Jose was quick to respond and helpful with information. Although he said to expect $10 taxi fare from the airport, the driver we ended up with quoted us $5. We took his card and hired him to drive us to Puerto Lopez for $40, 2 days later. The cabana was pretty clean and basic, however the kitchen was unusable (no cooking implements, cupboards smelled like mildew). There was air conditioning that worked, clean sheets, and 3 small bottles of drinking water in the fridge. The view was fantastic and the infinity pool was nice. The wifi was free but slow and spotty. The location was wonderful, an easy walk to the beach, restaurants and the Supermaxi (supermarket). There was also a large toy store right next to the Supermaxi, which was perfect for us, since we hadn't found any decent stocking stuffers and it was already December 23rd. We tried to extend our stay a day, but the cabana we were in was already booked. They offered us a suite, but it was $180 so we declined. They let us hang out, using the wifi in the common area after checkout and even held our bags while we went to get lunch and until we were able to make other arrangements.
Muy lindo todo y la atencion muy calida, muy bien cuidado el apto y la vista es hermosa
This place is really nice and idyllic. The location and the view is like a picture so nice that it have to be seen.
Nice touch with variation of breakfast for each day.
Friendly host, nice people.
First: This is not a hotel; the entrance is locked and if you arrive after midnight, nobody will open you.
The listing description is absolutely incorrect. We got a small, shabby room without any view at all, no kitchen, no privacy, noisy; people walking over our "balcony" day and night.
The neighborhood is so far OK. But high walls, barred windows and entrances are proof that thieves are everywhere and we were stolen a large amount of money in the room. Of course the video camera which was directed towards our room in the first floor "did not work that day".
Breakfast was served in the room. As there was no table, we were supposed to eat it on the floor.
Jose was a great host, extremely quick response and very helpful with directions and assistance at this suite. Ecuador was a great experience for us and Jose's location was ideal on the beach, close to shopping and restaurants, and very quiet. Jose's team was very helpful in getting us settled in - assisting with luggage and operating the AC. The apartment was very nice and well equipped with a great view of the ocean. We met wonderful people and shared great conversations in the amazing infinity pool.
The breakfast was a nice treat served poolside.
Thank you Jose for the nice break in Manta!!!!
very good communication. very ponctual. the appartment was clean when Jose left it. a 5 stars guest
It was a pleasure to meet and accommodate Jose, we are hopping we could accommodate Jose next time he is in town. I highly reccomend him.
José tuvo problemas con su viaje en avión, por lo que no llegó a Porto. Nos dio mucha pena por no conocer a José, pero esperamos tener la oportunidad de recibir lo un día .
Jose and his family have been wonderful guests! they are very clean, polite, respectful, communicative and absolutely friendly, it has been a pleasure for me to host them and I really hope to see them again in the near future, highly recommended to all airbnb hosts!!
We thank Jose and his family for choosing our apartment for their stay in Florence. He communicated very well with us and took good care of our apartment. We recommend him to all the hosts of Airbnb.
