I don't normally write reviews but I felt our time at La Gondola warranted a review. We had an amazing time! We stayed for one week with a ten year old boy. The location was perfect for us, the room was great, the bar area was fun, the beach was fantastic, and the people were

Planned to stay a day or 4, turned into 2 weeks hahaha.... Life simply doesn't get any better than this place. Bamboo houses fully equiped, amazing family, at the quite place of town right at the beach. The beers & cocktails are cold, the sea warm and the cats & dogs happy AF.

We have stayed at Hosteria La Gondola twice now (once back in March of 2017, and then just recently in January 2018). We went back, because we loved our first experience there earlier this year. This place is the definition of a relaxed beach town lodging. The amenities are

Can't say I have ever seen any kids there, but I also don't see any reason why the would not allow them. As other member said, best to just email them. They are usually good at responding quickly.

"Casa Verde, rm 2 is great! No AC but with the windows open you get a really nice ocean breeze which is MUCH nicer than AC."
"We liked the cheaper bungalow number 6. The bedroom is upstairs, but bungalow had a comfortable porch IN THE SHADE which kept the place cool and secluded. Nice and quiet."
"Las mejores son las que miran hacia la playa."
"The rooms toward the ocean have awesome ocean views and a nice small lanai with table and chairs. You will sleep great with the sound of the surf all night and not loud music."
"Casa verde hab1 for a couple. Casa Amarilla (2 rooms) for groups."
$45 - $80 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
