Very nice oceanfront condo

Excellent large oceanfront condo with 360 degree ocean views. It was a clean well cared for property. We would like to stay there again when we return to Salinas. Excellent location on the Malecon, easy walk to all the restaurants and shops.

Salinas Condo Rental

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in Rick's condo for eight nights. It was our first visit to Ecuador and we loved it. The condo was more than comfortable and very well equipped. We cooked most of our meals in the condo because of dietary issues. The condo was in a perfect location and the view was amazing. All in all it was a perfect vacation and we would love to go back to Salinas and also explore more of the country. I would not hesitate to rent Rick's condo again and would gladly recommend it to others.

Condo was just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Rick's condo was just as advertised. Perfect location on 10th floor in the center of the Malecon. Furnishings were excellent and the condo very comfortable. The sound of the waves and surf were extremely soothing. Activities on the water were abundant and very affordable. Surrounding restaurants are numerous but make sure you do your research to insure you enjoy your meals. Rick's condo is very functional for making your own meals as well. All in all, quite a great and functional place for an awesome Salinas Ecuador vacation

Amazing rental, location and price!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental, the views were amazing and it had everything you could possibly need. We were in the heart of the Malecon near restaurants, markets and beach. Our host was extremely accommodating and made sure our stay was pleasant. The condo staff was very helpful. If you want to take in the full Salinas experience with top of the line comfort you need not look any further. The price was great and all the little amenities made our extended stay perfect. (i.e. hot water, high speed wifi, beautiful ocean breeze, washer & dryer, 4 full baths) We would highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Salinas.
