My family and I were able to check in at 10:30AM. The front desk lady was nice and courteous and gave us an oceanfront suite in the 11th floor that was super spacious with two bedrooms for two adults and one child, a kitchen, a full bathroom in each room plus a half bathroom at the entrance. The living room... More

Seriously go somewhere else. This hotel may have been nice at one time, but the maintenance and customer service has made this a truly poor experience. We came during the off season and were one of only 3 rooms occupied during our stay. We were placed on the 8th floor in a room on the backside of the hotel with... More

Food service as well as hotel service were outstanding, all decorated with that special touch. There is a cafeteria next to the hotel were you can have any kind of seafood typical dishes like Ceviches and more. Delish..!!! You are just across... More

Scary story - DO NOT STAY HERE We stayed at the hotel for two nights. The cost per night was approximately $200.00 USD plus tax. The room and location were okay, outdated but large and clean. The included breakfast at the restaurant next door was good. The issue we had was upon departure. We came down to check out and,... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Bleu for a single night as part of a packaged tour where the final trip destination in Ecuador was Cuenca. By the luck of the draw, I received a room with a great view of the Salinas Malecón and beach. The suite was spacious and clean and I had a good-night's sleep in what... More

The bedroom is very nice and clean. That´s it. It is well located also, but the hotel itself does not offer anything special to make it worth the price of 99US$. The restaurant were I had breakfast was also ok, but no reason to go back. I had higher expectations because of the price, but I was actually disappointed and... More

We chose this hotel based on other reviews. Our room was okay, clean, quite large and quiet. We noticed other rooms had small fridges and did request one on our second day. The restaurant is less than average. We only had one breakfast which was included in the hotel fee. Our second day we went elsewhere for breakfast. I think... More
