We arrived at 5:15 in the morning, waking the owner up. She let us hang out in the reception area until some others checked out. This place is right on the beach, which was a major plus for us. The kitchen is not good at all...but if you are not planning on cooking thats fine. The breakfast that is included is nothing fancy, but you did eat it looking at the ocean. The internet connection was really bad when we were there - but perhaps this is just Ecuador. The lady that owns the place is really nice, and in general we enjoyed our stay there... its not a good place for meeting other travelers, as no one really tended to hang out. We also stayed one night at Sol Inn, which has a more younger backpacker feel to it. This place is great if you are looking for some quiet.
