“My Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed in Santa Marianita for about a year while I was building my house in Ecuador. I didn't want to live in Manta as I'm not big on city life - and I found exactly what I wanted in Santa Marianita. It's peaceful and quiet and only a 15 minute drive to the city. The house is beautiful, clean, and close to the beach. The community of Santa Marianita is friendly and has a nice blend of locals and expats. I miss the mornings when I woke up to see whales jumping in the ocean or groups of dolphins playing right in front of the house. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful vacation outside of the city but with all the amenities that one is used to.

Liked best: Location.
Liked least: Nothing!

“Heaven on Earth in Santa Marianita”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This little gem is located right on the beach overlooking the ocean. The owners are Canadian's who are now permanent resident's of Ecuador who are extremely helpful in guiding you to the best sites in the area. A $10 Taxi ride will get you into the vibrant city of Manta or be adventurous and take a ride on the back of a truck with the locals for $1! Hostels and Kitesurfing right next door with a fishing village just down the beach to experience how the locals live. As a single girl, traveling solo, this is the place to stay for comfort and safety with all the conveniences of home. Breakfast/lunch/supper available on the beach at many of the local restaurants. Friend's for life is what you will find in the heart of this wonderful community.

I have been to Santa Mariano's twice and both times I stayed here, the owners are fantastic! nice and cozy place to stay, overlooking the beach you are only a 3 minute walk away from awesome breakfast at the donkeys den and lots of restaurants on the beach, felt very safe there, left the patio door open every night and in the mornings during certain months you can watch the whales breach right from your patio door! Would recommend staying here!

“Gorgeous 1 bed in quiet, peaceful Santa Marianita”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This apartment is beautiful and is incredibly located for the beach and local restaurants. Santa Marianita is a quiet, little fishing village and a perfect location to escape everyday distractions. The apartment is about a thirty second walk from the beach, minutes walk to delicious restaurants, and a twenty minute drive to Manta - an easy drive or cheap taxi. Don't forget to try the comatillo, a local delicious fish, and the ceviche! The owners are fantastic and definitely made our stay a great one. We were only able to stay four nights but wish it could have been longer. I definitely recommend this place for either a few nights or long term rental!
