We visited Hotel Bonanza in Quito, Ecuador quite by accident. I learned that an American owned a hotel in Quito, where our plane landed at 10:00 PM. We made contact with the owner, and what a blessing that it was since neither my wife nor I speak or understand the Spanish language. The owner met us at the airport, with a sign showing our names, and waited for us to claim our bags and cleat Customs, which was quite a long wait as a flight from Atlanta and Miami arrived at the same time. He helped us with our bags, drove us to his hotel in his car, had refreshments waiting, and we talked some that night before bed. The room was very comfortable, with a fantastic mattress. I awoke the next morning to the smell of fantastic coffee, and could not wait to shower and dress, in order to have the best coffee in Ecuador. His wife, Nora goes out to a nearby bakery every morning for fresh made rolls, then she made a fantastic breakfast, with eggs cooked to order. Quito was not our destination city, but only a layover, and again, we were taken back to the airport, helped with our bags, and escorted to the ticket counter for our connecting flight to another city.
Our schedule was to have only a short layover in Quito on our return, but we decided to leave a day earlier, in order to stay an extra day in Quito and Hotel Bonanza. Our Travel agent could not reschedule our return flight, I could not change them, but Nora spoke their language in more ways than one, and was able to reschedule our commuter flight a day earlier, so that we couls spend more time in Quito and Hotel Bonanza. I am 68 years old, and have never liked a hotel enough to change travel plans in order to stay at any hotel until just last week.
