We booked in to the Hotel on arriving back to Coca unexpectedly, a day early from a jungle trip. We did not want to use the Heliconias again as we weren't that impressed. The size and central location makes the hotel easy to find, and if any doubt, just look out for a naked man statue mounted high up on...

Very well located, it is a rather large hotel so you can`t really miss it! The TV stations are only local, but the Wi-Fi proved to be pretty good & stable. Friendly front desk service and good food in the restaurant. I stayed in a woorden "cabaña" style room, behind the hotel in the garden; but pay a bit more...

The Wi Fi was spotty and the breakfast that come with the room was skimpy....toast and fruit one day, egg, toast and fruit the second day. We stored luggage while on our...

Located a few blocks from the river. Restaurants & beautiful garden area on site, clean with hot showers. We stored some of our luggage with them while we spent 5 days in the rain forrest. After our return we discovered someone opened luggage and took a cell phone. So I would suggest locking all luggage before putting in their storage...

The hotel grounds are beautiful! The courtyard of the hotel has beautiful plants, decorations, and animals (monkeys!) and is a lovely place to sit outside and get away from the busy streets of Coca. The room itself was decidedly average. It was wood paneled (presumably to match the wooden exterior, and pretty dark. The bed wasn't lumpy, but it wasn't...

We stayed here for one night after getting an 8 hour public bus from Quito ahead of our journey into the Amazon.

We (couple, 41 &50) stayed at Hotel Auca for one night in May 2014. We paid $55 a night for a cabana with private bathroom and air-conditioning. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also big and clean. The cabana had a small balcony overlooking the garden; we saw monkeys, agouti, and turtles in the garden....
