Small hotels in Manta are generally called Hostels - don't be confused by what we used to use in Europe during our college days. Marina Real is a delight. Comfortable rooms that are clean and the very best part - Diego and his staff! So kind, helpful, accommodating and very kind with my VERY rough language skills. Breakfast in the morning is delicious. Fresh fruit, fresh juice, fresh rolls and coffee with milk. They will make you espresso for your warm milk, but you will also find the common Ecuadorian instant coffee
Some advise for visiting Manta - there is very little English spoken - bone up on your Spanish skills. Currency is in US Dollars. A taxi to the beach $1 - don't ask - just give them a dollar and say thank you. At night taxis will want to charge more. There are no meters in the cabs in Manta - in Quito there are and you make sure they turn the meter on for the trip. It is a short ride to Montechristi - the home of the real deal handmade Panama Hats. Great quality for great price.
My husband and I both highly recommend this hotel for your safe and pleasant stay in Mantta.
