On a recent visit to Ecuador, I had the distinct pleasure of staying at Casa del Sol for one week. Located on "the point," this cozy hotel was exactly what my boyfriend and I had been looking for. Not only was it the perfect location (far enough from the craziness of town, but close enough to walk - and just steps from the beach), but the rooms were bright, clean and comfortable, and the food was the best we'd had in Ecuador (everything is fresh, healthy and homemade from scratch). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the vibe of other guests and local visitors was very much reminiscent of a "family" atmosphere. Even though the town is quite close, we found we preferred to spend our evenings on the patio of Casa del Sol (drinking cold, cheap beers) chatting with other travelers and the "locals" who have now made Casa del Sol their home-away-from-home ... which is always a great sign!
The owner, Tamara Allers, went out of her way to make sure we were well looked after - and she couldn't have been more generous, caring or hospitable if we'd asked. It's no wonder that people seem to flock to this place. With everything they have to offer, and the quality of service they provide - there really is no other place I would ever recommend. If you're planning a trip to Montanita or surrounding area, this is the best (the ONLY) place you should stay!
