I can't begin to express how much I liked the Hostal Amalur. I booked it on a whim when I was coming to Canoa without realizing it was Carnival week. The whole town filled up within 2 days. Initially the Hostal Amalur only had availability for 2 nights for me so I set out to find a new spot...I returned... More

My friends and I came to Canoa with only one nights reservation and ended up staying for a week. The owners were happy to accommodate us and even upgraded our rooms when their were extras available. They were very lovely people who spoke great English and were happy to accommodate all of our questions and even made great suggestions towards... More

The owners of Amalur go out of their way to make you feel at home! They care for you as a person, not just a customer, and if you have kids, their toddler daughter will love the playmates :) All around very comfortable stay with my husband and 1yr old. PS- Did I mention they cook amazing food?

It would be a mistake NOT to stay at this hostel. Truly a must if you travel to Canoa. The owners were the nicest, most welcoming people that my group has met in Ecuador. The accommodations are beautiful and the food is not to be missed.

I stayed at Amalur for 4 nights after Carnaval. I must have asked a thousand questions on what to do and where to find things and the owners were always more than accommodating. The food was amazing, definitely try the spanish breakfast!

Amalur offers probably the best accommodation in Canoa. Although it's set back a little bit behind the beach, but it's very central, especially since Canoa is just a small village. The rooms are nice and cosy but could need a chair or a small table to put things on. But they are in a very good condition, everything is quite... More

Undoubtfully Amalur is the best choice if you are looking for a place to stay in Canoa. We stayed there a wonderful week, enjoying our time on the paradise beach of the ecuadorian coast. Lorena and Diego made a really cosy and familiar place where you can relax and taste a great food...or just have a cup of delicious coffee... More

Great Spanish food, lovely breakfasts, close to the beach but not as noisy as it is just away from all the activity whilst still being 5 minutes away from it, nice rooms and the couple who ran it were lovely, helpful and spoke both English and Spanish, lovely environment to hang out in, highly recommended.

Im not sure if canoa is the place to be for me, a small town with lot of young party people, maybe i'm to old ;) But the Amalur and the nice couple behind make it a perfect stay. If you are ever around - take a look, drink an amazing coffee and eat something from the really amazing meals... More

I cannot begin to say how wonderful our stay at Amalur was. We had a great ocean breeze that came into our room (room 8), cooling it down during the day and keeping it comfortable at night. The rooms are immaculate, and while they're simple, they're very comfortable and have everything you could ever need. Amalur has a great rooftop... More
