Recently attended a Ecuadorian wedding ceremony& reception at the Santa Barbara Hosteria including an overnight stay. What a fabulous resort, tennis, swimming, great comfortable rooms -most with a full jacuzzi. Food was excellent, service at wedding reception was great, our room attendant was readily available. I would highly recommend this place for a 'weekend getaway'!
