  • Yes, I could... And those who disembark at the small pier of the Pestana Ecuador hotel, turn left and there it remains even think it is. However, just turn right, go after the reception buildings and, immediately, face a very different reality that, by degradation and filth, patent on structures and lack or inoperability of infrastructure, denotes people's slouchs and lack of responsibility of the hotel group. The Chapel itself, near the hotel reception, was in a pitiful state and, unless better opinion, is part of the perimeter to the responsibility of the hotel group. Likewise the way to the Landmark of Ecuador and this monument, symbolic and historical, might not be abandoned as they are, and at risk of losing themselves completely. I didn't have time to get more stuck in the islet but these impressions remained, in addition to retaining the sympathy of the improvised guides who accompanied us, the stunning view of Marco do Ecuador for the sector that, from the north goes from the spring to the west, and the beauty of Praia Café . These positive aspects were sufficient to realise that, if there was the will of the competent authorities, together with the heads of the hotel group, and involving the small local population in the necessary sustainable development projects, the islet could be a paradise and an example for the rest of the country.

  • I don't like being a captive hotel guest and despite the amazing location, there is only one hotel on the island and they don't treat people very nicely despite the outrageous rates.
  • The most relaxing place on earth with a very beautiful beach. The blow hole I saw too was a bit scary but beautiful. Everything was on point there. I enjoyed my stay there
