Lucia, Jose and Lu are amazing hosts of this boutique hotel in San Cristobal. They went out of their way to accommodate everything we needed. The rooms are great and the location next to the beautiful beach is outstanding. Highly highly recommend.
My family stayed with Jose at Casa Playa Mann for four nights. Jose was immensely helpful during the planning process. He let us shift our dates slightly when the airlines canceled our flights. He also helped us book trips to Kicker Rock in advance and offered some suggestions on day trips we could book that would be appropriate for our one-year old baby. A few days before our trip he sent over detailed instructions on how to navigate the COVID protocols and get out to the islands without issue. We booked both a Garden View room for two adults and an Ocean view suite for two adults and one baby. Jose provided a crib (pack & play style) for our baby which was really helpful. We loved the Ocean view suite and enjoyed laying out in the hammocks on the deck. My mom & grandpa weren't as fond of the Garden-view room which felt less private due to its location, however Jose did offer them a chance to change rooms midway through our stay. The best part of staying at Casa Playa Mann is the hospitality. As others have mentioned, the breakfast is excellent in both the diversity of items they offer and the quality of the food. Jose goes above and beyond to help you out while you stay with him. He ordered food for delivery for us on two separate occasions and took care of everything for us from ordering to payment. He also helped arrange a day of activities for my mom, grandpa, and baby with an English speaking guide because he knew they didn't speak a single word of Spanish. His restaurant recommendations were excellent and we ended up going back to a few of the places he suggested. Lastly, he was beyond sweet to my one-year old. By the end of the trip she was asking for him by name and would laugh whenever she saw him. He would keep her entertained in the mornings while the adults finished their breakfast, teach her about the plants on the hotel grounds, and gave her a few flowers from some of the plants. Everyone in my family was blown away by the level of hospitality we received at Casa Playa Mann. If you're looking to feel taken care of I can't suggest Casa Playa Mann enough.…
What a wonderful hotel! Jose and everyone made us very welcome. We were very tired from our past few days of travel and adventures on the mainland of Ecuador,so we were especially happy to arrive at Casa Playa Mann. Our room was very clean, had everything we needed and our balcony was so nice to enjoy. Jose made arrangements for transfers to and from the airport which was so appreciated. We highly recommend Casa Playa Mann. Don’t miss breakfast!
This is one of the best hotel stays I have ever experienced. The hotel itself is lovely with natural wood touches and colorful flowers. The family has provided inviting hammocks and hammock chairs at strategic places which encourage relaxing and socializing. They provide a fresh and filling complete breakfast of fruit, yogurt, toasted quinoa, eggs, breads, cookies, and juice, coffee, and tea. But the best part are the owners. They are so friendly and warm and have the knowledge to give the most informed advice on what to do in the amount of time and ability one has and how best to explore the island. And they have the contacts to make things happen for whatever one needs. Thanks to José and the whole family!
Family run hotel with amazing service throughout and amazing views from the top floor. Very helpful on organising tours, recommendations, etc. Located next to Playa Mann and very close to Tijeretas which adds to the experience, and close to the port. Very nice stay.
Casa Playa Mann is located a stone's throw from Playa Mann. It also is in walking distance to shops and restaurants as well as Tijeretas. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our room had a huge balcony with hammocks and a cool hammock chair with a beautiful view. This is a family run place and they make you feel like you're part of their family. We would stay here again if we visit another time.
This small cozy B&B is perfectly located between a town and a beach , both are a short walk. The hotel is family own and run, nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. For a little extra we got an ocean view room at the top floor - highly recommended! Definitely will come back.
Casa Playa Mann has an amazing location. It is steps from an incredible beach where there is beautiful snorkling. A very short walk aways is the Interpretation Center (tells you about the siland and gateway to fantatic hikes and more snorkeleing) and the town. Location, location, location. And then there is the fantastic service provided by the family owners. We interacted with Jose for the booking process, but he was traveling internationally to share his work at the Interpretation center on local culture. His sister, Lu, took great care of us chatting and making great restaurant and tour recommendations. The accommodations are not luxurious, but comfortable. The daily breakfasts are hearty and wonderful Try the toasted couscous!
This was our favorite place that we stayed on our trip to the Galapagos! The hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful. They also speak English well which is a huge perk if like me your Spanish isn’t very good. The location is perfect, breakfast is amazing and the ocean view rooms have a spacious deck that’s perfect for watching the sunset. We love Casa Playa Mann!
Wonderful place to stay, well located, best breakfast (ask for coconut drink!) and owned by a very kind family who are very knowledgeable about the island and assist with taxis and tours. They remembered little things like food preferences that made the stay feel like spending time with family friends.
