Hostal Macaw is a charming mid-range hotel recently opened in a peaceful suburb of Guayaquil. The 13 simply furnished rooms each have private bathrooms with hot water, A/C cable T.V and hair dryers either with king-size or twin beds.
The owners, Rodrigo and Fanny spent 25 years living and working in the Galapagos. They strive to operate Hostal Macaw in an environmentally friendly manner. Not a single tree was cut down in building the hostal - all of the wood used in construction is cedar from the Galapagos, an introduced tree that has become a plague on the islands. Biodegradable products are used where possible.
Hostal Macaw has a small garden with a great variety of plants for use in the hotel's cuisine, including passion flower, pineapple and cacao.
Guests staying for more than two nights have the use of a small swimming pool in the block next door.
