Beautiful location, breakfast and dinner right on the water. Meal okay, mediocre.
Entered cabin and heard smoke detector beeping. Called staff who tried to tell me the beeping was from his radio but eventually convinced him otherwise. He took it down but didn't know how it worked so I showed him where the battery was and that he need a new one. He came back with the smoke detector in a rattan tray and reinstalled it. I said he should test it but he didn't know how. I tested it and it didn't work. Checked and he had replaced the battery the wrong way around ( negative to negative etc) I corrected it and it started beeping again. Eventually they did find a new battery and got it working but I was told it is mainly for visitors as they don't use such things in Ecuador. Then a pot light didn't work and we went through the same thing so I managed to fix it myself. The fireplace has a grate that doesn't stop the wood from rolling out and of course it did for me falling onto the hardwood floor. Then the smoke detector went off and there were no fireplace tools to pick it up. Very dangerous with no hearth, wouldn't be allowed in North America. Room was also very noisy, could hear everything the adjoining cabin was saying. What a night!
