“The True Beauty of Silence....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

When looking for the perfect "get away" from the hussle and bussle of everyday life, this is the place to be. Granted you can enjoy the people watching of all the tourists and night life in the well known town of Montañita to the south, not to mention the beach of Los Frailes to the north, amongst other small towns with their own unique treasures to go and explore, all just a stones throw away from El Campito Art Lodge, .... but at the end of the day, after the sun has sunk into the ocean's arms for another night's rest, you too will sink into a peaceful night's stay in the Rain Forest feel of Campito's well maintained grounds. All meals are prepared with your preferences taken into consideration and served by a 5 star staff.

The cabins are immaculate, with all the amenities to make for a comfortable stay, Air Conditioning, Direct TV on a Plasma Screen, Internet Access, Hot Shower. However, once you are ready to lay your head down for the night, you may want to turn off all that is electrical so that you can listen to the quietness and beauty of nature. Like turning off all that wakens and stimulates us during the day, you too can you have complete relaxation all night long in El Campito Art Lodge. In the distance is the faint whooshing sound of the ocean's waves coming to shore, depositing tiny particles of healing salt that can be felt ever so lightly in the night's air. The occasional gentle pitter patter of rain on the Cabin's roof lulls you to sleep as if being craddled like a baby in her mother's arms. Just before the sun makes it's appearance for the day, you are aroused softly from your sleep by the most angelic songs sung by what must be the tiniest birds in the Rain Forest. Little by little other birds join in, as you too arise slowy but surely, totally rested, rejuvenated and ready for the day.

In addition, and possibly more importantly, el Campito is an Art Lodge as well. Not only will you view magnificent wood sculptued pieces, you may wish to bring your own art supplies as well. There is a large open area with a thatched roof to work on your masterpieces. The atmosphere is undoubtedly inspiring to express your creativeness.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
El Campito is a complex of cabins lauded as an ecological art lodge, and is surrounded by primary and secondary rainforest (as opposed to the area's predominant dry forest). It is just a few minutes away from the beach of Ayampe, retaining a private and secluded feel. The high-end bungalows with exposed brick interiors and earthly tones all have private porches with hammocks. The nicer ones have king-sized beds and flat-screen TVs with Direct TV, and the VIP suite even has a private outdoor Jacuzzi. However, there is also a pool and a Jacuzzi that any of the guests can use. El Campito's common area-with intricate wood-carved statues, wicker furniture and pool tables-combines nature and art. ... more   less
