The staff was fantastic and really went out of their way to help with whatever we needed. They were knowledgeable of the area and gave great advice. The pool is fantastic as well as the hotel itself. The rooms are a little more on the rustic side (low-pressure showers) but are still well kept and have functioning air-conditioning. All of the upstairs rooms have great views of the ocean or the forest canopy. This is a great destination for those who want to explore the area at their leisure and don't want to stay in a busy surfer town. A great getaway!

- Machalilla National Park is one of Ecuador's many natural treasures, a destination so unique and inspiring you will want to make it home. Some of the wildest, most spectacular beaches in the entire Pacific coastline, long-lost islands where iconic seabirds nest in their natural conditions, the beauty and mystery of both equatorial tropical rainforests and tropical dry forests, as well as transcendental archaeological findings, some of the oldest in all of the Americas, are only some of the reasons that make it so special. For over 10 years we have made it our primary goal to offer the highest quality services in an ecological gem like Machalilla and the Ecuadorian Pacific Coast. We have combined exciting excursions that bring you closer to nature and local communities, with peaceful accommodations, awe-inspiring views, ample rooms, and excellent food. Our idea is to offer the ideal springboard for discovering the many attractions the area possesses. We inevitably work to create environmental awareness through the celebration of nature, wildlife and ecological diversity. We understand the impact that any venture leaves at its wake, and thus offer a sustainable operation without compromising our quality service. Our venture is certified by Smart Voyager, as well as Rainforest Alliance, guaranteeing our green and responsible practices. And we do it because we love what we do.
