We stayed here for one night after getting an 8 hour public bus from Quito ahead of our journey into the Amazon. Everybody else on our Amazon tour had decided to fly in on the start day of the tour, but this hotel absolutely enhanced our experience!

The rooms were clean and tidy, the reception staff were helpful and spoke perfect English. The hotel served good food without a long wait. However, the special aspect to this hotel is it's garden. Arranged like a courtyard, it has multiple exotic and tropical plants and feels very wild. We walked around after a cracking tropical storm and within 20 mins had close encounters with squirrel monkeys, a humming bird and an agouti. This more than adequately whetted our appetites for the jungle and I would Guly recommend this hotel.

We (couple, 41 &50) stayed at Hotel Auca for one night in May 2014. We paid $55 a night for a cabana with private bathroom and air-conditioning. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also big and clean. The cabana had a small balcony overlooking the garden; we saw monkeys, agouti, and turtles in the garden. The hotel has a good restaurant. It is centrally located, a one minute walk from restaurants, shops and ATMs. Hotel Auca is nice hotel but a bit expensive. We would probablg stay there again.

It was clean and had great air conditioning. The biggest plus was the internet. The downside is that they charged high fees for stuff like corkage. Laundry was high but nothing was lost and it was in your room by the end of the day. All the service people were very helpful.

I stayed here at the beginning and end of a trip into the Amazon. The staff were friendly, communicative and helpful all along the process. They had great advice on the local area. The room was spacious with a mini fridge, ac, and hot water shower. The restaurant's food was good and they have filtered water available. Highly recommend!

This was by far the worst hotel of the 10 or so I have stayed at in Ecuador. The building needs to be refurbished. Don’t get a room at the front of the hotel. Very noisy and the AC did not work. We switched to the back where the AC worked, but there was no hot water during the day. The hotel did not provide drinking water. Everything looked sad and grubby.

On the plus side, the staff were all very nice 👍

Coca is experiencing an oil boom. The hotel was full of oil workers when we visited.

Definitely not good value for money.

We were told this is the best hotel in town. I recommend that you skip Coca altogether. You won’t miss much. It is not necessary to stay there before or after an Amazon lodge trip. Work with the lodge to ensure they coordinate your flights.

I have passed through coca a few times on my way to deeper in teh amazon and it's the only place I would stay, apart from its central location the place has a charm. I have travelled and had to hold meeting and also have travelled with my daughter who is 4 years old and the staff even after the first visit remebered her name and chatted to her. even the housekeeping staff made changing the towles fun for her. the restaurant staff even remeberd that she liked the high chair with Winnie the Pooh on it! the food is good, the restaurant consistent, the garden has free roaming animals and lovely trees. in short, it's great. on a business level I have held meetings there and had to arrange a large lunch which went withouht a hitch. the manager is very approachable and happy to deal with requests, even odd ones! totally recommend hotel el auca

Good location in the center of downtown coca near the park (could be a little noisy in the room but it didn't bother me or keep me awake). I stayed in the basic cabana room it was good and clean. The restaurant had great food. The hotel is very big and has a lot of rooms. I thought the price was a little expensive compared to other places I have stayed in Ecuador, but the price seemed to be on point when compared to other places in Coca. My room seemed to be on the boundary of wifi reception which led to some issues, but wifi work well when i was more in range.

I was in this hotel last week for business. When I went inside the room, all things were old and dirty. The towels and the bathroom were terrible too.
The bed and the pillow were too hard I couldn’t sleep all night for that and the noise.
The next day I had flea bites or something similar.

I wouldn’t go back to this hotel again.

Very well located, it is a rather large hotel so you can`t really miss it!
The TV stations are only local, but the Wi-Fi proved to be pretty good & stable.
Friendly front desk service and good food in the restaurant.
I stayed in a woorden "cabaña" style room, behind the hotel in the garden; but pay a bit more for a slightly better room in the main building. The cabañas are a little noisy with the street located right behind it.
