The hotel is great, comfy rooms & good showers. A/C in the rooms, but we didn't need it as all the windows open. Breakfast was very good & they were happy to provide a light breakfast for a 6am start! I hurt my foot & needed a walking pole & a member of staff went out of his way to find me one, so thanks very much!
We cannot say enough good things about the Wooden House, the owner and the staff. Our room was not high end style but roomy and comfortable with a comfortable bed, great air conditioning, an excellent shower head and lots of character. Staff seems to be constantly cleaning and the whole establishment is spotless. Laundry was $3 per Kg. It might be cheaper in town (we don't know) but not worth the trouble and ours was done to perfection. no perfumed detergents, buttoned, folded and socks paired. We rented snorkeling gear and they had a good well cared for selection. The hotel is the first off the ferry a fast easy walk of perhaps 200 yards. It is the same walk back to a nice family beach and swimming area. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk into town or maybe $1.25 by taxi. If you don't stay here, eat here. We had our best meal in Ecuador here on our last night. We have no idea how they did it but our meal was as good as you could get in any high end restaurant. Lastly, from check in to check out the owner is amazing. There is a bell to ring for service, We rang the bell once only and it turned out he was behind us. Even before we knew we needed help he was there. The night before we left we went upstairs at 9 PM, he was in the bar. At 5 AM we rolled the luggage out of our room and he was standing at the top of the stairs waiting to help with our luggage. This is the longest review we have ever written but no one deserves it more. Stay here. The Wooden House rooms and restaurant deserve to be full every night.…
Very nicely situated little hotel that is family run. Great location away from the bustling center of puerto Villamil, close to the pier. Good own food both for breakfast and for dinner. Very kind staff and cosy rooms. Would stay here again.
We loved our stay at this Lodge. Very attentive and friendly service. We were upgraded to a better room. Clean room, good a/c, a bit on the small side. The location is convenient to the port. Quiet area. Good food at the restaurant. They also have wetsuit and snorkeling rentals.
