Welcome to The Cottages by the Sea, a garden paradise on the shores of San Alejo, Ecuador. Nestled between San Jacinto and San Clemente, about halfway between Manta and Bahia de Caraquez, The Cottages are the perfect place to explore some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Ecuador.
Walk through our hand carved gates and you will find 8 fully-furnished one and two bedroom cottages, surrounding a crystal clear pool. Swim up to our in-pool table and chairs for a game of backgammon, read a book in a hammock, or take a siesta on a pool lounger.. you are here to relax.
Ready for lunch? You can order from our poolside menu, venture out to one of the many local restaurants, or whip up a meal in your fully equipped kitchen.
Don't forget to stop by our honor bar for an ice cold beer or a soda.
