The airlines messed up our flight and we were forced to stay the night in Quito unexpectedly. I made reservations for this little B&B in Tababela only 10 minutes from the new airport. I booked the Matrimonial suite via Booking.com and then emailed the owner's daughter who handles the reservations for her family's business. We were confirmed and because there was no other option available and I was in a pinch.
A misunderstanding in communication caused confusion upon arrival because they expected me to be traveling with my wife. They attempted to find other arrangements for us because they only have 3 rooms; the bigger having already been booked. I assured them that it was okay for me to share the bed but they would not hear of it and gave my travel companion the single bed room they had left without extra cost to us.
We arrived at night and it was a little difficult for the taxi to find but we did after an extra 5 minutes of driving around. There is a small street sign with the name of the street but it is a dirt road next to crops, so it can be missed at night. What we could see of the grounds were very nice and the house very comfortable. It is a family home of very religious people that are the nicest I have ever met. They bent over backward to make us comfortable and ensure we were feed both the night before and the following morning before taking us to the airport.
The beds were great and warm and the bathroom ready for us. We felt at home with family. We would stay here again anytime. Far better than any cold hotel. We can not express our gratitude.
