This is the place we were looking for, great location, fabulous food, we are vegetarian, and the cook made the best meals for us. The owner
Is an amazing guy, very generous, hospitable and an eye for turning the property into a hidden jewel--a diamond when so many beach communities are just too much. You will not be disappointed.

Walking up the bouganvilla lined lane, you can almost miss the gateway into this little treasure. But it is well worth seeking out. The rooms are comfy and were reminiscent of a weekend at the cottage. The view was awesome as we enjoyed a great dinner for a reasonable price, and watched the sun set on another day in paradise. Everyone there was very friendly and we were made to feel very much welcomed. Ayampe is a place well worth checking out on the Ecuadorian coast, and Fince Punta Ayampe the ideal place to stay.

Room Tip: There are no tuk-tuks or taxis in town, but well worth the few extra steps to walk to this place wit...

Stayed here while on a surf trip with my cousin. We had one of the lower cabanas with a great view of the beach, own bathroom and hot water. Able to take a siesta in the hammock on the deck while keeping an eye on the surf. If you are looking for quite place to stay this is it, but close enough to Puerto Lopez or Montanita if you are looking for a little more excitement. When we were there breakfast was included with our cabana. Great breakfast of fruit, juice, tea, eggs and toast. One of the best parts of Finca Punta is the view of the beach from the restaurant/lounge area which is located on a hill up from the cabanas. Finca Punta serves dinner with a pretty big menu of pizza, fish, chicken and even vegetarian sandwich. The staff especially Mariscal was very friendly and informative about the town and Ecuador in general. They also have WiFi at the restaurant area. The one downside is that when it rains heavy the power usually goes out for a little while. This is not specific to Finca Punta but the entire town. This shouldn't stop anyone from coming to this wonderful place but I thought I would mention it so people would be aware.

Thank you to all of the staff at Finca Punta Ayampe for making us feel at home.
I wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at Punta Ayampe last weekend. Everything was perfect, the food was delicious and the staff were amazing. We will definitely be back. We are happy to recommend this amazing place. I felt like I was in a tropical jungle, yet there was the Pacific Ocean right in front of me. We have been up and down the coast and this is truly one of our favorite places.
Thank you

While travelling up the coast looking for good surf, we came to the Finca Punta Ayampe, where we decided to stay a few days. The hostal is located a little outside of the small town, so expect some minutes of walking when going there by foot. On the other hand it has a spectacular location and an unforgettable view from the terrace and our balcony directly on the surf spot. The whole estate is very beautiful and the lounge very nice decorated. The prices are a little above average in the area, but you wouldnt get much better accomodation aorund there. We loved the seafood pizza, it was really outstanding! Our hosts were very caring, Aldo even drove us to a nearby surfspot with his pickup. Would go there again anytime...
