Ended our two week trip to Ecuador with two days at the Hotel Amira. Very pleasant and clean small hotel with a very friendly owner. Nice pool, great breakfast and wireless internet in lobby and at pool. One block off the beach. The more touristy each is a short walk away.

Just had an overnight in low season. I can not imagine how this experience could be in high season. Just one tip: the air conditioner's filter tube was set directly in the shower.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back. Too much street noise in the front.

This is one of the best and most reasonable places to stay in Salinas. $80/per day for 2 people which includes breakfast. The breakfast is plentiful and very good. Basically Fressh fruit, Eggs, Roll, Coffee and Juice. The place has WiFi in the lobby area. You can typically get about 4-7 channels of English shows on the TV. The showers use the "shock showers" where the heating element is in the shower head (Trick to get warm water is not to put the water on full blast and you will get a nice warm shower) The owner of the hotel speaks English but the staff is very iffy with their English. The rooms are very clean and basic and the beds are comfortable. This area is normally pretty quiet as it is not on the beach boardwalk area but in the morning the trucks and cars coming from the military base gets a little loud. We stayed there for 3 days and would stay there again. If this place is booked then go to Hostal Aqui "Will's Place" at 10 Street and Malecon

We stayed in the Amira Hotel for one night in March, 2010. The hotel is charming with beautiful flowers surrounding the perimeter and a lovely pool. I think it was a private home at one time. Our room was large with 2 small balconies and a vaulted ceiling. We loved the setting but there was no internet in the room and no safe. It is not on the beach but the location is quiet. Our friends were staying in the Barcelo, so we moved there for 2 nights. Bad move! The Barcelo is just another big hotel, 4 times the cost and the pool closes at 7pm! The Amira is a much better choice.
