Esmeraldas is the major seaport of northwestern Ecuador, and it lies on the Pacific coast at the mouth of the Esmeraldas River. The fishing industry is also an important economic indicator of the region, and includes species like corvina, snapper, lisa and tuna. The province of Esmeraldas is known for its beautiful beaches, exuberant landscapes and warm and humid climate, Esmeraldas is hotter than Manabí, its rich in tropical fruits and typical seafood, the locals work in the fishing, agriculture, and tourism. They sell their handicrafts in the sea. Here you can find cheap and expensive hotels, these are near or far from the beach, you choose, their food is very delicious and cheap, the people are friendly and charismatic with the tourist. In Esmeraldas, you discover other attractions include Atacames, Saami, Muisne, Quininde and Tonsupa this place is exciting and beautiful. Next to the beach you will find some bars, where you can dance with your friends, have beer, whiskey and wodka, and some delicious tropical fruit juices and milkshakes.
Esmeraldas offers tourists at all times of the year tame and shallow waters; The variety and beauty of its landscapes, in the sea it is possible to practice multiples sporting activities as water sports, paragliding, swimming, boat rides and canoe, water skis, sea and river fishing, also you can not miss the encounter with the humpback whales, who are visiting Ecuadorian waters. There are boats duly authorized to provide this service.
You need to know of this city, you will be surprised with its beautiful sunsets on the beach in the rivers or in the sea ports. You can not miss this opportunity, come with all your family, friends, neighbors to know the best city of Ecuador. If you do not know where to travel on your vacation, I have the solution Esmeraldas- Ecuador is your first place to visit, you will not regret it.
The “Green Province” is privileged with beach, rivers, mountains, ecology and friendly people. You have to go to this place.

Do not expect them to tell you.
“Esmeraldas has all the you need”

If you are in Atacames, don't stop here, people just watch the hotel and make the mistake about restaurant, food really bad taste, fried fish very dried, Arroz marinero ( rice and seafood) with taste to soy sauce, PRICES TOO HIGHT FOR QUALITY, don't eat here, the presentation is good but for 3 rand price than here you can get better and fresh sea food

Estimado huésped,

A nombre de todos los que conformamos la familia El Marqués queremos agradecer el tiempo que se tomó en compartir su experiencia con nosotros.
Revisaremos la receta del arroz marinero comentándole que para este plato usamos "Oyster sauce".
En cuanto a los precios, estamos apenados que el servicio no haya complacido a su bolsillo. Trabajaremos intensamente en mejorar este aspecto.

Bienvenido siempre.

Atentamente

The infrastructure, the view, location, the food, and the people working there, all is ok if you wanna relax on vacation, I never thought to find a hotel like this in Atacames, I've been in others like this in Salinas but this one is wonderful.

El Marquess is no doubt the best hotel in atacames. The Common areas and my room are Very clean. Maybe a little old fashioned, but charming nevertheless. The wifi is ok. The viel is spectacular! The prices in the Restaurant are a little higher than in neighbouring places, but hey... if you combine These places, that is totally fine!
The price for the room is quite high, but I would say it is worth it... if you can afford the Marquess, you should stay here!

The exterior / building was beautiful so I was a little bit disappointed with the room. But after 2-3 days, I was able to appreciate the homey feel of the room.

Most of the hotel staff don't speak English but they are still very helpful and accommodating. You might practice your Spanish.

Breakfast is buffet type. Though quite repetitive but there are many choices to choose from.

Gym was okay. Pool is crowded during the weekend.

Only problem is during the carnival, music and festivities from the beach can be heard until 2-3 am. So if you are on a business trip, it may be a difficult for you to sleep.
