My wife and I recently spent our anniversary here. The impeccable gardens and the hosteria layout of cabins and the infinity pool where stunning. With a private deck facing the ocean, the interior of our room was decadent, spotless and very appealing romantically. Excellent hot water shower and nice towels that absorb water ! A pitcher of drinking water and... More

Great place to stay when in Puerto Lopez. Great view on the sea from the cabins, restaurant, the beautiful gardens...or the infinity pool. No better way to relax after a day of whale watching than in the lovely pool. Non Germans be aware: the owners provide excellent german service... this means trying to be as minimal invasive to guest as... More

Beautiful hostel on a ridge overlooking the port city of Puerto Lopez. We stayed for two nights and were very pleased with our room, the pool, the dining facilities, and the service. Would definitely return!

If you are going to plan a trip to Puerto Lopez then make sure to stay at this property. Each room is an individual cabin. Clean rooms and beautiful grounds. Don't forget a GREAT VIEW too! You may decide to stay an extra day or two just to "kick back" and relax at La Terraza!

It was the 3d time that I'm in PL and stayed in different hotels but this is the best up till now. The service is excellent, the owners are really friendly and the breakfast is more then enough to keep you going. They have a fully equipped restaurant but I didn't have dinner there. The rooms are basic with a... More

We stayed at La Terraza two nights during a recent trip to Ecuador. The feel of the entire place is of total relaxation. Our Cabana was very private with a gorgeous glass door that allowed us to see the bay from our bed. The little patio in front of the cabana was perfect for sipping wine while watching the sunset....

We recently stayed one night in La Terraza during low season, so we were the only guests. Dinner had to be ordered in advance, but I guess that was due to the low season. The room and bathroom were spotless, and the cabana has a pleasant little terrace overlooking the town and bay of Puerto Lopez. The infinity pool was... More

And that is fine as this is a German owned establishment. It's funny because we tried to stay at Manadala and they were full. The reception reluctantly referred us to La Terraza. We read reviews on TripAdvisor and when we pulled up we could not believe why anyone would say anything negative. The place was beautiful! We even agreed with... More

The hotel itself was very nice and the grounds were well- kept. The beds in our room were uncomfortable. The mattresses were hard and lumpy. I can sleep anywhere, and I have before, but when I spend this kind of money, I expect higher quality. The husband and wife owners were very aloof. The wife tried to converse with us,... More
