We had a great time here, which will be our 5th stay in two years. The food was great and of coarse the showers are the best in Ecuador. The staff all worked very hard to keep the rooms so clean. But of coarse we are back again because of the supper friendly owners who we will miss very much. Thank you for treating us so well.

Matt & Mandy, Canada.

Dear Maxima
I am very appreciative of all that you've done for me-I've been thoroughly comfortable and at home. Since I've been in Puerto López over the past few weeks. My suggestion is don't change nothing! This has truly been the most hospitable, friendly and fun place that I've stayed while in Ecuador! Many memories to take home and events to share .

Thank you Lorie Desmarais, USA.

This place is the best Hostal that I have stayed in during my travels. It has great showers, movies, spacious rooms and everything is clean. It also has great people and a huge selection of movies. I highly recommend this place.
