Comfy bed, towels and soap. TV with a couple of channels showing un dubbed American shows The Bad: Day 1, cold water only. Day 2, barely a trickle of... More

We wanted to stay somewhere special as it was my birthday so after seeing the photos and reviews booked to stay here. Noted book directly with the hotel as it is quite a bit cheaper than with booking sites (they have their own website in Spanish). We were meant to be picked up, but despite being the only Gringos to... More

I booked to stay at El Escudero on the 30th and 31st of December for New Years and wish I hadn't. First of all, we arrived at around 5:30am as we had to get the only bus available from Cuenca which was the night before at 9pm which I understand is slightly too early to arrive however we were welcomed...

Our stay in Mancora could not have been any better. The rooms in El Escudero Lodge are a good size, very clean, had wifi access, and a TV. Martin, our host, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and always had a smile on his face. He even arranged our onward bus tickets to Quito for us! The swimming pool looked brand new,... More

Located 2 blocks from the main road, in a local neighbourhood, the hotel is quiet and very clean. The rooms are a good size, plenty of hot water in the shower and air conditioning that works well...needed in the heat you find in Mancora! It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk into the main tourist area and beach along... More

The owner was the friendliest and nicest guy we met in South America when we did a tour from Lima to Ecuador (Quito). He helped us when we had a big problem and we learned that he is really passionate to host guests from all over the world. However the rooms were not completely finished at the time when we... More

If one of your concerns when you travel, is cleanliness, then you will have no worries here. The accommadation is kept extremely clean and tidy with the rooms maintained on a daily basis. The rooms are rustic,simple, beds are comfortable and the small bathroom has a basin,toilet and shower. Despite there being no hot water, you really do not miss... More

Nice, clean a bit pricey. Very helpful though. We stayed only 1 night since we wanted to stay in bungalows on the beach - the owners helped us a lot to find a new place to live and advised on transportation options
