WOW!!!! What a GREAT experience!!! My family and I stayed for 5 days and wish it were more. Keith, Marilyn & the entire staff made us all feel like family. The house is excellent, very comfortable & has everything we needed. Everyone went above and beyond any expectations I had. Thank You Guys for a very memorable experience. We will be back.....
Es la casa ideal en el lugar ideal! La casa es amplia y cómoda, la galería también es grande y muy disfrutable. El aire acondicionado, el agua caliente, el wi fi y la TV satelital funcionaron muy bien. Las camas son cómodas. Marilyn, la dueña, es muy amable y está siempre accesible. La pasamos genial!
We stayed 5 days. Very nice place and great employees! The owners were on a "much needed vacation" as we were told. Sorry we missed them. They left their employees in charge. They were wonderful and helpful with everything. They will get you transportation, suggestions for things and are spot on in helping you! They helped to arrange a very nice taxi to pick us up and take us back to the airport. Rooms were very clean and accommodating. It is a pleasant walk to the beach (about 5 minutes). Nice way to become acquainted with the locals. It is sometimes noisy with the highway being close by. Breakfast was good and different each day. A lot of young people stay there as most are there for the surfing. The village itself is quiet and sleepy but has some nice restaurants. It was a very pleasant stay.
La Buena Vida is amazing! The place is really nice. It feels like home. Marilyn and Keith are really welcoming and gave us all the help we needed to have a perfect trip in Ayampe and also Ecuador. This is a place to make new friends, surf everyday (if you need some tips, Keith is your guy!) and enjoy the simple life of Ayampe! One week and you want to stay there forever.
If you want to feel at home in a foreign country, stay at La Buena Vida. I love it here. Definitely going to make this a regular vacation destination.
Excellent experience and stay. Great rooms with comfortable beds, AC, plenty of hot water with great pressure. The owners and staff are wonderful and go beyond helpful. Breakfasts are great and included. Highly recommended.
I had a great stay in Ayampe - mainly due to staying in such a great Hotel. The hosts welcome you in almost as if you were part of their family. Based on my observations of the other hotels in town, this is by far the best (and most modern). I would definitely come back and stay in this hotel!
Marilyn and Keith we're wonderful hosts - friendly, generous and helped organize activities and dining options during our stay. Ayampe is such a friendly community and we truly felt at home. We would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a comfortable place to stay - whether it's to surf, hang out on the beach, or to explore Ayampe, Puerto Lopez and the surrounding area.
What a great place to stay. Marilyn and Keith are amazing hosts and the place is beautiful. You definitely feel like part of the family in Ayampe. Lots of excellent places to eat and things to do. I hope to get back down there again one day!
