“Clean and very friendly”

Very clean and confortable Hotel, well located in Puerto Lopez. There are different gategories of rooms that can accomodate your taste and budget. There is a little restaurent where you can have your meals with tables facing the ocean.
The staff is very friendly and is always ready to help you make your stay an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: If you don't mind paying a little extra, you can have a room with a balcony, with a view of the...

We have stayed for three years, two weeks each time, in Puerto Lopez. Wanting a central location, Hotel Pacifico is the best. Some of the rooms are more basic, fan but no air conditioner; some of these have access to a communal kitchen. The best rooms are in the front, with balconies with hammocks, air conditioning (not essential with the perennially cool weather), good hot water and tile floors. The mattresses are firm. Security is great: never a problem. We are diving for research and so know a number of local people: this is the recommended hotel. The restaurant downstairs is mediocre; we have continental breakfasts there in order to get served early. Although expensive, your best bet.

Room Tip: High end, rooms 209 through 211; face the front, some street noise. But in the back, music and roos...

The place is nice. We had a beach view balcony. But there was no shower head, and the wifi was not good at all. The room was clean and breakfast was good. Private parking and a nice pool (with a cold water hot tub).

Room Tip: Others have commented that the rooms facing the beach were noisy. We had no problem with noise. Th...

This hotel has spacious rooms, options for fans or air-conditioning, friendly staff. Great hot water. and wifi as long as you don't mind going to the lobby or hanging out on the stairs or landings. (The wifi doesn't work in the rooms). It is located right across from the beach and it might be wise to get a room at the back so the noise from the beach hut night clubs doesn't bother you. There is also a pool and nice gardens. The desk staff organized our tour to Isla de la Plata and our stay in Puerto Lopez was great!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the rear are quieter.

When I first contacted the hotel, I already had made a reservation at another place. And I am so glad I had contacted them, because I fled, only one night, the hotel reserved via Booking.com. Before I tell you any more about my stay there, let me note that they (Maria in this case) answered all my emails promptly, which is highly unusual for Ecuador.

I stayed in a room with the ocean view, with an AC (very quiet) and TV with some English channels. The room was around 20 sq meters and had 2 beds (one queen and one single), then there was a HUGE terrace with a hammock and table and chairs. The bathroom had a big shower. They change sheets after 2 nights and towels every day. Their cleaning varies, dependent on the cleaning person, from excellent to adequate. Very unusual for Ecuador, they have very good reading lights by the beds, and adequately lit bathroom. I paid $40 for this room, which would be a fair price, if breakfast was included, which it was not.

The swimming pool is EXCELLENT and clean, have used it every day The beach is across the road, i.e. MAX 100 meters away And this is both good and bad. Good for the view and bad because of the noise, which is where the AC came very handy :) Next time will try a back room, which for sure is quieter and, apparently, is half the price.

The restaurant is very good, particularly for dinner. Had their fish - very good, and shrimps with vegetables - EXCELLENT. Liked the latter so much that had the dish 3 nights. Toe breakfast is adequate, but nothing to write home about. It is $3.50 for a continental breakfast and $4.50 for a full American breakfast

Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and will definitely return, though will make sure to discuss their rate in advance, which I also recommend to all potential guests :)

Yes, they do accept credit cards, BUT their surcharge is 10%, so discuss this as well, before you charge

I loved everything about this hotel. It was clean, affordable, had a great location
on beach front. Pool seemed nice although it was rainy during my stay. I stayed in a non-AC room. It was spacious and fan more than adequate. While breakfast was not included,
it was inexpensive. I also had a nice fresh fish fillet for dinner at their restaurant on their open air veranda. And they took credit cards unlike most other restaurants in PL. And hosts Nelly and Maria were sweet and very helpful with tours and info about Machalilla and Isla de Plata. They made me feel very much at home.And I liked overall vibe of Puerto Lopez, where older and younger crowds and locals and tourists mingle harmoniously

Room Tip: Rooms with fans are adequate plus a lot more economical

This is a great place! I saw several rooms and each one was very nice and very clean. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Some speak some English. This has to be the best place in Puerto Lopez. Just across the street from the beach. The restaurant serves great food. Though I didn't swim, the pool is well kept and very inviting. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in this little town.

Room Tip: Some rooms have AC, but even those that don't have good ventilation.
