Some improvements needed
It is quite nice in general and customer service is courteous but some improvements needed - the internet signal has been in and out. The safe deposit box is not working, Besides bible, they should have a hotel directory and DirecTV gulde.

4/10 Fair

I used to stay at this hotel and always had a good experience. Well located and quality of service. But in this last stay I was disappointed to see that the quality has been reduced and it’s no longer competing with other high level hotels in Manta. They need to renew the facilities to keep up. Will probably stay somewhere else next time.
