The waterfront or shall I say beachfront views are amazing. The roaring if the waves breaking I the beach and the constant cool ocean breeze made for a great night's sleep. The seafood in the restaurant tasted "just caught" fresh. The bar's selection was more substantial than we've seen in other Ecuadorian beach communities, but also a bit pricier.

Our hotel room faced the ocean and had amazing views of the sunset. There were even several whale sightings that occurred when we visited. The service was wonderful (thanks Roberto, Jorge and Gloria!) and the pollo a la plancha was delicious.
