So this was a last minute stop for my boyfriend and myself.

After some mechanical issues on our way to Manta we called so inquire about availability at a near by location and were happy to have received accommodations. The room was beautiful and exceeded our expectations after a long day the king size bed and large shower provided a great comfort and relaxation. Althought room service would have been nice, shortly after the check in we went to their restaurant. The ambiance was nice and it was quiet the service wasn't anything spectacular considering there was only us in the restaurant but perhaps it was more of a kitchen issue not the servers as we had very friendly staff. The chairs however had seen better days and considering I have worked in hospitality and in the food industry most of my career I think it's a far stretch to boast a gastronomy restaurant.

The complimentary breakfast was okay, but lacked variety and since my boyfriend is diabetic and a picky eater there wasn't much for him to enjoy. The staff was however very nice and even carried the coffee right to our room!

Since we still had some time to spare before checkout we decided to try walking the beach but unfortunately due to proximity to a fishing factory there was dead fish litering the shore. We moved onto their 2 pools which were okay not very deep and a touch small but refreshing considering the hot weather. I will say though that some upkeep might be needed for the outside chairs and grounds.

The hotel was very nice and comfy, súper clean and the service was very good, they have a bar on the sand that I really enjoy, the bar only open until 9pm but you can go to Jungle on Playas downtown, like it!

It was 2 January at the beginning of this year did not know about this place but I invited my uncles.
The place is an hour and a half from Guayaquil, when you arrive at the place I thought IT was very nice since it was a PRIVATE beach
I realized that the place was well organized by the municipality of playas
there were people in charge of the the bathrooms and dressing rooms who gave INSTRUCTIONS for the use of THE public services.
After enjoying the beach we went to eat. I ate an ARROZ MARINERO WHICH cost of $8.00, a reasonable cost
Every time I visit a place, I like to try the typical dishes and enjoy spending time with my family.
