We almost stayed in Sua at a depressing hostel. Sua is not much better than that sadly. Nice bay but very depressing. We were afraid Atacames would be ugly as we'd been told by Locals. The hotel was perfect, awesome service, beautiful clean spotless spacious room with two beds over looking the beach with balcony and hammock. The price was... More

The first time we visited Cielo Azul was back in 2005. Since then we have enjoyed this beautiful hotel numerous times. Our daughter doesn't want to even consider any other hotel and says staying at Cielo Azul is a family tradition. The hotel is located right on the Atacames beach, no roads in front. It is in a quiet zone... More

I stayed in Atacames for 3 days/nights and booked Hotel Cielo Azul via email. I went there to surf. Before my arrival the hotel staff never answered my repeated questions (via email) about whether or not there were surfboards to rent at or near the hotel. When I arrived, the hotel receptionist assured me that there were several places to... More

I really enjoyed this hotel with the large balcony and ocean view. Breakfast was included with the rate. The staff was wonderful. Refrigerator in the room. Great rates too.

Hotel Cielo Azul is right on the beach and has very clean rooms. To get to the beach, you simply have to walk through reception, pass the beach, and voila, in less than a minute, you're on sand and looking at waves. The best part of this hotel is that you can even hear the waves behind closed doors! I... More

Hotel Cielo Azul is right on Atacames beach and a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal. The manager and staff are great, they were very helpful, professional and kind, something very hard to find in Ecuador. The rooms were very clean, the landscaped areas are well taken care off. There is an on-site restaurant called "El Pandao" which served... More

Very clean and situated right on the beach, within walking distance of the shops and ceviche stalls. We stayed in Rm308 with 2 queen beds and an awesome balcony overlooking the bay.

I agree with the reviewer who said, "4 starts for Ecuadorian standards. Customer service and manager get 5 stars." Housekeeping did a good job daily. Complementary breakfast of eggs, fruit, fresh fruit juice, bread, marmalade, butter and coffee or hot chocolate was something we looked forward to each morning. The hotel staff were all pleasant and helpful. Nice pool and... More
