We were pleased with everything except couldn't help but wonder why they gave us a room where the bathroom tile had been damaged (I'll try to add my photos). Also, we and a couple of friends traveling with us all noticed the water in the shower takes a very long time to turn warm.

We got a tip from a local person to stay at this hotel and we considered it a lucky choice. It is very well located, just across a road (Malecon) to the beach and close to the centre of main activities. Though I wouldn´t give it four stars, our room was O.K., large enough, with good beds, a sitting area,... More

We went to grab breakfast there. Total rip off! We ordered continental breakfast and to start with we got coffee so watered down that it looked like tea! Terrible instant coffee crap! Then they give you a toast wuth marmelade (decent) and margarin, instead of butter! Coffee was cold, juice was warm. Then 2 eggs, piece of smelly cheese and... More

The hotel is just in front of the seaside, in the middle of the town. Location is excellent, very close to the beach (even for night swimming) and to restaurants, etc. We took the suite at the 15th (top) floor. A big apartment with two bedrooms (one with one king size bed, and the second with two queen size beds),... More

Hotel Bleu is nicely located with large clean rooms that are comfortably arranged. What distinguishes Hotel Bleu is the people that work there. We became quite ill during out stay. The staff helped us find a clinic, the assistant manager came with us to the clinic and helped us to navigate the language differences. She stayed until we were treated.... More

3 friends and I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on a Friday night. Unfortunately, what we did not know before check in was that there was a disco two blocks away which would pump loud music until the wee hours of the night making sleep impossible until the disco closed. Additionally and more importantly, we had no hot water... More

This Hotel was booked for us by an Ecuadorian Travel Agent. We were looking for a spot to spend 3 days sunbathing and relaxing. In October. Apparently at this time of year, the sun does not shine here. It was always overcast, but the temperature was a perfect 20 - 24 degrees the whole time. The Hotel itself - Nice... More

If you're looking for a hotel in Salinas, Edcuador, I suggest not staying at this one. The check-in was painfully slow. The reception person was less than helpful in getting information on local restaurants and shopping. The rooms are large but there was no hot water and the furnishing were dated and worn. No internet in the room. Clearly not... More
