Tamara, Casey and the rest of the staff of Casa Del Sol couldnt be more awesome. I stayed with a friend for 3 night in June 2014. The hostel itself is gorgeous and well maintained. The rooms are all comfy. We had hot water for every shower. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and different every morning. This hostel... More

We visited over carnival weekend so wanted somewhere slightly away from the large crowds in the town centre. This was the best place we could have picked. It's a 10-15 min walk along the beach from the centre to the end where there's less people but still some lovely bars including fresh sushi and a beer distillery. At Casa del... More

I stayed at Casa del Sol for over a month and I love it there. The staff is lovely and it’s a great location- La Punta. Steps from the quieter, surf pro end of the beach and a ten min walk to the town- or take a free bike. Just 2 blocks to the bus stop where you can catch... More

I loved staying at Casa del Sol. My plan to stay two nights turned into a week and a I ended up coming back twice, staying a total of about 7 weeks. Casa has it all, especially for a solo traveler looking to meet new people but stay away from the noise of the main strip. I loved the location... More

Nothing makes a place special more than people do, and the casa del sol family is perfect. located near the point, a short walk away from party central (if you like that sort of thing). The place is great, communal style dinners, yoga studio, surfboards, and the staff is a group of the most pleasant and honest people you will... More

I'm so happy I stayed at Casa del Sol. It's the perfect place to stay in Montanita. I was here a month and couldn't have been happier. Great location (close to everything but off the main strip where it can get super loud) so you actually can sleep, yoga studio right at the hotel with amazing teachers and classes, delicious... More

I´ve been back to Ecuador multiple times in the last two years.... and every time I find myself at Casa Del Sol. It is hard to be objective considering that Tamara and the entire crew at CDS are like a family to me but let me start with the plain hard facts. Location: CDS is at the Point. Which means... More

I stayed here with a friend during the off season and our room was dusty and grubby. There was no table, just a sofa and a plastic chair. Upstairs there was a bedroom that smelled like mold, the sheets on the bed looked clean but the spread looked like it had never seen an airing, never mind a washing. There... More

Simply put, staying at Casa del Sol was a pure treat. After spending my first night in the heart of town I strolled less than 10 minutes north along the beach in search of a more peaceful retreat and found exactly what I needed at Casa. Five days of yoga, spanish lessons, surf and delicious meals were all arranged there,... More
