The pool and rooms are clean and beautiful. However the breakfast comes with a side of nasty attitude. Be prepared for dirty looks and rude comments if you do not speak Spanish. The waitress for breakfast took orders of everyone who sat last before us(perhaps because we are foreigners and they weren't). I say this because it happened both days... More

We had both breakfast in the morning and a little bit of coffee later on in the day at Piedra del Mar. The ambiance was great, they have a fountain running next to the pool in the dining area in addition to interesting music playing all day. The coffee in the morning was great and the expresso and cappuccino that... More

The place is very tidy and the rooms are fully equipped with everything you would want. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. I came back after a few days to kill some time until my bus departed and the staff welcomed me as still being a guest. I would recommend this hostel highly to everyone

We had breakfast at Piedra del Mar this morning. They have a choice of four different breakfasts. We got the American breakfast - juice, nice fresh rolls, jam, butter, scrambled eggs, and choice of drinks for $4. The garden setting by the pool was very pleasant and service was good.

A great place for coffee. The ambient is fantastic, the owner likes conversation, (in a good way). Actually it is the lobby of his hotel, but a very neat place for a short rest and good coffee.

Piedra Del Mar Hotel Boutique now only serves breakfast for $4. The breakfast is three options: American (eggs, bread rolls, jam, juice), Light (fruit, yogurt, cereal) and a traditional Ecuadorian breakfast. All breakfasts are served with good coffee. Throughout the day they serve lattes, cappuccinos and espressos and you can relax by the pool. I only had the light breakfast... More

We travelled shoulder season when town was a bit quiter - still some noise on Saturday night but not unbearable (either that or we're just generally used to the noise levels after our weeks of travel). Fantastic location and the manager was really nice to us, fairly decent rate in comparison to other places vs. location. Plus breakfast was included... More

I went there today and was told that they are only serving breakfast. I did not enquire deeper but in Ecuador that likely means fruit, fried eggs, fried potatoes, and toast all but the fruit smothered in grease and fluoridated salt. Not saying that is what they do but it is the desayuno tipico here.

Very simple food but also very good. Really not expensive and the cooking was just right: not too greasy. Atmosphere and soft music are a much appreciated relief from the noisy environment of the Malecon.

We stayed at the hotel, and were lucky to have arrived when they started the restaurant up. Breakfasts included marmalade and jellies with toast, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee and scrambled eggs. After weeks in Ecuador we were looking for something different, so these guys were nice enough to cook up some real Mexican style tacos, complete with handmade corn... More
