Supposedly a 5-star hotel... don't make me laugh. Five star price for sure (for Ecuador anyhow) but a terrible hotel. Probably still the best in Manta, but that's simply because the other ones are even worse. (Having originally booked the Nazo hotel, I checked-out as soon as I saw the room in that awful establishment, and switched the Oro Verde... some improvement but not much!)
Where do I start... The room, facing the beach, had nice view but was incredibly noisy (the doors let all noise from the corridor and main road come in, making it impossible to have a decent night's rest). It was also unacceptably dirty and of overall very low quality (in furnishings, equipment etc). This would be an ok 2-star in the US and perhaps a 3-star in Europe (and probably demolished if in Asia :)). The other nasty surprise were the tiny ants all over the room; when I complained at the front desk they were not at all surprised and offered to give me an anti-ant spray!! Service was not friendly at all, at any point. The only good thing was the breakfast buffet - huge selection and tasty.
(Manta, by the way, is not worth a visit - crappy and nasty, just like their hotels.)
