Stayed there a few months ago. Me and my friend was supposed to stay a week but extended for a few more days. Spanish lessons were held in the back yard and yoga just as close. The breakfasts were wonderful. A little bit pricy but you get what you pay for! Retreat-feeling :)

Stayed here for a few days, could have stayed for weeks!! A great, relaxed place away from the chaos of 'town' but only a short walk down the beach to the party if you want. The breakfast is great and different every day, the beach is a 30 second walk, along with a killer sushi joint and the Montanita Brewing... More

I've stayed 10 days in Casa del Sol and could have stayed much longer. It's 10 minutes walk from town, because of that the hostel is in a calm part. It takes a 2 minutes walk to the beach which is also much calmer then the beach in front of the town! Near from the hostel it has great restaurants... More

It is true.. "we want, what we want".. a big bed, clean rooms, strong wifi, food for the heart, and a warm smile. Not something we always receive but when we do, we feel right at home. For the past 9months I was witness to all of these things plus a little more. Tamara (owner-operator-yogi) has created a philosophy behind... More

Casa Del Sol is incredible! Staying there is like spending time with family in paradise. Whether it's surfing daily, learning Spanish, taking a yoga class or sitting around the common areas and chatting with the myriad of interesting travellers it feels good to be there. The rooms are clean, well maintained and are a welcomed spot to sleep in peace... More

Tamara and her staff have created something special at CDS. I stayed for four weeks where I surfed the perfect right of La Punta, studied Spanish with private tutors, took yoga classes with some of the most knowledgable instructors I've ever had, partied at the infamous "Cocktail Alley" and met the most fascinating myriad of travelers, adventurers, yogis, ponderers, linguists...

I spent a week in Montañita before I discovered the hidden jewel that is Casa Del Sol. I immediately fell in love with the place and people, I originally booked in for one week which quickly became three. Located in front of the best surf spot in Ecuador at the point (la punta) this hotel is a quaint 10 min... More

I suspect all the five star reviews here are from the owners friends.. the room was absolutely disgusting. the cramped room had no air circulation, smelled of mildew and mould throughout the bathroom. Empty light socket with no bulb. $50 way too much for this POS ..can find much cleaner and cheaper elsewhere.

I am sorry that you had an unpleasant experiance with us here at Casa del Sol. Had you expressed your discomfort in your currrent room, we would have been more then happy to move to to one that met your standards. Generally rooms with a/c, for obvious reasons, have more air flow and less humidity. Those are available at the... More

An initial three night stay turned into an amazing two weeks at Casa! All the staff are really friendly and make you feel at home straight away, the rooms are cleaned daily and the facilities great. Breakfast is really good and something different every day. A 5-10 minute walk down the beach takes you into the centre of town with... More
