I have stayed here twice in the little apartment building connected to the hotel while volunteering in the local community (for about a month each time.) I have to say it is probably the nicest place in town for longer stays (more than a few weeks, less than 6 months.) I am so lucky to have such a wonderful home... More

We arrived by bus after 5 months of bussing through Peru and Ecuador. We were done with travelling and heard in Manta that Puerto Lopez would be the best bet to relax before heading home. The town is shamefully neglected but when citizens only pay $10/year in property taxes what can the municipal government really do. Schools could delegate a... More

My husband could hardly find the chicken on his chicken sandwich, but my fish-n-chips (called pescado ampanado locally) were fairly good. Be aware that there's no such thing as tartar sauce in most restaurants in Ecuador though. This place was pricier than other restaurants in the Puerto Lopez area, but still could not be called expensive. You can’t miss it;... More

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Pacifico. This is a great place to stay if you want to be in the middle of the action on the malecon. The room was lovely and we enjoyed much time on our balcony. We are more beach people but the pool was clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. They all worked... More

We booked this hotel our first night in Puerto Lopez. It is a clean and adequate place to stay. However, if Hotel Pacifico wants to keep their rating they need to 1) lower the prices or 2) remodel. We found a much nicer, beachfront room at another hotel for $10 less per night. Again, Pacifico is clean, fairly comfortable and... More

Puerto Lopez is an amazing region with lots of great food and beautiful beaches to offer all guests who visit. When I first stepped in to the hotel pacifico, I was ignored for a few minutes until I was finally greeted by a lady in the front. The pool was rather dirty and when we walked into our hotel room...

Very nice management, nice apartment with shared kitchen with 2 other apartments. Views of the ocean, good price. Perfect for long term rentals. Can be a tad noisy on weekends but same can be said of all downtown hotels. Highly recommended

Very clean and confortable Hotel, well located in Puerto Lopez. There are different gategories of rooms that can accomodate your taste and budget. There is a little restaurent where you can have your meals with tables facing the ocean. The staff is very friendly and is always ready to help you make your stay an enjoyable one.

We have stayed for three years, two weeks each time, in Puerto Lopez. Wanting a central location, Hotel Pacifico is the best. Some of the rooms are more basic, fan but no air conditioner; some of these have access to a communal kitchen. The best rooms are in the front, with balconies with hammocks, air conditioning (not essential with the... More

The place is nice. We had a beach view balcony. But there was no shower head, and the wifi was not good at all. The room was clean and breakfast was good. Private parking and a nice pool (with a cold water hot tub).
