Service level. Very cold and invariably beginning on a negative note - whether it be an early check-in or a late check-out (one hour) or a slightly early breakfast (15 mins) or even getting a taxi. Everything seemed to be an effort for the staff and even if something got done eventually, it was almost an afterthought. In a small...

We are extremely happy that you loved the location of our Inn but sorry to hear that you did not feel any warmth from your visit to the Drake Inn. We did explain to you, prior to your arrival, that by law (Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador) we are not allowed to book any tours or ferries, because we are...

We reserved a quad room which turned out to be two separate rooms plus a bathroom and a little alcove. It was quite comfortable. The rooms were very clean and we had plenty of space. Breakfast was quite good and comes with the room. Free WiFi in the livingroom – it didn’t work in our own room. Drake Inn is...

A little apart from the "city center", the Drake Inn has a great terrasse with a very nice view. We were very impressed by the warm welcome, the reliability of the person in charge. Always smiling, helpful, he and his wife made our stay very nice and pleasant. The owner made sure we had a taxi at 5 am for...

We loved our stay at the Drake inn. The owners were wonderful hosts. The helped us with Taxis and advice. They had a very safe, comfortable and clean environment. There were some common sitting areas that were lovely to relax and view the bay. I would recommend this inn as it was a reasonable price with everything we needed and...

The place is incredible. The owner is even better. The rooms were a little bit small, and the linen wasn't white, but, the location -just in front of the seaside- is unplayable. And the owner and friendly staff is unplayable too. They allowed us to do a late check out, they gave us an intrude ruin to the island and...

The owners, Carlos and Ann, were very friendly and helpful answering our questions and providing tips on what to see. Our family of four adults and two seven year old twins rented a family suite and a superior double room for four nights. Both rooms had access to a terrace. The superior double room had access to the rooftop terrace...

This was the first stop in our tour of Ecuador and we discovered Drake Inn on Trip Advisor. The owners, Carlos & Ann, welcomed us and treated us like family in their own home. They were wonderful people and have a wonderful home for guests. We had two adults and two children (10 & 12) and had a great stay...

We spent 4 nights at the Drake Inn at the beginning of our trip to South America. The hotel was clean and the breakfast set out on the amazing roof terrace overlooking the beach. Would have liked a better view from the room but it was ok. Would definitely recommend. Did a boat trip and lots of walking around. Danny...

Danny (sp?) was fantastic. Very warm, friendly, and went the extra mile for us. Beautiful rooftop terrace, overlooking the beach. The hotel is sort of at the far end of the strip, but you will want to take a cab from the pier (which is a was from the main part of town). The room was kind of small.
