Beautiful beach but remote

  • 3 of 5

Accommodations were OK. The bed was not big enough for two people but there was a set of bunk beds and I slept there while my husband slept in the bed. The beach was very close and very beautiful. The location was very quiet with no close restaurants other than beach tiendas.

Made at home in San Clemente, Vistamar La Boca.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Ecuador to investigate if we would want to retire here. We had a very quiet Cabana at Vistamar with kitchen. It was very clean and comfortable with evening breezes. Back gate led directly to several kilometers of sandy beach stretching to the Puertoviejo River. They included us in their family get together at Christmas and New Years Eve and helped us with our Spanish. They became long term friends for us here.

We liked Ecuador so much we purchased a home in San Clemente and are doing the documents to allow us to stay.

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in manta we were promptly greeted by our host and driven to our cabana. Upon Arrival cold water and fruit display awaited us... My wife and I chose this place because we wanted a peaceful and restful vacation....boy was it ever...we stayed 29 days and sat at their pool.... walked the beach on low frills.. A bus stops in front of the home and within 10 minutes you have small shops, restaurants, a friendly atmosphere..we chose the cabana as we did not want to be in the main building... A very good choice by my wife....a restaurant 2 doors down is open on weekends...very good food there as well as cocktails... Closes early be warned...the husband and wife team that run this ...really try to make your stay enjoyable..Eswado and Guirlene thanks so much...

Btw the pictures of the area are accurate.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Vistamar was a nice place to relax and do nothing at all but read relax and occasionally go into town to pick up groceries.

The villa was equipped with just about everything I need for my month stay except groceries.

This was a great place at a reasonable price.
