Wow !!! Where do you start? A true "JEWEL" of a find in the tiny community of Ballanita Ecuador. Very Hard to find in an otherwise desolate town. Please persevere & keep following the signs & asking cab drivers as we did. THE RESULT! MARVELOUS!!!! We were greeted like long lost Family by the Owner Yolanda & her staff. We had a Great 2nd Floor Room "ECHO" that overlooks the Pacific Ocean with its Never-ending surf/sounds! The Hotel is really a MARITIME MUSEUM! Theres a small Churchlike structure that house Memorabilia from Ship Wrecks of the 1600's & other Maritime curios, Pictures etc.....Many FOR SALE @ reasonable prices from her husband ALBERTO'S travels as a skipper around the world. We stayed an Extra night just to Browse the Museum. The Pool is at the edge of the property & its Just the "Right" Temp!
The Restaurant is another Museum of itself Full of Memorabilia from Ships the World over. The Staff Miriam Dennis & others are truly EXCEPTIONAL! Restaurant serves GREAT FOOD! We even bought 10 lobsters from some fishermen in town & brought back to the Hotel. We invited Yolanda Alberto & their visiting daughter from Spain. The Staff cooked the Lobsters Ecuadorian Style! WOW What a feast!!!! We felt like Family. If you're ever in the SALINAS area Dont MISS this "SPECIAL PLACE" We'll be back !!!!!
