Vistamar Ayampe is such a special place and genuinely felt like a second home to us all. Mateo is an AMAZING host and truly goes above and beyond, the staff is incredible, friendly, and attentive, and the meals were some of the best food we experienced in Ecuador. Could not recommend this place more and cannot wait to return here in the future. - Sourced from Google Reviews

Could not have hoped or dreamed of a better experience! Mateo, Cesar, and Juan are unbelievable hosts and seemingly have every connection in the book. They are unbelievably welcoming, hospitable, and helpful. I could not recommend a better place to get away / vacation! - Sourced from Google Reviews

The most wonderful experience - spent 5 weeks here with many friends coming in and out from the States, worked remotely, and surfed every day. Couldn’t recommend it more, Matteo and his team are extremely kind and accommodating. - Sourced from Google Reviews
