WOW....What a trip of a lifetime. We flew to Guayaquil Ecuador and stayed two nights at the Hotel Oro Verde ( a Leading Hotel of the World.) I prepaid and received an amazing low price for a junior suite. WOW Again....Huge SUITE in the new wing. We enjoyed our visit in the city and loved walking Malecon 2000 and visiting Cerro Santa Anna. There was so much written about safety yet we never experienced any type of scary situation. We even went to a neighborhood fruit/empanada local hang out
No matter how often we travel, no matter where we go, regardless of the level of luxury accommodations and culinary extravagances available.....
We just feel compelled to find a pizza joint (which is not always easy in some destinations) and dig right into a really well done pie!

Returning for a two night stay, a year later, we noticed some changes with members of the management team, but the property remains an affiliation with Benchmark Hospitality. We felt the property continues to improve the overall guest experience.
As was the case last year, we requested and received an oceanfront cabana suite (#112).....our choice, since we prefer direct access to a ground level covered patio as opposed to the terraces offered on the upper floors. The ground floor

Just returned from a wonderful holiday to Argentina. Flew AA via Santiago to Mendoza. (used Admirals Club pass in Miami and Santiago and was quite pleased. Great relaxation, drink, showers, and snacks.)
We went to Chacras de Coria (had stayed there in January and loved the location). Stayed at Finca Adalgisa. This property is a small working vineyard. We loved it! We enjoyed tapas and wine in the vineyards each evening.. (included in your price!) (please LL-add this property!)
Just returned from a 30th anniversary trip to Peru. Highly recommend the Mira Flores Park Hotel in Lima and the Monastaria Hotel in Cuzco. Both are Orient Express hotels and provide phenomenal service by a staff who make you feel at home. I also suggest that you may wish to spend the extra money and take the Hiram Bingham Orient Express train from Cuzco to Machu Picchu. It is all inclusive with meals, bus to and from Machu Picchu and a guide. Its expensive, but worth it.
