The hotel pictures are accurate but deceiving. We imagined it near an accessible beach. Sea view but no access. Whilst we had a 2 night stay, the bar was open on the first night and offered snacks. The second night everything was closed. No sign of a restaurant. Not a problem

Well, this was a great surprise. We were skeptical when we saw the photos on the website, because photos do not show reality but what the photographer wants to capture. The hotel is a little piece of paradise in Manta. The view is from another world. Great service. The rooms

Our stay at Vistalmar defined our experience in Ecuador. The staff was unbelievably attentive and helpful, and we truly felt like we were at home there. Our 16 year old son (#grumpyteen) said the best part of spending a week with his parents was just hanging out at the hotel

This family quiet hotel is great for a night or two. The service is friendly and the rooms and WC's are clean. The only downside is the bar (only beer and wine). There are small details that could be improved to show a commitment to quality, then again, this is a small hotel in

We were there for 2 nights. The view is beautiful, the hotel was very quiet at night, and the service was excellent. For 79$ a night, we were pleased. It is at close proximity of many restaurants, mall, etc.

Hello, the hotel is right in front of beach Murcielago where you can practice surf and windsurf. Beach Santa Marianita is 25 minutes away and is one the best places to practice surfing in the area. Montañita Beach & Ayampe Beach are 2 hours away from Manta, and are a surfers paradise!

Hello April, Hotel Vistalmar is located in the coastal city of Manta. Around the city there are a lot of sea activities and beautiful beach areas to visit. Recommended areas to visit are beach Santa Marianita, Los Frailes, Isla de la Plata, Montana.. all these are between 1 hour to 1.5 hour away from Manta. However, the big mountain range of the Andes are located 5 hours away by car. If you want to visit the mountains mainly I would recommend to stay in the city of Quito (Capital city of Ecuador). Safe travels!
