This place is amazing; while there is no included breakfast, you won't care...the breakfast options are amazing. The bungalows are BEAUTIFUL; very private, and clean. Hot water available in showers. Simply a wonderful get away. The owners are beautiful people, who value family. They were present daily. The short jaunt across the way to the beach with private areas to... More

We stayed at Hosteria Mandala the last 4 days of our 2 week vacation in Ecuador. This was a special place--beautiful grounds, beautiful lobby/restaurant area, and great, comfortable rooms. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and all the staff are friendly and helpful. The Mandala is located right on the beach. You can take long walks on the beach in... More

Hosteria Manadala is located just outside the town of Puerto Lopez. You can choose to walk or for the more lazy people, you can choose to take a $1 motor taxi to the town. The atmosphere in the hosteria is really relaxing and it feels like home straight away! The staff is really nice and gives you tips on what... More

From the moment you arrive here, you fall into someone else's mind. Never in our lives have we felt so surrounded by someone's vision for their buildings, gardens, restaurant, view of the ocean and customer experience. This place is special and we will come back to Mandala at some point in our lives. We traveled down the coast to Puerto... More

The bongalows are very nice, like staying in the middle of the jungle and a lot of flowers in the garden. The food was very good and service attentative and nice. If we ever come back to Puerto...

Right next to the beach, rooms are located around a botanical garden (which accounts for some of the bugs), is this very well equipped hotel. Rooms are large, well kept, great shower, room fans and musquito net around the bed. Large porch. Bring insect repellent and long sleevesfor around 17.00 hrs. The town is a bit awkward, looks rundown, but... More

The worst experience of pompous, uncaring owners ever - and I've been a few places. Stay there on their terms - smelly dogs, poor service, deceitful booking information - or stay away. We will be staying away and encouraging everyone we know to do the same.

We've stayed here a few times, and it's always been great. The rooms are large and comfortable with great bathrooms. The screens and nets are in good condition, and the rooms we've had have always had nice balconies with hammocks. The rooms are set in the garden, which is also beautiful so there are lots of humming birds etc around.... More

What could be better than a hotel with hospitality of an Italian and efficiency of the Swiss? On our first day we discovered we had booked the wrong two nights! They had no room that night, so owner personally drove us around and found us a wonderful room down the road. The next day we moved over to our little... More
