    Great independent hotel in Manta

    The room is exceptionally clean is larger than is typical in Ecuador. WiFi was fast and reliable as we needed to connect with clients for video calls a few times. Staff, including housekeeping, are kind and friendly. The breakfast is very good with a variety of choice. I will come back to this hotel again.
