Some things remain consistent even while changing.
I’m staying at the Manso, tonight (sept 2011) I love it here (see pics below to c why), the staff is always attentive , always friendly (they give the service you used to get every where but can no longer find anywhere) and I can wake up and see the light hit the Guayas , have my coffee, eat breakfast ,look at the latest art exhibit …in my pajamas, never having left the building… I’ve spent days where I ate breakfast Lunch and dinner here ( a whole six dollar tab) but anywhere I could want to go is more or less in walking distance … I have peace here…here I have air conditioning .
Not only that but *,Internet , cable t.v, and lounge areas on every floor, I flopped over on a sofa bed right now … Willies getting a massage Rocky’s editing my articles.. In the lime room… All the rooms are either color or nature themed.. And Ricardo the owner is walking around taking pictures, constantly changing…improving and rearranging, but that’s why I like it here it’s a good place to rest before you get to wherever your going.
K, bye for now—pj
* not all of the rooms have these amenities , the dorm rooms are cheaper , and simpler .
