Pool was full of mold, green algae, and mosquitos. No one in their right mind would swim in it. Hosteleria was empty. We were the only guests. Despite that, none of our requests were met--even the most basic ones for extra pillows or towels. Our tiny, cramped Dulcinea room was FULL of bugs including a major ant infestation, large bugs that looked like cockroaches, and, in the mornings we woke up covered in bites from sleeping in the bed. We managed to spend 4 days in the Amazon bit-free, only to get eaten alive in our Quijote hotel room! Final insult, on the second morning we awoke in bed in our undies to find the elderly gardner peeping in our window at us. Disgusting! Do yourself a favor and stay in downtown Ayampe'--much less expensive and nicer. Quijote must have had a very talented photographer. This place was over promised and under delivered big time.

It is a great place to relax on the beach for couples or family. The service is excellent and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Highly RECOMMENDED!!!!! I would definitely go back.

Meson del Quijote is different from the other hotels I´ve stayed at - I loved the fact that the cabanas are all build of bamboo. That makes it unique and very cosy! We stayed in the Dulcinea Lodge which had just been redesigned - it was wonderful with a comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. Breakfast and dinner we had in the restaurant was delicious! Walking down a small path, you are directly at the great beach "Los Ahorcados". Also relaxing at the hotel pool was great after touring the whole day. The owner Armando is a lovely person, very welcoming and makes you feel at home :-) Very recommendable - we hope to come back soon in the whalewatching season!

We didn't have the time to stay here that long, but the place itself is really interesting with different bamboo buildings and innovative architecture. There's a pool, a small playground, an outdoor spa and a private walkway through the mangroves to the uncrowded beach.

The place is located between the two villages of Ayampe and Las Tunas where you can find some nice restaurants, and even though you could either walk to them both along the beach (20-35 mins) or catch the bus, a car would be prefered if you don't plan on just staying here all the time.

The food we tried here was delicious and nicely served.

I stayed at the Meson for three days and could not have been happier. It´s a place full of details, environmentally-friendly architecture and great service. Everything is well kept and clean. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. If a person is looking for the run of the mill type of hotel, this is not it. Meson del Quijote is for relaxing, enjoying the beach taking long strolls or just lying on the hammocks they provide in front of the ocean. The view in every direction is wonderful and the pictures you can take will make you proud.

The Hosteria has a wonderful modern and unusual design. We were in a Dulcinea Cabana, which was very clean and spacious. All the team was extremely kind and ready to help. The restaurant is good and the cook is very creative. The beach is huge and spectacular, and the crew offers very effective beach services.
We were a bit worried when we saw the review of alejandro h but we are happy not to have believed it, because we did not experience anything of what he mentions.
Only few points to improve: (1) you need to speak Spanish because hardly anyone speaks English (2) in such a country so rich of fruits like Ecuador, amazingly fruit was very little available at the restaurant (3) in the cabana Sancho the isolation between each room should be improved

Room Tip: Chose a Dulcinea Cabana, very nice and less expensive. For the moment avoid the Sancho Cabana if you...
