We greatly enjoyed our recent stay at Canoa Beach Hotel. The views are awesome, the rooms are great and it is an ocean front location. Greg and Maureen were great and welcomed us with open arms. It was very nice to have the bar and restaurant onsite and the service and quality was very good. Maureen was helpful with setting up surfing lessons for our daughter thru Betty Surf and Yoga. Maureen even went surfing with our daughter one afternoon and they became very good friends. Greg personally designed the outstanding pool and it is a must see. For us, the friendly, personal service at this hotel caught our attention and we want to thank Greg and Maureen for helping to make our trip to Canoa very successful and enjoyable. As a family, we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean. There is not a bad room here.

We stayed at the Canoa Beach Hotel for two nights, and we didn't want to leave. Greg and Maureen were super friendly and accommodating as soon as we got there, and treated us great. The room had everything we could ask for: a comfortable king bed, overlooking the ocean, hot shower with great water pressure, and AIR CONDITIONING!

We ate at the hotel restaurant both nights we were there, and the food was really good. After traveling around Ecuador we were ready for something besides ceviche and the fish and chips hit the spot.

The pool is fantastic, and we went swimming in the pool more than we did in the ocean. This place is a must-stay!

My husband and I stayed here on a tour we took through Ecuador. We liked it so much we went back before we had to come home! As previous reviewer's say, it was our favorite place.
Greg and Maureen were were wonderful, welcoming and made you feel like friends. Greg has lots of great stories and is the personality behind the hotel. It has a very laid back vibe which was perfect for us. They rest of the staff were wonderful as well.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The showers were big and had plenty of hot water. The beds were comfy. A/C in the room, not that we needed it. Every room overlooks the beautiful grounds and pool and then of course the ocean. Breakfast is included and was delicious fresh fruit, yogurt and other goodies. We ate dinner here a few times as well. We had a great Mahi Mahi dinner Hawaiian style with homemade salsa. I ate my weight in shrimp while on the coast of Ecuador and have to say that Greg's fired shrimp was the best I had.
You can relax at the hotel or take a short walk down the beach to Canoa or if you are adventurous can soar over the cliffs behind the hotel!
We loved both our times at Canoa Beach hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay on this part of the coast. I am sure we will be back again!
