Kate and Emma ended up unknowingly buying the same type of alpaca jumper, which was the same or almost the same as the one I bought from the same place last November!

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rizzo Guayaquil
No wifi, no change for large bills, no English in a hotel with international clients. If you want change to pay your bill they point you to the bank.
Great location, but understanding the client needs is poorly understood.
If you want wifi you need to go to the accounting office and share the desk with the accounting land, very nice but crowed and no privacy.

Would I stay here again, yes even with the above issues it is near the water and some clubs the I enjoyed, read about one in my blog.
But understand the problems, and try to keep smiling.
Nautijesse's over all rating 2.
The rating system is based on 1-5 five being the best. I live in hotel almost 6 maybe 8 months out of the year, things I look for can be read in the blog Nautijesse;s hotel rating guild.
Keep searching and enjoy1day.
