6.3 Good
Pros: Location is really is good but depending on the room you might be bothered by noises from the highway since it is close by to the back of the hostel
Cons: The bad thing about is they own a lot of cats which are roaming around the common area as well as the kitchen which makes it a bit dirty. Personally it was a problem for me since I am allergic to cats and wasn’t able to enjoy the common areas. It would be nice if they let you know beforehand so you can decide if you want to stay there or not. Also the only guy from the stuff was openly flirting with my girlfriend in front of me which made it uncomfortable for my girlfriend and I
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Mariscal is the man!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: In the adorable sleepy village of Ayampe lies this haven of all accommodations. Perfect for relaxing and/or surfing and just having a chill time in general. The staff is what makes this place amazing - they will go out of their way to help you with anything from recommendations, directions to anything concerning your health if you need! Special shout out to Mariscal who took such great care of us when we were there!
Cons: The only reason I didn’t stay longer was because Ayampe was probably a little too sleepy for me (turns out that I’m quite restless!), but that’s hardly the accommodation’s fault and is in no way a reflection of my time there!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Raw nature. Spondylus is great, Ayampe's for real.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is incredible. It is nicely hidden and sheltered from the noisy highway and close enough to the beach to hear the waves breaking. The lodge itself is beautiful and tasteful, very clean and great to relax and enjoy. Mariscal (the lodge keeper) is friendly, thoughtful and super helpful. He greets guests as if we were friends and it is clear that he cares for both guests and the lodge. Great guy. Awesome vibe overall.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay because of a lot of little things. For example, every room has its own space in the fridge and the staff could even reserve us a place in the bus from Puerto Lopez to Quito.
Cons: The only thing that could have been better would be a heated Jacuzzi.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was Just perfect, As usual
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved my stay at this charming hostal! Mariscal made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived. The outdoor patio spaces and indoor seating made it easy to relax and interact with the other guests or steal away with a book for some alone time when I wanted it. The location is perfectly central, with the bus stop just up the hill and everything else within a few minutes walk away, including the otra ola café, the beach, and AYAMPE’S restaurants.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff is very friendly and the location is very close to the beach (less than 5 min walking). Air conditioner in the room.
Cons: The parking area is not convenient and hard to get around when it rains. No breakfast included which is surprising because the prices are high compared to other properties in the area. The room was not very clean. We had to ask someone to clean our bath a second time. No hot water.

Pros: Very friendly owner and staff. Great service and fast to reply and help with recommendations. Nice rooms and good shower and well protected from mosquitoes. Excellent location right on the beach (there's a gravel road in front with basically no traffic). Good breakfast and small but nice garden. Quiet location but good access to everything.
Cons: We came in October which we read was dry season. But in this place it's basically overcast all of October and November with quite a bit of rain. So go in Jan-May which we were told is the best period with sun all day and rain at night.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I loved my room especially as I could see a little pocket of ocean from bed. It’s right on the beach and loved the view at breakfast and from the chairs and tables outside. Also from the restaurant upstairs which had good food. Enjoyed the fresh homemade muesli for breakfast. Also enjoyed the cats and dogs, especially Morena, the house cat
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were very well looked after here - Franzi was a great host and checked in with us regularly to make sure we were having a comfortable stay and to answer any questions. Our room was lovely and one day when it rained, we very happy just chilling out there.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property has a real family feel. Definitely the best place to stay in Ayampe. Magnolia, Jenica and Julie really looked after us. The place was beautifully made and there was a real personal touch to the whole experience. We’d highly recommend!
Cons: The only thing that could have been better is the location in terms of distance to the beach. This is easy to check via google maps so it wasn’t a surprise. It also wasn’t a problem as the walk was only a couple of minutes. We’d still stay there over any of the other properties in Ayampe.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a perfect hotel. The design, staff and beautiful location are all fabulous. The rooms are beyond comfortable and the black bottom swimming pool is such a treat. Jenica, Magnolia and Julie took amazing care of us, making sure we always had everything we needed and going out of their way to cook us delicious vegan breakfast (the French toast was perfection, Magnolia)! If you are thinking about staying in Montanita or Puerto Lopez, don’t do it! Stay in Ayampe instead. It’s very close to both of those towns but it’s so much prettier. Ayampe is the jewel of the Ecuadorian coast and there isn’t a more amazing place to stay anywhere in Ecuador.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved everything about it - Magnolia and Jenica and Julie were awesome. Loved the dogs, the breakfast and hospitality, the rooms, the property and set-up, the views, the bedding! A perfect 10!

The room and bathroom were probably the nicest we had in all of Ecuador. The breakfast was also really nice and fresh. We were there during the transportation strike and the staff helped arrange for us to make it to the airport which was very kind.

Pros: The small-family business atmosphere and customer service provided by Sebastian and his family, spectacular view from the balcony, cleanliness and safety of the property AND Las Tunas Beach, the excellent, complimentary breakfast, delicious meals that can be ordered on site, their original Margarita, the BIRDS! - honestly...everything! Cannot wait to go back and will definitely recommend to friends and family members. Additional Note - By mistake we took the keys to the room in one of our bags when packing. Sebastian was patient, flexible and accomodating in how we could get the keys back to him. Could not have been more thankful for this as it was late and we were already on the road when we discovered the error.
Cons: We always prefer a place RIGHT on the beach; HOWEVER, the ocean view from our room was great, we could hear the waves crashing from inside the room, and the walk to the beach was short, pituresque and pleasant.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Gave me ride to ayampe to get a surfboard
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place , beautiful yard and nice location a short walk from the beach. Owner super friendly and accommodating, when he found out our sons were skateboarders he took them to his friends place who had a skateboard park in his back yard!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very lush grounds. Lots of flowers and you feel like you are in nature. Very quite! Sandra is a great host! Close to the beach just a short 2 min walk down the path.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The place is fantastic! It's just a 4 minute walk to the beach. Location is great. The owner and staff were lovely, and provided invaluable help for local information and tour planning. They also are nice companions for conversation. Inside the compound (which is large and spacious) we enjoyed the beautiful rustic finishes that blend very nicely with the abundant vegetation. We felt perfect isolation from our busy lives and were brought into the calmness of nature with beautiful accommodations and very useful common areas. We found it very handy to have access to a common, fully equipped kitchen (with a nice fridge to keep our every-day food). This allowed us to prepare snacks or even fully balanced breakfast for the entire family. It is also a great place to talk to other guests and pet the local cats.
Cons: There is really very, very little we didn't like about the Iguana. We thoroughly loved the place! Our only minor (and it actually is VERY minor) complaint would be that, for longer stays like ours (7 days), the lack of any shelves or drawers in the room required constant moving back and forth things from the luggage. This was specially true for wet stuff like bathing suites, so we ended up using the furniture. This in no way prevented us from enjoying the place and being comfortable all through our stay.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location, the staff, the ambiance, it is very nice and peaceful
Cons: The pillows were not comfortable
7.9 Good
Pros: Everything was clean, Sandra (who speaks german) was giving us a warm welcome. There are 3 lovely cats you can cuddle with
Cons: We paid 17$ each person, without breakfast, and this is quite expensive for a backpacker
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautifully maintained, quiet and lush green garden all around. 2 minute walk to an amazing beach with great waves if you like to surf. The staff are wonderful and always very attentive. Once you get there, it is hard to leave. 10/10
Cons: For me it was perfect in every way.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The location is great only 2 minutes to the beach. The room was spotless and fresh with a nice size bathroom with hot water and good pressure. There are a few covered camping spots and a communal kitchen and a large commomspace where you can hang out . Each room has two chairs outside where you can relax and enjoy the huge garden area.
Cons: Crockery and cutlery could be upgraded.

Montañita is 29 km from the accommodation, while Puerto López is 16 km from the property.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Hostal Mirada al Mar is my favorite location to stay on the Costa Negra. It's central to Puerto Lopez, short trips to Montañita or Ayampe are doable, but it still (for now) retains its honest Ecuadorian character. Quiet quiet beach, good food in walking distance (on the beach) and a good simple breakfast option available.
Cons: The accommodations are rustic and simple - this is not something I personally have a problem with, but those who want luxury accommodations should look elsewhere. This is no muss, no fuss space at a good price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The warm welcome we received the moment we got out of the taxi. The couple we're warm and inviting which continued through our entire stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole family running the place was so kind generally,bit especially when I got stung by a stingray. They helped me so much, taking care of the wound and me. Apart from their empathy and care, the place is amazing. You have an amazing view,right by the beach,a hammock on the terrace,great wifi, peace and quiet,empty beaches just for you. Although I recommend buying some general things before coming cause the amount of shops around is limited,there are cars with fruits and vegetables that come around every now and again. Amazing place,so tranquil. Plus the shower always had hot water.
Cons: I liked everything.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very welcoming and friendly staff. They don't speak English, so it was a good opportunity to practice my Spanish. The single room with the private bathroom was great value for money ($11.50). The shower was amazingly powerful with hot water! There is a rooftop with hammocks to relax & downstairs they sell cheap beer, soft drinks and snacks. They don't have a restaurant but there are places to eat nearby. I also like that it's right by the sea.
Cons: The WIFI was not very strong. My bedroom door was very difficult to open. The windows didn't quite meet the walls so mosquito could enter easily, and there was no mosquito net.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best hostel we stayed at so far in Ecuador, after travelling for 6 weeks! Can't recommend enough to anyone - family, solo, couple, absolutely anyone. Perfect location looking straight out to sea, and from Las Tunas you can travel anywhere up the coast within 30-40 minutes. Spotlessly clean, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, friendly helpful hosts and excellent value for money.

Pros: very friendly lovely family.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very lovely owners, spectacular view at the ocean and super cosy cabañas. The bar is also very nice. We walked to Ayampe along the beach within 40 minutes, just beautiful!! All in all a super relaxed and amazing place to stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is a gem directly in front of the beach in an otherwise quiet, small town. The shower is hot, the wifi is good, the fan works, you can use the kitchen 24/7 and the staff is great. The best part is the view of the islands from the hammock in front of the room.
Cons: There could be a screen stapled to the window to let the air in and see outside without letting mosquitoes in. There was no mosquito netting.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The place: calm, facing the sea, rooftop Run by a family Getting a towel, soap and shampoo sample Bed was comfortable 15aminutes by bus from Puerto Lopez (0,75$), 35minutes from Montañita (1,5$) Small restaurants on the main road with Almuerzo for 3$

7.9 Good
Pros: The room was rustic, as shown in the pictures, in harmony with the beach atmosphere and quite spacious. The staff was nice and helpful. The restaurant on site serves good pizzas.
Cons: Unfortunately while I was there, there was the Pueblo fiesta, and the speakers were blasting all night long in the street just behind the room. It was so loud that earplugs were just efficient enough to prevent me from driving my head through a wall. :) So if you go to Ayampe for la tranquilidad as I did, just check beforehand. It can get quite hot in the room, and the fan was not strong enough to cool things down. On my last morning there, I got stucked with soap on me cause water stopped working in the middle of my shower... Appearantly there was a power shortage in town.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Its super relaxing with hangmats everywhere. Unfortunatly we've been there on a wendsday when the restaurant is closed, but it looks reallly nice! The rooma are very clean and super cute prepared with towels and soap and drinkable water and a mosquitonet. To the beach its more or less 30 seconds :D We really liked and enjoyed our stay here!
Cons: Unfortunatly to expansive for our low budget tour, but worth any penny!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and cosy place to stay.  They have about 6 private rooms, lots of hammmoks and a nice roof top common area where you can sea the waves. The room has its own private bathroom and is very well decorated. They even have a net in the bed. There is a fan, which for me was enough. The room is cleaned everyday. Water to drink for free available all the time. Recommend it.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great location near the beach in very nice and easy going Ayampe. The restaurant had the very best Italian food for diner!
Cons: The beds were not comfy and they did not change the bedding during our 5 day stay and it was very hot in the room. no descent ventilation, no airconditioning and the fann was really bad and not working correctly. the staff was not present during the day so it was hard to ask questions.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Vladimir, the owner/manager is so devoted to his guests. He really makes sure you have a good time, and indeed I had a wonderful stay. Such a peaceful place nearby the beach only 1 min walk, Los Orishas is the place to be in Ayampe, that's for sure!
Cons: It can get really warm without AC, but that's Ecuador's weather! I asked for a second fan and got it without any problem :) It would have been nice to have access to a kitchen as well to prep my own meals, but I have the say the food they serve at the restaurant was delicious.

4.6 Okay
Pros: The bungalow was clean and comfortable .
Cons: The restaurant area was dirty and looked like it really need proper cleaning ! , food is average but takes forever to arrive , breakfast is dull and boring .. nothing special at all , it seems they need to train their staff in proper hospitailty services.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great views! Shower was amazing, hot and powerful! Room was nice clean and big, the hammock outside was a great bonus. Staff were helpful and food in the restaurant was delicious!
Cons: Lots of bugs around but can’t really be helped due to location. Lots of steps and a fair walk from the centre.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: View was amazing, little paradise with ocean view. Amazing staff, super friendly & helpful. And the food was delicious, very healthy and diverse. We actually went there every night for dinner.
Cons: View to the ocean was great but it was a bit of a walk down the hill and into the village. We didn’t mind that
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Finca Punta's location is awesome. The staff were so friendly: Eric in particular was super helpful. Being able to watch the beach sunset from the pool or your bed/hammock was unreal. The food was also quite good! Included breakfast was delicious.
Cons: There are quite a few stairs so keep that in mind. The rooms are a ways away from the reception/restaurant area so if you plan to eat meals there prepare for a short walk. The road to the hotel is also not brightly lit on parts of it, so if you're coming back late at night, just make sure to have your phone light or a flashlight.
6.3 Good
Pros: Staff were great, location was beautiful.
Cons: Showers didn’t work properly, no hot water intermittently. Beds didn’t have mattress covers on them. We were charged more than the booking.com price and extra $68 USD then they added a 8% fee for using credit card to the final bill price. No other hotel in Ecuador that we have stayed in has done this. None of this was in the property’s pricing policies on line. Additionally they added the 12 % IVA tax to the final amount, yet in the quote it was meant to be included in the booking rate. I estimate we paid over $200 USD extra over the stated rate. I’m trying to resolve this with the property manager. But not impressed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a beautiful finca with a stunning sea view and a very cosy lounge area with sofas, hammocks, chimney and an all-day kitchen service. Food is always fresh, good quality and really delicious. The rooms/cabañas are perfectly protected against mosquitos, the bed is big size and comfortable. The whole stuff is very friendly and helps to fulfill all your wishes. We can absolutely recommend this place!!!
Cons: Nothing!

It was quiet and private. We had the place mostly to ourselves. Everything was amazing! We'd come back here in a heartbeat!!!!!!
Cons: We had to leave so soon and couldn't enjoy it more.

Pros: Vista Mar was beautiful! It is a very small guest house with only 4 rooms set on a quiet street with estuary and ocean views. Our room was just as we expected and lots of care was put into the detail of making this beautiful retreat. There is lots of common hang out space outside the room so it was very comfortable. Paula was incredibly helpful and friendly.
Cons: The weather during July is very cloudy, windy and cold so not fun for the beach but Vista Mar was a cozy place to relax away from the beach.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Was very impressed with Paula who was running the place. Rented surfboard and made travel arrangements with her.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location and the property are really nice.The view. Beautiful home.
Cons: When we went to bed on our first night there was blood on the sheets from previous guests.I complained about it and we got the sheets changed. But when Paula asked the young male cleaner about it he said it was from aloe vera plant. I am a woman and I am a cleaner with 18 years experience in housekeeping and this was period blood. It’s not cleaned very well either. We stayed for 4 days and was supposed to get a daily service. We didn’t get one until 3 day. It is way overpriced for what we have experienced in the whole of Ecuador. I wasn’t going to write this but I feel cleaniless is more important when staying at a hotel.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely stunning views over the lagoon to the sea. Matteo, the owner, built the house & it’s full of personal touches - hand-built bed & bottle glass bathroom windows. The roof terrace is great for hanging out and whale watching. Useful to have the kitchen too. Beautifully fitting stay for peaceful Ayampe.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Matteo is a super nice and Uncomplicated host. He runs the Hostal since a couple of years and soon upon your arrival you’ll notice that he built this place with so much love for the little details. The room was super comfy, the view at the second floor extraordinary and the location very quiet. Can recommend the cooking class they offer, for only little money you can have an experience with a local you’ll never forget!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, close to the ocean, nice pool and grounds.
Cons: The place seemed understaffed and often quite a long wait time for food and drinks.
7.9 Good
Pros: I loved that all the families there had young kids and the atmosphere was just what I was looking for. I did not want the hippy, backpacker vibe or folks around my kids and I wasn't sure where to get that around that area, but this was a PERFECT place. The boat restaurant is super cool and unique, and the pool table inside was fun to use as we waited for food. There's a few swing sets, a pool area, and friendly dogs that guarded our front door for us! The kids also loved the upper level platform with twin beds in our particular apartment. Though it seemed a negative at first that there was no TV in the room, it actually was a plus as we talked more and played games more as a family. I also loved the gardens and green grass and wooden archways they've kept up so nicely on the property. And they closed the parking lot doors for the night, which I thought was a great extra protection for people and cars alike. The beach was empty of people most of the time, except for surfers in the evening. Two surf schools close by. No people selling stuff on the beach!!
Cons: The restaurant is understaffed for the amount of people that eat there. There's not really another place to eat in the neighborhood, I think I saw one street side place. And it's just a neighborhood, the city is further on. Though we were informed we would have to wait a long time for dinner (an hour) we did it anyway and just played pool while we waited. The food was good, though a tad high in price. The included breakfast was to slices of toast, jelly, and eggs how you like it, and juice, and hot drink. A little on the slim side. You defiantly don't go here for COMFORT in bed and bedding. It's more like adventure camp, just basic set up, though the room we had was quite large.
4.6 Okay
Pros: We upgraded to their best unit and had a large balcony with an ocean view. We liked the owners and wish them success.
Cons: The TV didn't work. The wifi was terrible - a weak signal with one device and unreachable with our others unless you went to the restaurant. The A/C was too small for the unit. The unit needed a deep clean. Deep layers of dust as if it had not been rented for a long time. It was very expensive for the value.
7.9 Good
Pros: The location , a delicious breakfast and a wonderful pool!!!!
Cons: I like everything!!!!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The pool & garden surrounding was ok. The pool was rather cold for children.
Cons: Our rooms looked nothing like the advertised pictures. The rooms were dated and very dirty. There was no hot water freely available to shower. We complained and management refused to see us making excuses. Breakfast was poor and we had to wait even though we pre warned staff that we needed to leave early for an excursion that the hotel booked for us. The excursion ended up costing more as additional transport cost were not mentioned. My brother had to wait over twenty minutes to leave the property early as the gates were locked. There is no one at reception before 08:00am so no help is available if needed. Our group of 4 adults two children including a baby experienced a very disappointing end to our holiday in Hostería la barquita. The Swiss guy who runs this facility needs to learn about hospitality.
6.3 Good
Pros: The pool was great and heated. The communal area was lovely and the drinks were excellent. They were very kind and gave us a free lift into town.

2.9 Mediocre
Cons: Very dirty.
4.2 Okay
Pros: It was just a short walk from the beach. It had a nice area to eat outside and the room had AC. The house is actually quite nice, but it was very messy.
Cons: From the start there was miscommunication. The manager had the incorrect price on Booking, he then changed it and tried to charge us more than it was changed to. They also had a photo of a pool on Booking that did not exist. The room was not clean (dirty shower floor with clumps of hairs all over, the room smelt). The kitchen was also filthy. I told the manager everything we were dissatisfied with so hopefully they will do better next time, but he had excuses for everything.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Second line from the beach.
Cons: I booked “Double Deluxe with the Sea View”. There is no such room in this place. So I got basic room with the fence view. When I asked about sea view - owner offered me to go outside and enjoy sea view from there. My romantic weekend was ruined. I payed $40 per night. Same room you can get in any hostel around for $25.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location right near the beach and store in town. Our room had air conditioning and a private bathroom, and there is a shared kitchen for guests. My husband accidentally left his money belt (with cash and passport) in the room. The manager came running to find us at the bus stop in the heat of the day after we checked out to give it back, and everything was there. Thank you so much!!!
Cons: Kitchen needs a deep cleaning.

Pros: Friendly Staff trying their best to cheer you up from Gloomy weather !
