We stayed at Balandra Hotel in April and absolutely loved it. The hotel is very beautiful, clean and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast was very good and offered variety of food, juices, fruits and coffee. I highly recommend this hotel.

My mom and I stayed here for 4 nights. It was a wonderful relaxing end of our trip in Ecuador. It was located one block from the beautiful public beach. The hotel is charming. Beautiful combination of casita style and traditional hotel room options. We stayed in the hotel side which was very comfortable and had a wonderful balcony. Walking...

Excellent! in every aspect. Wheelchair accesible, good wifi, great beds, nice pool. I think the best food I ate in manta was on the hotels restaurant. A little bit expensive but they had vegetarians options.

Although it was a short stay but it was enough to mention as positive. Gentle, smiling and helpful personnel. Confortable room, good shower and bathroom size. Breakfast 10 points. This is the Cabaña. Have not been in a room.

beautiful hotel, excellent service. The cabanas could use at least a half bath on the second floor. Not practical to go up and down in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Other than that beautiful place, close to the beach, just great.

The landscaping is beautiful and the location is very good. But the interiors of the rooms are sub par. and generally, they are way over priced for the quality of the room that you get. The lobby is nice and the staff is helpful.

We stayed in one of the new twin towers. From our private balcony we faced onto the Malecon and could watch the ships pulling into port. Our room was well appointed but at times a bit noisy from the traffic on the main street. The older rooms and bungalows that face out onto courtyard looked very quaint and comfortable and...

Very nicely appointed hotel. A little slow on our restaurant service but that was due to many Xmas parties. The front desk guard was very nice and helpful. The evening clerk was a little sharp. They gave us a box breakfast which was very tasty and plentiful.

“Comfortable bed, nice desk area, charming porch. One minor problem was the light in the closet kept going on and off any time you got near it. Would be better to have a switch so the guest can control it.”
