We arrived at Nantu after an eight hour journey. When we walked in we first saw the builders in front of the hotel. Next we saw the woman in the reception. She didn't smile and asked several times who we were. After she found our booking she gave us the key, the remote controls for airco and tv and poined...

Location -a few short blocks from Puerto Lopez center-makes all the difference as far as noise factor, especially weekends or holidays.Not only Nantu is clean and charming, but also the only hostel with its own generator -back up for power outages, which are common in the area. During this past Easter weekend we had full lights, AC and music, while...

Wonderful place to stay, despite construction right out front. There is construction happening on the beach that strechtes for quite aways with barriers between the beach road, so no view of beach, which is OK as the beach is very trashy. You come to Putero Lopez to go out to the islands to see the birds. Nantu is very comfortable...

I stayed four nights at Nantu and I really enjoyed it. It is a relaxed, clean and friendly place. At the time of my stay Michelle gave free yoga lessons in the morning. I absolutely loved it! Unfortunately she will not stay there for a long time, but if you visit within January 2015 you might be able to enjoy...

We wanted to go to The Victor Hugo hotel next to Nantu, but we took a look at Nantu as it was looking really nice. It was much cheaper than the Victor Hugo hotel so we stayed there and went one night for diner to Victor Hugo, which wasn't very good. The room of Nantu was nice with very nice...

A bit distant from the main attractions at the boulevard, this is a friendly place with good parking and a decent breakfast. Rooms are kind of modern and there is a pool, albeit small. Decent value, with 2 friendly cats on the premises; for the feline enthusiast.

We really enjoyed our time there. The cabin was cozy and romantic. The service was excellent, nice food, good athmosphere, we had wifi, TV, towels, everything clean and tidy. The frontdesk-cat was adorable. We highly recommend the place.

Very nice rooms, and very clean bathrooms. The view is amazing, and the people very hardworkers. They are all polite, and are always concerned about the quality of the service. The beach is nice, and clean just like the pool. They have an cctv system, all over the place, so I didn't worried about anything at all. The food was...

“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).”
