Great one bedroom apartment. The grounds were lovely, the proximity to the historic district was a huge plus, and the river was the icing on the cake. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Did a City tour one day and a tour out of the City to a waterfall near Giron and on to a lake in San Fernando....

The management and staff of the hotel are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They became friends of our families during our stay. We rented the river suite which has a...

Great place to stay right at the riverbank between the old and the new town. Big and clean apartments with a good equiped kitchen. Really nice and helpful staff. We had a wonderful time!!! The adventure agency is right next door and offers great trips to the surounding areas. Highly recommended for rock climbers! !!

We truly enjoyed the river and the hospitality of Samara and Xajier. Beautiful Interior Courtyard with lots of indiginous plants. English is well spoken here if you want to trouble Xajier who has absolutely nothing to do as Samara does all the work while Xajier rides his mountain bike and daydreams a lot.

The location is just perfect, walking distance from downtown and next to the tomebamba river. The apartments are equipped with everything you need for long o short visit, the owners lives on site and they are always willing to help you so this plus the beautiful gardens just make you fell like home. But the best part: they accept pets!

Javier and his staff were friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay. We even went on some of the local tours that they offer which were also great. Rooms and kitchens were large and provided everything we needed. Great location next to the city center and the beautiful Tome Bamba river.
