Hotel surpassed my expectations

Review of Eco Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 03 Aug 2023
I was a little wary about coming to a “party”town and not being able to sleep due to the loud music. To my pleasant surprise, the hotel is tucked away in a very calm and quiet spot, yet only 5 mins walk from all the action. Slept like a baby. Additionally, the hotel is super cute, with its all wood construction, and dense plants everywhere (yet no insects or mosquitoes thank god!). What made my experience exceptional is Bruno, who was helpful and accommodating. I arrived by bus at 6 am from Ecuador, and I was so tired from the trip and afraid I would need to wait till 12 to check in. Bruno, who texted me earlier to arrange for my arrival, was there waiting for me, and allowed me to check in early at 6 am, even though their policy was much later. He gave me suggestions for places to see and eat. He also allowed me to have a late check out, which was so convenient. He was pleasant, and understanding (and funny!). I loved my stay because of him. Place is well worth its cost, clean, conveniently located a few mins away from the beach and downtown, and even has a little kitchen in case you prefer to cook. Cannot recommend enough.

We spent about 5 days in this hotel during our visit to Mancora beach. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the beach.
Their breakfast is one of the delicious & nutritious one we had. They gave us bread, fruit yogurt, eggs, ham / sosis. Other time, they serve us pancakes or french toast that was like dessert in the morning.
Those siblings ladies was very nice to us & they clean our room. They are very kind. They let us cook on the 3rd floor, however, they need to put hand rails for people to climb up there.
This hotel swimming pool is a bit small if you have 4 people swimming. I donated some of my clothes when I found out that the owner build other buildings for the disabled kids.
I had went to a restaurant at Indonesia where you can throw you left over food to the fish & turtle. I wish they add farm in here, so we have a chance to feed & pet animals.

It’s a very beautiful place to stay! I have booked a family room for myself and it was awesome ! A lot of space after sleeping for a long time in dorms! I stayed five days. Vale is so fantastic! She was always helpful and all time available. I asked for a vegan breakfast and Vale organized it for me! The beach and the lighthouse is closed to the Hotel and a lot of Restaurants too.

Stayed 4 nights at the Ecolodge, was a really fabulous relaxing stay close by the beach, just what was needed!
Host Val was great and always at hand for local recommendations with restaurants, beaches, tours and even advice about the next stage of my peru trip!

Thanks again, highly recommend staying here to any couple/sole travellers 👍🏽

Lovely rooms, (ours had air con) small but well kept pool in relaxing garden with comfortable sun beds, away from the hustle and bustle of Mancora. Richie was warm and welcoming, knowledgeable and interesting to talk about anything from music, travel, culture, medicine..also can arrange trips which are better than those sold on the high street, from our experience. Great breakfast. Free water refill station.
