My friends and I, a group of 5, travelled from Mompiche to Playas in one day on the bus. It was a very long day and we were exhausted, when we arrived at our place (not this place) it was horrible, dirty and cockroach infested, we had to stay one night but we left first thing in the am. We...

An Excellent  Accommodations  Choice  For  Playas Folks  who  have stayed  here  attested to its excellent  beach and  food location, security, spotless clean hostel and accommodating  Owner .

A very nice Hostal. The rooms are nice, super, super clean. If you can, stay in the room above the office, which has a small balcony. Perfect for sipping on wine in the evenings and watching the people go by. The air conditioner in this room is a little noisy, but is perfect for drowning out the street noise. The...

I read about this hostal on Facebook and decided to give it a try. When I arrived, I realized that I had walked by it many times in the past and had eaten dinner right next door to it. But because of the layout and the lack of a sign other than a name painted on the wall, I didn't...

We loved our stay at Promenade, so much so that we ended up spending an extra night in Playas. Josue and his whole family were welcoming, helpful, and so much fun (we ended up going out for drinks with Josue and his brother Tomas), and the facility is inviting and spotless. We would highly recommend staying here!

We've stayed in the Promenade 3 times over the last year and a bit. It served as our base of operations as we were scouting out and eventually buying a beachfront property just outside of Playas. The Promenade is located one short block up from the beach and close to the main thoroughfare for shopping, etc. Rooms are functional and...

Clean, modern, great location, nice people. This place is much nicer than what I think of when I hear "Hostal". Centrally located one block from pretty much everything. Narcissa and her son Josue are very nice and helpful. I stayed a total of 7 nights during 2 different weeks in October 2013. Great price. Comfortable bed. The only thing which...

“Ecuadorians are laid back and easy going generally and, they love their music and to party. During the high season, especially on weekends and holidays, celebrating can go on until the wee hours of the morning. If you prefer a little peace and quiet, Ask Narcissa or Hosue for a "quiet room". These are located towards the rear of the building and quieter”
