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

What was intended to be a 7-day stay at Casa Del Sol learning Spanish at Casa’s own Spanish School (Marazul), quickly turned into a unforgettable 3 week adventure. Reluctantly my boyfriend and I had to leave to continue our voyage further south so dragged ourselves onto to an early bus to Peru . Two weeks have since passed and we... More

I spent a month researching beach towns in Ecuador and the hostels in them. My boyfriend and I were looking for a place where we could relax, meet great people, eat good food and try new things. When I stumbled upon casa del sol I knew I had found what I was looking for. Eat, sleep, yoga, surf! What I... More

This is one hostel that people return to over and over again. It has a great aura...... With awesome yoga instructors and fabulous staff it makes everyone feel like its home.... This is my 3rd trip to the Punta of Montanita and there definitely will be more.
