The Experience

"Save the Whales", campaign was the beginning of the environmental movement as we know it. The song of the Humpback Whale is an experience that inspires us to want to do better and reduce our impacts on our beautiful blue planet. Today, based on all the challenges of the Climate Emergency a more apt slogan might be, "Save the Humans"! The Humpback Whale still have a message to share with us. Help us share that message with our guests.

It was a life changing / super spiritual experience!!! I'm beyond grateful for having the chance to seeing Whales, and being fully present while enjoying their company. The hotel crew is amazing and caring, also the food is sooo good.... Mil gracias the hotel!!!

Great hotel and great people! I will recommend to go there in the high season- the whale season. the facility is probably much better then most of the hostel you've stayed in before, the stuff and the manager are awesome and the food is great. some important notes- 1. be ready to speak only Spanish. 2. most of the backpackers are staying in El Valle so take advantage of your free time and go there. 3. it could be very rainy! 4. I don't recommend to go there before the high season, there is no much to help with

La experiencia fue sorprendente la principal actividad claramente es el avistamiento, lo que permite conocer conceptos importantes de ellas para brindar a los turistas una mejor experiencia más la meditación que es muy vital para contar con una grandiosa energía y poder establecer una conexión con las ballenas, el staff, el Sr Allen son grandiosas personas me permitieron vivir una agradable experiencia en Bahia Solano, estoy seguro de que regresaré a Hostal el hotel. Ahahah y la comida super rica.

Fue una experiencia inolvidable, la gente, el hotel y la playa fueron una recarga de energía, lo más lindo de la experiencia fue ver las ballenas junto a los delfines y compartir con gente que no conocías. Cumplieron totalmente con todo lo descrito en lo que ofrecen. Muy agradecida con Allen y sus hijos que son unas personas maravillosas y todo su personal en especial Sebastián,su administrador que nos enseño, nos llevó a conocer diferentes lugares y en cada inquietud nos colaboraba. Sin duda deben vivir estar grata experiencia y conocer el maravilloso hotel.
