Hotels in Santa Marianita Reviews

4.6/510 Reviews
I went to Santa Marianita this year in August and stayed for couple of days at the Soga's and I loved it. The hostel has really good vibes, is very comfortable with a chilling area, pool and nice rooms. The sea is just about a 3 minutes walk - so perfect, too. But the best of this hostel is definitely the owner Oswaldo. He is super friendly and the wellbeing of his guests is the most important thing to him. He literally would move mountains for you in order to help you, as it was in my case. I've had some troubles, and he was helping me, although I was not living at his place anymore - THANK YOU AGAIN! So yes, definitely recommendable to stay there! :)

Despite reading the prior reviews to not go to this hotel, my partner and I choose it because of how friendly and responsive Andres, the owner, was when I contacted the hotel with questions. Andres even lowered the rate for our 5 night stay, helped with transportation to the hotel, and made arrangements for a birthday cake surprise for my partner. The prior reviews have valid points; yes, this hotel is clean, it has a lovely pool area, a pretty good kitchen and menu, and a killer location but it has serious flaws that cannot be overlooked. Even with such a nice owner. If only he were there to oversee the place. Arrival and check in was pleasant as was the ceviche and cold beer to satisfy us after a long days travel from Cuenca. We sat to rest by the pool to enjoy the quiet and sea air. We had the entire pool area to ourselves. Within 10 minutes, the bartender comes up to us with a group of 5 young Ecuadorians, telling us we can’t sit on these 2 lounge chairs because these people have rented it. The “weird” thing is these 5 people choose to literally circle in front of us, obstructing us some, from leaving the chairs, in an obvious intimidating manner. The bartender remained silent and there. We choose to say, “excuse us”( in Spanish) and leave. On our way to our room, we stopped at the front desk to get the WiFi code. The group followed us, interrupted the clerk and asked her if we were complaining. Thankfully, she gave them a sharp look and said no, only internet. We retreated to our rooms overlooking the pool. The group left the hotel grounds and sat on the beach not at the chairs they removed us from. We understand it is common practice to pay fees for pool use, etc., so these young girls and boys were in their right to ask us to leave “their” chairs. What wasn’t right was their obvious intimidation attempt at the old Gringos and a staff allowing it to happen. It doesn’t make a traveler feel safe, let alone appreciated. I’ve traveled SA and plenty of Ecuador for years and not once did I feel threatened as I did here. As the incident did not escalate and for logistical and practical reasons we stayed. Truthfully, I’d rather we hadn’t but we made the best of it because there are a few really good things about the property. Breaking it down: the good Fantastic location on one of the prettiest beaches in Ecuador. Take a walk down to the rock cliffs at low tide in the morning, watch the colorful sails of the kite surfers doing their tricks flying off of high waves, sit in a cabana on a sunny day and have your feet rubbed for $6, sip a cold beer and order the shrimp and rice or ceviche fro the kitchen and eat it at the beachside table under an umbrella, gather rocks. Food: yes, I agree with two he prior review, considering the hotel rate, breakfast is nothing to write home about.👎🏼: Toast is cold white unbuttered toast, only scrambled eggs. A better way is to offer a choice from the menu or have a little variety, at least a bolon, please.
