“Great beachfront hotel in Puerto Cayo, Ec”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

This hotel is conveniently located right on the beach just north of Puerto Cayo (This hotel and others in Ec are not exactly where the Booking.com map so indicates. But all of the locals knew where the hotel was, and happily guided us to the hotel.) The owners/ managers of the hotel are two American couples who are also developing the coastal lots immediate adjacent to the hotel. All were very friendly and went out of their way to help us with some car rental problems. The rooms, or at least ours, was a bit hot due to lack of a fan but they happily provided us with one. There is also secure parking at the hotel. Beautiful beach area and very private. We would stay there again.

This was the perfect spot for us to unwind after a fairly hectic whirlwind leg of our RTW adventure. Some days we literally only moved to ensure our beach chairs were appropriately shaded or to ask Carlos for another juga de pina. So peaceful and restful. Definitely not the party location of Puerto Lopez, but a lovely place for long walks on the beach, birdwatching from the veranda, or a cool cerveza on a warm day.

The key was just to ask the staff for whatever we needed (laundry, tacos, arrange a trip to Isla de la plata, arrange surfing lessons).. they are perhaps a little shy, but they are willing to accomodate, so just ask!

The owners live locally as well and are very engaged as was mentioned in another review.

The location is approximately 3.7km north on the beach road from the center of Puerto (past the rotary) and a ~$3 mototaxi ride from town.. so it is a great place to retreat to if you've been in the hustle-bustle of Quito and need a bit of solitude!

Room Tip: Room #48 has a wonderful view and A/C...

You could not ask for a better, cleaner, quieter location in Puerto Cayo that this one!! We enjoyed every moment of our experience. We stayed the entire day. Enjoyed lunch and dinner. The food was prepared just right and was hot when it was served. My wife and daughters enjoyed the spa treatment. It was relaxing for them. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves for the entire day. It was clean, quiet and serene. At the end of the day we were able to make a fire and play music and just sit around and enjoy the surrondings. The staff is incredible. The are the first hands on staff that I have ever encounter. Their only goal is to make sure you enjoy your stay and are happy. They are with you every step of the way only if you want them to be. If you want quiet then just let them know if you want them to be around to assist same thing just let them know. I can't say enough about our trip and the enjoyable time we had during our stay. We are planning another trip very soon and look forward to staying much longer.

Beautiful location, clean rooms, accommodating staff and engaged owners equals a positive experience. This stretch of beach offers cleaner clearer water than some of the points to the south. I only saw 2 other people on the beach the first morning and they were with me! Talk about privacy. The owners even invited us to join them for a family style meal served on the patio next to the ocean. The chef presented several dishes with shrimp prepared in different manners...I recommend them all but my favorite was the fried shrimp or maybe it was the shrimp sauteed in butter and garlic or or...well now you know why I recommend them all. If you are looking for nice, low cost place to enjoy the beach with your family this is it. I understand they are going to totally rebuild the restaurant in the not too distant future and if you are looking for a place to build a beach home be sure to ask the owners about their next door project. WOW! step out of your front door and you are only 50' from the beautiful beach and the blue water.

Room Tip: If AC is a must be sure and ask in advance as only some of the rooms have AC. For me this is not a p...

in Puerto Cayo this is THE place to stay! The staff works very hard to please your every request . you wont be disappointed if you choose to stay here. If you want to venture out with assistance there is someone to do that with you and if you want to stay in or on the beach there is always a beautiful spot for you. I recommend anyone going to Los Suenos del Mar Resort.

Room Tip: if you want North American type comforts- just ask. for example air conditioner- they have rooms wit...
