Mantaraya Lodge
Ranked #7 of 14 Puerto Lopez B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 7, 2006

My husband (an ecuadorian) and I (American) first visited Mantaraya Lodge in January, 2001. What a beautiful place! We were treated like family here especiallly by Luis, the manager, and had a wonderful time. Great rooms, reasonable rates, service, food and the view is spectacular. It's convenient to Los Frailles beach, my favorite beach. We have returned to the lodge every time we visited Ecuador. It's my favorite place in the country. I would highly recommend Mantaraya Lodge if you want to have a memorable stay.

Spent 4 days here in March 06. Stayed in colorful stucco bungalows overlooking the Pacific. Very clean, comfortable, wonderful food and service. Enjoyed the pool and the birds and the views. Up the hill from an amazing fishing village and harbor where we took a boat to Isla de la Plata for a small taste of the Galapagos. Also did some fishing and snorkeling. Truly a magical place and highly recommended!

Stayed: July 2006
