We stayed 2 nights at La Rinco on our recent trip to Ecuador. If you are looking to be away from the party atmosphere of Montanita this is the perfect place. The view is absolutely stunning as you the rooms are on a mountain overlooking the ocean. You get to enjoy this view throughout your breakfast which is a small... More

The best value hotel on the coast run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Lovely artistic touches in each of the chalets and fabulous views from the decks of each chalet. Great recommendations for things to do and places to see. Dinner at the local farm house each evening was a delight, great food and lovely people.

We enjoyed the beautiful location and the nice house we lived in. The staff was very friendly, had many tipps for our stay in Ecuador and knew a lot about people and culture. For animal lovers the hotel also provides a dog and a cat :-)

We had a wonderful stay at La Rinco for two nights over New Year’s. As independent travelers with a car at our disposal, we found the best of both worlds at La Rinco: easy access to a wide mix of coastal towns (from the manic Montanita to much more laid back scenes in Ayampe etc) but also a feeling of...

La Rinco is a very nice and clean place, but what I like the most was the service! You are able to feel confortable, the guy who is the owner is always asking you if everything is ok and he recomends you places to eat and visit! Also he has great ideas to involve the community in a turism project.... More

We stayed at La Rinco for three nights, and by the time we had to check out, we wanted to extend our stay for a week! The words that mostly describe the essence of the place are: peaceful, beautiful in its sights and nature surroundings and excellent in it´s warm and home-style service. Other features are that breakfast is great... More

We spend a week in La rinco in last April. Scenery is beautiful and because the location is a little bit off from the main road, it is an extremely peaceful place. Service and personnel was very friendly. We had very good time there. Renting a car in the coast was a good idea, you can see a lot of... More

La Rinco is located on a cliff with a beautiful view. It is the best place to relax and near Montanita and a number of beautiful beaches. The bus station is just a little hike up the road. At night we took a taxi back. We stayed at la casita which is beautifully designed with everything you need. They even... More

La Rinco is a unique place, different from any other options stretching from Montanita to Puerto Lopez. For starters, the view simply can't be described or shown in pictures, you have to be there to appreciate the bird eye perspective of the place. It is literally a hill on the sea so, in addition to the view, you will be... More
