When we have small groups from the USA visit us in Manta, we have them stay at Marina Real. We recently had 8 people from Virginia stay there. The rooms were clean and cool. They slept well. The outdoor area was very nice, and breakfast was good. The location is safe and convenient. The price is right. The owners and... More

....and I have seen every one of them in the nearby vicinity in the same price arena. Each one has its "best feature" but if you could see all of them as I have, the best outdoor ambiance is clearly Marina Real Hostal. It is the only one I've seen that appears to have been well thought out on the... More

Shelly and her staff are attentive and kind. The place is conveniently located and clean; the pool is comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. Several restaurants within walking distance in the neighborhood. Highly recommend Marina Real.

I was in Manta looking for a condo to buy and because of former reviews on Trip Advisor I chose this hostel to stay 2 nights. Actually I arrived on the first flight from Quito at 7am and was allowed to have a room immediately even though check-in time is noon. They even served me breakfast and in the end... More

Small hotels in Manta are generally called Hostels - don't be confused by what we used to use in Europe during our college days. Marina Real is a delight. Comfortable rooms that are clean and the very best part - Diego and his staff! So kind, helpful, accommodating and very kind with my VERY rough language skills. Breakfast in the... More

This review is long overdue but no less heartfelt. We stayed at Marina Real Hostal in September 2012 for four nights and loved it. Chelly and all of the staff were friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed our first two nights there and Chelly was kind enough to let us leave our large suitcases there while we made a three-day... More

Hostal Marina Real is a first rate place to stay in Manta. The rooms are clean, the entire facility is modern, you can park your car safely in the garage, the staff is very friendly and a delicious breakfast is served each morning by the pool. In this price range (moderate), I highly recommend this establishment. Most of all, the... More

We stayed at the Marina Real in DEC 2012. We made reservations through a back and forth email exchange as there was no web site available. This was only minor complication in arraning our stay. Shelly runs a wondeful hotel/hostal which I highly recommend. The daily price, including tax, was $67. The room was always clean, had cable, and well... More

We stayed here because of Trip Advisor reviews. I agree. They need a website. Had helluva time making reservas. Finally phoned and was able to get reservations with my very marginal Spanish. Everything else over two weeks in Ecuador was reserved over the internet. Had some difficulty finding because this place was not in our (new and expensive) GPS database.... More

Hotel Marina Real is a truly hidden gem in Manta, Ecuador. Owners treat you as friends, service is excellent/personalized, and they offer the best breakfast in town. You simply won't regret staying with them while visiting Ecuador. Love this place!
