I arrived in Montanita (minus my luggage – thanks again LAN) and Gaby helped me with speaking to the airlines. I loved the private classes and was very accommodating to re-arrange my classes to suit my socialising and surfing. Absolutely love MarAzul Spanish School & I would recommend it to any one going to Montanita, thanks again Gaby! :)

Signed up for two weeks of Spanish lessons, stayed for three! All three weeks were with Gaby who was an excellent teacher and broke everything down very clearly. I had studied Spanish with an instructor and on my own for 6 months prior to visiting Montanita, but the Spanish immersion, one on one instruction at Marazul was more conducive to... More

Absolutely love MarAzul Spanish School. Gaby is amazing and takes care of you from the start. The curriculum is easy to follow and the teachers are patient and very good at what they do. Studying in Montanita can be a distraction because of the constant party atmosphere and the lure of the beach but the school is situated just far... More

Well even before I arrived in Montanita Gaby was trying to help me find somewhere to stay. Once I arrived Gaby was so great and invited me out for dinner on my first night before I'd even started the Spanish lessons. The lessons were really great, I had group (just two of us) and private lessons and everyone was always... More

After a week at the other Spanish school in town, we were so happy to change to this school and study with Miguel for a week. We were so much happier in this smaller, friendly school. Service is personal, rates are reasonable, and everyone is so nice! Miguel made class very interesting and fun and has a great personality and... More

Marazul Spanish School offers an excellent personalized learning environment. The teachers are well trained and cater to the needs of each student. We spent four weeks at the school and learned heaps. We covered all three verb tenses and conversational basics. Montanita is a party destination, however, the school is located away from the town´s center. This helps facilitate an... More

After studying for 1 week at the Montanita Spanish School in a class of 6 people and hating it we contacted Gaby and signed up for 3 weeks studying with her. This was the best decision we could have made. Gaby is such a great teacher and just a lovely person in general. We spent 4 hours in the morning... More
