To Wake up and have the ocean in front of you, is priceless, is the most perfect view ever, fall asleep and listening...

Amazing owner. Made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Ana provided an excellent breakfast. Ana was very helpful helping me with the bag of fruits I purchased to try, she prepared them for us. Our stay was too short.

Think we can call it one of those "Paradis Place" to stay; been there for 4 nights; would have stay more... Ricardo is very kind and generous of information on everything around. His GF has an artistic sense for everything around the place. Somewhat off-track but worthwhile. Beach and food around mostly 20 minutes (in car). Will go back absolutely!

La Rinco remains one of my fondest memories of our trip to Ecuador. It is a perfect place to relax, very quiet and isolated at the top of a cliff on the coast in the middle of the tropical rainforest that runs between Ayampe and La Entrada. There is nothing around, so you need to go to the nearby towns...

The bungalow was superb....nice and sapcious (which is what we wanted for our very active and curious 18-month old son), a small basically equipped kitchen, AC in the...

A wonderful escape, the Casita was lovely, and our hosts were so gracious and helpful. It was the perfect way to end our travels in Ecuador. Be sure to visit the small village a short hike down the hill for amazing fresh seafood brought in daily by local fishermen. We loved the whole experience!

We stayed 2 nights at La Rinco on our recent trip to Ecuador. If you are looking to be away from the party atmosphere of Montanita this is the perfect place. The view is absolutely stunning as you the rooms are on a mountain overlooking the ocean. You get to enjoy this view throughout your breakfast which is a small...

The best value hotel on the coast run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Lovely artistic touches in each of the chalets and fabulous views from the decks of each chalet. Great recommendations for things to do and places to see. Dinner at the local farm house each evening was a delight, great food and lovely people.

We enjoyed the beautiful location and the nice house we lived in. The staff was very friendly, had many tipps for our stay in Ecuador and knew a lot about people and culture. For animal lovers the hotel also provides a dog and a cat :-)
