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...

JCame to ayampe on advice from a friend after needing to get away from the noise of montanita for a bit. Stayed in a clean cabin at cabanas la tortuga. It was quiet with my own hammock, well stocked bar and restaurant, good wifi, friendly staff and easy beach access. Also has a clean looking swimming pool though i did... More

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

Was here in 2012 and I came back 2014. I love the location and the people. It's very laid back and clean. The food is awesome and so is the drinks. From here you are so close to a couple different towns or just lay on the beach and relax!!! See you in 2016 David!!!!! :)

We had a great time at La Tortuga. Santi was a great host and helped us learn all of the secret spots in the quaint surf town of Ayompe. We stayed in one of the beach front cabanas and enjoyed lazy days in the hammock, combing the beach for unique rocks, playing in the massive waves and meeting other travelers.... More

Went for a week, stayed a month. Delightful cabin on the beach with a big porch with a big hammock. Ayampe is a quiet surfer village with a half dozen hotels and restaurants. Tortugas is the best of both. The price was reasonable and the service was terrific.

I recently spent four days at Cabanas la Tortuga with my husband (who is Ecuadorean) and his mother, daughter and grandson. It was one of the best experiences I've had in Ecuador so far. Rustic without sacrificing comfort. The cabanas were clean, comfortable and charming. Ours faced the beach, so the view was spectacular and the sound of the surf... More

We stayed here for a few nights after experiencing the crowds in nearby Montañita. Unless you're looking to party (which I can totally respect!) this is a great alternative for a quiet, laidback stay and solid surfing. The cabañas are clean and comfortable, with screens in the windows and a fan so you can stay cool without being eaten alive... More
