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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I liked everything.
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.
