Royal Decameron Punta Centinela - All Inclusive

Nice gateway if you want a local feel

I have visited 29 different countries and have stayed at a wide range of places ranging from a 5 star hotel to a cheap hostal. Royal Decameron in Punta Centinela, Ecuador will give you a local feel, but with the amenities of an all inclusive. For being a hotel chain they were able to connect their services with the local atmosphere; which is what I look for when I travel. That being said here are some noticeable remarks regarding this establishment: 1) Compared to hotel chains it is smaller. To me this is good because all the hotel has to offer is close, but it also reduces the amount of things they can offer you. Ex. two signature restaurants Vs 4-5 at bigger hotels. 2) This hotel is mainly visited by national tourists, and the majority of the international tourists are from the Spanish neighboring countries. In other words, most staff members only speak Spanish making it difficult for non-Spanish speakers to communicate. For example, I speak Spanish but my wife does not making it very hard for her. 3) I read about the "Native Rudeness" in other reviews, but went in with an open mind. If you are not used to butting in front of people in line for food, you will never eat. It is sad, but I also experienced this during my local travels within the country. 4) Customer service is not what western Europeans, and north Americans are used too. Do not get me wrong, they were not rude but definitely do not go the extra mile even if you are a generous tipper. Yet, I loved it!!

Greenfield's Hotel

Great hotel. Friendly and attentive staff.

Nothing short of excellent. Staff was friendly and attentive. Breakfast was simple but more than generous and included in our stay. Close to the malecon but far enough away to be quiet. Gated parking gave a tangible sense of security. I would book again with complete confidence.

Barceló Salinas

overall

Overall a nice hotel. The activities that the hotel offers need to be revamped and updated. Focus on cleanliness of both pools and rooms could use attention. Food was mostly good, some items overcooked and shortages on food during slow season should not be acceptable. Location is great!
