I stayed in this hotel 3 times during my trip to Ecuador with two friends and my mother. The facility is unique, charming and intimate in scale. Each time we came, the staff greeted us warmly, were consistently attentive, and helped us arrange taxis and confirm plans.
The true colors of the place came through when we returned there from the Amazon. My mother who is 91 had developed a bad rash and was feeling very tired. The hotel manager jumped right on the problem, arranging for a dermatologist to come to us in the hotel that same day. The staff brought Mom homemade soup in bed and made the rounds to two nearby pharmacies to find her the creams she needed.
When we arrived the second time, my friend captured the feeling best, "Being here feels like coming home."
