We had a wonderful three day stay at La Tortuga. We were in one of the $50 suites which are set in a nice quiet and private location a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The room was large, clean and comfortable with a really great bathroom and shower. Outside was a red-brick private patio which was lovely to... More

First row on the beautiful beach ayampe has to offer, i had a great time in la tortuga. Amazing view, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I loved the food, the service, the pool and ping pong table. Go and check it out!

This was by far the worst place my study group stayed at. My room was infested with spiders and cockroaches. My shower was disgusting. Housekeeping did not clean it the next day at all. The food they had was terrible and the kitchen closed way before it should have and couldn't make me food that I wasn't allergic to. A... More

I stayed in Ayampe for a week & visited here most days. Great wifi & lovely view from upstairs over an amazing beach. Food average, far better places to eat (fishburgers up the other end of the beach are YUM) but nice for an afternoon beer 👍

Pegged right next to the jungle, this spot is amazing for swimming, surfing, sunsets and a few other creative activities. Recommend renting a scooter in Motañita and taking the 30something minute ride through the jungle. Careful - lots of curves and distractions.

I've been traveling to Ayampe since 2007 and I have got to say, this is the first time I felt mistreated! A couple of friends and I arrive at Tortuga around 10pm. We were starving because we drove 3 hours from Guayaquil. Since we made reservations for a dinner via e-mail we were more than pleased to arrive at Tortuga,... More

I discovered Cabanas la Tortuga almost by accident, but I had been advised by a hotel owner where I had stayed before in Puerto Lopez to check out Ayampe....the best advice ever, as Ayampe and Cabanas la Tortuga has become my beach "home away from home" (I live in Cuenca where I run my own little B&B (The OASIS Bed...

We stayed at the Tortuga Cabanas recently and had a mixed impression. The facilities were well thought out and attractive overall, with some cabanas enjoying a sea view. The cabanas were clean, showers were excellent, and there were some thoughtful touches. However, we found the space restrictive, and at $40/night, somewhat overpriced. For example, in Canoa, at Hotel Bambu, a... More
