This is a small hotel, which guarantees safety, privacy and great service. Rodrigo and Dayra are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to please their guests. All meals of the day are included and the chef and kitchen staff plan the menus ahead taking into account your preferences. I liked every single dish I was served, from simple... More

I stayed at Tanusas for two weeks in January 2015. I am a writer from the UK, and wanted an inspired and inspiring place for a short writing retreat. The Tanusas experience began at Guayaquil airport. The hotel had sent three people, including one Spanish-English translator, to pick me up, even though it was only four in the morning! They...

They only have 10 rooms. 5 in the main building and 5 villas. The latter have been built in such way that provides you with privacy. Price include the 3 daily meals which are gourmet,... More

Went with my Ecuadorian wife and family in law to Las Tanusas. What a pleasant surprise. The main building where we stayed only have 4-5 rooms and is ideal with children as it has easy access to pool, kids/TV room and dining area. The surroundings are beautiful, the resort very well planned and the service top range. What really sets... More
