This is a great place to stay and eat. The staff are really helpful and the laid back approach to extra request is much appreciated. The location on the beach is perfect and there's a ton to do in town or visit the nearby national park, esp in the morning.

My husband and our three kids stayed for 5 nights, and it wasn’t long enough!!!! Accommodations were perfect and in the most beautiful setting. Gardens are stunning, so many beautiful areas to hang out and chill in, breakfasts were divine. The staff are helpful and relaxed. We hope to come back again someday! (Book an inexpensive boat trip to Isla De La Plata at reception, and stroll to the end of the beach on the right to visit the turtle sanctuary).

My group of six friends loved our stay in the casitas and I only wish I could be back there now! The lodging is very relaxing and sequestered in greeen. The breakfast is wonderful and fresh. Everything about our stay was so enjoyable. I highly recommend taking the boat out to Isla de la Plata which the staff can arrange for you.

The room itself was so quaint and cute, and it felt so private and cozy. They are all like little private bungalows with hammocks to relax in, and it was so nice. The restaurant was very good, and had a lot of good food. The staff is SO friendly and accommodating. Right off the beach, and so much to explore on the grounds themselves. It's like a beautiful garden, walking through the grounds. You will not at all regret your stay here, it is truly one of a kind, with a game room, and floors above the main area with books, chairs and other cool stuff to occupy yourself with.

I have lived in Ecuador for over 8 years and have been to many hosterias all over Ecuador. Hosteria Mandala was by far the best! Super chill, beautiful, comfortable, professional, excellent breakfast, and great location. I will go back.
