This hotel was a welcome surprise after a very late arrival from Miami before the start of a week-long Galapagos cruise. The front desk staff and concierge were quick to get us in our room and the security people made us feel safe at such a late hour.
The room was very spacious with an extremely comfortable bed, soft pillows, and a nice robe and paper slippers.
We stayed for the day in Guayaquil and took advantage of the central location of this hotel. It is a good walk from the hotel down to the Malecon 2000, but it is straight down Avenida 9 de Octubre so no chance of getting lost in such a bustling city. And I do mean bustling!!
The breakfast buffet was very good with an extensive selection of anything I could possibly want. The coffee shop/bakery located off the lobby has very good salads, sandwiches, and baked goods for a quick lunch or light dinner. We ate dinner one night at La Fondue, the Swiss Fondue restaurant kind of hidden down a hallway from the lobby. We were pleasantly surprised with the meal, wine, and service. Upon our return from the Galapagos cruise, we stayed again at this hotel and had dinner in the cafe (where breakfast is served). It was, again, very good with excellent service and meal choices. Normally we would have ventured out for dinner but most of the local restaurants did not start serving until 7 pm, and we were too tired from our travels to wait that long. I would highly recommend any of the hotel restaurants.
There is an outdoor pool which looked very inviting if the weather had cooperated. And there is also a spa, which our friends used and said the massage services were fantastic and very reasonable.
