Food was very good. The gardens were beautiful. Staff was friendly and multi lingual. Rooms were very nice. Pity we could only stay there 2 our of 4 days as we didn't make reservations far enough in advance.

We walked up from the beach to stop and have a beer and possibly stay there eventually ( had already booked a place for 2 nights) but the lady at the front immediately said they would not serve us because we weren't staying there. What a turn off ! The patio and restaurant were not busy, maybe 6 people. We stayed at a much nice place called Nantu , very accommodating and friendly. And they accept anyone in their restaurant!

We started our trip around Ecuador in this place. The perfect place to unwind from daily life. They made a little paradise of it, with nice cabins with hammocks in front spread around in a beautiful tropical garden. They paid attention to little details. Staff is attentive. The place is a little outside town with its own hammock places at the beach. They provide towels for the beach and tours. We really enjoyed our stay!

We loved our time at this place during our recent honeymoon. All the staff are lovely - so helpful and obviously love working with and meeting people from all over the world. The layout of the place, by the sea, in beautiful gardens with your own cabin is very nicely done and the whole hosteria is very peaceful. It is easy from here to arrange tours to Isla de la Plata, visit the gorgeous Los Frailes beach and get loads of information about local transport and activities. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Couldn't wish my self a better location to end my trip to ecuador. This place is so great! After check in by the very friendly owner we were brought to our cabin trough their beautiful garden. Only this is worth a visit! The cabin was comfortable and clean. Especially liked the hammock outside and the nice bathroom. Breakfast is a la carte and not included but all options are good! The kitchen could improve on the quality of the dinner. This was nothing special. You'll probably find better and cheaper options in town. But except for this all was perfect! Also the tour to Isla de la Plata that they booked for us was awesome!

Thanks a lot for this great stay! We will come back!

when you arrive at puerto lopez, your first impression is not good... The town looks as if it's been devastated by a tsunami. Until you arrive at hosteria Mandala, a real haven.
The place is really nice, clean and friendly. The food is great. The rooms are large and clean, and the garden is beautiful. It really is a pleasure to simply relax in the hammock on your patio, looking at the garden.

After a long bike ride throughout Ecuador, we were looking for a quiet, natural place, which we found I fell in Love with...

I really recommend this place!!! Native Ecuadorian nature, next to the beach, walking distance from the town and the best rooms!!!
