My girlfriend and I went for a few days from Guayaquil, Ecuador to Salinas, Ecuador. e took a bus and had a very good trip. We pre-booked at the Hotel Bleu. We got there and the paperwork was there and all went well checking in considering that everything was an on-line transaction. The entire staff was very young. The desk...

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...

This is a great hotel, the view is fantastic, have stayed twice and love it. Staff are very friendly, they do have the concept of service very clear. They have a restaurant with awesome and delicious food, it is like the jewel of the crown.

We were pleased with everything except couldn't help but wonder why they gave us a room where the bathroom tile had been damaged (I'll try to add my photos). Also, we and a couple of friends traveling with us all noticed the water in the shower takes a very long time to turn warm.

We got a tip from a local person to stay at this hotel and we considered it a lucky choice. It is very well located, just across a road (Malecon) to the beach and close to the centre of main activities. Though I wouldn´t give it four stars, our room was O.K., large enough, with good beds, a sitting area,...

We went to grab breakfast there. Total rip off! We ordered continental breakfast and to start with we got coffee so watered down that it looked like tea! Terrible instant coffee crap! Then they give you a toast wuth marmelade (decent) and margarin, instead of butter! Coffee was cold, juice was warm. Then 2 eggs, piece of smelly cheese and...

The hotel is just in front of the seaside, in the middle of the town. Location is excellent, very close to the beach (even for night swimming) and to restaurants, etc. We took the suite at the 15th (top) floor. A big apartment with two bedrooms (one with one king size bed, and the second with two queen size beds),...

Hotel Bleu is nicely located with large clean rooms that are comfortably arranged. What distinguishes Hotel Bleu is the people that work there. We became quite ill during out stay. The staff helped us find a clinic, the assistant manager came with us to the clinic and helped us to navigate the language differences. She stayed until we were treated....
