Hotel del Parque Guayaquil
This restored 19th-century palace in the charming metropolis of Guayaquil is part of the Relais & Chateaux association. The name reflects the essence: the hotel is located on the territory of the Historical Park - a conserved corner of old Guayaquil, surrounded by tropical greenery.
- Restored 19th century building
- Tropical oasis in the city center
- Private garden: coffee, cocoa trees and medicinal Ecuadorian herbs
The spacious rooms provide a great place to sleep on wide beds, and the abundance of space, light and tropical greenery creates a festive mood.
In addition to the hotel, there is a Cocoa and Chocolate Museum in the park, where you can see how chocolate is made, literally from bean to bar, that is, from cocoa beans, which collected directly on site, to the finished tiles. There is also a small zoo where parrots, flamingos and monkeys walk without enclosures wherever they please: you will have breakfast in the garden every morning while listening to their lively conversations.
The gastronomic restaurant Casa Julian occupies a separate mansion with an elegant gallery in colonial style. It serves traditional Ecuadorian cuisine with a modern twist: hearty, soulful and incredibly tasty. You can complete your meal with tea made from aromatic medicinal herbs collected in the park.
