“First Trip to Salinas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I booked our stay based on reviews I had read at Trip Advisor. The place had to be the best deal in town and the room charge included a hot breakfast with eggs, coffee and juice. The staff was friendly and always helpful when needed. The location was great being located next to a strip center with a pharmacy and a great grocery store we frequented. A taxi ride to the beach was $2 though we usually walked and took in the scenes. The hotel was clean and our room was spacious with a flat screen television and plenty of hot water. The staff lined us up with an English speaking tour guide which made our stay that much more enjoyable. We would highly recommend the Caridi and we hope to return later this year.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

We stayed in this hotel for three nights during our visit to Salinas. As other reviewers have noted, the hotel is not right on the Malecon, or close to a nice beach, so you'll have to take a taxi, or a bus, to get into town. Both can easily be hailed right in front of the hotel. The hotel is spacious, clean, and very, very affordable. The showers were hot (sometimes a rarity in Ecuador!) and the beds were comfy. Be sure to request a room on the back of the hotel so you're not facing street noise from the main road. The staff was friendly, and breakfast was good. We loved being next to the Super Maxi as we could easily stock up on beer and water- what else do you need at the beach? :)

I'm not sure how long it took the other reviewer to walk to the Malecon, but I don't think you'll do that if you stay here unless you're a marathon speed walker. That being said, I took a taxi to the beach for $2 and it was easy! Everyone was nice to this greeneyed and they make you breaky when you go downstairs in the morning.

Jorge is the best part of this hotel, I miss him! Having Supermaxi right next door isn't so bad either :) Yum!

My mother and I have come down to Salinas for a few days and chose to stay at Hotel Caridi. We were very pleased with how clean the room and entire hotel was. There is a lovely view of the ocean from the large open hallways and some rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful and it is conveniently located by a grocery store and mini shopping mall where you will find all you could need. No need to worry about communication there as the owner speaks English and Italian as well as Spanish. An american breakfast is served as part of the price of the room. Buses pass right in front so you can get around easily for a mere 25 cents. A taxi can also take you to anywhere around town for only a dollar or two. All in all, a very comfortable stay and well worth the price.

The people that own the hotel are wonderful Ecuadorian Canadians who are very friendly and hospitable. Rooms and maid services are excellent for the price I paid(bargain!), with plenty of soap, shampoo and towels. Rooms are exceptionally clean; showers are great with plenty of hot water. Plus wi-if.
A popular supermarket is next door, along with a pharmacy and a great coffee shop for those who need that USA cup of java, along with other shops.
It is not near the Malecon/La Playa area, but can easily be reached by a 25 Cent bus ride or via taxi.
