I have stayed a couple of times in Alandaluz which offers Ecological and Organic Food, Fruit, Vegetables and Drinks. The place is very nice and the beach is very nice. If you want to see Natural Ecology this is the place to go visit. Nice for relaxing vacation, touring and enjoying!

People were friendly, the food was also fine, and the views too. At the other hand the room was certainly not worth 72 dollars. I have stayed in Banos in a place including tv for 4 dollars which were at least as good (but knows that the coast is more expensive through).

The place is really nice, the cabanas are lovely, very rustic, and it has an eco feeling like no other. The service was really good, the pool was always clean, the food was awsome, the beach is pretty much private only for guests. You can camp there also and make a fire at the beach at night. Very romantic place!

Alandaluz was closed in march 2012 and has been re-opened in December 2012 under new management, it is now called CANTAELMAR. The restaurant is mostly vegetarian with some chicken/fish options. It is EXCELLANT! We have stayed there many times since 2010, just returned to the states and are already planning another 2 weeks for this july 2013. The cabins formally...

A few days ago (October 21, 2012), we passed by Alandaluz and the main gate was closed with a big sign 'Property for sale'. This was confirmed by someone in the nearby village. Please check before you go there! This used to be one of the best ecological hostals at the coast of Ecuador, but apparently it has gone down.

I have stayed here 3 times since 2007, usually in November, Dec. or January for 6-9 days. I love the small cottages, and the relaxed atmosphere. I read about the armed robbery, and I feel that is such a weird one-time situation that it certainly would not deter me from staying here again. No, there are no video cameras at...

We (self, wife, adult son) stayed here 5 nights beginning of Feb 2012. The buildings in bamboo are beautiful and the accommodation/ cabanas very nice. We used the swimming pool each day and of course it's right on the ocean. The staff were friendly and mostly tried to be helpful. The prices for accommodation and meals were quite reasonable (particularly...

If you're looking for a break from everything in a little piece of paradise, then Alandaluz is for you. This ecolodge is built on the beach with great care taken to preserve the natural habitat of the area. The log cabanas are excellent quality for their price, and the cocktail Alandaluz is outstanding. The restaurant is simple with delicious food...
