The guest house is less than ten mins in the car from the airport which is why I chose it. It's basic but serves its purpose well. I needed a place to stay overnight, arriving at the airport night and leaving in the morning. The guest house organized an airport pick up which was great since finding the house can... More

We stayed here for two days - the night before leaving to Galapagos Islands, and the night before heading back to the United States. The guest house is a great location if you want to be close to the airport since it is a 5 minute drive. The cost for the taxi is $5 each way. We always brought a... More

We came from Cuenca to get to the airport here in Guayaquil. My husband and I were very pleased when they greeted us and showed us to our room way earlier than check in time. The hosts are friendly and speak pretty good English. Food at breakfast is simple, but good. Staff is great. The room is clean and simple... More

The rather difficult to find door on a small street opens up to a surprisingly modern home. We were the only guests, but I expect the noise level would be high from guests coming and going. Certainly the door bell resounded throughout the house. The enclosed parking as promised turned out to be not so enclosed with an asleep guard... More

I've stayed twice at the Tabuba Guest House, and I'm about to arrange another stay for my wife and children over the Christmas break. The operators (Jamie and Vanessa) really care about their guests, making sure that you enjoy your stay. The rooms are very clean, roomy, and well equipped with adequate linens, cable TV, internet and AC. There is... More

After spending the past 1 and 1/2 years traveling outside of Ecuador, there is sincerely nothing more refreshing than returning to a place where you feel cared for and safe and just totally relaxed. In Guayaquil that place is Tabuba. Since my first stay with them over two years ago, I have been back 4 times. Each time, everyone at... More

This is my second review. The first was written practically hours before my second trip to Ecuador. I was to stay in this guest house for the second time. I thought that all had been checked - the hostal, the pick up driver, etc.I thought those people reliable, which is why I booked my second stay and made sure that... More

We found them on Trip Advisor, so we're giving back. Stay here! Private, secure, and reasonably priced taxi service to / from the airport was a huge attraction. Ask for Filipe. The husband-wife-baby team that runs the hotel is adorable. Their rooms are classy, clean, and well air-conditioned, but there were some ants and cracks on the walls (common in... More

A very nice place with cool people, clean rooms, close to the airport. We stayed there twice before and after going to Galapagos. With taxi drive we could visit the centre of Guayaquil and also get the airport. I liked the triple room the most!!! I can recommend this place surely!!!

Stayed just for one night prior to going to the Galapagos. Rooms were beautiful and had a king sized bed. Staff were incredibly helpful, great advice and service. Would not hesitate recommending this place. It is hard to find. If you ask to go to the Sana Sana pharmacy on Sauces 2. When looking at the pharmacy there is a... More
