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
