After spending one night in Victor Hugo hotel we wanted a more economic hostel. Nantu was right next door and we were immediately drawn to the friendly atmosphere and the fact that they offered food and drinks. We got a little cabana for $30/night and it was worth it for the privacy, wifi and great service. Every morning we had...

Trendy hostel on the beach front at the quieter end of town. Has a good bar (seriously a rarity) overlooking the beach and excellent cocktails. Service is really friendly and the pizzas are good too. Double rooms from $30, pool and jacuzzi.

Very friendly, helpful staff. Andrea speaks excellent English, which makes checking in, calling mototaxis, etc. very easy. Great breakfast (fresh fruit, hot rolls, eggs, tea, coffee) in second floor dining area with a great view of the ocean included in price. Once all the construction in town is completed, it will be an even nicer view. Jacuzzi was great for...

Prices are decent ($40/night for a couples cabin), but they do not have potable water so be careful bathing and brushing your teeth! The location is great right in front of the beach, but they close the gates to the entrance of the hotel early, like before 10pm. We had a good stay here until the last night of our...

I stayed at Hosteria Nantu for three nights during a recent visit to Ecuador. The room was clean and the owners and staff were friendly and helpful. There was an atmosphere at the hotel of respect and spaciousness that was perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable visit. I enjoyed speaking Spanish, but if you prefer English Andrea is fluent in...

The location of this hotel is right off of the beach; however, between the hotel and the beach the town is constructing a malecon. The noise was horrendous when we arrived; it was so bad the main building was shaking as we sat and tried to find alternative accommodation on our ipad. The hotel had not warned us of the...

“It's a small propert and there are lots of special rooms”

“The rooms in back are better value, with a/c.”
 of 5 bubbles rosalindb651, 26 Feb 2015 | Read review
“While you might be able to get a room just dropping by, more likely you will need reservations due to Nantu's popularity. If you prefer a certain room, definitely make your reservations as far in advance as possible. You can also request rooms with an a/c ( a few have comfortable fans which has always been fine for me).”
