“Comfortable with a View!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I just came back from Ecuador (4-21-2013), and Canoa Beach Hotel was my last stop on a 10 day whirlwind tour of the entire country. I was able to relax here for the last two days of my trip, and I don't think there was a better hotel to do it in than Canoa Beach Hotel. Nice large, new rooms with a large balcony to look over the pool and the ocean waves. Modern air conditioning, large shower with great water pressure, and comfortable beds made for a relaxing stay. Greg, owner and GM, was an awesome host and very concerned with how my stay was going and even sat down with me for a long, pleasant conversation. Food was great and they even serve microbrews on tap (very good brews I might add!). I give this place an excellent rating and would recommend Canoa Beach Hotel to anyone!

We too found the hospitality at Canoa Beach hotel unsurpassed in Ecuador. Not to mention the excellent rooms with oh-so quiet air conditioners, great views, and comfortable beds. Our son loved playing with the other kids in the pool and catching frogs at night around the pool. The scene in Canoa was a zoo, but the scene at the Canoa Beach hotel was calm and easygoing.
Thanks Maureen and Greg!

After staying at another hotel in the Canoa area for a few nights we packed up our bags and headed to the Canoa Beach Hotel, where we spent the next 15 nights. The room had a king size bed and massive tiled shower. The air conditioning in the room made for great sleeps and the place was always cleaned spotless everyday while we were out. The hotel is a quick 5-10 minute walk outside the town of Canoa which was great because it was so quiet, yet so close to town. The hotel has a nice bar with satelite tv, where I often sat and caught a few NFL games. The staff was great and went out of their way daily (hola Cesar). Also the main purpose of my trip was surfing and with the rental of a board from a shop in town I was able to surf everyday right infront the the hotel, free from the crowds of Canoa. The overall trip was a great experience and I would recommend it to all types of travellers. Thanks again Greg.

On our fourth trip to Ecuador my husband and I finally hit the jackpot. We discovered a rare jewel called the Canoa Beach Hotel. Staying there made our trip amazing. Canoa Beach Hotel is considered a "green" ecofriendly hotel, which made us feel that much better staying there.
The wait staff, chef, maids and grounds-keeper were so accommodating.
Under the watchful eye of Greg Gilliam, one the owners, they went above and beyond the level of service we'd come to expect.

Greg is very accessible and is seen around the hotel chatting with guests and working tirelessly to make the guests feel comfortable without being intrusive.

The food and drinks were like a piece of heaven and very reasonably priced.

I give Canoa Beach Hotel a five star plus rating and would recommend it to families, couples and singles it has a lot for everyone.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms overlook the ocean, they all have a good view. We were on the ground floor and...

We traveled from Manta (about 2 hours) to stay 2 nights at the Canoa Beach Hotel. It was such a pleasant surprise when we arrived. What an absolutely gorgeous place!! Canoa is a short walk down the beach and definitely is fun to visit and then go back to the quiet atmosphere of Greg's
(owner) marvelous paradise. The rooms are very nice and our view from the room and balcony was amazing. The bed was very comfortable and linens were of superior quality. The landscaping is extremely well done and the pool is unique and a pleasure to enjoy daily. Food started with a breakfast which is included in room rate. Breakfast was not only very good but also healthy. One of our favorite meals was the Fish and Chips, YUM,YUM! Greg is a fantastic host he made us feel very much at home. We enjoyed it so much we went back a second time during our one month stay in Manta. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: We loved room #37. Great view! King bed.

Discovered this hotel by accident but what a find! Warm, friendly atmosphere. Clean, comfortable room with a fantastic view over the ocean. Kids loved the pool and the easy access to the beach. Have recommended it to family and friends. Will definitely return on our next trip to Ecuador.

Had a great time relaxing by the pool at Canoa Beach Hotel. Greg and staff went out of their way to ensure I had an enjoyable stay. Microbrews on tap at bar, quiet surrounding beaches, hearty breakfasts.

Room Tip: get 2nd or 3rd floor for a better view
