Quaint beachy cottages paired with outstanding hospitality made this the perfect place to stay in Puerto Lopez. We loved the short walk to the beach along with the great breakfast. Make sure you try the organic Ecuadorian chocolate when you're there. It's amazing.

I stayed here for a couple of nights. The hostel is ok, but don't expect anything special. The garden and the dorm was very messy, everything seems old and it lacks atmosphere. The owner, however was really nice and I enjoyed my staying

We stayed in one of the cabinas here for two days. Arriving earlier than anticipated, the staff brought us in and let us check in early, gave us breakfast, made sure we were comfortable while we waited for the room. The breakfast was simple but good fare. The views from the restaurant lovely - from the room not so much,... More

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Hosteria Itapoa. There was some drawbacks but not everything can be perfect all the time. Positives: Beautiful ocean view, great service (Maria is very helpful), close to the beach/restaurants/stores, good breakfast (bread, eggs, juice,coffee, and fruit), cool hangout area with hammocks and upstairs view of the ocean, clean rooms and bathrooms, A/C...

Pretty and spacious "lodge" with bamboo cabanas with hammocks on your private terrace in shady garden next to the beach. Clean rooms and baths, various categories (main difference with or w-out air condition), good and friendly service (depending on ever changing staff - volonteers), good standard breakfast in a special bamboo building at the entrance where you could spend the...

Room was clean, and good location. Breakfast was good. But very expensive for what it is. Stayed 3 nights. Wouldn't stay again because of the price. It seemed cheap when we booked it from the UK, but having spent time in Ecuador now, I'm disappointed we paid so much.

We loved it. It was across the beach with a beautiful view on the beach while having a very good included breakfast or sipping a beer. The room was beautiful with a terrace and a hammock. It is shaded under trees. It was very clean and the beds were made every day, the towels changed every 2 days.

I stayed at this hostel with a girlfriend. We booked a private cabana with two beds by calling directly. Each cabana has a small porch with a hammock, though if you get a shared room there is a great hang-out spot in the front of the hostel with several hammocks to enjoy. Breakfast is included with the stay: eggs, bread,... More
