Hotel del Parque, Guayaquil

Hotel del Parque is a sophisticated boutique hotel set on the banks of Guayaquil’s Rio Daule in an 1890s former Catholic hospice complete with original architectural features including internal courtyards, an ornate chapel and bell tower.

Guayaquil might be known to travellers as a port-stop en route to the Galápagos, but the opening of the chic Hotel del Parque puts this stopover city firmly on the map. What was once a 19th-century Catholic hospice is now a luxurious, waterfront boutique hotel. All interiors are cool and fresh, inspired by the tropical surroundings. The 44 guest rooms are light, airy and decorated in go-to boutique hotel shades of grey, white and yellow. Botanic themes dominate and Ecuadorian artworks hang on the walls. The hotel’s restaurant offers rich seafood and delicious dishes inspired by local ingredients.

The historic wooden beamed bell tower provides the perfect setting for a spa treatment. Guests can indulge in a traditional afternoon tea infused with herbs fresh from the garden. For chocolate-lovers, head to the grounds of the park to seek out cacao pods, watch as they are turned into chocolate. You can sample the produce, obviously.

Why we like it

  • The hotel’s historic building is located within Parque Historico, a luscious tropical park
  • Enjoy a unique spa experience in the bell tower
