About Tanya Moritz
Hi, I was born in Ecuador and my husband in New York City. I moved to New York at a young age. We met while both working for the New York City Police Department. After 20 years of service I retired with the rank of Lieutenant . We love traveling with our two children 14 and 12 years old. We purchased this condo on September 2003. We love to share our home and hope our guests have as much fun as we do when we are there.
Tanya Moritz purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Tanya Moritz chose Salinas
the condo right on the malecon with beautiful water views. Quiet location but close enough to the action.

Great location...spacious condo!
All was as expected with welcoming reception from staff .Tanya was great at communication,giving us good directions to get there by taxi from the bus terminal in Santa Elena.Unfortunately,we experienced difficulties with no hot water in the kitchen...and the refrigerator needed attention by a repairman.Tanya was available by the unit telephone,and she had the condo service people inspect our concerns.The refrigerator was repaired..hot water was still an issue but we understand that this was not a quick fix..so we adjusted!Happily we had hot water and good pressure in the shower.Tanya was most apologetic to us...and we appreciate the consideration that she promised us.We have no doubts that these concerns will be addressed as Tanya herself was to be in residence following our stay ....For future tenants,please note that drinking water is available from the staff who will deliver it to you for $2.25. We enjoyed taking the chairs and umbrella to the beach!..and the hammocks were used everyday for siestas! Happy to have a free telephone service to North America too!Jhimy,s restaurant,out the door,turn left...two blocks...GREAT place to eat!!Great prices to.The Jazz Club for an omelette is outstanding in taste and value...enjoy your stay!
Nice location. Property well kept.
Staff on site are very professional and helpful. Location is perfect. Close enough to beach and restaurants but far enough away to avoid noise. Owner Tanya was helpful and super quick to respond to questions. Overall great value and safe place to stay in Salinas
The staff members were awesome! I recommend it. You won’t regret it!
Very good location for quick access to the malecon.
Right in front of the malecon. Not in the most action area but not at the dead quiet end either. First floor is not high for a bird's eye view but high enough that people are not looking in at you as they walk by. Lots of furniture, kitchen is supplied with things like toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots etc. But we did have to wash everything before using as it seems nobody bothers washing things after using.
TV is ok and we moved some furniture around so we could sit and watch. Internet was good after a router reboot and the free calls to Canada were nice.
AC in the bedrooms but not the main area and the fully retractable windows allowed the bugs in the evening. Lighting was a bit dim especially for the kitchen in the evening.
Hot water was quick so you were not waiting for a shower. Two elevators in the building plus stairs.
Security was good with onsite supervision 24/7 and available to help if needed.
Was ready for use with new soap, towels, iron and clothes washer. The ironing board was inhabited by an ant colony. The shower worked better in the common bathroom than it did in the master bedroom.
Room for two in the master bedroom and three or maybe four in the second. I guess you could put two in the maid's quarters if you were that desperate.
We only saw one cockroach but he is not there anymore because I found him in my cookies when I got to Quito.
Overall a decent value for your money.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We truly value the opinion of our guest and apologize the we did not meet your expectations. We addressed the cleanliness issue, and we spoke with the manager and housekeeper in question. Warm regards,
Great location, view and ammenities!
This property was exactly as described and Tanya was very prompt responding to messages. The bedrooms have split A/C units, which we didn't use as with the windows open there was such a great breeze the A/C wasn't required. The balcony area has been incorporated into the living area of the unit and the glass panels slide out of the way to give an open air feeling and a great view of the ocean. It has a full kitchen which we used for some breakfasts and lunches (full size fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker). Not that we watched much TV but there is TV in the social area and in the master bedroom (we even found a couple English speaking channels), good WiFi and free phone calls to US and Canada.
This property is literally across the road from the beach (although the beach here has the small crushed shells) and a short walk down the Malecon to a sandy beach or a $1.50 cab ride to Chipipe beach which is just on the other side of the yacht club. Both of these beaches were clean. At the time of our stay the beaches were crowded on the weekend and much less crowded during the week The property has 24 hours security and a dedicated property manager. All were very friendly and helpful. Restaurants are within easy walking distance.
I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others.
The apartment was very nice, very well maintained and equipped. It was right across from the beach and what i liked most was the 24 hour security and the staff was very helpful.
