My husband researched our trip beforehand and started communicating with Patricio at the Casa Grande. Bahia was the last stop on 6 weeks in Ecuador and we were blown away by the warmth and charm of this lovely home when we were welcomed into the hotel right by the Pacific Ocean. The rooms are very comfortable but what sets this hotel apart is the warmth and charm of the people you interact with. Patricio, his family and staff, went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one with fine service at the hotel, breakfasts that were fit for a king (cooking done by Mercedes who I wanted to take home with me) and that varied every day, and as the former Minister for Tourism on the Coast, detailed information and tours to the most amazing spots in the area. If you were looking for the unique experience, the family also runs Chirije, an Eco tourist hotel right on the Pacific Ocean. This is the real feel of Bahia and a chance to learn about the history of the area. We miss them already.
