We made our reservations on Booking.com and were a little bit misled by the information there. However, in the end, our family room turned out to be amazing, just without the balcony and sitting area that we had understood the room would have. Although there was no balcony, the entire length of the very large, bright room was windows looking... More

Booked a night then a week but ended up staying 11nights. This is a great place to relax, we were on a five week holiday and got to La Piedra and decided that this was the place we wanted to be before returning to work in the Arctic. Excellent value for cost, great staff, very accommodating and helpful and just... More

La Piedra is one of the few upscale hotels in Bahia so for those of you not looking for a backpacking hostel like experience, this is a perfect find! Nicely appointed rooms, which are large and clean. The cleaning people spent about 30 minutes every day in our room really 'cleaning' not just straightening. The staff is super helpful and... More

We spent 6 nights here, booking through Booking.com at $60+tax which is half this hotel's walk in rate. La Piedra could really do with some competition - it's currently the best of a pretty drab bunch of hotels in Bahía. We went to Bahía knowing that it remained a sleepy place untainted by the dreadful tourist sprawls along the Ecuadorian... More

Stayed here just for one night. In December of 2008. Asked the taxi driver for the best hotel in Bahia. Comfortable, clean, convenient location right on the beach. Delicious cuisine. A little expensive.

A happy land of hammocks, cleanish pool, and cold beverage staff. The weather is cloudy, but warm enough, and swells smash over the breakwater in front of the hotel. We eat dinner in the hotel restaurant, but weirdly enough are the only ones eating despite the hotel being completely full. Oh well, the whole place has the feel of Spain,... More

This is a very nicely appointed hotel in one of the best beaches of Ecuador. Conveniently located right on the beach, this is one of the few hotels in Bahia de Caraquez that has a nice, big pool and access to all amenities. I stayed at La Piedra recently, and I was not dissapointed, it was lovely and the staff... More

The hotel has a beautiful location and was a great place to stay in Bahia. The rooms were clean and I got a kick out the elephant towels. The problem I had was that the hotel staff was not attentive. We went down to the bar and it took forever to have anyone greet us. It then took forever to... More

The hotel has a beautiful location right on the point. The rooms were average but clean. There was not much in customer service at the front desk, the bar, or from the hotel staff in general. The wi-fi was sporadic at best. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice. Overall an average hotel with a very... More

We stayed at La Piedra one night in May and although the hotel has a great location right on the point in Bahia I don't know that I would stay there again. Anything to do with the staff was a nightmare because they all claimed to speak zero English and they were slow to do anything once communication was established.... More
