It must be almost a year ago since we stayed here. Spending our honeymoon in Ecuador, this was by far the best hotel I ever stayed in. I feel ashamed we did not sooner wrote a comment. On the other hand, we still dream away to this place. Nautilus hotel is an oasis of peace in the beautiful town of Puerto Lopez. The hotel offers beautiful and comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean. There is a swimming pool to enjoy and a nice terras to enjoy. But all credits go to the two owners and the cook!! They make sure you feel welcome and safe, and they're always in for little chat. When u have the opportunity to eat in the restaurant, do it!! The cook will amaze u with original dishes, based on the catch of the day on the local market. Thank U so much for the wonderful time we could spend there! All the best Linus and Anne (Belgium)…
The hotel is down a gravel side street, about a block back from the water front. The high wooden fence and gate prevent a passerby from seeing the gem that lies inside. Arriving you move through a heavily landscaped interior walkway to the office/pool area. Our room was on the second floor and was wonderful, with an outside terrace. Mornings breakfast was by the pool, presided over by Pablo - chef and entertainer - an amazing presence. One of the best places we stayed at in our three week ramble around Ecuador.
Nautilus is a little treasure trove in the midst of Puerto Lopez. It's well-designed and clean. I have to give a RAVE REVIEW for Pablo, the Chef, who also seems to be in charge of everything else. His food was tasty, he was the kindest of the kind, and he was on top of the Customer Service. However, the hotel seems to be understaffed otherwise. Pablo seemed to be everywhere at all times (which doesn't seem quite right, as I don't know when he gets time to rest), but there doesn't seem to be enough staff for cleaning, cooking, providing room service, or even front desk service. In short, this is a one-man show (and the one man does the work of many).
We where located in the Nautilus suite, which is very spacious with a big balcony with hammock and sitting area. The room has a so called matrimonio bed (which is common in Ecuador) and a single bed. For us the matrimonio is really too small to have a good sleep for the both of us together, we therefor used both beds. If it was my hotel and most of my guests where from europea / us , I would take out the 2 beds and change it for a bigger double bed. However the current beds are realy comfy, only too small for our taste. Breakfast is served with good choice of eggs, yoguhrt etc. fresh juice and coffee. Hosts are very friendly and like to give you info about the surrounding and possible tours. All in all a good place to stay.
This is a very lovely hotel. Puerto Lopez is a dusty, rundown town and this hotel is a perfect oasis. The pool is beautiful, the food is great and the rooms are large and comfortable. The owners are charming and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again :-)
