Safe and Secure, even during a massive earthquake!
The hotel is very nice and close enough to the beach. Definitely one of the top two of three places to stay in Manta. I unfortunately checked into the hotel two hours before the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador. I was out on the town and got lost in the chaos and darkness caused by the earthquake. After about 5 hours out n the street trying to stay safe I made it back to the Balandra and it was one of the only places in the city with backup electrical power, security guards, water, a functioning restaurant, and intermittent internet connectivity. I was there for the next two days and the staff at the hotel made everyone feel safe and secure while the rest f the city was devastated. I would definitely stay in this hotel the next time I am in Manta.

Great Value!
Highly recommend the ocean view. The room was extremely clean and the bed and bedding was superb. The mini fridge was very convenient. The bungalows are nice but no privacy on the balconies. There is no ice on the floors but just phone the restaurant and they will bring some with a smile. The complimentary breakfast is very good. I always had a freshly made omelet and toast. Both are hot. The buffet food is good, but not hot. If the coffee is not hot enough the waiter will accommodate you. There is outdoor seating with ocean view that I particularly enjoyed. Pool is fabulous and clean. The gym was modest but ample for my needs. If you have any problems, track down Lisette. She will handle it! Also there is no complimentary shuttle from the airport. Some websites say so, but it's not true. A gratuity is added to your bill automatically, so no need to tip unless you have extraordinary service. There is a Supermaxi 10 minutes away by foot to stock up on essentials (beer!) This is definitely the place to stay in Manta!
