We stayed in Tsafiki from 31/12/14 - 4/1/15. We enjoyed it very much. The owner, Lori, who runs the place now, and her kind staff is offering plended service. The breakfast is very good, you can choose 5 variety's. The Cabana on the beach, is a great place to relax, watch te sunset and have a cocktail and a "ceviche".... 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

This place is amazing...pure relaxation right on the ocean! The views are exceptional and the staff goes out-of-their-way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I just returned from a family vacation and can't wait to go back with my friends. The cabins are clean and quaint. Every room has an outdoor terrace with table, chairs and a hammock for... More

This is our second time going to Tsafiki and we enjoyed it both times (Feb and April 2014). In the two months since we last went, many improvements were made to the cabins to make them even more comfortable. The cabins on the second floor are great because they have a a direct view of the beach and the breeze... More

Yep, it is that good of a place. We were looking for a quiet beautiful place to rest up from frequent travels and found that Tsafiki more than met our needs. The new owners have been working hard on upgrading the cabanas. We found them clean, great showers, stable power source which is good for WIFI. It almost seemed as... More

Clean, with nice rooms and located directly at the beach, this hotel is perfect for a stay on the coast, if you are looking for good value for your money and nothing too fancy. The owner is very helpful and the rest of the staff was also really nice. There is a Cabana with hammocks right by the beach and... More

We stayed here on the winter off-season during the whale migration and while the location was great, the experience itself was not. We were three families from nearby Guayaquil and from the US, and we all agreed on what the Tsafiki was lacking. We loved that the place was right on the beach and the room rate was great because...
