My husband and I just got back from Ecuador. One of the places we traveled to was Canoa, Ecuador. We stayed at the Canoa Beach Hotel and we would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Canoa. The place is literally on the beach. It is secluded and private, the rooms are comfortable, nothing fancy but very comfortable with air conditioner. No TV and you don't need it. The pool area is fun and surrounded by trees and tropical plants. The bar/restaurant area is nice, cool and the food is really good. You got to try the Pizza! yes, no joking, the pizza is the best! Crazy but true.
The staff is extremely nice and want everyone to have a good time. Tulio, at the reception desk by the bar, is such a nice and funny guy. His daughter Leonela works there and there was another young guy, Bryan and both of them make great drinks. The owner Greg is also very friendly and makes a point to meet everyone. Oh, we truly appreciated that every morning, they have people cleaning the beach area. It shows they really care about their place. We are definitely going back to Canoa Beach Hotel one day.More
