Victor Hugo Hotel sits right next to the bay of Puerto Lopez, tantalizingly close to where the humpback whales migrate with their calves from June to September. The active marine life makes this a popular area for boating tours as well as fishing trips.

One of the most popular destinations for sport fishing is the Machalilla National Park, where you can experience fishing for some of the enormous species that thrive in the cold waters of the Humboldt Current, including tuna, marline, and wahoo. If you’re not a fisherman, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy with the popular whale watching trips in the area. It’s a short walk from Victor Hugo Hotel to restaurants, shops, and a fresh fish market.
Rooms here have a boutique feel, combining bamboo and brick in an interesting contrast of textures. You can book more luxurious rooms that come with views of the ocean and private Jacuzzis. More modestly priced rooms overlook the garden. All of the rooms offer room service and come with private bathrooms. There is Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel.
There are a couple of wholesome activities on the grounds that cater to families, including a games room and a book exchange. Retire to the comfortable lounge to socialize or watch TV. You can also find a bar and a welcoming restaurant that serves generous portions and has a free breakfast every morning.
When you’re ready to check out but still have a tour, you can leave your suitcases with the hotel’s handy luggage storage. If you have business to conduct, let the staff know you’d like to book one of their meeting rooms.
