Great location, nice, clean, and quiet place to hang out. Easily the best location (on the beach) and price you can find on the area. Breakfasts are pretty standard and small, that could easily be improved by adding a bit of fruit and maybe two eggs instead of one.

We stayed here for three weeks. The owners are friendly and helpful. And the hostal is right in front of the point break at Montanita. This means also that it's location is a little bit outside of Montanita itself. That is great because you actually can sleep and don't hear the music from all the bars. Would stay here again!

We stayed here 2 years ago and had a terrific experience. It's not overly lavish, but the price and location are unbeatable. We even tried to go back last year, unfortunately it was a busy time of year and they were all booked up. We will be visiting in a few weeks and hope to be able to stay here... More

We stayed in the low season, fantastic rate for what we got. The best views of the point if you are a surfer. Carlos speaks English and Spanish and is very helpful. Breakfast is coffee, juice, toast and a egg. It is only a short walk up the beach to town but far enough from all the noise! This place... More

I've stayed at the Hostal Sole Mare about 5 times in the past 2.5 years. I am a Canadian living in Ecuador and Montanita is my favourite beach town so I like to go there as often as I can. Staying in the town of Montanita is a bit too loud with booming music and yelling vendors. Staying down the... More

The best thing about this place is the location, its right on the beach in the quieter northern part of town. I can sit in the hammock and look at the waves here all day long. There is also great surfing right in front, either the beachbreak or the pointbreak for those more experienced. The place has great outdoor lounge... More

We had a room with ocean view which was nice. The beds are good, the shower is hot and they clean it whenever you ask. The breakfast is good with eggs, marmelade and toast. And you have breakfast in the garden with hammocks and lounge place. Also the staff is very helpfull. They helped us with translations, telephone calls to... More

I was with a group. I had my own room. The room was very basic, which is fine. No AC which is really needed...the fan just doesn't do it. I layed sprawled atop my bed at night to stay comfortable. My real issue is the 'service'. Just as I was getting settled in my room, I raised the blinds to... More

We stayed 5 evenings there and we had a great time. As people said, rooms need to be asked to be clean which is not a problem once you are told, so, no problem at all. The rooms are clean and fresh. Carlos (the owner) is a gentle person and helped us with whatever we needed. Prices to eat at... More

The location is great and the owners know that the view from their property is awesome and that's probably why they don't care much about making it a better place. But it needs a lot of improvement! When we arrived the room was impecably clean and smelling fresh. We stayed 4 nights and only got the room cleaned once, and... More
