My husband and I spent seven weeks at the Sundown Beach Resort. Our intention was to spend two weeks, but it was hard to leave. Maria Elena and Juan Carlos made us feel like we were at home and there are a couple of permanent residents who showed us the area and made us feel welcome. I loved walking to... More

I spent six weeks at the Sundown Inn in January and February - I picked it as the starting point of a 5 month backpacking trip with the intention of learning some Spanish before continuing on - I am so pleased that I did! The Sundown Inn offered great value rooms and private Spanish tutoring with students from the local... More

I spent a month in Canoa at the Sundown Inn to learn Spanish. In overall it was a wonderful experience. I arrived semi-late and the owner Don and the manager Juan Carlos were waiting for me when I came. Although it was after normal closing time they showed me around and offered me a beer, which was nice after a... More

So I intended to stay a week or two, I stayed 6 and only left because they were all booked up for New Years. I was a little reluctant because I had read some negative reviews prior to coming. However the owner has recently retired and now lives on the property. I did not witness any glaring deficiencies, in fact... More

We planned to stay here for a week over Christmas and took Spanish lessons while we were there. We ended up staying more than two weeks and didn't want to leave at all. The rooms are seconds away from the beach, there are hammocks to relax in, tables to sit and eat at both inside and outside and a kitchen... More

Whether you want to just relax, be by the beach, learn Spanish, or enjoy Ecuadorian hospitality, the Sundown Inn is the place. I originally went there drawn there to learn Spanish, paraglide, and be by the beach, but what I got was so much more. Juan Carlos and Maria-Elena, as well as the rest of the extended family, were always... More

I signed up for a month, and ended up staying almost double that (as I'm writing this, I'm considering adding another week or two). I didn't want to leave, it's such a perfect little haven! Sundown is a family-run place, and Juan Carlos and Marie-Elena make you feel completely comfortable and at home. The other staff, the teachers, everyone is... More

I was really excited to arrive at Sundown! We received a very warm welcome, had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room (and porch with hammock) and looked forward to spending a week (at least) here learning Spanish in the mornings and relaxing in the afternoons. Everyone who works at Sundown was very friendly. The rooms were nice... More

We signed up for a few weeks of Spanish school and were impressed with the rooms, proximity to the beach and friendliness of the place. The place is 2-3 km South of Canoa (sit on the left hand side of the bus from Bahia and look for the US motel style sign - it's just after the second set of... More
