My wife and I stayed at the Macaw transiting in and out of Ecuador in December 2015. The location is great - a 20 min drive from the airport, though we weren't conscious of any airport noise. The whole place was very clean and tidy with character afforded by the timber doors and fittings. The breakfast is legendary - great... More

We stayed in a ground floor room with 3 people for two nights at the beginning of our trip in December and for one night at the end of our Ecuador trip in January. This is a delightful place run by a husband and wife, Fanny and Rodrigo. The place is maintained impeccably, the shower is great, the room had... More

Spacious room, air conditioned and spotlessly clean. Very friendly staff and a nice cooked and continental breakfast available. There is a nice courtyard to relax in and wifi is available in the foyer. You do need taxi to get you to the sights but there is a great locals fish restaurant round the corner if you fancy eating locally

They take such pride in the hotel and their service. Very professional. Although out of town a little, it is a short walk to a major shopping mall and only a $5 taxi to town. Some of the staff spoke little to no English but the owners were mostly around so we made sure we grabbed them for info and... More

We stayed at Macaw Hostal in September. It's clean, comfortable and good value. The people running it are very helpful and welcoming. They welcomed us with cool drinks. They packed breakfast for us to take away when we had a very early departure. Lovely, thoughtful touches.

Fantastic place to stay. Very friendly and helpful. Clean, quiet and feels like home. The owner treats you like family and is happy to help you no matter what it is. They think of everything and speak good English when your Spanish is not up to scratch.

Macaw is an excellent introduction to South American comfort. Fanny and the team are always welcoming, friendly, and personable. I've stayed here four times and can only say great things about staying here. Home stay feel with yummy included breakfast - will stay again!

The rooms are well furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful with excellent English. Breakfast was good. 10 minutes to airport and $4 cab ride to centre of town

A small and cosy place where everything from reception to bathroom, from service to breakfast delights make you feel at home. Make sure you have the address in writing to show the taxi driver. The location is very good, between Hilton and Mall del Sol, in a quiet street.

Many of us want to stay in a small and couzy hotel with excellent facilities and service. If you are one of them, this might be what you are looking for. Just remember that it is a trade-off, you get a personal service and loose the advantage of international hotels. I liked Macaw to certain extend, but I start with... More
