    My wife and I had an outstanding three night visit to this charming little hotel. Initially we had planned on only two nights. It is centrally located, exceedingly clean, and the proprietors are wonderfully helpful. Best of all were the amazing breakfasts.

    The hotel décor is lovely and the amenities and service excellent. The bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom excellent with toiletries and a hot, refreshing shower. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

    We took a cab from the airport. It's the easiest way. Just show the driver the address, it works whether he speaks English or not.

    Additionally, about Casa San Rafael in Cuenca, Ecuador: There is no transport to a cruise-port, since there is none. Cuenca is high in the Andes, so no cruises. The airport is close by, a dollar or so by taxi. Enjoy.

    If they do not have one, I am sure they can refer you to a company that would take you to the port. They are very helpful.
