The spot is perfect: close enough to Montanita that you can easily walk if you feel like partying, but far enough that you can sleep at night. It's right by the break for those uncrowded early morning surf sessions. It's safe, there are a few good restaurants close by. The breakfasts are great. The staff is amazing.

My girlfriend and I had a narrow window in which to take a vacation to celebrate her birthday and new job. We heard about Montanita from friends who had stayed at Casa Del Sol before. From the moment we made contact through their website to the day they put us in the car that would to take us back to... More

Myself and my gf booked in here well in advance of arrival as it would be at the beginning of our year long trip so we decided to pay a bit more for what we expected to be a retreat like experience and get us off to a nice start. While our room was nice with fan and a/c and... More

Hi Paul, Firstly thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback regarding your stay with us back in July. We're delighted that you enjoyed the Spanish and Yoga classes, and we know the breakfasts are great too! It's a real shame that at the time you were here we did in fact suffer from a shortage of...

We stopped for lunch after visiting Parque Condor. What a lovely, clean gem of a restaurant nestled mountainside. Fabulous views of Otavalo. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Wait staff extremely helpful and efficient. Highly recommend.

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
