My wife and I spent January/February at this condo, including a week visit by my daughter and fiance. The owners were wonderful to work with and Jaime, the young man who manages the apartment, was an amazing resource for anything you needed and became a friend during our stay. Parking was available and secure, but a car is not needed -taxi's and shuttles were abundant and very inexpensive - not to mention driving is quite an adventure. We hired drivers for trips to Cuenca, Inca ruins, Guayaquil, Montanita (a must side trip) and a other side trips. The drivers (arranged by Jaime) turned out to not only be wonderful folks, but terrific tour guides and just very fun to hang out with.
The condo is spacious, immaculately maintained, secure and could not have been a better location - Right on the Malecon, on the beach and even next door to a Texas BBQ for those days we were feeling a little homesick. The balcony is an amazing part of the experience. It is enormous and the views are spectacular. Very appropriate for kids of all ages. Other than there being a lot of places in this world we have not yet visited, this would be a perfect location for a winter trip each year.
