Very peaceful stay. Unfortunately the power in the town was out when we arrived so check in was late but they allowed us to enjoy the property and use common bathrooms until our bungalow was ready. Breakfast is included in the stay. The bungalow we stayed in was labeled "seaside" which lead us to believe you could see the ocean...not the case. It wasn't a far walk across the property but I definitely wouldnt have classified it as seaside. Very close to Downtown Montanita so you can walk there and back either along the street or along the beach.

Charming hotel, with direct access to the beach, super reasonable rates and excellent food. It is located within walking distance to the town yet far away to allow you to rest undisturbed by the noise and craziness! The staff is friendly and courteous, all in all, highly recommended, we will definitely come back as soon as possible! 😍

I visited for 7 nights with 2 friends. We had a blast! The staff and owner are kind, friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious and clean. It’s a great spot just on the edge of town. I loved that it is close to everything when you want to go out on foot to enjoy Montanita, but just far enough away from the tourist noise to enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Also tons of hammocks to relax in... great chef and bar on site too! :)

Visiting Ecuador for the first time and friends took us to Montanita for a few days before heading to Cuenca.This is one of the most relaxed atmospheres that we have been in. Just a couple hundred meters from the center of town, but a world away from all the noise and constant bustle of the little party town. We loved ocean views and great hospitality. Sergio and his staff are so warm and welcome. I will never forget La Gondala and will make it back again. They also have an awesome bar with a chef that should be rated with 4 stars. We ate all but two meals there in four days.
