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

Delicious different breakfasts every morning were... 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.

I stayed at Casa del Sol for 2 weeks in early December and loved my stay there. The hotel’s location is perfect if you are looking to stay in a quieter part of town (the area known as The Point). But, have no fear, the town with a fun night life is only a 10 minute walk on the beach.... More

The vibe in this place is amazing :) I spend around a week there and loved every day. Junito and Tamara where very good hosts when we arrived there. I would totally recommend to take Yoga class while you stay in there!

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
