Some things to improve such as tv, cable and bathrooms. Breakfast could be better, I mean the hotel is in the middle of a very nice beach and we never had a traditional beach breakfast, but included in the price of the room as this is not a cheap hotel.

While the restaurant food is good is not commensurate with the prices charged His it is true that the reaturant is categorized is not consistent with food prices , is achieved outside of equal or better quality at half price

Hotel el Marques is a nice hotel, probably the best one in Atacames, seafront, nice rooms, good breakfast and good size swimming pool. The customer service is bad for this kind of hotel, you feel like "one more", when I like to feel like a customer. The price is ridiculous even for a nice hotel, let me remind you that... More

The place is nice, common areas clean and well cared for. Rooms clean and cozy although beds could be bigger. The staff could do a whole lot better: they messed up the room we had asked for and took their time to make it right. Food is pretty expensive for the prices around town.

Stayed here a couple of nights while visiting in Esmeraldas. I would not choose this one for holidays on the beach since it is a bit overpriced for a solo traveller. It is shiny and clean, but the air in my room was not fresh even though I got the windows open as soon as I got in. Bed and... More

If you like the real crowed and noise, the Marques is your place. Make sure to get there in the high season; in August. The hotel is as uninspired as a hotel can be. Small rooms, the pool without any shadow, overcrowded, the dining room as nice as a waiting hall in a third class airport. I would even not... More

I stayed at the Marqués hotel for over a week because of a business trip. The rooms were good, the gym was not really a gym, and the service was average. I kind of thought a bit more of the place than what it really is but I was not disappointed. For what I really used it, it served it... More

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
