Response from ricaro, Gerente at Manso Boutique GuesthouseResponded yesterday

Hi, DoubleX, thanks for your review. In Spanish we call ourselves "Boutique Hostal". In English "Boutique Guesthouse". A Hostel is a backpackers' lodging. Even though we have one shared room, most of our rooms are private, so the term "hostel" would be somewhat deceiving. In...More

The Manso Boutique Guesthouse was a great place to stay. It is located opposite the Malecon and it is a short walk to the Iguana Park. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean.

Reception for the guest house is on the first floor but that means a long flight of stairs up to it and I don't think there's a lift. My room was a flight above that.
