I have stayed in other vacation rentals in this area of Ecuador and this is the best one I have encountered. It was clean, easy to find once you knew where you were supposed to be going, and steps to the beach. I was not real sure what to expect as the location of the unit was not showing up as actually on the beach on this website even though the photos showed the beach. But it was at the beach. The condo complex appears to be fairly new. It was off season so there were not many people around. They guards at the front entrance were friendly and helpful. Shirley, the manager, had someone meet me to get me settled into the unit. She wasn't able to do so as she was laid up with a broken leg. But she was available if I needed her. The bed was comfortable. The internet work really good. I was not able to get the TV working and I was not sure if I needed to pay more money for that as the guy who actually met me at the condo to check me in had said something about taking a number to some store and paying money. Clearer instructions are needed for TV use or payment. The kitchen had the basics for cooking but was lacking soap for washing dishes and hand soap. It was the same in the bathroom, clean, but lacking soap. I guess I was supposed to bring my own soap? The "crazy ants" that are common in beach areas were present in the kitchen area and even though I really tried to clean well, they were always around. There was a nice pool outside but is was a cooler month so I did not use it, but I did touch the water and it did not seem real cold and several kids were playing in the water. As this was a 3rd floor unit, that made it nice because I was able to leave the windows open at night time to listen to the ocean waves as they put me to sleep. I certainly will try to stay here again when I come back to this part of Ecuador.
