You can watch the whales jumping from this fabulous and rustic charming hotel on the cliff. It is like staying in a living nautical museum.
Yolanda, the captain and his staff are very helpful and friendly. We felt very welcome and enjoyed many personal attentions from them.
The food (every day) and entertainment on Saturday nights (not every Saturday though) is very nice.
If you're looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay, away from all the noise and right in front of the ocean, connected to nature, this is it! The endless pool offers a great refreshing feeling after a walk on the beach. The Wifi is very good and make sure to take a look in the museum. The entrance is free and shows you a combination of authentic relics from the 1654 CAPITANA and some artisanal uses of maritime artifacts

Room Tip: My favorite room is the PAGODA. A private bungalow on the beach... An amazing way of staying close to the water. Best stay EVER

This was the third time visiting this fantastic hideaway outside of Salinas. The first time we came an Ecuadorian friend brought us and introduced us to the owner and owner's son. We only had beers and took many photos. There is so much to see at this place. It is better than 95% of the museums I've been to around the world. The next two times we took friends that were visiting Ecuador and they were amazed with the number of items/relics from the sea and pirate type stuff to see. The food was great and staff super attentive. Most spoke English so that helped us since our Spanish isn't what it should be. The view of the ocean from the cliff where the hotel/restaurant/museum is located is almost as good as any in Ecuador. I will definitely be back when some more friends come to visit us.

We ate at the restaurant. The owner suggested the oyster to start and we were amazed! Baked in the shell with cheese and other quality ingredients! Then I had the Sea Bass, which was wonderful. The service was wonder also...the owner showed us around and treated us like old friends! We can not wait to visit Ecuador again to visit this place!

We stopped here for lunch one day while on vacation in Salinas. It's a little out of the way, but well worth the trip. The place was so charming and the view from the deck where we ate was beautiful. Inside the restaurant is a chock full of every imaginable relic from the sea, our kids loved exploring every inch of it. The food was good, the beer was cold and the service was great. We would definitely return, next time to book a room and swim in the pool.

Only went there to go surfing. Paying the entrance you get a free water and can take a shower and asking leave your bags with the staff. The beach is also accessible entering not through the hotel. But for me it was definitely worth the $2.
You can enjoy a really stunning view and have a drink. Food at the hotel is overpriced though.
