My traveling companions and I were in the Las Tunas area to visit some nature reserves. I wanted a clean place to sleep. We picked Tsafiki Cabins. That was a very good choice. As we pulled off the main road and traveled down a dusty street to our lodgings, I noticed the area was not very upscale. I was a... More

We stayed 5 nights at Tsafiki in April. It is a great location for activities in and around Machalilla National Park. Our hostess Lori was great and very helpful with ideas arrangements for activities. The staff are lovely and the meals served in their restaurant fantastic.

I recently stayed at Tsafiki for 4 nights, and absolutely loved it! Las Tunas is a wonderful beach which is long, wide, has great waves and is not too crowded. Tsafiki's rooms / cabins are spacious, clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. All rooms have a terrace and a view of the ocean (there's also wifi). It's great to have... More

Awesome review. So glad you enjoyed your time with us. And how I wish you had asked for the lounge chairs. I do have some available. I will also look at a lighter option for breakfast. I appreciate your openness! Hope your trip back to Quito went well and hope to see you back here some day. More

This 7 room hotel has really thought of everything. Each room has a private balcony, view, drinking water jug next to the bed (this is a big deal haven't been anywhere in Ecuador with this) excellent wifi and the best owner/host/concierge you could ask for. Lori the live on site owner is American so international travelers can expect good quality... More

Tsafiki continues to be the place for us. This weekend is a year since we discovered Tsafiki per chance and we would not change it for the world, for it keeps getting better every time we visit. Four days with four kids and our two dogs would drive anyone crazy, but not Lori, she welcomes it. Where can you find... More

The terms warmth and hospitality are inadequate to describe the welcome we received at Tsafiki. I hesitate to say that guests are treated like family, simply because half of us don't have family that nice. The Restaurante Picante, which Lori also oversees, is an imaginative and unexpected fusion of haute cuisine and homestyle comfort food. It's menu is thoughtfully printed... More

If you are looking for a relaxing place right on the beach, great food and nice accommodation, this is the one. We spent three nights and wish we could have stayed more. During the day you can relax on the hammocks on the beach while sipping a drink and at night you can fall asleep at the sound of the... More
