Description

Hotel del Parque is set within a meticulously restored 19th Century building in the heart of Guayaquil's tropical Parque Historico. A short drive from Guayaquil airport, Hotel del Parque is a perfect stopover on route to the Galapagos Islands.

One of the only boutique hotels to be found in the bustling Ecuadorian port city of Guayaquil, Hotel del Parque occupies a charming plot within the tropical Parque Historico, overlooking the Daule River and surrounded by a jungle of beautiful botanical gardens. Vibrant flora creates an idyllic setting and leads the way to the park's wildlife refuge which houses spider monkeys, iguanas, harpy eagles, macaws and hummingbirds.

This 19th century building has been meticulously restored to provide a luxurious hotel experience on mainland Ecuador, ideal for a stay either before or after a stint of exploration in the enchanting Galapagos Islands. The former hospice surrounds picturesque patios with fountains, flowers and birds bringing elements of the tropical surroundings to the interior, which is also reflected in the decor. Contemporary furniture and modern technology sit alongside antique pieces and botanical artwork.

Facilities include a restaurant which overlooks the river, serving up delicious Ecuadorian fare with a sophisticated and modern twist. Rich seafood and the freshest locally sourced fruits and vegetables combine to make a mouthwatering menu. Massages can also be arranged in the building's bell tower, a perfect post-cruise treat!
