I stayed at Cielo Azul, but had 2 meals at El Marques and examined the property. The food was pretty good. The service nothing short of atrocious. The hotel has a nice size swimming pool, facing the road and surrounded by the hotel building. The room rate quoted to me, for a single person, in May, was $61, breakfast and... More

El Marques is said to be the nicest hotel in Atacames and it may well be, and that's very sad. Old rooms, out-dated decor, tiny uncomfortable bathrooms... And for $120 a night. Clean and safe, however.

The style of the hotel, rooms and restaurant is similar to a Hilton or other chain hotel in the United States. The furniture and decor in the rooms were well-kept and everything worked in the rooms. The restaurant is... More

This is definitely the best hotel at Atacames beach. Hotel staff is very friendly and try their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are large but they are not very homey. Breakfast is so so ... Restaurant has very limited lunch/dinner options but there are many options in walking distance from hotel. There is small ice... More

My Ecuadorian family and I liked El Marques hotel. We rented a "quintuple" room and we were all happy with the view and the room cleanness. The hotel had wifi included which was a huge plus and cable TV. We were able to walk to the beach and around with no troubles and getting back inside the hotel was convenient... More
