We made a reservation on line and requested a pick up at the airport for another $8.00 since Taxis are known to be dangerous in Guayaquil... Just to make sure we called from Orlando a few minutes later to confirm everything and were told that the reservation was not processed in the system yet but not to worry... Nobody showed up! we had find the help from a couple inside the airport to have them call the hotel.
Since the lady who was helping did not want to spend $ on her phone she asked the hotel to call right back which they did and offered to send a driver but we decided to take a chance a take a taxi anyway ... Let me tell you that the lady who called was 100% from Equator and she really was not nice with the staff at the hotel on the phone, demanding , rude etc JUST THE WAY YOU SHOULD BE IN THIS KIND OF SITUATION IN SOUTH AMERICA most of the time if you want to get anything done when you pay for extra service= BE LOUD!!!We speak spanish very well and just were amazed how she handle the situation.
The rest of the stay at the hotel was all and more that it was suppose to be, super clean and comfy room, amazing breakfast, very nice staff, well worth the $$.
