Our offer is plain and simple, great comfortable cabins right on the beach, parking, pool, and cafeteria for breakfast on the ocean front. As to the rooms they are in great shape, including the cabins with fan. If a person doesn't like what they get they should say so right away, and request a change of room if possible, which... More

Hotel offers free tents, boogey boards and the service was fantastic! The beach is very peaceful, clean and with very few people (basically a private beach!). About a nice 15 minute walk along the beach to the cobachas (food and drink huts - make sure to have some fresh piña coladas! BOMB!). Eric speaks perfect English~ Originally we were a... More

Super security when we were there (Feb 2015). Clean and well maintained by Ecuadorian standards. We realize there was a security problem last year. We had a large room right on the beach in the new modern building and our room door locked automatically when we closed it. Security cameras, night guard, they lock the gates to the beach and...

It's funny because each of us has read the review about the incident of april 2014 without sharing the knowledge. Let me assure you, they now have security guard and cameras everywhere. Whatever, it was a very cool place, just on the beach. Friendly people around.

We booked our stay at Isla del Sol before reading the previous review. With some trepidation we decided to go ahead. When we arrived we were reassured that additional security measures were in place, and, indeed, a CCTV system has now been installed. We found Eric and his staff to be welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is good with beautiful fresh... More

Isla del Sol used be one of our favorite places to stay on the beach in Esmeraldas. However, our third stay there in April 2014 turned into a real nightmare and became the worst experience of our six years expat stay in Ecuador: On the last night of our stay, our ten-years-old son went to the terrace around 9:30 pm...

We are terribly sorry this event came to place, never in our history had anyone come in the hotel to rob or steal anything, and that it happened and went into your room was a complete shock to us all. We have done everything humanly possible to pressure the authorities to solve this case but have got not official response... More

First stop traveling down the coast of Ecuador! Marvelous Ecuadorian 1 room cabins with ensuite showers and toilet for very reasonable price! Nice pool behind on secured property. Eric and his staff very warm, friendly, and helpful. Ocean waves pounding rhythmically just outside your cabana, siply beautiful, quiet, with a few restaurants within walking distance!

We spent 5 very relaxing nights here following a hectic tour of Ecuador. We had a wonderful oceanview cabin with AC and was kept very clean. There is not much to do in Same, so ee passed our time walking on the beach sunbathing and swimming. Eric the manager speaks perfect English which is a bonus in this area. It... More

So quiet with just the ocean waves. No pesky beach vendors. Within walking distance to beach restaurants and small markets. Very friendly staff. Good A/C, hot water and parking. Some of the booking engines are showing the wrong location on their maps. It's South of Esmeraldas proper by about 20 miles. Some of the maps even show it on a... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife in our honeymoon. When we arrived we were greeted by one of two housekeepers that couldn't give much information about the surroundings. The place was really nice anyhow, small cabanas right on the beach. Unfortunately nor the owner nor any manager arrived during our 3 nights at the place. The housekeepers did... More
