Good, clean, safe place to stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were pretty clean and well air-conditioned. The prices were fair and the breakfast was good. Would definitely recommend it. Make sure you get a card from them with their address on it so that when you are coming back to the hotel your taxi can find...

Friendly staff check, clean and comfortable room check, pool check, free wifi check, trasty breakfast check. The owner, a nice lady helped us out and was extremely helpful. Had a garage for our car with night guard.Its located in a nice quiet part of town but close enough to several restaurants. Will come back and recommend our friends for sure!

We had three visiting teams come to serve in June and July in Manta after the April 16 earthquake. All 3 groups stayed at Marina Real. They were able to rest well in comfortable beds. They enjoyed the pool area. Breakfast was good, and easily adapted to their needs. There is 24 hour security, and the hostal did not suffer...

Quiet family place with a nice pool, good security and very friendly staff. It's not high end, but comfortable and well priced. Owner is nice and friendly and also a good healthy breakfast with...

This is such a great little hotel to stay at when exploring Manta area! The room were very spacious which I thought was a bonus as we had just come other accommodations which were limited for space! They keep the rooms very clean and well maintained! We loved the location as it was close to a lot of restaurants, the...

When we have small groups from the USA visit us in Manta, we have them stay at Marina Real. We recently had 8 people from Virginia stay there. The rooms were clean and cool. They slept well. The outdoor area was very nice, and breakfast was good. The location is safe and convenient. The price is right. The owners and...

....and I have seen every one of them in the nearby vicinity in the same price arena. Each one has its "best feature" but if you could see all of them as I have, the best outdoor ambiance is clearly Marina Real Hostal. It is the only one I've seen that appears to have been well thought out on the...

I was in Manta looking for a condo to buy and because of former reviews on Trip Advisor I chose this hostel to stay 2 nights. Actually I arrived on the first flight from Quito at 7am and was allowed to have a room immediately even though check-in time is noon. They even served me breakfast and in the end...

Small hotels in Manta are generally called Hostels - don't be confused by what we used to use in Europe during our college days. Marina Real is a delight. Comfortable rooms that are clean and the very best part - Diego and his staff! So kind, helpful, accommodating and very kind with my VERY rough language skills. Breakfast in the...
