Baja Montanita borders on a luxury hotel. I was in the Royal Suite which is a huge room with new finishes and furnishings. Also an extra large bathroom. Great towels. Room needs a safe. Great balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. The bar was great... happy hour cocktails were well poured and good sized. I had a very HAPPY... More

This is by far the best place to stay in Montanita. It has the best location (right on the point) and away from the noisy town. The rooms are very clean and all have air conditioning. The hotel has a pool, lounge chairs on the sand, out door bathrooms and showers. The two bartenders are the best in town and... More

Let me start by saying there is nothing wrong with this hotel. Clean rooms, clean grounds, friendly staff ok food. The problem is, this hotel charges a premium. One of the more expensive ones along the beach. The room was big enough for a bed. Not much more. There was no place to put luggage on. Had to be on... More

Had a one night stay whilst on the way to Salinas. Very pleasant room albeit somewhat basic by UK standards. All staff very welcoming - nice food too. Location right by the beach - busy night life in town with backpackers everywhere enjoying themselves. Wish I could have stayed a little longer. Many thanks to all who looked after us... More

We planned a family getaway and the location of the Hotel Baja Montana was great, at a quiet location at the end of the beach. We had booked 3 rooms and all were ready when we checked in. The staff were friendly and showed us to our rooms. The rooms are basic which was fine but we were not there... More

We visit the hotel once a month for the past few months, because of the absolutely perfect location. We love Montañita but would not dare to stay in the center with all the noise and heavy party at night, so Baja Montañita is absolutely in the right place. However the rooms are in serious need of improvement, specially the bathroom... More

Thank you Marco and Staff. The hotel is just amazing, located at the end of the beach away from everyone. Chef was amazing, Pizza place located on hotel grounds is best I've had outside of Italy. I definitely highly recommend staying at the Baja Montanita, You will not believe you are in Montanita. 5 Star Hotel all the way as... More

The hotel services were great! Clean rooms and bathrooms... The beach sunset is breathtaking and the atmosphere is unreal. Fairly priced. Surfing lovers paradise. Hotel personnel is young and friendly

I will gladly accept your money if you would like to waste it. Or, perhaps you could stuff several 100 dollar bills into a sock and feed it to a monkey. Or, just stay at hotel Baja. Same thing. Throw away your money and get almost nothing in return. I would rather sleep on the beach than stay here in... More

Baja Montañita, perfect location at the end of a beautiful beach, nice waves for surfing or swimming. We had the last bungalow or cabana # 12 on the top floor, balcony overlooking the ocean, clean with a comfy Queen bed and 2 twins in the back room, ac's in both rooms, flat screen tv with Direct tv., a small fridge...
