Alongside a state-of-the-art fitness centre, the heated rooftop pool offers gorgeous city views, with food and drinks available to order, as well as a hot tub which you can privately reserve. There’s also a spa that's perfect after long sightseeing days, offering a sauna and steam as well as myriad signature treatments.

Enjoy a sundowner at the rooftop bar terrace before you sample the delights of the onsite restaurant, host to a daily breakfast buffet – think eggs made-to-order, meats, ceviche, homemade juices and much more. Excellent Ecuadorian and international dishes are served come evening, using organic ingredients fresh from the market alongside a fabulous South American wine list – taken al fresco on the waterfront terrace. Finish it all with a cocktail at the stylish Numa Bar. Naturally, there’s 24-hour room service if you'd rather dine from the comfort of your room.

With temperatures in Guayaquil rarely dropping below 30 degrees year-round, you could simply relax by the pool, but it's well worth heading out to explore. Just moments from all the city's delights, you're well-placed for a stroll along the famed Malecon 2000, known as the 'Simon Bolivar promenade' that runs along the Guayas River. Then, don't miss Santa Ana Hill’s art galleries and tiny cafes, home to the iconic Santa Ana chapel and lighthouse for panoramic city views, as well as the colourful houses of the Las Penas neighbourhood.
