What a place for a romantic getaway. We stayed at El Retiro which was a honey moon place to go. But the prices were not to much that we couldn't afford because Olon Ecuador is so much less expensive than grandiose cities in US. We had a hotub/jacuzzi in our room. Our room overlooked the Pacific ocean and the hillside at the same time. The dinner we had was as private as you could get. We had the entire dining room to ourselves right in front of their fish tank.
The dinner was superb. I had a wonderful piece of Corvina, which is a local fish in the South America Countries, with a peanut sauce on it and we had platanos served two different ways. My favorite style was with the honey. I guess I like my Platanos sweet rather than salty. I suppose it is personal preference, even though they are generally served or prepared with salt or deep fried and nude.
We went swimming in the evening at their swimming pool tool. It seemed like we were the only people staying there. I can't wait to go back again!!!!
