The Divers Lodge is a hidden gem. Quiet, beautiful, enormous rooms, great city views (top floor), wonderful staff who go above and beyond. Kudos to the entire Red Mangrove team who showed nothing but care, and excellent service. Jimmy, our tour escort, remained amazing, and the whole team at this location are excellent, on the ball and genuine. Also commendation to the breakfast staff - with a shy smile nonetheless so quick to notice the smallest comfort. For those that it matters to, the Red Mangrove Divers Lodge is not on the beach front (we were staying here while the Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge, which is on the beach, was under repair from some Japan Tsunami related damage). While we typically like to stay on the beach, after 4 nights doing this on other islands, it was surprisingly nice to stay a little closer in town where there are lots of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the Divers Lodge. For us, it made for a nice way to mix it up to have this experience with all the qualities of a quaint Ecuadorian bed and breakfast over a resort on the beach for a few of the nights.
