“Home away from Home! The BEST place to stay in Manta!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Besides being a clean, convenient hostal, with a great breakfast, wi fi, cable tv, a.c., comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and a wonderful swimming pool. In our 4 days at the Marina Real, it became a home away from home. The owners are so friendly and helpful, would do anything at anytime for their guests... it's not just that it's their business, they really care about their wide variety of guests (from USA, Canada, Korea, Ecuador and more!). There is a 24 hour guard to let you in and out and locked garage space. Short walk to very good restaurants, shopping mall and supermarket. The breakfast room has a small refrigerator you can use.
The garden was lovely with hummingbirds! Our favorite! I wish I could share the warm feeling that staying at the Marina Real Hostal brings.
I would recommend this for anyone and everyone. Short or long term stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, quiet, safe.

If you want a really great place to stay in Manta Ecuador,this is it,Marina Real.Marina Real is run by two of the nicest people you could meet,Diego and his wife Chelly.The hotel has clean rooms,a swimming pool and breakfast every morning.The Ecuadoran breakfast was just simply amazing and not to be missed.We were made to feel so welcome and at home during our stay at Marina Real and we would stay there again next time in Manta.Also the rates were very affordable.We were very happy with our stay and you will be too.

While looking for a place to buy our winter home in Manta, Ecuador we spent 5 days @ Marina Real. The rooms are nice, clean and air conditioned. Breakfast was always good next to the pool. I became sick and they made me chicken soup and drove my wife to the drug store @ 7:00 AM to try and get medicine for me. Much more then we expected. Also safe inside parking for our rental car. This was in 2008, not Oct. 2010. Also they have enlarged the Marina Real Hostal since then. Great place to stay!

a $5 taxi ride from the airport, in a quiet neighbourhood. A lovely, very clean and comfortable hotel, with breakfast included. A tropical landscaped courtyard ,with a good sized pool to relax by. Also a nice meal area in the courtyard. Friendly and welcoming owners, who assisted us with travel information, and also offered us private transport to the downtown area.The hotel also has a car parking area.
We were very happy staying here ,and would definitly recommend it.

Room Tip: probably upstairs would be quieter, but ground floor was quiet too.

June 15-20, 2011 My family, my wife and I and 5 children (ages 24-16) stayed in Manta at Marina Real Hostal. These accommodations were very nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the whole hostal was very well kept. The door men and assistants made us feel welcome and safe. We loved the breakfasts, there was more than enough delicious food (fresh fruit and juice, pastry, and more). It was wonderful to be served such a tasty breakfast by a wonderful staff. The owners, Chellie and Diego were so accommodating. Thank especially to Chellie.
Gracias Chellie! Uds Y las chicas que nos dieron ese rico desayuno son super lindas!!!!!

The owners, Chellie and Diego, the staff, and the guest make you feel so at home and safe. Lively conversations and laughter make ending you day here a blessing.
Breakfast is a delight; wonderful service, with more breakfast than one can eat. I was so excited to greet the day with fresh fruit and warm breads, Ecuadorian style.
Marina Real is so very clean, includng the pool and the veranda. At every entrance and exit for your day's excursions guest are greeted by friendly faces.
We are always treated with professionalism and love in this beautiful home and Hostal. Please do not miss the opportunity to meet all these lovely and elegant people.
Brava! Chellie and Diego!! We love you!!
