Sumptuous new classic property in the leafy waterfront Parque Histórico, Guayaquil.

The Hotel Parque (opened 2017) is the fruition of a restoration project undertaken by the prestigious hotel chain Oro Verde. The building, acquired some decades ago, was formerly a hospice, and is located in the waterfront Parque Histórico, a leafy protected area which is a refuge for wildlife and which also has various buildings dating back to the era of the Spanish Empire.

This colonial history is reflected in the sumptuous décor of this luxurious, nostalgic property, but the design is also sympathetic to the age of the main building: it was constructed in the republican era of the late 1890s, and rooms have many republican French-style details. There are 44 huge, romantic guest rooms with lofty ceilings, massive bathrooms purveying a real sense of light and space. There has been no expense spared on the furnishings and fittings. Gastronomy is taken seriously here and the restaurant offers fine dining.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: The trek up the Chimborazo with mountaineering legend will live with us forever!!

    TT, Bolton
  • We had a wonderful time… we thought the guides we had were among the best we have known anywhere; we went for the Galápagos and would admit to mainland Ecuador being a bit of an “add on”, but we thought it was fabulous and would return - Quito was so much better than we expected.

  • Hard to pick one highlight when there were so many superlatives. The scenery in Ecuador was spectacular. The Devil's Nose train ride was great fun. Snorkelling with sea turtles, penguins, sea lions and marine iguanas in the Galapagos was simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g !

    JB, Newcastle
  • Most memorable experience: "Where to start? Huge evening skies on the Napo river, pulling out of Chimbacalle station on the Tren Crucero in a cacophony of whistling and hooting; the Devil's nose, swimming with penguins, sharks and sea lions. The moment on the Tren Crucero when our guide wanted to reassure us, You may have heard that Cotopaxi has been erupting recently, don't worry, it's all under control. The library in the Hacienda Zuleta; Firefly larvae in the dark on Limoncocha; smoking a cigar in the garden of Hacienda La Cienega - its's hard to keep a cigar alight in the thin Andean air, but you can pretend to be Alaxander von Humbolt."

    DH, Portsmouth
  • Ecuador is a wonderful country with much to see and do so often overlooked by those seeking to visit South America and that I now know is a big mistake.
