This place was just amazing. Idyllic, quiet, extremely attentive staff, accommodation was fantastic and the food out of this world. Very quiet and nothing in the local area but worth going just to stay at this hotel. I could not recommend this hotel more - absolutely incredible!

I had the opportunity to stay in this amazing place for 5 days in July 2015. We could enjoy an incredible view of the sea! The staff is really kind and the food is really good! I like the fact that this is a privative hotel that offers bungalows but also rooms into the hotel. My family and I had...

1. Value for money. NOT worth it. 2. There was a massive cockroach in our bedroom. One would think they would take measures against that when you pay that much money. 3. We were supposed to pay a little under 300 dollars when we booked the room. Once checked in, a staff member approached us and said our booking arrangement...

It has been the best place I would ever think to go and relax at the Pacific Coast of Ecuador. The entire personal is attentive, very proud of what they do, the many possible activities like horse riding, fishing, walking by the beach in the early morning before being served the Breakfast and its homemade bred. Delicious real expresso !...

My girlfriend and I just spent 5 days at Tanusas, and it was one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. The food: every meal has multiple courses created from ingredients either grown in the garden or fished from right off the shore of the property. To say the food is remarkable is understating it - it's more...

What a retreat! Superb location, fantastic villas, very nice, lonely, sandy beach, great waves, spa. All this you can see on the website etc. But the REAL surprise comes, when you get there: visit the half a hectar vegetable garden first, which caters for 80% of the guests culinary needs. Taste some of the fresh vegetables. An explosion of aroma...

I vacation a lot on the Ecuadorian coast, and until I discovered Las Tanusas I hadn't found an experience that was superior to renting an apartment. Not only does Las Tansusas have a great private beach, the gastronomic experience is incomparable. You really are eating at one of Ecuador´s finest restaurants, and the focus on sustainability is admirable. I´d highly...

Let me first say that the location of this property is truly idyllic....beautiful beachfront setting on gorgeous deserted beach. The accommodations were very nice and the staff was well trained, friendly and extremely helpful. The food is either freshly caught from ocean, freshly picked from their organic garden or made on property. It is deliciously prepared by highly talented chef...

This is a small hotel, which guarantees safety, privacy and great service. Rodrigo and Dayra are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to please their guests. All meals of the day are included and the chef and kitchen staff plan the menus ahead taking into account your preferences. I liked every single dish I was served, from simple...
