The rooms were very simply but quite big and bright, and with a balcony and hamock. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was simple, but with delicious bread, good coffee and eggs served to your favor. Breakfast service was qite slow, as usual in Ecuador ;-) Best location: Close to harbour/pier with all the many sea lions, close to restaurants. Laundry service... More

The hotel was nicer than I had expected. With a 3 star rating I tend to keep expectations to a minimum, no need here. The rooms were clean and AC and WI-FI worked well. We were traveling as a group and had rooms 3, 4 and 5. All were basic but very clean. We enjoyed the common area balcony on... More

We stayed for one night. Our room was on the top floor with a small balcony and a great view over the ocean. The room was a bit dilapidated, but, clean and everything worked. The airconditioning was too noisy, but we slept well with it switched off. The free WiFi in the room worked, although very slow. The staff were... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor ocean view room (room on the left in picture). it was airy, simply but tastefully furnished, and relaxing, with large glass sliding doors to the porch where there was a hammock. The bathroom is small and clean with good ventilation (window present), but with delays in hot water (shower stall) and very poor lighting.... More

A very nice, quiet hotel at one end of the town. Very clean room. Excellent service, the staff was friendly and very helpful when we asked about local attractions. Located on the bay/water, we had a magnificent view. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. Fresh, drinkable water available.

True to others reviews, this place has a beautiful view of the ocean - we stayed in room 2, on the third floor and the views were indeed breathtaking. We had a hammock on our balcony which we could rest in soaking up the view and sea lions (who are quiet noises at night!) The rooms are basic, the bathroom... More
