I have just returned from a weeks stay at Tsafiki Hosteria where I had a wonderful time served up to me by the wonderful staff at this delightful Hosteria. The food was by far the best I have had at any place I have ever stayed. The service was great everyone catered to me and made me feel special. Lori, the owner and manager, speaks both English and Spanish and is very professional and competent. I will certainly return if I have the opportunity next year.
If you ever had a dream of living in paradise then tsafiki is your destination. Starting with a beutiful private beach that lasts for too many miles to walk. And amazing cabana style rooms all looking out to the beach. A beutiful pool area with hot tub lovely to soak in the evening with a cool cocktail served by Lori the owner. The kitchen is open all day with a mix off local specialities.. Its the best stay we had in ecuador. And we couldnt thank Lori enough for her great help in planning our activities in the area and caring for all our needs.
We are a family of 5 and stayed 7 nights at Tsafiki. Lori could not be more helpful. The hotel is super clean with lots of little extras which make your stay more comfortable: free drinking water in the rooms, topped up each day. Free beach towels & pool towels. Insect repellent and insect spray in the rooms and common areas. TV room with games & DVDs in case of rain, free balls and body boards for the beach - Lori thought of everything. Fantastic location right on the beach, great pool area with jacuzzi, comfortable loungers, friendly & helpful staff. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. The food is tasty, awesome breakfasts (lots of choice and large helpings, different juice every day). Definitely the best option in the area and we have stayed at several places nearby.
Tsafiki was amazing 5 years but now it has gotten so much better. Host is great, staff is great and especially the food. We spent 8 days with family and friends for Christmas and New Year and we did not want to come home. It is my home away from home.
Lori, Jim and their friendly staff provide a remarkable experience. Top notch hospitality, service and food. Location can't be beat - quiet, private and with easy access to the huge beach out front as well as surfing and fishing along this section of coastline.
Closest airport is Manta but not convenient unless you are doing other travels in the country. Next best is Guayaquil which is 3 hours. Transportation in taxi is $100 each way. I can arrange. By bus is about $10. Let me know... More
Closest airport is Manta but not convenient unless you are doing other travels in the country. Next best is Guayaquil which is 3 hours. Transportation in taxi is $100 each way. I can arrange. By bus is about $10. Let me know your plans and I can try to resolve any transportation issues. Prices will also vary depending on the number of persons. The $100 I quote is for up to 4 people.
