When I arrived, both rooftop room and attic room were available. Liked them both but picked the attic room. Had to go up the spiral staircase with my luggage but the room was just beautiful: secluded and very "Flowers in the Attic".
The kitchen is fully-stocked, and there are a lot of sitting spaces. There is a pool and a bar but it looks like they only open the bar in high season.
I stayed 2 nights taking 3 showers but never had hot water. I didn't know the hot water was not running the first night so I told María José the next day, and she called a technician. He just never came and I had to take a shower with cold water.
I also had a problem with the toiler paper holder; it kept tearing one sheet. I tried "under" and "over" position but it didn't work. Eventually, I took the toilet paper out, and put it on top of the toilet tank.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay here, and I would probably stay here again if I come back to Puerto Ayora.
