Food was very good. The gardens were beautiful. Staff was friendly and multi lingual. Rooms were very nice. Pity we could only stay there 2 our of 4 days as we didn't make reservations far enough in advance.

We walked up from the beach to stop and have a beer and possibly stay there eventually ( had already booked a place for 2 nights) but the lady at the front immediately said they would not serve us because we weren't staying there. What a turn off ! The patio and restaurant were not busy, maybe 6 people. We...

We started our trip around Ecuador in this place. The perfect place to unwind from daily life. They made a little paradise of it, with nice cabins with hammocks in front spread around in a beautiful tropical garden. They paid attention to little details. Staff is attentive. The place is a little outside town with its own hammock places at...

We loved our time at this place during our recent honeymoon. All the staff are lovely - so helpful and obviously love working with and meeting people from all over the world. The layout of the place, by the sea, in beautiful gardens with your own cabin is very nicely done and the whole hosteria is very peaceful. It is...

when you arrive at puerto lopez, your first impression is not good... The town looks as if it's been devastated by a tsunami. Until you arrive at hosteria Mandala, a real haven. The place is really nice, clean and friendly. The food is great. The rooms are large and clean, and the garden is beautiful. It really is a pleasure...

After a long bike ride throughout Ecuador, we were looking for a quiet, natural place, which we found I fell in Love with... I really recommend this place!!! Native Ecuadorian nature, next to the beach, walking distance from the town and the best rooms!!!

Best vacations ever! We arrieved at night and very tired but the owners were really nice and gave us our cabin key right away, plus they told us we were free to use whenever we need the safe-deposit box that belongs to our cabin. We read some reviews about some people's experiences with the food rate in Mandala's Restaurant, which...

Imagine a place where an open air museum showing a complete Humpback skeleton greets you as you arrive in Puerto López. Not only this is cool, The whole place is whimsical as you start discovering its secrets with a little help of Aurelio who guides you through the maze of Hosteria Mandala. There´s a musical instruments room, a library, a...
