On our annual trip to Ecuador, we decided to base ourselves in Salinas, a resort town about 1½ hours from Guayaquil. We were in Salinas for only 1 night last year and really loved the whole ambiance of the town, esp. the Malecon, and felt that it had all the comforts and conveniences of a European coastal town. The beach is beautiful and has all kinds of water sports to keep the kids happy, and the sand is great for sandcastles and shell hunting. Also, Malecon offers a great selection of shops and restaurants.
So, we were absolutely thrilled to find this beautiful condo right across from the beach – you literally have to just walk out the door! The apartment is located in a newly built building, so new that you can still smell the fresh coat of paint, and it offers top of the line amenities not only in the apartment but also in the common areas, such as a pool, Jacuzzis and 2 saunas. It was like staying at a 5-star hotel but with all the convenience of being in your own home!
Traveling as a family, we couldn’t have asked for a better accommodation or a more ideal location from where we could do day trips along the Pacific coast.
Also, the owners of the condo were so nice and friendly and gave us great tips on traveling in the area. The property was easy to book through Flipkey, and the owners were great about getting back to us with a response and in answering all our questions.
