“...near the ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

I had a pleasant, clean room with a view of the ocean. My room had a private bathroom, air conditioning and cable tv: breakfast was included. Though the hotel has a small pool and jacuzzi....I liked the nearby beach. The neighbourhood is quiet and near bars, restaurants and food stores. Wifi is available. The friendly staff were quite helpful and made my stay in Manta really enjoyable.

Stayed September 2011, traveled solo

Hotel is rather small (which is an advantage for me) but in a very convenient location. Liked a homey warm relaxed atmosphere. Room was also quite spacious n spotless during all our stay. So, was nice problem-free experience

The place is conveniently located near the beach, it is managed by the owner which ensures quality and dedicated service. The pool is small but it is more than adequate to relax and enjoy a bit of fresh water after the beach. Overall a great cost/benefit deal in the city.

This small but beautiful hotel was a pleasure to stay in! The rooms are clean and lovely. The pool is nice but the the nearby beach is soo much bigger. The food is fine and the part of the city really safe.

This place is filthy and is nothing like the web site. We were there, chose not to stay after 3 minutes.... No there was no refund... My first gringo rip off. Spa in the name is a joke. The windows/outside door didn't close, Mosquitos were having a great time. I wouldn't wish the place on anyone. Travelers beware! Wish I had taken some photos to share with anyone reading this... Trust me no exaggeration in how bad this place is.

AntaresManta, Manager at Antares Hostal, responded to this review, June 2, 2011
All our politics are made to please our guests, sometimes it is defficult to serve all of them. Sadly there was a misunderstanding with the lady who wrote the review and she decided not to stay.

We thank her anyway for helping us to improve our service.

I would also like to ask TripAdsor´s team, to do some previous investigation before publishing any review they receive as they can cause a serious problem to the establishment.
