Pros: Carlos is super friendly! The house is close to Los Frailes beach. We would advise to bring some groceries to Machalilla if you plan to cook your own meals. There are only a few small shops in the village..
Cons: We had a great stay! The bugs didn't bother us that much, we consider it part of the climate...Just quickly sweep the floor every day...The road was actually more quite at night than I would have expected based on some reviews...
Pros: Super lovely hostel owner who knows a lot about Ecuador, nice rooms, close to the national park and the beach of the village, cute dog Caipirinha
Cons: loud street
Pros: Carlos was so welcoming and nice. He told us things we could do near of Machalilla. The house is really near of the beach and it takes like 5 minutes to go to Los Frailes.
Pros: Carlos, the host is a super nice guy! As being a former mountaineering guide, he has lots of tips to offer - not only what to do right in the area but also in other parts of Ecuador. The hostel kitchen is basic but has pretty much all you need to cook a basic meal. Carlos is rescuing dogs and takes care of them on his property - but no worries they are all super nice!
Cons: The location makes it a bit difficult to buy supplies such as groceries. The next real supermarket is in Puerto Lopez (10km), but it is reachable by taxi.
Pros: Carlos is an awesome and very helpful host, with great tips about where to go and what to do. The rooms are quiet and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The hostel is just a 5min walk to the Los Frailes park entrance and has a great view of the Machalilla village beach which is just 2 blocks away
Pros: Good location near frailes beach. Host was very nice despite poor room conditions and offered the use of his paddleboards as some compensation.
Cons: Showers were cold and minimal pressure. Various insects
Pros: Kitchen was filled with everything necessary to cook. Location was walking distance away from entry to park. On main road making it easy to grab transportation- buses, taxis, tuk tuks and friendly people who offered rides. Sleepy fishmans town with quiet beach and close access to agua blanca. Carlos the owner is very kind, helpful and knows the area very well. Understand that this is a humble and easy going location- for easy going and humble people.
Pros: Juan Carlos was always available for everything we needed, he’d always help us with recommendations on how to get to places or what to do around Machalilla. I loved the views from the house and the fact that it was very close to the main street so it was very easy to just go out and grab a cab or the bus. The house colors were pretty and the bed was confortable. We could use the kitchen so that was great.
Cons: We had a very big bug issue while we were there, the kitchen was filled with bugs at night and unfortunately, so was our room and bathroom. I woke up with bugs in our bed and that was a terrible experience. The owner cleaned the room and bathroom one night (out of the 5 we were there) and gave us bug spray but we still had issues. The shower was a joke, having long hair i’d get very frustrated, it was never solved. We were told this was unusual, but the truth is the bugs were there every night, and we were never offered a discount to compensate for the bugs or the useless shower.
Pros: The owner Carlos is very friendly, good recommendations for nearby restaurants and visits Hot shower Good location close to Los Prailes beach and Agua Blanca
Cons: The kitchen could be cleaner Very noisy from the road Mosquitoes

Cons: The room we were given at first had a strange smell and the shower wasn't working properly. In fact, part of the room and some of our stuff got all wet after taking a shower. After showing this to the owner and urging him to give us a different room, he made arrangements for us to stay in a nicer room.
Pros: The view from the room was incredible and the hammocks were a nice touch.
Cons: All operations were run by the owner who is a one man show. At first he tried to nickel and dime us for every thing ($2.50 per day per person to use the kitchen), but after my wife stormed off he gave it to us "gratis" and was pleasant to us the rest of the trip.
