting. And now we are easier to get to than ever! The Salinas Airport is open to commercial flights and there are two flights a week from QUITO to SALINAS and back again -- Thursday and Sunday nights on TAME.Peaceful, Tranquil, Serene. Come visit us at the Ocean Hideaway, we'd love to have you as our guest. ... more   less
