We booked this apartment for our week stay in Guayaquil. It was my first time visiting, my husband grew up in the city. Sadly, on our first night we had the earthquake but the owners were quick to get in touch with us to make sure we were ok and safe. The building was great in making sure everything was safe before letting everyone re-enter and many tests were done the filing days to ensure safety. Sadly the pier was closed for most of the week but the last few days were were able to enjoy the wonderful restaurants and food. The Wyndham Hotel remained open through the week and the staff there was also remarkable. The pool was wonderful and very relaxing and the building quiet. Despite the earthquake we had a wonderful time here and the location was great when going to the city, or tourist attractions. The pier itself, once reopened, was wonderful too. I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to stay here again in the future.
