The view is so amazing and right on the beach! Our room was clean and breakfast was yummy! Super close to everything! The staff was very helpful and accommodating! They helped arrange a trip to Monticristi to see the museum and hat makers!

Took an unexpected detour in my travels and ended up in Manta for the evening. I picked this hotel while on the road and the price I was given at the desk upon arrival was less than what the 3rd party booking sites offered. The room was clean and nice, with a lovely view of the ocean from the balcony....

No restaurant, no bar, pathetic rooms, all condo's/bldgs around are under construction due to the horrible earthquake last april. We saw 2 guys that did everything, checked you in, helped with bags, made your breakfast, cleaned, etc... they worked very hard. The management should be ashamed of themselves, we asked for a couple of beers, about 25 minutes later one...

This beautiful hotel overlooks the Pacific ocean, with one of the most amazing terrace views one can find in Manta. You can swim in the infinity pool and feel totally submerged inside of an overwhelming amount of nature that makes you forget you are in middle of the most upcoming neighborhood of the city. Supermarket, banks, car rentals, restaurants and...

We had a beautiful comfortable room with a great patio on the ground floor. We were visiting friends up the coast and needed to catch an early plane to Quito. The staff was very gracious and helped arrange a cab at 6 am. We were very pleased until we tried to get to bed early at 10 pm and sleep....

Manta is a very nice city devastated by a large earthquake last April. I like to travel to places others might avoid to help the city or area rebuild itself with tourist dollars. This is one of those places. This hotel has been repaired and remodeled after the earthquake. It is clean and well maintained. The view from the hotel...

We LOVED this hotel. Oasis in a recovering city. Although there are buildings in the area under construction due to the earthquake, this place is clean, well cared for, steady & untouched. Great rooms, strong a/c & fridge in the room. The view is spectacular, lounge chairs by the pool. Beautiful, quiet, peaceful sitting area. Our daughter spent half the...

We stayed for almost a week at this hotel and the people were kind, The earthquake left them with damage they continued to fix during our stay. The buildings around the hotel were really beat up (so there were workers there during the day also). The pool is nice. Don't plan to do laps, but I enjoyed lounging in it....

The first thing that strikes you when you enter the hotel courtyard is the beautiful swimming pool which looks directly out into the Pacific ocean. That swung it for us and we booked the not-so-cheap cabana for two couples. We had another couple join us part way through our stay and they were unfortunately overcharged on their exit.
