This hotel is really unique. Every aspect of its design and creation is made with care and attention and they know exactly what their clients want. We had 4 days there. It was a perfect retreat. My only small problem was the location of our room (Fregata). We could hear everything going on in the car park area and there... More

We spent three wonderful days in this hotel and it was the best place we stayed during our 16-day trip in Ecuador. I won't describe the hotel itself as other reviews and its site already give a reliable description. I'll just list the things we liked most: - position: practically on the beach and close to the main street of... More

Nieces were first time tourists to Ecuador and wanted to show them all kinds of accommodation and attractions. I raised 4 sons so traveling with teenage girls was certainly different - they require different amenities than most boys need. Mandala met all our expectations and more ! Great accommodation, excellent food, helpful friendly staff. Large private beach, short walk along... More

We spent two nights here, and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel has an extensive common room, with many diversions for both adults and children. The rooms are in individual cottages set in a large, lush garden with gravel pathways leading to each cottages. Each cottage has a porch with beautiful woodwork in the floor (all mandalas, hence...

This is an oasis on the beach. Individual, comfortable cabins located in an incredibly plush and beautiful garden, terrific food, superb hospitality, surrounded by art and music. Located on the beach, where there are shaded hammocks and a long stretch of beach to walk, whether walking for its own sake or to get in to the "center" of the small... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends. Best place we've stayed at in Ecuador (if you don't count the few times we treated ourselves to top notch hotels in Quito)! Loved that it was at a quiet end of the town. Food was nice although we found ourselves eating out at other places just because of where we were... More

This was my first "Beach Trip" after living in Ecuador for almost 1.5 years.A well traveled friend recommended Mandala as the place to stay on the beach for quality of the rooms, cleanliness, the cuisine , safety and value for dollar spent. I couldn't have been more pleased with everything about my stay. The first two nights were spent in... More

We stayed here for our last three nights in Ecuador and it was fantastic. After some hostels and a night bus it was such a welcome sight to get to out Cabin near the beach and see beautiful large beds, and wonderful hammocks out on our balcony. The hammocks were amazing and got good use, for sure! The beach near... More

We stayed longer than intended and eventually had to tear ourselves away after 6 nights. A lovely place to stay to finish our holiday in Ecuador. Puerto Lopez is a charming fishing village with plenty to see and do and also a great place to do absolutely nothing. The hosteria is a delight, with beautiful gardens and situated on the... More
