The location is right on the beach a short drive from Salinas. The guest room we stayed in was dirty, and the innkeeper was helpful when she was around, but overall this is just a little shabby for the price. Pool not clean, rooms worn and dirty, etc.

The property is not maintained very well. The bed in our room was old and worn-out. The sheets were thin. We had to ask for towels and when they delivered the towels, they were still damp. The shower head sprayed water all over the room when I took a shower. The kitchen is a mess and unclean. The pool was... More

Sorry about your experience. Unfortunately you arrived just before our renovations had begun. As you can tell from other peoples experience that is not the norm. I am sure if you have the oppotunity to visit us in the future, you will not recognize the place! Joel,owner More

What a magical gem! The beach is practically deserted and the sounds of the waves lull you into a state of complete and utter tranquility.

The accommodations are basic; which for... More

My friend and I were looking for what everyone else was not--a quiet coastal spot for the weekend of Carnaval. We found it at this lovely, secluded B and B perched above the ocean, with a beautiful pool, easy access to a long, sandy beach with pounding surf (and surfers!), breezy porches and balconies. The innkeeper, Susan, a transplanted American,... More

The manager bent over backwards to be of service but has two large dogs, one of which is a rescue dog and for people nervous about pit bull Rottweiler mixes, this is not the place for you. We could not get out of the car until the dogs had been corralled. The rooms are small and would suit younger surfers.... More

Thank you for your words regarding the helpfulness of our manager Susan. I would like to mention here a few of the points you noted in your review.

The Ocean HideAway is probably the most unique resort in the entire Salinas area. If you don't like mingling with hundreds of other tourists, or listen to the car alarms that seem to go off in Salinas 24 hours a day... or get over-priced activities on the main beaches of Salinas... if you seek tranquility, great food, personal service, and...

We like our guests to feel welcome here.The guest house is two stories and the second story also has our family room area with baord games and cards and a chess set and a public balcony to enjoy -- perfect for watching the sunset with that wine and cheese I mentioned.We're happy to spend time with you -- talking about living here in Ecuador, helping plan visits to the thermal baths at the Banos San Vicente, or visit the wildlife sanctuary at El Faro and have lunch with the monkeys, or drive the Ruta del Sol to Montanita, or for recommendations about the best real estate brokers (licensed, bilingual and recommended) to assist with property buying or renting.
